O’Donnell says GOP establishment not helping her

WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell of Delaware is calling out the Republican establishment in Washington for not helping her underdog campaign.

In an interview on ABC’s “This Week” that aired Sunday, the tea party favorite said she has asked the National Republican Senatorial Committee for help but that the group is standing on the sidelines even though her Democratic rival, Chris Coons, is getting a boost from his party.

A spokesman for the Republican committee, Brian Walsh, has noted that the group gave O’Donnell the maximum direct contribution of $42,000 and is working with her campaign.

The committee is not spending heavily on ads as it is in closer races elsewhere. Polls show Coons with a strong lead.

O’Donnell says GOP establishment not helping her

Maybe she can cast a spell and make the GOP get behind her.

What? Just sayin’… :?

Seriously, I know we ALL did, and said things in our youth that we wish we hadn’t, but like the guy that throws the pitch that gets knocked out of the park, you just know that O’Donnell wishes she had that one about witchcraft and the Satanic altar date back.

But you’ve got to admit, O’Donnell has spunk, and she’s not backing down either.

O’Donnell calls Coons a Marxist in Del. debate

Delaware Senate candidates Christine O’Donnell and Chris Coons tangled with each other over taxes, Afghanistan, whether he’s a Marxist and whether she’s a deadbeat in a combative 90-minute debate that also veered into evolution, abortion, religion and gay rights.

Democrat Coons, the New Castle County executive, and Republican O’Donnell, a conservative activist and national celebrity since her Tea Party-powered primary victory over veteran Rep. Mike Castle, started right off trading insults. He said she supports failed economic policies and extreme education positions, and prefers “partisan bickering” over compromise and solutions. She said voters should choose him if they think their government is too small, their taxes are too low and they want a rubber stamp for President Obama’s failing economic policies.

The moderators – CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and Delaware public television anchor Nancy Karibjanian – did their part to make sure no sore subject went unmentioned. In the case of O’Donnell, that meant her personal finances and past TV appearances in which she has talked about subjects like masturbation (equivalent to adultery) and witchcraft (she dabbled in it long ago).

Karibjanian noted an IRS tax lien against O’Donnell for about $12,000 in taxes and penalties from 2005, a 2008 mortgage default judgment on her home, and the bachelor’s degree the 41-year-old candidate received this year “because it took a decade to pay off the tuition. The question, then, is how can voters rely upon your thoughts on how to manage the deficit if you’re having such personal financial issues of your own?”

O’Donnell calls Coons a Marxist in Del. debate

I honestly have to say, I haven’t kept up with this race. I don’t know anything about Coons, I know little about O’Donnell other than what the media has put out there.

Maybe Coons really is a Marxist, maybe O’Donnell really is a witch, all I know is this, if Christine O’Donnell is the best the GOP could come up with, if the guy she beat was so pathetic that O’Donnell took him down, the GOP in Delaware is in deep poo-poo.

If I had a chance to interview O’Donnell, this is how it might go…

TexasFred, ‘Christine, are you a Good Witch or a Bad Witch?’

O’Donnell, ‘I’m not a witch at all. I’m an Irish-Italian Roman Catholic from Moorestown, New Jersey, and I never made it to ‘full fledged’ witch, I only dabbled in witchcraft, that’s not like being Samantha or Endora or anything. And Sarah Palin thinks I’m just peachy keen and that I’ll make a great running mate in 2012 by golly, you betcha I will doggone it!’

TexasFred, ‘So, tell us, WHY would Palin think you’re a good choice as HER running mate in 2012?’

O’Donnell, ‘Oh you big silly, I have a lot of experience, and if I win in Delaware I’ll have 2 years of experience in Washington, and that was more than enough to get Obama elected. And besides, I can turn a catchy phrase as well as Sarah, check out this one, I wrote it too; Save your money and don’t play with yourself. That’s pretty catchy huh? I have more…’

TexasFred, ‘ I can see right now, you have a great future in politics…’ :P

With that on your mind, enjoy The Eagles and their Witchy Woman

    Not a bad song…but not one I’d be singing in the shower. I do like how the video was put together with the graphic inbetween stanzas.

    Getting back to O’Donnell; she has to be better than the Bearded Marxist

  2. comment number 2 by: BobF

    The thing I like about O’Donnell is that she’s not a politician. The fact that the blue blood elites in the Republican Party aren’t strongly behind her is another plus for me. But, I don’t know a lot about her because I haven’t followed this one. With the RINO’s in the GOP and Democrats against her, there has to be something good about her.

    She doesn’t *play* with herself… :?

    She was never a Bearded Wiccan.

    The way the media is attacking her is enough to make me say: “you go girl!”

  6. comment number 6 by: Always On Watch

    Frankly, I don’t give a damn about O’Donnell’s youthful foolishness.

    I’m strictly interested in her position on the issues — and that position is what voters should be taking into consideration.

