Chris Coons is a liar who obviously reads my blog (UPDATED)

That’s the only conclusion I can come to this morning after reading this story from The Hill on the first debate between Coons and Christine O’Donnell:

Coons appeared steady Thursday, if not a bit boring — something that could actually prove an asset in this general election contest. He emphasized his experience as county executive while drawing contrasts between himself and O’Donnell without truly going on the attack.


Borrowing a line from Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.), Coons suggested the race would be fought on issues important to Delaware voters, rather than in the national media spotlight. “It’s often said that this is Joe Biden’s seat,” Coons said. “It’s not. It’s Delaware’s seat.”

That’s what he said last night.

As I posted yesterday, this is what Coons said earlier this week in a post at Daily Kos:

Make no mistake – Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint, Michelle Bachmann, and the Tea Party Express will invest to make sure O’Donnell joins them in Washington.

We cannot let that happen.

We cannot let Joe Biden’s seat fall into ultraconservative hands – into the grasp of a candidate who is out of touch with Delaware and the challenges Americans face every day. [Emphasis added]

How Scott Brown-esque of Mr. Coons–downplaying the image of Democratic entitlement and dynastic politicians in their ranks when he’s talking to Delaware voters in the debate, but reasserting that Democrats need to hold “Biden’s seat”, while talking to the moonbats.   All in the span of about two days.

There are words to describe people like this.  “Hypocrite” and “liar” both come to mind.

    I’d call it duplicity rather than prevarication and marginally so at that.

    The fact is, it was Biden’s seat and Biden is liberal and there is a big fight over a majority in the Senate. Pointing that out to potential doners at DailyKos is both true and smart. Telling the people at the voters forum it is the people’s seat is the truth. You seam personally offended by this. So be it.

      I think you misread the post. At the debate, he said the following:

      It’s often said that this is Joe Biden’s seat,” Coons said. “It’s not. It’s Delaware’s seat.”

      The implication being that others are saying that this is “Joe Biden’s seat”. He asserts that “it’s not”, that is to say, others are saying it (with the added implication of dynastic and political entitlement) but I’m certainly not.

      Which is a flat out lie, as he said the complete opposite approximately 48 hours earlier. The implications are quite clear.

      Now if what you’re getting at is that politicians need to say one thing to Group A and something else to Group B, maybe your comment will make sense. Maybe. Let’s put it this way– if Christine O’Donnell had made the same comments, this would lead Keith Olbermann’s broadcast tonight. But she didn’t, so it won’t. The only difference here is that Coons has a “D” after his name. So he can get away with being a liar.
