Georgia Republican U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss is breaking ranks to oppose efforts to restrict federal funding for National Public Radio.
The Georgia Republican defended the news organization over the weekend, saying restricting federal funding may not be the wisest thing.

Another ‘big gubmint’ RINO.
He is in our cross-hairs.
Idiot. They’re all idiots. They still don’t get how pissed off we are...
The Jackass needs to shut up and fund it himself out of HIS OWN pockets if he feels so “warm and fuzzy” over NPR...
RINO's have a special circle of Hell just for themselves.
An ugly one ?
I’m shocked. I have to say I don’t miss having to repeatedly call his office in a complete rage. I don’t waste my time being outraged by Boxer and Feinstein.
Would never expect much from a silver spooner with the ridiculous “Saxby” as his handle.
What’s his wife’s name?
let them sell commercial time and get off the public dole
Saxofcrap Chambliss, Lindsey Grahamnesty, John McPain, Olympia Snowejob...*SIGH*
They should be deported to North Korea along with the rest of the libs....
The NPR is not a “news organization” first of all.
This guy should be run out of the party.
I'm convinced that at least half of the Republicans share the same big government philosophy of 100% of the Democrats. These Republicans will speak a good game - but when it comes push to shove they'll support Big Government spending, and stall any cuts. Perhaps 25% to 50% of the Republicans actually believe in the concept of a limited Government, with a much smaller budget, and reduced tax burdens on the people.
This is a tough one to correct. Many of these Republicans will masquerade as caring about fiscal responsibility - but you don't find out until its time to vote - and you get garbage like this where Chambliss somehow finds that its important for the taxpayers to support NPR...
We have to root these turncoats out if this Nation is to survive.
“restrict funding”??? What happened to ELIMINATE funding for NPR?!?!?!??
Sorry, Patriot, they don’t care.

Nah. Coupla hundred thou for Mozart, Mahler. Maybe. (Nothing for 12-tone composers Jazz is OK.)
Send Nina Totenberg ("Death Mountain" in German) and the airhead Mara Liason packing off to another broadcaster. Bill Moyer, Garrison Keillor and too many other Left-Wing Anal Carbuncles are literally making millions off NPR. send them packing off to the private sector, and make them take that sepulchre-voiced superannuated liberal dingbat Daniel Shorr with them. "All things considered?" Yeah right! "OK, Keillor is funny, maybe he can make it on his own, even after he sees how his anti-Republican slurs go down.
That Seymour witch out in LA says it all for NPR when he baldly states that the "Left is good. The Right is bad, we all know that."
Saxby Chambliss? Linda Murkowski? I wish them both a happy political Totenberg.
He’s a phony R. Sarah went to GA and campaigned for him in the run off - what a mistake. No, I don’t hold it against her - we needed this seat, but, dang
NPR has photos of Chambliss with a dead girl or a live boy.
Only explanation for this betrayal.
What a senile old douche.
I feel particularly betrayed given my role in creating the ‘controversial’ ads which got Sax elected in the first place.
Good point! Just two years ago, the Huffingtonandpuffington was caliming what great ratings NPR was getting.
If Nazi Propaganda Radio is getting the good ratings Zsa Zsa’s crew claims, they don’t need the federal “government” to borrow money from China to fund them anymore.
Someone tell Uga to go for his...
Murky Kowski, “Playgirl” Scotty Brown, Susan Vodka Collins...Richie Lugar...Gregg “I almost worked for Obama” Judd?
Every time I see Alligator Arms McAmnesty support Obama, I want to pull every dime from the RNC and start a new party, the TEA Party, not Democrat-Lites.
I loathe the RINOs.
Someone stamp “part of the problem” on ol’ Saxby’s forehead.
He has GOT to go.
Prayers for Japan.
Even looking at this from a pure political point of view, of all the things to stick up for. Again WTF???
Perfect 2010 ACU Rating of 100
Baner (I'm not even going to try and spell his name right) rolls over and sadly takes many Tea Party freshmen with him by voting for (and passing) continuing resolution...
MurCowSki (I'm not even going to try and spell her name right) openly supports Planned Parenthood. If only this had been the position of Lisa's mother.
Saxby Shameless (Sadly, I think I spelled his name correctly) wants to continue to fund NPR. I don't know, maybe he'll be getting his own show.
The Republican party is weak-kneed and wobbly at best. Right now I can count on one hand the number of Senators who can be counted on to hold to conservative ideals. The House has maybe twenty.
But rest easy you weak and wobbly ones, the New York Times loves you and no doubt you will now be invited to some great parties there in D.C.
What a joke!! Their source has to be the Washington Post or the New York Times. No other logical explanation...
I voted for this RINO POS! His office will be hearing from me. What in the hell is going on in the Republican party? They don’t give a crap about the people that elected them.
Why doesn’t the old fart just go ahead and put a scarlett D next to his name already???????
Hidden RINOs rise went called upon! take and names my fellow patriots - RINOs are a majority in GOP, hence the total fear of Palin, because she doesn’t have hidden ghost to be controlled with!
“I loathe the RINOs.”
never again will this potato nose get my vote.
He’s pulling a Fred Thompson.
You’ve got it right my friend.
The Tea Party sent some good people to Washington in this last election but that still makes the rest RINO’s.
Many of the new members from upstate New York and here in Pennsylvania are establishment moderate insiders.
This guy is an idiot. NPR will cheerfully continue to destroy him simply because he pretends to be an R.
Drinking from the Potomac is he? What a maggot.
Just go ahead and bend America over the table some more! Just remember to use lube this time!
Just wait til the upcoming primaries for the 2012 elections.
Lot of old fool politicos will be tossed to the curb cause they are RINO turds in favor of REAL conservatives.
Maybe that will wake up these old fools
There is no fool like an old fool.
This guy has been a complete failure as a republican senator in my state.We wear out the phone lines to this guys office and he gets back into line and then we have to start the whole process all over again.We need to recall this small r.
We need to recall this turncoat.
Apparently, somebody high up in the poultry industry must have a kid who works at NPR.
Saxby never gets off his *ss unless its on behalf of his corporate masters.
What do you expect from a RINO? I wish he was from FL so I could vote against his sorry A$$
OK Georgia—You know what you have to do.
Those types of ratings are based on votes for specific pieces of legislation. Some politicians vote right or left, but try to talk like they are “moderate”. When they get called for straying from their base, they point to the ratings and ignore their public words.
As Captain Renault might have said, “I am shocked that there is disingenuousness in politics. Absolutely shocked!”
