    He cares about his country... pfft... he's no better than the big government, tax and spend liberals.

    Being a republican just doesn't mean shit anymore. They're all a bunch of spineless, mealy mouthed pussies that cave time and again to the democrats. It's getting hard to tell the difference between them.

    Fuck 'em all. Civil War II, clean house.

    At the time the ‘pledge’ was seen as a useful political tool, as that’s no longer the case expect more republicans to abandon their ‘drown the government in a bathtub’ pledge.

    Sure why not? Our economy is going to implode anyway, might as well speed up the process.

    Give the democrats exactly what they want, and when our economy fails, we'll all finally be able to see WHY.

    Why would someone who does not hold a political office, someone who voters have never and probably would never support, have so much political power? If the GOP wants to survive, they need to cut their ties with Grover the Great.

    man oh man, you ever thought you'd see your fellow Americans cheering for taxes to be raised and mocking others who don't fall in line with it?

    Grover Norquist is just some washed up fool who thinks he is more powerful than he really is.

    No elected Representative should ever sign a pledge to an interest group or ideology. They are there to serve in the best interests of the American people.

    No pledges!!

    It isn't the man they support it's his principles on taxes they support.
    Until the point our govt displays the ability to PROPERLY spend our tax dollars fuck em.
