Apparently, Ralph Northam has gotten desperate. He now has former President Barak Obama campaigning for him and the rest of the Democratic ticket (well, maybe not Justin Fairfax (see here)) in Virginia.
Consider the irony in this quote.
We have seen this so many times before,” said Obama, who spent five minutes tearing into the strategy. “You’ve got the advertisement. There is some ominous voice. Everything is kind of dark. Just letting you know that somebody is coming to get you. That our values are at risk if you vote for Ralph. They don’t really tell you exactly why. We have seen it before. And it is a tactic that shows Ralph’s opponent does not think highly of Virginians.” (from here)
Check out more of Gillespie’s advertisements here. Then ask yourself this question: How is Obama’s endorsement supposed to strengthen Northam’s and other Democrat’s credibility on issues like crime and illegal immigration? Didn’t Obama have a disastrous record on energy, defense, crime, and illegal immigration? If anything worked correctly, like increased energy production in the United States, was it not in spite of Obama? Doesn’t the acceptance of Obama’s endorsement by Northam and the rest of the Democratic ticket actually increase the credibility of Gilespie’s advertisements?
Is Gillespie my idea of what a Conservative should be? No, but Northam is most certainly Obama’s idea of what a Liberal Democrat should be. Therefore, I will vote for Ed Gillespie and the rest of the Republican ticket, and, thanks to Obama, rest much more secure in the knowledge I have made the best choice I could.
Note: It is a matter of record that Governor Terry McAuliffe violated Virginia’s Constitution and restored the voting rights of hundreds of thousands of felons, and he fought the courts to do it (Virginia’s McAuliffe to announce restoration of voting rights to 13,000 felons). Respect for the Law is no obstacle to them. Whether it is good for our country or not, Liberal Democrats have demonstrated repeatedly they will do anything to win.
