Pathetic Pathetic Pathetic!

Pathetic Pathetic Pathetic!

Is what greeted me when I walked in the door tonight.

And for once, she wasn’t talking about me.

Walking examples for term limits.

Good grief!

    Not to mention that the tag team of McCain/Graham have now corrupted Marco Rubio. That is why McCain went after Ted Cruz during the Hagel hearings last week.

    When the vote came up for Brennan, Cruz, Lee and Paul voted “nay.” Rubio voted with McCain and Graham “aye.”

    Move over, Marco; there’s a new Cuban American in town and he is taking names.

      The Friendly Grizzly in reply to retire05. | March 8, 2013 at 1:28 pm

      With Rubio there’s nothing to corrupt. He’s Cuban-American with CUBAN the operative word. He’s out for his people, not the general good of the country.

    Graham and McCain are poster boys for term limits having long lost their political effectiveness.

    Yet, the public in their states continue to re-elect them for reasons that are beyond my comprehension.

    Rubio OTOH has demonstrated several times that he resides in RINOland and will not serve conservative interests very well.

    Thank gawd that we have a few good guys like Ted Cruz…

Yes,that, plus an ideology test too in order to identify the statists from Yanks.

My comments on the subject weren’t as G-Rated.

They and a few others were having dinner, guests of Obama, during the filibuster. (What else did they get?)

That was mild compared to what I said.

    Sanddog in reply to Rosalie. | March 7, 2013 at 9:44 pm

    my mom casually mentioned them in an email and I fired off an exceptionally profane response… which she immediately forwarded to my brother and everyone in her contacts.

      lc in reply to Sanddog. | March 8, 2013 at 9:36 am

      Please have her forward them to McCain and Graham- twitter, Facebook, email.
      We’ve got to speak up and stand up. Let them hear from “we the people!”

American flag lapel pins, military service and dining with the president do NOT substitute for one’s oath to uphold and defend the constitution against all enemies foreign AND DOMESTIC.

McCain and Graham should have taken constitutional law classes from Hillsdale college, not the White House “professor”.

McCain is a senile old fool who should have never run for office in the first place. And Graham is an amnesty-loving, constitution-shredding piece of crap. They both should be ejected from office.

WHY is South Carolina continuing to RE-elect GRAHAM??

    RKae in reply to heimdall. | March 7, 2013 at 11:19 pm

    Same reason MOST old-timers keep getting re-elected: name recognition. “Hey, he’s been our guy forever!”

    scooterjay in reply to heimdall. | March 8, 2013 at 6:23 am

    Graham’s days are numbered… in the upstate of SC (I am a dual resident of Columbia and Duncan, SC) the locals are highly upset at Mr. Graham’s shenanigans. Recently he informed his constituency that he would vote with his heart and mind as opposed to what the constituency wished. Local talk radio are running the “Who voted for Graham?” radio ads and the populace is pissed at his “king” attitude.

      retire05 in reply to scooterjay. | March 8, 2013 at 10:14 am

      Well, you South Carolinians need to hit the streets running, NOW. The election is just a year and a half away, and if you want to rid your state of the stench that is Graham, you need to start doing it now. It won’t be easy; Pretty Boy is known throught out your state.

      But we did it in Texas against Kay Bailey Hutchison and got Ted Cruz for our efforts. Now we are working on a plan that if South Carolinians elect Graham again, we are sending your all our illegals as a consolation prize.

        RWGinger in reply to retire05. | March 8, 2013 at 12:51 pm

        Actually KGH was not running but you have the right idea
        Against all odds Ted Cruz won and took down a long established do nothing rino Lt Goc Dewhurst

        I like you idea of sending our illegals to a state that jeeps electing other RINOS

        we could make a list.

Did one democrat come out and assail Rand? No — two seethingly resentful RINO prima donnas did. They made a mistake. The memory of Paul’s filibuster was too fresh, the contrast between his and their words, his largeness and their petulance, too clear. McCain will be there forever, but we can get rid of Graham. He must be primaried.

The voters of Arizona saw the same things you did. I’m not sure McCain will be there forever if a stable constitutionally minded candidate emerges to primary his sorry behind back to the private sector, where he should be able to find a nice job picking lettuce for $50/hr under a hot Yuma sun. But he can’t do that, can he? He even said so.

    Anchovy in reply to Paul. | March 7, 2013 at 10:46 pm

    Even if McCain does not get primaried, Mark Kelly has been dragging his poor wife, Gabby Giffords, around Arizona using her as a spokespuppet for more gun control. He is a despicable POS using her like that, but that would make him a perfect democrat to run against McCain.