    Personal life

    O’Donnell came to a turning point in her personal life when she was about 21, and was preparing to audition for a Broadway play.[1][13] Originally a political liberal who believed in abortion rights, a formative experience occurred when she saw graphic descriptions and pictures in medical journals of how an abortion is performed.[13] “‘There’s only truth and not truth,’ O’Donnell said she realized at that moment. ‘You’re either very good or evil.’”[1] She dropped her acting aspirations, began thinking about moral issues, and became an evangelical Christian, liking the moral certainty of that religion.[1] She chose to live a chaste life, began espousing sexual abstinence, and joined the College Republicans.[3][25]

    O’Donnell has been described as a former Catholic turned evangelical Christian.[3] The Wilmington News Journal reported that she converted back to Catholicism in 2006.[1] She told The New York Times in 2010 that she embraces both faiths,[13] and has said she now attends Catholic and Protestant services.[26]

    She is single but has said she is interested in marrying.[13]

    Political positions

    On September 16, 2010, O’Donnell said she does not believe in regulating private sexual behavior; and, if elected, she will base her political actions on the Constitution, rather than her personal beliefs.[110][111] She specifically disavowed her 1996 anti-masturbation stance, saying “I was a pundit. I was very passionate in my 20s and wanted to share my beliefs.”[111]

    O’Donnell has identified herself as a member of the “values movement”,[48] and is pro-life.[112] She opposes abortion, including in cases of rape and incest,[27] but if the woman was otherwise going to die, she would allow family members to decide which life to save.[110] O’Donnell opposes human embryonic stem cell research,[88] human cloning,[27] and research into cloning monkey embryos.[7]

    O’Donnell says that she will never vote to increase taxes.[113] She is in favor of a balanced budget amendment,[114][62][115] opposes Congressional earmarks,[27] and supports a simplification of the tax code.[116]

    O’Donnell has said that Democrats have stopped America from attaining energy independence by curtailing the drilling of oil in the Gulf of Mexico. She supports the building of more refineries, and the use of Delaware’s agricultural products in gasoline.[117] She opposes cap and trade legislation.[118][119]

    The National Rifle Association endorses O’Donnell,[71] saying she “will be a strong voice in fighting ongoing efforts by anti-gun politicians to dismantle the Second Amendment.”[120]

    O’Donnell says the first thing she would like to do if elected is to vote to repeal health care legislation enacted by Congress in 2010.[119][121] She signed the Tea Party activists’ “Contract from America,”[122] which pledges to replace the act with a system that makes healthcare affordable by ” enabling a competitive, open, and transparent free-market health care and health insurance system”.[123]

    O’Donnell favors increasing penalties for employers who hire illegal immigrants,[124] and supports raising the age for receiving Social Security benefits.[110][125]

    O’Donnell has said that if elected she will not support Mitch McConnell continuing on as the Republican leader of the Senate.[13]


    Well… There you go, the perfect little guilt ridden ex-Catholic *wild child* turned holy roller Palin wannabe that has NO business experience and claims college records that can’t be found and has colleges that say they never heard of her… Sound familiar?

    It’s a shame that social networking claims can come back and bite you in the ass huh?? :P

    America IS saved… If she was only half Kenyan…

    O’Donnell is a big mistake. I’d say that much is quite evident. However, I understand where her popularity comes from. I’d wager, at this point, that she is the “anti” reaction from some voters — a response, however wacky, to the far left.


  9. comment number 9 by: TexasFred

    BZ — That’s what guys like you and me have been fighting for a long time, just because the LEFT gets by with STOOPID, the RIGHT thinks it’s OK too…

    And that is the mindset that has America in the crapper… The *anti* vote is a joke, different doesn’t necessarily make things better, it just makes them different, look at Obama..

    Kind of like the old, “What’s worse? To burn to death or drown?” You’re DEAD either way… And if O’Donnell, and Palin for that matter, is the answer, America is on life support…

    GOP is not helping her and they will lose a senate seat because of it. Would the people of Deleware rather have a died in the wool marxist? Believe this woman would do a decent job if given the chance. Can go into the background of anyone who grew up in the 70s and 80s and have a field day with their thoughts and deeds.

    minuteman26 — Can go into the background of anyone who grew up in the 70s and 80s and have a field day with their thoughts and deeds.

    Only if they are stupid enough to make false claims and post it on a social networking site…

    Her *so-called* college records are as big a joke as those of Obama, and her only *JOB* has been as a political party person, ie: Obama and community organizer…

    It’s simply amazing to me, the number of people that blast Obama, and he deserves every bit of it, but then turn around and give a cute GOP chick a free pass…

    Fred . . She beat Castle who didn’t lift a finger. Her success was probably more a “better of two weasels” vote. The GOP has been, fron the start, confident O’Donnell wouldn’t win in a contest with Coons. The election would be a slam dunk for him. The GOP has no money to waste.

    O’Donnell is NOT a politician. She’s a more or less average air-head with good intentions. The only thing in her favor is that she is not an entrenched socialist left liberal nut case. I’m sure there are voters in Delaware that would vote for a tree stump instead on Coons.

    And Lord knows, we don’t have nearly enough well intentioned *air-heads* in D.C. already… :?

    Hey, you got a hit from Piscataway!

    There really IS a town called Piscataway!

    I should have known it would be in New Jersey. . .


  15. comment number 15 by: DanLWar

    I think that O’Donnell is even in the discussion at all should BE the discussion. How the hell did that happen?

    Clueless Americans clutching at straws; anything but what we have now, even as they don’t realize what we have now is what they chose…perhaps a sorta voter’s buyer’s remorse thing, even though they think it was a gift and not something they bought themselves.

    Until the ‘right’ (and I’d almost wish we on the right were called the left just so it didn’t sound like we just thought we were right) has arguments which are better than “she’s an idiot” or “he’s not black or white”, we’ll be excused as just thinking we’re right.

    Make a coherent argument. Learn your material. Learn the Constitution of the United States and ask your representives to uphold it. Point out when they fail to, support them when they do. Don’t call names or point out silly things; that undermines us who do care, just as we point out those we don’t agree with can’t seem to put forth a logical reason for their being our elected leader.

    Rise up, yes. Do not sink to fight those who’ve sunk so low already! Rise up and be heard, yes! Don’t yell and act a fool.

    There’s a ton of idiots and they need to be called idiots. Just do so politely, with logic behind your words, and don’t make yourself one in the process.
