MIKE CASTLE TEAM PROMOTES BIDENS 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 Castles campaign for U.S. Senate, has decided to run cover for Vice President Joe Bidens 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 Obamas 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 Partys agenda, consider what Tom Ross (again, Castles biggest advocate in the state, a spokesperson for the campaign and the states GOP Chairman) has had to say about Conservative Republican, Christine ODonnell. 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:
Shes 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 ODonnell.

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!
Ping! And ping anyone who you think would be interested in this latest betrayal by Castle Ross and the corrupt Delaware GOP.
Why settle for the Jim Jeffords and Arlen Specter twofer, when you can get Mike Castle for the hat trick?
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
Ive got a feeling that the tide is turning
2010 and they aren’t even putting up a candidate? Idiots.
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 Im sure all the posters complaining about ODonnell, 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.
Holy crap that’s fantastic! I’ve been sending her a little money here and there. I think the fire is catching. God bless her and everyone trying to take this country back.
time to add another layer of tinfoil
PPP poll headline: Castle in the Moat! (Alligator bait in the Delaware bayou.)
