We’ve lost track of how many times the Greenville, S.C. Republican Party has censured liberal U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham – but it happened again this week.
What makes this censure different? It was issued less than a month after three Tea Party leaders publicly disassociated themselves with the Greenville GOP – a move which should have shifted the ideological orientation of the organization to the left.
Apparently even the new “centrist” party is still livid with the left-leaning Graham, though. According to the group’s latest resolution, Graham has engaged “repeatedly in a course of conduct that violates fundamental principles of the South Carolina Republican Platform, even after such actions have been publicly called to his attention.”
The censure goes on to say Graham has “committed a long series of actions” that are “fundamentally inconsistent with the principles of the South Carolina Republican Party” – and concludes Graham “should be replaced as Senator for the State of South Carolina at the earliest possible electoral opportunity.”
We’re not Republicans and so we could give a rat’s rear end regarding the “principles of the GOP,” but we concur wholeheartedly with the conclusion that Graham should be replaced.
The resolution lists twenty-nine examples of Graham’s inconsistency with the GOP platform – including his support of the National Security Agency’s domestic spying program, his vote in favor of a massive new internet tax, his interventionist warmongering in Syria and of course his support of U.S. President Barack Obama’s radical enviro-liberal agenda.
