Lindsey Graham digs in on stalling Obama nominees: 'I'm gonna hit you and keep hittin' you'

By Chris Moody, Yahoo! News | The Ticket – 5 hrs ago

South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham does not plan to ease up on his campaign to stall President Barack Obama's national security nominees. On Wednesday, Graham called on Democrats to join him in seeking more information about details surrounding the deadly attack on an American compound in Benghazi, Libya, in September.

"If this was a Republican president, I gauran-damn-tee ya there'd be a lot of Democrats doing a lot more than I'm doing. And you know what? They probably should," Graham said at a Capitol Hill press conference. "I think Democrats had no problem doing that with Bush and, quite frankly, they did the country a service by probing into failures. I'm going to do the same."

Graham has been a vocal opponent of Obama's choice of John Brennan to head the CIA and former Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel to be defense secretary, saying he would vote to continue debating their confirmations in the Senate. Last weekend Graham suggested he would place a "hold" on the nominations—Senate procedure used to stall nominees or legislation—but Majority Leader Harry Reid on Tuesday said he would reject the request.

1. Obama will crush this toad over the next 2 years and then the Baggers will have their way with him.

 

Fuck you eternally, Lindsey Graham.

3. It's time for the Senate to censure Mr. Graham

It takes a majority vote. Tell Mr. McConnell that the choice is either Graham gets publicly taken to the woodshed, or the Senate Rules change to eliminate the filibuster completely.

Watch how fast Graham gets thrown under the bus.

4. Remember when Dems stalled Bush's nominations

Over 9/11 and Iraq? Remember when Graham did too? Yeah, me neither.

5. This must be the very last issue that gets calls in to

Graham's office from his fan club.

8. Probably. In my town, right before the election, there were old people with signs

at major intersections saying "Obama lied, people died" and Romney signs. You could tell they were really excited that the ambassador had died--they finally thought they had something on Obama.

12. "If this was a Republican president, I gauran-damn-tee ya there'd be a lot of Democrats doing a lot

of Democrats doing a lot more than I'm doing."

I'm sorry, but I can't get the type big enough for the sentiment: BULL F*CKING SHIT!!!!

We just had 8 years of NOT DOING EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE DOING (OR WORSE), p*ssy Graham.

You Repugnif*cks have shown that, had the attacks of 9/11/2001 taken place under Al Gore, he would have been ousted by 2002 and pretty much martial law would have been put in place (at the insistence of the "liberally-biased media").

13. Why does Lindsey Graham hate America?

He clearly has his own agenda and does not have the nation's best interests at heart. I don't think I can ever take him seriously again.
