BIDENGATE! Another Mike Castle Campaign Scandal in Delaware
American Conservative Daily ^ | 09/07/2010

MIKE CASTLE TEAM PROMOTES BIDEN’S SON AS DELAWARE GOP REFUSES TO RUN CANDIDATE

AGAINST DEMOCRAT ATTORNEY GENERAL

(WILMINGTON) — The shameful insider political games continue for Liberal RINO Mike Castle and his political team in Delaware.

The Chairman of the Delaware Republican Party, who has become... the principal spokesperson for Mike Castle’s campaign for U.S. Senate, has decided to run cover for Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Beau Biden.

Astonishingly, Ross and the Delaware Republican Party have decided to not even field a candidate to challenge Democrat Beau Biden as he runs for re-election as Attorney General for the state of Delaware....

This acquiescence to the Democrats has emerged as the greatest liability for Mike Castle and his campaign. During his time in Congress, Castle voted for Barack Obama’s agenda (on issues where Obama took a position) nearly 60% of the time.

To understand how significant it is that the Castle political network has once again protected the Democrat Party’s agenda, consider what Tom Ross (again, Castle’s biggest advocate in the state, a spokesperson for the campaign and the state’s GOP Chairman) has had to say about Conservative Republican, Christine O’Donnell. It is astounding, shameful, and wholly unacceptable to see a state GOP Chair rip a stalwart conservative of his own party, while repeatedly engaged in running cover for the Democrats:

“She’s not a viable candidate for any office in the state of Delaware,” state party chairman Tom Ross, who is backing Castle, said in a telephone interview. “She could not be elected dog catcher.”

-Tom Ross quoted at Slate.com (via Associated Press) on 9/2/2010

While Ross and the Delaware GOP refused to run a candidate to challenge the Democrat Attorney General, they have actually launched a hit website to smear their own U.S. Senate candidate, Conservative Republican Christine O’Donnell.

This guy Ross is a disgrace. I am sure this is part of the corrupt deal in which Castle takes the Senate Seat, then flips to the Dems and steps aside for Beau Biden.

The same deal (called the Swap) happened when Castle was governor. He was term limited, so he made a deal with the Democrat Congressman (now Senator) Tom Carper to run for Governor while Carper ran for Congress:

"In the small and intimate political community of Delaware important decisions are often made by a consensus of leaders in both parties. So it was in 1992, when popular incumbent Governor Michael N. Castle was forced to retire due to term limits. The result was what became known as "the Swap." Castle ran for Carper's seat in the U. S. House of Representatives and Carper ran for Governor. Neither faced any significant opposition and Delaware retained the services of two very popular office holders. [Barf]"

The RINOs and the Dems called the deal "The Swap. Conservatives in Delaware no doubt called it "The Shaft".

Don't let them give us the shaft again. Vote Christine O'Donnell on Tuesday, September 14!

We MUST take America back !!

Your god is power, you have no shame
Your only interest is political gain
You hide your eyes and refuse to listen
You play your games and abuse the system
You stuff your pockets while Rome is burning
I’ve got a feeling that the tide is turning

Thanks for doing the important stuff.

Now I’m sure all the posters complaining about O’Donnell, even though they really oppose Castle (really!), will come out and condemn him for this.

As someone who has lived in Delaware, I will tell you the following about Castle, Biden, and Carper, they are pals in politics. They all really don’t differ too much when you look at their voting records while they have been in office.

“Now I’m sure all the posters complaining about O’Donnell, even though they really oppose Castle (really!), will come out and condemn him for this.”

I am not holding my breath for this to happen. Where is freedom warrior and mac truck and the rest of the Castle amen chorus? They will probably spin this somehow.

Castle is a STEALTH DEM! Period. Paragraph. No Republican and especially no conservative should vote for him.

PPP poll hot off the presses. O’Donnell leads 47-44. The smear campaign is backfiring.
