Moderation is a result, not a starting point.

    Recent news accounts of a closed-door Senate meeting/luncheon mention “moderate” Republicans like Scott Brown of MA wondering aloud if there was still room for “moderates” in the Republican party. In a word, Senator, No. That is if you define a moderate as someone who, to steal Peggy Noonan’s analogy from today’s WSJ Online, starts negotiating from the 18-inch mark on the 36-inch Yardstick.

    If You’re NOT the Solution, You ARE the Problem

    So, Christine won in Delaware. That is really good news to me, as Mr. Castle was, based on his voting record, not just a RINO, but an absolute Liberal. Then we hear news like: From:http://politics.blogs.foxnews.com/2010/09/15/senate-minority-leader-mcconnell-supports-odonnell An NRSC official made clear Tuesday night that it has no plans to assist the Tea Party Express-backed O’Donnell financially. That is just dandy. So the Bozo’s at the NRSC | Read More »

    Flawed Long-shots vs. The Enemy Within

    Well, it’s the primary election day in Delaware and all that can be said has been I suppose. Regardless, I will go ahead an throw my two cents in for the record. This has probably been one of the most frustrating primaries this campaign season, for all of us. Whether it was O’Donnell surrogates refusing to accept reality regarding Castle’s vote to “Impeach Bush” – | Read More »

    Mike Castle open to endorsing Christine O’Donnell

    I was reading one of the many, many articles about the Delaware GOP Senate Primary, this one from Politico, and this particular article featured an interview with Mike Castle.   The real scoop of the story was buried near the end of the article, the reporter asked Mike Castle if he would support Christine O’Donnell if she wins the Primary.  This is his answer “That’s very hypothetical, | Read More »

    Castle vs. O’Donnell: A Mythical Debate

    Who should a Republican vote for—Mike Castle or Christine O’Donnell?  By now, the arguments on both sides are as tired as a death-penalty debate in a freshman English class.  So I’ll cut to the chase.  Who should Republicans vote for?  O’Donnell.  Republicans should vote O’Donnell.  It isn’t even debatable. All you have to do is look at the best-case scenario of a Castle win and | Read More »

    Mike Castle Ain’t Backbone

    “For those who think getting a Republican majority back in the Senate is the solution to our problems, you miss the naked reality that we had a sizable majority and it was liberal[s] … like Castle, and the supposed conservatives who empowered them, who drove the Party and the nation into a ditch, handing the reins to nutjob leftists in the process.” Much has been | Read More »

    This is our chance!

    I’ve been seeing a lot of scared comments by RINOs lately, scared that they’re going to lose the seat they thought they were going to win in Delaware, just like they did in Alaska.  Its easy to see from their perspective, just look at it their way for a second, a RINO is always better than a Conservative, a RINO is more likely to win | Read More »

    For Delaware Republicans it is Now “A Time for Choosing”

    The fast approaching date for the Delaware Republican primary is Tuesday September, 14th. The choice before the voters could not be more stark. Nor could it be more momentous. On this day, the choice of a senate nominee will be made between a dynamic, young committed conservative and a cynical old liberal career politician. This little noticed primary has implications far beyond the borders of | Read More »

    What Would Mike Castle Really Do?

    A recent post written by Eric Erickson on RedState has caused quite a stir. In his post Eric contends that, if elected senator in a special election in Delaware this November, forty year RINO Mike Castle would switch parties, resign, and allow Beau Biden, the current Delaware A.G. and son of Vice President Joe Biden, to be appointed senator. Even discounting the fact that a | Read More »

    Clear Contrasts for Conservatives

    In August and September there are several critical Republican Senate primaries pitting ObamaCare fighters against ObamaCare appeasers.  Most significantly are the matchups between Senator Murkowski vs. Joe Miller in Alaska, Rep.  Jerry Moran vs. Rep. Todd Tiahrt in Kansas, and Rep. Mike Castle vs. Christine O’Donnell in Delaware.  All three present conservatives clear contrasts where our activism can make all the difference. In the Kansas | Read More »

    It is a Trend Toward ABC in DE

    More and more people in Delaware are beginning say “Anybody But Castle.” However, this is actually a positive development for Republicans. Mike Castle, you will remember, is a forty-year career far Left liberal Republican member of congress. He voted for Cap and Trade, TARP, the auto and banking industry takeovers. More recently he co sponsored the infamous “Disclose Act” designed to muzzle the first amendment | Read More »

    The Conservative Roster for a Senate Takeover

    There has been a lot of inner-party turmoil over whether republicans should try to elect the  most conservative candidate or the candidate that is the most electable. I say why can’t we have our cake and eat it too. Here is my roster of the most viable conservative candidates running for Senate. Remember we need 10 seats to take over the Senate because Vice President | Read More »

    Step Up To The Plate in 2010: Delaware Edition

    This is my first in what I hope to be a regular series of diaries entitled Step Up To The Plate in 2010 Today, Christine O’Donnell announced that she would run for Joe Biden’s vacant seat in Delaware.  O’Donnell made a brave run in 2008 against Joe Biden, likely knowing full well she could never win in the political environment that existed in 2008, but | Read More »
