There is really absolutely no way to twist, squint, or wish away the statement Graham made to aid in ignoring Garland.
The specificity of the statement is actually amazing.
"If Ted Cruz or Donald Trump become president, they'll all ask us not to confirm or include a selection made by President Obama." So if there is a vacancy in the final year of your first term, guess what? You will use your words again. I want you to use my words against me.
If there is a Republican president in 2016 and there is a vacancy in the final year of the first term, you can say, "Lindsey Graham said let the next president, whoever it be, make that nomination." And you can use my words against me, and you would be absolutely right. "
Of course, Graham's words weren't worth spat upon when the choice was made between sticking to what he said or trying to get an appreciative pat on the head from Donald Trump. Instead, Graham pushed Barret through her hearing, ignoring the rule that at least two minority members had to be present for a committee vote. So that's done.
And now that it's done, Republicans are pretending to be nice to Graham again. In his Friday program, Fox stock analyst Lou Dobbs made it clear that it was Lindsey Season again.
"Well, just to be clear," said Dobbs. "I don't know why anyone in the great state of South Carolina would ever vote for Lindsey Graham." Dobbs then stipulated Trump's failure to lock Obama, Biden, Clinton and everyone else in with a "D" after their names on Graham before he was "Graham betrayed President Trump almost every step of the way, he betrayed the American people and his oath of office, he did absolutely nothing to investigate Obamagate other than telling everyone, "hold on" over and over, "hold on" . " must be turned off in South Carolina. "
While Daily is Kos never To confirm what is true of Lou Dobb's reasoning, it is safe to say that there is absolute agreement on this point: Nobody in the state of South Carolina should vote for Lindsey Graham. Fortunately, there is a fantastic alternative in the form of a Democratic candidate Jaime Harrison.
