    New Virginia Governor to Deliver GOP Response to State of the Union

    FOXNews.com - New Virginia Governor to Deliver GOP Response to State of the Union

    Newly inaugurated Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell will deliver the Republican response to President Obama's State of the Union address on Wednesday.

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader John Boehner announced the selection Thursday, with Boehner saying McDonnell was the choice because of his solutions-oriented approach to putting Virginians back to work.

    "As the American people continue to ask, 'where are the jobs,' Gov. McDonnell has offered common-sense economic policies in stark contrast to Washington Democrats' job-killing agenda," Boehner said in a written statement. "We don't need a government takeover of health care or a 'cap-and-trade' national energy tax -- we need a common-sense plan to help middle-class families and small businesses and allow them to keep more of what they earn so they can save, invest and hire."

    This is great news. McDonnell's inauguration speech was great, and it had me convinced that he is more of a fiscal conservative than the vast majority of Congress.

    It's impossible for him to do worse than Bobby Jindal did last year.

    McDonnell will do well. He'll certainly do better than Jindal.

    I wouldn't be so sure about his fiscal conservative credentials though. Our state is buried in debt and he's already reopening rest areas all along the interstates 1 year after we closed them. That was one of the many cost cutting measures the last governor and legislature implemented.
