If you are a political junkie like I am, or perhaps you just have a love of country and care about the integrity and safe guarding of it’s principles, this primary season is an exhilarating time. I’m already beginning to feel the heat of the grassroots fire that is starting all over this great country to rid Congress this primary season of the useless, spineless, middle of the road RINOs who have betrayed the Republican party time and time again. I have a list, rest assured, but one Senate race in particular stands out and I’m confident that Patriots all over this nation would agree with me that it would be one less parasite in the Senate if we could put Lindsey Graham in the unemployment line.
Lindsey Graham has been one of the wimpiest, wishy-washy, whiniest Republicans in the Senate. He’s been far more concerned with being politically expedient than being right or voting the values of the South Carolinians who elected him. He has represented compromise in it’s very worst form. In fact, let’s take a look back in history at the worthless Senate chair that Graham plants his derriere.
March 2010: What a busy little “bipartisan” bee Lindsey Grahamnesty has been lately.
He’s holding hands with John Kerry to push carbon caps and unrepentant global warming cultism.
He’s collaborating with the White House to close down Gitmo.
And he’s schmoozing with Chuckie Schumer on another illegal alien amnesty campaign — an effort that has been in the works for months.
Another death blow to Conservatives in March 2010:
Sen. Lindsey Graham broke ranks with fellow Republicans in a key vote Tuesday to confirm Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, signaling that there will be no united front for a filibuster of President Obama’s nominee.
In a 13-6 vote by the Senate Judiciary Committee, Graham of South Carolina was the sole Republican supporting Kagan to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens.
February 2013, strangely after a meeting with Obama to discuss Amnesty, Graham and McCain cave again:
Today, the Republican leadership, led by McConnell, Graham, and McCain, allowed the Senate to vote on Hagel.
They did so even though Hagel refused to turn over critical information about his financial dealings — information that the Senate had previously demanded. These Senators allowed the vote to proceed so even though they asserted that Hagel is unqualified, and they believe that Hagel holds dangerous views on Iran, Israel, and the United States: Remember, Hagel is the man who described the United States as the World’s Bully.
In fact, this month, the South Carolina Republican leaders put together a resolution to condemn Lindsey Graham for being ”fundamentally inconsistent with the principles of the South Carolina Republican Party.”
This blistering resolution included at least 30 prime examples for this accusation, including (with full details included on each):
– Voted to Confirm Obama radical appointment to Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection.
– Supported arming Al Quaeda / Muslim Brotherhood Revolutionaries in Syria
– Supported amnesty but not border control – and sided with Ted Kennedy over Jim Demint
– Supported abridging the First Amendment for those who criticize the government
– Supported massive new internet sales tax
