PPP: Linsay Graham facing trouble in 2014 re-election bid

(Couldn't happen to a nicer NEOCON.)

52% of them say that given the choice they'd pick a more conservative challenger in the 2014 GOP primary, compared to only 37% who say they'd support Graham under that scenario. It's a pretty simple calculus- Graham leads 47-40 on that question with Republicans who say they don't consider themselves to be members of the Tea Party but he trails 76-18 with folks who identify with that movement. The Tea Party faction of the Republican Party has become more and more powerful since Graham dispatched a relatively weak primary challenger in 2008 and if the fever doesn't die down over the next three years he's going to be in serious trouble in a primary.

One person Graham doesn't have to worry about too much as a potential challenger though is Mark Sanford. Graham leads the former Governor 52-34 in a hypothetical contest, holding an advantage with both moderates and conservatives. It appears that Sanford's personal indiscretions outweigh Graham's ideological indiscretions with the Republican electorate- even among GOP voters 46% say there's no way they'd ever support Sanford for office in the future, compared to just 14% who say they'd be firmly behind him.....

When I was a kid, the mix was slathers of tar & feathers.

Warn't gentlemanly, but sure was fun for us boys to watch. We would run along side, near to the county line. Those run out never returned, sure tell.

Folks knew, rascals needed to be run out of town post haste. No fussing details - no looking for rules - to do the right thing. Just run 'em out'a town. "Get the gone!" Robin Hood would bellow.

The gentleman's political approach:

By 1895, politeness was epidemic. Near everybody came down with it.

"Mind your P's & Q's" polite folk would chide.

From an old printer's axiom, back in the early days of printing presses, the letters were set one at a time. Press was reversed (so they'd print forward), the typographer (typesetter) must "mind his p's and q's" (pay attention to the details).

South Carolina Recall Amendment (2010)
From Ballotpedia

http://ballotpedia.org/wiki/index.php/South_Carolina_Recall_...

South Carolina Recall Amendment did not appear on the November 2, 2010 statewide ballot in South Carolina as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The proposed amendment called for allowing voters to recall elected officials. ...

Summary read:

Proposing an amendment to Article XV of the Constitution of South Carolina, 1895, relating to impeachment of certain executive and judicial officers of this state, by adding Section 4 so as to provide procedures for recalling and removing from public office persons holding public office of the state or its political subdivisions in the executive and legislative branches of state or local government; and proposing an amendment to Article XVII, by adding Section 15 so as to establish a specified procedure for the enactment or repeal of laws and constitutional amendments by initiative petition and referendum and to provide exceptions.

Constitutional changes

According to the House version of the bill, H 2833, follows:

Proposing an amendment to Article XV of the Constitution of South Carolina, 1895, by adding Section 4 so as to provide procedures for recalling and removing a person holding a statewide-elected constitutional office.[1]

Path to the ballot

Section 1 of Article XVI of the South Carolina Constitution says that a legislatively-referred amendment can go on the ballot if approved by a 2/3rds vote of each house of the South Carolina State Legislature.

==========================

Simple quick way:
Tar & feathers. Send boys along for the run to the county line. Politics was never more fun! We all wanted to grow up to be president or a judge or something respected on account.

Move South Sam!!

We need you! :) Bring your tar and feathers because there's no way those puffed up creatons in the SC legislature will ever let recall onto the ballot.

I requested that comments be opened & the video is very hot even today.

I also suggested you could delete the "//youtube.com" link that goes to the "copyright blocked" dead end.

Whether you update it or not, it is a hot topic. Bloomberg has high interest in financial & they have been successful useing Freedom-of-Information Act requests to pry open the Fed 10 trillion dollar foreign bank loans.
