The Latest Performance from the DE GOP Clown Show

Filed in Delaware by on July 29, 2014

Remember in 2012 when Jeff Cragg and Sher Valenzuela perfected the technique of campaigning for a Delaware office someplace other than in Delaware? That was seriously awesome, even though I don’t see those SE PA votes tallied anywhere on the Delaware Department of Elections site. But I digress. This cycle, Kevin Wade is taking that technique of campaigning for Delaware votes someplace else To A Whole New Level. Kevin Wade has gone to Israel:

on a week-long fact-finding mission in Israel, on the ground right now (July 29). Wade is researching the situation on the ground and interviewing many. Kevin Wade is also a co-host with the Conservative Commandos Radio Show. Wade will be posting interviews on YouTube from the war zone in Israel.

BACKGROUND:
Businessman Kevin Wade was the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in 2012. He was persuaded to run again for U.S. Senate against Democrat U.S. Senator Chris Coons. Coons gained notoriety as Christine O’Donnell’s Democrat opponent in 2010 after O’Donnell won the Republican primary over Mike Castle. Kevin Wade has been endorsed across the board from Ron Paul to Sharron Angle. He worked for Rudy Guiliani’s Presidential campaign in 2008. Wade is an engineer who started out at Dupont and then founded Philadelphia Control Systems 30 years ago in New Castle, Delaware. He also co-hosts the Conservative Commandos Radio Show in Philadelphia on Mondays.

Kevin Wade went to work in a steel mill within days of high school graduation in Pennsylvania. He worked his way through college eventually earning a BS in Electrical Engineering at the University of Delaware. As a young employee of the DuPont Company Engineering Department his talents for problem solving and leading teams of people stood out.

He started his own engineering business at the age of 29 and continues to run it 30 years later. Philadelphia Control Systems, Inc. in Christiana, Delaware, is a professional engineering corporation specializing in the engineering, design and programming of information automation and process automation systems. He has worked on projects ranging from Amsterdam to Singapore.
He is not only a businessman who has created jobs, balanced the companys budgets, and regularly made a payroll, but is also a specialist as an engineer in careful and precise problem-solving. His 30 years in business inform him of the need for government to be a respectful junior partner in the economy, not an opponent or master to job creators.

Fighting for U.S. energy independence, Kevin Wade has personal experience most politicians lack. It is believed that he will be the only U.S. Senator who has actually worked on an oil rig in the open ocean (in the North Sea), and certainly the only U.S. Senator who has climbed 5 stories down the side of an oil tanger in pitch dark to a wating boat. When Wade works to provide the energy to strengthen America’s economy and foreign policy, create jobs, and lower gas prices at the pump, Wade draws on professional experience. He is not influenced by the spin of think tanks, activists, lobbyists, or junk science. He also is deeply conscious of the natural beauty of the Delaware River visible from his quaint hometown of New Castle, Delaware, flowing into the Chesapeake Bay, and the need to maintain human balance with America’s natural beauty.

Mr. Wade has traveled the world professionally and is known everywhere for his fair dealings and trusted results. This taught Mr. Wade a deep respect for different people from different cultures. These experiences have also formed a firm belief in the exceptional character of the American people and the historic purpose of the American nation.

Kevin Wade became active in Republican party activities in 2004. He worked as a volunteer for candidates in literature drops, candidate walks, phone calls and as-needed campaign web site designs and deployment. He has Co-Chaired the GOP Colonial Region’s signature fund raiser, “Separation Day” for many years.

In 2007, Mr. Wade became Chairman of the 17th Representative District and also joined the GOP State Executive Committee. Kevin wade was invited to present his “Resolution in Support of the Troops” to the assembled delegates of the Republican Party State Convention. That sentimental and intimate speech brought tears to the eyes of many in the audience and Mr. Wade received an extended and roaring standing ovation. This led to frequent and, to this day, continuing invitations to address Republicans across the state.

In 2008, Kevin became the New Castle County Chair of the Rudy Giuliani Presidential Campaign. He served frequently as a surrogate speaker at statewide events and GOP debates. Also, in 2008 Mr. Wade gave the seconding speech at convention in support of the gubernatorial nomination of Judge Bill Lee, the GOP candidate that year.

The GOP State Convention in 2009 invited Mr. Wade to address the assembled delegates. He spoke about “What We Believe.” His simple and straightforward speech about our core conservative principles received another standing ovation. Kevin Wade campaigned for the Party endorsement as US Congressional candidate in 2010.

Mr. Wade spoke to the 2011 State Convention. He alerted all to the pending national financial crisis, identified the road to real recovery as a conservative path and passionately condemned the bitter legacy of Democrat failures in Delaware and across the US. Kevin concluded the speech and again earned a raucous standing ovation.

Mr. Wade has spoken before countless Rotary, Ruritan and Lions Club service organizations, including on tax reform and a complete overhaul of the Federal tax code.

