    Stewart would be the first of the local nutcases to breakout and attempt National office. God help us.

  • Loudoun Watcher says:

    He is rather a pompous ass. He’s also wrong about Allen’s base. He’s obviously running, why would he say he’s waiting a year to decide? By then, it’ll be all over but the shouting.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    Corey Stewart is a good man and far from pompous. If you have ever talked to him, heard him talk or are familiar with him in any way besides throwing rocks – you’d know this. 2012 is going to be very interesting in Virginia.

  • Loudoun Watcher says:

    You’re right. This video is the only evidence I have. And he sounds pompous to me. But I’m not exactly throwing rocks, just a softball at what I heard him say. I don’t have anything else to go on. You’re also right about 2012. But I meant what I said, Stewart is nuts not to come out strong soon and not wait until the seeds are sown by others.

  • G. Stone says:

    I know Corey and he is a good man and will make a good candidate . He is also willing to lead on important issues. George Allen too is a good candidate. I don’t believe his base has left but it has shifted. To suggest that a base stays in place with this much time having passed is naive. He can rebuild however he will have to be able to do so while in a primary against at least two strong challengers.

    It is my hope that Allen has a fresher team around him than last time. He got some really crummy advice after the Macca incident. he spent all his time trying to placate the Washington Post by apologizing every ten minutes. Shut up with the apologizes already move on, take control of the debate.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    I agree with Stone and I’m convinced George Allen would have won that election if he had told the WashPost to shove it, taken control of the talking points/issues and stopped apologizing for “the incident”. I’ve been a supporter of George Allen’s for years and I wish him well.

    FWIW LW, Corey Stewart is a straight shooter. I’ve never heard him dance around issues – he is not pompous in the least. What I believe you are detecting is real straight talk, not the McCain crap.

  • Chris P says:

    If being a nutcase means throwing illegal aliens out of your jurisdiction, then I want more nutcases in Loudoun

  • BlackOut says:

    Corey Stewart is a buffoon, there are hours of evidence on You Tube. Check it out. He’s a fear mongerer, and out for his own glory. Not much backbone with that guy, he’s just taking advantage of the gene pool in his jurisdiction. I am sure he’s very popular there, but no chance he extends his “appeal” to other parts of the state.

  • BlackOut says:

    Stoner, we agree. I hope for a new fresh start for Allen. He has a good shot at winning if he can establish a policy oriented appeal. He’s a very personable guy, the Macca incident was most unfortunate. Regardless of his ability to over come past labels he will toast Stewart in a state wide race.

  • Too Conservative says:

    Allen has serious electability issues in the Commonwealth. The party needs new blood.

  • BlackOut says:

    Too Conservative, are you sure you’re not talking about Dick Black?

  • Dan says:

    Like it or not, Allen is clearly running. In a Republican primary he will be formidable. Especially if it is a crowded field.

    He may be the easiest candidate to beat in the general election, but I wouldn’t bet against him in the primary.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    “Too Conservative, are you sure you’re not talking about Dick Black?”

    BO – Do you ever think/talk about anything other than Dick Black? If we were talking about turnips and peas you’d inject Dick Black.

  • BlackOut says:

    LL, do you ever think/talk about anything other than me? I am flattered.

    Stewart would be worse in the general than Allen.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    I talk about may things other than you BO, do you read? Don’t flatter yourself, although I am sure it is a habit of yours.

  • Aaron says:

    Everyone seems to forget that Marshall and potentially 2-4 other candidates will enter this field. This will not be a race between Allen and CS.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Shaun Kenney really went off the deep end on Stewart, accusing him of being anti-Catholic as well as anti-Hispanic for his desire to curb ILLEGAL immigration. Wow.

  • The Shaun Kenney post was insane…

  • G. Stone says:

    Stoner, we agree.

    Then I was wrong. Just kidding.

  • G. Stone says:

    Aaron is right there will be several other candidates. One may be Bob Marshall, another very good candidate and one heck of a smart guy.

  • BlackOut says:

    That made me laugh :) Touche.

    Marshall is unelectable in higher office. Now the stars are back in alignment.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    I love it when leftists call a Republican “unelectable” – let us all recall the these same chants over KC. Please, please, please – keep underestimating Marshall’s appeal and overestimating his detractors.

  • Shaun is not stupid, but because he lives amidst the rolling hills of central Virginia he is just badly uninformed on the subject of the effects of illegal immigration. He has no direct experience and will never have to worry about a boarding house opening up next door. There are people in Ashburn afflicted by the same myopia.

  • Riley says:

    Shaun is a friend of mine and a political ally. But he is dead wrong on this issue.

  • BlackOut says:

    Joe, my opinion is no one is saying there isn’t an illegal immigration problem or awareness of it, the complaint is leveled at Stewart and his tactics.

    Personally, I am well aware of boarding house issues. We have them in Ashburn as well.

  • Too Conservative. You said you think we need new blood. I’m curious who you are thinking about.

  • Loudoun Outsider says:

    As they used to say at my college, the guy is a goose.

  • Well, I just listened to the Corey Stewart video and I did not hear the least thing questionable about him or his “tactics.” BlackOut, I guess you are saying if I search the Web I will learn all the bad stuff about Corey Stewart via his videos? Ok , will check it out when I have a chance and let you know what I find.

  • BlackOut says:

    Joe, and there in lays the ability to have good debate.

  • The Bulletproof Monk says:

    I like Corey. I like Allen more.
