Robert Graham asks Republicans to work for…pancakes

After vindictively pulling the plug on the new Maricopa County Republican headquarters, AZ GOP Chairman Robert Graham is sprucing up the state party digs. 

In a “Quick favor” email addressed to “Fellow Republicans,” comes this gem:

We need help with some early morning landscaping at the 24th St headquarters this Saturday (Aug 1). We’ve already painted the building and put up new signage but have a lot of gravel to spread and some holes to dig for new plants. We’ll get started at 6 am and have some pancakes when we’re done. We’ll have extra yard tools but if you have a rake or shovel please bring them.

The flyer can be seen here.

Given Graham’s recent underhanded dealings with the Maricopa County GOP, it’s doubtful many hardworking conservatives, who have felt the back of his hand far too often, will be volunteering their time.

Graham’s been spreading a lot more than gravel lately and digging holes in the party infrastructure big enough to drive John McCain’s infamous “Straight Talk” Express through.

    Might be worth attending—Rumor is–Chairman Graham has personally committed to providing the fertilizer for this project.

  2. State Delegate says:

    This battle Robert Graham is waging with Maricopa County GOP chairman Tyler Bowyer gained momentum when Bowyer hosted Donald Trump’s appearance in Phoenix. It drew such an enormous crowd it had to be moved to the Phoenix Convention Center to accommodate the thousands who signed up for tickets.

    Sens. McCain and Flake warned Bowyer against hosting Trump and were furious when he didn’t meekly comply with their wishes. Both of them are amnesty/open borders guys. Trump is raising the issue of the illegal invasion of our country and winning praise for addressing it.

    Establishment guy Jeb Bush’s numbers are sinking. Bush said illegals flooding our country are engaged in “an act of love.”
    Meanwhile Trump’s polling number have sky rocketed. The most recent polling released today shows him up over Bush by 12 points. That’s not the way the political kingpins envisioned it. But it does prove that the issue of illegal immigration resonates throughout the country as much as it does in Arizona.

    Robert Graham has plenty of work to do repairing the damage he’s done to the Republican Party here in Arizona. The rehab of the headquarters is not a priority. Besides mending the fences he’s broken down, he has elections to concentrate on. He needs to get his priorities in order. Who’s he trying to impress?

  4. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Seeing as how Robert Graham is working for John McCain’s reelection – why not have McCain’s landscapers who toil at his eight homes contribute their time? Conservatives, who have been unceremoniously dumped from the party, have no reason to do a “quick favor” for a group that works against them.

    Conservatives have no time or money for Robert McGraham and his band of thieves. What he has done will hurt McCain – we can only hope it will mean his defeat. Wherever McCain is involved, you can count on vicious behavior from his henchmen.

    It’s heartening that Donald Trump’s polling has not been hurt since his comment on McCain. People care about the border. Nobody gives a rat’s patooty about McCain anymore.

      You’ve got that right! Graham is absolutely doing McCain’s dirty work for him by deceptively toiling to keep the primary elections open to the non-Republican cross over voters McCain needs to win. Conservatives despise John McCain, which is why he was censured by elected party officers at the state GOP meeting. His entire DC career has been a series of leftward lurches. He needs to go! Join me in supporting Dr. Kelli Ward.

    I’m a principled conservative. If I lifted a finger to help Robert Graham, I’d probably end up choking on the pancake. I answer to a higher power than Robert Graham.

    Off Topic, but this is Alarming:

    “During a speech to the African Union today (July 28, 2015), President Obama told the leaders there that he could probably run for a third term as president and win – even though it is against the law in America.

    “I actually think I’m a pretty good president,” he said. “I think if I ran, I could win. But I can’t.”

    Obama added that he had a lot ideas he wanted to do to “keep America moving,” but that “the law is the law, and no one person is above the law, not even the president.”. . . . . . . .

    It’s On: Rep. Mark Meadows Makes Move To Unseat John Boehner As Speaker Immediately

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/07/28/its-on-rep-mark-meadows-makes-move-to-unseat-john-boehner-as-speaker-immediately/Yet another rebellion against Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)

    is brewing among Republicans in the House of Representatives, and has now burst into public view.
    Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC)

    has filed a motion aimed at unseating Boehner immediately as Speaker of the House.

    “Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) has filed a motion to try to force Speaker John Boehner from his leadership post,” Politico wrote in a breaking news alert. “The move, called a motion to vacate the chair, represents a new level of opposition to GOP leadership from the conservative wing of the House Republican Conference. The motion can be postponed for several days before consideration.”

    It’s unclear if this will be successful, but over the past few years there have been two major coup attempts at Boehner. Both were unsuccessful—but extraordinarily close to succeeding—and centered around plays at the beginning of this Congress and the beginning of the last Congress.

    This move will focus on centering around a different strategy, and it all comes after Boehner’s leadership team unsuccessfully attempted retaliation against Meadows for opposing Obamatrade. They had tried to pull a subcommittee chairmanship from Meadows—and did so, but then reversed themselves under enormous pressure from the GOP conference and the American people, turning Meadows into a conservative movement hero of sorts.

    Boehner’s office has not immediately responded to a request for comment but conservative movement stalwarts including nationally syndicated radio host Mark Levin have called for his ouster in recent days.

    Meadows is a highly respected conservative member of the House and is intricately involved in the House Freedom Caucus. He’s plugged in party-wide, and wouldn’t be doing this if he didn’t think it could be successful.

      This is a move that should be done to little Robbie mcgraham

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      Boehner – the Orange Cheeto as he’s called on the Internet – cried on the Golf channel the other day. There is something seriously wrong there. He’s always crying. I don’t think he’s up to the job. There’s nothing that I would like to see more than Boehner be sent packing. Look at how spineless he’s been – and how he punishes Conservatives who don’t go along with he and Obama. He’s a really pathetic man at this point.

      • Doc says:

        Your words for oboehner are very eloquently put. I personally sent him a letter some years back calling him a coward who should bow his head in shame, leave the hallowed halls of Congress, & never darken those doors again. This was right after his golf game with his master, o-bow-mao. mcGraham-cracker is exactly the same only his master is mcStain…who’s connected to o-bow-mao @ th’ hip. AGAIN, the amount of restraint I’m using here is Monumental….

    Graham is doing more to undermine and divide the party than any outsider could possibly do. He’s the enemy within the gates. Those of us who voted for him were deceived by an ambitious establishment slickster.
