Congratulations to South Carolina Senator Lindsay Graham and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. Both are to be commended for their actions last evening.
First, Senator Graham coordinated a dinner meeting between President Barak Obama and some of the South Carolinian’s fellow GOP Senators . The budget and other issues were on the table (excuse the pun) and apparently the conversations went well.
Second, Senator Paul held a 12+ hour filibuster last night that actually involved standing and talking on the floor of the Senate. Regardless of the merits of the issue, the Senator deserves enormous credit for showing the rest of his fellow GOP Senators what a filibuster is supposed to be like…actually talking to other Senators and the public on the issue of concern.
A relatively historic evening.
