Senator Scott from South Carolina

The Rise of the New South continues with South Carolina replacing Conservative Stalwart Jim DeMint with Conservative rising star Tim Scott. It is worth noting that South Carolina is now a state with a minority woman as governor and a minority man as U. S. Senator. Who would have predicted that outcome 3 years ago? One interesting historical fact is that the majority of blacks who will serve as U. S. Senators will have been Republicans.

While the historical side to it is intriguing, especially when we are talking about the firebrand state which birthed the old Confederate States of America, the most important part of the pick is that Governor Haley keeps the Tea Party in the loop, solidifies her standing with Pro-life constituents nationally, and the senate keeps a powerful constitutional voice. She picked someone as close to Jim DeMint as she could get without stopping him from retiring. The move is logical because Scott has a statewide following and political base that Haley shares. They will make a good team in 2014 and will help Haley keep her base energized even though Lindsey Graham is on the ticket. It unites the party because now Tea Party money and energy will focus more on electing Scott and reelecting Haley than defeating Graham. In one move, she unites the party and energizes her base.

The move also enhances Governor Haley’s standing nationally. The GOP now has 2 of the 3 Latino Senators and the only Black in the Senate. She has garnered favorable national attention for the party. Her choice is not only seen as adding to the diversity of the party, but she wins on points because her choice is also one of the strongest to win election in his own right. He has a national fundraising base. Senator Jim DeMint calls him a superior voice even to DeMint’s. In one stroke she changed the dialog about the GOP. She may have solidified her own growing national stardom. Unlike her ally, Sarah Palin, Nikki Haley has used her governorship in a way that builds her standing. Governor Palin was one of the most successful governors in state history with major economic, infrastructure, reform, and educational initiatives, but she left prematurely to become a celebrity not a politician/stateswoman. That hurts her in the pursuit of the ultimate political office. Haley is politically outwitting and outmatching her opponents in both parties.

    Outwitting you too, apparently. Her current job approval rating is 38%, pretty close to where it has hovered all of 2012.

    Republican Diversity Fueled by Tea Party
    NATIONAL JOURNAL

    It’s ironic that at a time when party strategists are publicly panicking over the party’s need to diversify or face extinction, they’re blind to the reality that if it wasn’t for the much-maligned tea party, the Republican Party would be even more homogeneous than it is today.

    The nation’s second Indian-American governor appointed the only African-American who will be serving in the Senate come 2013. And not only are they both Republicans, they are tea party-aligned conservatives who took on the party establishment and won.

    REMEMBER: THOSE WHO WISH THE GOP HARM will always be attacking what is best about the GOP.

    When liberals attack some aspect of the Republican coalition, they are attacking what is most important for Republican success.

    Attacks on the tea party by liberals signal the strategic importance of the tea party movement to the GOP’s success.

    Liberals and Democrats generally repeatedly tell us what they fear most. This is particularly true when they lie and falsely smear a person or a group. The more incessantly the Left lies about a group, issue, movement, or candidate, the more they are telling you what a huge threat they see against their agenda.

  3. Attacks on the Tea Party are mostly by left-wing and moderate republicans who are dissatisfied with their loss of influence and power. In Delaware, the State GOP is chaffed about losing control of the Sussex GOP and is actively plotting a coup d’etat in Sussex.
    But the Sussex GOP has won seats, whereas the NCCo failed miserably to perform in any capacity. It is a wonder they won anything despite their lack of organization.

  4. No matter what Tim Scott’s ethnicity, I think he is a great pick and will be an excellent addition to the Senate and will do a great job for South Carolina.

  5. Gov Haley is doing fine, she has taken on the same garbage we have here in Delaware, they have a Delaware Way also and she is not buying into it.
    Also, there was a Savannah port miscue and some sort of state tax records(hacking) scandal. Bottom line, for those in Delaware who pontificate from afar it would help if they had a brain and got out of the state to see first hand what is going on.
    Gov Haley will roll to reelection. If only Delaware had a Republican party and Republican leaders.

