Graham: I would violate
Norquist´s pledge

Politico, by Tim Mak

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/25/2012 10:59:36 AM

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday that he would violate Grover Norquist´s anti-tax pledge for the good of the country by capping deductions -- only if Democrats in turn agree to entitlement reform. "I will violate the pledge for the good of the country -- only if Democrats will do entitlement reform," Graham said ABC´s "This Week," discussing a possible bipartisan compromise to avoid the fiscal cliff. "I will not raise tax rates to do it. I would cap deductions… I think Grover is wrong when it comes to capping deductions and buying down the debt."

Capping deductions is a tax increase you maroon...

I really don´t expect anything else from a RINO.

The real question is how did Norquist, who leads an organization with i bet no more than a few thousand dues paying members, ever get to be in such a powerful position? Who elected this publicity seeker to anything?

I´m not for raising taxes, but the Republicans look ridiculous being dictated to by this punk.

Seriously, Lindey-poo.........

You would trust the Democrats to keep a promise ?

Here´s a game plan you may want to try:

´Entitlement Reform´ first; deductions caps in...oh, about 2-3 years.

... and besides, it´s Lucy and the football all over again. You can bet your life the tax increases will be chiseled into stone. The entitlement reform, well, that will go the way of welfare reform.

I say raise taxes and increase entitlements. The sooner the demolition, the sooner we can rebuild. Let´s stop dragging out the inevitable.

So agree, #5. What kind of "leader" binds himself forever and signs a pledge to a little nobody (or to anybody for that matter) to vote in a certain manner no matter how situations may change or what is best for his constituents and the country may change? Only someone who is thinking of nothing more than his next reelection campaign and is running scared. And I´m not for raising taxes either, but will not vote for anyone who let´s Norquist exert this kind of power over him/her. Why not just elect Norquist as a one member Republican Congresscritter for the party and send these weaklings home.

Graham and McCain, once again, showing that they have NO core principles.
How about a 50. cut in welfare payments, you know, so everyone "pays their fair share" if I must be bit in the butt, so should everyone. Sacrifice is always just for the makers, never for the takers.
We´re "all IN" now..make them feel a little pain.

Wild guess the money raised by higher taxes will be spent and not used to reduce the deficit. Democrats will promise to cut spending in the future but will only agree to cut military spending so nothing will get cut. The msm will blame the Republicans for the oncoming financial deficit cliff we´re going over. So very predictable.

Instead ofthe RNOS in our party conceeding to the Dems again. Why don´t they stand up for the people who put them in there. NO taxes, and Welfare Reform. Not Medicare, what we put into the system for . Notice no one ever tells people on welfare to give their fair share.

Ditto #15. They need to look into Norquists´ moslem connections while they´re at it. And MY Senator, old Meet the Press Saxby, is also up to his old tricks to go along with these two idiots (Mc & Lindsay). Surely there are good conservative candidates who could beat these guys in a primary and still win the general election. The GOP needs to start growing some intelligent, articulate Senate candidates. Now!

If Republicans are interested in making pledges ´´for the good of their country,´´ then all Republican Senatorial candidates should pledge never to mention the words ´´abortion´´ and ´´rape,´´ particularly in the same sentence, and all Republicans in South Carolina should pledge to find an attractive Conservative Republican to oppose Lindsay Graham in his next re-election campaign.

This is kind of interesting here - we have two different kinds of Republican purists here - 1) those that insist they will not vote for a R candidate who does NOT sign the no tax increase pledge ; and 2) those who will never vote for a Republican that commits themselves by signing the pledge. And people wonder why we don´t have more Republicans in office. Hmmmm, well here´s one explanation up there. Why do Republican´s even get into these conversations?

Job opening for another guy in Benghazi...Ask Obama he knows all about it

Off topic...while I may not approve of gay marriage...I do believe gays have no business in elected office unless they are out of the closet?..And if so, serve proudly as you are...
Otherwise their reluctance to stand as gay makes them blackmailable and a national security risk to the country ...where their actions may be dictated..for the same reasons that Petraeus was a national security risk...among other high level government officials

What #15 said and everyone else who agrees with #5, #8, and #11. Enough with the Grover Norquists´! The GOP is beginning to look like demonrats with so many different interest groups telling Congress what to do! Either we elect Conservatives to put things right, or not, but they cannot be bullied by the likes of Norquist.

The Central Park Conservancy, the nonprofit organization that manages the city’s most famous greenspace, is coming out against a proposal backed by Mayor de Blasio to replace the horse-drawn carriages with replica old-time cars.

Shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday, a 19-year-old in a hoodie and baggy jeans was captured on a grainy black-and-white surveillance video urinating into a reservoir that slakes the thirst of Portland, Ore.’s 600,000 or so residents. (Cue the disgusted “Ewwwwwwwws!” right here.) But really, Portland Water Bureau officials, do you have to flush 38 million gallons of potable water for the sake of a cup or two of human urine? That’s how much the bladder comfortably holds, although the bladder in question obviously wasn’t comfortable. We get the fact that Beervana prides itself on its water supply. The water bureau

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff. The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
