The Daily Quote

“Last week, [Sen. Saxby] Chambliss drew attention when said he was willing to buck Norquist’s pledge. ‘I care more about my country than I do about a 20-year-old pledge,’ Chambliss told WMAZ-TV of Macon, Ga. ‘If we do it his way then we’ll continue in debt, and I just have a disagreement with him about that.’ [Rep. Peter] King echoed Chambliss’s assessment Sunday. He said that while he opposes tax increases, he does not advocate taking ‘ironclad positions’ during the negotiations between Democrats and Republicans on the nation’s fiscal issues. ‘I agree entirely with Saxby Chambliss. A pledge you signed 20 years ago, 18 years ago, is for that Congress,’ King said on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press.’ He continued: ‘For instance, if I were in Congress in 1941, I would have signed a declaration of war against Japan. I’m not going to attack Japan today. The world has changed, and the economic situation is different.’”
