Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Just four years ago Virginia seemed a tough lift for national Democrats, moderate Jim Webb barely winning his 2006 U.S. Senate Campaign even after George Allen’s infamous “macaca” incident. But now the state Obama became the first Democratic presidential candidate to win since 1964 is looking like something of a firewall for Barack Obama, the brutal economy and liberal discontent notwithstanding.

“It continues to look like Virginia may be Obama’s firewall state,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling, which released a poll on Wednesday showing Obama’s approval rating in positive territory there, and the president leading Mitt Romney by six points and Newt Gingrich by seven. “He’s holding up well there and it’s going to be tough for the Republicans to get to 270 electoral votes without it in their column.”

    I want you if you can to tell my President that I want him to stop giving in to the Repubs I understand that he does not want the people to suffer any more then we already are and that he figures he is dam if he does and dam if he doe’s not. well I’m a father of 8 children and have been unemployed for a year and I have cancer, those we need every dollar that we can get I rather him hold back on everything even closing the goverment, I’m sure there are some funds some where to keep open only the main office but not the congress. the new group there needs money and after a month of no pay to the congress and senate they will feel like the 99%, and the people will come to him and want him to stay our President. tell him to put the entire jobs bill in and the taxs relife but get 3 to 5 years. 99% of us will support him that I do know, the President is ten years younger than myself I to was born on August 4th 1950. I’m a Vietnam Vet 1969 thru 1970 who still believes in my country those there was a time our country looked down on us, I thank you and I pray that you can get this message to my President before he signs any of the bills. Thank You Ernest Simmons New Jersy
