“He covets his seat in Washington and is fearful of being primaries. Georgia has primary run-offs, whichs means he can be taken out.”
Careful what you wish for. Too many times, a viable, winnable conservative Senator or Senate candidate has been beaten in the primaries by someone believed to be “pure” by tea-party primary voters, only to have his or her arse handed to them in the general election (e.g. Indiana, Delaware). As for pledges, the only pledges that matter are ones regarding upholding the Constitution, and taking care of his constituents, not some ill-thought “pledge” made to some moose-limb rabble rouser.
This born and bred Georgian is going to do anything needed to primary him, regardless. He needs to be made an example.
Everytime I hear Saxby’s name I think of that photo of him standing behind a laughing Ted Kennedy.
As I posted on the RedState site, I will not vote for Chambliss under any circumstances—even if Cynthia McKinney is the Democratic nominee.
In 2008, I held my nose and voted for Saxby “but, who will pick our crops” Chambliss the Dems having a filibusterer proof senate majority. It didn’t make a darned bit of difference.
Meanwhile, Chambliss has been part of every “gang of...” and spent his time in the senate undermining conservative goals. Chambliss talks conservative on the campaign trail, but in the senate cuts the legs out from under conservative bills.
We are at war... you need to give up all of those old ideas. Either we win and America is saved or all of this will turn to rage in the streets and the end of the republic.
