Hopefully they were able to turn some voters onto what is needed for this state to get back to good traditional values and stop this entitlement mentality the democrats have fostered.

They went to Walker precinct addresses, from Greenbriar to Melbourne and beyond.
The photo Ms. Nagy used is a disgraceful under-representation of the 100+ people who turned out to greet Ken Cuccinelli and hear the Board of Supervisor candidates speak, before leaving to go door-to-door.
To set the record straight, the concept is not a new one for local Republicans, at all. What is novel is that a state-wide candidate came here to canvass.
He came to traditionally liberal Charlottesville, because the national polls clearly indicate "buyers remorse", on the part of Independents and moderate Democrats; something that has been evident as the GOP volunteers and candidates visit the community.
Ken recently called for a special session in Richmond, to close a loophole in a law that greatly affected successful criminal prosecutions in the state. His opponent opposed it, calling the move partisan. Even Gov. Kaine disagreed and the problem has been dealt with effectively. That is Ken Cuccinelli in a nutshell: consistent, effective, decisive leadership.

Thank you for posting that link, Albert. I had no idea that McDonnell held these beliefs. It is important that everyone understand the level of his disregard for women.

That was in 1989 20 years ago!!!! I thought the transformers were real then too should that be held against me now?! You learn as you get older. 20 years has taught him something and I hope it has taught you also. But since you didn't provide all the facts in your post I doubt it has.

Albert, I'm sure you are proud of everything you have ever said or done in YOUR past. I will measure ANYTHING that Bob McDonnell has ever said against what Creigh Deeds says now--Bob emerges the winner, since Creigh never has ANYTHING to say. Interesting that, being 15+ points behind in the polls, the Deeds supporters are resorting to digging up dirt from over 20 years ago. What about TODAY'S ISSUES? It's a shameful and poor way to sell your Nobody Candidate for Governor--Creigh Deeds.

And just how are YOU measuring this fabricated "disreguard for women" you claim he has? From a quote taken over 20 years ago? Are you the same person you were 20 years ago? I hope not! Like a fine wine, Bob McDonnell only gets BETTER with age!

"Albert", Ted Kennedy killed a girl with his drunken, self serving behavior and he was practically canonized this past weekend.
Attorney General McDonnell's comments are grossly out of context and only show his thinking at the time...and out of context. I don't believe a girl drowned, as a result, "Barbara"!
FYI, "Albert", "Barbara"...the article was about Ken Cuccinelli.
Angry citizen, they are people and they come out every weekend. They walk and spend time with people. They'll get to you. Call Republican HQ at Albemarle Square if you want a personal visit, or if you have questions. Be nice.
thats crazy

The paper in question was written while he was a student at regent university, so he had to prove he was a moron as a requirement for graduation. Candidates like McDonnell are why the Republican party is degenerating into irrelevance.

Silly it should not be called Pat Robertson's 700 Club Law School...this is a sham school-like Liberty, which BTW does not have that. You see a lot of these "death panel" Palinsters with that blank look reciting the talking points or mindlessly screaming at these town hall meetings. The shame is the poor under-informed people who buy into the fear and the lack of thought process from the right wing nuts. Repugs are obstructionists and are incapable of governing, but they are skilled at manipulating the weak minded using fear.
