Another censure resolution for Lindsey Graham (MCLAME'S LAP DOG ALERT!)
CNN - Political Ticker ^ | 2010-08-05 | Charles Riley

Washington (CNN) – Sen. Lindsey Graham, the South Carolina Republican who often finds himself out of step with the most conservative elements of his party, was censured by yet another GOP county party committee Monday night.

In recent months, Graham has been censured by GOP party committees in Lexington and Charleston counties. On Monday, the Greenville GOP Executive Committee passed a censure resolution by a vote of 61-2.

"THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, the Greenville County Republican Party hereby issues this formal rebuke of Senator Graham for his cooperation and support of President Obama and the Democratic Party's liberal agenda for the United States," the resolution reads.

The resolution says Graham will no longer be invited to participate in meetings or other events sponsored by the Greenville County Republican Party, and alleges Graham has "abandoned the Republican platform."

As evidence, the resolution cites Graham's votes in favor of TARP, his stance on immigration and his vote in favor of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Graham has said he will also vote for Elena Kagan, President Obama's second nominee to the high court.

I vote we censure the South Carolina GOP for renominating Graham in 2008.

Next step is to elect a Conservative replacement in 2014.

When Lindsey ran in 2008, it would have taken a big name recognition Republican candidate to beat the RINO. However, Next election, it will not take much of a candidate to beat him.

The Democrat alternative to Lindsey last election was just horrible, even worse than Lindsey, if you can imagine that.

SC is a conservative state and the SC Republican party let us down badly.

Old saying,
“there is NO such thing as bad publicity.

When the heck is South Carolina going to quit pussy footing around and impeach this ass hat?
Throw him out with yesterdays cat crap.