    “Gov Haley will roll to reelection. If only Delaware had a Republican party and Republican leaders.”
    If only we could field someone powerful enough to put up with the crap their own party would sling at them. the problem is, that the GOP attacks their own candidates, if they don’t personally hand-pick them and then campaigns against them in a secret, “whisper campaigns” that costs them just enough votes to lose.
    The moderate upstate GOP is its own worst enemy!!

  7. Thank You QueenB for your great personal attack. I don’t know what I would do without you. Surely you could be more creative though. Just google, “great epithets.”

  8. Outwitting you too, apparently. Her current job approval rating is 38%, pretty close to where it has hovered all of 2012.

    “Job approval” ratings are meaningless. Congress’ ‘approval rating’ is always low, yet re-election rates are high. It’s like saying that your favorite football team ‘stinks,’ then watching every week like it’s life-or-death.

  9. Conservatives believe that people should be chosen for jobs based on merit and ability. We also believe in being honest with the voters, not pandering to them.

    But in elected office, representing society is part of the job. Strike that. It is the main part of the job. And if the Republican party claims that everyone is welcome equally in the GOP, it is incumbent on us to show it, especially when liberals are lying about Republicans.

    Now, it is preposterous to blame the tea party as liberals do if EVERYONE IS INVITED but you criticize who shows up. That’s nonsense. It isn’t the tea party’s fault who responds to the invitation.

    But the Republican party can work harder on recruitment that is open-minded, not going to the same old balding white dudes who are in the insider, establishment club.

    The first female US Senator was a Republican. Of course. The first female Supreme Court Justice was appointed by Ronald Reagan. Naturally. That’s who Republicans are. Liberals whine about equality while Republicans LIVE it.

    Ronald Reagan nominated I think the 2nd African American Supreme Court Justice. The first African American Chief of Staff of the armed forces was appointed by a Republican President. Obviously.

    Republicans nominated a woman to be the first woman US Senator from Delaware. Liberals within the party put up a balding old white dude 71 years of age to abandon his previously-filed campaign for the US House to attack the woman.

    Nice image. Get Republican insiders attacking and smearing a woman candidate. Great “optics” for winning over independents and Democrats — old white dude attacks and smears attractive young woman running to be the first woman US Senator ever from Delaware. Genius, those establishment Republicans.

    You don’t like the woman? Tough. Suck on a lemon. Deal with it. You don’t show the world the image of a balding old white dude beating up on a woman who could be the first woman Senator from the First State. You do understand that a lot of Republicans voted to nominate Christine O’Donnell BECAUSE Karl Rove told them not to ????

    In 2011 I worked on a campaign for an attractive conservative Latina, Jo-Ann Chase (who introduced Christine O’Donnell at a VIP reception in 2010.)

    There are no Republican hispanics elected to the Virginia General Assembly. However, the Republican insiders all lined up behind the man who promoted a mosque at Ground Zero instead of supporting a woman Hispanic for General Assembly.

    We still have a long way to go.

  10. Rick: You’re comparing an apple to a crate of oranges. “Congress” is an amorphous group. Individuals are just that, individuals.

  11. “Gov Haley is doing fine, she has taken on the same garbage we have here in Delaware, they have a Delaware Way also and she is not buying into it.”

    So 38% is “doing fine”? I guess by Mike Protack standards she is. That’s about what you got last month, isn’t it?

  12. Jon
    “Republicans nominated a woman to be the first woman US Senator from Delaware. Liberals within the party put up a balding old white dude 71 years of age to abandon his previously-filed campaign for the US House to attack the woman.”

