I hope he runs I don't care for either of the other two and am tired of being told if I vote for someone it will cause another to win so I will vote for him.

I'm with you. Cuccinelli played politics with Obamacare by taking it to court in an effort to opt out. Virginia will eventually jump on board with it because it is the prudent thing to do. Many Republican states that filed suit and won have decided it isn't such a bad plan after all. Before you Beck believing, bobble headed Republicans say I'm wrong I suggest you Google it. Your whining wimp of a Republican Governor is cutting hours to part time employees and blaming it on who else...Obama. Bobble headed Republicans can't make a decision on their own. Instead they bash decisions made by others.

How about it there bobble head...I asked the question of all you right wing, Beck loving Republican bobble heads the other day on whether the cuts due to go into effect Friday should happen or not. I say lets do it. Lets cut the hell out of it. That's what you bobble heads say you want. Even though thousands will be terminated in Virginia alone the time to cut everything is now. Post under one name and answer the question. Do you and the rest of you bobble heads want the cuts to take place? Yes or no? No more of this bobbing your heads up and down, side to side and blaming the Democrats. Make a choice and live with it. I made my choice. Cut defense spending, medicare, social security, school budgets, everything. That's what the bobble heads in the Republican party say they want so do it and live with it. Oh yea...I also say raise taxes. Your no tax increase bobble headed Governor in Richmond is surely doing it so why not Obama? That's right, it's Obama's & Kaine's fault Bozo Bobble head had to do it.

It's not about the people in Virginia, or anything like that.In the end it is all about the money according to Bill.

Isn't this what Republicans always do? Fight amongst themselves--then the inferior Democrat comes in for the kill. Your time is up, Mr. Bolling--now move along and do what's in the best interests of Virginia. This isn't about you.

It's a sad commentary on our electoral system that it has to be "all about the money" to even run an effective campaign.

We need to stack the supreme court with justices not loyal to corporate amerika, and prohibit campaigns run on anything other than public financing.

Carter won his presidency without taking any corporate or private donations.

There is nothing "prudent" about Obamacare. It will destroy quality healthcare, and bankrupt America.

All he's going to do is pull votes away from Cooch and we'll end up with another lib in Richmond -- there go the Christmas bonuses and future raises!!! After what Kaine did, I don't know HOW any State employee can put another lib in Richmond!! McDonnell has done VERY WELL for us!!

I hope Bolling does run, and he would have my vote. I will not vote for Cuccinelli -- his reactionary social politics are an anathema to the political culture started by Washington, Jefferson, Madison and Monroe.

I am not a fan of McAuliffe at all, but would vote for him if it was a 2-man race.

Anybody but Cooch.

You are SO wrong. What will destroy quality healthcare and bankrupt not only America, but Americans is what hospitals charge for services. Think about this...in any other situation, you have a choice whether or not to buy a product. If it costs too much, shop around and go down the street if you want to. With hospital care...you don't know what the cost will be BEFORE you receive the service, and you have no choice, you have to pay for it after you receive it. Hospital CEO's make $2-6 million a year. There's where all your hard earned money is going. Please read the Time Magazine current issue, "Bitter Pill". You will change your mind.

The #1 cause of bankruptcy is due to medical reasons, of those over 3/4s of them had private insurance. This is the issue that you're speaking of...

I say cut...cut...cut...That's right,get rid of this wasteful government. Get rid of the dept of education. It has destroyed this once great academia. There are some aspects of the military that can be cut without effecting our security. No more tax increases. Get the spending under control & stop wasting out tax dollars. If you want to pay more, feel free too but, don't ask me too. Throw every single illegal alien out of this country & those who are on welfare can go to work taking their place. That's right, let them work & if need be we can supplement their pay with incentives. Stop stealing from hard working Americans & dishing it out to losers. The democrats catered to fear to get people to vote there way without any chance of getting what they need to rise up. "Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all."

Throw out the illegals? I thought you were an anti-statist? You should welcome the illegals, they undermine the statists' price floor on labor, and labor regulations. Why hire one legal US American when you can hire three, not have to pay insurance, taxes, or legal wages on them? You can work them 20 hours, and not give them bathroom breaks, better yet, you can farm them out as prostitutes, and if they disobey? put them in a ditch, cover them up, nobody cares.