Current Drudge headline: “Boehner-Obama Deals Add $21,817 in New Debt Per Household…”

The “old guard” Republicans need to go.

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | March 7, 2013 at 9:25 pm

You put in a hard days work on the internets hearig “Pathetic Pathetic Pathetic!” from us about McCain and Grahamnesty’s betrayal, then you walk in the door and you hear it from Mrs. Legal Insurrection. Have you no refuge?

I might even stay Republican if we can get rid of the Judas Iscariots in the party.

From the Canadian Free Press: Rand Paul’s filibuster shows the GOP what leadership looks like

Ain’t that the truth…

I felt the same way about 15 years ago. Voters in Az turned down JD Hayworth for McLame in the last round. Hopefully SC wont repeat that mistake.

    Graham will win reelection if there’s no credible opponent. Local conservatives need to consolidate around a candidate and be prepared to fight Graham’s 4.5 million war chest.

They are what they are. “Business as usual”, “Don’t rock the boat, we’ll lose the money”, “Cooperate and graduate”. Of course they’re hot about Senator Paul; he’s exposed them for the self-serving RINOs that they are. Note the names of the Republican Senators who had dinner with the President. State and local groups of genuine conservatives, work to unseat them the next time they’re up for election, replacing them with someone more likely to object when the federal government wants to start lining us up against the wall and shooting us. The election in ’14 ought to be about impeaching President Obama and for that the GOP has to take seats in the Senate.

    Paul in reply to Ike. | March 7, 2013 at 11:35 pm

    “Of course they’re hot about Senator Paul; he’s exposed them for the self-serving RINOs that they are.”

    Actually, McCain and Graham did a pretty fine job of exposing themselves as self-serving RINO’s. But it was Rand’s filibuster that provided the honey-trap.

After dining on fine food and wine at taxpayer’s expense, Obama, McCain and Graham watched a movie.

It was “Mr. Smith Goes To Washington”; I am told they all cheered the part when Jimmy Stewart collapses.

huskers-for-palin | March 7, 2013 at 10:31 pm

My two senators were sub par on this matter (NE). Johanns was silent, Fischer only sent a tweet (I’m soooo underwhelmed).

Fischer would of scored major points with me if she either (a) asked a “long” question while Rand was in a bathroom/rest break, (b) participated in the filibuster or at the very least (c) showed up in person for support.

She voted for Kerrey as SOS, backtracked on the cloture vote for Hagel and now only sends a tweet for Paul. She’s been saying a lot of “bipartisan” stuff lately and her welcome with is me is wearing thin.

Whippersnapper | March 7, 2013 at 10:39 pm

The words were coming out of the mouths of McCain & Lindsey Graham, but it was JEALOUSY that was speaking.

McCain & Lindsey recognize that they are slipping away to irrelevance. Lindsey Graham will be successfully defeated in the 2014 election–not in the primary itself, but in the primary run-off. Bank on it.

McCain and Graham have finally pushed it over the top. With fellow party members like this, who’s time have come and gone, have no problem back stabbing their fellow senators without hesitation. They need to come to grips with the idea they’re no longer viable and let the new upcoming stars take over the narrative. Neither one of these RINO’s have anything much to contribute anymore.
Rand Paul was awesome and he has done more in just over 2 years than both McCain and Graham have combined in their many years of so-called service.

Subotai Bahadur | March 7, 2013 at 10:52 pm

It was said best by a commenter over at HOTAIR:

> Interesting ironic object lesson in all this. For months who were the ones lecturing us about the need for party unity in order to win? RINOs. Now who are the first ones out of the gate to attack and undermine party unity in the aftermath of the most effective and popular attack on Obama we’ve yet seen? The RINOs.

The surest way to gain the hatred of the Institution Republicans, is to stand up to the Democrats for the Constitution.

We need a SECOND Party, now.

Subotai Bahadur

I found a word today while trying to write a comment, it is nacient, a misspelling of nascent. It means: something ancient being reborn, Urban Dictionary

I tried to call Graham today. I wanted to ask him why Ambassador Stevens was left to die in Benghazi. Who ordered all possible help to STAND DOWN? And what principle exactly would inspire him to stand and fight for even 20 minutes, not the horrible death of a friend it seems.

Henry Hawkins | March 7, 2013 at 11:41 pm

While Graham has some sort of inexplicable magical mojo keeping him going in SC, I do believe McCain will retire rather than run again in 2016 at age 80.

