Skip to comments.Lindsey Graham: Immigration would kill climate bill
Posted on 04/23/2010 5:35:06 PM PDT by rabscuttle385
A top Senate negotiator on climate change believes that a sudden turn by Senate Democrats to immigration could destroy any hope of a major climate and energy bill this year.
This comes out of left field, said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), after hearing that Democratic leaders may now push immigration reform ahead of a climate bill. Im working as earnestly as I can to craft climate and energy independence, clean air and jobs, and now were being told that were going to immigration. We havent done anything to prepare the body of the country for immigration.
This destroys the ability to do something on energy and climate, he added, questioning whether the Senate could take up both immigration and climate before November.
Graham has been working for months with Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.) and Joe Lieberman (O-Conn.) on a bipartisan climate change bill that could garner enough votes to pass the Senate. The trio is planning to release the bill Monday.

You say that like that's a bad thing, Lindsey!
Can’t wait until this punk is voted out.
Kill the bills Lindsey. Do something right for a change.
I think we have to get rid of McCain first.
Thankfully, it looks like Arizona is going to make that happen come August.
Well then let’s do it!!!
We have to endure this idiot for another 4 years.What a shame.
Sorry Lindsey, own up to your LIFESTYLE now, please, and then let others make the call as to whether they’re ok.
But please, get away from the BLACKMAIL that you’re OBVIOUSLY being subjected to.
There are a LOT of really CONSERVATIVE GAY Republicans...just let the world know, please.
I think they should take both immigration and cap and scam up in about the last week of October.
oh stuff it Lindsey...no one cares what you think. No one. You’re being played like a violin.
Miss Linseed fancies herself as a some kind of grand strategist. He should just shut up and be thankful the Dems haven’t outed him...are still content to blackmail him.
Climategate killed the climate bill.........what an empty headline from the rino.
Someone please lock up Lindsey in that Log Cabin....he is one Liberal nutjob
Why can’t they both be annihilated?
Standing in “the middle of the road” in the current political climate isn’t a very bright idea. Lindsey is an idiot.
HE MAY AS WELL BE A PHUCKING DEMOCRAT! WHAT THE HELL!
Listen linsey you fag bastard--we don't want no "climate independence," whatever the hell that means to your diseased syphilitic brain. And we don't want to be "prepared" for your immigration shit, whatever that is.
Get it, asshole? Please f* off and die now, sh*t head.
Duh! Limpy grahamnesty has awoken, more like the Worm that got caught on concrete in a Rainstorm! Grahamesty is an embarassment to the concept of Intelligence and is a Suicidal RINO, just as all the Appeasers to Hitler, Stalin. Mao, and lesser Tinhat Despots like IMANUTJOB and OBOZO HUSSEIN......:-(
Let it die!
Ya see Kindsey, THIS is what happes when you try to appease the other side. They are in danger of losing a huge voting block, THAT is why they’re pushing immigration. Now - Please take your assigned seat UNDER the bus.
Good. Let’s kill them all.
He is not even pretending to be some sort of 'independent' Republican anymore.
Gosh! Is Lindsey “Pink Panties” Grahamesty yet one more Lover of Men and/or Boys? That would explain his bizarre behavior, especially if the lover was a Demorat...:-(
Arizona stood for the rule of law today.
Small Riot Breaks Out at Immigration Protest (Video Of Riot Arizona)
Lindsay you little pussy shut your damn pie hole.
What is maddening is that it is stupid beyond belief!
We desperately need energy independence : drill, exploit oil and coal, build nuclear plants as fast as we can.
But doing a it at the price of wasting trillions$ more on "climate" neutralizes whatever economic benefit and national financial health 'energy independence' can provide.
There's stupidity and then there's industrial strength stupidity.
The absolute insanity of humans who think they can do something about “climate” is gobsmacking. It’s get the white coats time, really.
We don’t want either of them!!!!
“Gosh! Is Lindsey Pink Panties Grahamesty yet one more Lover of Men and/or Boys? That would explain his bizarre behavior, especially if the lover was a Demo rat...:-(”
Yea, pretty sad...he was a GOOD GUY once, despite his ‘preferences’, but I do think they got someone on the ‘inside’ that could blackmail him.
He obviously loves the Senate, but he WILL NOT COME CLEAN (so to speak) here...bummer.
“We havent done anything to prepare the body of the country for immigration.
Meaning what, Lindsay? We’ve heard about all the propaganda we can take.
Cap and tax is going to be rammed through using reconciliation.
How the heck did this leftist POS win the GOP primary in one of the most conservative states in the Union?
The healthcare bill fiasco should have killed the Republicans signing on to ANYTHING with the CommieRats.
Is JD pulling ahead on the polls?
If they can pass Amnesty then they can relax. All the rest of their fascist agenda will come in time. When the many millions of new “citizens” get their voting cards the Left won’t have to worry about any sort of political opposition ever again.

That’s the plan.
Oh no, we want arguments on when and which bill first all during the summer. Then immigration in Sept and cap and trade in the first of October. This prolongs the fuse keeping a steady burn building to an explosion in November.

I AM SICK AND TIRED OF THIS EGO MANIAC, WHO'S MAIN AND ONLY PRIORITY IS HIS OWN 'FACE TIME', AND BE THE CENTER OF ATTENTION!
And just how ya gonna "prepare" us Lindsay? A little KY jelly?
I don’t understand why he wasn’t voted out the last time he ran. He had already called Americans who were against amnesty bigots. Is there something in the water in South Carolina?
Lindsey do you understand that they are playing all of you Rino’s?
They are keeping all of you off balance for a reason. Wise up all Rino’s and Blue Dogs. These Socialists are not going to quit and you are a F*&King idiot to even give them lip service.
Just slightly smarter than the people who voted him in again!
Uber RINO Lindsey Ping
"Republican by day, Democrat by night."
Want on or off this ping list?
Just FReepmail me.
h/t to martin_fierro for the graphic
Didn’t he say that about health care reform?
Both will destroy America as we know it, BUT ... immigration will get them votes from newly minted citizens... the DEMOCRATS are ALL about locking themselves into gaining power in the future and destroying the ability of the USA to recover back its soul. As such, immigration takes priority...
The four horsemen of the Obama Apocalypse - huge spending, socialized healthcare, cap-and-tax, immigration amnesty - marches on.
But Paul Shanklin could use it as his next parody tune.
Did anyone else hear the caller to Rush today say that the bill specifies that all existing woodburning stoves must be destroyed?
Because no good solid Conservative took him on in the Primary. Without good opposition early on, these treasonous Libs just keep geting reelected and taking our precious Republic further down the tube.
