The third, actually...we mustn’t discount the War of 1812.
I’d like to think so, but the reality is that the American people (even the tea party people) are so beat down and brainwashed that we think it is totally normal to surrender our paychecks and a portion of sales to feed a slavedriving out of control oligarchy with absolute power...
Go where? She is not running anymore. I mean she is saying something that you agree with I presume. I wonder if she is gearing up for a Presidential run? That would be interesting.
I don’t think they are asleep. I think they are learning about how to do their job come January. I believe some probably thought it would be a cinch to work a new job, but as in every job there is a lot to learn and that is what they are doing right now. It will take the two years to get up to where their knowledge on DC workings are. If people thought that Tea Party candidates were going to rule 2011 they were mistaken. It will be 2013 when they folks are ready to lead. It is like any job. You don’t start off as CEO.
That would be
Invading Canada and being forced to disgorge doesn’t count as a ‘Revolution’.
Let’s stick with what O’Donnell said.
Having Washington burned, continued British impressment of American sailors, the attack on the Chesapeake, the naval victories at Lake Champlain, the stacking of bodies like cord wood of British invaders at the Battle of New Orleans (even though news of the end of the war due to British submission had not arrived in time to prevent the bloodbath and promotion of Old Hickory) should not be underestimated.
Speaking in Virginia, she should remember the American Revolution of the 1860s.
An interesting side note...after the Presidents residence was torched, the remaining limestone walls were utilized in the rebuilding and were painted white to hide the scorch marks...resulting in the name “White House”.
Abbie Hoffman described himself and his followers as the 2nd American revolution. Christine may want to re-think using such language.
Besides, you might really scare people with such talk. The liberals in the MSM do not allow conservatives to use such metaphors; they take everything a conservative says literally. So some columnist or talking head is going to say that Christine wants a violent revolution, and nobody in the MSM will call them on that.

Christine O'Donnell on Tuesday compared the "tragedy" of extending unemployment benefits to Pearl Harbor and the death of Elizabeth Edwards.
"Today marks a lot of tragedy," O'Donnell, the Tea Party-backed GOP Senate candidate from Delaware, said Tuesday night during an appearance in Virginia.
"Tragedy comes in threes," O'Donnell said. "Pearl Harbor, Elizabeth Edwards's passing and Barack Obama's announcement of extending the tax cuts, which is good, but also extending the unemployment benefits."
O'Donnell continued: "The reason I say this is a tragedy is because his announcement of economic recovery was more of a potpourri of sound bytes. It's like he took a little bit of what each party wanted and put it together. It's not a solid plan constructed on sound economic principles."

No conservative would believe THE HILL or other news media like CNN.
You are a liberal “seminar caller” infiltrator and we are laughing at you.
Listen to Christine in her own words:
“The reason I say this is a tragedy is because his announcement today for economic recovery is more of a potpourri of sound bytes. It’s like he took a little bit of what each party wanted and put it together. It’s not constructive, it’s not a solid plan constructed on sound economic principles.”
“He is taking piecemeal parts of the full plan — which you could say is cut squared — tax cuts and spending cuts. So it’s not going to work. He’s going to say, see I catered to the Republicans but it didn’t work. It didn’t work because your plan is a result of the spin-doctors’ chop shop. FRANKENOMICS if you will. You know, I mean Frankenstein, not Franken the comedian turned Senator, although both are applicable here.”
“But what Barack Obama is doing — by doing this piecemeal of potpouri of sound bites, instead of implementing a solid, well- thought out economic plan for recovery based on free-market principles — what he is doing is not only collapsing our nation economically but he’s weakening our collective character as a whole. He is weakening the collective character that defines us as a country, that defines us Americans.”
O’Donnell later explained further that Obama and the Congress needed to cut spending in order to pay for the extension of unemployment benefits:
“If we’re going to extend the jobless benefits we have got to cut spending programs and that’s the flaw in his announcement,” O’Donnell said. “That’s the tragedy.”
Christine O’Donnell earlier mourned the loss of Elizabeth Edwards:
QUOTE: Right before we got here, I don’t know if you heard it on the news, Elizabeth Edwards passed away. So if we could just remember that family in your prayers. She was a fine woman. And so just have to take an opportunity, just to remember to pray for that family as they are mourning her loss. UNQUOTE
