How many cows did it take to produce this letter?

22 Oct

Honestly how many animals are needed to pile up this much B.S.? We won’t bother refuting the letter. If you’ve been paying attention, it’s obvious.

An email from the President:


Virginia, it’s time to get fired up. I’ve just announced that I’ll be visiting next Tuesday to rally you and your neighbors in support of Creigh Deeds and our movement for change. Creigh Deeds has offered real solutions to address Virginia’s challenges in transportation and the economy, and it’s up to us now to build the support that will make those solutions a reality.

We made history here in Virginia last year. Together with your neighbors, you built a movement in order to move this commonwealth and our country forward.

But from day one, we knew we were working toward something far greater than simply one election. It was about changing the way politics in our country works — from the bottom up, face to face, one conversation at a time. And it was about getting beyond the divisiveness and petty politics that have kept too many out of the process.

That promise is now ours to keep.

Election Day in Virginia is less than two weeks away, and you have an important choice to make — not just in how you vote, but in what you make of this important opportunity to create change. We can take a giant step together toward keeping that promise of a better future for Virginia by doing all that we can to elect Creigh Deeds as the next governor.

Join fellow Virginians in keeping the promise of change alive by volunteering for Creigh Deeds.

We’ve worked too hard and come too far to let Virginia slip back. Creigh Deeds has embraced the movement you started by speaking directly and honestly to Virginians about the challenges ahead and the ideas that will move us forward.

His record of bringing people together to create solutions to difficult challenges is exactly the kind of change we built this movement to achieve — and it’s exactly what Virginia needs now.

But it’s up to you to make sure that your friends and neighbors know the stark choice they face in this election by making calls and knocking on doors. And it’s up to you to make sure that those we helped to vote and get involved for the first time in Virginia last year do so again now.

We know firsthand that we can win elections in Virginia the right way — one real, thoughtful conversation at a time. But we also know the only way it can happen is when people who believe in our cause step up and get involved. That means this year, right now, it all comes down to you.

Help keep the promise of change alive by getting involved and building support for Creigh Deeds in these final two weeks:


Thank you,

President Barack Obama

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.

Washington Times: Deeds dwindles

EDITORIAL: Deeds dwindles
The Democrat gets desperate in Virginia governor’s race

The Washington Times

Memo to Creigh Deeds – If an admirer compares you to a tested wartime president, that’s gratifying. When you compare yourself to Harry Truman, you look small and desperate.

Every editorial from Virginia newspapers pointing out campaign whoppers trims the Democratic gubernatorial candidate a little further. By the time Monday’s debate hit the airwaves, Mr. Deeds needed to sit on a phone book to look the moderator in the eye.


Deeds' Camp: Deck Chairs. Rearrange. You know the drill.

13 Oct

deckchairsSo says Lowell:

In other news; according to what Kyle’s hearing, almost all the negative stuff – TV/radio ads, call/walk scripts, and literature – is being pulled by the Deeds campaign (I’ll believe it when I see it). Supposedly, it’s being replaced by ads similar to what we saw at the end of the Democratic primary last spring, including ones that tell us who Creigh Deeds is (the slogan “letting Creigh be Creigh” reportedly is being bandied about). Let’s hope.

We’ll see.  Desperate times call for Desperate Deeds.

Deeds points finger at Washington

“Frankly, a lot of what’s going on in Washington has made it very tough…We had a very tough August because people were just uncomfortable with the spending; they were uncomfortable with a lot of what was going on, a lot of the noise that was coming out of Washington, D.C.”

Washington D.C., where Deeds’ party is in control.

When down in double digits, blame your staff…

Asked about a statement he made earlier this year in an interview with WJLA and POLITICO, in which he said he would like to face his Republican rival in a debate, Deeds faulted his campaign…“I don’t have anything to do with the schedule…”

Dueling Ads

6 Oct

From the DNC…

Is history sort of repeating itself?

Because this poll was taken just this past weekend, we know that Jerry Kilgore’s dishonest negative ads are backfiring on him. With no positive message to deliver and voters tired of politicians who sacrifice honesty for political advantage, Jerry Kilgore’s support has fallen while Tim Kaine’s has continued to rise.
