Eight Hall-of-Famers and a drunken quadriplegic from off the streets might make a team, but they’re not going to take the Series.
So you voted for a write-in candidate?
Karl Rove is a trus pos. I blame this sob for Obama getting elected from bush’s rhinoism. Screw all these rhinos. I will never give to the republican party again only to candidates.
You’re right, it doesn’t matter which one won. A Rino would have been no different than a Democrat, and having a majority means nothing if you still don’t have the votes to pass conservative legislation. I like that we’re sending the Rinos a strong message. We won’t elect your lying a$$es even if it means losing. It’s the best way to force conservatives to listen to us.
Christine needs to run ads showing ads of the pos Rove trashing her-that will probably get her dem votes and certainly independants. I really despise this guy for going after Christine.
Yeah. Those darn people with principles. They shouldn't even be allowed to vote in primaries.
If We the People allow the MSM to define conservatism and conservative candidates...they will lose. They will define our conservatism as a Jerry Falwell caricature.
If We the People get up, hit the streets with our conservative candidates, personally spread the Constitutional message and the freedom it provides, and explain fiscal and political conservatism to independents...it wins all the time every time.
this needed to be done...
its the beginning of the end hopefully, for two twisted parties...
If we're not big enough to lose, we're not big enough to win....
so lets be BIG!
Good luck in the general, Christine...you’re gonna need it.
While it does give me satisfaction to see that POS Castle defeated, he could have been our ticket to the majority.
“Senate Repub Committee says they will NOT SUPPORT HER.
I am changing parties to Independent. Senate repubs blow!”
Cornyn is next...fracking POS
Maybe we just take the whole Party down in a few years or start another Party.
Rove is right, politically. Ideologically, he’s wrong. There is a distinction.
the old has to step aside for the new...the old for the young...the status quo for the new horizons....
EVERYBODY GO TO FACEBOOK
SEARCH RNC AND ALL OTHER GOP GROUPS
AND THREATEN THAT YOU WILL LEAVE THE GOP IF THEY DONT SUPPORT GOP NOMINEES.
I will not be voting for any candidate that will sell me out. I will not be voting for Johnny Isakson in November because he sold me out on TARP. The Georgia GOP needs to learn the same lesson that Delaware is about to learn.
We have a great opportunity in 2012 to pick up a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. I am not willing to risk that by supporting candidates like Mike Castle that will join the Democrats in a filibuster the first chance he gets.
When good compromises with evil, it is only evil that can profit.
Why can;t you, and all the others carping on this, Castle was a DEMOCRAT with and r by his name, he voted 99 per with the dems! How does it help us putting this rino back into office when hes already proven he is against us anyway? Jeez, get over that already, damn.
DE is 20% black. They still vote in lockstep for Dems. Add that to the fuzzy DE Independents who are “uncomfortable” with any Republican not named Mike Castle or Pete DuPont, and there ya have it. Coons wins.
“I just wish the Republican party would die. The party is useless as far as Im concerned. All they do is stand in the way of good candidates.”
The Republican Party must either adapt/reform, or will die as a party. I’m not betting on the former.
yeah, the RNC just came out and said they will not give her one dime. Well, I have news for them, I will not give them ONE dime of my money now either. This will work in her favor, so many people beating up on her. I am off to go donate to her campaign right now, and I bet alot of other people are doing the exact same thing. It sure makes me want to resign my new position of PCP in my local repub party.............
We don’t need for it to die. We need to take it over. Tonight’s elections proves what we can do when we are determined. Now it is time to turn our attention to not only to November but also taking control of the RNC.
So Coon wins, so what? Is he worse then Castle on how he will vote? Have you seen Castle’s voting record?
think of screaming at the top of your lungs and nothing coming out...that is what being double crossed and disenfranchised feels like...which is what Castle would have done to us...
at least we know and hope we'll have some outspoken pubs in there to mix it up...
I just want a voice....
I just left a message with Cornyn’s Houston office and said that I was done with him and can’t wait for his next primary. I’d suggest all Texans to call his office and give him an earful since he’s the head of that band of misfits. Lower than a snake’s belly in a wagon rut!
“he could have been our ticket to the majority”
And what would the Republicans do with that kind of majority? Probably great conservative stuff like passing a Medicare drug benefit, amnesty, No Child Left Behind, campaign finance reform, Wall Street bailouts, and Cap-n-Trade? No thanks, we’ve been there and we are not going back. These takeovers cannot have the “conservative” label placed on them any more by capitulating, ruling class RINOs.
> “If this is in fact true, then the GP beltway crowd is going to be apopletic!”
I hope their aneurism ruptures!
The people are winning, Prayer Warriors, keep on praying!
