Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Sunday, November 18. Also, note the graphic to the right, which shows that despite hysterical teahdist cries to "stop the spending," in reality (something they're not well connected with) federal government spending has grown the SLOWEST under President Obama in the past 60 years or so. Hmmmm.

Video: Why would anyone be "shocked" at Romney's "gifts" comments?!? (0.00 / 0)
I'm frankly shocked that anyone would be "shocked" at almost ANYTHING Romney would say, but certainly his "gifts" comments were totally in character for that sociopathic slimeball.
