Skip to comments.Some Ariz. Repub. party officials resign after Tucson shooting (McCainiac attacks Tea Party)
Posted on 01/12/2011 7:15:33 PM PST by rabscuttle385
A conflict that has been going on between local Arizona Republicans came to an end in the wake of the shooting in Tucson on Saturday when Arizona's Republican District 20 Chairman Anthony Miller and several others chose to resign.
The Arizona Republic reports that Miller, 43, a former campaign worker for Sen. John McCain who was re-elected to a second one-year term last month, has been concerned for his family's safety by constant verbal attacks and blog posts from some local committee members with tea party movement ties.
Miller, the first and only African-American to hold the party's precinct chairmanship, said he had been called "McCain's boy," and that, during a speech, a member of the audience made the symbol of a gun with his hand and pointed it at him. "I wasn't going to resign but decided to quit after what happened Saturday," Miller said. "I love the Republican Party but I don't want to take a bullet for anyone."

Now replace the RINOs with REAL Republicans.
No thank you, we have entirely to many as it is.
You can keep him or better yet send him out west.
I don’t believe anything published in the ComPost.
More McCain idiots in AZ. I was invited to a all expense paid trip to Scotsdale which meant free golf too. I turned it down. Any state that panders to Juan McCain is no interest to me.
LOL! “Give me liberty, or give me my resignation papers!”
I've been threatened too. It comes with the territory. You just tell 'em "Bring it" (and don't let them see the .45 pistol in the back of your waistband).
99 percent of the bullies are cowards who would never actually do anything. For the occasional loony, you hope you can beat him to the draw.
I think you are right.
The press, in alienating a big chunck of its audience, is merely hastening the fall of the Main Stream Media. No one believes them anymore.
We all know it, but they have not yet gotten the point.
I know what he said and I don't believe him. But even if it were true, you don't run from such things you face them.
I applaud your steadfastness but this guy claimed it was the Tea Party on his arse and hinted at racism...he sounds like a David Brooks sort of "conservative"
Next we'll find out he's really a homosexual and he'll become a HuffPo contributor...McCain sure had a lot of these types around him didn't he?
and women who like being gals too

good riddance! let’s only hope this is only the start of the exodus of RINOS out of GOP
[The guy must be some liberal plant.]
The fact that Miller said, “I wasn’t going to resign but decided to quit after what happened Saturday,” indicates Miller supports the absurd charge that conservatives created a “climate of hate” motivating the killer. Miller timed his resignation with the shooting to gain maximum publicity and damage to the Republicans.
Ah phooey on him, take you boss with you. We don’t need anymore posing weasels.
“Miller timed his resignation with the shooting to gain maximum publicity and damage to the Republicans.”
Is that a fact or just conjecture. He claims to “love” the Republican Party. But we know his actions and his claim of love for the party are incongruous.
You could say that. He worked for McCain. Let's face it. McCain is more left wing than right. Maybe McCain is a double agent (i.e., RINO)
I love the Republican Party but I dont want to take a bullet for anyone.
No one? Not anyone? Wife, kids? No one? Really
Conjecture. I can't read his mind. But if he really cared anything about the state party he could have waited until the media spotlight on Tucson dimmed a bit and then departed quietly. Instead he makes a public statement that—intended or not—dovetails with the propaganda campaign of left-wing media and politicians.
That's a good point. I don't really care that much or I would research the guy; so I'll conclude with the rhetorical question. Who is this flipping guy? And good riddance.
That’s the nice and, apparently, the accepted way to say it. lol
BTW, I think I owe a HT to MadIvan for “bits and pieces.”
Either that, or Monty Python.
They are all Brits, though...and very clever ones, at that. ;o)
“The good news is: 1. A RINO has taken himself out of the game. 2. His grandstanding will be for naught.”
If that’s the good news, then it’s all okie dokie with me!
“To Mr. Miller I say good bye, good riddance and dont let the door hit ya on the way out.”
“DixiechickUnfortunately your comment about conservative male politicians not appearing to be properly equipped for a knock down drag out is apt. But Im fine with Conservative women showing them the way to remedy that short fall.”
Thank you for being a real man, and realizing that many of those on the Hill aren’t.
They are self-serving..............nothing follows. ;o)
“and women who like being gals too”
That is priceless! I love it!
I’m sorry to bother you, Mr/Mrs/Ms mod, but this is one for the FR Lexicon database.
I’m going to say “itty bits” from now on because that is exactly what they are.
I got familiar with British humor along time ago.,was stationed in the UK during early 70’s...just as Monty was getting started...
After I was discharged and came home, I told my brother that the emerging British comedy coming to the states was something to watch for and that there was some brilliant stuff to enjoy....
I love Brit humor!
I was in London a few years ago, and was very fortunate to see “Spamalot”, which is the musical version of “Holy Grail”. It was hilarious!
Seeing it in a theater...especially a 19th century theater...was the icing on the cake.
“Bring out your dead...bring out your dead...”
“I’m not dead, yet”
“T’is a flesh wound”
LOL! What great theater!
Thank you! That was it!
The sooner the better!
