Tea Party activists are expected to pack into the North Charleston City Hall today to hear from a man that’s not been a fan-favorite of the group.
I do reach across the aisle. I’m gonna do what I think is best for Conservatism and governing the country and fixing problems. I’m not going to yell slogans for the rest of my life. I would like to get this country back in business.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham has been accused of switching party lines on issues such as immigration and energy reform. Today, he defended that:
The truth is if you go down the Tea Party agenda about what they want, I’m gonna be with them about 80 to 90 percent of the time, and I just want to let them hear that from me and ask me questions. We can focus on the 10 percent of the time that we disagree, that will be fine, but I want to let them know that their anger is understandable.
Graham says he also plans on speaking to activists about foreign policy:
How do you win this war on terror and what kind of programs and policies do you have in place? You don’t give the terrorists the same constitutional rights as American citizens. You don’t read them their Miranda rights.
Graham will discuss his positions and voting about Tea Party issues at the North Charleston City Hall. Guests had to sign up on-line to attend.
