Yes, Delaware, And The Nation, Are Better Off Without Mike Castle

By Gary P Jackson

Readers know that I got rather invested, and even angry over the Delaware Republican primary. This was one of the most important elections of the season, even though for the most part, it had been running under the radar for much of the year.

Though the election in November decides who represents Delaware, it’s not like the rest of the elections this season. This is a special election for the unexpired term of Vice President Joe Biden, who won re-election in 2008 despite also being Barack Obama’s running mate. The term expires in 2014.

What makes this so vital is the fact the winner of this seat will be sworn in immediately, and become part of the current lame duck Congress. If you have been paying attention, you know the Marxist-democrats have a rather aggressive lame duck session planned as a very special “going away” present to the American people. One last shot at passing their destructive legislation like cap and tax, amnesty, card check for the unions, and so on.

The reason this win is so vital, and why Christine O’Donnell’s supporters have been so passionate is we know she will be able to be the most important vote to stop the radicals in their tracks. On the other hand, Mike Castle supports it all, and was a sure vote for the complete Obama agenda.

Now that the election is over, the GOP elites, the Ruling Class, has lamented the loss of such a noble “moderate” from their ranks. Karl “Tokyo Rove“, Charles Krauthammer, and others have made themselves look foolish by caterwauling over their good buddy Castle’s huge defeat at the hands of Christine O’Donnell. It’s been quite telling.

The naked lust for this seat, no matter who was in it, as long as they had an “R” after their name was disgusting to see.

At least we now have proof the so-called “smart people” aren’t really all that after all.

As we worked hard to point out, Mike Castle is no “moderate.” Frankly I hate that word, especially when applied to politicians, because it is usually used as cover for some left wing poseur. Remember, the corrupt media still calls Obama a “moderate.

Anyhow, as we found out, not only was Mike Castle a far lefty hiding among the Republicans, he also co-founded the Republican Main Street Partnership along with Nazi sympathizer George Soros, the self-proclaimed owner of the Marxist-democrat party.

The Republican Main Street Partnership is almost like an al Qaeda sleeper cell. Posing as a Republican group The Republican Main Street Partnership PAC supports ACORN-friendly, Big Labor-backing, tax-and-spend, abortion radicals in GOP clothing like Dede Scozzafava.

As Michelle Malkin pointed out:

This isn’t “Main Street.” This is the road to progressive hell. We already have one too many shady Soros Republicans in the Senate — and John McCain doesn’t need any more company.

You can read more of Michelle’s expose here.

As damning as this is, and frankly, to me being tied to George Soros is as bad as it gets, there is more. Let’s take a look at this analysis courtesy of gekkobear:

Mike Castle has a 52% Lifetime ACU Rating. But how’s he done recently; say post 2000? How’s he trending?

2000 68% … not solid, but not bad… election year.
2001 48% … More against than for.
2002 76% … pretty good. And an election year.
2003 40% … Solid Democrat.
2004 52% … barely conservative, election year.
2005 28% … Serious Democrat
2006 52% … barely conservative, election year.
2007 20% … beats quite a few Democrats there.
2008 28% … I guess he didn’t have a hard election challenge?
2009 56% … Senate election, or just breaking the pattern?

Now since the Senate only has elections every 6 years; lets re-run those numbers.

For an election year since 2000 he’s hit a 68, 76, 52, 52, 28 or 55.2 ACU rating average.

For a non-election year since 2000 he’s hit 48, 40, 28, 20, 56 or 38.4 average.

Figure 5 years at 38.4 and 1 year at 55.2 gives us an estimate that we can count on his vote about 41% of the time.

Or just look at his trend over time. Averaging his last 6 years (3 terms) listed (2004-2009) he’s got a 39.3.

This analysis uses data from Project Vote Smart, one of the best places to research congressscritters.

Once you really look at Castle’s voting patterns, you realize that he isn’t even nominally a Republican, and most certainly not a Conservative. If you do your research you’ll find a good number of House democrats that have a better rating from the American Conservatives Union (ACU) than Mike Castle.

Here’s the danger of people like Castle, and how they fool the “smart” pundits and voters. They will vote with the party on rather meaningless procedures, but on the most important issues of our time, the RINOs let you down every single time. They will always vote for radical leftist legislation. They cover this up by voting heavily with the party in election years.

Castle was relatively harmless, even with his ties to Soros, while he was in the House. First of all, he was but one of 435 members, so in most cases his vote had little impact, and since House members come up for re-election every two years, he had to watch his votes, lest he be found out, and voted out.

Had Castle become a United States Senator, his vote would have had major impact. In fact, in close situations, it may have been the single most important vote. Being as he is a leftist anyway, it wouldn’t be hard to entice him to vote with the Marxists. Reports were he had already made deals to switch parties when elected. These reports are kind of hard to blow off, especially since Castle hasn’t had time to make the traditional call of congratulations to Christine O’Donnell, but has had time to talk to both Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

The other problem of course, and this is a problem with all Senators, they are only up for re-election every six years. Voters have short memories, or at least they used to. Easy to sneak by some less than popular votes. Of course, Castle is 71, and this might have been his one and only term as a Senator. His last hurrah. His last chance to advance the anti-American agenda of his partner, George Soros.

In other words: Delaware, and the nation, are better off without Mike Castle.

Christine O’Donnell, RINO Hunter

By Gary P Jackson

We just liked this and wanted to share. Courtesy of Theo Spark.

Now that she’s bagged herself a big old nasty RINO, it’s time to go coon hunting, as in Harry Reid’s “pet, Chris Coons, the self-proclaimed Marxist.

