    Before anyone says it, YES, I got this from MSNBC. However, I found it rather intriguing. Why is it that the GOP picked Bob McDonnell, a guy with 11 days of Governor experience to deliver the rebuttal to the President's SOTU address? And then, within his rebuttal, the only other Republican he mentioned was Scott Brown, who so far has zero days of experience in the senate? Does anyone else find this odd? Are the Republicans trying to put a new face on their party?

    So now experience matters after electing the inexperienced Obama? And this is only delivering a speech, not running the country

    I asked a legitimate question, dumbass. It's sad that you are too partisan to actually look at it objectively and possibly give an opinion. Now, go fuck yourself.

    I think its because he's very well spoken and an up and commer in the GOP. I think he's someone that could very well move on up the ladder.

    That would be my guess Yank.

    I agree with your assessment, Claudette, and I voted for McDonnell, because unlike his opponent, he actually had IDEAS for Virginia. However, knowing McDonnell, he does NOT speak well from a teleprompter (as witnessed by his blazing speed thourgh the speech), plus, don't you think that is just a LITTLE pressure to put on a guy after JUST being sworn into the Governor's office? And why didn't he call out a single veteran member of the GOP? His only remarks about his fellow members were about a guy who has yet to serve in the senate a single minute?

    It is a speech.... on television... I don't care if they had Jack Nicholson or Urkel deliver it

    Now as to experience mattering in the proper areas, like being elected to the highest office in the land, yes I do care about that... hence why I did not vote for the idiot megalomaniac we have as President right now

    I'm guessing that trying to put a fresh face on the GOP is indeed what they're doing.

    So, holding true to your apparent values, is it safe to assume you did not vote for Palin, either?
