Thilli$$$ to conservatives: ‘Spare me your righteous indignation.’

THIS guy is a true piece of work:

[…] But now he’s a lead sponsor of a bill to protect special counsel Robert Mueller from interference by Trump — enraging conservatives and potentially risking the president’s ire. It’s the biggest gamble Tillis has taken as a Republican senator, but one he believes is philosophically consistent with how the GOP would be treating a Democratic president.[…]

Tillis doesn’t think Trump will ultimately fire Mueller even as the president rages over the expanding Russia probe. But he has an impassioned response for his conservative critics nonetheless: “Spare me.”

“Courage is when you know you’re going to do something that’s going to anger your base,” Tillis said in an interview in his Senate office.[…]

No, sir.  Promising one thing when you campaign and doing something entirely different after elected?  That would be better described as duplicity, fraud, dishonesty or a scam.

You ran for office promising to fight tooth and nail to get rid of ObamaCare.  You got up there and did little to nothing about that.  Instead, you’ve spent an inordinate amount of time working with liberals to get amnesty for illegal aliens, to further bust the budget and hike the federal debt,  and to prolong this unconstitutional witch hunt against our president.


[…] “The same people who would criticize me for filing this bill would be absolutely angry if I wasn’t pounding the table for this bill if we were dealing with Hillary Clinton,” he argued. “So spare me your righteous indignation.”[…]

Nope. The Constitution  tells you to turn  to impeachment proceedings if you have evidence of criminal wrongdoing in the executive branch.  There is no legal basis for a special prosecutor.  None.  It’s something politicians have dreamed up as part of the never-ending ‘creative governance’ in Washington.

This guy is getting bolder.  And why not?  His pals in Raleigh made it easier to survive a primary — setting the threshold to avoid a runoff at 30 percent. Barring a significant scandal, this guy could get 30 percent in his sleep.  There are enough mind-numbed uninformed robots out there who will mark his name at the polls purely out of name recognition.  Like they remember Chick-Fil-A, or Mountain Dew.
