    Go ahead. Try and keep Obama away from the campaign trail. That would be like trying to take football away from Brett Favre. He's found something he can do well.

    Oh good! Obama go and campaign for all your fellow socialsts. It will be helpful in two ways. 1. Youll be away from washington and less likely to ruin this country anymore than you already have. 2. You are the reason the republicans are going to take back the majority in both houses. So go campaign!

    Why? Deeds when asked if he followed Obama economics hesitated and said he doesn't follow Obama, he follows Deed econcomics.
    I am voting Republican because the last Governor we had, Tim Kaine, Left Va. in debt. The only Democrat Governor that we had that I truly liked and voted for was Mark Warner! Wish he was President! He would have been great!

    Go McDonnell!

    So my boy is gonna head to the Commonwealth, huh? I guess that's O.K, is alright.

    Does seem like Deeds could use all the help necessary, huh? He got Bill and my boy trying to help him. Don't know how much of an impact it can help him but the fact that he won Virginia in the elections can make some impact but not a lot. Deeds has to worry about winning the suburbs in Virginia, is alright. Whether he can win or not is open for debate but whether he can do better than my boy, can be open for assesment.

    Joe Wilson is now the GOP's new leader that they have longed looked to rebrand themselves. Joe Wilson and Sarah Palin will run in 2012 on the GOP ticket and that's what I call "rebranding".

    Deeds will lose, Obama can't change that. It is a rejection on the direction Obama is taking this country. Spending trillions of dollars with very little return on the money. Massive deficits destroying the value of the dollar and yet Obama wants to spend even more while doing nothing to bring down the deficits. It can't last, the rest of the world is turnig from the dollar, thats a fact. And Obama seems to want it that way. Obama seems to care nothing about this issue and is more interested in attacking those who are opposed to his dangerous policies then he is interested in fixing the deficits or protecting the value of our money. When the dollar is worthless, it won't matter how many you have, we will all be poor.
