VA-9: Obama Loves This Democrat!

Posted on | October 1, 2010 | 3 Comments

Dumb Democrat Week continues as we highlight Rick Boucher, the Virginia Democrat who voted for cap-and-trade.

Incumbent Problem #1: Boucher represents an Appalachian region of rural southwest Virginia where coal mining is a vital industry and thousands of local jobs would be lost if cap-and-trade becomes law.

Incumbent Problem #2: When the House adjourned without voting to extend tax cuts, guess which Blue Dog decided he could afford to give Nancy Pelosi the key vote for adjournment?

Incumbent Problem #3: The 9th District went 59% for John McCain and Obama loves him some Rick Boucher:

A couple of guys I know are working for the campaign of state Sen. Morgan Griffith, the Republican challenger in the 9th District, and I hope to get down there to cover the campaign on the ground soon. But before you hit my tip jar, hit Griffith’s first, OK? He looks like a winner.

    4 days ago he was less than 3 points down.

    How in the fuck is this Dem. nimrod ahead at all. The three points you made in your post would make an ad good enough for Griffith to win by 10.
