Graham says hes ready to make a deal on climate change legislation (wants to be 60th vote)
The Regional Business Journal, Charleston, SC ^ | 2010-01-06 | Mike Fitts

Posted on 01/07/2010 6:13:25 AM PST by rabscuttle385

Sen. Lindsey Graham is ready to be the 60th Senate vote to get the climate change and energy bill passed, he told a Midlands audience Tuesday at Harbison State Forest.

“Since they’ve got no Republicans but me, business is open,” Graham said.

Graham has been criticized by his own party for pursuing bipartisan resolutions on such issues as illegal immigration and possible filibusters of judicial nominees. And he believes that the cap-and-trade bills being debated this year are another occasion to do so, he told the audience at a forestry conference hosted by the S.C. Wildlife Federation.

He said he has worked with Democrats, including Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., to craft a bill he can support.

He ( Graham )said he has worked with Democrats, including Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., to craft a bill he can support.

“Craft” a bill?

its like he had some sort of creative ability...like he makes something of value instead of destroying America...which is what he is doing....

Lindsey Graham Not an American, Not a Republican, Not a real person but some royal in the Royal 100 Club. The Republican party should toss him out as he has proven that he is a left wing fascist anti-American.

What about those ‘high paying’ green jobs? LOL

Green means more taxpayer money flushed down the toilet.

Glen Beck yesterday was showing that with all the US mandates on domestic jobs China can easily produce green products cheaper than us and would steal those jobs too.

“IF GLOBAL WARMING GETS ANY WORSE, WE’RE GOING TO FREEZE TO DEATH!!!”

It’s “global warming”, not climate change they’re trying to fix. We need to keep reminding people, because we have been in a cooling trend for the last 8 years. They need to answer the question, “why is this happening if carbon emissions are at an all-time high?”. Calling it “global warming” is important because there will always be “climate change”. Let’s make them defend warming, because it’s pretty easy to convince people these days that the earth’s has “naturally” turned the corner and its getting cooler.

What a moron! “Global warming” is being discredited - perfect time for him to jump on the bandwagon. This legislation is going to cost all Americans - for no benefit. We need Senators who will actually look out for Americans’ interests, instead of playing political games.

The most difficult career challenge for Gramnesty to maintain a conservative appearance.

This guy is a true political psychopath. His move to be the 60th vote can only be the result of a big offer, made behind the scenes by Soros or something similar to Soros.

Another treasonous RINO.

South Carolina, you also have a gem of a patriot senator in Jim DeMint, who is in stark contrast with this clown (1 out of 2 ain't bad!)

Grahamnesty may as well just follow along with Benedict Arlen Specter and cross the aisle.

Time to play hardball with Loafers. If he does this, then two things should happen, at least:

1) Graham receives no money from any Republican org at any level

2) The Republican Majority Leader takes ALL committee assignments away from Graham

Graham said he believes that Earth is warming considerably and that increased carbon emissions can’t be good for the climate. A good climate bill will improve the environment and increase energy security, he said.

“You don’t have to agree with Al Gore to get where I’m at,” he said.

Maybe I'm just thick, but I can't seem to tease out where the "disagreement" is.

I would like to BE at a large Tea Party where he showed up and be a part of the reaction.

Of course, he doesn't have the courage to come to a Tea Party. He'd rather party with algor.

(If nothing else, this shows that he is absolutely IGNORANT of Climategate and the massive scientific evidence that there IS no Anthropogenic GW).

What a dolt.
