Obama Retaliates Against Virginia

What is the price for opposing Barack Obama on Healthcare and Immigration?

Virginia found out on Monday. In a move straight out of Chicago Style Politics, Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced that the Joint Forces Command in Norfolk, Va would be closed down. Calling this a cost cutting measure, Gates admitted that thousands of Virginians would lose their jobs and the economic impact would be at least $240 million.

Almost immediately, Virginia’s Democratic lawmakers screamed foul. Even as they have supported the ObamaCare bill and sat silently as this Administration turned the Immigration problem into a political firestorm, they now act surprised?

No matter how much these Democrats scream and pretend to care about this economic blackmail, they still support the Obama agenda. Today’s vote to take money already appropriated to Food Stamps to give to the Union Teachers would have been a perfect opportunity for Virginia’s Nancy Boys to send a symbolic message loud and clear to Obama – We refuse to allow you to blackmail Virginia.

So, did any of the Nancy Boys stand up an draw a line in the sand? Are you kidding? They are right with Obama on more spending, especially if it means bailing out more Union workers, like the teachers. And starving kids are no obstacle. Besides, Michelle Obama says the little twerps are too fat anyway.

No, Virginia’s Democrats are content to pretend like they object to Obama’s heavy handed Chicago politics, yet they are happy to enable him at every turn.

So, is there any way we can stop the retaliatory closing of a Virginia Military Command and the loss of thousands of Virginia jobs?

Absolutely. Vote out the Nancy Boys on November 2, 2010 and put the adults back in charge of the House. Only then will this rubber stamp Congress finally begin working for the people, and not the left wing elitists.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
