I would rather have a Democrat in the Senate than this guy.

Can we for the love of all that is good get on with this little puss's defeat already?

I wonder if doing this could hurt him in the GOP primary?

I suspect that most Rhode Island GOP'ers who support Bolton's nomination will not be voting for Chaffee next Tuesday and proabably have had theirs minds made up for sometime now.

Other than trying to be a pain in the butt, I wonder Chaffee's motives are.

Anyone...?

He's demonstrating to the libs in his state that he can stop the GOP when he wants to. He needs to be defeated forthwith.

This is a prime example of what happens when the RNC and any Republican supports these RINO's....He thinks that by stopping Bolton it is going to help him in his election bid.....He is no different than electing a liberal democrat....

I have a question that's unanswered, too: Sen. Chafee, if you can't pay attention to the months that Bolton has already been in office, why should we take you seriously now?

Actually, there's another question: Why do you claim to care?

And, the last: When will the fine residents of Rhode Island wake up and boot this wuss out?

Trying to preserve the State Dept. for the bluebloods like him.

Bolton is an inturder in their eyes.

Did you ever see Kery, Biden etc. get worked up over anything as much as the Bolton nomination a year ago?

Well it may be exactly the opposite...that is; Chafee needs liberal votes to succeed and maybe he thinks this will put him over the top on Tuesday...as I understand it R.I. is virtually all liberal the only distinction is whether you have an (R) or (D) after your name.

Of course Ann Coulter says this guy is dumber than a rock so who knows...

Assuming he loses the primary, is there any chance Chafee will run as an independent, thus giving Laffee a better chance to win the general?

This is a first for me... I've never felt this way before, always felt it's better to be pragmatic, and always go for a Republican... I'm finally in the camp that wants to see him defeated, even if it means we lose the Senate...

The way I see it. If it's 50/50, he'll switch sides anyway... He needs to be taught a lesson, so this time, I'll go for principles over politics, thinking about the future (punishing outright RINOs) over pragmatism

Soooo... bye bye Lincoln is spot on, I hope.

Sen. Lincoln Chafee has pulled the plug on a push by his fellow Republicans to confirm John Bolton as U.N. ambassador, saying he had more questions that needed to be answered.

I've got an answer for you, senator.

In 8 days, Steve Laffey, funded by Club For Growth, is going to beat you like a rug in your R.I. primary.

Laugh while you can, you disloyal liberal weirdo.

I totally agree that he has to go! As soon as he's gone and as long as we hold onto the Senate we can put somebody else on this committee. I just can't believe that the RNC stands by this moron.

No need to go (D). His fine fiscal conservative Republican opponent Laffey looks likely to win Sep. 12th.

Chaffee is such a pitiful snivelling weasel - whenever I have seen him on C-Span babbling meaningless nothings for his lib friends I gag and change the channel. Chaffee is of the "blame America and grovel to the world" school of foreign affairs, so of course he cannot stand a robust defender of US values and policies.

Hey, RINO Chaffee, John Bolton is 1000000000000 times the man you will ever be.

I wish I lived in Rhode Island so I could vote against this idiot. I hope the GOP voters of RI have the good sense to throw him out in the primary. If I recall correctly, he was also one of the ones dragging his feet during the Clinton impeachment process.

I just can't believe that the RNC stands by this moron.

Not only that but the NRSC has spent millions to defeat his far more (fiscally) conservative and GOP-loyal opponent, Steve Laffey, in the upcoming primary.

That's what they're doing with your donations to the GOP this year. Funding Chafee and intervening in an open primary in Arizona to defeat a conservative (Randy Graf) so they can elect a liberal. This meddling in an open primary is an unprecedented use of GOP funds.

For more info, check this FR thread: GOP vs. Conservatives?

This year, don't waste your money on the national GOP. They'll just use it to elect liberals.

This meddling isn't paying off. I think Laffey and Graf are both going to win easily.

LOL! Thanks for the chuckle. I think Chafee is holding Bolton's nomination up hoping to extract money for his re-election. Ooooops, looks like it backfired! I think most everyone in the GOP would rather have a Rat elected in place of this P.O.S.
