Jeanette Rishell: I’m In Search Of A Clue

By Greg L | 13 May 2009 | Jeanette Rishell | 12 Comments

The Gainesville Times recently interviewed the hapless Jeanette Rishell trying to divine what legislative agenda she promises to pursue.  After what must have been a lengthy conversation, they came up empty.  Jeanette Rishell simply doesn’t have any ideas at all.

As far as funding transportation improvements, she’s still in search of ideas:

“Well, I’ll tell you, all options need to be on the table. And I’m willing to talk to any one, any time any where for ideas,” Rishell said, regarding transportation funding.

“All options” is a pretty thin cover for not having a clue about what to do in Virginia, but it sure does get a lot of play.

When asked whether the phrase “all options need to be on the table” is just political-speak for her supporting tax increases, Rishell replied, “No, that is not true. No one goes to Richmond to raise taxes. Nobody. There have been circumstances that have made that necessary in the part and there will be circumstances like that in the future.”

We learn however that she can kinda go both ways.  Go figure.

Something she does not favor is an increase in the gas tax as “it burdens those who can least afford to pay it.” Such a tax increase would also be reliant on a fossil fuel at a time when Virginia needs to be exploring alternatives forms of energy, she said.

However, at least talking about a gas tax would be one of the options on the table for Rishell because “I would know the Senate would want to talk about that and if the Senate wants to talk about a gas tax, we would have to discuss that.”

Just as long as someone else will take the political heat for proposing a tax increase, she’s ready to seriously discuss it.  Folks, that’s real leadership, I tell ya. It’s almost as good as telling bald-faced lies about your opponent, — but we can still talk about having “all options on the table” once again.  It sure beats either telling voters what you really intend to do, or admitting you have no idea what to do and are blindly casting about for someone else to clue you in.

Rishell did not speak specifically about which incentives she supports to bring in new jobs to the state and the 50th district, but she said, “I will meet with or talk with any one any time any where” because “only by bringing in business will we have the revenue to fund transportation” while protecting the core-services provided by the state.

In his years of serving in elected office, Delegate Jackson Miller hasn’t ever reverted to this kind of dodgy behavior.  We knew where he stood, he voted the way he said he would, and did what he said he would do.  Now why in the world would anyone want to trade that in for someone who can’t even explain their legislative agenda?

    Rishell could talk with “WHITE BIKE TOM” at the corner of Portner and Sudley to get some ideas about transportation. Like ahh..maybe we could all bike to work? Yeah that’s the ticket! Maybe at one of the BRUU pagan midnight full moon services (would that be ahh…like a black mass?) Rishell could confer with the mother earth goddess for a tax plan? Where do these clowns get the money to run a campaign?

    Jeanette Rishell reminds me of the type of leftist bitch in high school who took auto shop simply to attach jumper cables to her nipples.

    What is even funnier(or sad, depending on how you view it) is that there are many people who will vote for her because she is a Dem, and think her “ideas” are exactly the ones we need in Richmond.

    Also getting a laugh is her claim that she is willing to talk to anyone, anywhere. I’ve had the chance to talk with her on two occasions, and both times she turned tail once it was clear I was getting the upper hand on her in our discussion.

    She simply is clueless. She just needs to spend more time with her grandchild and accept the fact she is a horrible political candidate.

    This woman is really the most politically disoriented person I have ever seen. I really don’t think she is capable of a complex independent thought even remotely related to anything that should be done to achieve better governance.

    This woman is like a BAD PENNY you can’t get rid of. She runs, she losses, she runs, she losses, she runs, she losses. A normal person with any brain cells at all would get the message. Your not wanted. Are the Dems so hard up they have to keep pushing out the same brain dead people.

    I will vote for her provided:
    1. She (in writing) states that she will never support amnesty/pathway to citizenship (or whatever new term comes up) for illegal immigrants.
    2. She (in writing) states that she will work tirelessly to eliminate benefits to all illegal immigrants (foodstamps, subsidized housing, WIC, etc.).
    3. She (in writing) will make e-verify mandatory (there is absolutely no valid excuse not to use this FREE service).
    4. She (in writing) will make policy to shut down business that hire illegal immigrants (whether they “know” or not).
    So if she wants my vote….she had better get busy in putting these simple things in writing.

    Now look here….appears that our VA Senators (Warner and Webb) want illegal immigrants to have credit cards.

    Murders by illegals continues to rise although with tough politics, it could be zero.

    Gang activity increases (murder, drugs and terror mongers) continues which again could be eliminated by tough politicians.

    Business signs in Herndon are in a foreign language obviously aimed at other potential customers who most likely don’t speak English.

    Buildings are disfigured with graffitti, which ends up being an additionaly cost to the legals.

    Neighborhoods have residents that every weekend turn up the volume of their spanish music. Lawns are decorated with gaudy decorations. Corn stalks grow in front yards. Roosters crow in the morning from the backyard and cars are parked with what would appear three to four different families living in the residence.

    Emergency rooms are almost dedicated to foreign patients (I wonder why, ….no insurance, no job, result is emergency room use for colds, abrasions, etc…..making the legals, with insurance, wait longer at
    the hospital.

    Unemployment is at a record high and the illegals have jobs that nowadays I am sure would be performed by legals.

    Social services being provided to illegals at the expense of the legal taxpayer. Children of illegals are getting educations based upon the taxes that are being paid by the legals.

    Now, for the other side of the coin. For all of the above, we get in return people that wave their mexican flags in our faces, tell us that this is really their country and will work cheap. Is it worth it to the legals???

    Except for the woman part, I though you might have been referring to McCain! :)

    “Representative Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) has introduced the No Social Security for Illegal Immigrants Act of 2009.”
    We need to support this!
