Lindsey Graham: Obama “Did a Really Good Job” in Mideast Speech
Weasel Zippers ^ | 2011-05-20

Posted on 05/22/2011 9:19:21 AM PDT by rabscuttle385

(snip)

Shortly after Obama’s speech, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told reporters that he is prepared to go out on a limb for the president to support his plan for investing billions of dollars to spur democracy in the Middle East and North Africa.

“I am willing to take the bruises and stand by Obama to engage countries like Egypt and Tunisia and stay involved in Libya and finish the job in Iraq,” Graham said. “I am willing to take American dollars at a time when we’re flat broke, go back home and suffer the consequences of sending aid to Egypt at a time when South Carolina has 10 percent unemployment because I believe the Egyptian revolution is about a new way of doing business that’s better for us.”

(snip)

“Our friends in Israel are very upset that he only focused on borders,” said the South Carolina Republican. “There are many other aspects of this deal that are being overshadowed.”

But overall, he added, Obama “did a really good job.”

Graham is very consistent on both U.S. and Israeli border issues -— erase them. In Israel it’s called “the right of return,” and in the U.S. it’s called ‘amnesty’. Undoubtedly Lindsey tingles at the very thought it.

How long before the GOP establishment starts talking up Lindsey as a potential contender for the 2012 nomination?

I think you are right to question the source and accuracy

2 sources I googled , The Hill and this link, only mentioned that Graham said 0dumbo made a mistake:
“U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham criticized President Obama’s speech Thursday, saying his call for adhering to the 1967 borders was a major “mistake.”

“Anytime our president singles out an issue, it makes it more difficult, in my view, to have a comprehensive negotiation, so I quite frankly think it was a mistake,” Mr. Graham told reporters Thursday afternoon.
“I think what is a mistake is for us to talk about the borders and land swaps.”

Ya know that’s a pretty good idea. These jerks just aren’t paying attention. Maybe a huge demonstration by tea partiers on their front doorstep would get their attention. Although some like Graham would be too busy listening to their Dem masters, to even notice.

As one commentator said.

One should never listen to what Zero says but what he does.

However on this one I think he REALLY wants Israel destroyed.

Bt Zero’s own words, the world has to back the new? changes in the Arab world, RATHER THAN RELY ON ONE OR TWO LEADERS TO BROKER PEACE.

He just said that he is not even going to consider BiBi part of the solution.

The Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, PLO are the only ones in Zeros mind elegible to broker peace?

Hey Lindsey: don’t forget to wipe your mouth.

I seriously question the intelligence of our friends in both South Carolina and Arizona. You just have to say: “WTF?!?!”

You never know - after all, a few years back, he publicly referred to conservatives as "bigots."

How does this RINO keep getting elected?!? South Carolina is a pretty conservative state! There might be some excuse for this idiot if he were some liberal North Eastern State like Massachusetts. No more excuses South Carolina, next election “primary” Grahmnesty.

I honestly don’t know. I’ve never done anything like that before. Perhaps if you near DC you could contact the local Tea Party and run it by whoever is in charge. If you belong to a Tea Party group near your home then ask at your next meeting.

Graham does suck in more ways than one, but yes I’d like to see independent verification of these quotes. Nevertheless, the sooner Lindsay Grayed Ham is booted for a real conservative, the better off we’ll all be. :)

While they keep c_ck blocking Israel from its own self and private existence, these suspected antisemites seem to try to use that to replant a c_ck on Zero, to no avail, because cement will not stick to a rotten swampy mush column of stinking crap under rain water of mounting debt and crashing economy.

Lindsey, you pathetic fool of a welfarite self serving socialite RINO, you go down that drain too.

We got suckered into voting for Grahamnesty the first time. His reelection was all due to idiot Obama voters, something our state has more of than any time in our history.

I even voted for his Democrat opponent ( a Conservative ) in the last election, something I've never had to do in my life and hope I never have to do again.
