Skip to comments.Lindsey Graham: Paul Ryan Is Presidential Material(backstabbers alert)
Posted on 12/16/2013 12:27:05 PM PST by amnestynone
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said he thinks that House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is presidential material because of his work on the spending deal he cut with Senate Budget Committee chairwoman Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA). From my point of view, he's showing leadership," Graham said, according to the Huffington Post. I mean, if you want to become president, maybe instead of trying to please every faction of your party, maybe you should show the country as a whole I can actually work with the other side on something important. Huffington Post noted that Graham added with a laugh that he thinks it's a unique way to become president, but I think it might actually work. Ryan was the vice presidential nominee in last years failed bid by Mitt Romney to unseat incumbent President Barack Obama. He, like Graham, supports granting amnesty to Americas at least 11 million illegal aliens--a position that has the ability to undercut any GOP politicians support from the base, as polls show it did to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). Ryan is expected to attempt to champion an amnesty plan through the House in early 2014.

He is not presidential material. He has already alienated too many people with his talk about cutting entitlements.
The only thing Ryan is good for is derailing GOP chances.
Is he going to run as a Democrat?
Can you say; Kiss Of Death?
Graham and now Ryan aptly illustrate the whole flawed underpants gnome strategy of the GOPe, that somehow if we just be bipartisan and come to some deal just to have a deal, then well America will love us and vote for us because it shows we’re real nice guys.
Even of course if the deal is crap and does nothing to solve real problems, like this budget. Trying to win with sleight of hand and Madison Ave PR garbage of zero substance doesn’t impress the American voter and will not get their vote if you are a Republican.
This is their achilles heel and a great opportunity for any conservative opposition candidate in the primary to make hay.
This from the guy who walked up a Glacier tourist path in Seward Alaska with Hillary Clinton and John McCain and was convinced to support Global Warming before heading off for a grilled Salmon dinner at our expense.
Shouldn’t this little a$$ wipe be licking McCain’s underwear in the Ukraine?
Graham really thinks that Ryan would be able to defeat Hillary Clinton in the Democrat primaries?
(for Cuba, I mean)
pssst. Linsie is afraid of Cruz.
My first thought.
Number of times in U.S. history a losing VP nominee was later elected President: one.
Yep. He wasn’t even impressive VP material.
But anyone—and I mean anyone—whom Graham endorses is not fit for public office.
LOL! Yep, he will be every bit as effective at that as he was in carrying Wisconsin for the RINO ticket. Hell, BO won his congressional district in 2012 and 2008.
“Shouldnt this little a$$ wipe be licking McCains underwear in the Ukraine?”
Do you mean Aunt Lindsey licking mcCain? That would make sense. And I know right where he would like to lick him. But I suspect Aunt Lindsey would rather be licking cute Paul.
Grahamnesty’s at it again.
Oh barf!!! The guy can’t even put together a budget that balances in less than 10 years predicated on a 5% unemployment rate.
- - - Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) signaled that Republicans would not raise the debt ceiling next year without some sort of concessions from Democrats - - -
The key cave-in word in the above quote is the word without.
If without is removed, and the qualifying following dependent phrase, the statement becomes: - - - Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) signaled that Republicans would not raise the debt ceiling next year.
Thus, Ryan has signaled that he is working a con on his loyal, and very gullible voters.
If the word signaled is replaced by stated, then we have a statement worthy of a true Federal Republican Politician: - - - Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) stated that Republicans would not raise the debt ceiling next year.
This is a good object lesson for us Conservatives to consider at how eager the current RINO Establishment leadership is to surrender, cave-in or otherwise grovel at the feet of their betters (the Marxist Democrats).
Always willing to avoid a knock-down, drag out battle such as the 2012 Reid-Obama Controlled Partial Government shutdown, the Federal Congressional RINO Establishment continues to cave in to the loudest voices in Marxist Obama Administration, the Marxist Reids Senate, and the Leftstream Media.
Ryans double con is working as long as we Conservatives allow his Con to go un-noticed.
I’m considering the source of this pronouncement.
Based on the example of the last five years, who the hell isn't?
Poor Paul. He’s boned.
I wouldn’t even make Paul Ryan president of a Homeowners Association.
Anybody that works with the Commie Pat Murray is not presidential material in my book.
No. Never under any circumstance. Hell no.
No he is not.
Reason number 52 why we need a new second party.
So how much did the RATs’ immaculate deception work across the isle with the either side and show the country “leadership” as a senator?
do you think the democrats will nominate Ryan?
Wait until Patty Murray hears about this! Paul Ryan: a switch-hitter. Who knew?
To make the country happy as a Republican you have to show how you can give in to democrats? did I hear him correctly? Is he being primaried? (Please God I hope so)
Linda Grahamnesty is a focking idiot.
How romantic. Linda and his new-found beau.
The system corrupts them faster than we can vote them out.
Paul Ryan had little chance before the budget deal.
Christie has some small chance. As bad as Christie is, he at least said he has some concern about being a magnet for illegal freebies and said he wants any dream act to be identical for out of state American.
I oppose any dream act but it is funny seein Christie dodge questions and point out the obvious.
Jeb Bush is too vanilla as Pat Buchanan says.
I think Ryan will survive regardless. I’d like to see Lynn Jenkins and some of the others in leadership get primaried.
Constituents Unload on Immigration at Lynn Jenkins Town Hall
Id be happy if Denham or Valadao lost and blamed it on the evil white Republican base for staying at home.
Be good if Kinzinger or Grimm or some other young ignorant RINO loses somehow.
Id like to see Trump or similar go into a Senate race and either sabotage or win the race with like 40% running in opposition to amnesty.
Maybe New Hampshire or somewhere that is not a slam dunk for the GOP.
Paul Ryan just raised taxes.....
Paul Ryan is a tax raising RINO.
Isn’t it past
Time conservatives stop letting the GOP beat on them
I heard talk show host Bill Cunningham last night endorse Ryan’s budget. Turned off the radio.
“Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)”
Chief spokeswoman for the GOPe strategy of “managed decline”.
Gowdy, Duncan, Mulvaney and Sanford voted no.
linda is an ass.
linda is skered of Cruz.
Uber RINO Lindsey Ping
"Republican by day, Democrat by night."
Want on or off this ping list?
Just FReepmail me
“Reason number 52 why we need a new second party.”
Which is why we MUST continue with the Tea Party takeover of the Republican party. The GOPe currently running the party see the writing on the wall and are fighting back against the true conservatives such as Ted Cruz. Don’t get discouraged; we’re on our way to achieving that objective if we do not falter.
Is this the same Paul Ryan who couldn’t even hold his own in the debate with crazy Joe Biden??? Ryan is a loser, the son of Boehner.
Not waiting any more
I’ll give money to support an actual party. Christie will be the GOP candidate
Not waiting any more
Ill give money to support an actual party. Christie will be the GOP candidate
Well, you do your thing and I’ll do mine. For the current (2014) cycle, I’m supporting the Senates Conservative Fund and individual CONSERVATIVE candidates running in the primaries and will support CONSERVATIVE candidates in the general. 2014 can be a VERY good year for conservative Republicans if we keep up our efforts. I, of course, am not counting on you to be among those fighting this fight.
And, by the way, Christie will not be the 2016 candidate if I can help it.
