The Money Keeps Rolling In...

Anita Kumar

National groups are reporting that they are spending an astonishing $1.6 million this week in the Virginia's governors race.

The Republican Governors Association reports giving another $750,000 to GOP nominee Bob McDonnell.

The Democratic Governors Association reports giving another $850,000 to Common Sense Virginia, a political action committee set up to oppose McDonnell.

Both McDonnell and Common Sense Virginia are airing TV ads across the state.

The tally for those keep tracking at home:

The RGA has now contributed a total of $1.95 million to McDonnell, who has no primary opponent. The DGA has now contributed $2.15 million to Common Sense Virginia, which formed to spread the word about what it calls McDonnell's "conservative legislative record" and his close ties to religious broadcaster Pat Robertson.

Subject: The incompetence, dishonesty, and penchant for political self-destruction of the extreme right, pseudo conservatives never cease to amaze!

The bright light of truth has once again exposed the Lies of the Right!

Finally, a group of reporters has shown the courage to cut through all of the political spin (lies) and report the truth. Check out:

Wow! The ignorance of the obstinate, right-wing extremists, aka pseudo conservatives, seems to be growing despite the efforts of many to expose the political spin (lies) and report the truth!

Hey Dummies! Virginia should take the $125.5 million now and use it to strengthen our unemployment insurance program. Yes, $20 million will be used through 2010 to aid many, unemployed Virginians, who were permanent, part-time workers or who are in training programs, but that is a good thing! In the latter part of 2010, the General Assembly will have more data on the true costs of these additional unemployment options and can decide, then, to continue them or repeal them.

If Virginia does not take the $125.5 million, then it will go to the states, whose legislators are more interested in aiding and protecting their unemployed constituents than in playing self-serving, stupid, political games!

In personally convincing the Republican Delegates and Senators of Virginia’s General Assembly to vote against taking the $125.5 million, Bob McDonnell has shown his preference for stupid, self-serving, political games over the best interest of Virginia’s citizens and his inability to make the tough but correct decisions needed to properly lead Virginia!

So, I do want to see Bob McDonnell as the Republican candidate for Governor in November; however the Republicans may want to reconsider their choice.

Have a Nice Day!
