The Democrats are at it again, trying to steal a cheap win in this year's governor's race by looking for some small embarrassing snippet on Bob McDonnell. What pops up now? A paper written a when he was in college arguing for a pretty strict variation of family values. Now if this were written two years ago it would be different, but this is the theoretical work of a young man thinking about life and what he wants before he lived it.
But I would love to talk about traditional marriage and the proven fact that traditional marriage and traditional family values are, on par, better for society and better for children. Its not that single parents can't raise children, but a stable traditional marriage is the optimum. And its hard to argue McDonnell is anti-women when he supported his daughter going to Iraq, isn't it.
This is just another desperate attempt for Democrats to try and run a cheap campaign because they have a cheap candidate who hasn't connected with anyone but the donkey's on his farm. He's a candidate without an identity. Is he a rural conservative Democrat? Is he a progressive Charlottesville senator? The guy has such an identity problem that he completely overhauled his campaign logo midway through the campaign.
So what now? McDonnell wrote an article twenty years ago before he began his adult life? In the end, what does McDonnell want? He wants marriage and family to succeed. What has Creigh Deeds ever done? Anyeone? Bueller? Bueller?
So keep going Dems. Keep running and this with a candidate who can't walk and chew gum at the same time, who's hypocritical campaign is bashing McDonnell on social issues while stumping the commonwealth advocating killing unborn children, and who can't even tell us where he's from . . . Bath County or Charlottesville. Which is it? And while the Democrats keep this up, their governor and state senate still haven't done anything about roads, about 15% unemployment in Deeds Country, about the blown up state budget that he spent twice as much money as was spent ten years ago with the states economy and transportation getting worse.
So this is what we can expect in the next four months - attacks on Bob McDonnell for stuff like this because the Dems can't win on the merits of Creigh Deeds, the Eeyore of Virginia politics.
