Sen. Graham: Obama makes 'Carter look better by the day'

Sen. Graham: Obama makes 'Carter look better by the day' By Rebecca Shabad - 08/30/13 12:04 PM ET

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) offered a scathing criticism of President Obama on Syria, saying he makes “Jimmy Carter look better by the day.”

Graham cast Obama’s strategy on Syria as “unintelligible” and said he had made a huge mistake by withdrawing U.S. forces from Iraq and sending a U.S. ambassador back to Syria.

He also told conservative radio talk show host Mike Gallagher in an interview Friday that he didn’t trust Obama on Syria, and that the administration’s talk of a limited strike won’t solve anything.

“Obama is prescribing an aspirin when we have the get to the root of the problem,” said Graham, who has repeatedly criticized the administration on Syria.

Graham also said he didn’t want to launch a military strike against Syria unless it helped the U.S. with its own national security interests.

“I’m not interested in saving face for Obama,” he said.

Too late to sweet talk me now.

Linda Grahamnesty is like a cheating wife who has finally realized that she has to pay some some attention to her husband to keep him from divorcing her.

Interesting. McCain and Lindsey have been two of the biggest warmongers, but now even Lindsey doesn’t seem to know what to do, if I read this correctly.

Does this mean that McCain is having second thoughts, too?

Sounds like they showed Lindsey his tanking polls (after he and McCain showed up in Egypt lobbying for Al Qaeda).

Lindsey/McCain actually went on Egyptian TV and demanded that Egypt release Al Qaeda (aka “mozz bros”) prisoners from Egyptian prisons.

About 3 seconds later, Egypt and half the USA were calling Lindsey/McCain “traitors” and “terrorist financiers” all over Facebook.

Those guys are basically “employees of Obama” now.

McCain is Obama’s weapons dealer to Al Qaeda.

McTreason doesn’t plan to run again, but Lindsey wants to. Rough when your primary opponent’s calling you a “Community organizer for the Moslem Brotherhood.”

grahamnesty makes Bill Ray’s daughter look like she knows what she is doing. Is for certain grahamnesty doesn’t have a clue. Sometimes Former President Reagan’s eleventh commandment must be broken to state the truth.

Sound conservative for Linda? It is — he/she’s up for reelection this cycle and has already drawn primary opponents. Expect more conservative posturing.

Well good thought Lindsey, but then just about everyone on our side of the isle makes you look worse.  That stardust from McCain has sure worked it's magic on you.

There was another article on FR yesterday detailing McCain's disappointment with the President -- alleging that we still didn't know, for sure, who was responsible for the gas attack and that whatever opportunity there had been to effect the outcome in favor of "good guys" had been lost in the 30 months of indecision.

He seemed to recognize that the rebels were now under the complete control of radical Islamists...

It would appear that, in his indecision and fraudulent belligerence, Dear Leader has lost

Already spending money for the June 10th primary on many, repetitious robocalls. I've got it down pat now: "Hello, this is Senator Lin..." SLAMMM!!!

Graham's obviously an amnesty advocate, but compared to Hollings, he's Barry Goldwater vs George McGovern.

Election day 2014 is getting closer. We're almost at the end of August and Linda needs money, money, money. The frequency and stridency of her emails to me is increasing.

But Linda has gone way too far down the road as a leftist scumbag to turn around now.



And put one of these fine folks in his place:
Nancy Mace Lee Bright Richard Cash

Lindsey’s just a little effeminate RINO pussy. It’s really insulting that she thinks she can make such comments and seem relevant. Is she just that stupid?

I think so.

Carter wasn’t better than anyone. Thank God the great Ronald Reagan whipped that idiot in 1980. Four more years of Carter would have been catastrophic. I feared for my country then and now I fear for it again.

I guess I should have put “/sarc” after my post, the point being being made sardonically that Graham is almost as big of an idiot as Carter.

Graham is an idiot RINO who needs to be thrown out of the senate. That said, he’s not even in the same league of idiocy as Carter and Obama. Those two have set a new standard for incompetence and hatred for America.
