Castle is also refusing to repeal Obamacare, that alone should disqualify him.

I am not a fan of Castle, but at least be honest about his position. He is not in favor of trying to repeal Obamacare because Obama would veto any such bill, and so it would be a waste of time and effort. He has said he would support such an effort if a GOP president is elected in 2012.

Now, you might think it is worth trying to repeal Obamacare even with the knowledge the effort will be vetoed, and that is a legitimate opinion. But I think there is a big difference between saying I don't want to repeal Obamacare, and saying I don't believe we can repeal Obamacare right now...

Why would forcing Obama to veto a repeal of Obamacare be a waste? Sounds to me like a picture perfect issue to frame the 2012 election with.

I stood on the mall and protested the night before they passed this monster and I can’t abide anyone, candidate or Congressman, dismissing it. Whether they can actually repeal it or not, stopping it should be every conservative’s #1 priority. Boehner says he’ll defund it, whatever it takes and that’s what I want to hear.

This was the turning point for many Americans, where they finally got involved and decided to fight back against politician’s who completely ignored the wishes of the American people.

I don’t live in DE so I guess my opinion doesn’t matter much but a lukewarm, “we’ll get to it when it’s more realistic,” wouldn’t do for me.

How about saying “I will DEFUND Obamacare if he vetoes a repeal bill”.