SOCK IT TO JOE: The Christine O’Donnell Money Bomb

By Gary P Jackson

Mike Castle is the King Daddy RINO, or as Remove RINOs calls him: the Ace of Spades of liberal Republicans. As a sitting “Republican” Congressman, Castle is voting almost 100 percent with Nancy Pelosi and her far left cabal.

Castle’s latest vote gives $26 billion to union thugs, while cutting food stamps for needy families. This is nothing more than a payback to the people who put Pelosi, and Obama in power. Castle went all in for his peeps on the left.

As we have written, Castle is now running for Vice President Joe Biden’s old seat in Delaware, and there is a real twist to this. It is being reported that Castle has made a deal with his far left buddies, and, upon winning the Senate seat, and being sworn in, will pull an Arlen Specter, and become a democrat. It’s also being reported he has made a deal to then resign, and allow Joe Biden’s son Beau to be appointed to the seat.

Thankfully, no one has to sit back and put up with this nonsense. There is a real Conservative in this race: Christine O’Donnell.

This is a special election, BTW, and has national implications, which we’ll get to in a minute.

Christine O’Donnell is a solid, principled candidate. She is a Common Sense Conservative who will help restore America as a Constitutional Republic, and stand up for the Rule of Law.

With that in mind, friends of Christine O’Donnell have a brand new website set up: SOCK IT TO JOE.

The goal of SOCK IT TO JOE is to put “Joe Biden’s Senate seat into Constitutional Republican hands.” The best way to do that is visit SOCK IT TO JOE and drop some green.

Also stop on by Christine O’Donnell’s website at http://christine2010.com/

Please remember this is a special election. The winner will take office immediately, and be part of the lame duck session. That’s why this race has national implications. The winner of this election has the ability to stop anything the radical Obama regime and Congress has planned.

Christine O’Donnell can stop cap & tax, card check, and every other unpopular far left plan the Marxist-democrats have planned for their lame duck session.

Mike Castle will be a solid vote for it all, and more.

So, let’s SOCK IT TO JOE and send a Constitutional Republican to Washington.

Let’s send Christine O’Donnell!

What Is Mike Castle REALLY Up To In Delaware?

By Gary P Jackson

If you are not familiar with the special election being held in the state of Delaware, for the vacant U.S. Senate seat, let me clue you in. There are two Republicans running: Congressman Mike Castle, and Christine O’Donnell. They will eventually face off with the Marxist-democrat in the race.

Being as this is a special election, the November winner will be seated immediately, and will be able to stop Congress’ attempt to ram some incredibly destructive legislation down America’s throat as a finalFlying Fickle Finger of Fate to the voters who will have thrown them out of office.

With that in mind, sending the right person to Washington is essential. Mike Castle is what most would classify as a RINO. (Republican In Name Only) Looking at his record, I’d have to say he is the enemy of Freedom and Liberty. He is most certainly the enemy of the Constitution, as well as the American people.

Remove RINOs calls him the Ace of Spades of liberal Republicans.

Castle is an establishment Republican and has been in elected office for over 40 years. After serving in state government, he was elected to Congress in 1993, and since that time he has managed to compile one of the most liberal voting records in the GOP.

A few highlights of his liberal record include:

* Mike Castle voted FOR Cap-and-Trade.

* Mike Castle voted FOR the $700 billion TARP bill.

* Mike Castle voted AGAINST the surge in Iraq.

* After ObamaCare was passed into law, Mike Castle refused to support the Repeal movement.

* Voted to ban incandescent light bulbs.

* Voted to investigate George W Bush for impeachment for “lying” about Iraq.

Mike Castle has an alarmingly “progressive” voting record that would make the most radical of leftists quite proud. Read more at RemoveRINOs here.

As crazy as this all sounds, Eric Erickson over at Red State uncovered an even more diabolical plot:

If Mike Castle becomes the next United States Senator from Delaware he is going to get sworn in, serve a bit, then become a Democrat, resign, and let Beau Biden get an appointment.

It’s a done deal. The deal has been made already. I’m hearing this not just from Christine O’Donnell people, but party regulars in Delaware, some of whom support Castle. It is insane.

Maybe that is why Mike Castle is running from Christine O’Donnell. He is afraid to have to answer questions about this. The man will not debate her to save his life.

[ …. }

And here’s another dirty little secret Mike Castle would prefer you not know. This election? It’s a special election. Whoever wins it gets sworn in immediately. Immediately as in prior to any lame duck session of Congress.

In a lame duck session of Congress, would you rather have Christine O’Donnell or Mike Castle? One of the two will defend freedom. The other will become a Democrat.

In case you didn’t know, Beau Biden is the son of Vice President Joe Biden, who also hails from Delaware.

This is pretty fantastic, but with Arlen Specter switching parties, in an effort to win, as well as the other long time RINO Charlie Crist in Florida going independent, and likely to caucus with the Marxists-democrats should he win, this sounds about right.

There is no room in the Republican Party for far left radicals posing as “moderates” or whatever. Guys like Mike Castle are traitors to the people and traitors to the Constitution. Their naked lust for power consumes them. It’s all that matters.

So …. what is one to do?

Support Christine O’Donnell, of course. Christine is a real deal, Common Sense Conservative.

Check out her website: http://christine2010.com/ and follow her on Twitter. Christine is endorsed by the Tea Party Express, and has a compelling life story. She is the kind of leader we need serving in the United States Senate.

Get involved. Send her a buck or two, and donate some time. Make phone calls, go door to door, whatever you can.

Mike Castle would be a disaster for the nation if elected. He’s already done plenty of damage during his career. Times are just too perilous to allow him to continue.

Let’s all do all we can to send Christine O’Donnell to Washington to help turn this nation around.
