Election 2009: Carpathia steams to rescue Titanic, but is it too late?

20 Oct

With poll, after poll, after poll showing Bob McDonnell (as well as Bill Bolling and Ken Cuccinelli) with a commanding and potentially runaway lead, and from what we’re hearing more devasting numbers out tomorrow [Virginia Virtucon: More (REALLY) Bad Polling News Due Out Wed. For Deeds], the Deeds camp sent one final S.O.S. to the White House that had previously seemed to be turning a deaf ear to Virginia.

Sensing the potential embarrassment of losing a state that last year voted for a Democrat for the first time in 40 years, President Barack Nicolae Carpathia Obama will reportedly campaign with/for Deeds in Hampton Roads on October 27th [Bearing Drift: Sources: Obama Stumping for Deeds in Hampton Roads Oct 27th].  But as we asked is it Trick?  Or Treat?

It seems that the once unsinkable Democratic ship has hit the iceberg and is taking on water faster than Barack Obama can grow the national deficit.  Republicans hold commanding leads in all three top races and it’s looking more and more like there will be GOP gains in the House of Delegates.

It was said of the Titanic that “even God could not sink her.”  God disagreed.

And last November Virginia was declared to be a “Blue State.”

But it appears that the Democrats just don’t have enough lifeboats.

    All along I have said this was McDonnell’s race to lose. He has run the better campaign, he has been able to communicate his ideas more clearly than Deeds and he has effectively used the poor economy against the Democrats. The interviews in the current issue of Style magazine illustrate this point, McDonnell comes across as a serious candidate with well thought out answers, and Deeds appears to be an amateur. I think this race has less to do with Virginia being a “Red” or “Blue” state and more to do with McDonnell being the better candidate.

    My biggest question is will McDonnell govern from the center-right that he has campaigned upon? And if he does stay closer to the center, will the farther right leaning elements of the House of Delegates support him?

    As an aside Micheal, how do you reconcile comparing the President to a fictionalized version of the Anti-Christ with a Christian’s responsibility to avoid spreading gossip, rumors and slander?

    I think Bob McDonnell will do exactly what he says he will do in his campaign. To the extent, at least, that he can (your comments on the GA).

    As for my snarkiness? Kyle, you’ve been reading here far too long to not recognize what is tongue in cheek. Had you followed the links to the articles of last year you’d know that 1) I don’t think that Barack Obama is the antichrist and 2) I don’t have a lot of praise for the whole “Left Behind” series.

    Is it edgy? Sure.

    But when faced with a President who is breaking his own campaign promises left and right, trying to suppress first amendment rights of legitimate news organizations just because he doesn’t like their reporting style, who presenting a weakened America on the international stage and who is growing our national deficit by leaps and bounds, then I think a little snarkiness and a little edginess is appropriate.

    And sometimes it’s just that snark, that edge that sarcasm that is exactly what is needed to bring some light to the truth.

    Do I think he’s the antichrist? Don’t be silly.

    But I bet they’re friends on Facebook.
