LEE BRIGHT ACCUSES SOCIAL CONSERVATIVE GROUP OF BEING “PRESSURED” BY INCUMBENT

A “debate” of U.S. Senate candidates sponsored by a social conservative organization is drawing fire … from social conservative politicians.

S.C. Sen. Lee Bright – who is slightly to the right of Jesus himself on social issues – is rebuking the Palmetto Family Council (PFC) for allegedly conspiring with the campaign of incumbent U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.) to approve an “over-regulated, sterile and stale format” for its May 30 candidate forum.

According to Bright, the format of the event is “tailored to protect a rich incumbent,” which he claims is “a likely result of the Graham campaign pressuring the PFC.”

“I know these people, like these people, and respect these people,” Bright said in a statement. “I served on their board until 2008. And I appreciate the fact that they’re holding this forum – but I have to say – I’m kind of shocked that they’ve turned a debate into an interview. The format they’ve chosen only guarantees that Senator Graham will not have to confront the criticism he should have to face.”

Billed as a Town Hall, the Palmetto Family Council “debate” will feature seven candidates – six Republicans and one Democrat. Each candidate will get twelve minutes on stage – alone – to offer remarks and respond to questions from the event’s moderator, WIS TV 10 (NBC – Columbia, S.C.) reporter Dawndy Mercer-Plank.

Oran Smith – president of the Palmetto Family Council – defended the event.

“Senator Bright may not be aware that Palmetto Family is following the exact format Jim DeMint chose for his SC presidential event in 2012,” Smith said. “Yes, it will be intimidating alone in the spotlight, but this close to the primary voters want substantive answers, not yet one more bickerfest.”

Or, if you are available Connor may FY. He sure as heck will if elected.

But on the serious side Honor This, didn’t you know that amongst Republicans marital infidelity is no longer considered dishonorable. Its the god given right of every Republican male to cheat on his wife or her husband, so long as the one they are cheating with is of the opposite sex. In fact, I think it has become a relief among Republicans, it means you are probably not gay.

Besides, moral integrity is overrated, right?

How nice of you, fuckface. Place some condoms next to those Connor signs you’re putting up. I would hate it if someone’s love child was spawned by his adulterous fan base.

Do you want a debate, or a “debate” that Graham will actually show up to?

Lee “Bright” is a moron of the highest order if he didn’t see this coming. Graham plays the same game John McCain does, pretend he’s something he’s not when his reelection comes up. This is his go-to strategy, and the group he claims to like probably doesn’t give a shit because they’re more interested in selling worthless $50 seats to a dog and pony show and potentially receiving donations under the table for bending to Graham’s whim.

I doubt Bright actually really wants to debate Graham. Other than possibly repeating Obama bad, Messicans bad, Bible good, guns gooder, I don’t think he has the gray matter to spar with. Graham

Galatians 2:16 Paul said,
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

Too bad none of Graham’s challengers played their cards right. If they had not been stupid enough to ally themselves with the far right idiots of the US Senate they might have had a good chance of winning because voters are ready for a change, but not a one of them got the endorsement of Palin or any of the big name conservative pacs. The majority of American voters are moderates who don’t lean to the far right. Graham will win the primary and win big because the Tea Party is already on its way out. They are desperate in Mississippi right now, pouring money on ads to try to help the candidate endorsed by Palin win the primary. This is their last chance. If they lose it, they will be finished this year because they are out of money. They think they will have a better chance of winning in Mississippi than in South Carolina. Too bad.

The Tea Party is not on it’s way out…..that is the BS that the Democrats and leftist try to put across and if you are spewing that then you are one of them. The Tea Party is backing areas where they think they can win. Lindsey Graham has a lot of money and backing from the CHAMBER OF COMMERCE where he sells his votes!
The TEA PARTY, for those of you who are not savvy, is the GOP! The party that is current running the republican gang of RINOs is not the GOP…..these guys in DC lost their INTEGRITY long ago and have sold their souls and their principals to the moneymen in DC!!!! Which is why our country is going to hell in a hand basket!
They have done little or nothing to stop it and have, like Lindsey Graham leaned a bit too far to the left and are now Democrat Lite!!!! PEOPLE OF SC …YOU NEED TO VOTE HIM OUT!!!! HE IS NOT THE SOLUTION WE NEED TO GET AMERICA BACK ..HE IS PART OF THE PROBLEM AND REASON WHY WE ARE LOSING IT!!!!

HONORABLE CITIZENS OF SOUTH CAROLINA……please do not send this RINO (Obamabot) back to DC to get richer on our country…..he will vote for AMNESTY for 15,000,000 million people because “it is the right thing to do”. He knows that most Americans and most South Carolinians have said no to Amnesty, but he is belligerent and doesn’t care! It doesn’t take a genius to see this. Say NO TO GRAHAM. EVEN IF IT IS A RUNOFF AT LEAST SOMEONE ELSE WILL GET A CHANCE TO REPLACE HIM!!!! VOTE FOR ANYONE BUT HIM….SOMEONE WILL EMERGE WITH ENOUGH POINTS TO RUN AGAINST HIM.
