Actually, on the Rush Limbaugh show, DeMint also gave progressives one last reason to praise him for his job as a senator. DeMint declared that while it may come as a surprise, Harry Reid is a dear friend of his. While the lapdog actions of the Republicans have been quite welcomed by those who seek to rid the nation of its idiotic dedication to the rights of the individual and capitalism, it has admittedly been a bit of a mystery as to why those who propose to retain such ideals readily permit the opposition forces to gain ground so easily. But DeMint cleared that up yesterday by stating that the person who represents the staunchest enemy of the Republican Party in the Senate is actually a dear friend.

I, too, was very concerned in DeMInt's relishing endearment to about being at the opposite end of any proposal. It's hard to fathom that they even talk let alone are "dear friends." Unless of course there is something we don't know...hidden in a closet !

Then there is indeed hope that DeMint will secretly support Reid's position on gay marriage.....

Harry Reid is the polar opposite of himself as he is so contrary -what a miserable person and he has to bring all others down in the process -what a despicable sad person who does nothing but create gridlock -and that is why we as a nation never go anywhere -stuck in neutral -what has he ever done in all of his years in the Senate ?
Name something positive besides Cowboy Poetry -I mean this guy needs to be put out on the range -without his Union Brethren -he would be out on the street -Adios -finished.

It is touching indeed to have DeMint openly declare his untold affection for Reid, and it gives Progressives that much more hope that they will succeed in transforming the nation into the Marxist model envisioned by our ruler. As long as the opposition is being led by persons who befriend their “enemies”, no real opposition can be organized.
With DeMint now heading up the heritage Foundation, Progressives can be confident that the same viewpoint that would find Reid’s characteristics to be the basis for a dear friendship will be utilized to erode away another area of resistance to progressive ideology.

Attaboy Jim! You and Harry make quite a couple.

LD - for me, the question is begged: can you be "dear friends" with someone whose worldview is 180 degrees from your own?

If you were on trial for your life - as America certainly is currently on trial for its fiscal life right now - do you want your defense attorney to be the BFF of the prosecutor? Or do you want a lawyer who exists to beat the DA in every case?

(I know that LD is need to remind me.)

great point...they act like enemies in public, why not otherwise? I guess every politician must have a degree of hypocritical and duplicitous nature about him/her.

My brother and I don't agree on nearly everything, but he's still my brother and I would give my life to defend him. What's so hard to understand about political polar opposites getting along outside of that arena?

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."
