DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT MARKELL ACTUALLY DID? HE DIDN’T JUST WIN AN ELECTION

FINALLY!  A GOVERNOR WHOM  WE DON’T HAVE TO  BE EMBARRASSED ABOUT…AND A GOVERNOR WHO WILL NOT BE ON THE SIDE OF SOME OF WORST STATE LEGISLATORS IN THE COUNTRY.

JACK MARKELL ACCOMPLISHED WHAT MOST GOOD PEOPLE IN DELAWARE HAVE BEEN WISHING FOR FOR DECADES.  What complaints have we have for as long as you can remember?  Try these:  “We have to prevent those self-serving crooked old farts from screwing the people”. (That’s  the way I prefer to sum it up.    We all know what that  over-the-hill-gang has been doing to us….hiding bills in desk drawers/ stopping really good legislation from being passed/ introducing sneaky under-handed deals, like buying golf courses with our money–buying 15 million dollar buildings we don’t need, just to give public cash gifts to banks—letting energy companies make huge underserved profits at our expense/ making sure that eminent domain is allowed to stay—not doing anything about things like a horrid prison system—some  real police agency scandals—a despicable psychiatric facility operation—giving themselves huge raises at our expense–allowing us to have one of the worst public school systems in the country; and so on, and so on, and so on.  Is there any one in this State who doesn’t yet realize that the names of these old farts are: Thurman Adams/ Harris McDowell/ Tony DeLuca/ Bob Venables/ Nancy Cook/ Bob Marshall/ Patty Blevins/Dave McBride/ Margaret Rose Henry.

Most of us know that the really good people in the Democratic majority state sanate are: Karen Peterson–Dave Sokola–George Bunting, Bruce Ennis.   These good guys were constantly defeated and held down and prevented from doing good by the sleezeball slugs mentioned above, because they had all the senate power leadership positions.  

WELL, NO MORE!   Oh, those bad guys will still be in the Senate…but let’s make sure they have no leadership power.  With Markell as Governor, those creeps will not have the power of the Governor’s office behind them.  They hate the fact that Jack Markell will be their new Governor. They didn’t want him to even run for Governor, and tried to bribe him not to run.  They suppoted the Minnerize John Carney.  They worked like hell to make sure Carney won, and make sure Markell lost….those bad-guy state senators wanted their power basis security with a Carney victory….they didn’t get, now make that they pay the price

WELL SCREW YOU ALL, BAD GUYS.  Now you will have to work under a Governor who is not in your pocket…who will not bow to your every wish…who will do whatever it takes to make sure you don’t get away the old ways of hiding bills, etc.  etc…..Markell is not going to be thinking too kindly of the senate crowd who hated him, and who  worked like hell against him.  Oh, I agree that Jack Markell is not going to be a revengeful get-even guy (like I would be).  He’s much too classy for that, BUT HE WILL SURE MAKE CERTAIN THAT YOU BAD GUYS DON’T RULE THE SENATE LIKE IT’S YOUR OWN SCHOOL YARD SAND BOX, WITH YOU AS THE BULLIES WHO RUN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.  You bad guys are all going to have forks stuck in you…..because you’re DONE!

Ok, next step required for genuine reform and change and progress and success.  STOP ANY AND ALL OF THOSE BAD GUYS FROM HAVING ANY LEADERSHIP POWER IN THE SENATE.  We can’t stop them from getting re-elected; BUT, JUST LIKE YOU DID TO GET MARKELL IN….YOU, THE VOTERS MUST DEMAND THAT ANY LEGISLATOR WHO WANTS YOUR VOTE IN THE NOVEMBER ELECTION HAS TO CONVINCE YOU THAT HE OR SHE WILL VOTE FOR NEW LEADERSHIP IN THE SENATE.  That’s right, contact your State Senator and tell him or her that the ony way they are going to get your vote is if they PROMISE TO VOTE FOR NEW SENATE LEADERSHIP.  Demand that the two top, most powerful people in the senate, MUST BE SELECTED FROM THESE PEOPLE: 

KAREN PETERSON/ and/or, DAVE SOKOLA/ and/or,  GEORGE BUNTING/  and/or, BRUCE ENNIS….OF COURSE, KAREN PETERSON BEING SENATE LEADER WOULD PUT A SMILE ON MY FACE FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.

It’s a new time, people/  Let’s perfect it now..and let’s be proud to be a Delawarean for once and for all.  ARE YOU WITH ME?

