Grover Norquist is nothing more than a sore loser like the rest of them.

IMO, Grover Norquist was indeed one of the reasons for the R's failure this time. I feel that his pledge was a conflict of interest, and all who signed it were out of order and culpable. When he added his statement basically saying we only need a puppet as a President, because he's got all the legislation, and just wants a President who has enough fingers to hold the pen to endorse it, I felt it was an obvious attempt to overthrow the entire democratic process, maybe even equivalent to a government takeover.

I don't believe I was the only person to see it this way, and I feel that, as a result, HE was a major impediment to the success of his party.

I did, and still DO believe that he's a very dangerous man, and steps should be taken to overthrow his "power".

I agree and think that several in his own party are beginning to agree. I still can't figure out how he managed to grab that party by the balls.

Grover Norquist has the same level of sophistication as Sarah Palin - that is, zero!

Of course he is going to say that. If any debate about why the GOP lost is in anyway tied to ideas he will get some of the blame for pushing hard right stances on the party.

Norquist needs to join Rove on the way out the door.

Obviously Norquist quit thinking around the age of 12, but the GOP continues to follow the ideas set forth by a 12 year old. Not surprising he uses words like 'poopy'.

Quote:
Norquist told "The Daily Show" in February that he came up with the idea for the pledge when he was 12 years old, about the same time that Bush served in the House of Representatives.

Nah, the guy is not dumb. He has a brain. It is his soul that is missing.

I guess that explains why he's a lobbyist and not an actual politician.
