  •  Well, why did NOVA vote for him, then? (1+ / 0-)

    It was obvious what a woman-hater he was from that damned master's thesis he wrote.  Not that I voted for him--I wasn't fooled for a single second.  I voted for Doofus.

      •  Yes, it was that but.... (0+ / 0-)

        His need to mix politics and religion was brought up during the election and he specifically said that was the "old" him and he didn't hold any those extreme "policy" positions any more. And of course, everybody took his word for it He's cut from the same cloth as Scotty Walker but he is much more dangerous IMHO.

        •  Why anyone believes a word that GOP (0+ / 0-)

          candidates say when they are running for election is a mystery to me.  There is overwhelming evidence that every moderate word is a lie and they will say anything to gain power over our lives and our pocketbooks.

    •  military and taxes, most people don't get the area (0+ / 0-)

      NOVA is "liberal" but in the 1% liberal class.  IE, middle class hating, union hating, rural people hating, anybody that didn't go to a top 10 school should be living in poverty so I can make more, screw you I got mine type of class.

      You're talking about one of the most wealthy regions of the entire nation.

      My mom pretty much sums up NOVA liberals.  Socially liberal as hell, but she started making six figures back in the late 70s and it went up from there.  And while she loves her ability to chose, and really hates the Republican men, she also hates paying taxes that do not directly go to her local area.  And what drives her vote really depends on what her concern is.

      But in the end all she'd like is for those Republicans to grow up and stop being social conservatives, and those Democrats to be reasonable and cut medicare get rid of social security and lower her taxes because she pays too much.

      NOVA is establishment as hell and 1% as hell.  You can't get any more "I vote liberal because I'm cosmopolitan, but everybody should just grow up, let the gays get married and get back to gutting social security like proper adults" than NOVA.
