You have to love the smug look on her face when she thought the audience at Weidener was laughing with her.

We all need to remember who she is going against. I am not saying she is great but in my opinion she is better than her opponent. I think it will be good to have a conservative in office.

Conservative Ronald Reagan doubled federal spending and increased the federal debt 200% (0.9 trillion to $2.8 trillion) and Bush 43 increased federal spending from 1.83 trillion to $3.58 trillion (adding almost double the amount of Obamacare!!), and increased the federal debt $5.9 trillion, while decreasing revenues 1/3 the last 18 months he was in office.

I don't like the 4.5% and 4.7% increase in government spending the 2 years under Obama, but face the facts. It is the 2 smallest annual increase in government spending we have had this millennium.

The conservatives of which you speak want to ban abortion, put their Christian prayer in every facet of my life and our children's education and restrict the rights they cherish so dearly from anyone that does not live, act or believe like them.

I did not like all the things he did, but Coons balanced the NCCo budget. O'Donnell can't balance her personal finances.

Until we start electing true FISCAL conservatives and stop electing SOCIAL conservative like McDonnell we will keeping getting what we have got. But a good fiscal conservative can't get out of the primary system these days.

Get educated folks if you want to take back your Federal Government because I have a 30 years history of a conservative wave that says your conservative vote with do nothing but continue what has happened since 1980. Lower taxes, drive up the federal debt and get that much closer to 3rd world status.

And you think Obama did all that in 20 months? I want a Fiscally Conservative Republican Party back and will vote for them when they are on the ticket. But until this wave of spending happy, socialist believing Social Conservative lose their grip on the the party I will continue to vote for the person mostly likely to bring Fiscal sanity to DC.

And O'Donnell is as Social driven as they come. If you wanted Fiscal sanity representing Delaware between the 3 big candidates Castle was the choice. But in this era of blame it all on Obama, he lost because he chose to vote twice with the President, because he thought it was Fiscally the right thing to do for America.

we also need to remember there were only about 50,000 total votes cast on the Republican side.

This was an editorial in today's Philadelphia Inquirer - Inquirer Editorial: O'Donnell logic flawed | Philadelphia Inquirer | 10/22/2010

Quote:
The kerfuffle over Christine O'Donnell's loose grasp of the First Amendment obscures a more disturbing point - she would allow "intelligent design" to be taught in public schools.

The Republican candidate for Senate in Delaware elicited guffaws in a debate with Democrat Chris Coons for seeming not to know that separation of church and state is set forth in the First Amendment to the Constitution.

But voters shouldn't get too carried away with a "throw the bums out" mind-set if the alternative is sending candidates like O'Donnell to the halls of power in Washington.

If we all cited the numerous news articles about Christine O'Donnell, this thread could out do (numerically) any other thread started here.These articles are everywhere, and redundant. It is interesting that most of the posts in this Christine O'Donnell Delaware thread, are by those not living in Delaware. (good for ramping up Delaware's post count, though)

That's probably because this is one of the races that has caught the nation's attention. Please notice that as I am not a Delaware citizen (yet) I've remained silent on this one.

I think this is actually a good opportunity to present pro Christine O'Donnell newspaper articles. A well educated voter is much better then a un-educated one. I don't know about anyone else, but I genuinely try to vote the person and not the party they represent but if I don't know the candidate, I will default vote to my traditional party. As Charley has said, this election has caught national attention. I am a seven day a week subscriber to the Philadelphia Inquirer so I saw the article I posted above. I don't subscribe to the News Journal and there could well be some pro O'Donnell there.

Assuming that Delawareans don't have access to newspapers, which is actually old news when it hits anyway, and assuming Delawareans aren't educated is a little much.
