Grahamnasty and McCain

Reading that, it suddenly clicked: they want amnesty as a way to replace all the citizens 0bama wants to kill.

Graham and McCain are classic neo-cons.

There has always been a strong authoritarian bent to the neo-conservative wing of the GOP. For a long time it was confined to their foreign policy initiatives, but as their influence in the party has increased, the entire party hierarchy has become more and more controlling.

That’s one of the main reasons for their resentment of the conservative wing, IMO.

If you have a Twitter account, get on it. Graham & McCain are traitors to the American people, call it like it is.

Say what you will about the two of them, once they are bought, they STAY bought.

You don’t often see that kind of dedication in politics today.

Interesting. I saw SC’s other Senator, Tim Scott, speaking at the filibuster late last night/early this morning. Seems to be a generational divide with the newer Republican Senators backing Paul vs the oldies opposing him.

Almost all politicians seem to be stuck in their development at the Junior High School level.

An adult like Rand Paul comes along and all the other ones can think to do is throw spit wads.

Graham uses this as an excuse to vote for Brennan. So, I guess if Paul filibustered a member of Al Queda Graham would vote for him.

Bottom line is they agree with the liberals that Tea Partiers are terrorists. And both want to see them taken out. I would never say publicly that I want something bad to happen to people like this but, so far, I can still think it.

Graham and McCain represent EVERYTHING that’s WRONG about the Republican Party.

Amen. I just had to repeat that sentence, it sums the problems with the GOP quite well. Short and to the point.

I think these two are watching their time as the "head" of the Republicans in the Senate going away, and they are desperately trying to maintain their "relevance".

I know Paul is getting all the press today; but, I caught some of Ted Cruz's questioning of Holder and I almost felt sorry for Holder (almost). I came away with the firm belief that Holder is a dummy and Cruz had him for lunch.

Remember in McCain’s nomination speech he came out and started talking about his POW experience and said “They broke me.” He was afraid the democrats were going to start talking.

He also slammed the swift boat veterans who were against Kerry.

I remember the hearings. He slammed Perot. But Perot was right.

I think I would've been disappointed if Juan McLame or Light in the Loafers Lindsay approved, so this is great. Maybe they're mad because Rand Paul and Ted Cruz might upset the good ole boy applecart, or maybe they're just cheap hookers bought off by 0bama's dinner last night.

Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are the first ones in DC in a long, long time that have stood up for ME!

The Tea Party is moving away from the republican party and they will NEVER win another election without us.

This is exactly why the (R)s are gone. Besides the elites that determine who will be the next the (D)s control. As I have predicted for many months, The Hildabeast is a shoe-in.
