    Not that it matters to you, but the numbers in this presentation don’t work out.

    More importantly Lindsey Graham demonstrated this morning why Republicans have no moral authority when it comes to the budget or the economy.

    Here his comments from “Meet the Press.”

    GREGORY: And yet Senator McCain has given you a hard time. He’s on twitter. Number six on his list of pork barrel spending $950,000 for a convention center in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. You want the president to veto the spending bill?

    GRAHAM: I voted to take all earmarks out but I will come back in the new process and put that back in. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, we’re trying to build an international airport, an international convention center, and open up a new interstate highway to diversify Myrtle Beach’s economy. This came through the Small Business Administration.

    GREGORY: You have 37 earmarks. Do you think they’re more important than other people’s projects?

    GRAHAM: I think I should have the ability as a United States Senator to direct money back to my state as long as it’s transparent and makes sense, yes.

    Government spending is bad unless it’s MY pet projects.
