In Final Debate, Cuccinelli Attacks McAuliffe 'Platitudes'

Republican Ken Cuccinelli brought a circumspect, serious tone to his final debate against Democrat Terry McAuliffe. With less than two weeks before voters go to the polls, Cuccinelli tried to paint McAuliffe as a Washington insider who had done nothing for Virginia. “Terry McAuliffe literally did nothing for Virginia or Virginians before deciding to run for governor.

The Labor Department reported Tuesday that the economy added just 148k new jobs in September, down from a revised 193k jobs added in August.

ObamaCare Is Worse Than the Website

On Monday, President Obama spoke outside the White House, defending the roll-out of his signature legislative achievement, ObamaCare, aka the Affordable Care Act.

GOP Establishment Lost All Credibility In Fiscal Fight

To fully understand the state of play in the Republican party, look no further than Sens. Mike Enzi (WY) and Pat Roberts (KS).

Both, however, stood with Ted Cruz in the fight over ObamaCare. Not coincidentally, both face serious primary challengers. Oct 18, 2013 8:11 AM PT

The deal agreed to late Wednesday simply preserves the budget status quo for a handful of months. Oct 17, 2013 5:56 AM PT
