It’s “funny” how one reporter with a grudge against a person can write a hit piece, scatter in a few actual facts, then use the rest of the piece to destroy someone one. That is exactly what James Rosen with McClatchy did with his weekend attack on Lindsey. Naturally his canards were picked up by the far right, who hates Lindsey to the point where they are abjectly irrational. Fact is, the far right’s hatred of Lindsey is so irrational and so illogical there are some individuals who appear be willing to do or say anything to destroy him.
This is an abject lie. Rosen knows it is, but evidently he doesn’t care about reporting and “acurate” facts.
“...Now, in accepting cap-and-trade limits on carbon emissions, Graham stands alone — though he says “a handful” of Republican senators back him but aren’t ready to make public commitments. In a move that stunned some of his GOP Senate colleagues — and angered many of his constituents back home — Graham joined Kerry last month in publishing a New York Times op-ed column on global warming….”
Makes you wonder why, doesn’t it?
So now, all the nasty little hate-filled conservatives are attacking Lindsey over something that IS NOT TRUE. But, they hate him so much, they don’t care if they lie about him or not. The Pink Flamingo found an audio clip from a radio show in SC. It is fairly long, but you need to listen to the whole thing. You may just discover why Lindsey is so feared by the left and the right to the point where they will do anything, say anything, and lie about everything he says.
“….U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the passage of a climate bill through the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. “There are simply not the votes to pass this bill through the Senate. If the Boxer bill were to come to the Senate floor as written, I would vote “no.” “I will continue to work on ways we can combine our need to become more energy independent with our need to reduce carbon pollution. I believe there is a pathway forward – if we choose to take it — that makes us more energy independent, creates sound environmental policy, promotes job creation and frees our nation from dependency on foreign oil.”…”
When Lindsey decided to run for Congress in 1994, I was the second person he called with the news. His campaign literally took over our lives for several months. During that time several things became quite obvious. We all knew he had tremendous potential. If given the opportunity, Lindsey would emerge as one of the nation’s top leaders. All he needed was for his voice to be heard. One of our “dreams” was to get him mentioned on Rush Limbaugh’s show.
Unfortunately Rush has betrayed Lindsey. If Limbaugh were to be fair, and listen to the audio above, there is no way he could denigrate Lindsey the way he does. The real problem with Limbaugh is the little twits like Glenn Beck and the haters like Michelle Malkin take his lead and began spreading hate about people. The disgusting hate and the vile lies they have spread about Lindsey appear to be unending.
They also appear to be part of an agenda.
The Pink Flamingo feels like that’s all she does is constantly complain about the far right and how they constantly lie about Lindsey. Fortunately the Palmetto Scoop has begun to notice the same thing. This lying thing about Lindsey appears to be coordinated and is coming from both the Dems and the Far Right. Someone DOES NOT LIKE Lindsey. The left is terrified of him because of his leadership. I think the Far Right is terrified of the same thing. Lindsey is the worst enemy of the Far Right.
“…Graham has said the only way he would support a cap-and-trade bill would be if Democrats made a compromise in the interest of national security.
“Here’s what I need for me to support a climate change bill: I need an offshore drilling provision that would allow us to increase our inventories and generate money to create jobs and create more domestic capacity — not just some drilling, but aggressive drilling,” Graham said last month, noting that the U.S. has sent $440 billion overseas to buy oil from “some of the worst people in the world.”
Yet groups like the “American Energy Alliance (AEA)” are running ads blasting Graham for supporting the legislation.
Why would they so blatantly lie about Graham’s position? Check back for more on that later…”
Liberals keep harping on the fact that Lindsey is promoting cap & trade. You might want to listen to this audio from Lindsey about the whole cap/trade blow up. If you listen to the entire audio, you will understand why Lindsey co-authored the piece with John Kerry. Basically he makes a case for promoting energy, drilling, and jobs for South Carolina. Then again, the far right is more interested in spreading lies about Lindsey for some irrational reason.
Now, you want to know why both liberals and conservatives are lying about Lindsey? If you listen to the audio – the full audio – you might find out that Lindsey may be one of the REAL GROWN UP LEADERS in this country today.
Men like Lindsey cannot be allowed to lead. He is honorable, rational, decent, and a throw-back to a time when Ronald Reagan understood what it was like to govern. He is a true patriot, with very real, actual military experience, not just someone playing soldier. Lindsey is a devout Christian who tries to live the teachings of Christ. He is a man of courage who is not afraid to say and do what he feels is right.
I can understand why someone like Lindsey Graham poses a threat to the far left. He is their worst nightmare. If we lived in a perfect world, someone like Lindsey would be in demand as one of the nation’s top leaders. Unfortunately his honesty, leadership, patriotism, and honor just don’t blend well with today’s far right fringe. Because they are obnoxious, loud, and control FOX and talk radio, Lindsey doesn’t stand a chance. Decent people do not have a chance today if the do not sell out to the fringes of the far right.
Lindsey is also one of the most hard-headed people you will ever meet. When he gets started on an issue he is like a pit-bull with tunnel vision. He will not stop and he will not be backed down, and will not surrender. He will not pander to the fringe and will not betray what he believes to curry favor with the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham or Glenn Beck.
No wonder Michelle Malkin hates him. She can’t bully him. The far right has told so many lies about Lindsey now the must hate him. When you constantly lie about a person, you end up hating that person. It is the only way you can justify your lies. This is what has happened to Lindsey. So many lies have been told, they only way they can deal with it is to hate.
