US Sen. Lindsey Graham censured by SC county GOP

(AP) – 1 hour ago

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Republican leaders in a South Carolina county have censured their own U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham for working with Democrats on a climate bill and other legislation.

The Republican has often worked with Democrats in Congress, but Charleston County Chairwoman Lin Bennett says his work on climate legislation is the last straw.

The party resolution passed Monday says Graham has weakened the Republican brand. Bennett expects a similar resolution to be introduced at the state GOP convention next year.

Graham spokesman Kevin Bishop says Graham is looking for a way forward on energy legislation.

    I use to like Lindsey until finding out he has no moral character; just another member of the private club in Washington. How can that be? Didn’t we arrange his membership? I thought sponsors were members, too. Am I confused?

    The Earth is cooling, but let’s not let scientific facts get in the way. Man and CO2 have nothing to do with the climate; clean air and water yes, climate, no.

    This guy’s been on the wrong side of the river without a raft for years.

    Wow… what happened to the Lindsey who used to vehemently argue against, not only Senate liberals, but who used to become nearly ballistic with rage over the actions of past (thank God) house members such as Gephardt, Foley, Mitchell, Rostenkowski and the rest of that era’s petty, out-of-the-park partisan, sanctimonious, narcissistic and Constitutionally tyrannical “house boys”? Even so, those clowns were tame compared to the clowns we now must contend with on a daily basis. Only, today’s clowns are not so funny!

    Lindsey Graham… you should be ashamed of yourself, Senator. You know better! I’m more disappointed in you, policy wise, than I am in the war hero John McCain.

    Don’t get me wrong… I’ll take McCain, Graham, and any other policy-limp “republicans” over even one democrat — liberal, or so-called moderate “blue dog.” (“Red state” democrat is a proper term as far as I’m concerned… the term “red” is, after all, more fitting for democrats than Republicans… and that includes the supposed “blue dog” variety of sociali… communi… uh, excuse me… democrat. By the way, how did the media get away with naming traditionally conservative states “Red” states, and leftist, state worshipping gulags as “Blue” states? I know the drive-by media is clueless… but I have to believe they pulled a fast one on that issue.)

    Regardless, I think it’s either time for a complete and total return to Constitutional and conservative purity for the Republicans, or time to form an actual Conservative Party in America. Let Lindsay and [as much as I hate to say it] McCain, and Snow, Collins and the likes of those weak democrat-appeasing, leftist-coddling, Washington meddlers join the dems in further screwing this country into the socialist/communist catastrophe we’re headed toward now.

    Lindsay wants a “Bigger Tent” for the republican party, huh? Well, someone please take him to a local Army & Navy surplus store and help him purchase a tent big enough to put himself and other like-minded constitutionally-weak RINOs in. I’m sure the dems would love to allow their middle-of-the-road comrades some leftist real estate in which to camp out on.

    Hell, all the “campfire” needs is a tent to go with it. Why not… it’s already been burning for years!

    Having served nthe Board of Directors of a National “Environmental” organization during the 1980’s when the global warming threat was dreamed up as the cause under which they could use to “Unite all dissident groups and empower them to overthrow the government” I can tell you from first hand knowledge that the global warming science was dreamed up by the same people who gave us the Alar in the Apples scare a few years earlier. Most of those pseudo scientific reports about manmade global warming were written by people with Doctorates in subjects other than science. The one thing these pseudo scientists have failed to take into consideration is that for every action there is a reaction. Green house gasses are called green house gasses because they make plants flourish and grow. By limiting the amount of these gasses, are our pseudo scientists and theirfullible political lackies endangering the earths ability to produce more food to feed our growing world population? Plants taken in carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. Is man, in his infinite and exagerated belief in his all knowing wisdom, in danger of upsetting the delicate balance of nature? Some real scientist should do a study on that.

    Marilyn, you make a good point and perhaps the once noble Linsey has invested in the program as has Al Gore.
