"I care more about my country than I do about a 20-year-old pledge…I care a lot more about it than I do Grover Norquist."

- Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss, breaking ranks with the militant anti-tax wing of his party. 41 senators have signed Norquist’s pledge—which is essentially a promise to never, ever vote for any revenue or tax increase—but while the document used to be Republican orthodoxy, its influence is showing signs of crumbling. Chambliss’ colleagues Lindsey Graham, John McCain, and Tom Coburn have all recently called for Republicans to abandon the pledge, as has former governor Jeb Bush. While Norquist is a very powerful figure in DC, he isn’t an elected official. He derives power solely from Republicans’ decision to grant him power, and if their subservience to his demands goes away, so does the bulk of his political influence. source (via shortformblog)

"I’m not gonna do it and I’m not going to be asked and it’s not going to happen."

- Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush • Saying that it’s unlikely that he’ll be the vice presidential pick in somewhat firmer terms than Mike Huckabee. Bush, who has emerged as a voice who isn’t afraid to disagree with his own party at times, admits that if we were to do it, “this was probably my time,” but that “I’m not sure I would have been successful as a candidate either.” The odds, either way, are looking good for a VP candidate out of Florida — CPAC voters in Chicago over the weekend heavily favored current Sen. Marco Rubio as their desired running mate for Mitt Romney. (via shortformblog)
