Lindsey Graham: 'If We Pander To Hispanics Now, They'll Love Us And We can Elect Jeb Bush In 2016'
I am not making this up:
“I think we are going to have a political breakthrough, that Congress is going to pass immigration reform,” Graham said on NBC's Meet the Press.
He said the Senate will give the reform bill — which currently has a path to citizenship for the nation's 11 million illegal immigrants — overwhelming support.
“I think we are going to get plus 70 votes,” he said. “I've never been more optimistic about it.”
Graham said passing the bill is a political necessity for the GOP.
“If we don't pass immigration reform, if we don't get it off the table in a reasonable, practical way, it doesn't matter who we run in 2016,” he said. “We're in a demographic death spiral as a party."
The only way we can get back in the good graces of the Hispanic community, in my view is pass comprehensive immigration reform.”
Graham said a candidate like former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush could win the White House in 2016 if Republicans back immigration reform.
in order to court 3.5% of the electorate, most of it already located in solid Blue States.
I wonder how the people of South Carolina see this.Do they really want a morally derelict, ignorant cretin who has such contempt for them representing them in the Senate? Lindsey Graham is absolutely crying out to be primaried. And so are a lot of others.
There absolutely no doubt that Graham is channeling the attitude of a certain faction in Congress who have 'Rs' after name. If they push this, whether they're successful or not, I guarantee you that the GOP will never win a national election again and that a new party will arise to take their place.
