Another Rant by BettyJean Kling
Karl Rove and the Republican Party are doing to Christine O’Donnell a hack job similar to what the Democratic Party did to Hillary Clinton. Shorty after O’Donnell won in a landslide victory, the Republican establishment pulled their backing from her before she even gave her victory speech. She beat a 40 year incumbent male who besmirched this young woman disgracefully proving the voter is no longer going to allow the machine to dictate our votes not allow our female candidates to be politically raped.
In 2008, I watch the Democrats turn on their own and hang Hillary Clinton out to dry. The bigger her wins in state after state the faster the Super delegates abandoned her for the other side. On May 31, 2008, the Democratic Party committed suicide as we watched democracy turned on its head as the rules and by-laws committee played fast and loose with “The People’s Votes” in two states. In Denver, during the convention State delegates like California, who by law were sworn to give Hillary their votes simply did not vote so that Obama could have his Historical glory.
On September 14, 2010 the Republican Party likewise showed it’s hand. Two wings on the same vulture. It becomes very apparent; neither party gives a damned about what “We The People” want- why do we bother to have elections? A better question might be—or probably is – is why do we trust either of these two parties? They do not represent us and haven’t for a very long time. It is very evident, it is no longer about us- it is about party politics for the party bosses and maybe the good old boys and the girls who will play their game according to their rules. Look how they let the media come out after Sarah, I didn’t see them protect her once they saw her as a threat to the establishment!
So far, we have a new party coming on strong “The Tea Party”, perhaps that is enough to give us the choice we need. A party who will run candidates that we can vote for in spite of what Karl Rove wants. Rove was spewing vitriol against O’Donnell accusing her of saying nutty things. He used terms like “rectitude, truthfulness, sincerity, character”… ironic hearing about the importance of those things coming from Mr. Rove. Very ironic. Isn’t that the guy we loved to hate just 2 years ago? Isn’t he the guy that drove us nuts with wacky for 8 years? Do I give a fig who Rove rather we vote for now? Me thinks I will vote against his choice every damned time!
Good going Delaware voters!
Ms. O’Donnell dismissed his comments. “Everything he is saying is unfactual,” she said. “And it’s a shame, because he’s the same so-called political guru that predicted I wasn’t going to win. And we won, and we won big.”
She called the criticism by Mr. Rove and other top Republicans in Washington and Delaware “political cannibalism,” and said that her defeat of Representative Michael N. Castle, a former governor, in the G.O.P. primary had more to do with his record.
It is time the American people go rogue and start electing non incumbents and might I add more women. I also believe in voter imposed term limits. Never give anyone enough time to run your life – they are our servants they work FOR us, unless of course we are too damned lazy to keep watch. Eternal Vigilance is the Price of Liberty
The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has announced they will not support their own nominee for U.S. Senate, Christine O’Donnell, because they wanted their preferred candidate, Liberal RINO Mike Castle.
Via: OurCountryPAC Let’s make this petition go viral overnight so when @NRSC goes to work in the am, they come to their senses http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/supportchristineodonnell/
What it is about? The NRSC are acting like kids who did not get what they wanted so they are not going to give their own party nominee funds for the November election. Time to tell them to stop crying, grow up, and do the responsible thing.
