National Republicans flock to Virginia again

Anita Kumar

Several national Republicans are heading to Virginia, which this year is host to a handful of the country's top congressional races.

U.S. Sen. John Thune will headline a fundraiser for the Republican Party of Virginia next week. The South Dakota Republican will appear at the Hilton McLean at Tyson's Corner July 28. Tickets are $75, $125 per couple, with sponsorships starting at $1,000.

U.S. Rep. Mike Pence will be the keynote speaker at the conservative Family Foundation's 25th anniversary celebration gala in October in Richmond. Pence describes himself as "a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order."

Meanwhile, Republican consultant Dick Morris is on tour today with Americans for Prosperity in the fifth congressional district where they are campaigning against Democratic U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello. Morris will be speaking about Congress, the Obama administration and the climate of politics nationwide.

After winning the last election Republican Governor McDumber gave state government workers a shared $130,000,000 bonus. These lowlifes put the Con in Conservative.

I think it's sensible to forbid candidates for the senate and the house from taking money from any person or organization/business without a presence in their state (and in the case of organizations and businesses, a tax-paying presence). It burns me up to see some large, out-of-state entity waltz in and try to buy a local election.

..."Wow have the Republicans Party/NO" ruined you good/America, better be sure now you/run and put some more back in fools
last time I looked Americans getting ready to put them back in after they lost a record 8.5 Million jobs, left you/America a record debt/bill/deficit of $1.5 TRILLION and my favorite Republican fact the pew poll reported, then/left/town/office with the "LOWEST JOB APPROVAL RATING IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES PRESIDENCY 20 PERCENT/FACT!

..."After the Criminal record of the BlEW IT BUSH Admin...these facts don't matter to fools and I hope if the country is stupid enough to put them back in, then it deserves what it gets, and the Republicans sure do APPRECIATE IT."

Just keep voting right against yourselfs the Republicans sure do appreciate it...fools even as the Republicans deny help to 2.1 Million unemployed Americans who need help fools plan on voting for them, and if they do they get what they deserve, "NO" help from the party of "NO" and that's just what they deserve!

I hope all of you fools who think they have the best party in control as of today realize that this current administration has run a 2.4 trillion deposit and seeks to do more harm in the future. I am surprised to see the clear thinking people of Virginia who were once true patriots with leaders in congress who have little respect for the USA. They have taken over your health care and you are now subserviant to the IRS in your healthcare solutions. The democrats are taking us further left everyday and taking control of our lives, are you happy about that? All of congress is out of control and are not doing what is best for this country. They are more interested in being reelected.

I THINK IT IS REMARKABLE THAT WITHIN A WEEK OF TIGER WOODS CRASHING HIS ESCALADE, THE PRESS FOUND EVERY WOMAN WITH WHOM TIGER HAS HAD AN AFFAIR
IN THE LAST FEW YEARS, WITH PHOTOS, TEXT MESSAGES, RECORDED PHONE CALLS, ETC. AND, THEY NOT ONLY KNOW THE CAUSE OF THE FAMILY FIGHT, BUT THEY EVEN KNOW IT WAS A WEDGE FROM HIS GOLF BAG THAT HIS WIFE USED TO BREAK OUT THE WINDOWS IN THE ESCALADE. NOT ONLY THAT, THEY KNOW WHICH WEDGE!

AND EACH AND EVERY DAY, THEY GIVE AMERICA MORE UPDATES ON HIS SEX-REHAB STAY, HIS WIFE'S PLANS FOR DIVORCE, AND THE DATES AND TOURNAMENTS HE WILL PLAY IN.


OBAMA HAS BEEN IN OFFICE FOR OVER A YEAR NOW, AND THIS SAME PRESS:

STILL CANNOT FIND ANY OF HIS CHILDHOOD FRIENDS OR NEIGHBORS

OR LOCATE ANY OF OBAMA'S COLLEGE PAPERS OR GRADES

OR HOW HE PAID FOR A HARVARD EDUCATION

OR WHICH COUNTRY ISSUED HIS VISA TO TRAVEL TO PAKISTAN IN THE 1980'S

OR BARRY SORETORO OR EVEN MICHELLE OBAMA'S PRINCETON THESIS ON RACISIM.

THEY JUST CAN'T SEEM TO FIND THEM.

YET THE PUBLIC STILL TRUSTS THAT SAME PRESS TO GIVE THEM THE WHOLE TRUTH !

TRULY REMARKABLE !!!

Care to show some proof of that?

I am a VA state employee and we have had zero raises or bonuses for almost 4 years now. We might get a 2% bonus in Decmenber, but only if the state is running a surplus (per the last letter from VA Chief of Staff, Martin L. Kent.

Our department budget was cut by 12% last fiscal year and an aditional 14% this year plus a hiring freeze.

Dick Morris??? Can they come up with someone at least a little more serious than this geek?
What does he know about Southside Va.? More Republican Lies 24-7-365. If God wanted these people in office then why have so many fundraisers?

Presumably, that puts "an American" out of serious contention, though I can't say it's surprising it lost out to "a Republican". That seems to be a trend as of late.

Why...yes! Yes I am! Thank you for asking! So much better than right-wing pro-biz nuts, who just want the "free market" to run rampant like a rabid wolverine, where "quality" and "Safety" are considered "unreasonable regulation".

Ah yes, the right wing, where science is the devil's work, and the creation myth is fact!

Yes, I'm very glad the country is going to the left. The more the better I say!! The right wingers kids already think their parents are whack jobs anyway, so as soon as this generation dies off, that's it!!!

Ah, the party of family values is bringing the aptly named (in more ways than one) Dick Morris, former patron of prostitutes, to tour the 5th congressional district of Virginia. I'm sure the good citizen of places like Danville will appreciate a fellow like Dick, a guy so sleazy that even Roger Ailes once refused to work with him.