    Gerry I can understand your happines with the Primary but
    #1 The Republicans who voted in the Democratic Primary won it for Markell
    #2 The Election is not over Given Lee’s performance in the past and the fact that Jack probably did not win a majority of Democrats in the Primary
    we had better not count our chickens
    #3 In order to get anything done Markell will have to work with Adams venables Deluca McDowell etc. they are just not going to go away No matter your feelings for those folks They understand the #1 Rule in politics as preached by Tip Oneil “All Politics are Local” and these cats understand constituent service No more than Daniello is going anywhere Just because his guy lost the Primary. If his NEW guy wins the election he’ll still be in the catbird seat for a few more years
    The bottom line is Markell will need the Unions the City Civic activists and other groups that were pro Carney in the primary to enthusiasically get the vote out in November in order to win

    Andy…I agree and disagree….yes, the Republicans did help in a significant way……but let me use my insider informants for a minute…
    that fact Markell won and beat his owne leaders, along with others behind ther scenes things I know about….the establishment scared; realy scared….I know these guys well, and they admitted that they got a huge ass kicking in this election……there is no way they tought they would lose.
    Markell gets the push from things like the unions losing.
    They (unions) will start kissing a lot of butt (Markell’s). There are fences to be mended…BUT IT WILL BE THE BEATEN DEMS WHO WILL DO THE MENDING; NOT MARKELL.
    THERE ARE SO MANY WAYS THE GOVERNOR FROM YOUR OWN PARTY CAN “STICK IT TOO YOU”…..IF HE WANTS TO.
    Also, those dems now see that Markell has credibility with republicans. and that scares them even more….BELEIVE ME….THEY WILL COME BEGGING TO MARKELL…..I am so glad that Jack doesn’t owe them a thing…but THEY OWE HIM…AND HE WILL EXTRACT WHAT THEY OWE HIM. HE BEAT HIS OWN PARTY…AND THEY WILL LOSE A LOT MORE IF THEY DON’T TOTALLY COOPERATE WITH HIM……unions will bend over backwards to please him.
    beleive me…they will back him to the hilt—just to make nice, if for no other reason…
    WHEN YOU BEAT THE BIGGEST LEADERS AND THE BIGGEST SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS IN YOUR OWN PARTY….YOU’RE TOP DOG…AND THEY WON’T FORGET IT…..AND IF THEY TRY TO FORGET IT, JACK WILL MAKE SURE THEY DON’T FORGET WHO WON.

    I have no doubt about the fence mending. It disturbs me when I read the various Blogs most of whom supported Markell to the point of really trashing Carney persnonally thinkng that the war is won. They just won the first battle. A very significant battle but a battle none the less not the War the war is won on November. All of those EDs below the canl and in Northern NCC that went for Markell are traditionally Republican.
    I am not trying to down play Markell’s accomplishment because beating the party esablishment is un heard of. But we can’t count the chickens quite yet and it won’t take much if some of these groups are overconfident and do not get out the vote for Lee to pull an upset

  4. Gerry Fulcher Says:

    Good points…but blieve me, I know Bill Lee well….and it needed Carney to win the primary if he (Lee) were to have any real chance of winning…and that view comes from Lee himself.
    I had nothing to say against Carney personally…..I like him but he did NOTHING to even address any of the key issues which need changing for the last 8 years….so why should I have believed him about changing any of it. He owed it to himself and to Delaware to go against Minner is several issues…prison, state police/ psychiatric / wind energy/eminent domain/ He would have gained a tremendous amount of respect, if he had bucked Minner…it would have been gutsy…but it would have help sell himself as a reformer BEFORE he got labeled as “going along” with the party. He blew his chances because he was the living embodyment of Minner/ Adams/ McDowell/etc. etc etc. etc.

    Karen Peterson was originally a primary member of Carney For Governor. Committee…THEN SHE USED HER TERRIFIC ABILITY TO EVALUATE THINGS. AND AS USUAL….CAME OUT WITH THE RIGHT DECISION….
    MARKELL.
    You are right, this is only the start…but MARKELL WILL DO THINGS SO DIFFERENTLY…AND THAT WILL HOPEFULLY CATCH ON AS THE NEW “DELAWARE WAY”

    Carney—is FOR eminent domain/ AGAINST inepctor general/
    ATAINST a need to deal with the prisons/ AGAINST a need to investigate the Psyciatric Center. HE WAS MINNER WITH A MUSTACH…in fact I called him that on the air several times…..and three days later, he shaved it off….do you think there was any connection…or was merely trying NOT look like Protack?
    MARKEEL, AND MOST OF THE PEOPLE ARE FOR ALL THE RIGHT THINGS, AND AGAINST ALL THE BAD THINGS…AND CARENY IS JUST THE OPPOSITE.
