Nails in the Tea Party coffin? Dinosaurs? Cuccinelli would have won if there were no Libertarian candidate even after being out funded by as much as 10-1. No one outside the Northern Virginia (populated with government employees) cared about the government 'shutdown', and they all knew they'd get paid once their minvacations were over. They've been there done that many times before. Married women voted for Cuccinelli by a margin of 9%. It was the Sandra Flukes in NOVA who gave McCauliffe the victory. But he only got 47% of the vote. So, NO, the Tea Party isn't dead or dying and Christie isn't the future if the GOP wants to actually win elections.
LOL. You don't get it Greg. But, that's typical. Have a great weekend.
Curious that an uber-statist POTUS who admires Lincoln so much wouldn't want to attend this function. After all, as H.L. Mencken noted about the address: "But let us not forget that it is poetry, not logic; beauty, not sense. Think of the argument in it. Put it into the cold words of everyday. The doctrine is simply this: that the Union soldiers who died at Gettysburg sacrificed their lives to the cause of self-determination— ‘that government of the people, by the people, for the people,’ should not perish from the earth. It is difficult to imagine anything more untrue. “The Union soldiers in that battle actually fought against self-determination; it was the Confederates who fought for the right of their people to govern themselves. What was the practical effect of the battle of Gettysburg? What else than the destruction of the old sovereignty of the States, i.e., of the people of the States? The Confederates went into battle free; they came out with their freedom subject to the supervision and veto of the rest of the country—and for nearly twenty years that veto was so effective that they enjoyed scarcely more liberty, in the political sense, than so many convicts in the penitentiary.” — Journalist H.L. Mencken, From “Five Men at Random,” “Prejudices: Third Series,” 1922, pp. 171-76: First printed, in part, in the “Smart Set,” May, 1920, p. 14
Not true as far as I can determine. Don't listen to BS from leftwing people or organizations. Do the research yourself if you are truly concerned.
Glad to hear that, but yeah, money is a problem for KC, which brings us back to the GOP and their overall ineptitude. Of course in KC's case the establishment GOP is probably shafting him from the background as well, since the establishment types hate conservatives more than the Dems. One of the ironies in VA is that the Northeasterners who move here are escaping the results of their leftist political views put into practice where they moved from, only to vote for the same policies that have driven them out of NY, NJ, PA etc, etc, etc.
Sad to say this, but it's true and consistent over at least the last 12 years or so, the VA GOP is as inept/willfully ineffective at marketing its candidates as the national GOP. Cuccinelli, who is a terrific candidate IMO, is invisible on tv and radio in my area and the web as well. Every time I click on a youtube video that creepy Mark Warner appears touting an even creepier McCauliff. I haven't seen or heard even one ad countering the Dems 'Cuccinelli hates women' BS, etc. Not one. With so many ignoramuses from the Northeast now living in VA you can't beat the Dems without effective advertising. The same thing happened to George Allen... twice.

And they would still elect Obama to a third term with over 90% voting for him.
Thanks for trying, Mike.
Conservatives always support the troops. Even the Dems/lefties learned that they must at least pretend to support our troops once Reagan was elected. Up to Reagan the lefties thought calling us war mongers and baby killers was good PR. To their chagrin, they found out the majority of the American public doesn't find those kinds of adjectives complimentary or good PR. This current planned for misadventure and lack of support for it has to do with the CINC and his cynical, stupid supporters, like McCain. HOW could people in AZ send that POS back to the Senate? Surreal.
No doubt about it, dropping bombs as a means of sending messages and shifting momentum has a track record of great success. We did this in Vietnam in the mid sixties. Anyone else here old enough to remember Operation Rolling Thunder? LBJ was sending messages to and shifting the momentum from, the North Vietnamese. As you know, I'm sure, Ho Chi Minh and his fellow communists gave up the fight. McCain was delivering a message himself a couple of years later when his plane had a catastrophic failure. Ho had the backing of the Ruskies and the ChiComs. Assad has the backing of the Persians and the good old Ruskies. Something tells me this little Syrian side trip won't end well. McCain should know better, but he's insane IMHO.... Oh wait, that explains it all. Insanity inside the beltway? Naaaaah.
But for all the government assistance programs we would be seeing bread lines and massive unemployment numbers like the Great Depression instead of the phony numbers the DOL puts out each month. Please wake up TH staff. We are in another great depression. Calling it what it actually is won't win you ANY friends inside the beltway, but you will be doing your country a service to tell the unvarnished truth.
