Let us not forget that Ms. Lindsey Graham is such a RINO he puts others to shame with the same label.

His is making TV appearances, speaking a great deal in the Senate because he understands he is up for election in 2014 and will likely receive a primary challenge.

Remember it was Ms. Lindsey who refused to go with a filibuster of the far left Supreme Court nominees Sotomayor and Kagan using the wimp ass excuse that a president’s nominations for the Supreme Court shouldn’t be blocked. 

What the hell does he think he is there for as the party of the opposition.  

Lindsey Graham Refused to Back Rand Paul and Ted Cruz on Gun Background Checks Filibuster.

To add further acts of stupidity to his resume Ms. Lindsey challenged Ran Paul’s filibuster on Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) who was challenging Obama’s decision to use drones on U.S. Citizens at home and abroad.  

Appearing on CNN on March 31, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said the Senate gun control bill is “going nowhere.”

After suggesting the current background check system is broken, Graham asked why expanding a broken system would be considered the way to go. “I think [the gun control] legislation is going nowhere, but I’d like to have a robust debate about improving the system,” Graham explained.

He said the attempt to pass new laws without first focusing on enforcing laws already on the books is misguided to begin with:

The idea of private individuals transferring their weapons and having to go through a background check makes no sense. Before you’d expand the background check there were 76,000 people last year that failed a background check and less than one percent got prosecuted. There were 9,000 people in 2010 who failed a background check who were felons on the run, so before you expand checks to include private individuals let’s put resources into the current system we have.

Although he said he will not be part of any possible GOP filibuster of the bill, Graham did say he will vote against universal background checks.
