  • So, who’s running this party anyway?

    Bearing Drift ^ | JR Hoeft
    Yesterday’s “Burgers with Bill,” held in the normally sleepy days following the end of primaries, the end of school, and pre-Independence day, has gotten folks to thinking. Why? Because the GOP is in complete transition. And it’s time to just openly accept it.(SNIP) So, when many of the former leaders gathered last night for “Burgers with Bill,” which used to be a much sought after fundraising ticket, but is now an event that is paid for by Bolling’s PAC, it seemed a bit like a nod to the past and a reflection on the current state of the party. McDonnell...

    Last night I posted what I thought was a very balanced comment on the 7th district congressional election. I expressed my personal disappointment that Eric Cantor lost, congratulated David Brat on his victory, and expressed concern over the deep divisions that currently exist in our party. I encourage you to read the comments that were made in response. The negativity and vitriol of these comments (dare I say the hate in some of them) reflects what is wrong in our party right now. We have to learn to disagree without being disagreeable, and we have to learn to respect the...

    by Brian Hayes | Top Right NewsFurious over his support for amnesty for illegal aliens, conservative activists gave Rep. Eric Cantor a rough "welcome" in his own district -- sending a message that the House GOP leadership would be wise to heed before they hand Barack Obama a victory on "immigration reform". Cantor (R-Va.), the House Majority Leader was "heckled and booed" by conservatives and Tea Party activists at the 7th Congressional District Convention held in Richmond Saturday.  — and that wasn’t even the worst of it.

    The tragic Fort Hood shooting this week reignited the debate over shootings in gun-free zones and whether gun-free zones are generally more prone to this kind of horrible violence. On Cashin’ In Saturday morning, Eric Bolling and Juan Williams tussled over mental health and the gun culture, with Williams saying, “I think we need America to be a gun-free zone.”Jonathan Hoenig and Wayne Rogers agreed the problem is more about “seriously deranged people” as opposed to guns. Williams said, “I’m amused that you guys are so quick to run away from the easy availability of guns as having some responsibility...

    A prominent liberal columnist’s admission that the “death panels” Sarah Palin warned about really are and always have been a part of Obamacare caused a blowup Tuesday on Fox’s “The Five,” when host Eric Bolling said “liberal royalty” owes Palin an apology. Bolling was referring to a statement by Time magazine columnist and passionate Obama fan Mark Halperin, who told Newsmax TV on Monday that health-care rationing was an inseparable part of Obamacare’s takeover of the U.S. health system. Halperin himself didn’t use the term “death panels,” but the point was clear enough from the clip. It wasn’t clear enough...

Bolling and Rivera battled over Obama’s personal culpability in the attacks until Bolling hung up after being accused by Rivera of alleging that the president was “a damn murderer.” Rivera opened the interview by criticizing Bolling’s focus on Obama’s actions on the night of the attack. He said that Bolling is buying into a “false narrative”...

    Bill Bolling swears he hasn't decided whether he'll run for Governor of Virginia, but in a mostly one-sided conversation with WMAL's Mornings On The Mall Thursday, the incumbent Lt. Governor sounded an awful lot like a candidate aiming for middle-of-the-road votes. "There are a lot of what I'll call more 'mainstream' Republicans like me that are just not real happy with the current leadership and direction of our party," said Bolling. "I think in this particular race in Virginia this year, there's a lot of uneasiness out there with the candidates of both of the major political parties, so that...

    Until three months ago, when he dropped out of the race to become the Republican nominee for governor, Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling had to keep mum about his unhappiness with the GOP’s shift to the right. He couldn’t say, as he did in an interview here Tuesday, that he thought the Republicans had become so extreme that they were alienating voters and blocking the commonwealth’s progress. (snip) To say all that previously would have meant giving up any chance of beating Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, a tea party favorite, for the nomination. As it happened, Cuccinelli and his allies...

    From staff and wire reports Senate Democrats effectively delayed a Republican voter identification bill for another year after Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling, a Republican, sided with them on Monday to break a party-line 20-20 tie. Bolling voted for a Democratic amendment that delayed the voter ID changes to July 2014. It was the first tie-breaking vote of the 2013 session since he withdrew his GOP gubernatorial bid last fall, pledging a new independence from his party. Advertisement The bill, sponsored by Sen. Richard H. Black, R-Loudoun, would have eliminated documents such as residential utility bills, current paycheck stubs or even...

    Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling’s decision Wednesday to drop his bid for the GOP gubernatorial nomination paves the way for a battle royale between Republican state Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II and former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe — a campaign that could be radically altered if Mr. Bolling follows through on hints he might pursue an independent run. Such a move would turn on its head a race that’s already ensured a national audience thanks to Virginia’s tradition of holding gubernatorial elections in odd years and would also test the loyalties of many within the party hungry...

That he believed and expected that the Insider-Powers-That-Be in the Republican Party could give him his turn to run for Governor irrespective of whom the Voters of Virginia would want or how they wish to choose indicates he exercised a very self-centered and self-serving disregard for We the People.

    Richmond (VA) Times-Dispatch | May 30, 2012 | Richmond Times-Dispatch Staff
    In October 2011, the Republican Party of Virginia's State Central Committee voted to nominate its 2013 statewide ticket in a primary. Tuesday's Times-Dispatch reported that the committee might change the rules and opt to nominate candidates in a convention instead. The appropriate response runs to three words: Don't do it. The Times-Dispatch long has considered primaries the preferred vehicles for nominations — for both parties. Although primaries can compel campaigns to spend more money, they tend to leave less blood on the floor. Caucuses and conventions often turn personal; they open wounds. They also attract activists, ideologues, partisans and crackpots...

Bill Bolling in the 2013 Republican primary for governor, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. In Virginia's U.S. Senate race, two former governors, Democrat Tim Kaine and Republican George Allen, are locked in a year-long, too-close-to-call race with 44 percent for Kaine and 43 percent for Allen.

    On the measure's first day in the Senate after it cleared the House on Tuesday, abortion opponents rallied at the state Capitol to support House Bill 1, which would define life as beginning at conception. Nearly 100 people gathered Wednesday at Capitol Square's Bell Tower to advocate for the measure, wearing yellow scarves and carrying yellow balloons, along with "Support HB1" posters that depicted a fetus. The bill would impart the rights of "personhood" to a human embryo at the moment of conception, creating a civil cause of action for the wrongful death of an unborn child killed by the...

Certainly that was not the prevailing opinion in Democratic circles in 2008, when giddiness over Barack Obama's election reached manic proportions. Virginia, which voted Democratic for president for the first time since 1964, was singled out as an indication of the shape of things to come.

    With 2/3 of the ballots counted in Virginia, McDonnell (R) is pounding Deeds (D) 61%-39%. The last Rasmussen poll had McDonnell ahead 54%-41%.
