Skip to comments.SC Democrats: Out Of The Closet For Lindsey Graham
Posted on 11/22/2013 5:28:23 AM PST by cotton1706
Its no secret that U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham is not a Republican. Seriously he supports tax hikes, unnecessary military entanglements and invasions of our personal liberty. Also he was the only GOP member of the entire U.S. Congress to back Barack Obamas infamous cap and trade energy tax.
In fact theres an argument to be made Lindsey Graham is more liberal than a lot of conservative Democrats in Washington, D.C.
Thats why this weeks decision by South Carolinas junior U.S. Sen. Tim Scott to take a pass on endorsing Graham was no surprise.
What was surprising, though?
The full-throated endorsement of Graham by wait for it the South Carolina Democratic Party, which has been not-so-secretly backing his reelection bid for some time.
Well guess what, people the donkeys are officially out of the closet.
In a press release sent to media following Scotts non-endorsement, SCDP spokeswoman Kristin Sosanie referred to Scott as having taken sides against common sense and pragmatism by refusing to endorse Graham.
The release also specifically referred to Graham as one of the few federal elected officials in South Carolina who actually works to try to get things done to help our states families and businesses instead of forcing a government shutdown.
Momentarily putting aside the fact that government getting things done is a major part of the problem, this sort of language is practically unheard of in the Palmetto State where primary and general election battles are typically bloodsport.
praise like this emanating from a rival party is typically only reserved for politicians at their funerals. Its certainly not the sort of thing you expect to hear seven months away from an election.

Even more reason to bury him niw. The voters need to make sure they are not fooled into splitting their vote like they did in Virginia. The Libertarian vote is what cost them the election. I’m willing to bet they’re going to try it again. The Libertarians are going to have to realize this and side with the Republican candidate or the Democrats are going to keep stealing the elections every time using this tactic.
Earlier this year Bob remarks “...and no one is as conservative as Sen Lindsey Graham is...” to help him out.
“Does SC have an open primary where democrats can cross over and vote for Graham?”
From what I understand, it does. But there’s some kind of rumble going on between two democrats in SC, so they may also have a primary, which wouldn’t be good for Graham.
But what does it say about a supposed conservative republican, that he needs democrats to help him win an election in South Carolina. I think we all know the answer. Graham is a scumbag and a democrat. John McCain has trained him well.
great campaign slogan material
Linsey Graham: endorsed by the democrats for helping the obama government “get things done”
South Carolinians, if you like the things the obama government is “getting done”, at home and abroad, then Linsey is your “man”
That’s how McCain wins also, plus the Dems run a nobody candidate who barely campaigns.
