Lindsey Graham to Romney: GOP is in a ‘death spiral’ so ‘stop digging’ (VIDEO)

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Sunday pleaded with former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to “stop digging” by insulting Hispanic voters because the party was already in a “death spiral.”

In a conference call with donors last week, Romney suggested that he lost his bid for the White House because president Barack Obama bribed Hispanics, African-Americans, women and youth voters with “gifts” like “free health care” and “amnesty for children of illegals.”

“We’re in a big hole [and] we’re not getting out of it by comments like that,” Graham told NBC’s David Gregory on Sunday. “When you’re in a hole, stop digging. He keeps digging.”

The senior senator from South Carolina added that Hispanics only voted for Obama because “he’s the lesser of two evils.”

“Self deportation being pushed by Mitt Romney hurt our chances,” he explained. “We’re in a death spiral with Hispanic voters because of rhetoric around immigration and candidate Romney in the primary dug the hole deeper.”

Graham concluded: “Most people who are on public assistance don’t have a character flaw, they just have a tough life.”

Graham needs to STFU on Benghazi too then.

I don't want the GOP to have hindsight; I don't want them to become self-aware and figure out where they went wrong. Even though the party if full of bigots, fundies, greedmeisters and loons, they are scrappy motherfuckers and will fight to the bitter end to win.

In the next go around, they will have duly noted what they Dems did, offer that as their platform and then when elected pull the ol' wolf in sheep's clothing bit.

Now it's quite something for a Republican to admit their candidate is "evil" even if less than the other guy. Fortunately, this assessment could not be wronger and it's just further indication of how out of touch they are. Keep believing whatever it is about Hispanics you want.

I don't take advice from nancy boys, Lindsey.

Interesting that he calls him "candidate Romney" instead of "Governor Romney."

And Sen. "Sheilah" Graham knows from big holes, I'm sure.

Everybody keeps saying this is an open secret. He's routinely called "Miss Lindsey" on other sites. So why hasn't this Rethug hypocrite been outed?

R11, it's the same situation involving Aaron Schock & Mark Kirk, I guess.

No one ever wants to take that final step of turning the rumor into proof.

I'm not sure what this means. That proof already exists and they protect each other or that it will take investigative footwork to turn it up?

That has to be the first time he's ever said that.

The only party Sen. Graham should concern himself with is his "coming out."
