Grover Norquist dismisses ‘impure thoughts’ on taxes

Source: Washington Post

A day after two Republican lawmakers announced they would no longer comply with his “Taxpayer Protection Pledge” to never vote to raise taxes, Grover Norquist said he would work against those members who violate the pledge.

Sens. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), along with Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), said in recent days that they were willing to vote for revenue increases despite having taken the pledge.

His group, Americans for Tax Reform, will “certainly highlight who has kept their commitment and who hasn’t,” Norquist told CNN’s Soledad O’Brien. But he said he wasn’t worried that lawmakers’ talk of breaking the pledge would turn into action.

“No Republican has voted for a tax increase,” Norquist said. “We’ve got some people discussing impure thoughts on national television.”

I guess Grover Norquist is putting an end to any idea of any type of grand bargain and dismissing talk of tax increases as folks discussing "impure thoughts." Talk about a god complex. At the same time, Grover has been having elected officials signing pledges to him and willing to plunge the nation into default out of respect for this pledge. I guess we can understand why he would use quasi-religious talk to characterize taxes.

2. I Guess Its Better for A Republican To Be A Traitor To Their Nation...

...as opposed to a heretic who deviates from the gospel of cutting taxes.

11. Poor Grover

I don't think the grand bargain would be good idea either. We need and honest discussion about taxes. People that expect more freebis are the greedy self absorbed tax dodgers and cheats. Like corporations that earn millions, yet pay NO income tax.

19. Yet, Republicans continue to pay homage to this man with no blowback from the media!

Think about it. Rush Limbaugh, Grover Norquist and Fox News (Roger Ailes and Karl Rove) are not elected. Yet, they are essentially the corporate overseers of the Republican party. Actual elected Republicans must drink the Kool-Aid and read off the same script of talking points or they will be ostracized and primaried by the next crazy person who is willing to read the script without question.

18. there's your money quote"

“certainly highlight who has kept their commitment and who hasn’t”

Which commitment is Norquist speaking of? The one they made to him, or the one they supposedly made to their constituents, along with upholding and defending the Constitution?

Fuck Grover Norquist and anyone who signed his pledge. Just fuck 'em.

21. Do you get the impression...

...that Grover was picked on all through his childhood, and this is his way of getting back at the world? "I'll show you! I'll show all of you!"

And, he's married??? Who would voluntarily marry that sniveling twit?
