Skip to comments.Lindsey Graham: I 'Embrace' Being a 'Chamber of Commerce Republican'
Posted on 01/24/2014 12:08:50 PM PST by cotton1706
As the battle between the grassroots and the establishment sides of the Republican Party rages on, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is taking a very public stance on the side of the establishment.
Im going to embrace being a Chamber of Commerce Republican, Graham said in an interview with The Greenville News in Greenville, SC this week.
The Chamber of Commerce represents the biggest group fighting on behalf of the GOP establishment in its ongoing battle with the Tea Party movement, becoming deeply involved in Republican primary elections and pushing comprehensive immigration reform on Capitol Hill.
Theres a fight in our party about the sort of isolationism on foreign policy, libertarianism on domestic policy, Graham said. Im a traditional conservative Chamber of Commerce Republican."
"I like the Chamber of Commerce. I like the idea that people compete against each other," he explained. "During the day, you come together for the common good. Youll have insurance companies that compete against each other, youll have lawyers and bankers who basically fight for market share at the end of the day. But through the Chamber they try to come together and build up the community."
"Thats the way I think," Graham claimed. "When it comes to problem solving, Washington is broken and I think the solution is not more people yelling but somebody willing to roll up their sleeves and willing to fix problems like you have to do at the Chamber level and you have to do in the private sector.

Linda is broken.
FU Chamber of Crony Capitalist Republicrat Elitists.
Perfect ad material
I guess she wants to be their Chamber maid.
When I ran for state rep in CT in ‘96, I rejected them then. The CBIA/CoC SUPPORTED Weicker’s state income tax.
They have only gotten worse since then.
FULG!! And the McDaddy you rode in on.
Graham should be asking "how many voters does the Chamber of Commerce have?"
Probably also embraces being a gun grabber Republican.
And a La Raza Republican and a Log Cabin Republican (oops, did I type that?).
You’re right the Chamber has become a den of cronies ..all of them are big companies in bed with government .there’s no competition there.
I thought he embraced McCain. This amounts to adultery.
you go with that girl!
Doubling down on stupidity.
No Chamber of Commerce Amnesty for illegals.
“La Raza Republican” - BINGO!!!
Ya gotta figure that he’s getting a huge majority of his campaign funds with CoC connected donors.
What else is he going to say?
At least now the primary voters are voting on honest information.
I hope this p*****r just sunk himself.
The last time the Federal fixed anything was Hitler’s clock.
Lindsey also embraces being Chuck Schumer’s towel boy.
The fact that this @$$¶0¦£ is not only getting more than 5% of the vote in the Republican primary, but will probably win shows how America is doomed.
If we can’t even count on Republicans in a red state like South Carolina to pay attention and do the right thing, we as a nation are just too stupid to live
Supports Amnesty, ObamaCare, Communist China, EU, UN....everything what the Chamber of Commerce supports
Personally, if I was embraced by Lindsey, I’d call the cops.
Heh. Log Cabin Chamber Republican.
I’m not sure I want to know what Lindsey ‘embraces’.
I guess she wants to be their Chamber maid.
I always thought Lindsey was a log cabin R?

So pretty much a checked pants wearing beer-o-crap.
Ugh. Graham was a cheesy small town ambulance chaser and now he’s a cheesy big city ambulance chaser
DC broken by anti-American politicians like LG will in no way ever get fixed by those same politicians. You're done you little lying POS RINO twerp.
I am glad to see LindaG publicly take the side of the gopE rather than engage in his every-6th-year pretense to be a conservative aligned with the Tea Party.
Bring it on. Go Lee Bright!
He is also an AARP Republican.
It was Stalin.
Little Lindsey Grahamnesty says “I’m bought and paid for, and I’M PROUD OF IT”.
Michelle Malkin’s article re Chamber of Commerce is timed perfectly. Just read it today
His opponent, not so much. Lee Bright’s senate campaign giving away AR-15. http://www.foxcarolina.com/story/24538341/state-sen-lee-brights-campaign-giving-away-ar-15
Crony is Linda.
Graham appeared on the radio station WORD in Greenville and reaffirmed his reputation as a scum lying RINO. He refused to answer questions and came off as an elitist jerk.
Linda is dog meat. His approval rating in SC is 41%, and that’s a death sentence for an incumbent.
"I'm a hideous Crony Capitalist/Fascist who is bought and paid for, and I am proud of it!"
SC conservatives, unite behind Lee Bright. He has a proven record of conservatism as a State Senator! Do not divide the vote! Bright consistently polls ahead of the other contenders. They need to drop out and support Bright with all they’ve got or Graham will win via a split vote. How many times are voters going to fall for this maneuver?
“If we cant even count on Republicans in a red state like South Carolina to pay attention and do the right thing, we as a nation are just too stupid to live”
Linda is running against four challengers. SC has a run-off primary system between the top two candidates after the primary. Linda barely has 42% percent approval in the state. He’ll be lucky to finish among the top two in the primary.
Yes Washington is broken and folks like Lindsey are why.
That was something I didn’t need to see. Bad Cripplecreek bad.
Yeah, we’re gonna jump on this one...
SC Conservatives: Please do your best to attend this event:
