Sen Chambliss wants voters to think for himself

December 1, 2012

File under stupid:

Said by Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Georgia to a group of Republicans in Atlanta:

I think that you sent me to Washington to think for myself. And I want to vote the way you want me to vote. I don’t want to be dictated to by anybody in Washington as to how I’m going to vote on anything.

Chambliss said this in response to Grover Norquist’s attacks for breaking his Tax Protection Pledge (which Chambliss initially signed to get voters to think for himself).

    He’s only saying he wants to represent the will of his home constituents over and above the orders of his party leaders in Washington, or Grover Nordquist, who NOBODY voted for.

      Yes, but then he shouldn’t have signed Norquist’s Tax Pledge in the first place, if he were truly thinking for himself (and for his constituents). And, being sent to “Washington” to not be dictated by “Washington” is akin to FOX news blaming everything on “the media”. It’s all doublespeak.
