“I think a lot of the liberal media is used to being able to scream otherwise-conservative people down — they just cower. I don’t do that. That just makes them all the madder.”

“I take great joy in winning when I’m not supposed to win.”

November 12, 2010: Obama’s Claiming More Power Over Americans Than King George III, Says Virginia Attorney General
“Now, Americans endlessly debate the meaning of each part of the Constitution. But one thing that every American should be able to agree on, if you think in terms of Venn Diagrams–I was an engineer before I was a lawyer, so I do things like this–the circle of power that represents federal power under the Constitution must be entirely within the circle of power exercised by King George III and the Parliament of Great Britain. Otherwise, why rebel? And, yet, here we have a Congress and a president who are exercising power that even Parliament and King George III acknowledged they did not have.”

You certainly want everybody in your society to be integrated in the society, so, that’s a focus that I’d like to take, but there’s a distinction. And it’s one that the General Assembly seems to be wrestling with every year, and we’ll leave that one to them for now.”

March 6, 2010: Cuccinelli says public colleges can’t protect gays
Sexual orientation as a protected class in state colleges and universities
“In addition to passing the VHRA, the General Assembly has on numerous occasions considered and rejected creating a protected class defined by sexual orientation.  In doing so, it has affirmed that no state agency can reach beyond such clearly established boundaries.”
“My advice letter reminds our public colleges and universities that their powers are limited by the Constitution of Virginia and our laws, and that no matter how well-intentioned their efforts, they may not exceed those limits.”