    I had to comment on your comment. It is sooo true. It brought tears of laughter to me Just as the sun finally came out. I read your entire comment twice to get the full effect and more laughter.
    That’s what I was saying in an earlier comment. The NCCo GOP will campaign against any candidate they don’t specifically hand-pick. Tom Ross actually had the nads to claim that he supported Christine. I was rolling on the floor laughing at that claim also.
    The biggest reason that conservative pundits like Charles Krauthammer and Karl Rove abandoned her on national cable news is that even the Delaware GOP Chairman blatantly would not support the people’s choice for US Senate. That’s why I censored him and he well deserved it.

  13. That should read “the choice of the Republican people who voted in the primary.”

    The people’s choice was Chris Coons.

  14. Republicans nominated a woman to be the first woman US Senator from Delaware. Liberals within the party put up a balding old white dude 71 years of age to abandon his previously-filed campaign for the US House to attack the woman.
    That “woman” told the party, (in writing, you can find it on the internet), that she would not run for the Senate seat if that “balding old white dude” decided to run for the seat. She said that she would run for his Congressional seat.

    Nice image. Get Republican insiders attacking and smearing a woman candidate.
    It was as nice as the image of a so called “Christian” “woman” spreading rumors that the “old white dude” was “cheating on his wife with a man.” What kind of Christians try to destroy a marriage with sick, false claims of gay affairs? No Christian that ever made it into heaven.

    In 2011 I worked on a campaign for an attractive conservative Latina, Jo-Ann Chase (who introduced Christine O’Donnell at a VIP reception in 2010.)

    There are no Republican hispanics elected to the Virginia General Assembly. However, the Republican insiders all lined up behind the man who promoted a mosque at Ground Zero instead of supporting a woman Hispanic for General Assembly.
    You leave out that JoAnn Chase was running against a Lebanese man that YOU filed a lawsuit against falsly claiming that he was not a resident in the District and you and your ilk deployed an “Anti Shariah Task Force” to disrupt Grover Norquist announcing Ramadan’s candidacy.

    That’s why I censored him and he well deserved it.
    Tom Ross was never censored by you, an angry mob can’t censor anyone, only voting committee members have the power to vote on a censure and there was not a quorum present or a vote tallied.

  15. This is what your “woman” has accomplished in the past two years:
    -She wrote a book full of proved lies.
    -She sold her supporters names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses to mailing lists for money because her PAC failed to raise money.
    -She endorsed a RINO for President.
    -She endorsed an accused child rapist facing charges.
    -She tried to steal the intellectual property of another conservative and tried to profit off of it.
    -She depleted her PAC’s resources trying to prop herself up, without donating more than $5,000 to conservative candidates or causes.
    -She hosted a failed film festival.

    Meanwhile that “old white dude” has a good, full time job, raised tens of thousands of dollars for Delaware Republican candidates, is still working with Delaware’s homeless, and never changed his political registration even though your “woman” claimed that he was a “RINO” and who switch party affiliation.

  16. anon
    Although you are entitled to your own opinion, the things you allege are questionable and these wrongs that you claim happened after she ran for the US Senate.
    None of your allegations were a factor during her candidacy.
    I don’t know who you are, but saying something like “child rapist,” when the person has been convicted of nothing will definitely get you sued.
    If you want to withdraw that on line, say so and I will edit it.
    Otherwise I will not remove it.

  17. If Don Ayotte still thinks he censured Tom Ross he is sure is. In order to censure Ross there needed to be a quorum of voting committee members present and a tally of the voting members’s votes taken. There was no quorum present, and a count of voting members was never taken.

    The screams of non voting members at a meeting means absolutely NOTHING.

  18. QueenB
    This is the second time I’m citing you on a personal attack that is off topic. Please do not continue.

  19. Gee, Don, that’s why I said “This is what your “woman” has accomplished in the past two years” and “accused child rapist”. I didn’t say “convicted child rapist.” My comment should stand, by even the most moronical standards.

