Fox News Host Tells Voters Not to Vote for GOP Senate Candidate

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs isn’t a big fan of South Carolina GOP Senator Lindsey Graham.

On his show “Lou Dobbs Tonight”, Dobbs said, “well just to be clear I don’t know why anyone of the great state of South Carolina would ever vote for Lindsey Graham.”

“It’s just outrageous. This is the guy who keeps saying stay tuned,” Dobbs lamented. He said he was going to get to the bottom of Obamagate with the Judiciary committee which has been a year and a half – actually longer – of absolute inert, inert response to these pressing issues of our day.”

Dobbs then quoted what President Trump said about Lindsey Graham in 2016:

“I think Lindsey Graham is a disgrace, and I think you have one of the worst representatives of any representative in the United States…I don’t think he could run for dog catcher and win again. I really don’t. Other than that, I think he’s wonderful…He’s one of the dumbest human beings I’ve ever seen…The guy is a nut job.”

Dobbs prefaced Trump’s quote by saying, “I believe the President’s words about the Senator then apply today.”

Dobbs also stated he believed Graham has betrayed Trump “at almost every turn” in addition to betraying the American people and his oath of office.

“He has done absolutely nothing to investigate Obamagate except to tell everyone to stay tuned time and time again. Stay tuned,” Dobbs continued.

“Senator Graham needs to be tuned out in South Carolina,” Dobbs concluded.

You can see Dobbs remarks here:

Dobbs’s comments are something Democrats could turn into a powerful ad heading into Graham’s contentious reelection.

Graham is locked into a tight race against former South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Jamie Harrison. A recent poll from Morning Consult on October 22nd show Harrison leading Graham by 2 points. Most of the other recent polls show the race within a single point, but an outlier poll from Siena College and the New York Times show Graham leading by 6.

McCain was one of the worse Navy pilot’s ever…crashing three jet fighter’s…one of which he crashed on the deck of a carrier…almost setting off all the bombs he was carrying…His last crash was over enemy territory where he was captured by the Viet Cong…this is how he injured his shoulder…Being an Admiral’s son he was given preferential treatment by his capturer’s the Viet Cong.

That is what I am trying to find out.What is his and all the others jobs? If all they do is set around and talk about how to spend out tax money and make laws we must follow (but not them); why do we need them? If one man can demand how they will vote (or one woman in the House) why do we need to pay all these people to do what?

I totally and completely agree. Linsey Graham has betrayed President Trump many times and he has done so using several “back-stabbing methods!” Now, with that said, we also cannot afford to have him replaced with a Democrat. We all know their agenda and we cannot afford to lose a seat in the Senate. Should a new Republican emerge to take Linsey’s seat I would be the first to support them and kick in money for their campaign efforts. Graham has proven to be a RINO extraordinaire and his major accomplishments have primarily been to cover his own ass!

No, unfortunately he is the lesser of two evils. One thing that everyone seems to be avoiding is his anti-2nd Amendment attitude for several prior elections and his active “Red Flag Act” support. He is another Republican Rhino like Collins. Hopefully, the next election will bring forth a
new, honest Republican candidate we can rely on and be proud of.

The time is clean house of RINOS is during the mid terms and not during a general election, unless we have healthy majorities. As I’ve said it before, our side never learns from their opponents. They STICK TOGETHER, ALWAYS! The problem sometimes is that people complain about a certain member of Congress, but then they won’t vote or support the challenger. Name recognition goes a long way. But, in Graham’s case, I hope and pray he’s reelected.

It is very difficult to be in the public forum and not make seemingly contradictory comments, or forget, or mis-speak, or skip, or slip with a cuss word. It is impossible to speak perfectly 100% of the time, unless you are Jesus Christ. And, it is impossible to step up to that level, we being fully human!

This race is akin to the 2008 Obama vs McCain race. Neither candidate was worthy of the office and Obama was an outright disaster. The time to get rid of Lindsey Grahamnesty was in the primary. And if anybody believes Jamie Harrison would be more supportive than Grahamnesty of President Trump or conservative causes, they’re sadly mistaken. And a win for Harrison might tip the majority in the Senate from Republican to Democrat or at least dilute the power of the Republican majority. No, Graham is much less of an evil than Harrison.
