Must we always do the Washington Post's homework?

31 Aug

Yesterday’s Washington Post hit piece on Bob McDonnell referenced McDonnell’s grad school thesis, which the Post didn’t bother to look for until Bob brought it up.

But the article says:  The 93-page document, which is publicly available at the Regent University library, culminates with a 15-point action plan that McDonnell said the Republican Party should follow to protect American families — a vision that he started to put into action soon after he was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates.

So let’s look at what Bob McDonnell did as a Delegate.

Virginia Virtucon:  Let’s Talk McDonnell’s Legislative Record…

Here’s the summary:

  • 81. 82% (316 bills) – Economy/Jobs, Transportation, Budget/ Spending, Healthcare, Education, Public Safety/ Justice
  • 2.07% (8 bills) – Abortion

Seems like in the days of the failing newspaper industry the first people The Washington Post let go were their researchers.
