McDonnell to deliver State of the Union response for Republicans

The Republican Party has selected new Virginia governor Robert F. McDonnell to deliver the response to President Obama's State of the Union address later this month.

McDonnell is seen as a symbol of the national resurgence the party is experiencing following years of Democratic gains and President Obama's easy win in November 2008. The Virginia governor has been mentioned by some as a potential future presidential candidate.

Full text of the press release from the governor's office:

Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell will deliver the Republican Address to the Nation, immediately following the President's State of the Union Address. McDonnell is delivering the Address at the invitation of Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) and House Republican Leader John Boehner (OH). The Address will take place on the evening of Wednesday January 27th. Further details regarding location, coverage and exact time will be released in the days ahead.

Oh wow, this is great!

I hope so much that he is going to talk about the "plan." You know, that "plan" we heard about every 30 seconds last October about how he was going to fix everything without paying for it and selling the state liquor stores for $56 TRILLION?

C'mon, you all remember the "plan."

Oh, that's right.

That plan is so dead and buried that even the Smithsonian can't find it.

That didn't work out so well a few years ago when just-elected governor Tim Kaine delivered the rebuttal.

Another, really - really bad day for the DEMOCRUDS.

I just got an advanced copy of the rebuttal speech:
"Ma fella Amurrkins, AH AM AGIN' IT! Thank you, and good night."

Indeed...did he say "democruds"? It's razor sharp wit like that that makes Jay Leno seem funny.
Well, not really.

Is it just me or does anyone else think that the Libs are the cutest little creatures when they are spewing their snarky, vitriol retorts.

What a beautiful day :)

Dear Jesus, hear our prayers! Smite hip and thigh the ungodly heathen as they rage! (but thanks for finally getting teddy k to stop drinking).

Oh Lord, deliver us from the carpetbagger NoVa unbelievers and their illegal domestic employees! (yes, yes, we know some of them are named Jesus too, but You know the difference...)

Dear Lord, also please keep the unwashed masses from our pristine shores (no more darkies, thank You!)

Please perform some more of Your miracles and keep everything running just the same without any more taxes or cut backs (this should be easy for You)

And could You please tell Doug Wilder that the Massah wants him back in the house?

Amen.

Lets face the FACTS: Republicans have been and are utter complete lunatics

To see what Lunatics Republicans are consider some of their positions & beliefs

Republicans were and are for:

The Iraq War that has wasted, to date, $2Trilion dollar of our money set aside how many innocent people it has killed.

But Republicans are:

Against European or Canadian style Universal health care for American people, calling it "Socialism", and for our current bankrupting health care system which is taking 18% of the GDP while leaving 50Mill Americans without health care and even those who have health insurance find out that when they have a health care need they are hit with exorbitant co-pays & deductibles resulting in 2Mill Americans going bankrupt each year due to health care costs while in European countries that ALL have Universal health care ZERO people are going bankrupt each year due to health care costs AND health care is taking 8% of GDP and Europeans have a much higher life expectancy than Americans. For a complete description and analysis of why European or Canadian style Universal health care is MUCH BETTER than US style for profit private insurance based system you can read this article
which covers this issue in full so we do not have to spend more on it here.

So who but a total lunatic would state that providing Universal nationalized health care to Americans will bankrupt us when the EXACT opposite is true as ABSOLUTELY clear by all Europeans countries, Canada, Japan, Israel, etc. having Universal health care.
On this note to see what utter lunatics Republicans are consider the FACT that Republicans are 100% for Israel, they fall over themselves praising Israel and Israel has Universal nationalized health care. Or Republicans, in particularly as personified by their Dear leader Ronald Reagan considered Margaret Tatchers Conservative party in UK to be great and best representative of market economy and the Conservative party in UK is 100% for their Universal nationalized health care, more on these FACTS here.

And one can list dozens of other policies that Republicans are against which would invest in American people (middle class) and cities, such as high speed Trains, renewable Energy, etc. but they are for one War after another, which wastes American people's Taxes on well unnecessary Wars.

Dems have been hijacked by the intolerants of the radical left. The community organizer is clearly over his head & if Americans see enough of Harry & Nancy's incompetence this year & their 4yr reign of record disapproval of Congress comes to an end in 2012. Watching the libleft's bitter hypocricy & finger pointing over Mass is sadly entertaining

I take it the Party Of No creep Jindal was unavailable this year?

No matter. No doubt pink-faced McSh*tforbrains will provide all the comic relief corporate money can buy.

But seriously, why didn't they try to book pinhead Steele?

Seriously

If 88% of the USA voters has moved away from Republicnas and Democrats . They represent no majority with both remaining bases combined.

That is the STATE OF THE UNION.

Passing a bill without any majority representation of the people, is unconstitutional activity.

Ehat is the STATE OF THE UNION.

The People do not watch the Imposter in Chief anymore on television. Even stores in malls switch him off.
The NPD Sociopathic dual profile is out of attention. The crisis King has cried wolf too many times.

I doubt I will watch a Republican on TV either.

Both Partys are not welcome to serve, because their job was to help Americans make and keep money, not grow their empire on our backs.

.................

So, what's hypocritical about the "libleft's" reaction to this development?

I hope you'll come back and provide an explanation instead of dropping little Party Of No turds and cowardly scurrying away.
