The Turning Point? UPDATED

From my past posts it should be obvious I am a big Chris Craddock supporter. I believe strongly that Chris is the only fiscally responsible candidate, who shares our Virginia values. I am very angry at the media for portraying Chris as a Falwell type nutcase who speaks whatever is on his mind. For three consecutive weeks Chris has been bashed by the papers, and I believe this weeks is the worst of all. NLS has the story with one of the articles, but does not mention the other article supporting Chris. I fear though, that with this continuing media bias, and continuing list of quotes that the race has become something that it shouldnt, and that is CLOSE. I hope that the campaign continues to work hard and clinch victory. These articles , and Chris' quotes just don't seem to help.

I noticed in another piece in the Centre View about mudslinging mailings that Caputo has stooped to using the inaccuarate Blade quote against Chris. See: http://www.connectionnewspapers.com/article.asp?article=57999&paper=61&cat=109

Seems those Caputo supporters that claim Caputo is not a negative campaigner have been wrong. Using a false quote is not good campaigning.

Anybody know if any of the charges against Craddock are true?

I find few in the pro-life movement who are against abortion to save the life of the mother, but I've seen this claim against 2 or 3 candidates recently.

I find it hard to believe he wants to let armed children walk around in schools, or that he is generally opposed to rape victims telling their doctors.

I'm guessing there is another side to this story. Maybe I'll look into it a bit....

When people hear that Gary Reese endorsed Caputo they think Gary is a sore loser.

A guess Gary protested a bit too much when he got mad at Michael Graham for calling him a RINO.

Reese tries to "school" Craddock about education money, saying that if the state spends more money on education, it would keep our property taxes lower.

Does Reese not know that we all pay taxes to the state? The state is not our rich uncle that we can turn to when we want to save money.

Let me just say that perhaps with the exception of the school bond issue I am completely confident that all of the assertions Reese makes are false. It's actually laughable for anyone to make them. It's typical partisan bile and Reese has shown his true color. Reese says he represented us as a Republican for 14 years, when except for the last 3 he was in a position that was officially non-partisan. The man is bitter and he is now a lying shill for the Democrats. A letter like this will motivate many to vote for Chris.

You left a comment on my blog about traffic tickets being criminal. Here is my answer:
Umm because speeding is illegal? Traffic tickets are given out by police officers who enforce the law. I agree that traffic tickets are a minor offense but "forgetting" to pay the fine is not. It shows a complete disregard for the law> If elected Craddock will be expected to make laws and figure out penalties for those laws. I'm sorry, but as a parent I think speed limits in residential areas are a good thing. Craddock's lack of respect for the law shows his lack of respect for society (and the families that live in it). See, conservatives talk about personal responsibility only when it applies to others. Craddock has shown an inability to take responsibility for his traffic tickets, and then he whines about it when his opponent uses it against him. Personal responsiblity and maturity are important issues when we consider our elected leaders. Sorry, but I thought Republicans and conservatives have a monopoly on personal responsibility.

I think to generalize about all conservatives is intellectually inaccurate.I am a conservative and have never had any legal troubles. I have received two speeding tickets, one when I was 17 and one when I was 19.

Also, you tout personal responsibility as a qualification for choosing an elected leader. What about advocating for personal responsibilty when creating a platform which includes legalizing abortion?

I really think that Chris has been quoted correctly about Africans and AIDS and opposing abortion under all circumstances. He's a neo-nazi and not a conservative. Face it, Michael Graham is a racist being called a RINO by a racist and buffoon is really not terribly damning. The culture of life boys never seem to have a problem with those of us who've experienced stoploss and seen our relatives and friends from high school and college around here lose their lives in Iraq. Where's the culture of life on that score?
