    Zero Hedge, ^ | November 17th, 2011 | Tyler Durden
    Up until now, fraudclosure and robosigning were both merely civil offenses, and as such the banks were actively doing all they could to bury any and all pending litigation under a large settlement umbrella, wash their hands of the whole affair and move on, with nobody in danger of actually walking the plank and certainly not in danger of going to jail. That has all changed as of now, following a Nevada Grand Jury handing down criminal indictments against two title officers employed by Lender Processing Services Inc. for allegedly directing and supervising a robo-signing scheme, in which documents filed...

    Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch brought up a claim he said "some people" have made, that President Barack Obama is waiting until after this year's gubernatorial election in New Jersey and Virginia before making a decision on sending more troops to Afghanistan. “Some people have even been, I think, hyper-critical in suggesting that he’s waiting until after the election because they have some tough governorships up for election” Hatch said In an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union with John King, “I hope that’s not the case.” Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown said he knows Hatch didn’t say he...

    The Republican Party has no national leaders. Its stand ing with voters is at an all- time low. It battens itself on an ideological purity that turns off the center and can't appeal to an increasingly suburban and diverse electorate. If it is not fated to go the way of the Federalists or the Whigs, it is certainly a spent force. This is the rote obituary for the GOP that the left can't resist. It is all the more alluring for its elements of truth: A party that holds neither the presidency, the House nor the Senate won't be stacked...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | 10/28/09 | Scott Rasmussen
    Republican Robert F. McDonnell has now opened a 13-point lead over Democrat R. Creigh Deeds with less than a week to go in the race for governor of Virginia. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the state - taken last night just after President Obama made a campaign appearance for Deeds in the state - shows McDonnell ahead 54% to 41%. Only four percent (4%) remain undecided. Earlier this month, McDonnell led by seven, and last month he was up by nine. [snip] Among those likely to vote, 49% approve of the way Obama has handled his job as...

    Amid tumbling poll numbers and signs of major money problems, Democratic strategists have begun privately grousing that state Sen. Creigh Deeds could prove a significant drag on critical downballot races in Virginia next Tuesday. One senior Democratic strategist who has closely followed the contest in Virginia said that the "chances are somewhere between solid and definite" that Deeds declining performance would hamper the party's chances of winning LG and AG races. Of those downballot contests, the source added: "They pretty much live in the shadow of the top of the ticket."

    Soon after polls closed on November 4 last year, officials announced the most momentous state result of the night. Barack Obama had become the first Democrat in 40 years to win Virginia. The race for the White House was effectively over. Next Tuesday, barring an electoral earthquake, the Democratic candidate for Governor of Virginia will lose to a Republican, possibly by a double-digit margin. In the Democrats’ first big test at the polls since Mr Obama swept to power, his aides have been reduced to spreading the blame for Creigh Deeds’s presumed defeat in private briefings. Despite the bad blood,...

    HAMPTON ROADS, Va. - President Barack Obama is expected to draw thousands to the Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk today as he continues to campaign for Virginia Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Creigh Deeds . Crews inside "The Ted" worked overnight Tuesday to change the venue from a comedy event to the stage that can handle a major political rock show. The Deeds campaign has been running ads for weeks showing the President supporting Deeds for Governor. Today he'll be doing it in person, much to the enjoyment of his youngest supporters. 9-year-old Asia Shell and her father, who both campaigned...

    This is one Mr. Deeds who apparently isn't going to town. The collapse of the Democratic campaign for governor of Virginia speaks volumes about what the body politic is trying to tell Obama's Democrats. They're learning, painfully, that campaigning without George Bush is baffling, frustrating and scary. Worse, it offers a preview of what the congressional campaigning will be like next year. For weeks, The Washington Post, house organ of the national Democratic Party, pounded away at McDonnell, the Republican nominee, for having written politically incorrect term papers in graduate school, as proof that he doesn't like women very much....

    With only a week to go before we vote in Virginia’s odd-year election, the outcome looks good for the Republican statewide slate. The Democrats, optimistic a month ago, have taken to blaming their candidate, Creigh Deeds, for the loss to come — although Deeds has run exactly the race the national Democrats wanted him to run, trying to use a "wedge" issue to mislead voters.

    The Democrats' decade-long push into Virginia -- a national bragging point that they were moving into the once-solid Republican South -- may be coming to an end. Polls suggest that the Republicans could win the governor's office on Nov. 3 for the first time in more than a decade. One of only two statewide races this year -- the other is the governor's race in New Jersey -- the Virginia contest is being watched as a referendum not only on the Democrats' appeal in the region, but also on the party's agenda next door in Washington. President Barack Obama will...

    The hundreds of civil war gravestones in Culpeper cemetery tell of the town’s bloody history. Halfway between the opposing capitals of Richmond and Washington, it saw more battles than anywhere else in the United States. Today this town in the foothills of Virginia’s Blue Ridge mountains is a battlefield of a different kind. In 10 days’ time Virginia, which last November voted for a Democratic presidential candidate for the first time since 1964, goes to the polls for a governor in the first electoral test of the Obama presidency. This contest between Bob McDonnell, a Republican, and Creigh Deeds, a...
