It should be over for Grover

(Continued)

Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss of Georgia said: “I care more about my country than I do about a 20-year-old pledge.” Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee told CBS: “I’m not obligated on the pledge.”

Other Republicans dissing Norquist include Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, John McCain of Arizona and New York Rep. Peter King. Even Eric Cantor, the highly partisan House majority leader, told MSNBC: “When I go to the constituents that have elected, re-elected me, it is not about that pledge. It is really about trying to solve problems.”

For his part, Norquist on Monday continued his threats to lawmakers. He said his group would “certainly highlight who has kept their commitment and who hasn’t.”

It’s long past time for Congress to finally tell Grover it’s all over for him.
