Maverick Graham is Still a Maverick (RINO Graham defends RINO McCain, responds to J.D. Hayworth)
Fox ^ | 2010-07-20

Posted on 07/20/2010 7:00:04 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

With one word, "yes," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, solidified his maverick status and no doubt fanned the flames of conservative resentment already running high against him, as he voted Tuesday in the Senate Judiciary Committee to support the nomination of Elena Kagan for a seat on the Supreme Court, the lone Republican to do so.

"I'm going to vote for her because I believe this last election has consequences," Graham said of Kagan, adding that her positions are "in the mainstream" and saying it was "not a difficult decision."

As if to underline his conservative status, Graham reminded, "No one tried to beat Obama harder than me, except perhaps John McCain," but Graham said senators shouldn't replace the president's judgment with their own, but merely ask, is the nominee qualified, of good character, and a judge, not a politician? To that, Graham answered yes.

‘Maverick’ sure is a maligned and grossly misused term, these days.

Lindsay Graham is a moron.

Kagan has all but tattoed on her forehead that she will be a radical activist on the court.

I sincerely hope that South Carolina’s GOP has someone lined up to remove Graham in four years from now.

I will gladly make a financial contribution to whomever that candidate is.

Hmmmm - I wonder if it’s true that these weasles are forced to run and be good little Rino’s OR ELSE:

*Unless the “Maverick” behaves himself in his lifetime of fakery in politics, the Commie/Marxists have vowed to release the tapes of McCain spilling his guts on his fellow POW’s and any wartime information he had (ok, ok - he was tortured - so what?). To keep his past and underhanded deeds in the Senate buried, McCain agreed to run for a lifetime seat in the Senate so that he stays the puppet for his Commie/Marxist handlers.

**The commie/Marxists will release the videos/pictures/audio tapes of Lindsey with his boyfriends unless he jumps in to broker half-@ss lame attempts to get along with evil while appearing to speak for the GOP and bowing to political correctness.

Blackmail is alive and well in Washington D.C. and one is a fool not to acknowledge that fact. There is a reason McCain & Lindsey are BF’s - they both have humiliating skeletons in their closets.

"I'm going to vote for her because I believe this last election has consequences,"

I want to break stuff every time I hear some piece of crap say that. Words can't express my disdain for that imbecilic mindset. The consequence of a good Senator's election would be an automatic no vote for liberal Supreme Court appointees.

This smart mouthed punk is making like he has no choice in the matter.

And his radar is way off, she's as "mainstream" as Mark Foley's sex life. Just to listen to her try to hide her far-left views behind a smile and finely honed 'ugly girl' wit makes me curse the day her parents met.

“I’m going to vote for her because I believe this last election has consequences,”

Democrats didn’t care about that when they lied about and voted against Robert Bork.

Supreme POS RINO, grahamnesty, says, "it is also our obligation to honor elections and protect the court....and making sure that hard-fought elections have meaning."

IF elections are hard-fought, FAIR (no voter intimidation, foreign campaign donations, felons and dead people voting, scumbag union and ACORN criminal activities, etc.) , and NOT an attempted Socialist/Communist takeover of our country... DUMBASS.

Conservatives, the Tea Party, or SOMEONE, ANYONE needs to put up a qualified candidate for office against this traitor, and put EVERYTHING we have into defeating the ambulance-chasing "gang" (of 14) member from SC.

“I'm going to vote for her because I believe this last election has consequences”

Except of course those last elections won by Republicans, right Lindsey?

The very last reasons anyone ever was able to give to support Lindsey Graham were his Pro-Life record and the usual Giuliani-esque establishment GOP talking point about Strict Constructionist judges.

Lindsey has now blown the judges argument out of the water.

What is even left, Lindsey? What? Beyond Free Republic and everything else - I mean this as a serious question now: what reason is left that a Conservative should support Lindsey Graham when we can't even count on him to stand firm on Strict Constructionist judges?

Seriously, let's say FR is too hard on Republicans - too purist, too demanding, unrealistic. Why should even a “mainstream” grassroots Conservative support you, Lindsey, when you can't even be relied upon to come through with the bare minimum you establishment Moderates promise?

Even the “Strict Constructionist” argument has now been nullified from your defense, Lindsey. What's left?

This is what I'm afraid of. Just like Lieberman. Then, the Dems can send Juan back to the Senate.

Hmmmm...actually, this really could work...Juan has threatened to jump to the Dems more than once, hasn't he? By adopting the "indie" mantle, he can cash in on his "mavericky" persona and continue to play the Pubbies vs Dems with impunity.

Of course, if he does go Independent, the really interesting thing will be to see which (ostensible) Republicans continue to back him.

It's too early for popcorn. Another donut, please!

If the Republicans had any brass, they would toss Pandsey Grahamensty off the committee. He is a disgrace. To the party and to the residents of South Carolina.

If Michael Steele had just one gram of one testicle, he’d publicly demand that Linseed switch parties immediately and get it over with.

And so goes the GOP.
