First Ukraine, then the Bering Strait?
Sen. Lindsey Graham joked Monday that the U.S. might need to watch out for Russian President Vladimir Putin on our own turf if things continue.
I just hope we dont lose Alaska. The more [President Barack] Obama talks to Putin the worse we do, the South Carolina Republican cracked on Kilmeade and Friends on Fox News Radio.
Appearing on the show with his frequent partner in foreign policy, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Graham said the situation in Ukraine is a defining moment for Obama and he needs to rally Europe to stand up to Putin.
[German Chancellor Angela] Merkels the key here. The president has to rally the European nations, the Western European nations, Graham said. [Putin]s a one-trick pony when it comes to the economy. Russias an oil and gas company corruptly run called a country. They have one commodity, they need to sell it as much as Europe needs to buy it.
Both senators agreed that the Obama administration has not been projecting enough strength in the world, and that decisions Obama made about Syria last year, among other issues, led Putin to think he could make a move on Ukraine.
Graham said its time for the hourlong phone conversations between the two leaders to end.

All due respect LINDSEY we got Alaska from case of vodka that how my uncle told me LOL!
Beside I think Deadliest catch crews could kick Vlady a*** if they do that on reality show Deadliest catch hell yeah I watch it
Don’t worry Linda, Sarah’s got your back.
..let’s vote to lose Gramnesty
The USA will still want access to the Ports of LA and San Diego when the locals declare that they would rather not be part of the USA but would rather unite with their brothers to the South. How will we manage that?
Hey Tina Fey - if Russia takes Alaska, Sarah Palin really WILL be able to see Russia from her house.
I just hope we dont lose Alaska
Nope. Kind of scary actually since he is a US Senator saying this for the whole world to see. It may have been meant to be funny but only for those who understand American humor, Putin likely does not. “I just hope we don’t lose Alaska” probably means something different to the Putins of the world.
Like we will America if his amnesty plan goes through?
Lindsey Graham is generally an ass, but this is a moderately humorous joke - there’s no need to pretend he did something wrong here by making it.
"I know it's really gonna upset a lot of gay men, Graham was quoted by the Times," I'm sure hundreds of 'em are gonna be jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge - but I ain't available. I ain't gay. Sorry."
I think the price was about $7.2 million. Called Seward’s folly because it was so much money for a “worthless wilderness.”
That Lindsey, he's a funny guy.
And so it goes in Obama's America. We are reduced to hoping the Germans will step in and bail us out in a standoff with the Russians.
Saying this means he REALLY hopes Putin attacks Alaska. He and his democrat buddies could use it to stay in power.
Alaska, or at least a tiny little part of it, was occupied during WWII. They are very big on remembering that up there, and I”m sure they would not take Russian intrusion sitting down.
