Senator DeMint has been an oasis in the desert known as Washington, D.C. Although I would prefer him in the Senate, fighting there, I think he may be able to do more overall good at the head of the Heritage Foundation. As he said, he's left the Senate better than he found it. A truly difficult thing to do. But even though he won't be there in the Senate, we now have people like Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Pat Toomey, Ted Cruz, and on and on. They are all capable of becoming the next "DeMint", or better yet, all DeMints at once! As I've seen elsewhere, Godspeed, Jim DeMint!!!

Just before announcing his departure from the United States Senate, Jim DeMint gave me one last reason to praise him in that job.

He had spent Tuesday morning pointing out the lunacy of “putting revenues on the table,” which by necessity involves the belief that government does not have enough of our money. He advised against Republicans dividing over the issue and “treating the President’s proposal like it’s serious.”

He even delivered a twitter jab to the House leadership: "Speaker Boehner's offer of an $800 billion tax hike will destroy jobs and allow politicians in Washington to spend even more."
