Graham gives Kagan positive reviews (McLame's lap dog loves liberals)
MSNBC - First Read ^ | 2010-05-19 | Ken Strickland

Posted on 05/19/2010 6:07:48 AM PDT by rabscuttle385

Though he withheld comment on whether he will ultimately support her Supreme Court nomination, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham gave Elena Kagan generally positive reviews following their meeting today.

"I think she's done a pretty good job" in her current position as U.S. solicitor general, Graham told reporters. He specifically cited her work on issues pertaining to the laws of war -- a topic he described as "something that's near and dear to my heart."

"For the most part, I think she's taken pretty well-reasoned positions about legal rights of detainees," he said. But he quickly added, "I really don't know how I'm going to view her until we have the hearings."

The main reason we have RINO’s like Graham & McCain is that the dems have them on tape doing something really, really embarrassing, IMO.

I can just imagine the stuff they have on limpy Lindsey.

Or...McCain and Graham are just scum-sucking traitorous maggots. Don't entirely discount that possibility.

So Pansey is OK with her stances on the 1st and 2nd Amendments, along with homos in the military. Got it, Pansey.

wouldn’t be surprised if this goes back to Hitlery Clinton’s theft of almost 1000 FBI files.

Question: Are Democrats blackmailing Lindsey Graham into supporting the destruction of our economy through Cap & Tax?

I think Flimsy is pandering to the nuke industry in his state, which will make a pretty penny on cap & tax. SC is one of the states most reliant on nukes for energy.

I have nothing against nuclear energy, but I do despise this hare-brained scheme.

It must be eating McCain up alive that he can’t find a cluster of cameras and pontificate about how well qualified Kagan is and how a president deserves his choice of judges.

The voters of South Carolina can. But unfortunately, as SC does not have a recall law, we've got to wait until 2014 to toss Lovely Lindsey in the dumpster.

At that time he'll pull a McLame and run to the right and remind everyone what a great conservative he's been. But we're gathering/saving evidence to the contrary. He'll have nowhere to hide come 2014.

Their ancestors bombarded Fort Sumter, but the people of SC are as quiet as church mice now and depending on “Lovable Lindsey” to “take care” of them. They must be mad. He makes Mark Sanford look good.

Let’s hope McLame loses in Arizona. It will send his mini-me and others like him a strong message and he might be frightened into acting like a genuine conservative.

This swearing in is a done deal. Each one of Obama’s nominees is worse than the last....at this rate, he’d likely replace Thomas with Holder.

Don’t forget Boehner.

After the catastrophe of November 2008, the GOP should have cleaned house and flushed these bits of detritus down the drain.

Hopefully the Tea Party will clean them out.

Grahamnesty is a closet Gay according to sources in South Carolina! and he is a close bosom friend of McPAIN; the Trojan Horse that is funded by Soros and Terayza Heinz while being the Lap Poodle of the Gloating Media!!
So we know that Grahamnesty will always Vote the Opposite of what a Conservative America Loving Patriot will Vote!
Grahamnesty is a disgusting Con-Artist!

The conservatives in SC are not happy with Graham...I attended a debate last night with mostly all of the candidates running for Henry Brown’s 1st district seat, and not one of them would support Graham. They did have many great things to say about Jim DeMint though. Graham is finished in this state.

Also, remember who Graham’s mentor was...John McCain also grabbed Scott Brown as soon as he won the election and Brown is starting to do some cross over like his mentor. Mc Cain..hopefully, JD will put the senator to bed and his influence in the senate will be minimal going forward...

This is a bare-faced L I E

Graham is being threatened or blackmailed. This woman is a life long dedicated Marxist who refused to allow the military recruiters on the Harvard campus, and the SCOTUS voted 8-0 to overturn it. She is a bulldyke Bill Ayers!!