Abraham Lincoln ran for the U.S. Senate from Illinois in 1858 and lost to a Democrat, Stephen Douglas. His prior political experience was a run for the Illinois General Assembly in 1832 (he finished 8th), again in 1834 (he won), and one term in the U.S. House (elected in 1846).
Once in Congress, Lincoln opposed the Mexican-American war, supported the idea expressed in the Constitution that the Constitution gives Congress the exclusive power to declare war, and that the people have the right to take arms against the federal government. With these views, he was a one-term Congressman.
Lincoln finally won in 1860, by convincing the Republican Eastern elite to support him, then giving no campaign speeches whatsoever. His supporters flooded the States with all manner of Republican media: editorials, pamphlets, word of mouth, and a biography that sold more than one million copies (an equivalent today would sell 10+ million).
We've got to make talk radio and Internet media as important as those controlled by the enemies of the people. I get 48-51 Senators this time, with best estimate 49. The best of that is that more Republican Senators will have backbone, looking ahead to 2012.
Paging Michael Steele!
i just went to the republican national Commisars Facebook page and the site is getting flooded with pissed of Republicans re: ODonnell.
Great post. It gave me a "wow" moment of clarity. You are totally correct. The O'Donnell's ARE the outsiders, and we need to help these candidates tack away from the RNC, RNSC, etc.
Castle is a POS. Long term I agree it’s better he lost.
What’s wrong though with me saying O’Donnell is going to need a LOT of luck to win in Nov? She IS - it’s a FACT.
If she wins, I’ll run naked in the streets, but don’t count on seeing my rear end just yet.
Way to go Christine!!
Way to go Tea Party!!
Way to go Tea Party Express!!
RINO season is open! No bag limit!!
Rebellion is brewing!!
What Claud said. Watch! ;-)
Praise the Lord for O’Donnell’s victory.
Thank you for answering my prayer.
> “Thus ended hopes for the Senate.”
You have to be joking.
This is the proof that we are going to win the whole oyster in November.
Sarah Palin has with this victory, taken the helm of the GOP away from the elitist sewage that has run the party into the ground (deliberately IMO).
Victory is all downhill from here. No more Trent Lott, Newt Gingrich, Dick Armey, and co.
I'm happy O'Donnell won. This is such slap in the fat faces of the liberals and totally discredited their biased predictions - and I sure like seeing that. ;-)
And will Castle “switch” indy, with the help of the Beltway, going two against one?
Never remember hearing much press conference protest from Rove and the gang, when the under-reported 09 Tea March on D.C. ....Finally figure out why GWB I and GWB II Mcain and the gang didn’t attend and speak during the 09 Tea march on D.C.?
Great advice, but Im not sure if Castle qualified as a conservative.
That's the rub here. I had the short course on Castle in the last few days. Supports cap and trade? Threatened impeachment of Bush? It's intolerable.
I understand the "weak can be made to follow" argument, but it seems Castle is so far off the reservation he's gone enemy camp.
Will O'Donnell be reliable?
“Maybe we just take the whole Party down in a few years or start another Party.”
Based on recent results, I believe we already started one.
Tom Pauken ran against Cornyn in the 1998 primary for attorney general and warned about him, but Republicans were too uninformed to listen. I don’t think they will be informed by 2014. Who will tell them?
You may be right. Those in this 20% crowd my be reluctant to turn out for a person named Coons. Should BO continue to leglislate the economy down the toilet those fuzzy independents just might have second thought.
Rove has ALWAYS been a RINO. Where have you been?
Rove is a part of the GOP machine; and he sees income from consulting or other position of importance within the GOP machine if they can sweep into power. It all boils down to money and power to the party boyz. He is disturbed that we are not taking their "trust me, I know what I am talking about" advice as gospel anymore.
O'Donnell has an uphill battle ahead; going against the east coast tendency to vote for the liberals as well as having her own party's "insiders" undermining her chances. She is going to need money, and even in my current paycheck-to-paycheck financial condition, I am going to tighten my belt just a little more so I can send her a generous donation.
Please go kick some liberal ass, Christine; dem and RINO alike.
We are taking this party back from the RINO slugs. It will be a glorious day when the conservatives once again rule the party.
> “While it does give me satisfaction to see that POS Castle defeated, he could have been our ticket to the majority.”
Not any kind of majority that we would’ve wanted.
Christine is our real ticket to a real majority.
I don’t know why you can’t see that the worm has turned, but it has and it looks more like an Anaconda.
granted, Brown and Christie might be better campaign candidates, but Christine might just be able to put it all together...
she has to run on the rats record....the deficets, the immigration...the taxes..the greed and criminality.....NASA....
