"One thing I think we ought to do, other than blocking his agenda and controlling spending, is trying to solve a hard problem like Social Security, and if we show our willingness to work with him on that, I think that would be well-received by the American people," Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told WVOC-AM.

No they don’t.

And is Graham up for a primary challenge in ‘12?

Well Senator RINO, I think we Conservatives should all send some money to who ever challenges you in the Sen Primary in 2012. BTW I don’t even live in W.Va, and I will support them

What does Obama want to do with SS?

He probably wants to seize the 401(k)s and put those dollars in a "lockbox" to bail out SS.

And when I say "lockbox", I mean give the money to his pals at Goldman Sachs to play with.

I say we work with him as well!! Have him assume the position first! Have him bend over just like he would bend over for say a Saudi King or an Emperor of Japan. After he assumes the position then we can work our boots firmly into his backside until he produces a birth certificate that has what hospital he was born in. After he produces that then we will stop booting his rear end after he agrees to repeal his Democratic Socialist laws he signed.

For all the RINO hunters out there, this dope should be Target #1. He is in a safe GOP state so there is no reason for him to be the Republican nominee for senator ever again.

No Lindsey, they don't need to show "willingness" to the RATS or the RAT president.

It is a shame that South Carolina law does not allow for a recall vote, given that Graham's current term will not end until 2014.

"In an upcoming interview he granted to the New York Times Magazine, Graham stated that the Tea Party is destined to 'die out' ..."

I’d have more respect for Graham if he told 0bama that he had to be willing to work with the GOP.

Unfortunately his term is not up until 2014 - he got swept back in office in 2008 on the Obama liberal train...

This is just preparing the way for the blame game after the democrat’s defeat. When they lose, they will be saying things like “the Republicans won’t cooperate” “partisan politics” “won’t share power” “hate poor people” “hate blacks”.

The reality is the democrats are the ones who practice partisan politics, won’t share power and hate poor people and blacks.

Lindsey will be coming into tea partier's view soon. We're culling a mighty big herd and it takes time.

Goober Graham doesn’t seem to be getting the message.
He’s still living in his “Gang of 14 Gangsters” mentality.

Demint’s Gang will soon be arriving in the senate.
My prediction: Demints “Gang” will steamroll Lindsey’s “Gang”

These jokers are already lifting the football away from Charlie Brown. Couple this with the announced measly spending cuts, and this takes the wind right out of my sails. Conservative voters should be seething and calling these yahoos.

Gramnesty is damn lucky that he was re-nomintated by the South Carolina GOP before there was a Tea Party movement. If he had to run for re-nomination in 2010 instead of 2008 he would be toast. He obvioulsy does not get the message.
