When suddenly facing a real challenge to retain your seat & Biden just won your state in a rout...

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the General Discussion forum).

The kinda thing you say when you’re suddenly facing a real challenge to retain your seat and Joe Biden just won your state in a rout.

Lindsey Graham

@LindseyGrahamSC
Congratulations to Joe and Jill Biden, and the entire Biden team, on the well deserved big win in the #SCDemocraticPrimary. Best of luck in the future.
#Socialism goes down hard tonight in South Carolina.

2. Ummm? Lindsey? I hate to break this to ya, but.......

Saying that socialism got defeated in South Carolina is like saying the New York Yankees got badly defeated in last night's game between the Miami Dolphins and the Dallas Cowboys.

Get my drift? No? Well, come to think of it, that's OK, too.

They have Lindsey's tweet here to counteract it.

That's why you ignore them and instead you have to try and figure out which wrist has the concealed knife this time that he is going to try and stab you with in the back if you turn away from him even for a second.

29. Translation,

 

Leningrad Lindsey is regretting his Dissing of the Biden's. He knows full well how the Senate and D.C. works and he is about to be dumped on the garbage pile of meaningless toxic Politicians.

7. I really hope Steyer puts his money in to defeating Graham and McConnell

https://www.politicususa.com/2020/02/29/tom-steyer-calls-lindsey-graham-a-disaster-as-he-suspends-his-campaign.html



snip--"Steyer said, “And let me say this. I, of course, will be supporting — I’ve said from every Democrat is a million times better than trump. Trump is a disaster. And let me say this. I mean, we’re in South Carolina. Lindsey graham’s a disaster. He’s a disaster for the people here. So, of course, I’ll be working on that.”

10. Predictably, Joe Biden is characterized as a "socialist"

And don't blame it all on Trump. The people in control of the Republican party now are the type that considered Eisenhower a socialist for not overturning the New Deal.

13. You're probably right, I think I misread it. However...

...since Joe's a Democrat, if he gets the nomination that's how they'll characterize him. Don't doubt it for a second. They will lean hard on painting the Democrats as the party of gulags and hours-long lines for toilet paper.

But not "getting marching orders straight from the Kremlin". That's a Republican gig now.

15. I did, too. Predictably, ol' Lindsey is doing whatever he can think of

to fulfill his one-and-only mission: getting re-elected. If sucking up to Rump's rump will do it, fine. If sucking up to Biden will do it, Joe better get used to an unfamiliar appendage when he goes to sit down.

24. :) It's okay. That really doesn't sound like the malignant

swamp creature he's morphed into. And can you doubt it'd be painful even if he were still capable?

He has a staff of dozens of very competent aides to handle what he doesn't want to. "Put out a statement sucking up to the fucking (etceteras)." I'm guessing that including the word "socialism" with every mention of a Democrat is a standing order these days.

28. Yes, you may be right. Can picture him and staff

watching Biden, a good and decent man who speaks in a good and kind way, and them thinking - we can't act in our usual nasty negative talking way. People in SC will notice the stark distinction.

But noticing tiny acts if kindness gives me hope. Just like when some of the repukes, you could tell, had a lot of respect for Schiff, even though they couldn't and didn't vote to convict Dipshit.

30. Maybe. But whatever others may feel, I suspect Graham

and those close to him are so hypocritical and committed to the massive lies that prop up their self images, and excuse their massive corruption and genuinely evil deeds, that the last thing they'd want is to contrast themselves with Biden. My own best guess was that they were noting Biden's messages but ascribing their own contemptible, morally bereft attitudes to him. The usual.

It continually amazes me to realize that very powerful people can be just as small and stupid as the most uneducated and dishonest of our rural trumpster neighbors. Living big lives doesn't make little people big.

20. Graham is working very hard

to dig up dirt on Hunter Biden, even opening a special inquiry. He is a two-faced little wimp. I would love to see him lose his seat, finally. What does he do, exactly, apart from kissing tRump's large orange arse?

kissing Biden's ass might work to his advantage!

He must be scared shitless of things going down hard on him come election time.

26. definitely a positve sign but a democratic primary turnout a bit different than the general election

2014, Graham got 673,000 votes
2016, trump got 1,155,389 votes

its all Lindsay to lose if its possible

31. Remember when Graham was called a pilot fish?

Well, he's just hedging his bets now - or maybe he can see that the tide is turning and he's trying to latch onto the next winner.

“People try to analyze Lindsey through the prism of the manifest inconsistencies that exist between things that he used to believe and what he’s doing now,” Schmidt says. “The way to understand him is to look at what’s consistent. And essentially what he is in American politics is what, in the aquatic world, would be a pilot fish: a smaller fish that hovers about a larger predator, like a shark, living off of its detritus. That’s Lindsey. And when he swam around the McCain shark, broadly viewed as a virtuous and good shark, Lindsey took on the patina of virtue. But wherever the apex shark is, you find the Lindsey fish hovering about, and Trump’s the newest shark in the sea. Lindsey has a real draw to power — but he’s found it unattainable on his own merits.”

32. Does he think the Bidens have no memory? He was Joe's friend, until he tried to gut him....

...with lies about Hunter.

Lindsay helped Trump try to gut Joe Biden, using his remaining son. There's no going back from that.
