Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) lashed out at fellow Republicans Tuesday for a "capitulation ... of dramatic proportions" to Democrats and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) in the lame-duck Congress.
Graham said Republicans have no one to blame but themselves for allowing ratification of the New START Treaty and other legislation in the period before new lawmakers are sworn in in January.
"When it's all going to be said and done, Harry Reid has eaten our lunch," Graham said on Fox News radio. "This has been a capitulation in two weeks of dramatic proportions of policies that wouldn't have passed in the new Congress."
Gosh Lindsey, you appear to be growing a spine as you are going to be up for election in two years or so. Hmmm....He does make some good points though:
"I can understand the Democrats being afraid of the new Republicans; I can't understand Republicans being afraid of the new Republicans," Graham lamented on WTMA radio. "They're not opportunities to take everything you couldn't do for two years and jam it. It's literally what they're doing, across the board. And after a while, I stop blaming them, and I blame us."
Graham blamed outgoing Republican senators in particular.
"They have used the power of the Senate against the minority, and we have, quite frankly, a handful of us have been letting them do it. And a lot of the people who are doing this got beat. And that's what makes me so upset," he said. "It makes me disappointed that, with a new group of Republicans coming in, we could get a better deal on almost everything."
Yeah, people like the maggot sucking infested with pork and waste in his veins, joke of a Republican George Voinovich. I wish he would leave Ohio and never come back. He makes me ill to consider myself a Republican. The big tent should not include such a self serving, spineless, no conscience maggot like Crying George.
George Voinovich has betrayed the present and future security of this country, along with mindless male model Scott Brown in doing stupid things like voting for the repeal of Dont Ask Dont Tell and the START Treaty. Morons!
