    Actually, no.
    He's certainly a conservative, but he's not a total prisoner to his ideology.
    The two guys that want to run in his place are much worse in terms of being able to help govern. They're both anti-intellectual teabaggers of the most egregious sort.

    @harold_lloyd Good, maybe they'll make some of the wacky comments tea party is famous for and a nothing candidate no one thought had a chance will be the next democratic senator from Georgia.

    @PoliticalSpice Broun already has made such comment with his,"Science is of the devil." thing.
    But I'd rather have a good Republican than a bad Democrat.

    All of them should leave after 2 terms...maybe we'd finally get a few senators and representatives in there who actually care about the PEOPLE who pay their salaries instead of the lobbyists and lucrative benefits they get by voting certain ways and having inside information.

    I thinkg we as Americans should do something about term limits or lack of. I just don't know what to do lol. I talk to alot of people during the day and so far everyone I've talked to about term limits agrees this needs to happen. How much of a challenge would it be to get something going on this? Anyone?

    @Yvonne not sure... but i think that two 2 year terms for the house and senate is quite enough... no retirement benefits and no lifelong health care... and definitely no lobbying positions or insider trading. after two years they should simply go away.

    yes, keep purging those willing to think for themselves and get the job done and you will soon have the far-right little cadre you want, in lockstep unison towards obscurity...

    What will you call this new, short-lived party?

    But I am a conservative...(a real one) for many, it was attempted to use Benghazi as a gotcha!, but there was no gotcha there, just media and hyperpartisan hype...

    I have mixed feelings. Disdain for his treatment of Max Cleland (a one-time head of the Disabled American Veterans, and former head of the Veterans Administration), but sorry to see him go since he was one of the few who would work with Democrats to try and pull our country's fat out of the fire. I have even more tremendous disdain for ANYONE who would threaten anyone else: Whether right-wingers threatening Republicans who they don't feel are vigorous enough, or left-wingers threatening Republicans or NRA officials. They're both equally repugnant.

    Does anyone really think that either Broun or Price will do anything other than say weird and crazy things and obstruct the work of the Senate?

    Saxby was just another RINO cupcake being traded back and forth in the Senate gym between parties for as little as a pack of smokes.

    I'd agree with you except for the guys who are planning to run to fill his seat.
    He's a reasonable guy, very much unlike Broun and Price.

    But what do you mean by that vague generality?
    Jim Crow? Viet Nam? No Irish need apply?
    I understand nostalgia, but it has selective memory.
    And nostalgia is not a proper basis for running a nation.

    I think he should run again, and present himself as the sane man in a field of hyper-ideological, anti-science crazies. He should make the case that Broun and Price, for sure, are going to be nothing but an obstacle to doing what must be done.

    The Tea Party and their ilk had a chance to influence the path of government and they blew it with temper tantrums and blind adherence to far-right ideology. We don't need more extremists in government, we need statesmen.

    He's leaving because there's going to be several republicans running against him, he's from my district, he was not going to get my vote again !
