Saxby: Stud

You’ve got to love this. Saxby and Johnny are tag teaming everyone over this immigration bill.

Saxby gets out there and says, basically, “I love this bill. It does for me things viagra can’t do. If I could carry it’s child, I would. . . . . . . .but . . . . . . I’ve never committed to vote for this bill.”

Yeah, whatever.

    “We’re not bailing at all,” Chambliss said. “We’ve never committed to vote for the bill.”

    Uh huh. You get the feds to enforce what we have now before coming back home with pie in the sky gimmicks that you expect us to swallow.

  2. Observer says:

    I think that might be what he is saying if you read the whole article. He wants the border provisions to remain in, but with the Democrats controlling the Senate, not to mention the House, the border provisions could easily be stripped out while the Dems pass only the amnesty provisions.

    For those within driving distance of Augusta, Saxby’s speaking at the Columbia County GOP breakfast this Saturday morning. Shoot me an email for further details.

    I plan to have questions ready.

    This is getting frustrated. If you’re at the table, helping write the bill, shouldn’t you be a little more committed and enthusiastic. I feel like Saxby is trying to have it both ways on this issue. It’s like he’s leaving himself an out.

    In it’s form now, he supports the bill. Just say that. As long as it stays the way it’s going he’ll support the bill.

    I don’t much care for the double talk that seems to be coming out of Saxby right now. BE CONSISTENT.

  5. RuralDem says:

    Why would you vote against something you helped broker?

    I helped craft this legislation but I won’t vote for it! That’s kind of pointless.

  6. My idea is that they should finally give us the enforcement that was promised back in 1986. It would be 21 years late, but that would be the best thing to do right now. We go that amensty of 1986. Now, at long last, give us the enforcement from that bill.

    After the borders and ports are TIGHTLY and VERIFIABLY secured, we can talk about the rest. I’m sure hewould find that people would at least be more open to their discussion if that happened.

  7. Holly says:

    Oh, good grief. Saxby has already explained this. . . days ago.

    For those who were actually listening to his speech on Saturday, he said that he and Johnny had been part of the discussion of the bill to get certain provisions placed into it. If those provisions weren’t included or were taken out, they wouldn’t vote for the final package.

    What we really should be focusing on is the bill and not whether or not Johnny and Saxby are flip-flopping. I thought most of you wanted them to vote against the thing in the first place, so isn’t this good news?

    Ok, He is running for re-election! And people are shocked and outraged that he is not committed to the highly controversial immigration bill, please. This is Politics. It is not right, but its how the game is played.

  9. -methinks Saxby may have been addicted to Washingtonian Monument Style Viagra way before Viagra was cool:

    -Instead of considering a 6.9 million dollar alternative, he signed off on the $220 million version because he likes to see YOUR Federal tax dollars at work.

    enjoy,

    4-10-01: The Fall Line Freeway fiasco has not changed since I got here in 1996… It is not the Indians, the environmentalists or the archaeologists who are being obstinate.

    It is the people who want to put a road over a swamp no matter how stupid, expensive, wasteful and just plain wrong it is… The most important reason they want that road to go over the swamp is, get ready for the most stupid reason of all: because it costs the most money.

    That’s right. I heard Saxby Chambliss say it himself a few years ago. I will never forget it.

    He said that we need to build the most expensive road because we need to get our tax dollars back from Washington… (Macon Telegraph “Letter to the Editor” from Nancy Engel)

    I’m a conservative, but if Saxby vacated his seat today, and the two going for it were Sonny Perdue and Roy Barnes…I’d choose Roy Barnes.
