Sen. Graham to Republicans: 'Face Reality That ObamaCare Cannot Be Stopped'
FOX News ^ | Oct 13, 2013 | FOX News Insider

Posted on 10/13/2013 4:32:59 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has called President Obama a “pathetic leader” for his lack of involvement in negotiations to end the government shutdown. He slammed the president’s unwillingness to compromise with Republicans as “immature.”

Today on America’s News HQ, Graham told anchor Doug McKelway, “For [Republicans] to suggest to the American people that we could defund ObamaCare or delay it for a year by shutting down the government, I think was unrealistic.”

With the debt limit just four days away, Sen. Graham said, “I’m not going to vote for any deal coming out of the Senate that doesn’t have a reasonable chance of getting a majority of House Republicans understanding that defunding and delaying ObamaCare is a bridge too far.”

Not so fast. There are steps that can be taken, it just takes balls which is a foreign concept to Graham.

Lindsey Graham said Sunday he would not vote for a deal to reopen the government and raise the debt limit if it cannot attract support in the Republican-led House, arguing there is little point in claiming victory if a deal does not pass muster in the other chamber of Congress.

Based on everything in this thread and what we’ve come to expect from the GOP, I won’t be surprised if we start hearing rumors about Graham running in 2016.

What the hell kind of “political leverage” is he looking for? James Madison, et al, gave the House the power of the purse and the power to DENY funding to a runaway government. It’s a tool designed for exactly this political situation. It’s (almost) fool proof. Just say no and there’s not a damn thing the president or senate can do about it.

...And then comes the fools.

Freep You Lindsay Graham

Tennessee has a couple of RINOs who gotta go. Sadly, Corker is in for five more, but we have Lamar! in our political cross hairs.

BeatLamar! Ground game
