Heath Shuler for Vice President!

Obama's decision on second in command is imminent. Vegas says it's down to Kaine, Biden or Bayh.


So says George W. Grayson, former Virginia state legislator and an alleged professor at William & Mary.

He says Heath Shuler is the man.

Grayson outlined his case in an op-ed for the Asheville Citizen-Times earlier this month.

"[T]he quarterback-turned-politician could help Obama and the Democrats overcome the image of Chablis-sipping, Brie-munching elites who appeal to urban denizens, college graduates, and minorities but strain to “connect0 with small farmers, coal miners, and blue- and pink-collar voters.

"In contrast to Obama’s condescension and extremely liberal voting record as a state legislator and senator, Shuler opposes abortion, favors gun owners’ rights, and believes that newcomers seeking to become citizens should obey U.S. laws rather than sneaking across the border and throwing themselves into the arms of immigration lawyers."

Sure, Grayson's argument is cut from whole dumbassish cloth. The only thing he left out is how much experience Shuler already has at being Number Two in DC.*

But if losing winnable elections was an Olympic sport, the Dems would make Phelps look like Sacramone.

Obama/Shuler! Deal with it!

*Sorry. Coffee.

    A true American patriot heath Shuler drafted the federal SAVE ACT (H.R.4088) enforcement immigration law.

    Heath Shuler is the true representative of the American people, because he believes in the 'Rule of Law" He is not like most Democrats, who are Liberals and socialists in disguise like Diane Feinstein, Speaker pelosi, Harry reid and the majority of the party.

    He wants the border fence as originally planned, not the scaled-down, underfunded facimile. He wants predatory employers punished under the SAVE ACT laws. He wants illegal aliens to leave of their own accord or face the consequences of deportation or even prison. He wants 20.000 more US Border Patrol agents and training for police department. He wants the SAVE ACT fully funded, which is pennies to what taxpayers are forced to pay under federal mandate annually.

    Shuler would make a excellent VP as he ignores the liberal mentality, and trusts in the American peoples understanding of the Constitutional law. Read more at NUMBERSUSA, CAPSWEB.

    Nothing says True Patriot like "Let's build a big fence and put 20,000 more folks on the payroll to watch it!"

    Good god, Brittanicus, do you have any idea how silly that sounds? Three words: "Cost/Benefit!"

    Tom Brady, now that dude's a True Patriot. You agree, Brittanicus?

    In any case, thanks for playing the feud!

  • Stop Shuler

    Not funny, Dave. Don't make me start the website up again...

  • Dave McKenna

    Stop Shuler:

    oh, my! i'd suffer through eight years of Obama/Shuler if it means the return of the world's a better place with your site in it!

    fab to hear from you...

    That Shuler is sure quite a guy but does he qualify for Vice President? No, he does not, folks. For border patrol, maybe.

    Had Brittanicus been intelligent, he or she would never have posted such nonsense.

    The problem with Shuler as VP is the same as Tim Kaine as VP. One, Shuler was elected to congress in 2006. He doesn't have that much political experience. McCain will use that to get folks who undecided to vote for him election. In addition, Shuler and Kaine's view on reproductive rights are opposite of Obama. Heck, Tom Ridge, one of the frontrunners for GOP VP, is a pro-choice. I know the democrats are trying to attract voters who lost faith in the GOP, but Heath Shuler isn't the best choice.

  • Right Democrat

    Heath Shuler is a rising star within the Democratic Party and may end up on a national ticket at some point in the future.
