Do We Really Want To Keep Senator Allen?
Virginia deserves better – the problems require better.
Divisive partisan politics are preventing the country from coming to grips with critical issues facing our nation. From the fight against radical extremist terrorists to global warming to the weakening of the middle class to our burgeoning debt and failing social security system – there are major, major problems which have all worsened over the last five years. We need, in fact require, the type of common sense, pragmatic, integrity of people like Jim Webb. People who have a broad and experienced vision, with fresh ideas, and a willingness to roll up their sleeves and get to work at bringing about constructive change.
What we don’t need is the arrogance of back room politicians who see their hold on power as some sort of legitimate birthright or who pander to the lower common denominator of the political sentiment of the moment.
Given the opportunity to get to know the character of Jim Webb – and the opportunity to really see how little George Allen has accomplished (other than to be the lap dog of the moneyed Republican special interests) -- Virginians may well make the choice in November to bring to the Senate someone who can speak to and for all Virginians and who will work for our common progress rather than for his own self interest.
