    I don't consider it "going after her" to enlighten the voters of a candidates inability to manage their own personal finances. RE: Tim Geithner
    she's also a liar. but most of them are.

    Good riddance.

    As an aside: I notice CBS and others like to say she is "Tea Party-backed"... which is fine. I only wish they would write their stories about Obama (and Dems) with Alinsky-Styled, ACLU-backed, ACORN-backed, Rev. Wright mentored etc.

    .

    Will be curious/telling if Castle comes out (either directly or indirectly) in favor of her opponent (Coons).....

    Any idea how contested the nomination was on the Dem side of the picture? Was Coons involved in a heavily fought primary....?

    Because it shows some class.
    Because you're supposed to be big enough to put a defeat behind you.
    Because you rally around the representative of your party... no matter how badly it hurts.

    His behavior merely proved the electorate was right.

    Are you seriously suggesting that he should "rally behind her" just because she has an (R) after her name?

    Sadly that's what is expected these days. No room for free thought, just do what the party leadership tells you.

    O'Donnell, BTW, is a crazy loon.

    This is how you break a representative Republic. There is no way in hell he should support her if she varies too greatly from his own political platform. He's completely different politically. Supporting her would show lack of resolve, lack of conviction, lack of a functioning brain. You vote for the person you believe is best able to do the job, who is best competent at the job, who most closely resembles your political platform and beliefs. This crazy girl differs greatly from his own political beliefs and thus there is no logical reason to endorse her.

    I just heard a speech he was giving before he lost. Going on and on about how everyone needs to back the republicans. I guess he didn't mean himself.

    He sounds like it's all about him. He hasn't even called to congratulate her, much less endorse her.

    AND he's met with Biden and Obama. Maybe looking for a job on their team in exchange for not endorsing her?

    If he doesn't political agree with her, I don't see any reason why he should endorse her just because they have the same letter next to their name.

    If there were room for free thought on the side of the dims, then the healthcare debacle would be a memory. Instead we have it, and we get to enojoy it in all its glory come next year. Hopefully the Republicans can stop funding it like they promised. Trust me, everyone will be watching that. Either way, you're niave if you think the "party" doesn't move as one politically. The Dems do, and so do the Republicans. I don't like it, and frankly I would prefer people vote their conscience, but that ain't happening, so the conservatives, if they act like conservatives once in power will clean a lot of it up.

    We always end up cleaning up someone else's mess.

    It's what we do.
