South Carolina's Lindsey Graham is a flop. He pretends to be a conservative, but sells out conservatives and insults them while doing so. He pretends to be effective at reaching across party lines, but the only thing he effectively does is help the other party.How did Sen. Lindsey Graham win the South Carolina primary over Republican challenger Buddy Witherspoon? If Lindsey Graham is the best that South Carolina can do the rest of the nation should seriously reconsider South Carolina’s statehood.
He inhabits the Senate seat of Strom Thurmond, legendary for great attention to his South Carolina constituents, but Graham spends most of his time trailing behind John McCain like a valet as McCain criss-crosses the country in pursuit of the presidency. He called Ted Kennedy "one of the most principled men I've ever met."
In sum, in the words of conservative movement stalwart Richard Viguerie, "Lindsey Graham is part of the problem."-- Quin Hillyer
Graham one of the Senators that I pronounced as a “ ex-Senator walking” because of his hand in helping destroy the Republican Party over illegal immigration also known as Comprehensive Immigration Reform was selected by South Carolina Republicans to go against the Democrat choice in November to represent South Carolinians.
Sen. Graham will face Democrat primary winner Bob Conley, 42, an engineer from North Myrtle Beach who is more of a Conservative than Lindsey Graham. Hell Hillary Clinton is more Conservative than Lindsey Graham. But Conley was once a registered Republican and South Carolina GOP official.
Graham on the other hand is a McCain Schwarzenegger Republican who holds no particular allege to Republican and/or Conservative ideas.
He praises liberals, but reserves particular venom for conservatives who disagree with him. The most infamous example came at a speech to the utterly radical Hispanic group La Raze -- it was bad enough that he spoke to them, much less what he said -- when he described what he would do to opponents of the awful immigration proposal he helped Ted Kennedy craft: "We're going to tell the bigots to shut up."What a topsy-turvy South Carolina November election when the Democrat is the Conservative and the Republican is, well the Republican is "John McCain boot-licker" Lindsey Graham.
The idea that only a bigot could oppose the Kennedy amnesty plan was a recurring theme with Graham: On This Week, he told George Stephanopoulos that opponents were like those in earlier years who put up signs that said "No Catholics, no Jews, no Irish need apply."--Quin Hillyer
What is wrong with South Carolina Republicans? Lindsey Graham what a joke!
