Clyburn: 'Elephant dung all over the place'

Clyburn: 'Elephant dung all over the place'

House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) today repeated his earlier suspicions that the Democrat’s Senate candidate in South Carolina might have been a “plant.”

“I believe he’s someone’s plant,” Clyburn said this morning on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I saw in the Democratic primary elephant dung all over the place.” Clyburn has called on state officials to investigate how Alvin Greene won the Senate primary last week. Greene, who was essentially unknown before Tuesday’s primary, is unemployed and is allegedly facing felony charges for showing pornographic images to a college student. Clyburn said he suspects campaign laws were broken by Greene, who allegedly tried to pay his registration fees with cash and had no previous political backing in the state.

He’s gotta come up with something other than attacking over 100,000 Dhimmies who voted for this asshat. The guy can’t carry a conversation in a lunch sack, but that didn’t stop the Democrats from voting for him anyway.

His name was first on the list of candidates and appeared to be the mostly likely to be African-American.
That’s why and how...

That’s racist Clyburn. Your fellow dem is every bit as intelligent as you are.

More so, I would expect. He didn’t even have to campaign. They chose him because they had no idea who he was, unlike you commie.

DemocRATs arrogance and their refusal to believe that the American people are disgusted with the Elitist traitors in Congress can’t be mollified by their playing these games. They shoved DeathCare and the rest of their garbage down our throats; November we shove it right back where the sun don’t shine.

It’s really not hard to explain. Blacks in a black primary picked the black candidate over the white candidate. It’s no different than how Obama got a majority in the 2008 presidential primary. Clyburn of course knows this.

They didn’t seem to have a problem with Greene when they were taking his $10 grand filing check. Now he’s a disaster for them.

They still haven’t shown that he actually paid the $10,400. It was ruled unconstitutional and can be bypassed, in some cases.

Lost on all the Dems is that even if a Republican paid his entry fee, all that did was get his name on the ballot. It was still people voting who elected him.

Wasn’t Clyburn also the one who claimed he heard the “N” word at least 15 times while walking across the street during the healthcare vote? Then claimed later (to Olbertard) that he was receiving racist faxes, but never showed any of them?

Even if this accusation is true, and with the left any accusation aimed at Republicans is "true" because their central problem is their inability to discern true and untrue, the Democrats have been planting ringers in their own races and in GOP races in the Carolinas since just before the Fall of Rome.

I think the time has come to take a look at the perverse relationships between Party and State. The state has no business playing any role in deciding who is and who is not the nominee of political Partys, or what constitutes a political Party.

The primary system, most spectacularly the presidential primary system, is manifestly unconstitutional - it comes very close to being an establishment of religion.

The taxpayers shouldn't foot the bill for the nomination process. A Party should nominate it's candidate using whatever method it decides is reasonable, as in a convention, and then the Party can pay the filing fee.

If I had a supply of elephant spoor, I would be happy to shovel enough to block Clyburn's driveway.

All that happened was that liberals flocked to vote in the high-interest GOP governor’s race to cause trouble, leaving almost no one at home to vote for for Mr. Rawl.

“Greene” is a historical and patriotic name in South Carolina history, those walking into the polls without a clue and confronted with the Democrat ballot voted for him.

The totals in the Democrat primary were very small compared to those in the simultaneous GOP election.

Possibly this was simply a dress rehearsal to debug an election rigging system controlled by someone other than the DNC.

That is what scares them.

Interesting that they paint the right as illiterate dolts, barely able to keep the front of our shirts clean. Then, when they step is the elephant dung as it were, all the sudden we are evil geniuses.

Also, if this guy is a plant, where did they find a black Republican? There aren’t any in the party according to Olberblow..

Yes, and the Democrats attacking Greene are showing their own racism and prejudice. It is interesting how they are portraying him as "unemployed" and child like. But they conveniently leave out that he went to college and majored in political science and then served in the military. He has only been "unemployed" for the six months since he left service to our nation. Somehow the liberal Democrats all forget about that part.

The only interview I have seen with Greene makes him seem a lot smarter and better as a candidate than how his enemies in the Democratic party portray him. Greene stays on point, and pushes an agenda that is probably smarter than that proposed by most Democrats. He actually sounds like a Democratic version of a Tea Party candidate, and he sounds more competent than the typical Democrat, but of course the bar is pretty low in that contest.

An example from his interview:

TR What do you think makes you a better candidate than DeMint?

[Greene]: We have more unemployed now than any other time in South Carolina's history, so something isn't working. We spend two times more on inmates than students. Priorities are not in order. I want to make a difference and Jim--the incumbent Sen. Jim DeMint--he's against the health care reform. They're trying to repeal the health care law that was passed. The Republicans are trying to repeal the health care bill that was signed into law recently. Things like that. That's the difference. I'm for health care reform. And getting folks to work here.

Read a real interview with Greene here.
