Posted on 12/02/2012 10:25:51 PM PST by Olog-hai
Sen. Lindsey Graham said President Barack Obamas plan to prevent American from going over the fiscal cliff is a joke.
I think were going over the cliff, the South Carolina Republican said Sunday on CBS Face the Nation. Its pretty clear to me theyve made a political calculation. This offer doesnt remotely deal with entitlement reform in a way to save Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security from imminent bankruptcy.

Pretty testeronic talk for a liberal Republican Establishment type guy.
Where was this fine mouthpiece when we had conservatives on the rack during the primary? He was off supporting Romney who never convinced anyone of anything, because he had no core on anything.
What is Lindsey up to? He pops up like quarterly taxes. I prefer a conservative emerging as our leader, but not the McCain, Graham, Ayotte trio trying to shape things with pals across the aisle.
Obama’s plan IS to make the US like Greece. What the heck are the gutless Republicans doing about it. Forget about getting crucified in the media for calling out Obama, the press will do that no matter what the Republicans do. Have some guts Graham, call out Obama and risk your political career. Is it not worth it?
If what has been happening in Greece happens in the US economically, our riots will make theirs look like a lunch period elementary school food fight...
Greece has Sugar Daddies in Northern Europe bailing them out.
When we crash, no one is going to pick us up.
Those aren’t grants; those are loans. And there are some bizarre and draconian terms to those loans as well, chief among them the surrender of sovereignty.
John McCain did everything but anoint Obama with oil and blessings. Lindsay Graham has always been McCain's butt boy. These two share a conceit that they are high-minded and clear thinking respecting American foreign policy and they make claim to be fiscal conservatives. they fancy themselves possessed of a high minded bipartisanship, they pride themselves on walking across the aisle and appealing to the better Angels of a liberal's conscience. Benghazi revealed the depths of Obama's contempt for the American system and, consequently, for his own role as commander-in-chief.Obama has no better Angel.
McCain and Graham have had an epiphany as their delusions have been swept away. Obama, gasp, does not share our values, McCain and Lindsey are shocked to learn, in fact he is the enemy of our values domestic as well as foreign. If Obama despises the system he must also have contempt for any idea that he owes the system truth, loyalty or patriotism. Suddenly, it becomes orthodox to criticize Obama.
McCain Graham are not beating the drum now against Obama because he affronted their conservative values, he affronted their personal view of the world and betrayed the good old boy network in doing so. It is simply not done to break their high minded code of conduct at this level. So, the criticism by Graham and McCain is now to be heard.
Four and one half years too damn late and for the wrong reasons.
Exactly what one has come to expect from John Sidney McCain.
I told all my friends: if you like what the Democrats have done for Cook County, then you’ll love Obama.
The Won’s plan is not to turn the US into Greece; it’s to turn the US into Zimbabwe.
Obama thinks he can conduct a class for the GOP called Fascist Social Engineering 101.
Obama may actually fail to survive the retribution of the People for what can only be seen as a wannabe dictators conduct.
Nearly a full 4 1/2 years ago conservatives who could read and write were warning the world, senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain prominently among them, that Obama was a radical leftist bent on the destruction of the American political and economic system.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
And these sources are well worth reading:
Quote: “I told all my friends: if you like what the Democrats have done for Cook County, then you’ll love Obama.”
- Bears repeating. (The Dhimmicrats have “done” it in many places; not just Cook County.)
They keep revising those loans and making them weaker and weaker. They already had a principal write down and now forbearing interest for years. Besides verification is zero as to compliance. I have no doubt they’ve cut spending but nobody can say how much.
So long as the chief condition is metsurrender of sovereigntythe rest won’t matter too much. After all, the European Union’s own budget has been rejected by auditors for eighteen years in a row thus far . . .
The Wons plan is not to turn the US into Greece; its to turn the US into Zimbabwe.
Exactly! Which is why I dubbed him Obamugabe some time back.
Ask your typical under-30 type and he would LOVE us to be Greece.
Free tuition, cushy job with prime benefits and part-time hours, semi-permanent vacation, etc.
The kenyan has many times indicated that he desires the US to be Greece.
