Chambliss latest Republican to break with anti-tax lobbyist

Nov 23, 2012 Full story: Reuters 125

Senator Saxby Chambliss this week became the latest Republican lawmaker to loosen his ties to Grover Norquist, the anti-tax lobbyist famous for getting elected officials to sign a "taxpayer protection pledge."

There was no mandate. The Democrats stole barely enough votes to get Obama a new set of Golf Clubs. The world is laughing at the country that has become a third world country overnight. The nice thing about the wisdom of our forefathers is we will overcome this "bump in the road" to become great again.

I doubt that he will ever be for all America unless it the union seal in front of it. IMHO, he is bought and paid for by the unions and they are starting to come and collect their debt from other Americans' hides.

Watch see what happens if they cave...I know this...the wheels will indeed come off, but they won't be coming off what they think. It really doesn;t mater which side of the aisle they are on, if any of these bastards make just one single fuckup after we've told them not to it will be the day they ALL became unhappy and shocked at what they started, and i can promise you liberal shit and the rest of the folks this...they will NEVER be that unhappy again, and they will truly get to witness a horror that even Hollywood could not dream up.

If you folks think the bloodshed in the first Civil War was shocking we are about to make that look like a rip to Sunday School, and by the time they believe what their eyes are actually showing them they will be sicker, choking on their own vommit, and dying.

If you want to witness these liberal shit laying on the ground, convulsing, while every organ in their body shuts down, and every muscle in their body contracts to the point they break their own backs, and then watching as their brain dies last so that they can live that horrible experience, then watch them cave and fuckup and do what we told them not to just one more fucking time. They better realize we are watching, and they better fucking realize just how grave a mistake like that would be and since thes eliberal love to Hate Nukes so much, they'd be begging for a Nuke after we got doen unleashing what we most definitely will if they don't wise up and do what the fuck we tell them to.

Wanna go against the poeple of this Country one more time? Be my guest and you will take your flight to hell!

2004 Electoral college:

Bush 286 votes

Kerry 252

In 2004, President Bush was re-elected with 286 electoral votes, defeating Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) by 3.3 million votes -- the smallest popular-vote margin since 1976 (excluding the 2000 election) and the lowest electoral vote count for an incumbent president's re-election since Woodrow Wilson drew 277 electoral votes in 1916. Nevertheless, many in the media were quick to echo Vice President Dick Cheney's assertion that "the nation" gave Bush "a mandate." It remains to be seen whether the media will apply the same standard in assessing whether the results of the 2008 election constitute "a mandate" for the projected winner.

2012 Electoral college:

Obama 332 votes

Romney 206

Next move that will prove a disaster for the GOP is going over the mythical Fiscal Cliff in protesting against the Tax Cuts for the American Middle Class to protect the top income earners tax rates.
Seems to me the Republicans are slashing their own throats with this move. Even after going over the Fiscal Cliff, what can be accomplished in refusing to reenact the Middle Class Tax cuts as many suspect the Republicans will.
First you whine about Norquist, now you bitch about them leaving him. All you want to do is bitch..........bitch.

Obama considers corporate funding for 2013 inauguration

President Barack Obama's fundraising advisers have urged the White House to accept corporate donations for his January 2013 inaugural celebration rather than rely exclusively on weary donors who underwrote his $1 billion re-election effort.

OH NO, NOT THOSE EVIL CORPORATE DOLLARS WE HEARD SO MUCH ABOUT FROM THE LEFT. More candy for the candynanny.

No one is increasing taxes. The Bush GOP tax cuts are set to expire. They were TEMPORARY. The Democrats will fight though to extend the tax cuts to the working middle class. The question is: will the GOP TEA RINOs hold the middle class tax cuts hostage like they did the payroll tax cuts unless the rich 1% get a tax cut as well?
The GOP TEA RINOs are in a lose-lose situation.

Sen Chambliss will behave like a responsible adult if he follows through & negotiates with colleagues who will leave increased revenues on the table.

Always good to see Republicans behave like responsible adults. Did you hear that Sen Graham? Sen McCain?

By action or inaction, allowing taxes to increase is the same as increasing taxes. It's simple logic. You do know what "LOGIC" means, right?

Union members didn't elect Obama. There are no where near enough of them....

In 2011, the union membership rate--the percent of wage and salary workers who
were members of a union--was 11.8 percent, The number
of wage and salary workers belonging to unions is 14.8 million.
