Democrat Chris Coons Turns Down Delaware Tea Party Group Debate

Posted on | September 20, 2010 | 29 Comments

The First State Patriots, a major 9/12 group in Delaware, will be hosting a candidate forum tonight:

Our next meeting will be on Monday, September 20th at 6:30 p.m. at the Frog Hollow Golf Clubhouse in Middletown, DE. This month’s featured panel will be those candidates that successfully win their primaries on September 14th for national office.

Christine O’Donnell has accepted the invitation to appear at the First State Patriots event, while Democrat Chris Coons turned them down.

Remember that in their first debate Thursday — just two days after the primary, while Karl Rove was busy telling the world that O’Donnell wasn’t qualified to bring him a cup of coffee — the supposedly unqualified Republican candidate held her own against Coons:

The forum was an early test for O’Donnell, who . . . has never endured anything close to the national media storm that has descended upon her since she defeated Castle on Tuesday.
At times the pressure showed, but O’Donnell appeared to hold her own Thursday despite the intense glare. She repeatedly emphasized her concerns over the growth of government and stressed “private-sector solutions” on a range of questions.

That debate was at the Jewish Community Center in Wilmington — home turf for the Democrat — and he has so far turned down every other opportunity to debate until an Oct. 6 event sponsored by the Wilmington News-Journal.

As Byron York pointed out Friday, as executive of New Castle County, Coons raised property taxes three times in four years — he never met a tax he wouldn’t increase!

Tell me again why O’Donnell can’t beat this bald-headed tax-raising Democrat even worse than she beat the septuagenarian RINO all the “experts” said she couldn’t beat.

As of 3 a.m. O’Donnell’s $2 million fund-raising drive had hauled in $1,879,486.36.

And if you want me to cover Christine O’Donnell at that Tea Party event in Delaware tonight — a 282-mile round trip — please hit the tip jar.

    It is time to ignore our conservative breathern who do not support O’Donnell (don’t forget but don’t give them attention either) and simply support O’Donnell and attack Cooms.

    So when might you be… giving up on O’Donnell? Like one week before the midterms when you might find that the candidate in whom you invest so much of your energy and misguided grassroots political capital still lags by a considerable margin even after all your attacks on her dangerously liberal, more pathetic opponent?

    Give up now and save the grief! LMAO!

    Patterico is trying to make amends by posting this report on how Coons harassed other liberals who had the termerity to disagree with him. Coons has engaged in abuse of power against dissent via building code violations:

    One might think that at $3751 fine would be enough even for Coons. After all, we aren’t challenging the County any more. But no, they are after us again. This time, Coon’s people accuse us of not having a proper permit for repairing our roof. So, they bring at least TEN separate charges for the same alleged offense. They allege one per month for at least ten months. (It’s hard to tell as the documents are so confusing and innacurate.) Read the charges here.

    waylay, I do not live in Delaware. I will point out what a scumbag Chris Coons is regarless of whether he wins or loses this Senate seat. If it did live in Delaware I would vote for O’Donnell.

    But you are welcome to show up here on November 2 and enjoy lots and lots of pudding. Oh and wipe your chin you little slut.

    ‘Cuz Lord Karl said so. So there!

    Coons has yet to respond to a request to reschedule:

    Okay, technically, “When shall we meet again? In fire, in thunder, or in rain?” is a scheduling request…

    Coons’s liberal politics in the US Senate may not be a bigger threat to your conservative sensitives compared to the influence of Delaware’s former senator Joe Biden had, right?

    BTW Delaware voters got O’Donnell’s ass handed to her (without even the benefit of these new revelations about her nuttery, lies and personal finances) when she ran against Joe Biden in 2008.

    What makes you think you got a Mike Castle Scott Brown going on in here? Evil Coons must be cleverer than clueless Coakley, right?

    Like O’Donnell, is you head so muddled with beautiful juices leaking from all the overflowing tea pots from the pissing matches of the squeaking mouses huddled in the thought chambers of reward reverberating in the rodent rains of your oncoming rapture?

    Exit Question: As of now, the GOP can gains anywhere from 30-70 Lower House seats. On Nov. 2 will you consider it a “victory” if you gain say 38 seats to just “lose” the House? What will be preferable for your long term Tea Party interests (2012 and beyond), losing the House by 2 seats or gaining it by 2 seats?

    That curly 80’s hair.
    That virginal seductive stare
    that strips my conscience bare
    it’s witchcraft.

    Castle had no defense for it.
    The tea is too intense for it.
    What good would commonsense for it do?

    ‘Cause it’s witchcraft!
    Wicked witchcraft.
    And although I know it’a strictly taboo

    when you arouse the need in me
    my heart says “yes indeed” in me
    Proceed with what you’re lead in ‘me to!

    It’s such an ancient pitch
    but one I wouldn’t switch
    ‘Cause there’s no nicer witch than you!

    You might train a butterfly to compete in the Olympics, but you can’t cure O’Donnell.

    I love when butterflies flex their wings.

    What a lovely image…

    You are a stunning butterfly, Joe!

    O’Donnell and Palin sittin’ in a tree K-I-S-S-I-N-G! Hope I didn’t just invade your personal space. 🙂

    You are a couple of witches. Do you understand how the witches work? Hope you get why they burned them. It’s okay, though. They won’t do it this time around! Thank god.

    Out of the ashes, we rise… women of power to light the truth in every *I*.

    Must be snowing in hell. [insert insane laughter (or at least a couple of chuckles)]

    When the Dims have nothing of substance to argue (and they don’t, ever ), then they resort to the personal smear.

    I’m supposed to care about witchcraft and masturbation when the Dims have run the economy into the ditch?

    Good luck with that.

    Even better: Obama is now upside down in Delaware with 46% approval vs 48% who disapprove – in a state he won by 62%.

    O’Donnell should invite him to come campaign for Coons . . .
