Liberal Ex-Republican Eyes Dems’ “First In The South”

|| By FITSNEWS || A liberal Democrat who used to be a liberal “Republican” is coming to South Carolina this week.  And yes … he should feel right at home in the Palmetto State, shouldn’t he?

Lincoln Chafee – a two-term U.S. Senator from (and one-term governor of) Rhode Island – will be attending this weekend’s S.C. Democratic Party convention.  It’s all part of his recently announced decision to “explore” a possible presidential bid.

Chafee was a “Republican” from 1999-2007, an independent from 2007-13 and has been a Democrat for the last two years.  But he’s always been a big government liberal.  In other words, he’s proof positive that political labels don’t mean a damn thing.

“A two-time supporter of U.S. President Barack Obama, Chafee consistently voted against tax cuts at the federal level (including income tax relief and the elimination of the death tax),” we wrote of this chameleon back in 2013.  “He also consistently voted in favor of new government spending – and is an adamant opponent of parental choice at all levels of government.”

Chafee did vote against the “Republican” expansion of Medicaid in 2003, but just prior to that he cast a pair of key procedural votes to help move the legislation forward.  So he gets no points from us.

To his credit?  He did vote against the Iraq War … a position he is currently holding over the head of presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

“That was a moment where the premise for going to Iraq was so false that there were weapons of mass destruction; she didn’t do her homework. We live with the ramifications,” Chafee told CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ this weekend. “You may say that’s 12 years ago — that’s a big motivator for me running. If you show a lack of judgment, lack of doing homework then, what can we expect in the future?”

Answer?  More warmongering …

Chafee has also criticized Clinton as being “cold” and wanting to be “the center of attention.”

Representing Clinton at the S.C. Democratic convention will be Terry McAuliffe – the liberal, crony capitalist governor of Virginia.  We look forward to seeing how he responds to these jabs.

Also appearing?  Tax-and-spend liberal Martin O’Malley – former Maryland governor – and David “Mudcat” Saunders, a Democratic strategist who will be appearing on behalf of former Senator of Virginia Jim Webb.

Saunders has been in South Carolina previously touting Clinton’s vulnerabilities …

If the GOP plays it right…the Democrat, no matter who it is…should have NO chance…

But that means ramming Obama down your throats, and making you either Attack him, and his disaster…or defend him…either way, you get the S#!t kicked out of you because you have F*#ked up the country…

And it’s why you all are begging for Jeb or Christie…you know a Moderate FITS-like “Republican” will try to hold hands w/ the corrupt Democrat…so the voters will choose the Democrat…

Love to see a bunch of Dims try to out liberal one another. Really good comedy. “I’ll give everybody ice cream, No I’ll put a cherry on top. I’ll add chocolate syrup. ” Never a mention of how it will be paid for. Just “tax the rich.” Tax the rich, tax the rich. ROFLAO

GrandTango April 20, 2015 at 12:53 pm

R.E. I think they are drunk on the idea the people are screaming for extreme liberalism, because Obama has gotten away with ramming it down our throats.

But Chaffee, Hillary or any of them would be more successful at emulating LeBron James than they will be at Obama 2. They lack the pigment to get immunity from the media…and the gaggle of fools who elected Obama…

FITS is becoming the MSNBC of SC Websites w/ each post.

There may be nothing more irrelevant than Lincoln Chafee coming to SC to “explore” a possible presidential bid.”

PS: Chafee is the epitome of FITS political ideology. Stay in the middle to make everyone think you are like them…when in reality all you really are is: repulsive.
