A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
I continue to read, hear, and see reports by the Mainstream Media that Christine O’Donnell’s win Tuesday, in Delaware, insures the Democrats will maintain control of the Senate. Well, I’m not so sure -- and I think the liberal-socialists in the media, in the Republican Party, and in the Democratic Party are fooling themselves if they choose to believe the race in Delaware will determine control of the US Senate.
Mark Tapscott has an article titled “Two initial lessons to be gleaned from O'Donnell victory” at The Washington Examiner in which he, too, explains his reservations about control of the senate being insured by the O’Donnell Victory.
In his article, Mr. Tapscott says the following:
Second, right or wrong, there is no more divisive figure on the Right, for the moment, than O'Donnell. On the issues, she portrays herself as a solid conservative and of course touted her endorsement by Sarah Palin. The problem with O'Donnell is thus not with her ideological orientation, it is strictly because there are serious questions about her financial record and ethical code.”
I just don’t buy it -- and I don’t think America’s intensely outraged voters will either. Frankly, it smacks of a pre-planned effort by the democrats/mainstream media to demoralize conservative voters before the showdown in November. But it is doomed to failure.
One thing I’ like to address before I close this rant: For those of you insistent on supporting the Democratic Party -- just as your parents and grandparents did -- and as you have done so faithfully over your lifetime, please understand -- this Democratic Party is NOT, I repeat, IS NOT, the Democratic Party of your forefathers and not even the Democratic Party of your earlier years. The Democratic Party today is a polyglot of Socialists, Marxists, Progressives, Communist, and what we have come to know as “socialist-liberals.” It has shown itself to be the enemy of freedom, of liberty, indeed, of the Constitution, and it (the Democratic Party), we believe, is determined to transform America into a socialist dictatorship. They have already begun the process.
