Happy Halloween

T'was the night before elections
And all through the town
Tempers were flaring
Emotions all up and down
I, with a bathrobe and a cat on my lap
Had cut-off the TV
Tired of political Bull-Crap!

When all of sudden there arose such a noise
I peered out my window
Saw Obama and his boys
They had come for my wallet
They wanted my pay
To give to the others
Who had not worked a day!

He snatched up my money
And quick as a wink
Jumped back on his bandwagon
As I gagged from the stink
He then rallied his henchmen
Who were pulling his cart
I could tell they were out
To tear my country apart!

On Fannie, on Freddie
On Biden and Ayers!
On Acorn, on Pelosi
He screamed at the pairs!

They took off for his cause
And as they flew out of sight
I heard him laugh at the nation
Who wouldn't stand up and fight!
So I leave you to think
On this one final note

Tim Kaine Says Democrats are "Nuts"

Former Virginia Governor, and current Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine, recently said that Democratic candidates who are ignoring their party and policies are “nuts”.

"I do think Democrats thinking that they can, you know, hold the Democratic label at arm's length, I do think that's nuts," he said. "You put the label after your name, be proud of it."

Yet again, the Democratic Party proves that they are crumbling. The head of their party is calling his own members “nuts” for not being loyal to their party. The candidates however realize that by remaining loyal to their party, they cannot win an election. They do not believe in the policies they voted for, and are scampering to sweep their track record under the rug. If the candidate does not believe in his own policies, how can the general public?

VA GOP Caucus says thank you Tim Kaine for asking the Democrats to embrace their faltering party. The Democrats should let the people know how they voted, and why.

Oh, and PS…let Obama know that after he campaigns for Tom Perriello, if he could please, please, please go campaign for Glenn Nye and Rick Boucher too.

Morgan Griffith Takes Over Lead in 9th Congressional District

Our own House Majority Leader Morgan Griffith has never stopped fighting to win his election, and for all his fight he has recently taken the lead over 15-Term incumbent Rick Boucher. The survey, done by SurveyUSA, shows Griffith at 47% to Boucher’s 46%. It’s a very tight race, but this poll shows the growing trend that voters are leaning Republican come Election Day.

Among voters who told the survey that they are uniquely interested in voting this year, Griffith leads at an almost 2:1 margin. The relative sizes of these groups will determine the winner, but this data provides great optimism and motivation for the last week of campaigning.

How is it that a 15-Term Representative cannot seem to win this fight? Clearly Boucher was not ready for the determination and tenacity that Griffith brought to this race. Griffith wants this seat more, and has shown this throughout his campaign. He cares about the constituents of the 9th Congressional District, and wants to serve them better than Boucher ever did. Griffith would keep in mind the better interests of his constituents when voting. Unlike Boucher who in the past voted to support cap and trade, which would negatively impact the coal industry that is so vital to SW Virginia.

SurveyUSA goes on to say that...
"Compared to four previous tracking polls, Independents have broken sharply Republican in the campaign's final week. The number of Republicans crossing over to vote for Boucher has steadily decreased, from 26% in July to 18% today. The number of higher-income voters voting for Griffith has steadily increased, from 43% in July to 49% today. Also, Boucher's lead among women has evaporated from a once 23-point advantage".
The GOP is poised for victories across the state, and the nation. This survey goes to show that Republicans are well on their way to leading this country again, and getting it back on the right track. For more information on the poll, please click this link.

Internal Turmoil Amongst the Democratic Party of Virginia

Since the recent announcement of DPV Chairman Dickie Cranwell’s resignation, it has been widely believed that Brian Moran would take over as the DPV Chairman. However, this has some Democratic Party members worried and questioning the selection process.

Del. Joe Morrissey has been the most outspoken about his displeasure, going so far as to call out former Governor’s Tim Kaine and Mark Warner, who have been reported to be backing Brain Moran

With due respect to former Govs. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine, I think they should have tried to determine what the roughly 5 dozen Democratic lawmakers who are up for re-election next year thought about the next State Party Chairman”

Sounds like Del. Morrissey seems worried, and rightfully so, that Brian Moran lacks the skill to win elections outside of Arlington County, as Moran's race for Governor proved. The Democrats again show that they are headed towards a downward spiral, with no clear leadership and turmoil amongst their party.

Goodbye Dickie

Virginia Democratic Party Chairman Dickie Cranwell is resigning this coming December.

I wonder what made him make this decision. There are countless reasons why, but maybe it was because...

1) Democrats have become increasingly apathetic towards the coming elections in November.

2) Republicans Morgan Griffith, Robert Hurt, Scott Rigel, and Keith Fimian will all be winning their respective Congressional races in just a few short weeks.

3) Earlier this year Del. Roxann Robinson and Del. Tony Wilt easily defeated their Democratic counterparts in their Special Elections.

4) In the 2009 elections, the Republicans swept the ticket by electing Governor Bob McDonnell, Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling, and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.

5) In those same elections all but one Republican incumbent seeking re-election won. The Republican majority also increased by 6 seats, and welcomed 12 new Caucus members, bringing the total to 61 members.

The Democratic Party does not have much to look forward to either, as Brian Moran is likely to fill Cranwell's seat. If one recalls, Moran came in third place in the Democratic nomination for Governor. Looks like the Democratic Party is slowly falling apart, while the GOP is steadily gaining ground throughout the state.

The Cap and Trade Crackup

A recent article in the Wall Street Journal outlines how Democrat Rick Boucher's vote in support of  cap and trade has made his race an uphill battle, and his seat a toss-up. A seat he has held safely for nearly 30 years.

Boucher hails from SW Virginia...coal-country. The cap and trade bill is designed to crush certain industries, namely the coal industry. Voters have realized this, and are angered over the issue. Boucher believed his seat was safe enough that he would be able to support cap and trade, and in doing so he could pull other reluctant Democrats to join him in support. This support earned him a shout out from the White House as well.

However, what Boucher did not anticipate was a heated race with House Majority Leader Morgan Griffith. Griffith has made sure that voters are aware of Boucher's decision to support cap and trade. In doing so he has made this race extremely competitive. In a desperate attempt to keep supporters Boucher voted against ObamaCare, has recently supported the Bush Tax cuts, and has tried to make excuses for his support of cap and trade.

With only a month left until Election Day, this race appears to be as close as any race in the nation. Griffith will not back down, and is poised to take away a pivotal Democratic seat.

Nancy Pelosi Prepares to Smear Business!

As the election nears, Speaker Nancy Pelosi discusses her plans to "tattoo" those who produce jobs in America.....
“You have to understand what fighters our members are,” Ms. Pelosi told a group of columnists late last week. Indeed, she ascribed the Democrats’ political travails to their refusal to “play patty-cake” with powerful economic interests as they pursued a health care overhaul, new regulations for the financial industry and energy legislation capping carbon emissions.
“Now our challenge is to tattoo the practices of big insurance, big oil, big banks and the rest” onto Republican opponents, Ms. Pelosi said. “And our members feel very good about doing that.”
