James Warren “Jim” DeMint (born September 2, 1951) is the junior United States Senator from South Carolina, serving since 2005. He is a member of the Republican Party and a leading member in the Tea Party movement. He previously served as the United States Representative for South Carolina’s 4th congressional district from 1999 to 2005. On December 6, 2012, he announced plans to resign from the Senate in early January 2013 to become president of The Heritage Foundation.

 

So Mr. DeMint is gone so he can make around $1 million bucks as President of The Heritage Foundation. So?

 

The words of Ms. Jennifer Rubin ring so true…..”Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) is leaving the Senate to take over the Heritage Foundation. He will replace  Ed Feulner as the conservative think tank’s president. He expressed no qualms about leaving the Senate before his term is up, nor did he reflect on his legislative achievements, of which none come to mind.”

 

I couldn’t have said that any better or different.

Now if only Boehner and Cantor and McConnell and Ryan and Paul and Graham……well you get my drift.

Maybe The Heritage Foundation could use more members of Congress to assist the foundation is whatever it does?

 

 

The Heritage Foundation is an American conservative think tank based in Washington, D.C.Heritage’s stated mission is to “formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterpriselimited governmentindividual freedomtraditional American values, and a strong national defense“.

 

The foundation took a leading role in the conservative movement during the presidency of Ronald Reagan, whose policies drew significantly from Heritage’s policy study Mandate for Leadership. Heritage has since continued to have a significant influence in U.S. public policy making, and is considered to be one of the most influential conservative research organizations in the United States

 

Like I said….whatever this foundation does.

 

 

Sen. Mitch McConnell had this to say about DeMint taking his ball and going home:

“I thank Senator DeMint for his uncompromising service to South Carolina and our country in the United States Senate.  Jim helped provide a powerful voice for conservative ideals in a town where those principles are too often hidden beneath business as usual.  There is no question in my mind that he raised the profile of important issues like spending and debt and helped galvanize the American people against a big government agenda. I am confident that he will continue to advocate for conservative principles in the next chapter of his service to the American people.”

 

 

If we’re lucky, in the near future, those names I mentioned above will also be leaving the Houses of Congress for greener (more profitable) pastures.

 

The TeaTardedRepubliCANTS are losing representation and power in Congress, faster than a dried out used up tea bag loses flavor.

 

If We’re Lucky.

  1. I think he will still be a strong force just as the Koch brothers are. They and the Heritage Foundation fund the GOP propaganda machine. We need to stop Propaganda in America.

    • I don’t see DeMint as a factor or force in anything, now that he is gone or before he left. Just an old wind bag, like Grover and Rove….and other GOPukes are starting to realize that as well.

  2. Hey JB! And Jim, listen up buddy: “Let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya! It would definitely be a blessing to have those mentioned names follow in your footsteps.”

  3. Don’t let the back door hit you…
