Posted on 09/16/2010 7:30:04 PM PDT by Federalist Patriot
Here is video of Charles Krauthammer on with Bill OReilly tonight, where he said he believes there is a 1 in 10″ chance Christine ODonnell will win the November Election to the U.S. Senate in Delaware.
Krauthammer said it is a huge mistake to jeopardize the Delaware Senate seat by nominating Christine ODonnell over Mike Castle. Krauthammers contention is that its all about control of the Senate whether you would rather have the GOP setting the agenda, or Harry Reid / Chuck Schumer as Majority Leader.
Krauthammer challenged Jim DeMint and Sarah Palin whom he said got her nominated to go to Delaware and help her get elected in November.
Now show me, Krauthammer said, about DeMint and Palin. He also said he hopes he is wrong, because the GOP needs Delaware to take control.

With ‘friends’ like this who needs enemies? So much for supporting your nominee.
I sent her a 100.00. That was more than I could really spend at this time, but she needs to make this statement.
I love Charles but right now he needs to join Rove in the sandbox on the other side of the playground.
And when she does get elected, will these POS RINOs get lost?
In this economy, PeeWee Herman could win running with an R after his name.
yup thats what he said..he didnt look happy..but who would be happy with the rino alternative...
Almost always agree with Charlie, but on this one he is 100% wrong.
That makes a grand total of two of you. Well, we can do a poll of the illegal aliens on Mitt’s lawn and see what they think, but I’m betting you guys are still on your own.
I am reminded of the words of Senator Zacharias Montgomery in his 1886 Book entitled "Poison Drops in the United States Senate . . . ." Although his treatise dealt primarily with the public school question, the following remarks might be helpful to those who, today, consider themselves as TEA Partiers, or Taxed Enough Already candidates. Whether they win or lose, they will know that they have taken a stand for liberty.
Excerpts from Zacharias Montgomery:
"My countrymen, disguise the fact as we may, there is in this country to-day, and in both the political Parties, an element which is ripe for a centralized despotism. There are men and corporations of vast wealth, whose iron grasp spans this whole continent, and who find it more difficult and more expensive to corrupt thirty odd State Legislatures than one Federal Congress. It was said of Nero of old that he wished the Roman people had but one head, so that he might cut it off at a single blow. And so it is with those moneyed kings who would rule this country through bribery, fraud, and intimidation.
"It is easy to see how, with all the powers of government centered at Washington in one Federal head, they could at a single stroke put an end to American liberty.
"But they well understand that before striking this blow the minds of the people must be prepared to receive it. And what surer or safer preparation could possibly be made than is now being made, by indoctrinating the minds of the rising generation with the idea that ours is already a consolidated government ; that the States of the Union have no sovereignty which is not subordinate to the will and pleasure of the Federal head, and that our Constitution is the mere creature of custom, and may therefore be legally altered or abolished by custom.
"Such are a few of the pernicious and poisonous doctrines which ten millions of American children are today drinking in with the very definitions of the words they are compelled to study. And yet the man who dares to utter a word of warning of the approaching danger is stigmatized as an enemy to education and unfit to be men tioned as a candidate for the humblest office.
"Be it so. Viewing this great question as I do, not for all the offices in the gift of the American people would I shrink from an open and candid avowal of my sentiments. If I have learned anything from the reading of history, it is that the man who, in violation of great principles, toils for temporary fame, purchases for himself either total oblivion or eternal infamy, while he who temporarily goes down battling for right principles always deserves, and generally secures, the gratitude of succeeding ages, and will carry with him the sustaining solace of a clean conscience, more precious than all the offices and honors in the gift of man.
"History tells us that Aristides was voted into banishment because he was just. Yet who would not a thousand times rather today be Aristides than be numbered amongst the proudest of his persecutors.
"Socrates, too, in violation of every principle of justice, was con demned to a dungeon and to death. Yet what name is more honored in history than his? And which of his unjust judges would not gladly, hide himself in the utter darkness of oblivion from the with ering scorn and contempt of all mankind ?
"From the noble example of Aristides and of Socrates let American statesmen learn wisdom, and from the undying infamy of their cowardly time-serving persecutors let political demagogues of today take warning."
Stop the childishness already.
