At S.C. GOP Convention, Cue for Applause at Mention of Bush Met with Silence

Jon Ponder | Jun. 3, 2008

There are few states that are more Republican than South Carolina. Just a few years ago, George Bush was the object of a near cult-like worship among the Palmetto State’s GOP true believers.

But during an address to the state GOP convention on Saturday, when Sen. Lindsey Graham — a leading supporter of John McCain — mentioned Bush and waited for the cheers and applause, instead he got, as Keith Olbermann put it on “Countdown” last night … crickets:

Graham used his remarks to embrace President Bush, just hours before he was to meet Bush at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport and accompany him to Furman University for a presidential commencement address that has divided the campus.

At his first mention of Bush’s visit, Graham paused, waiting for applause. When it didn’t come, it took a slight nod from Graham to prompt a round of applause.

“President Bush is my friend,” he continued, “and I’m not going to run away from the friend.”
