Lindsey Graham’s Principled Vote for Brennan – Would Have Voted Against Him But Rand Paul’s Filibuster Made Him Vote For

Just so you know:

Lindsey Graham

Lindsey Graham

Speaking to reporters after he came off the floor Wednesday, Mr. Graham said he defends Mr. Paul’s right to ask questions and seek answers, but said the filibuster has actually pushed him to now support Mr. Brennan.

Mr. Graham said he had been inclined to oppose the nomination because he’d found Brennan to be qualified for the job but also “arrogant, kind of a bit shifty.” He said he wasn’t going to filibuster him but would have voted against him on final passage, but now he’ll vote for him.

“I am going to vote for Brennan now because it’s become a referendum on the drone program,” he said. Source

  • Anne Barnhardt had the SOB figured out a couple years ago,,, nothing’s changed

    • Grumpy, great video – lots of vigor there. I began back in June 2007. He wanted $4.4B for border security but he wanted amnesty to go with it. He worked with McCain/Kennedy for amnesty. In early 2010 he sided with the Democrats on Cap and Trade. There’s also a group ready to blackmail him in his next Senate run – nothing like a compromised Senator. And I’ll never forget that he voted for Elena Kagan.

  • Let me get this straight, Lindsey would have voted against Brennan, really wanted to, but that mean ole nasty Paul had to go and filibuster blowing his whole vote to bits. Oh ya, that is soooooooooo believable!

    • sandstone, I think that’s spot on.
