Gee, he's not even in office an hour and he's already appointing TWO commissions. Are we sure he's a Republican? Looks to me more like he's a Democrat in Republican clothing.

Of course, he's a politician, and regardless of their party affiliation, they're all the same. Liars, cheats and fornicators.

Don't be too sure of that XD357Sig. You're right to bear arms is guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, and the old document has taken quite a beating lately.
I ask that you take a few moments to read the following article written more than six years ago. It is an outline for a universal national health care system.
http://www.radicalmiddle.com/x_health_care.ht...
It is strikingly very similar to the plans currently before Congress. But I want you to pay particular attention to the section on Public Health near the end of the article. The U.S. Public Health Service said that if we make "the appropriate investments" in six areas, we would reduce health care costs by 11% within five years. Look at the last of the six areas. How do you "make an investment" to reduce gunshot wounds? There is only one way. Take away our guns. This will be one of the excuses the government will try to use to circumvent the Constitution, demolish the 2nd Amendment and take our guns...for the good of the public health. Just watch.
And again remember, this was written over six years ago.

Every one likes to hang on to the 2nd Amendment as their excuse to tote guns and protect their castles. Few it seems fail to recall what the original intent of 2nd Amen. was put there for. Anyone dare a guess? That doesn't include Constitutionalis t.

I know exactly what you are saying and I won't let the cat out of the bag, but there is a much more subtle and lesser discussed interpretation that was the absolute genius of the Framers. The implied check and balance.

We already have two democratic senators that support gun rights one carries!!!!!!!!! The subject is a new republican Gov.. I have heard that speach about 1,000 times by republicans and somehow it never seems to be true. How is Gov. Bob going to make VA. the NO.1 place to do business when that has already been done by democratic Govs. we are the no.1 place now and Texas is no.2. And for the 50th time I ask how is he going to do all these things without raising taxes???????? I will bet we are not no.1 after the next 4 years.

If you are looking at the same statistics I am from CNBC, then you answered your own question.
The only catagories Virginia does not fall in the top 25 states is the cost of doing business and cost of living.
"Cost of doing business" is defined as the tax burden (individual income and property taxes, business taxes, gas tax), utility costs, wages, workers' comp insurance, and rental costs for office and industrial space.
"Cost of living" is housing, food and energy.
So it stands to reason if Governor McDonnell raises taxes, we will fall lower in that catagory and slip out of the top spot of the best states for business.

The number one place to do bus. came from Forbes mag., which is right leaning. A chance is one thing telling the truth is another. Again you can't do all the things he says he is going to do when the funds are not there.

He'll balance the budget better then the past governors have done. He needs to cut out wasteful spending so money can go back to our schools.

You quoted a reliable source! Excellent!
No doubt that much of Virginia's high tax burdens, high rents and cost of living can be attributed to Northern Virginia.

$250,000 taxpayer dollars and a hangover later, Virginia has Bozo Bob. I drove all the way down I64 this morning just to use the rest area at the 169 mile marker that Bozo was going to reopen. Still closed! I then drove to Virginia Beach expecting to see off shore drilling and there was none. I then drove back to Richmond, stopped at IHOP and asked, where can I find the biggest liar in the state? Everyone sent me to Bozo's new house. Talk time is over, time to go to work.

The cost of Governor Kaine's inauguration was $325,000.
Please note that while I don't agree with many of Mr.Kaine's policies, I still afford him the respect deserved of any elected official.

So much for the smaller goverment and the truth, Gov. Bob hasn't been in office a day and has withdrawn Sledd from his cabinet and gave him a post which he created. A post that eledted people have no control over. Get ready to open your wallets next. Like I have said before republicans do a 180 of what they say.

Do you really want to start down the "czar road"?
Robert Sledd will serve as an unpaid advisor now. Do you have a problem with someone willing to try to help solve our state's problems an not accept a paycheck? It sounds fiscally responsible to me.
