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.

Let's translate this..'I want us to pass an unjust, divisive law that will do nothing to support border control, is fiscally a disaster and will give Democrats a majority for years so that we can totally alienate our party's base, maybe replace 'em with all those new Hispanic voters if we're especially submissive, get rid of the stinkin' Tea Party and run a RINO like Jeb in 2016.' That is exactly what he's saying..that he wants to shed the GOP's base for eternity and do his best to make them politically powerless 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.

I live in South Carolina. I see a sign on a business I occasionally drive past. That sign says "Dump Lindsay Graham." Every time I see that sigh, I think, "Amen!"

How can the people Of South Carolina elect someone as stupid as Graham?

Graham was a disappointment after 1 year. He's one of the best friends a Democrat could ever want along with the rest of the RINOS like Boehner, McConnell, Rubio, Christie, Jeb and the rest. Clean sweep is in order! Can't wait until Flimsey Grahamnesty sends a request for a donation....

You know how a party so incompetent and dishonest as the Democrats is continually able to win elections and push their agenda forward?

Because, though the GOP is only half as dishonest, its 5 times as incompetent.

Men like Lindsay Graham are so stupid that it makes the entire GOP unlikable. I will not be part of a party with elitist idiots like that man.

Is it me, or does the average IQ of these Washington politicians seem to have dropped well below 100. They really are monumentally unintelligent.

To summarize his statement - being elected is more important than principles.

I'm pretty sure that what we're all seeing here is the final stages of the U.S. govt before collapse under the weight of corruption. It doesn't seem to matter which party is in control, they systematically dismantle the Constitution with each new election.

Today at 2:00PM EST, Twitter was flooded with #StopAmnesty hash tags. It was all you could see on their homepage because the American people are still standing united as 1 Nation under God, in spite of what the BOUGHT-AND-PAID-OFF-MEDIA tells us at 6.

Forget political parties, they are all they same (for sale and without morals). This country needs men of honor again in office who have actually read, understand, and live by the list of 10 commandments. What we have now looks *a lot* like the biggest organised crime ring on the planet.
