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.