  20. Anon
    There was a quorum present. That night 34 made a quorum and when people counted the committee, they counted 34 and Mr. Sams as he is known hear only what he wants, spoke into the microphone and lied, saying the count was only 31.
    Good ol Ron. Still yelling from the background, with somebody else propping him up.

  21. Don, I was there. There was never a count taken of voting members. I am a voting member who was present. Tell me, if a quorum of 34 voting members were present, what, exactly was the vote tally of that 34?

    You can’t answer that because there was never a count taken of the votes of the voting members present.

    “That should read “the choice of the Republican people who voted in the primary.”

    The thread was about the republican party but it could have been made more clear.

  23. anon writes in #16: “This is what your “woman” has accomplished in the past two years:

    It is entirely irrelevant what Christine O’Donnell has done since the election OR whether she was a perfect or imperfect candidate.

    What is relevant and important is that the Party is not going to broaden its appeal by having balding old white men 71 years old not only running, but having the backing of the Party establishment OVER a woman, and also BASHING, smearing, and sliming a woman.

    Dear God, anon, have you ever MET any women????

    Marta Saltus, a hispanic tea party activist in Virginia, a woman, met me at CPAC in 2011, and spontaneously described her anger — as a woman — over the treatment of Christine O’Donnell, Sarah Palin, and others.

    Marta exclaimed energetically: “THEY ARE ATTACKING *ME*” when the GOP establishment attacks Christine O’Donnell, Michelle Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Sharron Angle, etc.

    Anon, men and women are different. News flash.

    You may want to insist that you are picking on only just one woman, not the others.

    That’s not how women think or feel.

    You show the world a balding old white man bashing the woman, and all the party establishment bashing the woman….

    …. and then you hope to win the woman’s vote for the Republican Party?

    I may have a lot to learn about women, but EVEN I understand how women look at things like that.

  24. What are some of the sensitivities, hurt feelings, sore spots, and open wounds that women have in our modern life? (And if I am elightening anyone about women, you are really in trouble.)

    In American modern life, women feel their contributions, achievements, status, and qualifications are not taken seriously, denigrated, and devalued compared to men.

    So what does the GOP do? The establishment attacks a woman over whether she is “good enough” to compare to a man.

    DUH! The one thing that most women feel angry and insecure about — being unfairly compared with men — the GOP insiders advertise on a national scale.

    BRILLIANT, eh? Republican insiders confirm, reinforce, and emphasize the very thing that most American women are defensive about: Women aren’t good enough to measure up to a man.

    You want to say, but in this case it’s true. WHO CARES? you are still telling all woman voters not only in Delaware but nationwide that women are de-valued, smeared, and attacked.

    You want to make a fine distinction between THIS women and otehr women. Women don’t look at it that way. They don’t see the distinction.

    How can I say that? Well woman Republican candidate, Gerarda Culipher, leader of the Northern Virginia Women’s Caucus, was just expounding at great length about this at the tea paty Christmas party on Dec. 7. Several men were pointing out fine distinctions like this about Ken Cuccinelli’s looming race for Governor, and Gerarda was laughing and explaining to the men “YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND WOMEN.” http://votesmart.org/candidate/biography/134536/gerarda-culipher?flavour=mobile&utm_source=votesmart&utm_medium=mobile-link&utm_campaign=flavourswitch
    Women look at how men treat women as a general proposition. They will NOT assume that you would treat other women better. They see you treating one woman badly, and they will NOT charitably imagine that your treatment of other women would necessarily be any different.

    Meanwhile, women in America feel that they are not viewed as professionals, but as objects. So what do the GOP insiders do? (And trust me, I know who did what. I know the New Jersey campaign operative who brokered the “Gawker” article. I know him personally.)

    The GOP insiders attack the woman in sexual terms — confirming the worst resentments, fears, and anger of American women.

    Men are valued for their ideas and their contributions.

    Women are viewed only as body parts.

    That’s the fear.

