Senator Graham (R-S.C.) took to Twitter this morning to weigh in on the news that President Obama is providing deportation waivers. It is nice to see a Republican senator fighting back, but did this senator forget all about, you know, Graham-nesty?
Pro tip, Senator Graham. Perhaps y’all should stop with the absurd “reach across the aisle” and bipartisanship nonsense. This is where that gets you. Lesson learned?
Oh, honey. This is not new. That is his standard operating procedure. His only “gutsy calls” are whether to serve fancy pants beef or seafood at his $40,000 per plate fundraising dinners. All. About. The One.
Like, you know, amnesty? Remember this, Senator?
Here he goes again:
Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) have rekindled their alliance on immigration reform, taking some early steps to test the political will for addressing the contentious issue this year.
Their call list hasn’t focused so much on House and Senate members who’ve been reliable pro-immigration votes in the past. Instead, they’re looking to a strange-bedfellows mix of conservative and liberal constituencies that can provide a “safety net” of support, as Graham put it, once the issue heats up.
“It’s in the infant stage,” Graham told POLITICO. “I don’t know what the political appetite is to do something.”
Say it with me: God save us from “bipartisanship.”
A Leftist weighs in with some hilarity.
Now executive orders are leadership. Got it. Also, dissent is no longer patriotic.
Conservative Twitter users aren’t taking to Senator Graham’s attempt to be tough now. They try to explain the real world to Senator Graham.
Senator Graham has been part of the problem, not the solution. His fawning “bipartisanship” nonsense has been a big part of creating the mess in which we currently find ourselves.
We hope this new burst of toughness sticks, though. Time will tell.
