Getting Virginia Tech into the ACC was a massive deal for Mark Warner, the next Senator in Virginia.

But the success of the surge strategy in Iraq has muted the war as an election issue.
=========================
The surge was a tactic: to kick the ball down the field until Bush left office.

The occupation of Iraq remains a disaster we can't afford.

Nice to see Bubby (aka Mudcat) getting some results from his tireless self-promotion. Maybe Obama will finally throw some coin his way.

Obviously, with all the recent news and the coming landslide, this is THE most pressing issue. While us Douche Nozzles are irrigating Ellen Degenitles, we've heard that putin and his jetpack and laser eyes are about to invade!

Tech are a bunch of losers and thugs, anyone who supports that team should be ashamed of themselves.

Here's an interesting video on how we got to this point in the financial crisis...it's pretty good!

firelight,
That sums it up pretty well. The Dems sink the ship and blame everyone else.. how unusual..

Gosh, if only Obama had picked Tim Kaine as his VP! He would be doing so well in hillbilly country!

t

Virginia State Police Superintendent W. Steven Flaherty, a political appointee of Governor Tim Kaine, ordered State Police chaplains to cease praying “in Christ’s name.”

We ALL need to exert intense public pressure to reverse this hateful, bigoted policy.

Christians should not be bashed by public officials.

I can understand the hype surrounding Obama and his rockstar image, but he stands zero chance of winning virginia.
People forget that Democrats like Webb, Kaine and Warner won their elections because they were only running in VA. This allowed them to hedge their positions and run as moderates. An extreme leftist like Obama stands no chance of winning here and comparing him to Webb is an apples to oranges comparison.
Webb came out hard in favor of gun-owners rights and campaigned on rural issues, as did Warner and Kaine. Alot of self-described conservatives supported Webb -- zero support Obama. Obama doesn't have the ability to take those kinds of positions because he has to win in the socialist states too. Mark it down... 5 point for McCain in VA.

P.S. - If you want to gauge the effect of his "Appalachian Problem" just look at how he fared in WV during the primary.

Speaking of Jim Webb, what do you think about him sending out a fundraising email for Gerry Connolly, NLS?

"In Virginia's 11th Congressional District, Democrat Gerry Connolly is in a close race in a district for a seat currently held by a Republican. Gerry Connolly is Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. Gerry is a dedicated community leader, and his common-sense approach to community issues has earned him countless awards for his work on the environment, improving public safety, and transportation.

This November, Gerry faces a tough battle against a well-funded and wealthy businessman. Help make sure Gerry has the resources to stay competitive in this critical House race."

right on the marxist/racist obama will never win virginia ever mccain +8.

Barack Obama by a minimum of 3 points. Mark it down.

Comparing Allen to McCain is a similar apples to oranges comparison. Allen was the favorite son of the state GOP, while McCain narrowly won the GOP primary while losing the conservative base in the 5th, 6th, and 9th to Huckabee.

Plus, let's not forget in 2006
1. Allen outspent Webb 2:1
2. Webb has almost no organization outside of NOVA.
3. On election day it rained everywhere in the state except NOVA - and we all know that depresses DEM turnout.

Despite all that, Webb won. 2008 is a new race with each candidate holding different strengths and weaknesses - not least of which is a reverse coattail effect that may come from Warner hovering around 60% of the vote.

Hey, just show Appalachia this youtube...that will drive the clingy bitters to the polls.

My chest actually hurt with my BP rising when I saw this. Absolutely sick, and reminiscent of youth propaganda in the last century.

These dumb ass parents think they are helping a cause, but actually hurting a candidacy.

Sick. Sick. Sick.

In honor of the singing children for Obama propaganda video, let us take a moment to pay homage to the Messiah with this Obama version of the Soviet National Anthem and suggest it as their next song.

United forever in friendship and labour,
Our mighty Messiah will ever endure.
The Great Messiah will live through the ages.
The dream of a people their fortress secure.

Long live our Messiah's Fatherland,
Built by the people's mighty hand.
Long live our people, united and free.
Strong in our friendship tried by fire.
Long may Obama's fake presidential seal inspire,
Shining in glory for all men to see.

Through days dark and stormy where Great Lenin lead us
Our eyes saw the bright sun of freedom above
And Stalin our leader with faith in the people,
Inspired us to build up the land that we love.

Long live our Messiah's Fatherland,
Built by the people's mighty hand.
Long live our people, united and free.
Strong in our friendship tried by fire.
Long may our Obama's fake presidential seal inspire,
Shining in glory for all men to see.

We fought for the future, destroyed the invaders,
And brought to our homeland the laurels of fame.
Our glory will live in the memory of nations
And all generations will honour her name.

Long live our Messiah's Fatherland,
Built by the people's mighty hand.
Long live our people, united and free.
Strong in our friendship tried by fire.
Long may Obama's fake presidential seal inspire,
Shining in glory for all men to see.

===========================
Sure, firelight. If by good, you mean 100% false.

Try the facts:

This housing debacle had nothing to do with the CRA, and everything to do with deregulating Wall Street.