I do think that the Cruz, Paul, Rubio, Ryan, et al Young Turks axis is quickly taking increasing control over the GOP and marginalizing the empty suit windbags like John McCain’t and Whimsey Gwaham. If true, and if it continues, that is far bigger news for the long haul than this filibuster victory.

Henry Hawkins | March 7, 2013 at 11:44 pm

It just occurred to me that McCain & Graham are jealous of Rand Paul because they can’t stand up for 13 hours and would have run out of sensible things to say in the first five minutes.

OK…. first five seconds.

“What the hell are McCain and Graham doing? I’m disgusted.”

So what else is new?

So are we saying wet behind the ears newbies like Cruz and Rubio have NOTHING to learn from veteran experienced senators like McCain and Graham? Who’s being stupid?

    Doug Wright in reply to G Joubert. | March 8, 2013 at 12:43 am

    Ah, but they are learning from the mistakes of their senatorial elders! Thus, Cruz, et al, are gaining much wisdom and setting a new course for the GOP in the senate.

    Paul in reply to G Joubert. | March 8, 2013 at 2:56 am

    How to kowtow to the Capitol Hill Crony Club is not a lesson I’d want any of my junior senators to be learning.

    No, the only lesson they can learn is that term limits should have been enacted for congress (both houses) long ago. Enough of career politicians.

    Henry Hawkins in reply to G Joubert. | March 8, 2013 at 10:22 am

    As it turns out, and using your own terms, it appears you are being stupid.

    RWGinger in reply to G Joubert. | March 8, 2013 at 12:57 pm

    WHO said Cruz etc had nothing to learn from older Senators?

    On this subject however I would hope you agree McCain and Graham did the party no favors
    but ultimately hurt themselves more

McCain and Graham are two pieces of trash, and useful idiots of the left. Always were, always have been. The only reason they’ve survived this long is like Obama, they’ve been protected by the democrat media — as is McCain’s useful idiot daughter, who the left trots out on occasion, to sell-out her country.

There are not enough profane words — and I know ’em all — to express my outrage at these two corrupt morons.

Both Graham and McCain are political frauds and intellectually corrupt! You can’t assume anything with the Government!!!! We the people, for example expected you to put your Country ahead of your desire for reelection! You sir’s, are total sellouts! How much of the 16 Trillion in debt are YOU responsible for?

Move over empty chair. You have company.

So now McCain has called Rand Paul, Amash, and Ted Cruz “Wacko Birds”. Isn’t that a violation of senate rules?

“No Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.”

I guess disrespecting a fellow Senator is OK as long as you do it on national TV rather than on the floor…

For clarity of definition, when referring to McCain/Graham, please use the term “McCain and his poodle”.

McCain always relished his ‘maverick’ status. When he would preen for the cameras and talk smack about people on the right. He only got that status because it pleased the media, who were willing to play along and give him the stage his ego demanded.

Only so long as he took on those they opposed. As soon as he became the opponent of their chosen ‘won’ that love affair ended, and McCain became just another evil rethuglican to be ignored or derided.

Then along comes Paul, showing what a real maverick is. Someone who is willing to not only go directly at the current administration, but also the long standing policies that led us to this point where Obama/Holder thought themselves above any limits or oversight.

An effort the media did their level best to ignore.

So, not only was McCain lashing out as one of those responsible for failing to rein in the questionable, if not odious policies of this executive branch, he was also carry the water of his old friends – the mainstream media – seeking to get back in their good graces and restore order to an upside down world.

A confused, cranky old man who’s time has passed, but either cannot or will not see.

2nd Ammendment Mother | March 8, 2013 at 11:24 am

Somedays it makes you wonder!

As a former democrat, I am so very proud of Dr. Rand Paul, I donated as much as I could to his campaign.

As for mccain and his idiot sidekick… STFU!

I’m very hawkish, but I love the US Consitution and respect its sole purpose of protecting Americans from their govt. Do Mccain and Graham have NO clue how stupid they sound defending Holder’s right to claim drones can be used to kill americans on american soil with no due process???

And also, where the hell are the demonrats or the lapdog MSM? Not one single sign they even care that the American AG Holder declared its a-ok to assassinate Americans on American soil. These same dems and MSM who eviscerated Bush for wiretapping americans’s phones for calls made to terrorists, and he even required a warrant, which I think made sense.

So, liberals, please stfu the next time you wanna speak about principles, its pretty clear, you have NONE!
