From an article in The Washington Post.




Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R) announced Sunday that he has reconsidered his decision from Saturday and will not seek to get several GOP presidential candidates added to the state’s primary ballot.

Every candidate except Mitt Romney and Ron Paul failed to meet the stringent requirements to get on the ballot for the state’s March 6 primary, and Cuccinelli said Saturday that he would seek to get them added to the ballot.



Here's a little good news on the election front, the Virginian Republican Primaries are down to Mitt Romney, and Ron Paul.

Officially Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, Michelle Bachman, Rick Santorum, and John Huntsman are NOT on the ticket in VA.
Although the former canidates are looking to take VA to court, that is unlikey to go well without the AG's support.

So, Virginia has a law that dictates the process for getting on the ballot. Only two of the candidates were capable of reading the law and complying with it fully. The rest of them cry foul and sue to be added just because that's what they want?

I guess intentions and desires trump actually getting results in this country.

Very funny ,

the other day there was an CNN interview with Ron Paul and the lady gave him a "hard" time about the quality of his management skills and staff about some minor incident about 20 years ago.. ... (You know, the endless implying..)

Now let's see if they are gonna do that to the other candidates.

Yes, and considering the fact that they'd like to change the rules, after the fact begs one to consider what they would change, and how, if they ever became President?

It's unfortunate that some feel that rules are for those of us that would actually follow thm. They "wouldn't" apply to them!

Now here is a thought...

Let's say the establishement is in total scare of Ron Paul.

Now when does he have a better chance? With only one opposite candidate or five opposer's?

With FIVE other candidates around lets say 15% and Paul 25 % would be a WINNING score.

With only two candidates his chances off winning are drastically less !!!

It is too early for the majority to really know Dr Paul's views, and they have seen the (unverified) claims of racist.. now 911 etc etc.. In this time slot, it is very bad for Dr. Paul to have only one candidate.


So some pressure from above" at the attorney?

So here could be a conspiracy!
