    Bob McDonnell in Virginia has made a nice campaign recently out of just showing Creigh Deeds in his own retarded words. Obviously I can't vote for Bob McDonnell because I think he is nuts. But I hardly feel I can vote for idiot Deeds either, if you are too dumb to un a campaign, how can you hope to run a state?

    AND JUST WHAT THE HELL DOES HE BELIEVE IN.

    Once again I'd like to thank Virginia liberals for putting Deeds in the race by not voting for Terry McAullife, the man who could have won. Jesus, this could be the two worst candidate for governor I've ever seen. I only hope McDonnell doesn't destroy the commonwealth before his term expires.

    I just don't see a single area of this country controlled by Socialist Democrats that hasn't become a miserable Third World Nightmare at this point. What sane & rational human being would rush out there to vote for more Socialist Democrats? Oh well it is America i guess and you do have the right to be stupid and vote for more Third World Misery. So good luck Virginia and New Jersey because you're definitely gonna need it.

    Oh yeah, Creigh Deeds is a big time socialist. Are you for real?

    I'm from New Jersey and I'm with you.

    After four years, I seriously hate John Corzine. I was looking forward to voting for Chris Christie based on his convictions as a Federal Prosecutor. However, once the spotlight was put on Christie, he seems less than inspiring.

    I watched the Governors debate over the weekend and the one who actually excelled was Chris Daggett. Based on the nasty campaigns of Corzine and Christie and the thoughtful responses of Daggett, I may go with the Independent

    Got news for you. Your Commonwealth ain't in such great shape now. I don't see how McDonnell can make it any worse. In fact i think your Commonwealth can only get better at this point. You're at the bottom of the barrel right now. Up is the only direction for your Commonwealth at this point. Your premise is based on a fantasy that your current Governor has done such a wonderful job. The next Governor of Virginia will have his hands full for sure. There will be no quick fixes for your Commonwealth. It is what it is.

    Virginia's Unemployment Rate was an astounding 2% under the last Republican Governor. Their debt wasn't nearly as bad either under their last Republican Governor.

    What I find Amazing is New Jersey - Corzine's approval ratings are in the tank, but the latest RCP has him ahead slightly in the race. How can that be? Is the GOP nominee THAT bad?

    No but New Jersey IS THAT bad. They just love their incompetent & corrupt Socialist Democrats up there in Jersey. Nothing would surprise me when it comes to Jersey. A Third World H*ll-Hole for sure at this point. So yea why not more corrupt Socialist Democrats? Yikes!

    At one point, two years before his term finished. It had nearly doubled by the end. Of course, you are correct, there was no debt either. Instead, there was a deficit and tricky accounting to try and pass the debt on to his successor. He did nearly completely eliminate the "rainy day" fund of Virginia and hurt the bond rating.

    After he left, we got Warner, probably the greatest governor of modern times for the state. Followed by Kaine, a mediocre attempt at continuing Warner's legacy.

    It should be noted that Pew's non-partisan state grades consistantly has Virginia near the top and that has not changed: Grading the States - The Pew Center on the States

    Furthermore, you would note that there does not really seem to be any partisan rhyme or reason to which states are good and bad in the ratings. But keep peddling whatever crap you want.
