How the NRSC, Cornyn, Graham and Rove lost the GOP as many as five Senate seats
Doug Ross @ Journal ^ | 11/6/2010 | Doug Ross

Posted on 11/06/2010 1:49:30 PM PDT by nhwingut

The National Republican Senatorial Committee spent $3 million in the week before the election on the ill-fated campaign of Carly Fiorina, despite polling that showed her trailing by 9 points to the tiny Marxist Barbara Boxer (Fiorina ended up losing by... 9.8%).

In the mean time, Ken Buck lost by a tiny margin in Colorado; Nevada's Sharron Angle lost by a similar narrow vote total, Dino Rossi was edged by Patty Murray in Washington, 27,000 votes swung the election against Christine O'Donnell in Delaware and and Joe Miller is hanging by a thread in Alaska.

In Alaska, the final results may not be known for some time, but the NRSC's final ads actually ended up helping Lisa Murkowski in her write-in campaign against GOP nominee Joe Miller. Instead of attacking Murkowski -- the candidate who most threatened the party's nominee -- the NRSC instead took aim at Democrat Scott McAdams, who had no chance of winning. Any support they drove from McAdams was far more likely to go to Murkowski than to Miller -- meaning the NRSC effort probably did more harm than good for Miller's campaign.

In other words, the NRSC's idiocy -- combined with outrageous remarks by Karl Rove on national television -- likely doomed four or five true conservative candidates to extinction.

In the post-election debrief, the Nixonian RINO contingent of Whimsy Graham, John Cornyn and the rest of the NRSC's ludicrous cadre of losers blamed... staunch conservative Jim DeMint, who had funded a handful of Tea Party-backed Senatorial winners like Pat Toomey (PA), Marco Rubio (FL), Rand Paul (KY), Mike Lee (UT) and Ron Johnson (WI).

Oh, but that $8 million spent on Fiorina's campaign didn't hurt at all -- right, boys?

Pretty good analysis... Takes the RINO whine and serves it back in their faces.

Very good analysis indeed. Imagine what Rossi could have done with some of that eight million.

It wasn’t idiocy ... it was the ruling class in action. The Grand Old Potty needs to be reminded they work for us.

27,000 votes swung the election against Christine O'Donnell in Delaware

Delaware is a tiny state. 27,000 votes is a huge margin in Delaware.

It was intended sabotage by the McLame/Mittens/Bush/Rockefeller wings of the GOP. They are very afraid of the Tea Party.

We were being told Fiorina was running neck-and-neck with Boxer until the last few days of the campaing.

If this was the result of a misinformation campaign by the RATS, I give them kudos.

This is a weak half analysis, since it does not take into account the ENORMOUS resources the DNC and Obama bin Biden had to expend to counter in California. For example, instead of the time and money DNC/Obama/Biden/Clinton raised and spent in California, they would have had available to spend in states like Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Florida, Missouri, Carolinas and more.

John Kasich (very possible future president), Toomey, and many others who won across the states should thank Fiorina for taking on Boxer until the last days of the campaign!

Barbara Boxer was a tempting target due to her high negative ratings. Conservatives (myself included) didn’t think that Californians who disliked Boxer would vote for her, but some of them clearly did.

Christine O’Donnell was not ready for prime time. She was a strong conservative running in an urban liberal state where Obama remains popular. In fact, she was so inept, she could be described as Katherine Harris on steroids. I don’t like Mike Castle’s record, but he would have waltzed into the Senate. I predicted disaster in Delaware if O’Donnell was the nominee and I take no joy in being right.

As for Alaksa, the NRSC’s decision made sense in a way. Perhaps they hoped that liberals would react against the negative ads and swing from Murkowski to McAdams, handing Miller the election.

It’s quite possible that some of the money spent for Carly Fiorina would have been a boon to Ken Buck and Dino Rossi. In retrospect, the NRSC was too hopeful about the prospects in California, but I can’t condemm them for that because I was too.

As Rush so rightly pointed out, Graham & Lott, along with Cornyn, told us we needed to support RINOS: Fiorina, Crist, Castle, Bennet (Utah), Lowden (Nevada). Proving these guys know zilch. And I have had it with Rove. He’s nothing but a Progressive Republican. His 15 Minutes is long since over. He needs to get the hell off the stage.

