WASHINGTON Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., hailed the death of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi Thursday but chastised Congress for its hesitance to assist anti-Gadhafi Libyan rebels and for criticizing President Barack Obamas use of U.S. military resources to assist in air strikes.
Im very disappointed in Congress, said Graham, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. Congress took an irrational view of the War Powers Act. I guarantee you that a lot Republicans who wanted the War Power Act invoked would not have asked for it to be invoked if President Obama were not president. To me, national security should be as bipartisan as possible.

“You can’t fix stupid”
South Carolina get your poop together and retire the Biden of the GOP ... Puleeze!
Lindsey Graham is a putz, but the title is somewhat misleading. He said alot of Republicans. Whats a lot, 5, 10, 15? He did not say all, or a majority, so this title is, frankly, a lie.
He’s such a little snitch!
Honestly. Is there a better reason to oppose anything he does or says? We know what he is.
He must have put his panties on backwards again this morning.
All I can do is shake my head....
They forgot a few words, he is against it because the president is a psychopathic piece of excrement..following the track record he just correctly assumes that anything the POS POTUS wants must be bad..I’d agree..fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me..
Remember the stated mission was not to topple or kill Godaffi or to take sides with the rebels??
down the memory hole?
They opposed it for reasons that must be painfully obvious now.
It’s called lack of discernible national interest, ya jackwagon!
It’s called not supporting the “Arab Spring” because it will lead to rule by a bunch of Jihadis, you weak-minded little bottle sucker.
I know none of that matters to a fellow socialist.
Sounds like where gettting closer to “what does lindsey have in his closet”
And Graham is stuck on it.
“Hes such a little snitch!”
You should substitue a “b” for the “s” in the last word.
The Tea Party needs to make Ms Lindsey target one (no gun violence intened there, in case anyone from the media is reading) to get his arse out of office!
“Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., hailed the death of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi...”
Apparently the elites now approve the summary executions of unpopular leaders and functionaries during mass civil uprisings.
Perhaps they should be more cautious than to celebrate such precedents.
That man cannot be fixed
Lindsey Graham says GOP opposed Libya mission because Obama was president
And the problem with that is.....?
Look. It’s a simple rule. ANYTHING Zero is for - I’m against.
For what it’s worth I sent the fat girlyguy a nasty gram.
Now, where is the pic of Lynda with the candy curls, ala Scarlett? This thread is screaming for it!
Lindsey: “ I heart sharia”
We need a new rule. Any post about this clown needs to be accompanies by that picture of him with eye makeup on!
What a fag.
True. He’s already a eunuch.
What a maroon
Recall this ahole. And exile him to Sharia Libya.
Lindsey is a worthless homosexual that belongs in the DNC.
Hey Lindsey STFU.
Feel free to switch parties.........
We got rid of a dictator we knew for a bunch of terrorists we don’t know..
Not a real good deal in my book...........
So the Republican Party is actually in favor of using US military resources to help overthrow Gadaffi so Libya’s resouces and military arsenal can be turned over to a bunch of AQ backed muslim “rebels”?
Why do the fools in his state keep reelecting this obvious moron?
Well, what else can you expect from Juan McCain’s boyfriend?
In the first place, this “war” was totally illegal.
In the second place, it was completely against our national interest, and that of Western Civilization.
In the third place, he didn’t even bother to ask congress about it—unlike George Bush, who got their consent for Iraq, altough they pretended he hadn’t.
In the fourth place, it was not even clear who was running it, since Obama shuffled it off on NATO or the UN or something, it’s not clear exactly what.
And finally, as several have already noted, the Republicans have hardly uttered a squeak. Boehner wrote Obama a letter, which as far as I know was never published, and that was it.
The American People are very displeased with Senator Graham.
As time goes on, and we see what happens in Libya, half-wits like Graham will understand why we’ve screwed up there, and with the rest of our democratizing Islam efforts.
No Lindsey. Many of us were opposed because we had a good idea it could lead to another even more radical Muslem state plus a huge stockpile of weapons that are now in more radical hands than before.
I’m sure the dims would welcome you with open arms. Why don’t you make us all happy!
An insult to morons everywhere.
Not only is Lindsey one of the biggest rinos on the planet, he is in favor of Sharia law and the Muslim brotherhood it seems. Please Lindsey.....stfu, please.
"Thank you voters of South Carolina. At last my life has meaning. Let's make fudge."
Miss Lindsey is living in a world of make believe, with flowers, and bells, and leprechauns, and magic frogs with funny little hats.
Let’s say Lindsay is correct that the GOP opposed the Libya mission because Obama was president.
That doesn’t mean their opposition was irrational nor merely political.
If the Commander-in-Chief is a doofus and untrustworthy in both word or deed, if you love this country, you’d better find any way you can to keep him from getting him, and the country, further in over its head.
IOW, if you think the POTUS is incompetent, DOH. You try to keep him out of wars and such as much as possible. This is not being political. It is doing your job to provide a check on dangerous bumblers in the White House.
Graham is not very bright. And your jawboning in this regard is not helpful. In fact, quite the opposite.
Do ya' think he might, periodically, suffer from PMS.
Couldn't pass up the pun...sorry.
Did he and the left also hailed the fact that old Moammar was sodomized with a broom handle? Or did they like the way Gadhafi was shot without a trail?
I have no love for Moammar, but the fact our”Allies” in this civil war has acted like savages and there is little or no outcry is apalling?
How long are the people in South Carolina going to put up with “Light in the Loafers” Lindsay?
