Sen. John Cornyn will meet with GOP Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell.

Washington (CNN) - A senior GOP aide tells CNN that Christine O'Donnell postponed her meeting that was planned today with NRSC John Cornyn, citing scheduling conflicts because of her speech at the Values Voters summit in Washington.

This aide said staff from both camps still intends to meet Friday, and that they hope to reschedule to meet with her personally "in the near future."

CNN first reported earlier that this first meeting between the two, who have publicly sparred from afar, was set to take place in Washington.

    I have yet to see a photo of this woman in which she does not look like she belongs in a mental institution, medicated and under guard. You can't hide the crazy once it is in the eyes.

    We have 5 republican prolife senate candidate from TEA party, they believe that in rape or incest woman should give birth to a child.

    I have one simple question to them.

    What happens if a professional woman in her late twenties get raped by a man,?
    Do they think that this woman for 9 month jeopardizing her professional life to give birth to a child of rapist?
    And who gave them right to control the life of this woman?
    Oh! I forgot it is god, may be they have to produce a letter from god.

    Looks like they want freedom from govt. to get out of our life but not in this case.

    Man...the established GOP can't wait to get their hands on these newbies – soon they'll be as corrupted as Ole Washington – case in Point O'Donnell – tax evasion, student loan default, oh and she wants to make masturbation illegal – she thinks it's adultery and lush.

    You want less government in your lives – but you want the government to control your womb and whom you can marry. I certainly wouldn't call that less government. These teabaggers don't even know what they're all about.

    Christine are you going to give us a lecture on how your lunatic fundamentalists want us to do in our own bedrooms? Or maybe a speech on ethics so we can learn how to claim to be a college graduate yet not actually finishing ...or better yet if your house is going to foreclose, just sell it to your boyfriend / campaign manager.

  8. Wake up America!

    Is she going to be yet another target of CNN's hit machine. First Palin, now O'Donnell.

    Does anyone think CNN will attack her opponent, ever? I doubt it too. We all KNOW CNN is an arm of the democratic party.

    If the Republican establishment does not think that O'Donnell is worth supporting, they shouldn't give her the time of day. O'Donnell is a real political liability to the Republicans and is chop liver for the Democrats!! She is beatable in November.

    Boy doesn't it suck to hold your hand out in a cooperative manner only to have it slapped by a complete unprofessional brat. Hmmm, kinda feels like the treatment the GOP has been giving President Obama.

    What happened to common courtesy???

  13. save america, vote out republicans

    I always felt that Rush and Fox really ran the GOP ( aka the party of nut jobs), and Karl Rove was a little puppet to Fox. After Karl's backtracking, I found out it is true.

    Remember when Phailin got all the old twisted white guys (GOP) all excited and in a twitter not too long ago?
    Well there is no surprise here – this ones prettier, has more experiance in front of a camera, and doesn't mind who hears her talking crazy nonsense. She has no shame about being a nut.
    She's the type who with a cold stare would judge a person with little more than a look, tell them they deserve to go to hell, have no regrets, and then still claim to be a follower of Christ.

    Phailin it's time to pack up your bagage and git, there's a new Brainless Barbie in town.

  18. T'SAH from Virginia

    NO ONE can get to O'Donnell now because she has to STUDY and get a hold of those "quick quotes" like her teacher Sarah Palin did!! Also keep in mind that she WILL NOT be answering questions as she RUN for COVER after her speech!!

    DEMOCRATS need to WAKE UP – Yea, and plan to hit DC on the 30th of October for the SANITY RALLY – I know I will!!

    DEMOCRATS – STATE the CASE and stick with it – UNITE the BASE and mean it – and let's WIN this RACE in November 2010.... Yes We Can!

    T'SAH from Virginia – the Liberal – and I approve this message!

    Define Values, not using buzz words. The brain dead voters love the use of words they don't have to think about. Sure, I want values, so I'll vote for that cute little thing. O'Donnell barely has a shiny new BS degree, and she's the best the GOP has to offer? Ooops, almost forgot they also have the bobble head Alaskan that has honed buzz words to a fine art.

    She is as empty mined as the Gov of Alaska. Her rise to fame was about socialism. If the Us was a true socialist society social security and Medicare receptions would have to spend money only in Gov. Run facilities. That's hardly the case.

    O'Donnell was apprently caught watching Pinky And The Brain in her office, cowering under her desk because she believed it was a real science experiment perpetrated by the godless leftist heathens who support stem cell research.

    Ah well, she doesn't deserve the time of day, but she's a lodestone for controversy...anyopne who is a complete and utter moron who threatens to take office should be...so CNN is going to shove her down our throats.

    Speaker after speaker after speaker at the valueless voters summit provided more of the same OLD empty rightwing diatribe that's been spewed repeatedly before....its quite old and stale, except to those with empty minds, blank stares and slack jaws......the same old meaningless scare tactics were being used back in the 1990s to stir up the rightwing underbelly, even as Clinton dragged them kicking and screaming into the best economic prosperity they've ever enjoyed.

    These small-minded Teapublican drama queens are like a mad dog who would bite the very hand that would try to heal it. These idiots, like O'Donnell, are an embarassment to America and all humans.
