Lots of political news to report!on January 15th, 2009 at 11:28 PM
Hello Readers of Red NoVA!
Thanks for the great start! We got almost 100 visits in the last few days. Now the next step: comment please! Blogs aren’t the end of a discussion, they are the beginning! Blogs seek to interact with voters everywhere. Every time Not Larry Sabato says something dumb, he has 40+ comments waiting for him! By all means, if you disagree with something I write, or even agree, feel free to let me know! I would love to hear the thoughts of voters in NoVA.
Now with that on the way, let’s get to the political headlines.
State of the Commonwealth- Gov. Tim Kaine gave his final State of the Commonwealth this week (thank God!), and of course, Virginians weren’t happy with what they heard. Del. Dave Albo and Sen. Steve Newman gave the GOP response. Check back to see a summary of all three speeches!
Farewell Address- President George W. Bush gave his final primetime address as President this evening (and Obama didn’t watch-he was at a bar). Check back soon to see a summary and my reactions.
Arlington Residents- Want higher taxes? Chairperson Favola seems to think so. I’ll provide the scoop, as well as a way to voice our opinion!
Meet Dave Foster- Our first Attorney General candidate interview! I sat down with Dave Foster today and had a wonderful interview. Check back over the weekend for the post!
Scandal in the White House! Well kinda. I’m talking about Obama’s Cabinet, already filled with scandal. No, and its not just Richardson. I’m talking about Hillary, Gietner, and Holder as well!
Obama’s most important act-Some alarming news this week about Obama’s views on the santicty of life. More to come..
Hopefully that should keep us busy for the next few days! Check back real soon for these stories and more!
