However what I'm seeing recently is a movement by many to decrease and decrease the differences in political opinions among members of the Republican Party or the conservative movenment in general including the Tea Party and Republican party.

    Now thats all just opinion, there's no way to factually say the Republican Party is becoming too narrow in its focus, its all just opinion and perspective. However thats my concern.
    The GOP has been far far too close to the "center" and as a result the nation is falling off the left edge of the table. Shooting RINO's is the best way to move the party to the Right, where the Americans are. Absent that, kicking them out of office is good enough.

    Maybe.

    I say that, in today's American Resurgence that 11 points + "Chris Coons: The Making of a Bearded Marxist" = close race.

    If she has no chance where is the huge lead

    11 points is a relatively huge lead. Especially this close to election day.

    ms odonnell is hot, she will bounce, her achievement impresses

    she profits by being personally trashed by THE ESTABLISHMENT, just like ms brewer, just like ms haley in sc, just like ms pro wrestler in ct, just like the great grizzly herself

    mr castle's pouty, poor loser persona, his petty peevishness, repels a portion of his support which will sympathize with the dumped-on upstart

    ms odonnell will cut her deficit in half within a week

    this race is gonna be close, don't count her out

    Dav, your guy lost and he's a sore loser to boot.
    Now if O'Donnell can beat Harry Reid's pet, we'll have someone who's votes will reflect the will of the people.

    Well its all opinion based on where one's personal views are, however it the American people were truely where you said they were than the Tea Party would be much bigger than it is, and the Dems wouldnt control the three branches right now.

    Its supposed to be the "Grand Old Party" big, proud, and diverse, all I've seen is an attempt by many to boot some of its own members because they aren't 'conservative enough.' As in, there's no room more moderates, something thats become a dirty word.

    Can someone please explain where the hell they came up with the myth that the GOP is supposed to be "diverse" to be "grand"? I'm not seeing it. If it's so far to the left that a duplicitous ass like Castle can get the party leadership biting the people's choice, then the party has nothing to be proud of. It has become, like the Democrats, party of pull.

    The GOP is supposed to reflect AMERICAN values, not "big tent" bull**** so vast there's 92 rings and no center pole to hold the thing up? The implosion of the GOP began when the Bushes started this Big Tent bull**** and lost the support of the right (ie, American) as the country clubbers pursued the big spending socialists. Thus came 2006 and 2008.

    Nope, the Americans are awakening again, something that's happened only a couple of times in the past, something that takes a decade or more to complete, and it's something that Saul Alinsky didn't plan for in his little book on how to wreck America. If it's a true awakening, the Left is going to be screaming. If it's not, the nation is never going to wake from it's socialist coma, and the question you lefties have to ask yourselves is what are you going to do when you've stolen all the money there is? That there should be a really important question for anyone on the left reading this message, because, to be blunt, you're not going to do well when the nanny state dies.

    Re: Delaware Senate Race: A Kamikaze Republican and the Tea Party

    Firstly, you dont know what socialism is, its obvious you've never seen or lived in a socialist nation.

    Secondly, are you telling me that the reason the Republican party/ideology doesn't have more supporters is because it has too many supporters? What I'm reading is that people left the party because Bush tried to make it too encompassing, and the only way to make it bigger is in fact to make it smaller by throwing out people like Castle and his supporters?

    More is less, less is more? What?

    He plagiarized... yet... the Journolists and Democrats gave him a full deck of "Get out of jail free" cards.

    And he's pulled all sorts or dumb statements... yet he's fit to be Senator and VP.

    Character?

    Yes... he's a character all right... a character lacking character.

    BY CAROL FELSENTHAL

    ... There is a feast of material that would make even the most partisan Obama backer question the wisdom of this choice.

    Biden, then 44, was forced out of the 1988 presidential race...Biden had lifted almost verbatim... lines were lifted from a passionate speech delivered by British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock.

    Not only did Biden not credit Kinnock, he fooled his audience by using the classic liar’s technique of burnishing a lie with detail...

    Stealing from RFK

    Biden also lifted words from Bobby Kennedy’s speeches — paragraphs that political junkies prized so much they knew them by heart.

    Anyone following the primary campaign in 1987...

    ‘I have a much higher IQ’

    There were a number of lies in this outburst and it was not long before they too were enumerated:

    Biden got in trouble in 1965, during his first year in law school. He wrote a paper in which he lifted five pages verbatim from the Fordham Law Review. He was given an “F” in the course. He managed to avoid being bounced from law school, retook the course and earned a B.

    • He claimed that he was “the only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship.” He didn’t. He did have a half scholarship that was need-based.

    • He did not graduate from law school in the top half of his class. He graduated 76th out of 85 — and he was near the bottom of his class all three years.

    • If he won the moot court competition — and he claimed at the time that he actually did — he did not put it on his resume, surprising for a man prone to so egregiously exaggerating his accomplishments.

    • He did not win the award for being the outstanding student in the political science department at Delaware, and he graduated with one degree, not three. He had a “C” average and graduated 506th in a class of 688.

    There are other weird outbursts by Biden in more recent years...

    Carol Felsenthal is a columnist for the Chicago Daily Observer, where this essay was posted.
    His vapid Stock market comments.
    Lies about the Casey brothers in Scranton.
    His Seven-11 comments about Indian accents.
    Obama being "first mainstream... clean and articulate".
