Skip to comments.Under Fire: Gov McDonnell Uses Reagan To Defend His Transportation Tax Bill (RINO reeling)
Posted on 02/28/2013 6:29:02 AM PST by Timber Rattler
This morning on "Mornings on the Mall" on WMAL-FM in Washington DC, Gov. Bob McDonnell (R-VA) used the memory of Ronald Reagan to give himself cover for a tax increase he helped engineer.
Once considered a strong contender for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, McDonnell has found himself under increasing scrutiny from allies on the right for a tax-laden transportation bill that was approved by Virginia's legislature this weekend, despite opposition from many Republicans, including the presumptive GOP nominee to succeed McDonnell, tea-party favorite Ken Cuccinelli.

Listen to McDonnell squirm and fume...McAuliffe actually thanked him for signing the tax increases into law.
Hey look, a blog pimp site!
So Breitbart’s a “blog pimp site” now?
According to Humblegunner, it is.
He doesn’t like any information that isn’t from the MSM.
Backing Romney early told me all I needed to know about McDonnell, Christie, “Amnesty” Rubio, and many others. I’m not much for litmus tests, but this one is proving itself over and over again.
.’McAuliffe actually thanked him for signing the tax increases into law.’
Back to the George HW Bush era. Dems were clapping bigtime back then as McAuliffe is now.
You have missed the whole point by a rather wide margin.
The author of this isn’t here pimping his own material.
He has not signed up here for the sole purpose of promoting his own material.
Breitbart is a legitimate news operation.
Breitbart has staff and resources and does their own research.
Blogpimps re-write the work of others.
If you are unable to see the distinction after so much explanation I really see no way to help you.
And you will surely have no trouble showing where I indicated such.
Any old reference will be fine.
As I said, my measure is whether they are producing factual material, not whether they have paid staff that can afford to sit through mundane meetings for hours at a time, just to produce one story.
You do realize that Breitbart also used to copy and paste their stories, because it didn’t make money, right? By your measure, Breitbart wouldn’t even have gotten off the ground, if they were not allowed to post their stuff on sites like FR without your belly-aching.
As I said, I don’t care what bloggers throw onto FR, as long as they can support their assertions. If they produce interesting stuff, people will read it and comment. If they don’t people won’t and many of those bloggers will eventually move on their own accord, without your assistance.
It’s simple. Largely, if it’s not coming from bloggers, it’s going to come from the MSM.
You don’t like bloggers, so it’s going to come from the MSM.
There aren’t many sources, outside the MSM, that gets widely published.
Well, I do. So there you are.
It's the same crap, fool!
Bloggers just rip off stuff and stick it on their diseased little blog pages.
How does that make the info any better?
As I said, they give us information that you likely wouldn’t find in your local news, and collectively, they give us more information than is accessible to the majority of us here.
If a blogger shows poor judgement as to what is interesting, people won’t go to his blog. If he shows good judgement, people will.
And it helps keep FR in business, because people would be more willing to support sites they visit than sites they don’t visit.
Well, we’re just going to have to disagree on that.
Nothing wrong with disagreement.
