Christine O’Donnell (R) Hammers the Bearded Marxist Coons (D) … “I Would Argue That More People Would Support My Catholic Faith Than His Marxist Beliefs”
2010 DELEWARE US SENATE ELECTION: Christine O’Donnell (R) vs. Chris Coons (D)
During last nights Delaware US Senate debate, Republican candidate Christine O’Donnell nailed the self proclaimed “bearded Marxist,” Democrat Chris Coons.
“I would argue that more people would support my Catholic beliefs than his Marxist beliefs.”
Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit
Chris Coons tried to pass off the “bearded Marxist” reference as a joke. Really, it was a joke, does not seem to be? O’Donnell in turn during the debate called Coons a Marxist. Well if the shoe fits candidate Coons. What a shock, another Democrat running against what they really believe and stand for as the liberal MSM allows them to without question. Coons called himself a capitalist during the debate. We might want to have him define the word.
A feisty, aggressive Ms. O’Donnell called Mr. Coons a Marxist whose beliefs came from a socialist professor and said he would “rubber stamp” the policies of the Democrats in Washington. Mr. Coons raised questions about whether Ms. O’Donnell’s faith would drive her positions on social issues like abortion, prayer and evolution.
Pressed by CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer, Ms. O’Donnell refused to say whether she believed evolution was a myth, saying that “what I believe is irrelevant.” As she did throughout the first half of the debate, Ms. O’Donnell quickly tried to return the focus to Mr. Coons, saying, “I would argue there are more people who support my Catholic faith than his Marxist belief.”
If you watched the debate you could clearly see the media bias and that the moderators were in the tank for the Marxist Coons. One of the best comments of the evening was when O’Donnell showed the MSM bias and double standard when she stated that her comments made in the past on a comedy show, yet Coon’s comments of studying under a Marxist made him become a DDemocrat. So Coons’ comments are a joke, yet what a candidate said on a comedy show is not the same? Hmm?
What a sad commentary, as O’Donnell trails in the polls, that Delaware would vote into the US Senate an Obama rubber stamp and a lap dog for Harry Reid. Then again, you get exactly what you vote for. Too bad that Harry Reid will not be there after the midterm election.
Delaware US Senate Election: Castle Says No To Write In Campaign Against O’Donnell (R) and Coons (D)
Castle says no to write in campaign and endorsement …
Republican primary loser Mike Castle says he will not be the next sore loser Republican establishment Lisa Murkowski; however, he still cannot find the class to endorse Christine O’Donnell, the winner of the GOP US Senate primary in Delaware, as he had stated he would during the campaign. Mike Castle stated that he will say no to a “write-in” campaign for the US Senate in Delaware.
Longtime Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del.) announced late Wednesday that he will not launch a write-in bid for Senate this fall, ceding the stage to Tea Party favorite Christine O’Donnell (R) and New Castle County Executive Chris Coons (D).
Castle said he was “humbled” by the support and encouragement he has received since his primary loss to O’Donnell, but after giving a write-in bid careful consideration, he decided against it.
Castle just says no to endorsing the winner of the Republican primary. What an honorable republican that the GOP could have counted on with a necessary and needed vote against Democrats.
Christine O’Donnell a Witch Hardly, “There’s been no witchcraft since. If there was, Karl Rove would be a supporter now”
In an age where witches and vampires have been glorified and considered sexy, we now take the words of a girl who was in high school in that Christine O’Donnell “dabbled in witchcraft”as a reason why some one should not be a US Senator? ARE YOU JOKING?
A note to all goths in high school, you can never run for political office. Any one who ever watched “Bewitched“, “Tabitha“, “Sarina, the Teenage Witch“, “Charmed“, the “Twilight Trilogies” or “True Blood” … you have all been excluded from political office.
Because we had such an issue with Elizabeth Montgomery as a witch
I remember everyone complaining about Lisa Hartman as Tabitha eve though the show did not last
Christine O’Donnell fired back over the weekend regarding her “1999 dabbled in witchcraft” comment and made light of it by stating the following, ” How many of you didn’t hang out with questionable folks in high school?” However, the line of the speech at the picnic in Delaware over the weekend was that there has been no witchcraft since … ”There’s been no witchcraft since. If there was, Karl Rove would be a supporter now.” Brilliant!
Did Karl Rove have an issue with “Charmed”
Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell is making light of comments she made more than a decade ago when she was in high school about having dabbled in witchcraft.
