Saxby Chambliss to retire at end of term (Bye, bye RINO!)
CNN ^ | 1/25/13 | Dana Bash

Posted on 01/25/2013 8:47:02 AM PST by jimbo123

Saxby Chambliss, the Republican senator from Georgia, will not seek re-election in 2014, a GOP source said Friday.

A conservative voice in the upper chamber since 2002, Chambliss recently drew the ire of some activists to his right who took issue with his support for bipartisan compromise. He was a member of the "Gang of Six," which tried in 2011 to strike a bipartisan deal on reducing the federal debt.

It will be a great weekend here in the Gaffer household...I have steadfastly complained about this RINO for a long time. Constant emails to his useless office, phone calls, and even a letter or two. Worthless piece of crap finally took note he’s toast.... Good riddance, RINO!

As a VERY displeased Georgia voter, I sent his office several notes about how upset I was after his “that’s not how Washington works!” statement.

I am SO glad he is not running again.

Time for him to retire.

Good news! Now we can get a true Conservative! Cain or West would work for me! No more of these south Georgia Dixiecrats. Remember how Chambliss reacted during the last illegal alien fight? We had to melt his phone lines. Then he he changed his mind. RINO!

We’ll celebrate here, as well.

I have copious, pansy-assed responses from that RINO to the many e-mails I’ve sent him over the past four years-—OUT TO PASTURE with ya, Saxby!

(FINALLY! Some GOOD news!)

I just heard that son of a bitch’s radio spot. The SOB complained about contention in the House and then comment on how the Senate was the “saucer that allowed the milk to cool down”....that son of a bitch....that ‘saucer of milk’ is our hard work, our traditional American values, our morals....and he thinks it’s good to “let it cool” down.

F@ck him. Don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out traitor!

Bad news is that he’s going to give Obama EVERYTHING he wants for the next 2 years.

He’s a Florida resident, though, and FL needs him.

I hope Georgia republicans get rid of Isakson as well. The two Senators from Georgia and also the two from Tennessee are way much too liberal for those states.

A conservative voice

We grow weary of days and weeks of never hearing or reading one word of truth.

"Good news!--."

On the surface it is indeed good news. Yet we need to be careful what we wish for. Case in point the Hoosier State: a long time Rino primaried out, with the victorious conservative going on to lose in the general election. Another possible storm cloud -- how close to tipping purple are Georgia's demographics? Is it to the point where the Rats can carry Atlanta and not have to worry about the rest of the state?

It depends on how soon the illegals get the right to vote. They could tip Georgia.

What are Georgia's voter demographics looking like these days? Hopefully your state isn't being polluted by Blue Staters fleeing miserable, high-tax states like mine: The People's Republik of Connecticut?

I heard some democRATs crow that Chambliss' seat "could be a great pick up" for them... please say that can't happen in Georgia!

No. The worst that could happen is a RINO but that’s bad enough.
Max Cleland was or last Dem senator and what got him in was sympathy and being former VA head. While the urban areas are Dem, the rest are not and they don’t outnumber us

His first name is Clarence. I would go by Saxby also.

Herman Cain is not running.

Neither is John Barrow (D, too bad he’d lose and we’d grab his House seat) or Newt (Thank God).

I wouldn’t say the risk is ZERO but it’s pretty damn low. Not gonna happen.

Some rats are suggesting the MAYOR OF ATLANTA who is Black and named “Kasim”. LOL. It’s not Illinois morons!!

You make fun of Saxby’s real first name one more time, he’ll stick his foot so far up your you-know-where that your breath with smell like shoe polish.

(You’ll get my reference if you’ve ever seen Eddie Murphy as Clarence, the Fifth Beatle, on that early ‘80s SNL skit.)

“Herman Cain is not running.”

Good.

“or Newt”

Good.

New blood with new ideas needed.

There are people in the red states of South Dakota and Indiana who wound up with Democrat senators. Anything can happen with the wrong candidate on the ticket. Hopefully the people of Georgia will pick a solid, conservative for their candidate who knows how to get his message across in the face of a hostile media.

North Dakota.

It makes me sick, fraud but the rat over the top but it should never have been that close, terrible campaign by Rick Berg and effective folksy BS from the rat.

At least in Indiana they at least had a reason for not liking the Republican, stupid though it was, and there was a libertarian that let the rat win with under 50%.

And Missouri cause that unbelievable fool Akin refused to quit.

Nevada in 2010, that was won, it was OVER until Angle ran the worst race in history.

It’s like taking a machine gun to your own foot.

Uh-oh, I can almost taste the polish already! ;p