Mr. Wade and his family are long-time residents of the historic City of New Castle, Delaware. His wife Gail is a tenured Professor of Nursing in the College of Health and Nursing Sciences at the University of Delaware.

Mr. Wade enjoys salt water fishing and snow skiing. Additionally, he is an amateur historian focusing on the economic, political and military histories of nations and their leaders. Abraham Lincoln is a figure of particular interest and admiration.

Right? While everyone else in Delaware who wants to be elected in November is out door knocking, lit dropping and putting up pictures of everyone they’ve shaken hands with on Facebook, Kevin Wade is burnishing his fake journalist cred by “fact finding” in Israel. Apparently, the US of A doesn’t have enough big problems to do any fact finding on. I mean, it’s tough finding people who are unemployed to find out how the job market is not serving them. And I guess that someone with the ambition to be a Senator from Delaware won’t be meeting with the CEOs of too big to fail banks here to do any fact finding on how they are still looking to dump their shenanigans on taxpayers. Heck, there’s really an immigration issue that actually impacts many Americans that apparently is no where near as urgent as going to Israel to join the propaganda machine. Josh Marshall talks about the defacto alliance between Likud and the GOP today:

But Netanyahu has made the de facto alliance between the Likud or what remains of the faction he owns (that part gets very complicated) and the US Republican party increasingly explicit. And that’s dangerous. Dangerous for all concerned but particularly for Israel. I wish Netanyahu and his government had a better sense of the toxic repercussions of mobilizing GOP proxies as cut-outs in this way. It should go without saying that the Israel-US alliance becomes more brittle as it becomes more clearly identified with a single US political party.

But before Kevin Wade makes himself part of the problem, he needs to win an office. Which is isn’t going to do from Israel. Or with Jonathan Moseley, whose track record in Delaware is a totally losing one.

    How much would you trust a Delaware candidate whose bio states that the Delaware River flows into the Chesapeake Bay?

  2. cassandra_m says:

    :lol:

    That’s *got* to be the Moseley contribution, right there.

  3. BullMoose says:

    He’s gone commando?

  4. Jason330 says:

    Oh lord.

    Kevin Wade has been endorsed across the board from Ron Paul to Sharron Angle.

    That covers it. Everyone from “A” to “D” endorsed him.

    the natural beauty of the Delaware River visible from his quaint hometown of New Castle, Delaware, flowing into the Chesapeake Bay, and the need to maintain human balance with America’s natural beauty.

    D’erp.

    he will be the only U.S. Senator who has actually worked on an oil rig in the open ocean (in the North Sea), and certainly the only U.S. Senator who has climbed 5 stories down the side of an oil tanger in pitch dark to a wating boat.

    An oil tanger…? Go on.

    TEARS! Tears Jerry!!

  5. SussexAnon says:

    No mention of just how toxic those naturally beautiful Delaware River waters are in his quaint hometown of New Castle?

    Nothing says “Delaware, Huzzah!” like your communications coming from a (703) area code. Isn’t that near the beltway?

  6. cassandra_m says:

    And I am provided this Duke Brooks flashback.

    All of that vaunted DuPont management experience has rather utterly failed Kevin Wade here, right? He would never be able to hire these two if he was still employed by DuPont.

  7. Cletus says:

    Duke Brooks joins Jon Moseley as the Communications team for the Wade for US Senate Campaign in 2014. All they need now is an endorsement from Don Ayotte, a journalistic giant himself, sprinkle in a little Bill Colley and banjo music, and we have the makings of some great times as we head toward September 9th.

  8. Geezer says:

    He’s in the “war zone” in Israel! He worked on an oil rig! He clung to a rickety ladder inches above the sea, “wating” for a boat! He’s…the Most Interesting Man in Delaware!

    “I don’t always run for office, but when I do, I prefer to do it from Israel.”

  9. cassandra_m says:

    Today, Geezer wins the internets!

  10. puck says:

    Next stop, the International House of Pancakes.

  11. Dave says:

    I wonder if he can see Russia from there? I thought you had to be in Alaska to do that.

  12. puck says:

    If he keeps going he might one day become as respected as Dennis Rodman.

  13. Geezer says:

    The Republicans are busy answering the question: “What’s the minimum number of people required for a mutual masturbation session to be called a ‘circle jerk’?”

  14. Jason330 says:

    A recent Salon article explains a person like Wade, and why Republicans will continue to lose in Delaware very succinctly:

    …the Tea Party — really just the most feverish and obdurate part of the Republican “base” — has decided that there are worse things than losing elections. Having been told for years that its resentments are righteous and that the righteous must give no quarter to the wicked — no compromises! no negotiations! — it has quite reasonably opted to stand on “principle” ( as Ted Cruz puts it) even if this means coming up short at the ballot box. To put this point just a bit differently, it no longer thinks of governing as its primary purpose. It would like to govern, of course; it has an agenda, one it longs to enact; but its principal concern is to preserve its identity as the last redoubt of “pure” Americanism.
