Posted on 03/07/2013 7:38:00 AM PST by Servant of the Cross

Lindsey Graham slammed Rand Paul last night for holding a filibuster against Barack Obama’s domestic drone policy.

Lindsey made the remarks after dinner with Barack Obama.

“This idea that we’re going to use a drone to attack a citizen in a cafe in America is ridiculous.”

Outstanding. No clearer line of demarcation. The 'grand' OLD party squishy elites (Graham, McQueeg, i.e. the Rove-wing) versus the YOUNG BUCKS.

Rand, Ted and Mike versus the go-along-to-get-along likes of lady lindsey. South Carolina - Primary Him!!

Its time for Lindsey and his “pals” to go. This is not the time for anyone to go “squishy” anyway.

There is something wrong with a government that won’t promise that it won’t kill citizens without due process.

Actually he’s right. They’d use one of those 2,700 light tanks and a few of those billion and a half bullets they are accumualting.

Last night Grahamnesty was chumming it up at dinner with Obama and his brother McCain.
Obama is reaching out to them for that ‘Master Grand deal’: tax increases from deduction changes in return for some sort of minor changes to far future SS and medicare, and a partial reversal of sequester cuts.

Obama’s approval goes up when its reported he is dining with the RINO squad,

EXACTLY. Right now this isn't about 'will they take someone out in a cafe?'. It's about that they WON'T EVEN PROMISE they won't.

I agree. I like much of what Rand has been doing. However, him voting for Hagel was a real head scratcher. That said, Limpsey Graham must go.

Please rethink and don't start. This is how we lost Romney and in spite of what was wrong with Romney, he would have saved America. Don't fight our own regardless. Wake up America.

"Lindsey made the remarks after dinner with Barack Obama."

Obama is playing the RINOs like a dime store kazoo. Obama is a bad person and people had better wake up and take note of what Rand Paul had to say. It is also noteworthy that during the filibuster the only support he got came from Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Marco Rubio, all TEA PARTY candidates who were opposed by Karl Rove.

Ms. Lindsay and his boyfriend, McStupid, don’t care much for the constitution. They are in bi-partisan agreement with their global communist friends across the aisle that they have progressed to the throne of the global dictatorship. The only thing between them and Utopia is the American people - terrorists all.

I hope Ms. Lindsay has lots of free time after his next election. He has made some outrageous anti-American statements against the constitution and American people that can and I hope, will, be used against him. What a wacko!

Awkward is supporting a Nobel Peace Prize winner who can’t say he won’t kill citizens at will.

What that dickweed forgets is that 30 years ago Congress said the same thing about Abuse of no Knock Raids and confiscation of property of alleged criminal activities. BEFORE the accused is convicted.

Please make sure your challenger listens to Rush a couple hours a week to get the Dem talking points and learn the appropriate way to respond.

Apparently our guy in Indiana didn’t do that and got gunned down by an MSM ambush.

No, YOU rethink.

Paul did a great thing yesterday and he deserves our appreciation...FOR DOING HIS JOB when no one else would.

But on Hagel, he put on a Kabuki theater display and then DID NOT do his job. He went full GOPe and if we ignore that we deserve another Romney. Paul has a while yet to redeem himself, but if you want to stick your head in the sand about his capitulation, just sit silently and do not complain when the GOP ‘conservatives. continue to act like democrats.

So the Kenyan beats the crap out of the Republican house over the sequester and Bush tax cuts and Lindsey arranges a dinner. What a jerk.

Replay of the Chris Christie betrayal.

If, Obama and his fellow travelers think that Americans are expendable, why would Lady Graham think he would be exempt?

Just sayin'.

Then Sen. “Mc”Graham how about getting rid of the Bill of Rights. If we trust the gov’t not to blow us up then we can trust them to keep their noses out of the press, religion, etc.

McShame and Miss Lindsey are the biggest pricks this side of the moon. McShame just said Paul wasted everybody’s time yesterday and Miss Lindsey just said where were his republican friends when Bush was doing the same thing as Obummer?

Why don’t these two asskissing pricks go ahead and switch parties. I get nauseated listening to the Bobsey twins and their RINO rationale for anything Obummer wants to do.

What I am pissed off at Paul was is for ending the filibuster. Nothing more. It didnt have to end and he was right. To hell with the two butt-buddy senators.

And it’s damn wrong for a pilotless drone to kill a known American overseas who the clueless president THINKS might be part of a terrorist outfit. Oh, and if his family of ten might be with him and be blown to smithereens that’s fine too. All this garbage about every inch of the world being a “combat zone” after 9/11 is the reason NO AMERICAN is safe in anywhere in the world and that includes sitting in his front room watching a football game. REMEMBER RUBY RIDGE and WACO and put nothing past the US government when the wrong person is in the White House.