Not so sure it's a bad thing. A six seat pick-up was a great day. Two years ago, demholes were talking about picking up KY, OH, MO and FLA this year. Didn’t happen. Pubbies handily defended these seats and took 6 of 13 of their seats. Only 6 months ago, no reasonable person thought 10 seats was remotely possible. The fact that a few months later, leading into the election many reasonable observers thought it was possible showed how much trouble the demholes were in. By that time dem strongholds like IL, WI, WA, WV and CA were in play and the demholes were on defense everywhere. As sweet as it would have been to take down Boxer and Reid, there’s several reasons it’s probably better the pubbies came up short:

1 - A pathetic and disgusting Harry Reid will still be the face of the democrats in Congress.

2 – If the pubbies took the Senate, Obama – fully supported by his mediawhores - would run against a do-nothing-Congress.

3 – Pubbies might have defacto control. Manchin can’t support Obama, otherwise he’s toast in 2 years. there’s a dozen demholes in red or purple states up for re-election in ’12. They won’t be marching in lockstep with dear leader anymore. I’ll bet now that the Repubs pick up another 6 seats in 2012.

4 – the most important plus is this: Having 51 R seats would put too much power in the hands of RINO fools like Graham, McCain, Snowe, Collins, etc…Obama could easily pick-off any two of these losers on any given issue.

It was a great day. However, the Tea Party are the WINNERS. The RINOs got the boot along with the ‘Rats. The NRSC screwed the pooch. The blame goes to the RINOs, not the Tea Party candidates.

I’m pretty much as pissed at the Republican party as I am with the Democrats. The party as a whole sucks. I don’t even tell people that I am a Republican anymore, I say I’m a conservative. Rove, Lott, Graham are a disgrace and even Steele and other high up leaders who are not quite as bad are still needed to be removed from their positions. From now on, anyone who even uses the term “compromise” is out as far as I’m concerned. We don’t need the President to “work with us” we need to remove him from office.

Very good points. Plus, with having to garner 60 votes in order to move a bill through the Senate, even with a Republican majority, the Dems would have made sure nothing the Republicans put forward would pass.

Just the same, I am disappointed at the poor campaigns run by Fiorina and Whitman here in CA. Boxer and Brown were so beatable. Both had high negative ratings. Fiorina’s campaign was a joke.

” I know one thing: that $3 million spent in the final weeks on those five campaigns could have swung four or five seats to the GOP.”

American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS spent 38 million running ads all over the country helping get Republicans elected nationwide.
No other group raised as much.
They coordinated with candidates and conservative groups and shared resources and strategy in a way that has never been done before by Republicans.
They plan on running ads during the lame duck session of Congress against the Democrats.
The two organizations are founded by Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie .

“One of this election cycle’s major third party groups is announcing it will spend more than four million dollars in the next week
in its largest media buy of the season spread across eight of the key Senate battlegrounds.
In an effort to help elect Republicans in these races,
American Crossroads will spend almost $800,000
in Colorado and $350,000 in Nevada while its affiliate Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (GPS) is buying time in Illinois,
Washington state, Missouri,
Kentucky and Pennsylvania. “

In other words, the NRSC's idiocy
This was not idiocy. It was intentional.
Jim DeMint MUST challenge Cornyn for the chairmanship of the NSRSC in an all out scorched earth campaign. Win or lose, DeMint must destroy Cornyn and take him out of that position. It would be Jim DeMint's most important campaign and cause to date. We need DeMint to do this. It is his calling. This is no time for him to back down, fall in line, or play the Washington Party game. Do you hear us calling, Jim?

It's interesting that after the wipe-out of the democrats, some freepers post any no-account blogger they can find to whine about not getting a supposed 100% victory.

How about realizing some of the candidates were not going to get elected no matter what.

If the respective campaign managers couldn't figure out how to run a winning campaign, maybe the issue is the manager himself. Sometimes the opposition just has better political talent.

Excellent. I concur with your analysis. I have no love for any RINO country club type, but what the heck? We won big. In the wake of such a great victory why start a bickering contest over what might have been?

