Obama-Graham partnership emerges in climate debate (McLame's lap dog says Obama "reasonable")
Reuters ^ | 2010-03-11 | Richard Cowan

WASHINGTON, March 10 (Reuters) - It's rare when a conservative Republican in Congress heaps praise on President Barack Obama, especially in regards to fighting global warming, but Senator Lindsey Graham did just that on Wednesday.

The South Carolina lawmaker has, despite opposition from many in his party, worked with Obama and Democrats on a comprehensive energy and environmental bill, winning their support of more government aid for nuclear power and expanded oil and gas drilling.

Nuclear power and domestic oil production are at the core of Republican platforms.

"The president has been great to work with on energy and climate," Graham, a two-term senator, told reporters.

"I want to say this about the administration. They've been very reasonable on offshore drilling and nuclear power and they've been very reasonable at looking at a different way to price carbon."

The article is right. It IS rare when a conservative Republican in Congress heaps praise on BHO. Lindsay Graham can praise BHO all he wants, ‘cause Lindsay ain’t no conservative.

I have been unable to understand why even McCain is so determined to cement the Social Democrat Party into position as the governing Party in a One Party State. With Amnesty that is what we get and I don’t see any sort of rational thinking that can seriously posit any other result. It will make for that One Party until the “Hispanics” hive off to form a Mexican National Party which will not be any sort of improvement.

Gee if the democrats were blackmailing Massa because of “tousled an aide’s hair” you have to wonder what the heck was on Grahm’s FBI files, so that he rolls on his back like a little puppy for Harry Reid and Obama. They must have video of a live young boy or a dead girl........... Goat.

Lindsey Graham isn't a conservative Republican. She is a liberal.

Any “concessions” Graham thinks he is gettting on drilling and nukes are not worth the paper they are written on. Too bad he wasn’t defeated in the primaries in 2008.

No doubt he is pushing to become the new pet poodle of the LSM as the “sensible Republican” on their Sunday talk shows, and the go-to guy whenever the want to shove a knife in the back of conservatism.

Cap and Trade, Amnesty, and a reported ‘deal’ to close Gitmo

Graham is a fool and “useful idiot”. Somebody needs to explain to him that AGW is a hoax, and he is going to go down in history as one of the biggest fools ever if he continues to buy into the AGW lie.

Let see, "Conservative" Mini MeCain supports:

1) Cap & Tax

2) Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants

3) Closing Gitmo

I think Meghan would call him a Progressive Republican like her.

I don't think so.

But hey, at least we can tear down McCain this year. That should put a rather large dent in Graham's treachery.

Sorry, I don’t know. With SC being a conservative state, I’d guess if such a law was possible we’d have it.

I bet Lindsey will have the same glowing appreciation of the Obama administration about amnesty too!

Lindsey, like his mentor McCain, must be getting elected by democrats in SC.
