Graham: 'I want my time to count' (will "work...across the aisle" to accomplish Obama agenda)
The Hill, Washington, DC ^ | 2009-12-03 | Jim Snyder

Posted on 12/03/2009 3:22:25 PM PST by rabscuttle385

(snip)

“Why did I do this? I want my time to count. I want to be seen as someone who can solve a hard problem by working with my colleagues across the aisle. I want to do something that matters. I can’t think of a better use of my time than to work with Democrats and Republicans to break our dependency on foreign oil, to create jobs for our next generation of Americans that will never go to China. And yes, leave behind a cleaner planet.”

“Solving” hard problems? Do you accomplish that by “doing something”? Sure. Charging at them like a RINO.

Then your political time is short, Little Miss Lindsay. Your tone-deafness to your own voters is astonishing, but not surprising.

unacceptable for America to send $1 billion a day overseas to buy foreign oil from countries that do not like us very much

The proper response here, of course, is "Drill drill drill!" off the coasts, in the Gulf, In Alaska, In the Arctic Ocean, wherever there is oil for the recovery.

It wouldn’t sound so wretchedly self-serving if our jobs hadn’t already been shipped to China, our oil and gas capped so that we ARE dependent on the mid-east, and the email conflagration that exposed globull warming as just another scam to enrich the rich and slam everybody else.

It’s like watching a slow motion train wreck in DC.

I’m almost...almost to the point of saying something that would be decidedly hostile and probably trigger an unfortunate visit from the PTB.

Your exactly right! They are across the aisle for a reason!!! Does anyone remember those who reached across the aisle over slavery? But yet who doesn’t know President Lincoln?

I want my time to count. I want to be seen as someone who can solve a hard problem by working with my colleagues across the aisle. I want to do something that matters. I can’t think of a better use of my time than to work with Democrats and Republicans.

It is not about you, you attention-starved twerp. It is about doing the right thing for your constituents in particular and the nation in general.

If you had consistent principles and standards, you wouldn't be 'wanting' to do anything.

Aww, geez, you know, I wish these frigging clowns would just go away...

Traitors...any help to the Democrats is treason against the country. In spite of McCain’s honorable service - when he helps the Dems, he helps the very same ideology that jailed and tortured him. Is he stupid, or just trying to make sure he’s playing for what he thinks is the “winning side” (as Whittaker Chambers stated...). I can’t tell...

I seriously hope we can evict this duo (and Snowe, Collins, et al) before they can damage us any further.

Can Graham’s state recall and remove him? He’s vulnerable in 2010?

to create jobs for our next generation of Americans that will never go to China.

Well that's certainly what Bama wants...Something we can do here that won't be farmed out to China...

Well it can't be anything industrial...And it can't be farming...

I guess we can all install weatherstripping to all the houses of welfare families...Well no, those jobs will be taken by our new immigrants from the south...

Keep thinking about it moron, maybe it'll come to you in a dream...

“...want to do something that matters,...And yes, leave behind a cleaner planet.”

I read that quote in the excerpt above, and reflected on a woman in her twenties in a soft pink sweater, an empty expression in her eyes, and a smile upon her face.

She really means what she says, but doesn’t know a damned thing about what she is saying.

I believe I knew such a young woman in the 1960’s.

Some just never seem to grow up.

Translation Graham: “I want to INVENT problems so that we can ‘reach across the isle’ to work on these non problems that we’ve made to look like problems so that Americans can stand in awe and say ‘Mu my, look at how wonderful Graham was when he ‘fixed’ all these non problems 5that he claism are problems that needed fixing”
