Skip to comments.SC Senator Lindsey Graham Needs To Be Replaced In 2014 & Here’s Why
Posted on 08/02/2013 11:44:58 AM PDT by upchuck
When the Palmetto State elected Lindsey Graham, we got the moderate GOP senator we didnt want. He has been the poster boy, along with John McCain, for unprincipled leadership and represents everything wrong with the modern Republican Party. In the past few months alone, hes irritated people across the political spectrum with numerous actions from helping pen the recent amnesty bill to advocating boycotting the Olympics if NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden wasnt turned over by Russian authorities. When all is said and done, Graham needs to be unseated and replaced with someone like Senator Jim DeMint.
The one consistent aspect of Grahams voting record is his opposition to conservative issues. He can vote for whatever sounds good at the time and change the next time if public outcry is strong enough, but he doesnt come to the table with ideas on how to make things better.
DeMint clearly did and that helped him enjoy the kind of success he did as a Senator and now as head of the Heritage Foundation. He could stand for something and vote on his principles rather than side with what is popular that day.
Graham is very good communicating to low-information Republicans. He will say one thing to the Republicans at the conferences and the dinners playing to his conservative base but behind the scenes he plots with Democrats to pass liberal legislation.

The biggest reason to replace Graham: He cannot get his nose out of John McCain’s rectum.
I know finding John McCain’s rectum is hard he is rectum all over, but Graham knows exactly where it is/.
Anyone who needs the reasons explained to them why this schmuck needs to go, they just haven't been paying attention.
How does the primary system work in South Carolina? Is it enough to just get a plurality of primary votes or are there primary run-off elections?
I can cut NE state RINOs a little slack because of the stupid electorate which they have to cater to, but not Graham. Like his buddy McCain, he seems to take special delight in poking conservatives in the eye with a sharp stick.
South Carolinians ... please primary this mcqueeg mini-me.
Unfortunately it looks like a crowded primary and that will only play into Graham’s hands.
He NEEDED to be replaced in 2000, but what're ya' gonna' do?
The real unfortunate thing is he appears to fairly liked in SC....go figure!!!!
...he doesnt come to the table with ideas on how to make things better.
Typical Vichy Republican. I'll bet his bank balance is considerably better than it was when he arrived in Washington, D.C.
I may anyway just on principle.
Their one Grahamnesty is far worse for all of US than our rino and our demonrat put together.
I think you could do that in fewer letters than it takes to type the URL
Graham is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party. If he were half a man, he would come out of the gay closet, and tell the Democrats who control him to stuff it.
I wonder how many times Obama and Grahamnesty have shared a steam bath together? Bottoms up!
I live next door.
1.Assuming that we succeed in beating Graham in the primary, what are SC's rules on him registering to then run as an independent. Can he still do so after the primary? Could he try to pull a Murkowski?
2. Does anyone have a link that explains, hopefully in not too great detail..how SC's open primary system works..especially the rules and dates fro how and when a Democrat or and Independent gets to vote in the GOP primary.
And one more, if y'all would kindly indulge me:
What's Alvin Greene been up to lately?
That censure was in 2009. Here we are four years later doing it again. Maybe this time it will stick.
Voters who voted in a party's primary, can vote only in the runoff of the same party. Voters who did not vote in the primary, may vote in either party's runoff.
The primary is for Democratic and Republican candidates only. Candidates running unopposed for their Party's nomination will not appear on primary ballots.
Voters may not vote in a political partys runoff if they voted in another political partys primary. However, voters who did not vote in either politicial partys primary may vote in either politicial partys runoff.
A defeated primary candidate may not actively offer or campaign as a write-in candidate for the ensuing election. The use of posters or stickers on the ballot is not permitted. The voting machine provides for a voter to write-in a candidate. Write-in votes are not allowed in primary elections or the election of President or Vice-president.
Many thanks.....have a great weekend
Jim DeMint didn't retire. He took the CEO position at the Heritage Foundation. Doing a super job.
IMHO, DeMint left the Senate because he was tired of the Mickey Mouse shit. And I'm sure having to put up with Linda was not a pleasant chore.
I have already made a contribution to Nancy Mace. I hope others will consider doing the same. She will need nationwide support to win.
That all depends on whether SC has primary runoffs or not. If they do, then a crowded primary is good. If not, as is the case in KY, it will be virtually impossible to unseat the incumbent. You can bet that the GOPe will be sure to load the KY GOP primary with stalking horses for McConnell.
Some probably think so. Others would say a barn would be quite a bit nicer. Thanks for asking.
My last girlfriend told me I should take that kind of interest as a compliment, so thanks anyway, I guess.
But, otoh, assuming you're really just curious about whether or not your Grahamnesty is a greater danger to our Republic than my state's two imminent and honorables combined?
Add a Burr plus a Hagan together, then subtract the total from your Grahamnesty and your guy still sucks worse than my state's rino and demonrat put together.
It's close, though, which is why my vote still has some use around here. To be honest, I'm probably just hiding my own personal shame, which is even greater than your Grahamnesty.
I should move back to Arizona and make amends for starting my voting career with votes for the even bigger insult, the one and only Juan McLame, our greatest embarrassment.
(He was a war hero, okay? I was a kid, it was my first time, how was I to know?)
Somehow, one of us has had a real bad misunderstanding somewhere along the line. Wow. Unplugging the computer now.
Good, then. Glad it was just a misunderstanding! Happy Friday!
