THE CHICAGO WAY: 1 a.m. 'Cash for Cloture' Seals the Deal. Demcare bribe list, Pt. II

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), using exceptionally heated language, called the health care bill on Sunday "seedy Chicago politics,” “backroom deals that amount to bribes,” “Enron accounting,” “the worst of Washington,” “phony,” and a “sham,” adding that Obama’s campaign slogan of “change you can believe in, after this health care bill debacle is now becoming an empty slogan.”

Asked it the Senate bill was a done deal, Graham, appearing on CNN's "State of the Union," replied:

“This is far from over. The House and Senate bills are in many ways irreconcilable. But you know, I like David. He ran a brilliant campaign, but they're doing a lousy job governing the country, in my view. You know, change you can believe in, after this health care bill debacle is now becoming an empty slogan. And it's really been replaced by seedy Chicago politics, when you think about it, backroom deals that amount to bribes.”

Host John King interjected: “Bribes -- that's a strong word.”

Graham defended his choice of words: “Well, it is, oh, absolutely, it's a strong word. It was meant to be strong; principled compromised -- I mean, a compromise sold as a principled solution to an emotional problem like abortion that's fallen flat; Enron accounting techniques -- everything that people were upset with about Washington has gotten worse. And this bill personifies the worst of Washington.”

NOTE- Yes, the RINO Lindsey Graham is right about this one, but why his sudden concern for the constitution? He is one of many politicians who seem to ignore the constitution most of the time and now he wants to defend it?

How can Graham be against the health care bill, but support the 'cap and trade' bill?!? They're both disasters and both unconstitutional!

He supported the radical leftist Sonia Sotomayor as a Supreme Court Judge for crying out loud! Did Lindsey Graham consider the constitution when slobbering all over her?

Far too many judicial activists like Sonia Sotomayor have used PERSONAL feelings, not the law and Constitution, to impose their personal left-wing policy preferences upon our legal system, yet Graham supported her.

Lindsey Graham is NOT a conservative, he's a RINO and hypocrite. Just because he's right about his statements yesterday, doesn't mean we want to see him in the Senate in 2011. We hope he is defeated and replaced by a true constitutional conservative in 2010.
