It is a family matter. It does not reflect in any manner on Joe Biden’s ability to act as Vice President. There but for the grace of God go I, or my family.
A “friend” offered me a line to snort the summer after I graduated from high school. Never mind my NAZI enemies, the statute of limitations has long since expired. Either he was too cheap to give me enough to get me high, or it was not very potent, or whatever, but it had no effect on me. Thank God. My one and only foray into the world of cocaine was a total waste of time. I don’t look on those people who use it as criminals. I look at them as risk takers. Apparently it is a roll of the dice whether one becomes an addict or not. Why take that chance? But Biden’s daughter is an adult, and is responsible for her own decisions. This is not political news, this is sad, personal, family business. I hope she learns from her mistakes and that her family’s love will encourage her to give up the drug. Before it is too late.
California Republicans who opposed any new taxes for any reason. That is, assuming he read the article he cited in his article at “Too Conservative.” He cited an article written by his little heroin Kathleen Parker as so-called evidence that Republicans are too extreme. The article says that a big Republican donor in California switched party affiliations “in a word”* because of the California Republicans refusal to raise taxes. What do Republicans who oppose raising taxes get called by “Loudoun Insider”? Why, intransigent “Republican wingnuts” and “Puritans” and “fringe hardliners,” that’s what. Continue reading
Two of the most partisan Virginia liberal Democrats call out Bob McDonnell for not being a “moderate”? PuhLEEEAZE. As if Barack Obama, Timmy Kaine, and Mark Warner are “moderates”? If those three stooges can hoodwink the electorate into believing they are “moderates” then Bob McDonnell should have no problem doing it himself. If those three stooges can lie about being moderates and get away with it, I see no grounds for Democrats to complain if McDonnell does the same thing. That would be taking a page straight out of the Democrat playbook: act and speak as if a “moderate” during the campaign, then act and speak as an extreme partisan once elected.
From the Times-Dispatch: “Bob McDonnell’s got a tough sell if he aims to convince Virginians that he’s different from the obstructionist Bob McDonnell that I’ve known for 15 years,” said state Democratic Party Chairman C. Richard Cranwell of Vinton, who served with McDonnell in the House of Delegates.”
“I know Bob McDonnell; Bob McDonnell is no moderate,” said state Sen. A. Donald McEachin, D-Henrico.”
I got news for Dickie and Donnie–you two are no “moderates” either. That said, frankly it is distasteful to me that McDonnell is playing that game, if he is. I would rather he be true to who he is. I say, stand up for your beliefs, convince people you are right and the opposition is wrong. Then, if you lose, at least you went down swinging. Ask John McCain how far acting like a spineless “moderate” got him in Virginia during the last election.
