Don't Do the Democrats' Job for Them!

I've never been a fan of Karl Rove, but he's really showing his petty side right now in his harsh words about Christine O'Donnell.  What I'd like to hear is something along the lines of  "Well, she's not my first choice for a Republican candidate, but she won the primary and of course I'll fully support her."  

Instead, what we're hearing from Rove and other members of the Republican establishment is what I'd expect from a Democrat:  pointing out O'Donnell's baggage, questioning her ethics and, most egregiously, self-defeating talk about how Republicans have no chance of winning that seat now.   What's up?  Are the Republican leaders simply misunderstanding the public mood or do they fear losing their own power? 

The people of Delaware spoke, Mr. Rove.  Republicans would do well to heed their message.  I believe voters are sick and tired of wishy-washy Republican candidates who might as well be Democrats when you look at their voting record.  What choice did the voters of Delaware have?  Mike Castle voted for cap and tax, for heaven's sake!  How does it help us stop the Obama agenda if we elect Republicans who don't have the courage to stand up and try to save the country from this left-wing lunacy? 

As a Texan, it's anathema to me to wave the white flag without a fight.  We may indeed lose the Delaware seat to a Democrat, but let's make sure we don't hand it to them on a silver platter.  If the National Republican Senatorial Committee won't allocate funds to help O'Donnell, then we, the people, should send her campaign whatever we can afford.  Fight with all you have - the stakes are too high to declare defeat before the fight has even begun!
