    At around the 3:30 mark, Kingston said it well. “We all miss Nathan(Deal), he was a leading voice on medicaid and immigration issues, and I know that Tom will continue that fight for the people of the 9th District of Georgia.”
    I agree. Tom will do a great job, and congrats to him!

    Tom understands the job he’s been elected to do. He IS the voice of North Georgia.We have great faith that he will represent the 9th district admirably. Congratulations, Tom!

    Congressman Tom Graves made all of Georgia proud this afternoon!

    During his first address to the U.S. House of Representatives he said that we must “Stop the Spending” …it really is pretty simple, and it must be done.

    Tom is going to be a powerful voice for the conservative cause!

      They have a jar with some spare change in it. Whoever can go a minute without violating the Constitution gets the money. I’m told there’s enough money in that jar to buy a Congress.

    It’s a good thing you don’t have to swear on a bible to take out a loan.

    Wait… No bible here either? Sweet!

    The House of Representatives takes this moment very seriously. That was impressive. And best wishes to Rep. Graves!

  6. BuckheadConservative says:

    Congrats Tom Graves! Now….get to work. There’s a lot to be done (or undone)!

  7. ACCmoderate says:

    Graves took the oath “without the purpose of evading,” kind of ironic considering that he’s currently evading a bank.

    I’m sorry, I just find it ridiculous that a guy who espouses such respect for the Constitution, he’s willing to break the law. I guess its fitting that we send a debt-burdened guy up to DC, maybe he can give us tips on how to hide the money in an attempt to defraud China.

      Or maybe we could put all of our country’s assets into a trust so China can’t come after us personally.

      Tom would know a thing or two about how to do that.

    Why didn’t they do one of these for Broun? I saw him there in the video. They could have done both at the same time.

    Good thing John Roberts didn’t do it, or we’d have to do it all over again in a few days. That’s a joke, of course. I’m a big fan of Chief Justice Roberts.

    • Game Fan says:

      Yeah, The same John Roberts who screwed up the first oath of office and forgot to bring his Bible to the second swearing in at the White House? The second oath of office, the one which was supposed to allay everyone’s concerns about a proper swearing in? That John Roberts? Yeah, he seems pretty brilliant to me. Great guy, that John Roberts. Smart too. 🙂

    Don’t know Mr. Graves, or live in his District, but this is interesting: This videao is illegal under House Rules!

    Consider the incident a harmless initiation — which could have been much worse. It used to be that senior members of Congress would take the smaller freshmen, hold them up by their feet, and dunk their heads in a toilet.

    Etheridge, again?
    But parents complained, and Bob Etheridge (D-N.C.) was told to cut it out.
