Tom Ross capped off 10 minutes of trying to build bridges with conservatives by blowing himself up and angering conservatives, with these renewed attacks on Christine O'Donnell.

I thought this clown was going to be removed from office after his disastrous handling of last years elections.

And where is that sleazeball Mike Castle? What a jerk.

That was somewhat less than illuminating. What are we supposed to be seeing here?

Tom Ross was being taken to task by Sussex County Republicans over the way he badmouthed Christine O’Donnell who he should have been supporting. He insulted the people he was trying to make nice with and then ran away from them.

The election’s over, but the consequences are not. The state GOP is now facing the music over its behavior with respect to O’Donnell and Boss Ross ain’t liking it.

The Delaware teaparty needs to find a way to remove Ross from his position and replace him with one of their own.

got to love Tom’s direct honesty.

someone asked “why did you say she couldn’t be elected dog catcher?”

He tells them, “Because it’s true”

They didn’t need Tom as a speaker, they needed a math tutor.

I was at this meeting last night, as was Moseley I suspect.

It was great. Sussex county took back our party. It’s been a long road. They’ve used degradation and mockery against us but through a lot of effort and volunteers, we took over OUR political party and turned a tide.

I got it all on tape.

I am proud today.

Yes, that’s an excellent article.

I, heh, got an actual interview with Mr. Ross my own Blogger self!

Yes I did.

What happened he was being interviewed by a local TV station....oh yeah, a messenger was sent inside to tell Ross that WBOC wanted him for an interview. I chanced to be passing by at the finish of this interview with asshole Ross preening in front of the camera his handsome self.

I got much of the meeting on video my own self so I had the camera with me. Real quick I ran after Ross, yelling...”Mr. Ross...how about a common Blogger, can you give a common Blogger an interview?”

To my surprise, he turned and smile so I turned on my video and asked him some questions. I was very polite as...well I dunno, I was so surprised but I didn’t lose it.

I asked him how much he enjoyed his visit to Sussex county, knowing that half of the meeting attendees walked out on him. He smiled, oh what a pro, and said he truly regretted that he couldn’t visit Sussex with a victory in this past November to report. Which was a slam against Christine O’Donnell’s candidacy, clever how he spun that.

So my head’s spinning cause dag, here I am, common Blogger, got this exclusive interview with Tom Ross deep in enemy territory of Sussex county.

I suddenly remembered that the Wilmington News Urinal had reported that Tom was stepping down as Del. GOP chair (which he damn well should) so I asked if this was true.

“I’m thinking about it,” he said...then something about being with family or something.

Anyway, I’ll be putting it up on my Facebook and Blog. gotta upload the video and all that but I am quite full of myself today.

Ah yes, Frank Knotts. Heh.

Best place to get all the scoop on this is at Delawarepolitics.net. I even told my tale of the Ross interview. Soon enough I’ll write up my story, with the videos, pics and Tom Ross interview.

It was great, really great. Whatta story, I relish just thinking about writing it all down.

Is there a consensus that Mike Castle would have won the general election had he not lost to O'Connell?

Wrong - exit polls show he would have lost to Coons, also. People in Delaware like being out of work, they love to see the GM plant , the Chrysler plant, the Valero refinery, etc. all boarded up. They love having their homes foreclosed. They enjoy paying high taxes. In short, they are enamored of their life as serfs for Duke Biden.

BTW, Casrle lost to Christine O’DONNELL, not O’CONNELL.

>>As the conservative faithful exited, Paula Manalakos, wife of Delaware State Representative Nick Manalakos was over heard stating “there go the Christians”. Paula Manalakos ironically works for the Delaware State Republican Committee, and her comment is telling of the disdain for conservatives within the Delaware Republican Party.<<

That’s my state rep and his wife. That’s not the first time that she’s gone over the deep end. She started screaming at me after the primary. He’s little more than a used car salesman-type politician. I’m getting me a sign “I’m a Christian.”

Maybe I should have said I am MORE full of myself today than before.

Below is a link to my Photobucket page with all of the videos now uploaded from last night’s GOP meeting, INCLUDING my interview with Tom Ross. The videos’ descriptions should make it simple to ascertain what’s on the video. It is a public page so should be accessible.

I was soliciting the response you gave me. Everyone is blasting the Republican Party for not supporting O’Connell as if the party’s choice would have won. He would not have. That was my point! The party is way out into left field.

O’Donnell NOT O’Connell.

It is abubdantly clear that the DE GOP is: a) infrsted with RIBOs; b) cares more for their own “power” than electing candidates; and c)dead, dead, dead. If they think that 2010 was an aberation, wayt until 2012. The long knives are out for Governor Palin. The RINOs want Mitt Romney.

Just wait until they ask Conservatives to hold their noses for “the good of the party”. SARAH PALIN 2012!

Ross has been an embarrassment for years, from when the RINO’s up in New Castle first brought him in to “lead”. He’s a stunning example of all that is wrong with the GOP nationwide.

short answer, Yes - Castle would have beat Coons.

semi long version...

When Junior Joe Biden finally announced he was not running for the Senate seat, the Dems scrambled to find a candidate. Chris Coons agreed to be the sacrificial lamb to loose against Castle in ‘10 and then run for Carper’s senate seat in ‘12 or Castle’s seat in ‘14 when he would probably retire.

After O’Donnell beat Castle in the primary, the DNC poured money and volunteers into the state to drive turnout. They would have ignored DE if Castle was on the ticket polling ten points ahead.

This turnout effort not only crushed O’Donnell but swept away Republicans down-ticket.

as foor Republican party support, The Party sent out 6 statewide mailers for O’Donnell. What did the rest of the ticket get?
Urqhart for congres - zero
Boninni for state treasurer - zero
Wagner for Auditor (the last state wide R inucumbant) zero

O’Donnell sucked up all the state party money and still claimed they weren’t supporting her. Why? because it fit with her “outsider” image and because everytime she complained the party was against her, freepers sent her more money.

Tom Ross should resign for wasting money on the weakest candidate (with the most money) and ignoring the rest of the ticket.
