Progressive Lindsey Graham accuses GOP of having moved to the “fringe.”

07/05/2010

Leave it to a Progressive to accuse a popular grass roots movement of moving the GOP to the far right fringe.

From Gateway Pundit:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says in a forthcoming article that the tea party movement is “unsustainable” and will “die out” because it lacks vision.

Graham made the comments to The New York Times as part of a profile in Sunday’s magazine written by Robert Draper.

Graham argues throughout the story that the Republican Party will eventually move away from the fringe and join him closer to the political middle but that, for now, it has shifted too far to the right.

“Everything I’m doing now in terms of talking about climate, talking about immigration, talking about Gitmo is completely opposite of where the tea party movement’s at,” Graham says. “The problem with the tea party, I think, is it’s just unsustainable because they can never come up with a coherent vision for governing the country. It will die out.”

Graham later says that the GOP has shifted so far that Ronald Reagan would have trouble getting elected in today’s party.