    And that is the message that the GOP — with Delaware as ground zero — DAMAGED THE ENTIRE NATION’S REPUBLICANS WITH. The damage was not limited within the borders of Delaware.

    Can someone tell me what new idea Mike Castle ever had in 30 years of sucking on the government teat?

    What did Mike Castle ever accomplish other than living off the taxpayers? (No, I don’t count taking up space in elected office as an accomplishment.)

    So balding old white men simply holding office — a product of the old boy’s club – is portrayed as valuable.

    The woman actually doing things, and mostly on her own dime, as de-valued.

    Now, imagine having a conversation with a woman voter as to why the Republican Party offers a welcome place for women?

  25. As far as Mike Castle’s accomplishments, he was an attorney that was part of a practice, and who also opened his own lawfirm, he’s a businessman who has owned several small business in Delaware, and he is currently working in the private sector. He also held several elected positions in Delaware, he was the last governor to reduce the size of Delaware’s government, and Ronald Reagan honored him on several occasions for his fiscal agenda in Delaware. Reagan dubbed Castle “The Gipper’s Clipper.”

    Now, Mr. Moseley, show us all one quote from the state party or Mike Castle where Christine O’Donnell was attacked for being a woman.

    You can’t, because it never happened.

    O’Donnell was attacked and criticized for being a fiscal mess, distorting the truth about her education, and for her off the wall on the record comments. She was never attacked for her gender by any Republican.

    O’Donnell, however, did attack Castle’s sexuality on several occasions, telling him to “put on your manpants” and saying that the election wasn’t a “bake sale.” Then there were the claims that came out of her campaign that Castle was gay and “cheating on his wife with a man.” And yes, I was told that Castle was gay by several staffers, both paid and volunteer, on her campaign.

    If you want to claim someone was sexist during the 2010 Senate race, that would clearly be Christine O’Donnell.

    During the 2010 election in Delaware there was a woman on the statewide ticket who was attacked for being a woman, and that was Michelle Rollins. Rollins, an accomplished attorney and businesswoman, was accused of only accomplishing anything because she married a rich man. She was called a “dried up former beauty queen” was accused of breaking up her husband’s marriage, and was called a “golddigger”.

    Christine O’Donnell never spoke one word in Rollins defense.

    Now, one more time, show us all one quote from a Delaware Republican or Mike Castle that attacks O’Donnell for being a woman. Put up or shut up. ONE QUOTE.

  26. “They see you treating one woman badly, and they will NOT charitably imagine that your treatment of other women would necessarily be any different.”

    I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Jon is right on this. It’s why Joe Biden had to be very cautious debating Sarah Palin, in a way he certainly wasn’t when debating Paul Ryan. Think about it — Biden treated Ryan, who has been in Congress for years, as if he were a greenhorn. He didn’t dare do that to Palin, who had less experience than Ryan, because it would have looked like he was beating up on a woman.

    In the same spirit, the Castle team’s contemptuous treatment of O’Donnell generated a good bit of sympathy for her. I don’t know if sympathy votes provided the winning margin — I think not — but it might have kept at home people who in previous years might have cast a vote for good ol’ Mike.

  27. “Can someone tell me what new idea Mike Castle ever had in 30 years of sucking on the government teat? What did Mike Castle ever accomplish other than living off the taxpayers?”

    And right here you see why not knowing Delaware makes you look uninformed and irrelevant to the rest of us.

    Mike Castle is the brains behind the State quarters program. Yes, I know he is widely ridiculed for it in recent years. But it’s a nearly unparalleled accomplishment. From Wikipedia:

    “The 50 State Quarters program became the most successful numismatic program in history, with roughly half of the U.S. population collecting the coins, either in casual manner or as a serious pursuit. The U.S. federal government so far has made additional profits of $3.0 billion from collectors taking the coins out of circulation.”

    I challenge you to name any other member of Congress who implemented a program that raised $3 billion in revenue for the federal government — not saved that amount, but actually gave the government a new revenue source.

