Why are the majority if people ignoring the fact that THERE ARE 0 PRECINCTS REPORTING? These calls are based on exit polls ( Polls. Remember the polls saying Angle was done? That Crist was making a comeback? Kerry wins? Gore wins? etc etc) I’m waiting for solid numbers and votes.

Steele was in Delaware with her and campaigned for her and was featured on some of ads/videos. It was the NRSC that didn’t make the effort above the $49,000 contribution to her campaign.

They were NOT correct. They attacked the GOP
winner for Obama and Romney. Shame on the backstabbers.

“Go Mitt. Go Mitt. Go Mitt.”


“Rove is pushing Romney so aggressively some folks are beginning to wonder what's going on,” grumbled one veteran Republican strategist.”


“Rove has made no secret of his support for Romney as McCain’s VP. ”

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.

Castle [R] was such a lock that Joe Biden's son decided not to even try contest to him for his Daddy's old seat.

That's what pissed off Rove.....they threw away a SURE thing.

After Arlen Specter, [...]

Speaking of Arlen Specter, I really hope that Pat Toomey survives the O'Donnell Effect! It wasn't just on the air that they used her to campaign in PA--they were talking about her door-to-door to get out the Dem votes. :-(

Let's say the Democrats take Delaware, but they LOSE Nevada, et al, and end up as the minority party in the Senate.

That effectively disenfranchises the people of Delaware. The LOOT will cease to flow.

First, the credit card companies that do business in Delaware ~ bust them down to T-bills plus 2% and really hurt them HARD.

Didn't Castle huddle up with 0 immediately after he lost the primary. People like Rove and Castle are the enemies of what we're trying to accomplish here. Some never learn even after failures like Specter and Jeffords. Rove stepped way over the line the night and next morning after the Castle loss. He's an incorrigible insider and needs to be thrown out with the rest of the cocktail party.

After Arlen Specter, I don't trust any RINO bastard.

You think he would have gotten himself elected as a Republican, then immediately changed parties or at least not caucused with the Republicans? I just couldn't see that.

Remember, in the vote on Obama Care not a single RINO in the Senate jumped ship. They surprised me. Sometimes they do the right thing.

If Castle was such a sure thing, why didn’t he win the friggin’ PRIMARY?

C.O. might have had a better chance if Tokyo Rove would have STFU instead of badmouthing the R candidate... he got all pissy because his R lost the primary.

Tokyo Rove is an ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICAN. And no friend to Conservatives.

Christine O’Donnell is a good idea—no, an excellent idea—to this very minute. Your problem is you haven’t listened to O’Donnell herself.

And if this lie that she lost turns out to be factual, I say O’Donnell should be among those headed for the White House.

I side with Rove on this; competent candidates matter. If elections were only about being right on a grocery list of issues, we could run me for office, or any of you.

Being competent and being right on the issues is our ideal case. But don’t delude ourselves into believing that good intentions translate into good results. That kind of identity politics, where we all get drunk on hopium, is for liberals.

He wouldn't have done that, and people who know him knew that rumor was just a Dem trick.

I am no big fan of his, but it's silly to think that this marxist is going to be better than Mike Castle--who voted with the Republicans more than half the time, even when it was against his (rather liberal) constituency.

Yes, and there is no one to blame here. You can't blame the Tea Party people for trying and you can't blame Rove for his POV, either.

It was a calculated move. Rove probably thought her chances of winning were slim. I have to admit I have not been impressed with her from what I've seen on TV but then I haven't seen the RAT at all.

It's amazing the debris people will vote for. But it's time to stop blaming Rove.

I'd like to see 'em too, but apparently the Exit Polls indicated that it was way beyond the margin wherein she had a chance. It'll be interesting to see where the final figures come out. IF it's a blow out for Coons, will know that the rumors from earlier today were all spin to get out the Dem vote.

Well, I guess I'm not surprised, but I'm also not happy to see Christine come up a bit short. She faced a lot of challenges, some of which were wholly unnecessary. On the night of her victorious primary night, she was tripped at the start of this general election race by people she assumed she could count on for support.

Win or lose, you did good, Christine!

You’re right—Delaware is a liberal state. Even with the wind at your back, a conservative would have to run a pretty much perfect race. The problem is no legit candidate thought they had a shot against Castle so all that enthusiasm was blindly bestowed on COD, a perennial gadfly who, though a nice gal at heart and right on the issues, was never qualified, vetted or prepared for a serious campaign. It’s a shame because we could have a shot if more people realized Castle was vulnerable early on.

The funny thing is, she never did answer the questions Karl Rove brought up.

And there's the matter of the FEC charges. In a way, I hope they don't go through with those now that she's lost; in a way, I hope they do...since I don't like election fraud, even if it's someone who claims to be a conservative.

Latest on-line results are making the call based on 6% of the vote, all in New Castle County. She probably has lost .... the 65-32% margin will probably tighten up, though.

The least Tokyo Rove could have done was do no harm. He did harm when he didn’t have to.

Rove is no friend of conservatives. He is for himself, and the establishment, in that order.

The problem with a RINO like Castle is that they can become more powerful in a tight Senate. While it would be great to see the Committees swing R, in the long view, having a Republican Senate with no will to advance a conservative agenda due to the the threat of somebody pulling a Jeffords or a small RINO group trying to assume the bipartisan broker mantle would be a disaster in 2012.

I’m mad at Clint Didier in my state for not endorsing Dino Rossi, and I’m mad at Karl Rove for sniping at O’Donnell. Once the candidate is chosen you don’t help the other side. I voted Didier and I was a fan of Rove. Never again.

Winning then being wrong on the issues does us no good whatsoever. We need both. That's why killing off RINOs is our first step then electing true conservative Constitutionalists is our next step.

I'll blame him for attacking the Republican candidate immediately following her primary win, and for quite some time thereafter. The Republican voters of Delaware had spoken. His fit of pique will cost him down the road. He's verging on anathema and deservedly so.

It’s not about having the most “R”s; it’s about having the most conservatives/patriots.

First, you need to get control of the committees and chairmanships - that's where the power in the Senate and House resides. Those positions get to decide WHICH bills even come up for vote, before any RINO or Democrat can vote for it.

You need the most Rs first, before your conservatives can do squat. Castle would have at least caucused with the GOP meaning DeMint and other deep conservatives would be heading those committees, rather than Democrats.

Having 49 strong conservatives in the Senate means nothing, if they cannot set the agenda.
