Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) says he's not going to target incumbent Republican senators who back the debt deal.
"I respect how any of those folks vote, I obviously disagree. This is not a good deal for America," DeMint told POLITICO Monday evening. "I respect how any of my colleagues vote on this."

I'll hold fire on that conclusion, pending how much support (or withholding of support) he sends the way of the spendthrift republicans.
I wouldn’t go that far. He will vote the right way. His mistake was answering this question.
Should have followed age old advice “If you don’t have something nice to say say nothing at all”
But WE will.
DeMint is McConnell’s b*tch. FAIL.
Too damned many of them. I can’t blame him. But hopefully when the time comes he will just happen to support a lot of the right candidates.
No need to knock DeMint.
RINOs are still going to be targeted.
Ryan, Cantor, West, DeMint — all disappointments.
DeMint respects weasels. I guess if they are good at being weasels they deserve some kind of respect. At least they remain true to themselves.
Actually, the anger should be focused on the “man” who could have led the house in the right direction but chose to surrender.
I don’t think so Tim. He is still working his PAC isn’t he?
Nah. I've got more than enough anger to focus on the whole lot of 'em. No shortage whatsoever.
Oh yes, now DeMint is a RINO.
He should definitely be primaried.
p.s. does that require a sarcasm tag? — just in case-///////SSSSSS
i agree with you three. jimbo123 has his heart in the right place, but the wrong target. No need to knock DeMint.
Politico is just trying to isolate the FEW true conservatives even more.
DeMint is voting the right way.
and he just flat said his fellow Republicans are WRONG!
that takes courage.
especially when he’s not the leadership.
now someone like West, who calls us schizophenic, because we wanted the Tea Party freshmen to keep the faith, for reducing the out of control spending?
Boehner, telling good conservatives to “get their asses in line” ?!?
...i’ll support jimbo123 calling them any names he wants.
we had ONE chance, ONE piece of leverage, to get some REAL cuts, to save our nation. they betrayed us.
“Evil flourishes when good men do nothing.”
I trust Sarah Palin, Rand Paul, Tim Scott and not many other Republicans.
| I see ya. I see ya down there, jimbo. I'll show ya targeting.
If you want off my ping list get over it!
Evil flourishes when good men do nothing.
I respect your opinion. I and those on this ping list obviously disagree.
