Apparently people don't know what sarcasm is. Did anyone see Graham smiling or act like he was happy about this? I didn't. Cripes.
"Lindsey Graham is exactly what is wrong with the Republican Party. A bunch of dang smushes."
EXACTLY! I could write an 80 page dissertation on the fallacy of Graham's thinking but I like how Scoop cuts to the chase.
Graham is a RINO, always was and always will be. Seems like we are fighting a losing battle against Obamas thick skull. He will probably let US go over the cliff and of course blame the republicans.....Happy New Year? I don't know yet.
We the People have no support in DC, for the most part. It's well past time to either leave the Republican Party or take it over and purge the RINOs friom the ranks. And before you say "but that will ensure the Dems win future elections", let me remind you that the Repubs haven't won much lately, anyhow!
Hey Lindsey how much did you take to go against the "RIGHT THING TO DO". What did you get paid to thwart the U.S Constitution? NO WEALTHY PERSON SHOULD HOLD OFFICE. They do not understand the working class that support this world!
DeMint quit, so I guess since he's the senior Sen. from S.C. now, he gots to gets in front da camera.Sorry ass.
Graham is just another RINO political parasite.
We are screwed with people like him in RNC, and that's why the media loves to put him in front of their cameras.
The Tony Romo of DC! Just when you think the guy is on the right track...he literally throws it all away. There's no question in my mind that this guy is "bought-n-paid for". He's a major cog in the Washington Machine because he just goes with the flow and not with what should be his convictions.
But hey I'm a Pats fan...lol.
As someone who lives in SC, I can safely say, it's time for Graham to take a hike. Graham is one of the biggest examples of all that is wrong with the modern Republican Party.
Graham is a pompous RINO that is just looking out for himself.. He will be challenged next time around !
Now is the time to find the qualified candidate to primary Graham.
The he can join his fellow traitor, Trent Lott, as a scum sucking lobbyist.
Let's do it.
Graham talks a good game but when it counts he folds like an accordian- shame on him and the other frauds - we need Gov Palin to step up and start to make things happen rt now!!!!!
If you looked up the definition of "RINO" in the proverbial political dictionary, Lindsay Graham's picture would be there along with John McCain, and Scott Brown.
I may move to South Carolina so I can campaign and vote against this traitor. It's sycophants like this that have turned this into a one-party political system. Two-party implies opposition. Our current system masquerades as 2-party but is populated with ayholes like Graham. Treasonous behavior like this not only erases opposition but greases the wheels for the pretender.
I've said many times in the past that Congress is only made of one Party, it just has two faces. And they play that old game of good cop bad cop for our benefit.
Wake up America. Quit playing American idle with our country. Stand up for something and quit worrying about what other people think.
He has been great on the current gun debate. Few people go on national TV these days, sitting next to DiFi no less, and announce proudly that he owns an AR-15 and isn't about to outlaw them.
Lindsey Graham is worthless to this country. He might as well change his stripes to Obama Democrat. He should be relieved of his command at the earliest opportunity.
I'm tired of fighting both the Democrats and the Republicans at the same time. We have enough on our hands with just the Democrats. The Republican Party is nothing but a joke at this point. And Obama is laughing at the joke.
He even admits later that this deal does nothing for the country, yet he’s gonna vote for a tax increase because of politics, saying on national TV that Obama won and even congratulated him.
Cue the twilight sound music.
That's his payback to Obama for legalizing homos in the military. Graham is an (in-the-closet) Air Force colonel.
limpy, there's something on your nose, brown or white I'm not sure but I'm guessing whatever it is, is illegal.
Winning an election does not mean free rein, if it did then limpy, you would not be needed as the potus could do as he pleases. Apparently your new way of represnting is to vote present, let bad laws and legislation go through that you are exempt from. You and your redundant go along to get along crowd have constantly caved, on just about every issue. Those few things you haven't caved on were merely a distraction from the man behind the curtain that you chose to play the game with, so things could be done without people knowing, you have sold the citizenry into tyranny.
I'm guessing, and this is based purely on you tenure and lack of spine that you've spent to many hours hanging out in the senate shower room fantasizing. Maybe some cold water on your face and public humiliation along with confiscation of all your ill gotten gains would be a reality check.
You see we don't like you. We don't like your type. We don't trust you. You have no idea what everyday people go through. You are the people that created all the problems this country faces. By placing us in this situation you have shown your value to society, your intellect, and your motivations. Each and every act bears the fruit of corruption, enslavement, tyranny.