“How many of you didn’t hang out with questionable folks in high school?” she asked fellow Republicans at a GOP picnic in southern Delaware on Sunday.
“There’s been no witchcraft since. If there was, Karl Rove would be a supporter now,” O’Donnell jokingly assured the crowd.
Karl Rove has stated that Christine O’Donnell needs to explain her witchcraft comments. Are you serious Mr. Rove? Maybe you need to explain every stupid thing you did in your high school and college years. The only thing she needs to explain to me is why she went on a asinine show like Maher’s “Politically Incorrect“. Just curious, how many of you on the LEFT played the Beatles #9 backwards on your record player or Pink Floyd’s The Wall? Hmm?
Hot Air has a message to the pundits and the bloggers in the RIGHT. They should take notice and read. Would you rather be proved right or dealing with a far left controlled Senate? The choice is yours.
The RIGHT is going to play into a LEFT-wing hack like Bill Maher is promises to show videos of Christine O’Donnell every day until she comes on his show? This is what kind of liberal bias media you are going to aid? Seriously folks, it is time to grow up and stop the holier than thou attitude. None of us could run for office if videos or pictures from high school would surface as you would have to use to context and time that they were done in.
As Christine O’Donnell stated this weekend, if she was still a witch then not only would Karl Rove be a supporter, Bill Maher would also be turned into the toad that he truly is.
This election is not about what some one did in 1999 in high school, its about taking your country back and having some one you can trust to vote against spending and higher taxes. GROW UP!
Obama Job Recovery: $111 Million in Stimulus under American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Creates 55 Jobs in Los Angeles
Is it any wonder why the Tea Party is an overwhelmingsuccess … Democrats would have you believe it is extreme to be against Government wasteful spending.
The Obama Administration likes to tout the $787 billion stimulus plan as a success and job creator, really? Does any one think that spending $2 million per job is a success? That is correct, $2,000,000 per job. After receiving $111 million in Obama’s federal stimulus funds, the city of Los Angeles, CA created a whopping 55 jobs.
The city received $111 million in stimulus under American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) approved by the Congress more than year ago.
“I’m disappointed that we’ve only created or retained 55 jobs after receiving $111 million,” says Wendy Greuel, the city’s controller, while releasing an audit report.
“With our local unemployment rate over 12% we need to do a better job cutting red tape and putting Angelenos back to work,” she added.
According to the report, the Los Angeles Department of Public Works generated only 45.46 jobs (the fraction of a job created or retained correlates to the number of actual hours of work) after receiving $70.65 million, while the target was 238 jobs.
Not so fast …remember when the Connecticut US Senate race was solid Democrat and a sure Donkey win, not any more. Just a perfect example why there is no such thing as a republican cannot win in any state, including Christine O’Donnell in Delaware.
As the MSM and elitist establishment types are obsessed with the idea that a commoner and Tea Party backed candidate like Christine O’Donnell have the audacity to win the Republican primary in Delaware and take on liberal Democrat and Harry Reid’s pet Chris Cooms … a funny thing is happening in the Connecticut US Senate race, its now a toss up.
Before Democrats are so quick to call the Delaware US Senate race a victory, they might just want to check out what is happening in Connecticut. Blumenthal once had a 41% lead in the Quinnipiac poll, it is now only 6%. So much for a sure thing, eh?
Flying under the political radar, the once overwhelming lead for Democrat candidate Richard Blumenthal and a solid Democrat lock has now dwindled to single digits in some polls over republican contender Linda McMahon. Charlie Cook of the Cook Report is ready to make this race a toss up.
The contest between Democratic Attorney General Richard Blumenthal and former World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Linda McMahon has been gradually closing over the past few months, and is now in single digits, according to some polls.
A Quinnipiac University poll (September 8-12 of 875 likely voters) gave Blumenthal a six-point lead over McMahon, 51 percent to 45 percent. They were statistically tied among independents, with Blumenthal taking 47 percent to 46 percent for McMahon, and among men where McMahon had a one-point advantage, 48 percent to 47 percent. Blumenthal enjoyed a 56-percent to 41-percent lead among women voters. Blumenthal’s job ratings were 70-percent approve to 26-percent disapprove. As impressive as these numbers are, his ratings in January were 84-percent approve to 11-percent disapprove. Blumenthal’s favorable/unfavorable ratings were 55 percent to 39 percent while McMahon’s were 45 percent to 41 percent. This poll looks a lot different than a January Quinnipiac survey that gave Blumenthal a 41-percent advantage over McMahon, 64 percent to 23 percent.
