We Got a Governor Race in VA This Year and Only One of the Candidates is a Vet!

Governor McDonnell has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? The only questions Virginians have to ask themselves this election cycle is do you want jobs or do you enjoy unemployment? Virginia has an unemployment rate at ~7% while the National average is ~9.4%, mainly because of a Republican legislature. If we were dumb enough to elect a Dem with "Card Check" and other business unfriendly initiatives on his agenda, we deserve to emulate California or Michigan with 15%+ unemployment and state insolvency.

Unfortunately, the entire Democrat Party is Union "owned" and "ACORN managed." Deeds even had the ACORN Organizer-in-Chief, President Obama, appear with him last week. What else can I say!

I would add that given Virginia's huge Military, Military retiree and veteran population, it should be noted that Lieutenant Colonel (USAR Ret) McDonnell is one of us and the only candidate in the race that has ever donned a uniform in defense of this nation. McDonnell was on active duty from Oct 76 to Apr 81 including 3 years overseas with the 2nd Armored Division in Germany. Even McDonnell's daughter, an Iraq War Vet, has more time defending this nation than Deeds!
