Cuccinelli shuns Cruz limelight
Politico, by James Hohmann

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 10/6/2013 11:21:54 AM

RICHMOND, Va.— That was awkward. In the clearest sign yet of the potent effect of the government shutdown on the Virginia governor’s race, Republican Ken Cuccinelli avoided being photographed with Ted Cruz at a gala they headlined here Saturday night—even leaving before the Texas senator rose to speak. Backstage, a source said, Cuccinelli urged Cruz to work with Democrats to end the federal shutdown. But he did not make that point, or even acknowledge Cruz, in short public comments to some 1,100 social conservatives. Cruz has become the face of GOP intransigence, and the conservative attorney general’s effort to distance

Well, there goes my hopes for a Republican governor for VA. Cooch baby, you just jumped the shark. Cuddling up to the McCainiac wing is only going to get you a bite on the backside.

What is with all the weapons grade stupid in the party right now? Cooch had better come up with a really good explaination or he is toast. If this source is right, he may have just handed the governorship to a really bad man.

Cuccinelli is a solid conservative. He´s also a realist. He doesn´t want to lose this election because the voters blame him for the shutdown.

Lonegan has the same problem in New Jersey--he´s being blamed for the shutdown because he´s a Republican.

I consider the source and filter anything coming from Politico or our resident Cruz/Palin hating RINO peanut gallery.

Having said that, if Cuccinelli is being advised by Karl Rove and the establishment RINOs including their duplicitous campaign advisors/losers and if Cuccinelli has shunned Cruz, he deserves to lose.

Where is it written that in order for a Republican to be considered conservative, he has to weld himself or herself to every other Republican who is considered conservative? They are not clones and they might differ on policies or tactics. It´s ok if that happens.

Here in Texas, we have two fine senators. Senator Cruz publicly refuses to endorse Senator Cornyn for reelection. Senator Cornyn differs from his colleague on the defunding tactic. Each position ought to be ok for each of these men. They remain conservative and they are not required to bond.

It isn´t just Politico. Cuccinelli met with reporters on Thursday. He made his position clear that he was giving in to pressure and siding with democrats. Meaning he agrees with the media that it´s not democrats´ fault, it´s Ted´s fault, and that ObamaCare should be separate. Cuccinelli is simply revealing he´s really a democrat just like the rest of the establishment since the GOP never intended to repeal or defund ObamaCare. Boehner has had two and a half yrs. and he´s refused to bring an ObamaCare defunding measure to the floor even once. ObamaCare was ruled by the Supremes to be legal only as a tax. It has never been passed as a tax by the House. Boehner has never brought it up. Cuccinelli should be talking about impeaching Boehner not praising democrats. McCauliffe deserves to be gov. of Va. when compared to Cuccinelli.

I don´t know where people get the idea Cuccinelli is anything other than conservative. He´s 100 percent conservative. The liberals on this site are trouble makers, they are more in line with the Huffington Post. Just because the Politico reported this does not make it true.

As noted by #13, another posting from Politico by a Palin/Cruz hater from our cabal here to stir up dissension.

It´s all politics. Cuccinelli hasn´t much choice because he´s running for the governorship of a state that has tens of thousands of government workers who are out on furlough. He doesn´t have to publicly embrace Ted Cruz to actually support his positions, but he can´t do anything if he doesn´t get elected.

McAuliffe has been running ads accusing Cuccinelli of supporting the government shutdown. VA has a lot of the nonessential workers who are not getting pay checks at the moment. Our current Gov. Has been acting like Chicken Little saying the sky is falling because so many Virginians are on an involuntary vacation.
Cuccinelli had pulled even with McAuliffe last week. I´m sure he doesn´t want to do anything to turn off potential voters so close to the election. Cuccinelli is far more conservative than Bob McDonnell. He needs to win. I like Ted Cruz very muchtoo, but right now he is the media´s satan and I can´t blame Cuccinelli for not wanting the association to be made.
Cuccinelli has been successful in getting enough votes in northern VA in the past to get elected AG. I´m praying he can again have enough success there to win the Governor´s race. If he has to steer clear of Ted Cruz to do it, I´m okay with it.

So based on a clearly biased site hit piece, Virginia should elect an incompetent puppet like McAuliffe who will do to Virginia what Democrats did to Detroit and Chicago and help Obama complete his transformation of the country.

There is no hope. The progressives are united in their desire to destroy the Republic and conservatives are united in their desire to destroy each other.

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government. (Snip)Because of the cheap rent, some, including fellow cattlemen who don´t ranch on public lands, call public land ranchers "welfare ranchers" and have no sympathy for the Western lot. But Griggs said they don´t understand that ranching public land is "not a bargain." "On public lands, you might get kicked off at any moment for a turtle. That´s kind of the deal," he said.

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million.
