Graham: Bill will be damaging (Lindsey demands bipartisanship from Democrats)
The Post & Courier, Charleston, SC ^ | 2009-12-22

Posted on 12/22/2009 12:56:29 AM PST by rabscuttle385

With a Senate health care bill on track to be passed before Christmas without a single Republican vote, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham says his biggest concern about what he calls a "sleazy process" is the long-term damage it will do on Capitol Hill.

"You are legitimizing partisan outcomes rather than looking at the best interest of the nation and that is to hold hands and do big things together," Graham said in an interview Monday from Washington.

"It's the first time a major piece of legislation has passed along partisan lines," he said, "a departure from what has been a long-standing accepted principle up here that massive changes like Social Security and Medicare will require bipartisanship because that's good for the country."

He can make great statements against the bad guys, and then, inexplicably, he turns into one.

Another plea for a cut of the action. Grahamnesty letting it be known he can be bought in the name of “working together.”

Gee Lindsey, you think? You and McCain have been helping them in their sleazy process for years and now they don’t need you. LOL, you are an idiot Lindsey.

LOL. This from the guy who wants to use the UN's Global Warming Junk Science as a basis for joining hands with John Kerry to impose a "compromise" CAP AND TAX bill on the American public. Good old "reaching across the aisle" Lindsey Graham. Give me a break.

Graham’s an idiot. He’s like a Dad that lets his teenage daughter date and run around with all kinds of degenerate low lifes and then when she comes home pregnant with a dog collar, a spike thru her nose and tattoos all over herself he tries the tough love thing. Too late. What a fool.

Yeah I'm sure Lindsey likes holding hands and all the delicious things that it leads to.

That fruit loop wants bipartisanship alright.

The only proper bipartisanship on this piece of sludge is for a few not-too-far-left dhimmirats to wake up, smell the Constitutional coffee, and realize that it is illegal and immoral for the Federal government to be engaged IN ANY MANNER in the health care of the American people...including Medicare and Medicaid...other than caring for wounded/injured military veterans.

But, that’s not likely to happen. Now that the left has begun to really flex their new found muscle, the path to socialism has been brightly lighted, and they can clearly see their way to their socialist utopia.

It’s time to take back the country.

...hold hands and do big things together...

Meanwhile, the GOP can't see that the democrats hands are in a fist.

Just like he voted against convicting impeached Bill Clinton - after making appearances and speeches denouncing his actions. What a backboneless little whackjob.

Just like McCain. The actual effect of what they legislate unto the country is of little concern compared to how the Democrat Senators treat them in the process.

Sissyboy is just hoping they’ll ‘reach across the aisle’ - ie: throw him some of that bribery pork they’ve been spreading around to neighboring states.

I just watched a short film about Teddy Roosevelt- and what a STARK STARK contrast he was to htis present ‘administration’. There he was- an honest politician who VALUED WE THE PEOPLE’S opinion MORE THAN he anythign else- he would NOT let special interests drive his administraiton- and that pissed a LOT of politicians off- but the people loved it-

Contrast with what Harry Reid said about Nelson and Landriuew when he basically called other senators and godertnoros ‘stupid’ for ‘not playing the game and gettign everythign they could’ out of health care ‘perks’ built into the bill.

This present administration disgusts me to no end. Whenever I’ve suggested that the GOP be wiped out and HONEST folks replce them, I’m told ‘You just don’t understand politics- honest peopel would get eaten alive’ Yeah? Ted didn’t- and he rooted out all the corruption within politics that he could- he didn’t compromise- he let the BUMS know in no uncertain terms that he was goign to go to the people IF they tried playing hardball

Our president himself today said “Stop Carping about hte health bill” to hte American people- apparently he ‘cares so much about us’ that he feels it’s his duty to tell us to shut hte hell up and stop opposing HIM and HIS policies IF we think there might be problems with it- apparently Americans aren’t supposed to questio nthe dear leader any longer- and apparently, Harry Reid thinks that whenever a democrat opens his mouth these days, what is said needs to be made a golden rule that can never be quesitoned or changed

Our freakin governmenthtese days is disgusting beyond beleif- - they are a bunch of LIARS CROOKS AND FRAUDSTERS who are throwing their criminal activity straight in our faces and daring anyone to stop them- This administration and his little cronies are spitting in our faces and kicking us i nthe teeth these days, and anyone that vioces an opinion exposing htese facts gets the SEIU sicked o nthem

Teddy would have also thrown out bums like Graham and McCain, or made it impossible for them to commit their crimes against hte people with hteir dirty politics a LONG time ago-

Teddy also said somethign like ‘ANYONE who advocates foreignism in this country is NO American’ (Hint about who he as refering to- begins with BO)

Our country DESPERATELY NEEDS another HONEST mine-sweeper president to clean out the crap and corruption in government- get rid of the scum so the good decent folks hwo truly want to serve AMERICANS, and NOT their own special interests, can serve in public office and bring htis coutnry back to it’s former greatness instead of wallowing in this corrupt slimepit we’re now mired in
