Charleston South Carolina Republican Party Leaders Censure Senator Graham

by the Left Coast Rebel

Can you file this one immediately in the ‘why didn’t this happen sooner’ and ‘it’s about time’ file’? A RINO, a fool and a clown. From the SC Post and Courier:

The Charleston County Republican Party’s executive committee took the unusual step Monday night of censuring U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham for stepping across the GOP party line.

County Chairwoman Lin Bennett said the unanimous vote “is an effort to get his attention. They (party leaders) are just fed up, and they want him to know they’re fed up.”

The resolution mentions Graham’s cooperation with U.S. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., on a bipartisan energy bill, and his support for the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program and the time he called some opponents of immigration reform “bigots.”

“U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham — in the name of bipartisanship — continues to weaken the Republican brand and tarnish the ideals of freedom, rule of law, and fiscal conservatism,” the resolution reads.

Hopefully this represents a turning point in the vetting process within the GOP for conservatives to take hold of the party. More to come? I hope Grahamnesty finds the exit door. You?

As a graduate of The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina and a former resident of Charleston County, South Carolina, I applaud the GOP's stance on Senator Graham. His rationales are too often nonsensical, contrived and seemingly attention seeking. He too often does harm to those who elected him to represent their interests.

And I hope it hits him in the ass on the way out.

@ CB – Hey, how are yah? Long time no see. I agree and disagree with what you are saying here. Agree that you are right disagree in that you are too nice, lol. Summary – he needs to be vetted out in the primary.

@ RG – Me too.

As much as I don't like many of his views, I don't agree with this. This is just further's the media reporting that the party is factured. What they should do is no longer give money to his re-election campaign. Fiscal responsibility needs to be the backbone of the platform. Most republicans did not follow this during Bush's tenure. Including Bush himself. So pointing him out just seems silly to me.

And your position is what's wrong with the party, and humans in general. Denial of a problem just perpetuates the problem. The guy has been out of line and should be dressed down. His actions have consequences and withholding money means little in terms of his success or failure in running. He has a war chest and he can get lobby support. In general the GOP has been too pusillanimous in dealing with dems and it's own traitors. This get along BS attitude only serves incumbents and the status quo. How has the status quo worked for us in the last 4 years? Not so well. The bigger the tent means we stand for everything, which is nothing.
