Time for Senator Saxby Chambliss to retire

When a Republican starts endorsing tax hikes, it is time for that Republican to go. RS McCain suggests that Georgia Senator Saxyby Chambliss (RINO) might be ready to join Former Republican Charlie Crist in retirement

Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss can blame no one else for his self-destructive decision to repudiate his pledge to Georgia taxpayers. His foolish decision to demonize Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform virtually guarantees that Chambliss would face a well-funded and well-organized primary challenge in 2014, if Chambliss were to choose to run for re-election in 2014.

But he won’t.

Mark my word, the handwriting on the wall will become clear enough pretty soon and, by mid-2013 at the latest, Chambliss will announce that he will retire rather than seek re-election.

Well there is your bold political prognostication. Given Chambliss is getting on in years, and given that he will surely be primaried now, McCain is likely right. But, in any case we, the people need to make sure Chamblisss goes the way of Charlie Crist

Just as it was necessary to prevent John Cornyn and Jim Greer from “anointing” Charlie Crist as the Florida GOP Senate nominee in 2010, so now it is necessary to retire Saxby Chambliss.

Agreed! I hope Chambliss steps aside, and lets a more capable, principled Republican take his place in 2014. The fact is that we send more than enough money to Congress, there is no revenue problem, there is a SPENDING problem! Congress must begin tackling the SPENDING addiction now. Any increase in tax rates, or any closing of deductions without reducing tax rates will simply exacerbate the problem!
