Why Lindsey Graham Is Wrong on Jenner

As a presidential candidate, and a politician in general, Lindsey Graham is wrong to be so anemic on the culture war. I appreciate Lindsey Graham saying, “I’m a pro-life, traditional marriage kind of guy.” That’s better than pushing the opposite. But Graham should not have joined in Jenner’s lies, beginning by referring to him by the feminine pronoun. I am referring to this story in The Hill, “Graham: Caitlyn Jenner ‘welcome’ in the Republican Party.” In an interview on CNN’s Read more […]

Ted Cruz Explains Second Amendment: Leftists Freak

Daily Kos readers need a safe space because Ted Cruz campaigning on the Constitution is a triggering event for most of them. Here’s the headline: “Presidential candidate Ted Cruz says Americans need guns in case they need to shoot the government.” Sen. Ted Cruz goes full LaPierre: “The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution isn’t for just protecting hunting rights, and it’s not only to safeguard your right to target practice. It is a Constitutional right to protect your children, your family, Read more […]

Lindsey Graham Promises Military Coup to Boost Defense Spending

Yes, using the armed forces to force Congress to increase defense spending is a military coup. Mediaite tells us that Lindsey Graham says he was joking: “Lindsey Graham Jokes: I’d Use the Military to Force Congress to Reverse Defense Cuts.” During his remarks before the Concord City Republican Committee last week, Sen. Lindsey Graham(R-SC) suggested that robust military spending is absolutely necessary to defeat ISIS forces abroad, and that, as president, he would use the military Read more […]

Dear Senator: Second Amendment Is Real Homeland Security!

Lindsey Graham is afraid to confront Obama fully because we can’t live without Homeland Security. Lots of fodder for discussion in this article at National Review, “What Not Even the King of England Could Do,” like: Not even the King of England at the time of the American Revolution had the authority to suspend laws unilaterally, the Law Library expert wrote in a memorandum to the Senate committee tasked with responding to President Obama’s recent executive orders on the enforcement Read more […]

GOP Intelligence Captured by the State Department?

Lindsey Graham’s reaction to the Benghazi report raises the question of whether GOP intelligence has been captured by the State Department. By “GOP intelligence,” I mean Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee. As CNN reports, “Sen. Lindsey Graham: GOP-led Benghazi report is ‘full of crap’” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, has some harsh words for the recently released Benghazi report, led by his own party. “I think the report is full of crap,” Graham told Gloria Read more […]

Culture War Still Worth Waging: Fetal Pain Provides A New Battlefront

Anyone who knows me knows Lindsey Graham is not my favorite Senator. But I am going to thank him anyway for backing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in the Senate. The House of Representatives has already passed the law. Appearing on “Fox News Sunday” last weekend, Mr. Graham noted that protecting pain-capable unborn children from the horror of abortion “is a debate worthy of a great democracy.” There is substantial medical evidence that unborn children are capable of experiencing Read more […]

Stop the Insanity and Lindsey Graham is Insane

Lindsey Graham (R-SC) needs to join the Democrat Party, resign, decide not to run in 2014, or the voters of South Carolina need to vote him out of office . . . please. Graham wants to move on from ObamaCare. Here’s the problem: If ObamaCare is financed, we’ll never be rid of it. “On ABC News’ This Week, Graham said Paul Ryan should team up with John Boehner to pass some kind of deal ‘that doesn’t delay or defund [Obamacare] but would be good government.’ “‘That’s the best Read more […]

GOP IS Scary, Narrow Minded, Out of Touch, and Stupid

After the 2012 presidential election, a number of focus groups were surveyed by the GOP Establishment. Some of the participants remarked that the GOP is “‘scary,’ ‘narrow minded,’ and ‘out of touch,’” and that it was “made up of ‘stuffy old men.’” It’s not surprising that the GOP Establishment would have to ask people their opinion of what they thought of the party. Instead of knowing what the GOP should be, the Republican numbskulls think it’s necessary to take a survey. Everybody Read more […]

Old Guard GOP Does Not Stand With Rand

“Where were all these people during the Bush administration? I never remember anybody accusing President Bush of, ‘We’re going to kill someone in a cafe.'” So said President Barack Obama, who was none too happy with Senator Rand Paul’s almost 13-hour talking filibuster on Wednesday. Obama said that Paul’s anti-drone filibuster was in the “realm of the ridiculous,” adding, “If Mr. Paul wants to be taken seriously he needs to do more than pull political stunts that fire up impressionable libertarian Read more […]

Rice Meets With Top GOP Senators Who Are More Concerned Now Than Before Meeting

From the first mention of UN Ambassador Susan Rice as a possible successor to Hillary Clinton as President Obama’s next Secretary of State, a number of Republican senators have openly opposed her nomination. Republican Senators John McCain (AZ), Lindsey Graham (SC) and Kelly Ayotte (NH) had voiced concerns about Rice’s qualifications after her statements on Benghazi.  In an effort to resolve their concerns, the three senators met privately with Susan Rice and acting CIA Director Michael Morell Read more […]

Obama and GOP at War Already

Forget about boxing, wrestling or any other kind of fight and just turn your attention to Capitol Hill.  To coin an old term, the fur is starting to fly in Washington between Republicans and President Obama. Evidently, there have been rumors that Obama may be considering nominating U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice for the Secretary of State position currently held by Hillary Clinton.  Several prominent Republican Senators have reacted to those rumors and announced that they would block such a nomination Read more […]
