Many of us saw this coming a "Media-mile" away but unfortunately the majority of the Virginia voters thought Terry-Mac was the way to go this last election. Now he is just a mirror image of Obama in Wash DC ...

are just getting on him now for voting for Obamacare. We could have torn down

help us win elections,'' he said.
