We used to fly the same flight to DC for years, before he moved his family to DC.
He was a very sincere, honest, young congresscritter with real values.
Unfortunately, young Rick, the honest congresscritter, has lived too long in DC and has too much political dogshit on his shoes.
I think that the old saying, that laying down with dogs will earn you fleas, is too true.
I don't say he is corrupt, but he has certainly become more of a DC "Lifer" than a young man with principles.
Ricki Santorum is a wimpish Loser! Don’t ever consider him for a national office,EVER!
I believe those two... especially O'Donnell, kept the glare of media off Rand Paul, giving him some needed breathing room so he could steady his campaign against Conway. COD had better be on Rand's Christmas gift list.
So was the "I am you!" ad.
Who wrote her stuff?
We have to remember, though, it was 2006 -- a "wave" election -- that carried a lot of weight toward his loss. We lost a high number of GOPers that year. Plus.. Bob Casey disguised himself as a pro-life "moderate," giving PA voters an illusory alternative to Santorum.
True. But I remember a lot of Freepers back before that election were saying that they refused to vote for Rick. And I was saying that Bob Casey was not his father’s son when it came to abortion, that he was lying on several issues, so they should hold their noses and vote for Rick. But they didn’t.
He made a big mistake agreeing to endorse Specter. But his voting record was good as long as he was in the Senate.
YOu would have liked it better if he had said she had no chance of winning? No, he said exactly what people say when they are trying their best NOT to be fingered as someone who is hurting a candidate’s chances.
She was NOT a good candidate. She proved it. She may be a great person, but she has not been, and was not, and probably will never be, a good candidate for Deleware.
But she will enjoy playing with the almost $1 million she still has in the bank after her campaign ended.
If McCain turned against republicans in 4 years, and became a democrat, I doubt anybody here would hold it against Sarah Palin, so I don’t know why they don’t understand what you explained about Rick Santorum.
I don’t think he’s the best conservative in the world, but he seemed a good enough guy not to be dumped on by conservatives like he is.
Sharon Angle WAS electable, she simply made too many mistakes against a well-oiled democratic machine. Appealing to hispanic voters by telling them they look asian was probably just the last straw.
O’Donnell never had a chance, both because of her lack of any experience at all, and her inability to stand up to scrutiny, defend herself, and articulate a message. Which was wierd because she was a great speaker, she just didn’t speak the message.
When your first words to introduce yourself to the general election audience is “I am not a witch”, you have already lost the race. (I know, Nixon managed to come back after his “I am not a crook” speech, but that wasn’t a campaign advertisement, and it took a while).
But she never had a chance. She was 16 points down before she stepped out of the gate, and then she decided to hang around in the gate for 3 weeks, collecting millions and cementing “Senator Coons” in the voter’s minds.
stupid is as stupid does.
Santorum must want the RINO insider support.
“Gosh you guys. Maybe he is disappointed in the way she ran the campaign. He supported her when it counted and now thinks she either could have done better or ran a poor campaign. I dont see why this is news or that he should be bashed...”
I agree with you entirely. Personally I thought O’Donnell was an inadequate candidate who had no chance of winning, but once she won the nomination you shut up, be a good team player, and get behind her and support her like Santorum did, no matter what you think, not throw stones like Rove or Krauthammer.
We’d be better off with half a conservative than no conservative at all. Castle was a lock to win, and had a 54% rating from American Conservative Union. Coons is 0% conservative with 100% chance of beating O’Donnell; O’Donnell is a 100% conservative with 0% chance of beating Coons. Either way it works out to Zero.
O’Donnell should have run for mayor of something and built at least a minimal record of achievement, not going straight from Kindergarten to the Major Leagues. Then go after the Senate slot when Castle retired.
I don’t know who wrote her stuff. Worse yet, he/she got paid partially with money I sent to O’Donnell campaign :-(
Cheer up. Maybe O’Donnell’s advertising person does not have your money.
It was announced yesterday that she is still sitting on a million dollars of campaign donations.
Do you know if they are going to pursue charges against her or drop them since she lost?
Whether a candidate has won or lost will have nothing to do with whether charges are pursued.
Charges will not be pursued because they are totally frivolous and without any merit.
