Self-made pundit on term limit hypocrites.

I have no beef with people who pledged to not serve more than X terms and who then violate that pledge. Or, more specifically, whatever problem I had was with the initial stupid pledge, not the subsequent breaking of it.

I do have a problem with people who run on mandatory term limits as a campaign issue who then break those pledges.

And, I also have a problem with the guy SMP busts:

Citing an ongoing "threat" to the nation, Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.) said today he will no longer be bound by his pledge to limit himself to three terms.


"It is my deeply held, and now tremendously reinforced, belief that our nation is confronted with a physical, spiritual and philosophical threat that will require every ounce of our individual effort in its defense," Tancredo said.
