Alvin Greene Considering Run Against Lindsey Graham in 2014

Alvin Greene - "Couldn't Be Worse Than Lindsey Graham"

Alvin Greene, who received nearly 28% of the vote in his race for U.S. Senate against Jim DeMint, has told The Daily Caller that he is mulling a possible run against Lindsey Graham in 2014. “I would have run against Graham three years ago if I wasn’t in the military,” Greene said.

For the record, we believe it is highly unlikely that Lindsey Graham will ever again be the nominee of the South Carolina Republican Party for the United States Senate. But in the event that South Carolina Republicans are foolish enough to nominate their rogue Senator for a third term, we will enthusiastically back Greene. Even he couldn't be worse than Lindsey Graham.

Alvin Greene, The Face of the Democrat Party in South Carolina

This is painful to watch, but at least this Democrat is American-born and eligible to serve (unless he's convicted on pending obscenity charges).

The Greene Party

An Investors Business Daily Editorial

The Democratic Senate candidate from South Carolina is not a GOP dirty trick but an appropriate representative of a party detached from reality. An incoherent and off-the-wall empty suit, he is a perfect fit.

Late Thursday night, the South Carolina Democratic Party's Executive Committee rejected a protest of the June 8 primary for U.S. Senate, in which Alvin Greene, who has a felony arrest for showing porn to college girls, defeated Vic Rawl, a former state representative and judge.

Greene has been declared the party's legitimate nominee, much to the chagrin of MSNBC's Chris Matthews, whose leg no longer tingles when President Obama speaks, and others.

Matthews asked guests: "Do you think this has the look of a dirty trick — sort of a Watergate number?"

After all, how could a Democratic electorate that put a community organizer in the White House make such a mistake?

Perhaps the best thing that can be said about Alvin Greene, who came out of nowhere to become the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate against incumbent Jim DeMint, just like Barack Obama came out of nowhere to become president, is that Greene almost makes guys like Alan Grayson and Eric Massa look normal and sane.

The Democratic Party is said to be a big tent but a circus tent is more likely.

Case in point — Eric Massa, the New York Democrat who took a wide stance on many issues, known for his alleged policy briefing from White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel in the congressional showers before he, uh, threw in the towel.

Tickle party, anyone?

Then there's Florida's Alan Grayson, the mouth that roared, who produced a chart on the House floor that said the Republican health care plan was for everyone to die quickly as he supported a bill that makes rationing an inevitability. Or there is North Carolina's Bob Etheridge, who roughs up college reporters, while complaining the Tea Party is an angry mob.

The question is not whether Alvin Greene is qualified. The question is compared to whom?

Roland Burris? Do we compare him to the ethically challenged Charlie Rangel who helps writes the nation's tax laws as he plays fast and loose with his own obligations and the law?

Or perhaps we can compare him with Barney Frank who said Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were financially sound right up to the moment he started to blame Republicans and President George W. Bush for the market collapse.

Alvin Greene has no visible means of support and few prospects, sort of like the America the Democrats want to create for all of us. No one knows where Greene got the $10,000 to file.

Well, no one knows where the Democrats will find the funds to unburden our grandchildren whose inheritance they have already spent.

The Democrats are led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who said of health care reform that we'd have to pass the bill to see what was in it.

Sounds like something Alvin Greene might say. We doubt if he'd read any bill he voted on either. He might even agree with Joe Biden that we have to spend our way out of bankruptcy.

Do you think Alvin Greene would support a failed stimulus that adds to the deficit as the unemployment rate rises?

Would he put forth a cap-and-tax climate bill that threatens to drain whatever life remains in the economy?

Would his answer to the Gulf oil spill be to dispatch an army of lawyers to find out who to sue and arrest while the oil continues to gush?

Democrats look with feigned embarrassment at how such a sad joke could become their candidate for the U.S. Senate. They should consider the ranks he would be joining.

The Democrat Double Standard: 'Clean' Marxists vs. Black Vets



It is remarkable to see all this Democrat hand-wringing over the Democrat Senate candidate in South Carolina who won with 60% of the vote. And it illuminates the racism and the "very different strokes" that exist for an affluent, well-connected Marxist who went to all the best schools, and in the words of Joe Biden, "is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," and a poor, not so articulate, military veteran.

Keith Olbermann and Jim Clyburn tell us their party's choice needs to answer questions about his background and where he got the filing fee. The impertinence of the man to think he could run for the United States Senate without receiving their imprimatur!

Where, we ask, are their questions about Barack Obama's background? Where are the questions about what motivates him to spend millions in legal fees to conceal documents that most Americans are required to present when they register to vote or obtain a passport? Why have they not explored the friendship and mentoring by Communist Frank Marshall Davis? Why do they resent anyone asking who paid for Obama's very expensive private and ivy league education? How and why was he admitted to Harvard in the first place? Why did Manhattan Borough President Percy Sutton intervene to get him admitted to Harvard, when Obama did not have grades that were competitive for Harvard? Why are his school and medical records sealed? What explains the array of Social Security numbers Obama has used; none of them issued to residents of Hawaii.These and many other questions about Obama's mysterious past remain unanswered, and those who raise them are ridiculed as "birthers."

We know Obama has a lot to hide, just as there is much we don't yet know about Alvin Greene; but the Democrat Party's double standard reeks of hypocrisy and class discrimination.

If a black man is not part of the radical elite, or is a struggling military vet, he rides in the back of the Democrat Party bus.

USC Co-ed Outraged at Alleged Pursuer's Senate Candidacy


From Fox News
By Cristina Corbin

A South Carolina woman who claims U.S. Senate candidate Alvin Greene showed her pornographic images says she's outraged that he won't step out of the race.

Camille McCoy of Summerville, S.C., a 19-year-old chemistry student at the University of South Carolina, said the 32-year-old Greene approached her inside an on-campus computer lab last October and asked to go to her dorm room after showing her obscene images.

Greene won the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate on Tuesday, stunning party officials and unleashing a flood of questions over his little-known background and self-run, low-budget campaign.

"He solicited her on campus in a secure, limited-access facility," McCoy's mother, Susan, said in an interview Thursday with FoxNews.com.

Greene, meanwhile, has declined to speak about the alleged incident, saying, "I'm innocent until proven guilty."

T
he surprise South Carolina Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate
has turned down a request from the state party boss to step down.

Alvin Greene, a relative unknown, shocked Democrats in the Palmetto State on Tuesday night by winning the chance to face Sen. Jim DeMint, a Republican, this fall with a commanding victory over state lawmaker Vick Rawl in the Democratic primary.

South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Carol Fowler on Wednesday asked Greene to withdraw from the race for U.S. Senate because of recently revealed court records which show the 32-year-old unemployed veteran was arrested last November in Columbia, S.C., for allegedly showing obscene photos to a college student.
