Watch your wallet, there is no shame or respect for the truth from this DC dirt-bag
By Chris Ingram
Frequent readers of my column will recall that earlier this year I chastised Georgia U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss for endorsing Charlie Crist. I have known Saxby for a long time and have always admired him. But like most people who come to Washington with good intentions, he has turned into a typical politician who speaks out of both sides of his mouth and is only concerned with getting re-elected — as opposed to doing right.
In my column/open letter to Saxby I reminded him of the following:
“Charlie Crist fully embraced President Obama’s reckless and fiscally unsound “stimulus” plan… [he] went down to Ft. Myers, Florida earlier this year… with Obama where they hugged and kissed and America’s children got screwed. For that reason alone, I question your judgment and commitment to conservative values for having recently endorsed such a fraud of a candidate in Charlie Crist.”
Well guess what? Chambliss now has the audacity to send out a fundraising letter attacking Obama for you guessed it, the $787 billion stimulus package! Chambliss even has the nerve to couch it in terms as though he gives a damned about our kids when he says “A president who has put out a $787 billion stimulus package that will saddle future generations with crippling debt.”
While the part about our kids is totally true and a good reason to be concerned about the direction President Obama is taking our country, what Senator Chambliss fails to own up to is the fact that he doesn’t make any mention of the fact that Charlie Crist fully supported the $787 billion “stimulus” (though Crist now denies it), or the fact that Chambliss and the rest of the dirt-bag politicians who run the National Republican Senatorial Committee endorsed Charlie Crist.
This is just another perfect example of the double talking, twelve sandwich eating, stick it to the next generation, Washington politician that every American, Republican or Democrat, should be afraid of. If you get a fundraising mail piece from anyone from the Republican Party in Washington, DC, check the facts. They probably don’t support whatever it is they’re laying on you.
Oh, and one more thing, in my letter to Chambliss earlier this year, I asked him to return the money I sent him for his re-election run-off campaign last year. I’m still waiting…