    Mike Castle’s “living off the taxpayers” has cost the taxpayers, first of Delaware and then of the U.S., maybe, at the outside, $3 million. The program he championed almost singlehandedly raised $3 billion. I would say “you do the math,” but most people don’t, so here: That’s a 1,000-to-1 return on investment.

    You find me someone who has done better.

    Okay, class, once again NOTICE the CHANGE THE SUBJECT TACTIC practiced by the liberal in his native habitat (hiding behind a false name).

    This is worth pointing out because it is such a consistent “staple” of Democrats and leftists.

    Notice the SHIFT in the idea from what I discussed to a completely different idea, though with a surface appearance of similarity.

    The other aspect of the scam is the loud intensity of the response on the WRONG idea.

    The tactic fools some people partly because the loud angry nature of the response is designed to DISTRACT you from the fact that the liberal has changed the subject and is now debating an entirely different concept.

  29. Geezer writes: “The U.S. federal government so far has made additional profits of $3.0 billion from collectors taking the coins out of circulation.”

    WHAT??????

    You claim the Treasury made a “profit” because people are sitting on quarters — that they can AND DO spend as actual money any time they feel like it?

    Hoo, boy. Liberals have no idea what “profit” is.

    Sounds like Mike Castle needs to be locked up right next to Bernie Madoff.

    Hundreds of billions of dollars of US currency are being held by foreign countries and foreign banks as reserves.

    So you call it a “profit” because the cost of printing the dollar bills — the cost of the ink and the paper and the labor — is less than $1 ??????

    This is magic money that would make Bernie Madoff blush.

    Coins and currency are a LIABILITY to the US Government: The US Treasury literally owes that money as a debt.

    So Mike Castle is a big government liberal who dreamed up a boondoggle to spend government money.

    But any time little Johnny wants to buy his girlfriend $9 a month of birth chontrol, those quarters will be SPENT as ordinary money.

  30. To anon in #28:

    The only phrase that matters in everything you posted — especially to the low-information voter is the woman was attacked.

    As I already said before hand, antcipating the argument, you believe that it matters WHY the woman was attacked.

    It doesn’t. Especially to the low-information voter, who only casually watches the news, the Republican party made up of a bunch of old white dudes attacked the woman.

    Is that the image that the Republican Party believes will win over independents and persuadable Democrats?

    Balding old white guy attacks the woman.

    Independents come flocking to vote for the balding old white guy.

    Is that how the Republican party can win over independents?

    WHY was the woman attacked? Why not instead SUPPORT the woman candidate — don’t do any attacking at all — and reshape the image of the Republican Party?

    What if in 2008 the DEGOP had started working with Christine O’Donnell instead of attacking her? What if instead of Priscilla Rakestraw “losing” the Republican National Convention tickets issued to Christine O’Donnell as the US Senate nominee, the party had worked with her to perfect her as a candidate (starting back in 2008)?

    What if the DEGOP had celebrated the nomination of the first US Senator from Delaware in the First State’s history.

    You are focused on WHY you attacked the woman.

    The question is WHY do any attacking at all?

    “Don, I was there. There was never a count taken of voting members. I am a voting member who was present. ”

    I was there and was up front when the count was taken and heard the count of 34 being relayed to Mr. Sams. I also heard him when he took one step to the microphone and said that 31 committeepersons were present and said it wasn’t a quorum. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was standing less than five feet from Sams.
    We were at the same meeting and saw it differently, that’s not unusual. Ask any policeman what witnesses saw at an accident and you’ll get a different story every time. Every one of them will swear they’re telling the truth.

  32. Allright, I’m bored so I indulged in this site which has the relevance of the Brady Brunch from the 70’s. As you can see I’m really bored. I mean really bored.

    My comment’s will annoy some, but those who I annoy lack the testorone to call me (521-7600) nor will they will they reply on here.

