Graham sometimes talks a good story but he fails to walk the walk.

I always suspected that about him. What did he choose for the centerpiece?

Graham was probably hoping to get Larry Sinclairs’ phone number from Obama...

I heard Graham say that Rand Paul was on the wrong side of the drone issue.

This is the question that every person nominated to a cabinet position, as well as every member of Congress should be required to respond to in writing, and publish for all to see:

List 10 things the current regime could NEVER do, the legal rationalizations that would be used to attempt them, and the specific names of the people with the ability and willingness to stop them if they tried those things TODAY.

“I heard Graham say that Rand Paul was on the wrong side of the drone issue.”

Graham was all hot and bothered on torture. He held up Bush nominees just to get some memo that Kennedy wanted.

But of course, just killing somebody is just fine. Graham: pretend drowning, unconsionable! Drone strike resulting in death, well that’s ok!

Graham and McCain are basically the administration’s boys in the senate. They are “extra democrats”

What a monumental waste of time. Obama is the head Democrat leading the mantra “All spending good, all cuts bad....All spending good, all cuts bad.” Its a safe bet Obama didn’t order pork. The pigs back on the Democrat farm would really hate that.

You don't walk when you're wearing a pair of signature Nina Burleighs like Graham does.

Did they at least support Rand Paul yesterday? Or are we seeing the Republican party split in two?... which is what the President wants.

The only reassuring thing is that Obama went stupid with his request: “Hey guys, could you cancel the sequester (that you won) in exchange for some massive tax increases?”

Even the biggest RINO would respond, “ARE YOU F#$%ING KIDDING ME?”

"Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire." -- Robert A. Heinlein

The controllers had dinner together last night - the others were filibustering. "Republican" has never really been synonymous with "liberty", but in the past the GOP at least had somewhat greater respect for traditions and the Constitution than the Democrats did. That's gone now, and the old labels no longer work as shortcuts for critical thinkers.

This is the reason we have a divide in the party. We have these cheerleading fools that want to be leaders that can’t say no to the clown in chief. They need to be replaced with some real conservatives.

Maybe not the dinner, but the comments during that dinner speak for themselves

__________
Lindsey Graham slammed Rand Paul last night for holding a filibuster against Barack Obama’s domestic drone policy.

Lindsey made the remarks after dinner with Barack Obama.

“This idea that we’re going to use a drone to attack a citizen in a cafe in America is ridiculous.”

"...Graham say that Rand Paul was on the wrong side of the drone issue.”

Isn't the other way around? Graham is also on the wrong side of our Constitution...he isn't doing as he swore to do...he is playing politics as is his want. Mr. Graham has not grown one iota in office...he is becoming a champion at playing the D.C. game.

This is an excellent way, having this meeting, of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. First off, Obozo would not want any meeting UNLESS he were losing on the issue. He has taken a ton of hits in the press and other media on his stance so far. So, he pivots and holds a hand out to the GOP in the Senate? WHY, his party controls the senate last time I looked. NO, his holding his hand out is with a daggar aimed at the house GOP. He is trying to garner public support against the house GOP, his true enemy right now by saying he met with the Senate GOP. The guy is a three card monte dealer at heart and we need keep our eye on the ace here. BTW, Bonehead yesterday said he wanted all future budget deals to be in the public eye. He put more, not less, pressure on the liar in chief who cannot do anything out of the shadows so he can lie with impunity.

Send Lindsay on a cruise with Bill O’Reilly, another phoney “moderate” who last night criticized the republican who said Obama should give up golf rather than cancel WH tours.

I used to defend the middle of the road “conservatives” but have to admit they are so clueless they are pissing me off.

Do we ever see Chuck Schumer falling all over himself to defend any republican?

....another Obama trick to split gullible Republicans. A key strategy so Ohaha can get what really wants...total control of Congress....

THE OBAMA FLOPOLA Obama winged around the country like Chicken Little----cackling about the "sky falling" if he did not get another trillion dollars to throw away on 29 new federal federal giveaways to buy votes. (Obama's "turkey trot" was intended to increase Dem's midterm chances).

That flopped bigtime.

COMMENTATOR CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER OBSERVES---"Obama's alarming move---deliberately making the most painful and socially disruptive cuts possible (putting 2000 imprisoned illegal immigrants on the streets--- hardened criminals plotting crimes against law-abiding Americans). When the Nation was at the fiscal cliff, Obama cunningly split Republicans and got a slew of new taxes.

The sequester scam is intended to break the Repubs on spending..... to make cuts look as painful as possible, and let Republicans come crawling for a “balanced” deal----more back-breaking tax-hikes on the working class). In the past two years, House Republicans stopped cold Obama’s left-liberal agenda. If Obama can break them now, the road is open to resume legislating Obama's expansive, entitlement-state liberalism proclaimed in his 2012 inaugural address.

But Obama cannot win if 'nothing bad really happens' with sequestration. Indeed, he’d look both foolish and cynical for having cried wolf." ####

RE :”Yep! And don’t forget, according to Lindsey just a few years ago, we are ALL bigots!”

I still remember that weazel on the Sunday shows saying ‘Maybe we need to change the US constitution to end birth-right citizenship’ with the sole purpose of bring lots of sh...t down on those in congress who oppose amnesty.
(The US already does not give birthright to children of diplomats born in this country with no change in constitution so he was just trying to cause trouble.)

Notice he dropped that whole line of 'argument' only after a few days after getting it on the news and all the TV talk/news shows as questions:
“The GOP wants to change the constitution to....” failing to even mention Grahamnestys name.

That single cynical play of his showed me what a sleazeball he is. I dispise Grahamnesty, truly dispise.

Yes, it was curious. Last night Toomy and Johnson spoke in support. I've been watching Johnson (WI) ever since his vote on F-16s going to Egypt.

After dining Johnson said he didn't come to Washington to be Senator but to help fix the budget. He said the Senate is dysfunctional.

The beltway GOP are letting No Budget Barack off the hook. No fight in these folks at all. I knew the fix was in again when they started declaring victory a few days ago. They had done nothing except cut the military and wanted to have a party about a great “victory”. Unbelievable.

all this talk of reaching out, ARF, what a crock, this was about getting some republicans to dunner to get them away from what Paul was doing, no coindence that the dinner was exactly the same time as Paul spoke.

This morning I saw Corker say it was a good dinner, obama is reaching out and he is open to compromise and it was good to see MCcain laughing next to bozo

Frigging sell outs again and bozo is laughing at how stupid some on our side are.

These sell outs can;t grasp the simple fact that bozo used fraud to get where he is, he is a liar, he is a hard core socialist and near a commie, they can;t grasp that htey keep being laughed at and that the left uses them all the time to pass their own agenda.

How I wish voters would wake the hell up on both sides, what is it with states which keep electing the likes of Graham, McCain etc
