NY Daily News Digs Up 2 RINO Dinosaurs

From the New York Daily Worker News:

GOP bigs: If Republicans fail to win Senate, blame Tea Party & Christine O’Donnell, Sharron Angle

By Michael Mcauliff

WASHINGTON – If Democrats keep control of the Senate, the Republicans can blame it on the Tea Party.

"The Tea Party has helped in the House – [but] probably cost us the Senate," said longtime GOP campaign guru Stu Spencer.

Mr. Spencer is a dinosaur. He managed Nelson Rockefeller’s presidential campaign of 1964. He was the Deputy Chairman for Gerald Ford’s Presidential re-election campaign. He was also in charge of shaping Dan Quayle’s image in 1988.

Do we need to go on?

That’s because several mainstream GOP candidates got boiled by politically extreme Tea Partyers [sic] in the Senate primaries – potentially turning off independent voters:

Mind you, this is supposed to be a news article and not an editorial.

* Colorado was left with Ken Buck, who suggested a jury might conclude a rape victim had "buyer’s remorse."
* Nevada got Sharron Angle, who avoids the press, argued for privatizing the Veterans Affairs Department and panned unemployment checks as welfare.
* Delaware landed Christine O’Donnell, a former anti-masturbation crusader made infamous for her past declaration that she "dabbled" in witchcraft.

Each of which are examples of disinformation that would have made even the KGB blush for shame. But nobody likes to see the world pass them by.

There are also Tea Party darlings like Rand Paul in Kentucky and Joe Miller in Alaska who left the GOP with tough contests where they should have cruised.

Asked if the GOP would be taking control of the Senate with a more mainstream lineup, veteran GOP strategist Ed Rollins had one word: "Yes."

Another dinosaur, whose last victory was also his first, with Ronald Reagan’s re-election in 1984.

Were it not for the Tea Party the Obama administration would be on its way to a historic mandate – rather than a historic slap down.

But you can’t teach born losers new tricks.

    I will never ever vote for a Rino again. They are just as bad as the Dems.

    If you are not conservative you will never get my vote.

    Just the NY Pravda whistling past the graveyard.

  3. proreason says:

    The Slimes still performs a public service.

    If you can’t figure out the stupid position, just listen to them. And then do the opposite.

    If more than two human beings actually believe a word of it then we ARE in trouble.

    The GOP was belly button lint on a fly two years ago. If not for the lightning that struck the Chicago Stock market floor and the spark that lit the flame of liberty, there might be little left to complain about.

    If anyone thinks it couldn’t have been worse, consider full blown card check, cap & trade etc..

    GOP owes it to the tea party, and the country to ‘man up’.

    I talked about it here too:

    Is it just me or wasn’t the news about how the senate wasn’t in play just a few weeks back – too few seats up for election with too few Democrats exposed? Is it just me or did Karl Rove and Charles Krauthammer absolutely trash O’Donnell after the primary and the RNC publicly threatened to withold funds for her campaign, and now it’s HER fault she’s behind? Is it just me or is it extremely unusual for a Senate Majority leader to be knocked off by a challenger?

    Amazing that we are now to the point with the MSM that anything short of 80-90 seats picked up in the House and a less than a 10 seat pick up in the Senate is somehow being represented as a “failure” for the Republicans and the fault of the TEA Party.

    My bet is without the TEA Party, we’d be looking at essentially status quo in both Houses with a slight margin going to the Republicans (as is normal in midterms).

    If O’Donnell and Angle both win, we might see a significant and positive shift to the right of establishment Republicans, but electing Democrats with an “R” for their party affliation will not help the Republicans any longer, and may be the long term demise of the GOP.

  6. Perdido says:

    What the Establishment Republicans (Rove & Crew) don’t understand is that we are fed up with winning and nothing changing. Thanks, Karl. We’ll take our chances with our candidates. And when your candidates don’t perform we’ll do the exact same thing we did starting in 2006. And 2008.

    The question is: How can these guys remain so clueless after 3 election cycles?