    For you whiner’s about NCCO, you have an old population dependant upon Social Security – a gov’t program – whereas we here in NCCO have a Philadelphia suburb born and bred on D policies. Once you figure out how to stop realtor’s from selling houses to people from Chester county, then I will become straight.

    Once you whiner’s understand that 1/2 loaf is better then none then maybe the GOP may be getting somewhere; because as of today you have USS Carper, Coons, and US Rep Carney and they are all getting re-elected for a long time. A long time as Christine O’Donnell does her damndest to bilk the public…..again.

    The nice thing about me is that none of you can match my resume so therefore I can say whatever I want; which in this case is the truth. I was lit dropping in 1976 and my great uncle wrote the GI Bill. What were you trouble making, idiotic, wanna be politico’s doing since 1976?
    That’s right…1976.

    The answer is nothing. You redefine Johnnie-come-lateley’s; and that’s a shame but it’s the truth.

    If you had any decency, you’d respect our state and our party and pay your dues. You make the term carpetbagger look good.

    BTW: call me if you want respond for I will not answer any comment.

  33. So how did this thread become about O’Donnell and Castle? With respect, this thread is about the future not the past.

  34. Dave Jones, if you actually learned anything in all that time, why don’t you show us how to win elections in NCC.

    Perhaps when Republicans start getting better vote totals in NCC than in Sussex, someone should start listening a bit to the NCC wishy-washy crowd.

    Why do Republicans do better in Sussex if the establishment in NCC has all the right answers?

  35. Dave Jones, if you actually learned anything in all that time, why don’t you show us how to win elections in NCC.
    Moseley you are not us. You are an agitator from Virginia who proves again and again that you know nothing about Delaware or it’s politics.

  36. anon you are posting anonymously. You are SERIOUSLY questioning someone else’s right to comment while you hide behind an anonyous user name? How do we know you are not sitting in the Democrat National Committee headquarters in Washington, DC, posting on behalf of Joe Biden? You gotta be flippin kidding.

    But the POINT IS THE POINT: Not who made it.

    If the DEGOP insiders have a better plan for how to run and win Delaware elections… why is there not a hint of a shred of any evidence of it in the election results in NCC, as contrasted with Sussex?

    Instead of everyone bashing each other over the head with old campaign signs, why don’t you go out and SHOW US? And that logically should be a challenge to BOTH sides, to all sides.

    Stop griping. Roll up your sleeves and WIN.

    Anon, whomever you are, from whatever State you are posting from, there are only two things I ask of you in the Delaware Republican Party:

    1) WIN
    2) Stop blaming the wrong things and the wrong people for you not winning. You cannot hit the real target while aiming in the wrong direction. The archer will not hit the bullseye by aiming his bow and arrow at the spectators in the stands.

    Whomever starts winning elections gets bragging rights.

  37. Or, anon, are you posting from Sen. Carper’s district office in Delaware on Sen. Carper’s payroll? Are you posting from Joe Biden’s house in Wilmington?

    It would be hilariously funny that you post anonymously and then question others, if you were not sadly serious.

  38. anon
    Moseley’s comments are both substantive and informational. He makes a good point when he states that he uses his own name to comment, while you hide behind a moniker and attack him. His point is well takenb

  39. “You claim the Treasury made a “profit” because people are sitting on quarters — that they can AND DO spend as actual money any time they feel like it?”

    No, Jon, I don’t claim that. The people who do this for a living claim that.

    It’s called “seigniorage.” Since you don’t know anything about it, here’s the wikipedia link:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seigniorage

    Your ignorance is matched only by your arrogance.

    You still haven’t named me another member of Congress who added a dime in revenue to the federal government.

  40. “we here in NCCO have a Philadelphia suburb born and bred on D policies.’

    The counties in suburban Pa. — Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery — are all Republican, not Democratic, strongholds. Proximity to Philadelphia clearly does not turn everyone Democratic.
