Amid the generally positive reviews for Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnells speech last night, there should be an effort to see if his recent actions match his words. After saying that government policy should spur economic growth and should not ... pile on more taxation, regulation and litigation, he took a shot at President Obamas stimulus plan:

This was our chance. He put me to sleep.
The lower the level of government, the better the decisions. So decisions made at State level are preferred to those made at Federal level.
I thought it was the best response to a State of the Union speech I’ve ever seen.
He’s not a terrific speaker but his content was spot on and having the people gathered around made it look good too. Applause really helps.
What moron wrote this article? Bob McDonnell is supporting tax credits for small businesses doimg business in the state and those comiong to the stse to open new businesses. He’s offering tax credits to veterans starting new businesses. What exactly do you disagree with about giving job creators a tax break?
You are correct but you seriously need to put spell check to work.
He was typing with passion. I voted for McDonnell for these same reasons.
Hes not a terrific speaker
Would you rather have a terrific speaker with no substance or heart or a marginal speaker who has got the right stuff?
I’d rather have Bob over Obama if that’s what you’re asking.
LOL...I was! (That and fat fingers.)
“I thought it was the best response to a State of the Union speech Ive ever seen.”
I agree with you, granted, I haven’t watch too many though.....
McDonnell, in my opinion, actually has an opportunity to set himself up for a national stage. To do so, he has to:
#1 Don’t raise taxes, no matter how much whining he hears (he promised not to) Even better if he lowers them
#2 Privatize the ABC stores (like he promised to) - this will set the stage for reducing government
#3 Privatize something else (anything....take your pick) - this will show it can be done again (and again, and again)
#4 Sell a state asset
This is the future of government, and is the only way the US gets out of our fiscal hole - privatizing government, selling assets
If he does this, and does it even just somewhat successfully he’s got a future.....
‘course I could be wrong....
He shoud privatize the rest stops.
