Cantor Condemns Violence; Kaine Seizes Fundraising Opportunity

25 Mar

Virginia Virtucon has the story: Cantor Calls On Kaine To Stop Fanning The Flames Of Violence For Political Gain

Cantor’s statement:

This violence, real or imagined, is helping no one. But the fact remains that the left is orchestrating a campaign for political gain. They’ve done it before. Over on Facebook a friend posed a link to a Moveon.org call for Republicans to condemn the hate. I responded:

Every Republican leader I’ve heard has done just that. Including my Congressman Eric Cantor whose campaign office had a bullet come through the window the night after the vote.

Or maybe we could ask Bart Stupak who before he sold out his vote, was receiving hate mail and threats from people on the left.

As for Moveon.org, it’s a case of “physician heal thyself” or a case of clean up your own house before you clean up mine.

The media and the left ignored the calls to kill George Bush, ignored the “Snipers Wanted” caption under his picture on Craig Kilborne’s show. I could show you dozens of pictures of George Bush with a bullet hole painted on his head, or an effigy of him in a guillotine. Does any of that justify the comments from the right, if indeed that’s where they’re from? Of course not.

Pay attention, this is an orchestrated campaign to take attention off the fact that the majority of the American people do not want this legislation.

Violence and hatred is never justified, so yes, I’ve been hearing conversatives and Repuiblicans and the official Tea Party leaders repudiating the hate and attacks all day long. I just read a statement from Virginia’s own Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli who was the first to challenge Obamacare in court. Unlike the left, we DON’T tolerate it.

I could also show you a video several years back of Nancy Pelosi saying “we welcome dissent” when referring to anti-war protestors.

But, in spite of all the rhetoric about hate and attacks that may or may not be happening Congress still hasn’t reallized one thing – the American people are pissed off.

I’m not in the business of making threats or advocating violence. But I am working my backside off to produce justice come the November elections.

You stay classy Tim

“I’m surprised,” Kaine said. “I thought Ken had his hands full discriminating against people and raising wacky questions about President Obama’s birth certificate.”

You forgot to say “Neener, Neener. Boo, Boo.”

The real question now, with the margin of victory as large as it is, will McDonnell have a mandate?

Contests serve as warning to Democrats: It’s not 2008 anymore
The Washington Post

On Tuesday, Virginia moved back in the direction of Republicans, a reminder that the political landscape is far more fluid than it appeared to be a year ago — and a challenge for the White House and the Democrats as they look toward 2010.

Dems, incumbents get wake-up call
Politico

Tuesday night’s trends were emphatically not in Obama’s favor. Among those paying closest attention are dozens of Democrats who won formerly Republican congressional districts in 2006 and 2008 and are up for re-election in 2010.

The Obama magic has faded
The New York Post
And — until it started looking as if they might lose — the Obama people were suggesting that these races would seal their mandate and encourage congressional wafflers to toe the line on health-care reform. Not so much, as it turns out.

Disregard The Talk Of VA Voting Against The President’s Party For Gov.

Do you see a pattern emerging here? When GOP candidates run on specific issues of importance to people in their every day lives, they not only win, but they win BIG.

Virginia Voters to Tim Kaine: Take a Hike!

3 Nov

But wait, he already did!

Kaine Takes a Hike
Style Weekly

Kaine, who voted at 7:30 a.m. at Main Street Station, afterward took a hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains. At Nelson County’s Crabtree Falls, to be precise. It’s a well-known habit for Kaine, an avid outdoorsman, to go hiking on Election Day, and a tradition for Virginia governors to take the day off as well.

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

20 Oct

disaster
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.

Funniest post I’ve read in a long time.

Delegate Bill Janis Is looking forward to the McDonnell Deeds debate…..Rumor has it that Creigh is getting so desperate that he’s considering bringing Tim Kaine into Virginia to campaign for him….

The one where we agree with Tim Kaine

7 Oct

Here’s Gov. Tim Kaine on Sheila C. Johnson openly mocking Democrat Creigh Deeds for his stammer:

“It was unfortunate,“ Kaine told reporters. “Sheila’s a friend and she apologized, and she said, “look I shouldn’t have done it.‘ And look, we all make mistakes.“

Kaine said he did not think the McDonnell campaign needed to apologize “for something a supporter says. Sheila did—I read the statement she made. it sounded like it was appropriately sincere,  so I think it’s passed.“

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.
