McDonnell blasted for controversial research paper [OMG!! McDonnell is a conservative! SHOCKING!]
CNN ^ | August 31st, 2009 04:20 PM ET | CNN Political Producer Peter Hamby

Posted on 08/31/2009 3:13:22 PM PDT by elizabethgrace

Eager to draw attention Bob McDonnell's conservative roots, campaign advisers to Democrat Creigh Deeds on Monday called McDonnell's newly-discovered 1989 graduate thesis a "devastating" revelation that threatens to sink the Republican's campaign for the Virginia governor's mansion.

The 93-page research paper — first revealed in Sunday's Washington Post — articulated a Christian conservative worldview that criticized "cohabitators, homosexuals and fornicators" and described working women and feminists "detrimental" to the family.

He needs to take advice from Glen Beck and not allow names to harm him. The dims are well versed in this strategy. Curse him and he shrinks like a violet. Well, roar like a lion and don’t let them define you.

The 93-page research paper... articulated a Christian conservative worldview that criticized "cohabitators, homosexuals and fornicators" and described working women and feminists "detrimental" to the family.

I'm not seeing a problem here.

Next week they will prove that his kindergarten drawings show a hint of racism.

Meanwhile the media will ignore the present and past Democrat scandals

Ugh - too late. :(

And here I had been thinking, what a pleasure it would be for people to vote for a man who stood by his convictions.

He should just trot out quotes from Obama’s own Czars & advisors that only go back 8-10 years yrs. Throw in a few from the Messiah's own mouth. Then ask Deeds if he would condemn these men & women as being “unfit to govern.”

Bob McDonnell is RIGHT on! History will prove that his assertions are correct. He just listed all the things that the Islamofascists hate about the USA. Muslims also vehemently criticize "cohabitators, homosexuals and fornicators" and describe working women and feminists "detrimental" to the family. There are plenty of studies and literature in the USA that support those findings. Just ask Dr.Laura Schlessinger about that research paper.

I recall reading a book by the late and great Barbara Olsen, “Hell to Pay” and am I correct in thinking that she came the closest to uncovering Hillary’s thesis on Saul Alinsky that still remains sealed after all these years?

Thank you for that, roses of sharon. McDonnell sounds like he’s trying to take charge of the issue, so I hope he will.

Would you consider posting your National Review article as its own thread? I think it’s very helpful.

Your welcome elizabeth...I agree, he seems to be doing well.

BTW, would you mind posting this NR article as its own thread? I haven't done it in soooo long, lol, it would take me forever.

Thanks so much!

Okay, roses of sharon. I'm new here, but I figured out how to post articles before I learned how to access my mail. LOL. I had mail waiting for me from a very nice man telling me how to post graphics. I had praised his and mentioned I would have to learn how to do that and he sent me instructions. :)

I'll post your article now and I will ping you.

Good for you! I am embarrassed now, lol.

Years ago I used to posted a few, it was easier then, without all the copyright rules.

I need to study up!

Duplicates are only considered the article or column that initiates the thread. McDonnell’s response merits its own thread. Thanks so much, and nice job!

LOL. Please don’t be embarrassed. I just click “excerpt” then cross my fingers. I have no idea which publications are permitted, but your NRO went through in its entirety.

Sounds like he was right. Guess he should apologize for that.

Y’all aren’t going to believe the spin from “Talking Points Memo” are you? After all some of their favorite links are DU and KOS.