Don’t worry CK it’s coming, see you in November.
Thank you for posting this, Federalist Patriot.
What was dumber. Campaigning for O’Donnell. Or campaigning for the Iraq invasion?
Chas, Kristol and the rest of the neocons should shut up.
If all of Sarah’s Senate endorsements win except for O’Donnell, Charles is going t osay Palin was a failure.
When O’Donnell wins, and I think she will, maybe Krauthammer will STFU.
Krauthammer is a proven incompetent psychiatrist who
was unable to diagnose Obama, but lied and claimed
he was ‘ok’. Ignore him and his twisted agenda.
You know that is almost word for word what Rush read from a republic “strategist” from some article this morning.
I wish I could remember that guys name.
sounds like the talking points from the “establishment” GOP have made ther way out and the good Doctor is one of the disseminators.
Who would of thunk it......
Majority in the Senate doesn’t mean jack crap if we had ended up with 5-10 liberals who would vote with the Dems. I’ll take 47 with a slew of new conservatives.
You really need to become a Patriot instead of a Republican Party follower... The world need much less of followers and lots more voters that support the Constitution.
I know your moniker identifies you, but really, think a bit more when trying to determine the outcome of this monstrous Tea Party Revolution... Do you really want to be left behind?
Your decision...and it is going to happen with or without you...
Keep talking, Charles, and you and Karl Rove will be blackballed by the Conservative Nation. No more book deals for you turncoats.
Of course you do, dear.
Krauthammer needs to go back to writing speeches for Walter Mondale.
O'Donnell probably hasn't been cleared by the neocons yet. What if they endorsed her and then found out that she's more pro-USA than pro-Israel?
“I absolutely agree with everything that Charles Krauthammer has said.”
You’re a RINO lady?
Hey, I’m just being thorough. We have to look for as many like-minded folks as we can find, don’t we?
Considering the timing of Mitt’s O’Donnell endorsement, I guess he’ll have to head down to help after the election is already over, but better late than never.
Is all this Rove/Krauthammer/Mittbot stuff really necessary? Do people really buy into that silly article yesterday that said Mitt would benefit for 2012 by O’Donnell losing?
Hasn’t Mitt done enough damage without jeopardizing this election too?
If Chuckie and his Ruling Class/Establishment Republicans want to see Christine ODonnell elected, the first thing they need to do is STFU if they’re not going to say anything nice. That will go a long way.
Do you plan on throwing a tantrum or supporting the Republican nominee, GOP_Lady?
What purpose does this negative navel-gazing serve, other than a self-serving attempt to create a foregone conclusion?
Live up to your chosen FR handle and support the Republican candidate. Cease with the coy undermining.
Good luck with that Charles. Palin and DeMint were simply posturing for their own 2012 ambitions. They are not doing it for gaining a governing majority in Congress.
If we are not aggressive, I fear we will water down the groundswell inertia. If we do a numbers thing (like Rush talked about today when opining on Rove) we may win but there will always be those legislators on the edge who can be bought and could defect.
We have to make the strongest statement we can.
Patrick Henry summarized it best.....
Meaning that you and your moniker are of and for the GOP regardless of their beliefs or who they support.
Does that not bother you?
I didn’t bring “Mittbot” stuff up. You did. Remember?
I believe Palin and Demint will campaign for her and I think Mr. Coons needs to stop and think before he ‘assumes his Senate seat’...things change over night and this race will tighten up.
The fact is that Charles Krauthammer is correct, and if I didn't agree with him, I would say so.
How does it make Charles a RINO to believe this was a tactical mistake?
Exactly. Ruling Class is practicing gluteus protectus.
You Palin bots should stop calling everyone who opposes her grand scheme for the GOP RINOs.
That’s not what I’m saying. I’m just wondering if that is the motivation behind all of this. And if so, is it necessary? Has Mitt Romney not cost us all enough that he has to destroy this too? How much before it’s finally enough?
The right-wingers have had the scare of their lives with the nomination of O'Donnell. They were not prepared to wake up with whom they so gleefully climbed into bed.
Krauthammer has called them out and invited them to 'put up or shut up.'
Seven weeks will tell.
Again, I just agree with Charles Krauthammer on this one and if I didn't, I would say so.
