UNDER PRESSURE: Coons Shifts on Tax Cuts for Wealthy: Extend Them All. Chris Coons changed his previous position on the Bush era tax cuts this morning telling me that he would support extending all of the Bush era tax cuts for everyone for several years.
UPDATE: Reader M.L. Johnson writes: If nothing else, ODonnell has pulled Coons to the right on this issue. Maybe any generic Tea Partier could have done the same. The weight of the electorate is tilting the playing field, just like its supposed to. I just hope it stays tilted.
And reader Chris Woods writes: Do you suppose that all the folks bellyaching about the ODonnell primary win can see it as something other than Quixotic now? Had the Tea Party gone along with the Republican establishment whichever candidate that won would have been a no vote for extending the Bush tax cuts. By standing in ODonnell for Castle the Democrat has been forced to flip. No such flip would have occurred with Castle as the opposition. Castle and Coons would more likely have found themselves in substantial agreement on the matter. As I see it the ODonnell candidacy even if it be doomed has had more policy import than Castles ever would have.
Plus, DaTechGuy wonders: If ODonnell is such a sure loser, why is Coons flip-flopping all of a sudden? The MSM has been making fun of Christine ODonnells debate performances for the last three days. Yet this morning, after Delaware voters saw those same debates that the MSM laughed at it is Chris Coons NOT Christine ODonnell who feels compelled to change positions. Its after voters saw the debates. Its also after Coons saw his tracking polls . . . .
ANOTHER UPDATE: Reader Dean Gay quotes Milton Friedman: Its nice to elect the right people, but that isnt the way you solve things. The way you solve things is by making it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right things. Heh. Indeed.
Ok, I have to ask because can’t find the answer... why is he the “bearded Marxist?” He’s clean shaven from the pics.
Surprised that the MSM isn`t flooding the airwaves with bogus polls showing her down 25 points etc, so what`s up??
