TP: Sen Graham says you are dying out

This is what Republican Senator Lindsey Graham from South Carolina told the New York Times:

"The problem with the Tea Party, I think it’s just unsustainable because they can never come up with a coherent vision for governing the country. It will die out.”

“We don’t have a lot of Reagan-type leaders in our party. Remember Ronald Reagan Democrats? I want a Republican that can attract Democrats.”

“Ronald Reagan would have a hard time getting elected as a Republican today.”

Senator Graham is saying what I have said all along. I supported Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was a decent President. Ike was better. TR was even better. And of course Lincoln was the best Republican President.

The Republicans today are too radical, corrupt, fiscally irresponsible, pandering and incompetent to the core. And they do not appeal to minorities. In fact, they are about to chuck their black Party Chairman.

I don't think they are going to make it. And they way they are going, just having had the worst President of the modern era, it will be better for America if their party just falls apart.

>>> "The problem with the Tea Party, I think it’s just unsustainable because they can never come up with a coherent vision for governing the country. It will die out.”

Graham better watch his Ps&Qs...as a very liberal Republican that Tea Party he doesn't think has a "coherent vision" might rally to fill his seat with someone who has stronger conservative values.

>>> “We don’t have a lot of Reagan-type leaders in our party. Remember Ronald Reagan Democrats? I want a Republican that can attract Democrats.”

Remember that the Dems hated Reagan? It was only after he beat the crap out of them, supported effective policies and won the hearts of the people that Reagan got any respect from the left at all.

>>> “Ronald Reagan would have a hard time getting elected as a Republican today.”

Reagan would be a Tea Party supporter.

>>> Senator Graham is saying what I have said all along. I supported Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was a decent President. Ike was better. TR was even better. And of course Lincoln was the best Republican President.

It's a shame we can't make a list of the "best Democrat Presidents." Instead, we have to settle for a "best of the worst" list.

>>> The Republicans today are too radical, corrupt, fiscally irresponsible, pandering and incompetent to the core.

That's pretty funny coming from a liberal Obama fan.

>>> And they do not appeal to minorities.

Well, not being pandering-welfare-state-anti-American-scumbags like the Democrats, the Republicans will have to continue to hold to a platform of values and integrity rather than the thuggery, corruption and dishonesty that the Democrats have so long held dear.

>>> In fact, they are about to chuck their black Party Chairman.

Actually, ditching Steele would be evidence of how non-racist the Republicans are...judging a guy on his deeds and competence, rather than on his skin color, like the Dems do.

>>> I don't think they are going to make it.

Someone's in for a shock come November. LOL!

>>> And they way they are going, just having had the worst President of the modern era, it will be better for America if their party just falls apart.

History will find Bush to be one of our better Presidents...while Barry will be, well-deservedly, relegated to sub-Carter status.

"Graham better watch his Ps&Qs...as a very liberal Republican"

Liberal? You are the one who says Iraq was worth it because we liberated people! You defend the biggest wastrel in the history of America - George W. Bush - a President who supported a totally unfunded giant deficit tax cut while fighting not one, but two wars and when the economy was doing okay.

You have the most liberal views of all. I can't believe you are criticizing a fellow Republican for being liberal.

I guess you and Dick Cheney and the other radical Republicans will run Graham out of the party just like you did Charlie Christ and others. The good'uns are going going gone. What you've got left are the Dick Cheney types.

And lastly, as much you consider yourself an expert on history, my friend, history has not been kind to Bush already. Historians, as opposed to you, already say he is in the garbage can of history as the worst President of the modern era. In fact, these historians say Bush is worse than Nixon. He is bottom five bottom of the barrel, according to them, as opposed to you. Keep dreamin tho ... really, Bush was a great President... yeah, that's the ticket...

Actually, I didn't...but I do defend that humanitarian aspect of the war. Believe it or not, conservatives do believe in the use of force for certain humanitarian reasons. What makes it a "liberal position," is that liberals are quick to call for the use of force, as long as it's someone else who's doing the fighting and dying.

>>> You defend the biggest wastrel in the history of America - George W. Bush - a President who supported a totally unfunded giant deficit tax cut while fighting not one, but two wars and when the economy was doing okay.

Sure...what Bush did has been PROVEN to be effective. You, on the other hand, support the ACTUAL biggest wastrel in the history of America...in fact, he's spent more in one year than all previous Presidents COMBINED. He's also running an unfunded war, and added TRILLIONS in debt with more unfunded socialist policies. The hypocrisy doesn't go unnoticed.

>>> You have the most liberal views of all. I can't believe you are criticizing a fellow Republican for being liberal.

Funny new "hey, you're more liberal than liberals" tactic. Very amusing...pretty lame, but very amusing.

>>> I guess you and Dick Cheney and the other radical Republicans will run Graham out of the party just like you did Charlie Christ and others. The good'uns are going going gone. What you've got left are the Dick Cheney types.

God, I hope so. The country would be MUCH better off if libs were relegated to the darkest of fringes.

>>> And lastly, as much you consider yourself an expert on history, my friend, history has not been kind to Bush already.

He is bottom five bottom of the barrel, according to them, as opposed to you.

"History" hasn't been written yet. Right now, it's only the far-left loons and Bush haters who feel the need to try and taint Bush's legacy...and bolster the farce that is the Obama regime. One only needs to recall the loathing the left had for Reagan...and now look at how quick they are to lick his butt and try to endear themselves to his legacy.

>>> Keep dreamin tho ... really, Bush was a great President... yeah, that's the ticket..

Yeah...he was...especially when compared to the corruption and incompetence of Barry's tax-cheat clown circus. They make Bush shine by comparison. Thanks, Barry!

"“Ronald Reagan would have a hard time getting elected as a Republican today.”"


That's not saying much. You'd have a hard time getting democrats to vote for JFK today. They'd call him divisive and extremist. Yet, for some reason they like Barry... Go figure.

"You'd have a hard time getting democrats to vote for JFK today."

Putting aside the fact that you offer no facts to support your statement, so what? You are not to JFK what a Republican sitting Senator is to Ronald Reagan. Your statement is not only based on nothing more than your subjective Republican view, but partisan. Senator Graham's statement is not partisan. This is Republican on Republican.

Now that we've established your statement is irrelevant, go ahead, attack the Senator. Run Graham out of your party with Governor Christ and the other moderates.

You will be left with dreggy dopey radicals like Sharron Angle who is trying her best to hide her real positions from voters, even going so far to sue her opponent not to disclose them:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3036677/

Angle of course thinks she's the greatest, so much so she even just told us she is just like Abraham Lincoln:

http://thinkprogress.org/2010/07/06/angle-lincoln/

Yup, you and Angle will be the ideal Republicans.

I made a statement, not write a thesis. My statement was also correct.

This is a moderate on a conservative. Not so non partisan after all.


And why would Graham's opinion be any more correct than anyone else's? He doesn't have a crystal ball. If he thinks Reagan would have a hard time getting elected today, he's entitled to his opinion. My opinion is that he would win in another landslide, as conditions are similar to when he was first elected.

"Resist, we much. We must, and we much. About that, be committed."
