Lindsey Graham Needs to Get a “Real” Life

Graham Continues to Waste Time

Lindsey Graham, Republican Senator from South Carolina, is good at one thing, “beating a dead horse”.  He wastes a lot of time not doing his job and spends most of it criticizing the President and his administration.

Appearing on “Meet the Press” this morning, he continued discussion about the Benghazi attack.  Enough already!  How many people have to answer the same questions over and over again?  Why doesn’t he make an appointment with the President and ask him any question his black heart desires?  If he wants 100% definitive answers, put on some fatigues and go to Libya and capture the murderers yourself.  These were his comments:

“I don’t think we should allow [John] Brennan to go forward for the CIA directorship, [former Sen. Chuck] Hagel [R-Neb.] to be confirmed secretary of Defense until the White House gives us an accounting,” said Graham on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “Did the White House ever pick up the phone and call anyone in the Libyan government to help these folks?”

Host Bob Shieffer asked him if his intention was to hold up the confirmations, he said, “yes.”  “I’m going to ask my colleagues, just like they did with John Bolton.” said Graham. “No confirmation without information.”

Graham is the type of legislator we need to remove from office.  There’s much work to be done, and he’s not doing it, he never has.  His has always been a distractor by attacking in negative fashion, never offering constructive ideas or policy.

Does he really believe that the President is not thoroughly investigating the embassy attack?  Has Mr. Obama failed as Commander-in-Chief?  No, in fact if Bush had been more assertive instead of rash, if he had engaged in diplomacy with other countries instead of labeling many of them part of “the Axis of Evil”, our country, and the world in general would be safer today.
