I just saw the summary of the Conservative Intel poll on the Virginia governor’s race (thanks to Hot Air for this news, too) and it is good news for the Libertarian:  He’s still drawing ten percent (and about the same amount are undecided) and the analysis says two things – this first about the numbers: […]

When Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell strong armed Virginia’s lawmakers into a massive tax increase, one of the “selling points” the McDonnell Administration used to spin the financial benefits for Virginians was that the gas tax would drop by 6 cents, saving consumers a lot of money.

Terry McAuliffe Abandons his Wife While in Labor to go to a Party. What a Heel.

In terry’s own words. Talk about a war on women, this guy takes the cake. If he abandons his wife and child just when they are the most vulnerable and need him the most, what would he do as Virginia Governor? We already suffered through an Absentee Governor in Tim Kaine. Let’s not make the […]

Gov. Sam Brownback Delivers Weekly Republican Address (And he Should Stop Including Va as a Republican Success)

Charles Battig: ‘Thanks Governor McDonnell. April Fool’s Day Came Early This Year’

“April Fools’ Day” came early this year.   Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell, a professed conservative Republican, together with the Republican-controlled House of Delegates, betrayed their loyal Republican constituents as “Fools of Deception.”  In the waning hours of the legislative session they produced a transportation bill praised in the press by Democrats Tim Kaine and wannabe- governor […]

Did Bob McDonnell Establish Ethics Commission?

Politifact has published their verdict of Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell’s campaign promise to establish an entity to oversee ethics issues and violations and concluded that McDonnell has broken that promise.

We hope not, but given the fact that Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell is often named on everyone’s short list for Vice President, and his strong support for Virginia’s anointed Republican candidate Mitt Romney, it is a question that is being raised often in Pro-life circles.
