FOX reporting that bitter butt hurt republicans were not unified behind ODonnell.

Democrats were solidly behind Coons, independents had a 3 point difference between the 2 candidates.

If this race is close, it’s on the establishment.

RINOs held up the money. That race was all about Palin. They wanted to check her power surge.

Coons was called with 0% in. Exit polling isn’t actual votes.

Anyone remember Dan Rather?

Let’s wait for some actual votes

Oh good grief. We never HAD Delaware, Sherlock. And even had Castle been the nominee and won, he already said he had no intention of helping repeal Deathcare.

Castle would have done ONE thing that would have made a MAJOR difference nation wide: he would have caucused with the GOP and, thus, probably made the difference in who controls the Senate. I didn't like him, didn't agree with him on many issues, but he nevertheless would have caucused the right way and brought control of the Senate to the GOP. Now, because of this loss, the Dems will maintain the Senate, Obama will be able to appoint more Judges to the Federal Bench, and we can't stop 'em. Our liberties will continue to be eroded in the courts and more un-born babies will die.

Don't misunderstand. I wanted O'Donnell to win both in the Primary and then in the general election. But I don't see ANYTHING good in Coons winning.

People keep missing the big picture. With a majority you now have Committee chairs and you can determine what does, or does not, get out of committee to the floor.

I would much rather have a Castle and a Tarkanian than a Coons and a Reid.

RINOs could be given a small voice in the Party.... could even be ignored....but their number would speak loudly.

Exactly. The Senate was always a stretch goal that only came on in the last couple of months. O’Donnell, McMahon, Raese, Fiorina and Angle were always long shots. Toomey and Kirk should be wins though based on more than recent hype. They lose and the night will be a bit hollow.

Worse than that, they helped keep the Gucci Loafer crowd on K-Street going. We wanted to send Christine and so many more to nix these B@$ard$ to only have Rove and Kruthammer help keep this system and power structure alive.

They don't get it, they are poltical history and they don't know it yet. Their inboxes will be flooded, and we won't watch them, just like many of us turned off Noonan and Parker.

Those two men, and I like Krauthammer, didn’t like Angle, Miller, O’Donnell, Rubio or Paul. Paul and Rubio won because they are in independent thinking states. Miller and Angle may still win too. What this election showed me is how low establishment Republicans are. If Rubio or Paul would have even been remotely weak, guys like Rove would have destroyed them, like they tried to do to O’Donnell before she even got going. They didn’t have to enthusiastically endorse her but they went out of their way to bring down the Republican support for her. Low budget

I'll wait for the vote counts.

Same here and in the meantime, Delaware is in my prayers for an O'Donnell victory and the election of a Christian Constitutional Conservative to the senate.

If that reprehensible Marxist Coons wins, my prayers will go out for the people of Delaware. They'll need the Good Lord to protect them from that vile man.

Or Rove made it happen. I think he should have kept his mouth shut.

Rove's comments were a double-edged sword. I'd point out that in saying what he did he not only solidified and focused support for O'Donnell, he also spurred a fundraising drive that gave her a much larger warchest than she would have had otherwise. I think it's open to debate whether he hurt her, or helped her and people are going to be discussing the matter long and far into "beating a dead horse" scenario.

Don’t blame Rove, that’s silly. Blame the majority of socialists in Delaware that voted for Coons.

Rove gets his share of the blame. He threw a hissy fit when the voters didn't vote as he thought they should, acting like a spoiled brat. Then he trashed O'Donnell like a Dim would trash a Republican opponent.

Rove is a political operative and shouldn't be on Fox pretending to be some sort of objective analyst or commentator. He's far too emotionally involved in far to many races.

Rove was talking about a game that we are no longer playing. The Republicans stuck with the deal of running Leftwingtards in tough districts entirely too long.

Because of that we were not able to get filibuster proof Senates when we were in control, and on votes Republican legislative agendas were simply ignored.

We have a 6 year push going to put Conservative senators in place ~ PERIOD.

Rove may well catch on but so far he's pretty much acted as if he's deep in the throes of Alzheimers and is unable to think ahead a week or two.

I agree. And if it really is 49/46 then they came close to failing, didn't they? They had to declare victory WITHOUT showing the numbers in order to falsely gloat for a few minutes before the truth sunk in.

Well, we killed off a few RINOs this time around, including Castle, and now we'll have to kill off a few more, won't we?

I agree with you. I have never detected that Rove wanted O'Donnell to lose. As a matter of fact, I think he wanted her to win but there is no right or wrong to selecting O'Donnell as the candidate.

If it were certain she would lose, then it was the wrong thing to choose her as a candidate but no one knew that and she was far preferable to Castle as a senator. Unfortunately, there is a difference between being a candidate and being an elected lawmaker.

What's done is done but it's time to stop blaming Rove. Delware is a liberal state. Blame the voters.

The wave was too big and hopefully others will join the Tea Party winners in 2012.

From my vantage seat, I never expected the repugnants to take the senate...so no surprise for me that we lose some of the ones we wanted real bad, like O'Donnell in DE, or Raese in WV or even Angle in NV...though I hope, by God, she wins there. But, IMHO, this is only a stepping stone to 2012...there will be many more dems to be slain...and we'll get there...Again, this is only the first battle in a major, MAJOR frickin' war!

I don’t understand that thinking. Having Castle as a win in the Senate would be like if Ted Kennedy had changed his affiliation to Republican and still voted as a socialist. It’s not about having the most “R”s; it’s about having the most conservatives/patriots. If Castle had won the primary and won tonight the GOP would have won the ILLUSION of having won the Senate...and nothing more.

The GOP would have won control of the Senate, hence the power to select who chairs the various committees, including (most especially) Judiciary. Yes, Castle would have been the poster child of all RINOs, but his caucusing with the GOP would have ensured that Senate Chairmanships would have been in the hands of the GOP, control of the agenda would have been in the hands of the GOP, and nonsense like nuclear options to overcome Fillerbustering would be put to rest.

In short, as sick as it makes me to admit it, a RINO like Castle would have had a use in a tight Senate where control of the Senate teeters on a one or two Senator margin.

It was stupid to primary Castle. Utah, Alaska, Arizona, go for it, even with a lousy candidate. If in a Blue State, go for if the insurgent candidate is attractive. But Blue State, weak candidate? That is just idiocy.

Rove definitely did the enemies' work for them that night O'Donnell won the primary. He's still trying to push the same scenario for the Republican party as he did during Bush's second term: RINOs and amnesty and reaching across the aisle.

Is this really a surprise to anyone?

Well, to many who aren't very familiar with Delaware, yes. And I had hoped for a miracle win. But...

9% of NCC reporting.

Chris Coons          65%     7,877
Christine O'Donnell  32%     3,886

She'll catch up a lot through the night, but pull it out? Nope. :-(


Instead of running for the Senate all the time, wouldn't it be neat if she actually gained some experience and demonstrated success at something local or state first?
