What's the difference between a congressman and a street walker?

Hey Dark Side, who lied? Mr. Tom said he wouldn't vote for Obamacare if it paid for abortions. 3 days later with not change in the language of the bill, he voted for it. He's a Pelosi puppet.
Tom Perriello talking about education is like giving head and shoulders to Isaac Hayes.

The only thing more unneccesary than education or Scotsville is Tom Perriello! If all three evaporated tomorrow, we would all be better off!

No Child Left Behind. That bipartisan bill proposed by Bush43 but championed by Senator Edward Kennedy with all Democrats except Russ Feingold and Earnest Hollings voting 'Aye'. Senator Inouye didn't vote. Of the 210 Democrats in the House, only ten said 'nay'.
Virginia is a 'right to work' state so a teachers' union has no teeth here in the Commonwealth. So why give money to Mr. Perriello when it will not benefit the teachers and students of Virginia in the union's eyes? Because it will benefit the unionized teachers in OTHER states.

Perriello talks about putting yet another $26 BILLION on the Chinese credit card as if it is a step the in right direction. It is so touching that he cares about protecting our children's future decision to become teachers. How will they possibly realize anything positive in their future with all of the debts racked up by his endless tax and spend agenda? Our economy is on the fast track to total economic collapse, just like Greece! WHAT IS THIS GUY SMOKING?

We must face hard times and make hard, but necessary tax and spending cuts. Perriello, like all of his progressive buddies, can't lead because they are too cowardly. He has no plan for jobs--just spend, spend, spend--and send the bill, with interest, to all of those children he so falsely claims to be concerned about. Enough already!

Still trying to be me. Are you that insecure and weak that you cannot think for yourself but have to follow what MSNBC and the left wing nut job extremists tell you to think? I'm still available if you need that lesson on how to think independently for yourself. The only class Perriello has is the one that he will need for finding a new job in November!!!

Fred please realize this imposter is not me and is just a sad left wing nut job that has to resort to their usual child like antics when their logic is proven to be wrong.

May I direct you to key paragraphs in the AP story:

"The legislation provides $10 billion to school districts to rehire laid-off teachers or to ensure that more teachers won't be let go before the new school year begins. The Education Department estimates that could save 160,000 jobs."

"The means of paying for the bill, a result of difficult negotiations in the Senate, were contentious.
Republicans objected to raising some $10 billion by raising taxes on some U.S.-based multinational companies."

Instead of your bombastic assertion about "putting yet another $26 BILLION on the Chinese credit card," please be aware that the bill is paid for with spending cuts that Republicans opposed.

I have no objection to anyone's disagreement with Perriello's policies, priorities, or votes. I don't even object to name-calling like "One-Term Tommie" or "Little Tommie Pee-Pee", since I think that sort of behavior immediately informs readers your comments will be childish and ill-informed.

I do have a serious problem with inflammatory comments that are based on either a complete lack of knowledge about the legislation you object to, or worse, comments that deliberately misinforming readers. Even Palin's ill-informed "death panel" comment twisted and exaggerated an actual clause in the legislation. Your comments about this legislation have absolutely no basis in fact.

I would challenge Democrats and Republicans, Liberals and Conservatives, to begin to call out these types of complete fabrications that continue to be posted online, whether posted from total ignorance of facts or something more sinister. If an argument cannot stand on facts, it does not deserve to stand at all.

I am in total agreement with your conclusion: Enough already.

Perriello has about as much class as you do, which is none! You are the poster on this NBC29 forum who is clueless. Nobody really cares where Periello was born, it has nothing to do with the fact that he will be voted out of office November 3rd.

What do you do when you know your voting record is disliked by the majority of your constituents? You hold your town hall meetings at times where only people who are in agreement with you can make them. His two main talking points are money for teachers, and socialized medicine. The only people who can make it at those times, teachers before the school season in those areas start back up and senior citizens. The rest of us that care are at our jobs or looking for jobs. That should tell you something about him right there.
