Although I am a fiscal conservative, I must say it is unfortunate that O'Donnell won this primary. She is strikingly similar to Sarah Palin, which has no place in this day and age. These are the people who want to align the U.S. government with the Bible. The U.S. was not founded under Christianity in any way whatsoever. It's sad that many Americans don't realize this truth.

Keep your FL Republican issues in FL please. The DE Republican party is financially sound and not wrought with fraud and mismanagement like the FL Republican party is. In Delaware we know what a fiscal conservative really looks like thank you.

If you had done your homework you'd have known Castle votes more conservatively than Nelson does on financial issues. Castles conservative ratings drop on the social side.

Your are entitled to your opinion; what I call you out on is a total disregard for fact. Elect Rubio if you wish and we will elect the person best suited to reflect the wishes of our residents. If you can't value that democratic principle then you have not business near the Constitution of the country I love.

I wonder how much like Queen Sarah she really is. I wonder, if elected, if she'll abandon her post to pander full-time like Queen Sarah has done.

Thanks Jdoll, for setting Fawkes straight. A floridian has no business telling us who is right for us especially when he does not know how to differentiate Castle from O'Donnell. Although Castle is a moderate he is not gutsy enough to shake off party-line votes.

TBT: Castle was a shoo-in as far as the Republicans were concerned (and many stayed home) until TEA party people took up O'Donnell cause and all the angry people got off their duff to come vote for the Palin-clone.

(hope you don't mind that I corrected your typo's)

A few of my HS friends from Milford posted on their FB walls the day after the election that they were ashamed to be a Delawarean that day. I've got to say that I didn't follow this election very closely since I live in PA but was there low voter turn-out? Did most people just assume that it was going to be a slam-dunk for Castle?
Being liberal is a bad thing, maybe not Democrat per say. I have a lot of family that are Dems, but are not at all happy with they way things are going. While others have gone independant. So I guess I should say IMO liberal far left is bad!
Not that being Republican automatically makes one good. Look at Castle. Bad, bad, bad. That is why people have had it and are picking the Tea Party.

I am MORE than surprised by the results and in the long run I can only hope, this will be a good thing for the democrats in november.

Christine O'Donnell even made it on the first page of our german online newspaper.

not sure, how the rules on this board are, when it comes to political subjects, but somehow I feel, this matter needs some attention.

ODonnell is about as ridiculous as Palin is. They both make the same poor talking points that avoid critical thinking of issues. She cried like a baby when Biden passed his seat on to Kaufman, trashing Biden.

I seriously believe that people who like these candidates (Palin, ODonnell,) have low intellect, and comprehension issues. People who like these candidates generally haven't heard the candidates talk, or, are actually impressed with these women's trigger words, bashing of democrats, and occasional use of big words to cover up the fact that they are avoiding the topic at hand, or do not understand the topic, or how to debate it.

Between Palin, ODonnell, and that Florida pastor, I am truly afraid of a large population of stupid, stupid, stupid Americans that occupy the rest of the country.

This country is NOT a game. It's real life, and it deserves the utmost intelligent, compassionate, and innovative leaders - not people who lie, don't pay bills, get caught in the lies, lie about their unpaid bills, and trick slower, older Americans by using large words and hot buttons.


Here ya go:

Spoken like a true hate bashing democrat!

You got nothing to argue about so you just spew hate & untruths, so typical!

THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN & their so tired of same old, same old politics!

Be careful what you wish for Reho. The "same old, same old" politics has kept our democracy afloat for nearly 300 years. Any radical changes, from the Left OR the Right, are to be avoided.

This country was never in danger of becoming communist, but it IS, in my opinion, in danger of someday becoming a theocracy. The potential of people like Palin, Angle, and O'Donnell to rise to positions of power in our government is truly frightening.

I just read through most of the reply's so far...interesting. Bush was "retarded" and O'Donnell is a "Tea Bagger". I wonder why the name calling and name changing is necessary. Think about it.

Thank you for demonstrating what I had described above.

Me: Critical thinking and analysis of topic at hand.

You: Call me a name, and reiterate (grammatically incorrect,) some kind of campaign slogan.
