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

Posted on 09/17/2011 3:04:01 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

(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.”

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

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

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

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.

He learned how to fake conservative values from the feet of the master. Here's the master spotting a Tea Party member (aka a "Hobbit") in the audience.

I don’t think the SC people are essentially vicious at all but just poorly informed. It’s like Walter F. Mondale once said of Bob Dole in their 1976 debate: “I don’t think he is a mean and nasty man; I think he just performed poorly that night.” That’s when Dole accused the Democrats of starting World War II. So it is with SC; they performed poorly in 2002 and 2008.

Sadly, Mr. Mondale today has met the fate that Mr. Reagan did.

Is there any name floating out there as a primary candidate for the SC seat in 2014? I haven’t heard of anyone. SC people can be so stubborn that they will stick with an incumbent a half century just to spite the rest of the country, and maybe hope for a few “public works” in the meantime.

Nobody has declared for sure yet that I can tell.......But I get the feeling that Former Gov. Mark Sanford might want to re-enter politics due to statements he has made. Which would be a disaster! We need a real Tea Party canidate to run in SC not a Establishment Republican or RINO.....Which is why I might REALLY have to throw my name in....(We shall see) Might have to do it just to make a point!!!!

Lindsey Graham's got another bright idea ........ Giuliani for VP b/c "for national security, you want a good adviser to the president on how to make America safe.”

Oh sure, Rooty Tooty is real good at that.

S-o-o-o good, that Rooty actually moved the Mayor's Office of Emergency Management to the WTC prior to 911---making it a prime target for terrorists.

========================================

If he'd been a little smarter, Rudy probably could have prevented 9/11...

Prior to 9/11, previous terror suicide attacks against the US included: the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The 2000 bombing of the USS Cole and the 1998 bombing of the U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam in Tanzania.

Some of the thoughts that continually haunt me:

<><> Why Rudy placed a prime target---the Mayor's Office of Emergency Mgmt-----smack dab in the WTC?

<><> Why people in the second WTC tower, minutes before the second plane hit, were told their building was safe and secure, to go back inside

<><> Why 343 firefighters had to die standing in the WTC lobby ostensibly sent to "fight a fire" in a bldg struck by an airliner?

<><> Why no one listened when someone spoke up that terrorists in flight school said they wanted to learn how to takeoff---not how to land an aircraft?

======================================

What happened to Giuliani's tax-exempt "charity" the "Twin Towers Fund". As we all recall, very publicly, for maximum PR impact, Rooty ripped up a huge Saudi check made on behalf of victims of 9/11. Later, Giuliani accepted huge Saudi checks made out to his consulting business, "Giuliani Partners.” The original Saudi check was made out to the "Twin Towers Fund"

Rudy appointed to the "Twin Towers Fund" Board of Directors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Judith Nathan who was then the married Rooty's mistress. Giuliani referred to Miss Nathan as a philanthropist. Mr Schwarzenegger used the tax-exempt "Twin Towers Fund" to help him launch his profit-making movie, "Collateral Damage," with Rudy and his entourage joining in on the gala premiere event.

The president of the International Association of Fire Fighters, said Giuliani gave every indication of using the Twin Towers Fund to maintain a staff of loyal supporters and to advance his political aspirations.

========================================

Giuliani then agreed to distribute the $100 million remaining in the city's "Twin Towers Fund" to the families of 430 uniformed and civilian rescuers killed on Sept. 11.

Giuliani's pledge came after weeks of criticism about his plans for the Twin Towers money, including threats of a lawsuit from police widows. The decision by the former mayor, who formed the Twin Towers Fund within days of the attack.

The move was a substantial victory for the families of the rescuers, many of whom have criticized Giuliani's efforts to privatize the fund, hire a staff of 12 to oversee its work and perhaps take months or even years to disburse its millions.

It remained uncertain if New York State's AG and the courts would approve the transfer of the $100 million Twin Towers Fund to the private charity of the same name that is controlled by Mr. Giuliani.

While seeking control of the $100 million, Mr. Giuliani asserted that he had a ''sacred obligation'' to the families of the dead rescuers, and he suggested that fiscal prudence demanded a measured approach to distributing the money, taking perhaps as long as three years.

The police widows agreed to abandon their threats of a court fight to oppose the formal transfer of the $100 million to Giuliani.....and also agreed not to oppose Giuliani's continued control of roughly $15 million he has raised since leaving office in his new "private charity."

Lindsey 'Fruit Loops' Graham needs to go back into the closet and STFU.

For one Rooty's ego wouldn't let him be 2nd fiddle.
Second, his wife's ego wouldn't let him be 2nd fiddle.

(that broad is wackier than the First Wookie)
