“I am going to fight every single Republican politician that participated in this disgraceful disaster…”
Mark Levin Show February 25.
Bob McDonnell, a likely 2016 Presidential candidate, has clearly calculated that Americans won’t remember any of this by the time the Iowa State Fair rolls around 4 years from now.

There’s one thing uglier than a Democratic tax-and-spend spree. A Republican one. On Friday Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and a GOP-run legislature approved a five-year, $6 billion transportation bill financed almost entirely with higher sales and car taxes. The big winners are unions, real estate developers and the transit lobby.
Mr. McDonnell claims that “with this bill gas prices will be reduced” because he’s eliminated the 17.5 cents a gallon gas tax. Yet he’s replaced it with a more hidden 3.5% tax on the wholesale price of gas.
Erick Erickson isn’t a fan either…
If you are a conservative, remember Bob McDonnell thinks you’re an idiot.
That’s the only explanation I can think of for what just happened in Virginia this week. That, and that McDonnell is an unprincipled fake conservative whose promises are without value, an exemplar of the kind of big government pro-tax Republican who ruined the party’s stature with fiscal conservatives.
