Chris Coons: Deeply Flawed Candidate

Image shamelessly borrowed from Kilroy's Delaware.

The National GOP establishment can get off its high horse in Delaware and focus its attacks on the Democrat in the race for the U.S. Senate seat that was recently vacated by Joe Biden (plagiarist, gaffe-machine, potty mouth, etc).

Karl Rove, I'm thinking about YOU as I write this.

You establishment guys can probably Google just as well as I can, but I'm sure you're very busy, so I've done a little work to help give you a head start. Here's some interesting stuff for your perusal...

This one was written by a Delaware liberal. There's quite a bit information about Chris Coons' checkered past as it relates to the details of his shady campaign finance history. I don't know how much of this information could be used effectively against Chris Coons, but the phrases "class G felony" and "class A misdemeanor" grab my attention! Take a look:

Another one from our liberal friends in Delaware, this one focused on Chris Coons's problems with truth in advertising. Key words: "disingenuous," "false," "incompetent" and "ineffective..."


Here's one from our team:

Lies: "In 2004, when Coons first ran for the job, he promised not to raise taxes. Since then he has raised taxes not once, not twice, but three times... Now, on his campaign Web site, Coons expresses deep concern about the federal government's 'runaway debt.' A number of his proposals to cut the deficit involve collecting more taxes." (Byron York, Washington Examiner)

Addendum II:

Chris Coons turned an inherited surplus and a firm no-tax pledge into multiple violations of said pledge and now Delaware’s most populous county is headed towards bankruptcy (by his own admission). (RedState)

Addendum III:

Chris Coons: A Rich Little Tax Raising Democrat

Addendum IV:

Chris Coons: Volunteer for Liberation Theology

Addendum V:

Leftist Activist in Delaware: Chris Coons Harassed Me Due to My Political Activism

Addendum VI:

More harassment by Coons

Cool quotes:

"Coons’ real problem in 2010 is that everyone knows him in the Democratic Caucus, and taxing and spending are his thing – and more so when the economy’s down, and the people are taking big hits in their own lives."

~ J.E. Dyer

“Chris Coons squandered the largest budget surplus in New Castle County history and then left county taxpayers with the bill. In fact, after promising not to raise taxes, Coons was responsible for the largest property tax hike New Castle County residents had ever seen.”

~ Tom Ross

“Through massive taxes and spending, Chris Coons nearly led the families of New Castle County off a financial cliff. Now Coons wants to bring his tax-and-spend record to Washington so he can rubberstamp the Democrats’ failed economic agenda. Delaware families deserve an independent-minded Senator who will fight for checks and balances in Washington, and there’s no doubt that voters will hold Coons accountable for his reckless fiscal record this November."

~ Amber Marchand


  • Seriously: O'Donnell Can't Beat the “Bearded Marxist”?
  • CNBC did an analysis of America's top states for doing business in 2010. Delaware was ranked 42nd in the nation. Delaware Democrats Blame Chris Coons.
  • How Chris Coons Slowly Screwed New Castle County
  • Chris Coons, Millionaire. Unemployed Delawareans are so impressed (not).
  • Not One Single Year With A Balanced Budget Yet Chris Coons Wants To Lead In DC?

Hey, Rove, take a break from the canibalism; chew on Chris Coons!

I am handing her ever bit of info I can to her on Coons, including this. Thanks RK. :)
FYI, as of 8:45pm yesterday, with in 24 hours after her victory, she has raised $750,000. NICE!

MA: Thanks. I hope I can find some things that help. Coons is a virtual unknown so it's not easy to find information. Maybe Karl Rove can help us out.

Thanks for all of the info on Coons. I linked to this over at TCL FB.

"Maybe Karl Rove can help us out."
hmmmm I have been a little leery of his first name, IF you catch my drift.

Looks like the "Bearded Marxist" governed his county according to form. This nominee from Team Deficit must be defeated.
