Lindsey Graham Boasts
About Dinner with Obama

Breitbart´s Big Government, by William Bigelow

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 3/7/2013 9:53:31 PM

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) released a statement Thursday boasting about his dinner with Barack Obama. He made the following statement after meeting with the President: Last night´s dinner with President Obama and my Republican colleagues was productive and substantive. I hope it will serve as the beginning of a new, long-overdue paradigm where people in elected office actually begin talking to each other about meaningful issues. While Graham and his pals like John McCain were genuflecting before the president, Rand Paul was filibustering on the Senate floor, accompanied by

Comments:
"My Dinner With 0bama," the next docudrama by the Hollyweird left. I just don´t want to imagine what it must look like to see our RINOS rolling around in the mud that is the Washington Tidal Basin.

#8 - Perfect analogy.

They will get rolled like a bunch of drunk shriners in an alley. Again.

Their public rebuke of Rand Paul is reprehensible and shoots good Americans in the back.

One of the biggest wins of the night was Rand Paul got American´s attention, as did Cruz by reading the supporting tweets for the filibuster.

Enjoy your cozy dinners Miss Lindsey while real tea party conservatives do the heavy lifting you refuse to do.

I´m sure it was productive FOR the president as he gauged your resolve and determination to win majority in Senate and expand majority in House in 2014.

So productive Sen. Carl Levin decided he could easily retire and it won´t hurt the Dems in 2014.

You don´t have "friends across the aisle", you knucklheads. They are the opposition, and the enemy. They don´t share your ideas, values or concerns.

I just realized why the "establishment" republicans won´t fight institutionalized vote fraud--they are in on it. Everyone who goes along gets to be a career/lifelong member of the ruling class, those who don´t will be eliminated if at all possible. This explains why nobody supported Allen West in the face of flagrant fraud.

Election 2014: Lindsey Graham challenger

Columbia, SC - Four of U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham´s announced challengers in June´s Republican primary pledged support for each other Thursday if any of them end up in a runoff with the Seneca incumbent. But a news conference announcing their alliance on the State House steps took an unexpected turn when the most minor of the candidates, Dave Feliciano of Spartanburg, took the podium and called Graham "ambiguously gay." Feliciano said, "It´s about time that South Carolina (says) hey, We´re tired of the ambiguously gay senator from South Carolina. We´re ready for a new leader to merge the Republican Party.

After seven days of fruitless searches for MH370, new reports suggest the plane made several course corrections after the cockpit’s last known contact with air traffic control. The New York Times is reporting that radar signals recorded by the Malaysian military appear to show the plane ascending to 45,000 feet and making a sharp turn to the right not long after it disappeared from civilian radar. (Snip) The same data suggests the plane descended to 23,000 feet as it approached the Malaysian island of Penang, but then re-ascended and flew northwest over the Straits of Malacca. CNN is reporting that authorities think the plane may have gone in

The day before the Iowa caucuses in 2008, I wrote about the massive crowds of young people at Barack Obama rallies, noting that his candidacy would collapse “if they don’t show up.” The next night, after Obama’s victory celebration in Des Moines, Obama strategist Steve Hildebrand spotted me in a crowd. “The kids showed up!” he said fiercely. They did. But where are they now? An army of 15 million voters under 30 swept Obama past Hillary Clinton and John McCain and to the presidency in 2008. More than 12 million helped him return in 2012. But now his presidency is on the line — and the Obama youth are abandoning him in

During the health care debate, President Barack Obama said people can keep their doctor if they wanted. Now he’s explaining why that might not be the case. Don’t blame his health care law, Obama suggested in a Friday interview with WebMD. He said it comes down to narrowing provider networks, a health care trend that predates Obamacare. Here’s how Obama described it this morning: (Snip) But that’s true if your employer suddenly decides this network is going to give you a better deal. ‘We think this is going to help keep premiums lower.

Three minutes. That is the time frame to deliberately switch off a plane´s transponder and remain invisible on radar without arousing any suspicion if they are flying between Malaysian and Vietnamese airspace, pilots say. One pilot familiar with the route said there is a point over the Igari navigational waypoint in the South China Sea where commercial pilots have to use radio to communicate with air traffic controllers as the planes would be out of reach of civilian radars. Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 carrying 239 people on board disappeared over the Igari area last Saturday while en route to Beijing.

A bipartisan group of senators says they have reached a compromise extending jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed for five months. If the Senate approves the deal, it would break a months-long stalemate over the issue in the chamber between the two parties. Two leaders of the negotiations -- Democratic Sen. Jack Reed of Rhode Island and Republican Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada -- said in a statement that the deal would be retroactive to the end of last year. Since that time, jobless coverage has expired for roughly 2 million people. The proposal would be paid for by extending some customs fees and changing how some

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia — Authorities searching for a missing Malaysian airliner may extend the hunt hundreds of miles farther west into the Indian Ocean, a U.S. official said Thursday, as the Malaysian government acknowledged it has made little progress in solving the mystery of the vanished plane. The White House cited unspecified “new information” as the basis for expanding the search. Administration officials later said the new information was that the plane’s engines remained running for approximately four hours after it disappeared from radar early Saturday over the Gulf of Thailand.

Fertility is the missing chapter in sex education. Sobering facts about women’s declining fertility after their 20s are being withheld from ambitious young women, who are propelled along a career track devised for men. The refusal by public schools’ sex-education programs to acknowledge gender differences is betraying both boys and girls. The genders should be separated for sex counseling. It is absurd to avoid the harsh reality that boys have less to lose from casual serial sex than do girls, who risk pregnancy and whose future fertility can be compromised by disease. Boys need lessons in basic ethics and moral reasoning

US officials believe that two communications systems aboard Malaysian Airlines flight 370 were shut down separately, 14 minutes apart - which indicates the plane did not come down because of a sudden catastrophic failure. The data reporting system was shut down at 1.07 am and the transponder was turned off at 1.21 am just after the the pilot signed off to Malaysian air traffic controllers with ´All right, good night,´ and before the Boeing 777 apparently changed course and turned west. According to investigators this indicated that the switch-off could have been a deliberate act and officials told ABC News that the

Democratic Rep. Dan Kildee (Mich.)’s resolution condemns Issa for repeated clashes with Democrats – exchanges Kildee said don’t live up to the responsibility of a committee chairman.

In case you hadn’t heard, young people these days — a.k.a “the Millennials” — are the most cynical and distrusting generation ever recorded. Only 19 percent think most people can be trusted. According to a big study from the Pew Research Center, they are less attached to marriage, religion, and political institutions than Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the other demographic flavors journalists love to use. They like their friends, their digital “social networks,” and their toys, and that’s about it.
