Saxby Chambliss (GA), Lindsey Graham (SC), Bob Corker (TN), Eric Cantor (VA), Peter King (NY) - Each one waffles on a Democrat TV program - Quotes in "Comments."
(Excerpt) Read more at firstread.nbcnews.com ...
Saxby Chambliss: "I care more about my country than I do about a 20-year-old pledge."
Bob Corker: "Im not obligated on the pledge. I made Tennesseans aware, I was just elected, the only thing Im honoring is the oath I take when I serve."
Peter King: "I agree entirely with Saxby Chambliss -- a pledge you signed 20 years ago, 18 years ago, is for that Congress... I think everything should be on the table."
Eric Cantor: "There has been a lot said about this pledge. When I go to the constituents, its not about that pledge. Its about trying to solve problems."
The GOP must know they will get the blame for everything the next 2 years and that the Democrats will sweep them out the door 2014
Conservative Challengers, start your engines!
Just like I said. The Republican Party in D.C. sold us out, and are just protecting their future hig paying jobs as a lobbyist, and/or protecting their big fat pensions.

I wonder why no Republican will ever say on these biased TV programs:
“Raising taxes during a recession is a really STUPID idea! It has NEVER worked! Never in the history of the WORLD!
We shouldn’t wreck this country just because Obama FLUNKED Economics in college!
“Of course, we know Obama flunked economics! Why ELSE would he have spent $8MM to keep his college transcripts “sealed”?
“And besides, one of Harry Reid’s little friends TOLD me (confidentially) that Obama had flunked Economics.”
The GOP and the French have a lot in common.
Maybe you should have stopped typing right there?
That's not such an easy one...
There's nothing these RINOs stand for. They might as well declare themselves to be dims and be done with it. Chambliss definitely needs to be replaced, and I'd like to see Herman Cain run against him!
Yeah, sure, that's what we need. Run another unelected bum statewide and lose another Senate seat in a red state we should be winning. Herman Cain couldn't get elected dog catcher in a general election. The minute he runs for office (which he won't again) one of his mistresses would be all over the news. The man has too many skeletons in the closet that he is not willing to come clean about. Cain is an excellent motivational speaker and decent radio host, but he is never going to be a US Senator.
The best Senator we’ve had in the past 30 years was Zell Miller, a dim, and he was far more conservative than either of the two idiots we have now.
I’ll bet 90% of Blacks would vote AGAINST him!
That would end the Democrat racial BS, well, for five minutes anyway.
By the way...
Has anyone seen exit polling on Rep. Allen West’s election defeat in Florida?
I would love to see how many Blacks voted against him.
Unfortunately, I think they just do exit polls for entire states.
Too expensive to do them locally.
