GOTTA MAINTAIN THAT ONE PERCENT STANDING IN THE PRESIDENTIAL POLLS …
|| By FITSNEWS || When Lindsey Graham‘s 2014 reelection to the U.S. Senate was still very much in doubt, he made an overt appeal to the Palmetto State’s social conservative community on the issue of abortion.
Forgotten about that?
Now that Graham’s U.S. Senate seat is secure for the next five years, though, he’s decided to put his Quixotic presidential bid ahead of the needs of the unborn.
Unlike U.S. Senators Ted Cruz of Texas, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Marco Rubio of Florida, Graham will miss this week’s roll call votes in the U.S. Senate aimed at defunding Planned Parenthood – a government-subsidized abortion provider which has recently been busted selling the harvested body parts of unborn babies.
Yeah … that’s happening.
Graham’s argument is that the GOP doesn’t have the sixty votes in needs to overcome a Democratic filibuster of the bill – thus rendering his presence in the chamber moot.
That’s not the point, though … the point is this is his job.
“His record will be tarnished somewhat by his non-attendance,” the website Life News noted.
Despite an uptick in public support for a more interventionist foreign policy, the warmongering Graham is still struggling to clear the one percent threshold in his presidential politicking. Yet he’s going to bail on the one issue he nakedly exploited at the most vulnerable point in his political career?
