Sen. Lindsey Graham Supports Obama While Slamming McChrystal And Staff
Mediaite.com ^ | 06/23/2010 | Colby Hall

Now that President Obama has decided to accept General McChrystal’s resignation (replacing him in command with General David Petraeus), the political fallout from this entire story is starting to reveal itself. And today’s emotional comment by Senator Lindsay Graham (R – SC) might be an indication that some on the right see this story as transcending traditional political tropes.

Graham, who currently serves as a senior instructor at the Air Force JAG school, harshly criticizes McChrystal and his staff for their lack of judgment in speaking so candidly with a Rolling Stone reporter, and also openly asks if there may be further inquiry into other officer’s comments which he clearly viewed as insubordinate.

Graham was also overheard saying that he thinks Obama is "dreamy", and that Michelle doesn't deserve that hunk of chocolate thunder.

"Senator Lindsy ‘Light in the Loafers” Graham."

I probably should make it clear that my comment was fictionalized sarcasm. Graham didn't really say that, at least in public and in a way that anyone could here.

Graham is on the right? Who knew, must be the same propagandists that started calling the free states red and the socialist states blue.

I guess Graham will be really pissed when the Army puts Hussein, Biden, Pelosi, and the commie “Congressional Progressive Caucus” on a plane to Venezuela and institutes a provisional military government for 6 months, then rescinds all Constitutional amendments except the Bill of Rights, and then holds new elections, no incumbents need apply and only INCOME tax payers and veterans should bother showing up to vote, because no one else will be allowed.

And legalizes DUELING within the DC limits.

LIttle Lyndsey Graham is just lucky that his seat is not up for re-election with the mood of SC voters this year.

The same thing could be said about office-holders in many states...including California. Work to cleanup the mess in California first, then lambast us in SC when you have finished.

As I’ve written on FR previously, crossover Democrats elected Linseed in 2008. Conservatives went out of our way to not vote for him accidentally.

This is a low point, in my view, for the Armed Forces in a very long time. And I am glad the president made this decision. And some other officers need to be looked at.

The past, almost eight years, has been an historical low point of representation for the state of South Carolina in the US Senate. You might think this character is a third senator from NY the way he carries on. What a pity SC didn't correct their serious mistake in 2008.

That whole hysterical display by Graham was for him to show he was a tough military man (who never fought a day in his life and saw action only behind a desk.) A man who will never be a general taking shots at one who did.

Graham needs to go. He is the most corrupt individual in the US Congress, which is a pretty strong statement.

Senator Lindsy ‘Light in the Loafers” Graham.

Was the "Dreamy King" ("Very Light In The Loafers") Grahamnesty holding hands with McNuts? Were the two 'boys' planning their new amnesty campaign?

I doubt LG will return to live in SC after he is voted out in 2014, regardless what the current SC powers-that-be want. He doesn’t seem to show his face in the Upstate very often these days.

Graham can arm wrestle Larry Sinclair for an overnight in the Lincoln bedroom with Obama.

The Senator never misses an opportunity to demonstrate how big a POS he is. Them media always seem to be there to record every such occasion.

Unfortunately, even FoxNews broadcasts this crap.