Let’s enjoy the huge victory and work to try and make greater gains against Democrats and the Republican establishment RINOs in ‘12.

"Barbara Boxer was a tempting target due to her high negative ratings. Conservatives (myself included) didn’t think that Californians who disliked Boxer would vote for her, but some of them clearly did."

In the late summer of 2009, Larry Elder went to Cornyn and the NRSC to solicit their support in running against Boxer. He was rejected in favor of Fiorina. I contend that Elder would have been both more energizing to the conservative base, drawn a larger minority vote and squelched liberal turn out. In short, he would have had a far better chance at winning.

Here is the silver lining. We conservatives have established a huge beachhead in this past election. The RINO Whineo’s are screaming not because we cost the Republican Party control of the senate but rather because we are very near to over throwing them and their elitist rule of the Republican Party.

In the future do not send any money to any National RINO Committee. Send the money but sent it straight to a real conservative. It would be far better to a RINO loose than to have a Fifth Column in our ranks working against us.

I think the failure to get at least two more Senate seats was a disaster. If we win the presidency in 2012, we still need at least 60 votes in the Senate to break a filibuster of Obamacare repeal. As of today, we are 13 short, and I don’t think we will get nearly that many in 2012.

Once the “benefits” start kicking in, it may be impossible to get rid of this monstrosity as there will be too many people dependent on it. Health care will be the way for the left to rule America forever. Even if it is not in power, its policies will still be in force. We are this close to being royally screwed for generations.

The article names some of the people we can thank.

*****Rove, Lott, Graham are a disgrace and even Steele and other high up leaders who are not quite as bad*****

I’m beginning to believe Michael Steele was used by Rove and others as the fall-guy. Steele could never match Rove’s PAC and stop the internal backstabbing. The failure of GOP leadership to support conservative nominees, or stay neutral tripped and trapped Steele, causing RNC donations to plummet.

I wrote something similar to this on Thursday.

As far as I am concerned come January we are on a two front war.

I want to wipe out to Benedict Arnold’s even more than I want the democrats.

Vermin like this need eradication.

I see Roves name on the roster list and I will thump on him every chance I get.

I will send money directly to a democrat just to make a point.

Graham, Alexander NRSC, et all. Don’t care.

This election should have been a tsunami that washed away any democrat hopes for staving off our demands and followed by an earthquake that flattened any thing left.

FUKR, FUMR, FULG, FULA and a very heartfelt FUNRSC.

Fags.

Delaware is a tiny state. 27,000 votes is a huge margin in Delaware.


There were about 197,000 votes cast for Coons/O’Donnell with Coons getting 174,000 of them giving him a win by almost 51,000 votes. You are correct that 27,000 votes is a big swing in that election.

Christine O’Donnell isn’t an unknown in Delaware. She ran for the Senate in 2006 losing in the GOP primary and then entered the General election as a write-in. She then ran again in 2008 with no primary opponent against Biden. Then in 2010 she won the GOP primary against Castle and then lost to Coons in the General. She should have some name recognition with the voters after that many times on the ballot for the same position.

She maybe more of an asset in future elections by finding ways to help other candidates with their campaigns and helping educate the voting public as opposed to being the candidate herself.

Oh well, then we should give a pass to these A-holes.

Rove and the NRSC were not one bit helpful and may have been all they needed to undermine Christinne.

The RNSC blatantly said they would not support Christinne as did the state org.

These Plicks even sent sent Graham and Alexander down to support Crist for the sole purpose of knee capping Rubio.

Thankfully a good American with a real backbone won but not for any support he recieved by our so called vaunted leaders.

CF - Christine, Buck, Fiorina, and Angle did conservatives proud. They all defeated the establishment hack Republicans like Lowden, Norton, Castle, and Campbell who, although arguably would have won their races, would have continued business as usual in the Senate. And would have set 2012 up for Republicans to be a disaster.

Dems in 2006 ran as Blue Dog Democrats. Many of these Democrats got elected in red states. That mask is completely exposed and they'll get destroyed by real conservatives.

Also with our tremendous successes in state legislatures and in Governor races, this creates a farm team for the future. These candidates will have actual records to run on instead of making these vanity runs at Congress.
