Grover Norquist supports Senate cliff plan

Source: Politico

Grover Norquist said Monday that he would vote in favor of the Senate’s plan to raise taxes on those earning $450,000 or more annually and said it does not violate his anti-tax pledge.

“Is this a violation of the pledge?” CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer asked him on air.


“No, it is not,” Norquist said on CNN.

“So if Republican Senator ‘X’ votes in favor of the agreement tonight, he or she is not violating the pledge?” Blitzer pressed.

“No. The Republicans have voted in the past to make the tax cuts permanent, all the Republicans, all the pledge takers—” Norquist said.

a dozen pair of crotchless pants. That way the Republicans don't have to fumble with buttons and zippers before fellating him.

As Wolf kissed his ass madly. I used to have respect for old Wolf. That was 30 years ago. He needs to move on and let someone else do the ass kissing at CNN.

14. Zev is Hebrew for Wolf

His name actually is Wolf, not that uncommon a name in parts of Europe. He uses Zev when writing articles for Israeli newspapers.

Zev is a pen name.

I had a relative named Wolf. I never knew him. He was in the British Army and died in combat in WWII.

How was Norquist anointed to put up this pledge of stupidity? I don't remember any ballot asking to make this ass clown more important than he thinks he is.

13. Grover only steers lobbyist money to the Pukes for their re election coffers

 

He does not actually get to vote in the Senate,House or SCOTUS.
But rest assured that any who do not sign the Nazi Loyalty Oath will not get any RNC or Lobby money.
There i said it and Godwin's law be damned,Nazi's are the co-conspirators of Fascists(who required loyalty oaths).
Fascism is the rule of business over government instead of a government of,by and for the people.
When corporations tell our government what to do instead of being told by the government what to do then,what you have is a fascist regime.
I dub thee;Benito Norquist,wielder of the mighty rods bound together,which is stronger than single rod by itself and is used to punish popular dissent.

If Grover,Newt and Karl don't hang together in this treason then they should all hang separately.

17. He must be attempting to maintain he told them to go this way all along.

He does not have the hold he used to carry, especially since several have said publicly the oath is too old. Now he tries to play it is an oath to his constituents, rewriting history again.

27. Norquist got 85% of what he wanted.

 

And he still has a government that needs to cut spending to balance it's budget.

We've fallen into the Republican trap of not collecting enough to keep spending levels.

Obama may have also gotten more of what he wanted but I don't see any long term goal that he is closer to.

37. This gets more and more surreal.

Conservatives sign a pledge of allegiance to Grover.
Then they say they are willing to raise taxes anyways.
Then Grover says that is no violation of his pledge.
But now House Conservatives are unlikely to approve of the deal.

Everyone is moving back and forth so much it's all a blur!
