GOP establishment fail: Lindsey Graham recommits to violate Grover Norquist tax pledge

On ABC’s “This Week,” Sen. Lindsey Graham reiterated his intent to violate his pledge with Grover Norquist not to raise taxes in order to strike a ‘deal’ for the upcoming fiscal cliff.

This is not the first time Graham has indicated that he would violate the pledge.

Given his history on many important issues,¬†conservatives¬†are not surprised at his willingness to comply with Democrats’ demands.

Just another example of why only real conservative leadership works in Washington.

    RINO is the nicest thing I can say about this Goober.

    Lindsay Graham has been a RINO from birth, anything for “himself” is his Quota!

      Roger that. Come on S.C. We are counting on you guys to get this Rino out of there, and get a real conservative in, come 2014. . This guy has had just too many cordial after hour drinks with Mccain. Three strikes and your out in America. As Paul Ryan would say, “Together we can do this. Let’s get it done”.,


    graham is a weak man

    And so it begins. He’s the second I’ve read about who plans to cave. Politicians can’t be trusted.

  • Steve_J

    If he and others give in on this they will give in on everything else. Then they can accept their fate as second tier backbencers. Which seems to be the postion they are most comforatable with.

    Yes, how about a real conservative?
    What about ?
    Tea party, conservative, class of 2010, businessman, oh, and he’s black, too. Liberal head exploding time!

    This is what happens when retaining power becomes more important than doing the right thing.
