Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., announced on Thursday that he is actively exploring the possibility of a presidential run in 2016.

Graham said that his new website, Security Through Strength – marketed as Graham’s version of Reagan’s “peace through strength” philosophy – will help him “test the waters” for “a potential presidential candidacy.”

Graham represents everything that is wrong in the Republican Party.  Another poster child for Term Limits he was elected in the wave against Bill Clinton in 94.  However in 1997, he took part in an abortive coup against House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

The list of grievances I have against Graham could  fill the whole front page of the site.  My feelings toward this Republican can only be summed up in this manner.

If Graham were to ever win the nomination, which thank god he hasn’t a prayer of doing so.  I would gleefully vote and campaign for Hillary Clinton.

  1. If Graham sought to depose Gingrich early ( Newt would have been deposed one-two years later, had Newt not quit first ) that shows sound judgment on Graham’s part.

    Newt had led the GOP to huge losses with his monomania on the Lewinsky affair.

    Resignation

    In 1998 Republicans lost five seats in the House—the worst midterm performance in 64 years by a party not holding the presidency. Gingrich, who won his reelection, was held largely responsible for Republican losses in the House. His private polls had given his fellow Republican Congressmen a false impression that pushing the Lewinsky scandal would damage Clinton’s popularity and result in the party winning a net total of six to thirty seats in the US House of Representatives in this election.[86] The day after the election, a Republican caucus ready to rebel against him prompted his resignation of the speakership. He also announced his intended and eventual full departure from the House in January 1999.[87] When relinquishing the speakership, Gingrich said he was “not willing to preside over people who are cannibals,” and claimed that leaving the House would keep him from overshadowing his successor.[8

    From Newt Gingrich entry in wiki.

  2. your read on that whole time period is convoluted and that is being nice.

    Newt was destroyed and Clinton was protected by the power of a complicit press. Your summation of the events prove how thoroughly the press convinced the public of lies.

    Clintons crime was lying under oath and suborning perjury. The press made it about sex and the persecution of a man who has now been tied to a pedophile sex ring. It’s his private life and Newt is evil….

    Clinton sexually abused a woman in the work place and has been praised and defended for it.

    You do so even now.

  3. Lewinsky and Clinton were both idiots.

    I don’t condone what either did.

    This wasn’t an issue that the American people wanted to obsess on endlessly.

  4. In most private workplaces I know of these days Clinton would have been terminated for what he did

    But this was not the kind of ” high crime and misdemeanor “ that impeachment was meant to be.

    Going down that road was major error on the part of House Republicans. It is quite amazing that we still have to address it now.

  5. he lied under oath and suborned perjury.

    That was his ” high crime and misdemeanor “ and he was impeached for it.

    He was not removed from office because raping and sexual abuse of women is OK, and so is lying to cover it up as long as it’s a Democrat that does it. That is what the press, the democrats, and anyone who believes that he was persecuted for having sex have condoned whether they’re bright enough to realize it or not.

  6. Phantom

    That’s my point – he has not been charged or convicted of rape and so until he is successfully prosecuted in law, then he has not raped anybody.

  7. I would say it differently.

    You can say ” he was never convicted of rape ” and leave it at that, without inference.

    He was charged by someone who was credible. This is something we do not know. ( though Clinton enemies have often said that he did it )

  8. Phantom

    It’s not OK for someone to just describe a person as a rapist or child molester because they ‘think’ he may have done it or because someone has accused it. You wouldn’t like it against you, none of us would. I don’t know about the situation in the States but here in the UK a woman can make a rape allegation against a man and she keeps her anonymity regardless of how the case ends up but the man can and will be publicly named as an accused rapist – and even if the case is dropped often the damage to his reputation is done, but the woman remains secure in her anonymity regardless of the veracity of her story.

  9. Bill Clinton is a multiple rapist, a serial abuser of women, astonishingly corrupt, a war criminal and probably a killer also.

  10. Maybe I am, but unlike Bill Clinton you won’t find a single witness or scrap of evidence to back your claim.

  11. He was charged with rape in public accusations by Kathleen Willy before she could file it formally with the court they skinned her cat on her front lawn and she had her life threatened.

    Part of the lying under oath that Clinton was found guilty of was part of this. Another woman that it was claimed he raped Elizabeth Ward Gracen played on the TV show Highlander and fled the country to avoid a subpena.

    As for the child molestation that is under investigation now. It has been proven that he was the guest at orgy island as the quest of a convicted pedophile. No women have come forward but this is a new turn of events.

  12. No one here has the slightest idea as to whether Clinton harmed anyone or not.

    There is zero evidence – only statements that cannot be proven or disproven.

  13. It looks like Romney’s decision is popular with Jeb Bush:

    “The nascent presidential hopes of another member of the Bush family received a boost on Friday as Mitt Romney surprised commentators by pulling out of the already crowded race for the Republican nomination in 2016. Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor and relative of two presidents, met with Romney last week to discuss their competing bid for support from the party’s mainstream donors. He was quick – if not instantaneous – to thank the former Massachusetts governor for standing aside.”

  14. ‘Orgy island’ There is a place called Orgy island ? – It must be the most crowded island on earth 🙂

  15. Troll doesn’t mind unsubstantiated, slanderous rape or pedophilia claims against political people he doesn’t like; we call it the tea party paint by numbers brand of TRUE constitutional conservatism.

  16. Bill Clinton has made several visits to billionaire Jeffrey Epstein orgy Island.

    This stuff is recent and all over the news. I understand that Daphne just comments out of hate because she has nothing of value to add, but I just love when she parades how ignorant she really is.
