Virginia's economic recovery key to 2012 race

New York (CNNMoney) - They might not be the hottest commodity on Super Tuesday, but Virginia voters are set to become one of the most sought-after prizes of the upcoming general election.

In 2008, Obama carried the state in one of the cycle's biggest surprises. Before that, Virginia had gone to the Republicans in every presidential contest since 1964.

    The GOBP has soiled its brand in virtually every state of the nation. TIme will tell how badly it's damaged in VA.

    Republicans have fallen in love with calling people RINOs, Republicans In Name Only, and chase them away. Most people say that they don't recognize today's Republican Party. That is because the real RINOs are the people who are currently dominating the party, steering its' ideology off a cliff.

    The keys to the Republican Party not getting thoroughly drubbed in November is to smoke out their RINOs. They are driving the party off of a cliff with their extreme ideology, and I fear they will take the whole country with them.

    Well things have changed here in the Commonwealth. We may have a republican governor and general assembly, but we'll be voting for the President again in 2012.

    The economy is going to flourish nationally regardless its snail speed. What is needed is patience. The big mistake each individual should avoid is to hand it over to those who dismantled it at the first place.
