Graham Threatening Once Again To Take His Toys Home

CNN's headline reads: "Graham move imperils Obama agenda," which is really funny. Graham is threatening not to cooperate on climate change if democrats take up immigration reform (I don't know why they can't do both). CNN's dramatic flair:
In a stunning move that could throw a major roadblock in front of two of President Obama's biggest legislative initiatives, Sen. Lindsey Graham abruptly declared Saturday he's abandoning talks on climate change legislation because he believes Democratic efforts to bring up a separate immigration reform package is undermining the legislative process.

"Moving forward on immigration - in this hurried, panicked manner - is nothing more than a cynical political ploy," the South Carolina Republican wrote in a sharply-worded letter obtained by CNN. cnn
Here Graham is in March, threatening that if healthcare passes, immigration is dead.
That's Lindsey Graham. He's childish in that regard. He doesn't imperil Obama's agenda. But it sure did make for a dramatic headline on CNN's part.
