Part of me thinks this is a political hissy-fit. My guy lost so things are going to get bad.

While the planning is prudent, Virginia will be hit hard by any federal spending cut, he might better spend his time encouraging the partisans on both sides that this game of fiscal chicken is stupid.

Never raise taxes for revenue, just take away desperately needed services for it. Great political move. Why not just give up the darn highway rest stops and let the tourist stop at private businesses? This guy makes no sense.

Governor is deploying the "you will feel the pain if Obama wins" threat / strategy.
His threats didn't help. Obama won by being the first prez to run twice and get over 50% of the vote since FDR.
Remember this ?
“If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, as our current President plans, I will have no choice but to reduce the size of this company,” wrote David Siegel, CEO of Florida-based Westgate Resorts, according to CNN.“Rather than grow this company I will be forced to cut back. This means fewer jobs, less benefits and certainly less opportunity for everyone.”

I grew up in Boston, MA. I lived with democrats/progressives/liberal s for 45 years. They do nothing but take...take..take..Never do they cut spending or their salaries...People complained about M Romney being rich. They're more rich democrats than republicans in the house & senate. Nancy Pelosi is worth 37 Million..(There are many more I could name..but you get the point) John Kerry from MA is worth $195 Million...he & other rich dems can check a box off when they do tax returns to pay more....they never check the box...I cannot stand socialism/communism/statism/et c..people need to pay attention to what the hell is going on instead of worrying about the next Idol contestant or some other BS reality show...when the sh*t hits the fan you all can go to hell...I help my family/friends/neighbors...the government cannot help anyone without first taking from someone else first..then they decide who is going to receive it...SOCIALISM IS FOR THE PEOPLE NOT THE SOCIALISTS...

And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for youask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.
Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own.

Do you think this Democrat is rolling over in his grave right now?
