    S.C. Rep. Bob Inglis ousted for not hating Obama Enough

    Republican Party starts to kill its own: S.C. Rep. Bob Inglis ousted for not hating Obama enough

    This guy is the kind of Republican I remember growing up in South Carolina, one that was honest and didn't take **** from his own party.

    Then he went stupid and pissed on his constituents and got the boot. We've all ready had this discussion and I showed this isn't so much the "Tea Party" as it was this guy lost touch with the Voters and got creamed. I suppose it's nice spin though, a crazy train of thought that impresses some, but a little digging shows Inglis killed his own chances.

    please
    inglis lost by 42 points
    42 points
    an incumbent
    clearly, inglis had lost touch with his constituents
    this is a perfect example to prove that we actually have term limits ... every time an election is held, where the incumbent fails to represent the people who elected him
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Had nothing to do with him being more open and honest and unwilling to bash Obama no, not at all. It also had nothing to do with the governor candidate of South Carolina also being aligned with the tea parties or the fact that the other guys main attack on the man was he wasn't "conservative enough".

    It sounds like he didn't fit in anymore. Maybe he could run as a Democrat.

    Even though the guy has an over 90% lifetime conservative rating and doesn't agree with most of what Obama says? Do you seriously think he should run as Democrat?

    I believe we need real conservatives to turn the country around. Apparently this guy is not Conservative enough. I admit he would probably be a blue dog Dem so probably wouldn't have much of a chance. The Dems don't seem to like them much. Maybe he should just look for another line of work.

    It had less to do with his "Conservative Creds" as it did with he insulted his voter base, voted with the Dem's on a few issues his peeps didn't want him too and he got tossed for it.

    You should. Click the link I provided, and see why (cause in that thread is all the info you need), you are wrong about Inglis.
