Lindsey Graham on 2012 (McLame's lap dog pushes Rudy for VP) (Barf Alert!)
National Review ^ | 2011-09-16 | Robert Costa

(snip)

Beyond South Carolina, Graham thinks the GOP should look to all corners of the country, “our pretty deep pool,” for its vice-presidential nominee. The Northeast, he predicts, could be the place to find a leader who balances the ticket. Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, he says, would be excellent. Or, if Republicans were looking to Florida, freshman Sen. Marco Rubio, “a good guy, would obviously be very helpful.”

Those two names, I say, are obvious. Graham smiles and floats another: Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor. “I know it would create problems on the social side,” he says, in reference to Giuliani’s pro-choice views. “But if you thought you had to do something on national security, you wanted a seasoned person who could be a good adviser to the president on how to make America safe, turn big systems around,” then Giuliani, he says, would be optimal.

“Rudy is respected by a lot of Americans,” Graham says. “I’m in the winning camp. We’re going to be a pro-life party regardless of who is vice president. I want to win.” Tapping Giuliani “may be a bridge too far” to some Republicans, “but when you ask me about who should be [the vice president], I’m looking for someone who could do the job and help the ticket win.”

The GOP nominee picks the VP candidate, not some goof ball senator.

Ughh...Sen. (light in the loafers) Graham trying to be relevant. He sees the Tea Party influence and wants a fellow moderate to be VP..... He wants to look like a kingmaker (ala’ Sen. DeMint) so he can have a job after 2014! He is in HEAP BIG DOO-DOO in SC(Indian lingo from RUSH) If I have to challenge him myself in the primary!(I’m confident I could get 20,000 Tea Party signatures)

>>>“I’m not going to let the party become the party of isolationism,” Graham says.

I guess this is their code word for being a light republican/open borders weak politician is aok for the nation. This guy is no maverick. That is crazy talk (for closed minded people from the inside circles maybe or for Lindsay’s own mind) Please someone run against him, you have a great chance to win. Please, it’s way overdue for him to be fired.

Graham thinks Giuliani would be a good VP but RINO Rick Perry thought Rudy would be a good POTUS.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Governor Rick Perry's choice for president of the United States!

VIDEO Perry compares pro-abortion, pro-gay, anti-Second Amendment cross-dressing liberal freak Rudy Giuliani to President Ronald Reagan

Oh yeah, let's get Rick (pro-open borders) Perry for Prez and Marco (light on enforcement of illegal immigrants) Rubio!

RINO dream!

Rudy is 67 now and he's no Ronald Reagan.

SC *must* ouster Lindsey Graham at its first opportunity.

What a despicable senator Graham is. But this goes to show you what kind of people live in SC to elect such a person!

The kind of people. What a dumbo statement. Like the kind of people in the US who elected Obama. The conservative GOP in SC has decimated the Dems to the point of irrelevance. Graham has been smart enough to get elected by picking certain issues to support, like the military. He is also a deficit hawk on many issues. He needs to go but dont incriminate a truly red state because of him.

Little Lindsay is probably doing this because he was impressed that Giuliani shacked up with two gay men after his wife kicked him out.

“Graham smiles and floats......”

Yeah, that’s what he does all the time.

Is Flimsey Tinkerbelle still an Air National Guard JAG attorney?

Bet he’s relieved over the repeal of DADT. And yes, I met him (ugh) at a Republican rally in 2002. He looked up at me with those baby blues (I’m not that tall) and cooed that he was ready to assume the mantle of Sen. Strom Thurmond (who is lashed down with hawsers so he can’t spin).

Please, oh geez I can’t go on this is my state South Carolina how did he get reelected and defeat a guy named Buddy Witherspoon in a redneck state like us.
