Virginia News Headlines: Sunday Morning

by: lowkell

Sun Feb 10, 2013 at 07:02:10 AM EST


Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Sunday, February 10. Congratulations to Sen. Mark Herring (full disclosure: I'm consulting on social media for his campaign) and to Aneesh Chopra, who won the Mt. Vernon Democrats' straw poll last night at their Mardi Gras party. Finally, check out the video of Republicans "then and now" on the sequester. Note that they've totally changed their story.

*In speech, Obama to shift emphasis back to economy (In that context, the president should talk about the huge economic benefits of jumpstarting a clean energy revolution in this country.)
*Climate change and the president (For once, I wholeheartedly agree with the Post on something; we need to put a serious price on carbon ASAP!)
*664,000 Residents Without Power After Massive Storm Hits The Northeast
*The immense cost of Washington's budget gridlock (Thanks a LOT Teapublicans!)
*Why did I challenge the Boy Scouts' anti-gay policy? Because I am a loyal Scout.
*Virginia can't afford not to embrace Obamacare
*National parties gear up for Virginia governor's race
*Virginia governor election: Terry McAuliffe aims to break election trend (It's so funny how the media loves "trends" and other simplistic, easy-to-remember "rules" they can talk about and try to sound smart in the process.)
*McDonnell Urges Democratic Leaders to OK Roads Bill
*Kaine is adjusting to his new role
*Schapiro: Budget fine print has big impact
*Odd legislation puts Virginia General Assembly in national comic spotlight (Once again, thanks a LOT Teapublicans!)
*Northern Virginia officials cool to proposal allowing local tax hikes to pay for roads
*McDonnell says U.S. education is "slipping" behind other nations ("Mostly False" for McDonnell)
*Editorial: A promising start on better broadband ("The Roanoke Valley is falling behind its neighbors in access to high-quality Internet service, but a regional authority can help it catch up.")
*Vultures Beware: Virginia Town Targets Flock Of Unwanted Visitors
*Capitals break out of their funk ("Washington's offense and defense click against the Florida Panthers in front of an appreciative crowd.")
