” Tuesday’s results were not good for folks living in New York City or Virginia. The former will be saddled with a communist sympathizer for a mayor, and the latter will have to suffer with having a crook for a governor. The most that New Yorkers can hope for is that Andrew Cuomo prevents Bill de Blasio from finally bankrupting the city. The most that Virginians can hope for is that the law finally catches up with Terry McAuliffe.
For those of us who do not reside in either place, however, there is a silver lining. Ken Cuccinelli ran a terrible campaign until very late in the game; the Republican establishment failed to give him the requisite support; and the government shutdown infuriated the federal workers living in Northern Virginia, causing them to turn out for the Democratic Party. The good news, however, is that, if he had had a week more, Cuccinelli would nonetheless have won. His surge in the last week of the campaign was a function of his decision to make Obamacare the issue on which he ran.
Had Cuccinelli won, there would be panic in Washington, and it might even have affected the White House. But he lost, and Barack Obama is nothing if not vain. This is a man who cannot admit that he made a mistake. Anyone else would have dumped the Attorney General who brought us Fast and Furious. Anyone else would have cleaned house in the State Department after Benghazi. Anyone else would have made Kathleen Sebelius jump off a cliff.”
The accompanying illustration says it all : ” If you can’t see freedom , you suck.” So what does that say about the GOP in recent years ? All they can sell is their souls to the lobbyists .
” Speaking to a crowd in support of Virginia Democrat Terry McAuliffe Monday, Joe Biden once again disparaged a conservative movement about which he knows precious little.
In his effort to demonize McAuliffe’s Republican opponent in Tuesday’s gubernatorial race, Biden trashed the traditional values embodied by the Tea Party movement, implicitly describing those involved as uneducated rubes.
The statewide race “has captured the attention of the entire nation,” he said, claiming the reason is a widespread disapproval of “the new Republican tea party.”
He went on to describe the patriotic movement as one in which “social recidivism is only outgunned by its hostility to science and technology and innovation and scholarship.” “
Crazy Uncle Joe must not have gotten the memo , but then again we guess it’s hard to stay informed when you spend most of your time locked in the basement .
On another note , what does it say about the dem’s confidence in their candidate if the feel the need to let Uncle Joe grab the mic ? He was certainly “without exaggeration” spreading the manure far and wide .
” Earlier today, the Cuccinelli Campaign obtained excerpts of President Obama’s prepared remarks for the campaign event with Terry McAuliffe. In case you or your organization did not receive a copy of the below, we are providing it to you as a public service.”
This is just too funny … where do you suppose this came from ?
” A Cajun restaurant in Leesburg, Va., has become the latest eatery to offer discounts to gun owners.
The Cajun Experience, a downtown establishment with a menu heavy on crawfish and gumbo, started offering its special “Open Carry Wednesday” promotions several weeks ago, according to Leesburg Today.
Owner Bryan Crosswhite told the outlet that he was offering the 10 percent discount in an effort to promote the right to bear arms.
“I’ve seen what the restricting of freedom is all about,” Crosswhite said. “It’s our legal right to carry. I want it to be [my customers’] right to carry in our restaurant.”
In an interview with NBC 4 Washington, Crosswhite said it was his customers who came up with the idea.”
Back in February we reported on All Around Pizza Deli in Virginia Beach where proprietor Jay Luze was offering a 15% discount to all who packed heat in his establishment .