We all know taxes are going up. We all know spending is going up. We all know failure is coming. How do we know this? Simple, your actions thus far prove this! The only things you and your associates have proven they are capable of doing is, being incompetent at anything they gaze upon or set their minds to.
Solving of our problems are simple. Anyone with the slightest ability to count change could do it. Those that have run out of money and credit have been forced to do it. But those that vote themselves, yes limpy I'm speaking of you, into our wallets can only see more of the same. That same is spending and penalizing those they take, no force the money from.
Guess what, they are running out! Yep that's right, either by your governance or choosing to no longer participate they are running out. So go a head and spend more, go a head and print more. Just don't ask us for our share of the fare or ask us to ride on the bus you are driving, because we know the brakes failed and there is a steep grade up a head!
We were so disgusted with Obama and his communism that somehow many of us started to believe that the National Socialist Republican's Party would be the place where we could rally. It was a lie then and it will be a lie in 2016.
I think we'd do better to register as Democrats and try to help them cannibalize themselves from within. I don't think I could stomach another Republican.
Someone please tell me the Bush bimbettes are not running for office in a southern state in 2014, Please!
I watched him say this this morning and the first thing I said was "I can't believe what I just heard" and the second thing I said was "Yes I can".
Lindsey Graham just tweeted this: The assault weapons ban didn't work then. It's not going to work now. I will oppose it.
Do you believe him? Yeah, me either.
It's theatre. The only reason Graham is opposing it,is because the dems have the votes to pass it.They probably have Grassley's vote http://www.southwestiowanews.com/council_bluffs/news/grassley-gun-control-should-include-other-weapons/article_5737b43c-4a48-11e2-b7cc-0019bb2963f4.html and some other repub,If they didn't Graham would have been for it. The whole game is to pretend your a Conservative for OUR benefit, while at the same time passing Obama's agenda.because they are all lefties in both parties.
Well, he won't like it, but he'll vote for it, 'cause the future of the country is at stake, dontcha know.
Surely, South Carolina can do better than this tool... how about Senator Trey Gowdy? Sounds good to me.
Virtually the entire repub legislature and Establishment,is left wing and fully onboard Obama and the NWO One World Government agenda. The repubs aren't caving at all. They are complicit Traitors and are only pretending to be Conservative. They have helped Obama pass everything,when they could have stopped everything,including Obamacare in committee.
In that interview Graham also mentioned he was "GoingTo oppose any Assault Weapon's Ban". There you go. More theatre as cover for him caving on the "Fiscal Cliff" so he can pretend to sound Conservative. That also should tell you that they have been vote trading andhave enough repub votes to help Obama pass an assault Weapon's Ban. The usual squish Graham,got released to oppose Obama on Assault Weapon's, because they are going to have Grassley and some other repub at the very least,vote for the Ban. Make no mistake,the repubs in the House who could easily bury any anti-Assault Weaon legislation will pass it. That will be the absolute Final Betrayal. WE have to start a New Third Party to replace the repubs. They cannot be reformed. They are Rotten to the core! We also under NO circumstances allow ourselves to turn in any of our Firearms!
Are we to assume that weapons assault people by using the term "assualt weapons". I have not seen one weapon that assualts anyone. If we change the language and say use semi-automatic weapons or automatic weapons does that mean guns shoot instantly or quickly? No,it does not. A person puts that process in motion so perhaps this will force the democrats to address the mentally distrubed person behind the gun. Maybe. Moreover, lets get to the foundation and arguments that the founders presented for the individual right to bare arms. Now, that will explain the importance of the 2nd amendment.
The only problem is that they are not capable of articulating or defending what the founding fathers intended when they created the right to bear arms, I have more faith that the Jets will make the playoffs then having republicans articulating anything.
(The Jets were eliminated from the playoffs).
You know this could be a good time, over the holidays, for the republicans to bone-up on the reasons why the 2nd amendment is in the Constitution and share it with their colleges. I mean it's like the Constitution is not even apart of the debate when most of the questions and answers are found there.
Thank you. There is almost something Great about having the repubs about to hand us the Final Betrayal,in that there are no longer any more illusion's that we can effect any kind of change through them.They are Finished! They have most definitively reached 'Whig'party status and have to be replaced as soon as possible. We are going to need a New Party and a New Conservative Leader to lead us through the,what i unfortunately believe is the Horror we are about to face. Needless to say i believe we will come out the Winner's when all is said and done.
