Excellent Overview Podcast Of Virginia’s Tax Debacle

Coffee and Markets serves up a thorough, insightful review of just how thoroughly jacked up Governor McDonnell’s Folly was. The way that the bill was never released for public review before the vote, alone, is just the beginning of what a complete Benedict Arnold move Ol’ Bobby just pulled.

And it worsens as the details unfold. What a betrayal, Governor, of Virginia and conservativism. We really deserved at least a bit of foreplay there.

Ken Cuccinelli for Governor

His campaign slogan has been reduced to “WTF?”

But instead of simply making his pitch and picking up a few business cards from potential donors, Cuccinelli was all but dressed down by two fellow Virginians.
Kilberg, who is close with Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, spoke first and noted that the state has become “purple.” She pointed out that McDonnell has sought to govern in the mainstream. But then she wondered aloud if Cuccinelli’s crusading brand fits Virginia’s present political and demographic reality.
Shapiro spoke up next and was even tougher on Cuccinelli. As a hushed room looked on, Shapiro, who sits on the board of the influential Northern Virginia Technology Council, said the state’s centrist-oriented business community won’t back the Republican standard-bearer because he’s out of the mainstream.
“Gary just slammed him,” said one attendee.

Hey, Politico, if you don’t think we see right through the character-assassination, think again.

    If you’re taking flak, it means you’re over the target.

    “state’s centrist-oriented business community”

    In NOVA? This is a joke, right? Because they are almost all a bunch of government teat-sucking leftists.

    Mark Levin took Shapiro and Kilberg apart on his show yesterday.

    Sadly, The Right Scoop doesn’t have up the audio for this particular segment, but you can.listen to the whole show here:

    So, the fix is in. Cuccinelli won’t be allowed to win. The Lt. Gov will more than likely launch his independent bid in order to “save” the party from Cuccinelli.

    Thanks for the link.

    I’m done with Right Scoop and their Catholic bashing.

    Technically, they banned me for disagreeing that General Lee was the greatest man ever….lol. But Scoop said he would let me back in if I begged him.. LOL….that place is worse than Redstate now with only homogenous thought allowed.
