Lindsey Graham Blames President Obama For The Mess That He Helped Cause In Iraq

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 20, 2015 by sheriffali

South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham insisted on Monday that the Iraq War was not a mistake. Appearing on CNN’s “The Situation Room” with Wolf Blitzer, Graham defended the Iraq War. The South Carolina Senator offered vague and tepid criticism of how the war was carried out, but he stood firm in arguing that ousting Saddam Hussein was the right thing to do to stabilize the region.

 

 

Not only did Graham defend President Bush, but he also spun history on its head by saying that Barack Obama was to blame for the mess in Iraq. Senator Graham stated:

 

“At the end of the day, I blame President Obama for the mess in Iraq and Syria, not President Bush.”

 

While many of the other Republican presidential hopefuls are working to disassociate themselves from the Iraq War disaster, Senator Graham is tying his presidential aspirations to that failed policy. The South Carolina Senator fully embraces the worldview of Dick Cheney and other neo-conservative architects of the Iraq War.

 

 

In Graham’s myopic view, military force is almost always the answer to any international question. He has little interest in diplomacy. Instead, he relishes the opportunity to project American military power across the globe, in some sort of real-life, high stakes game of Risk. Graham refuses to acknowledge that the Iraq War was a mistake. He is eager to repeat that mistake, in the unlikely event he ever becomes President.

The 2003 Shock and Awe Gang that got us into Iraq are obsessed with refighting the war!

Haven’t we lost enough of our most valuable assets in Iraq? In excess of 4,500 Deaths; 50,000 Wounded; over 1.7 trillion spent and the same people that got us into this unbelievable tragedy through lies and deception are all over the Television Stations telling us even bigger lies than in 2003, to convince us to do it again!

 

 

The War Mongers in Congress, John McCain, Lindsay Graham, John Boehner, and the other Republicans blocked the 21 Billion Dollar Veterans Bill; Slashed Food Stamps that  help to subsidize our Veterans Income; Refused to extend the Unemployment Insurance that are badly needed by our returning Veterans, and yes, they want to create more Veterans.

 

 

Iraq War is Bush, Cheney and the Gang that couldn’t shoot straight travesty, and as long as the Middle East remains chaotic, it will always be their fault. Press your memory’s rewind button and honestly see if prior to the Iraqi Invasion, the Middle-East was this upside down. There were always problems there for decades but it got severely worst subsequent to Bush’s unintelligent invasion of Iraq.

 

 

“On this week’s five Sunday news shows (CNN’s State of the Union, ABC’s This Week, NBC’s Meet the Press, CBS’ Face the Nation andFox News Sunday) almost all of the guests that were brought on for interviews were white Republican males. When the APreleased the Sunday show guest lineups on Saturday, of the 15 guest slots, only three were filled by Democrats, two of whom are minorities and only one being a woman. However, when the shows were actually broadcast, all three Democrats were relegated to panels. Face the Nation did book another Democrat, former National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, for an interview. Bob Schieffer also had on attorneys David Boies and Ted Olson to discuss their book. Boies is a known Democrat while Olson worked with President George W. Bush.

 

 

Outside of those two exceptions, the rest of the guests featured on Sunday’s shows are all white Republican men. On Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace interviewed Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), who made the most appearances on Sunday shows in 2013 and is on pace to be 2014′s top guest, Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR) and Rep. Tom Price (R-GA). OVer on NBC, the majority of the program was dedicated to an interview with the loser of the 2012 Presidential election, Mitt Romney. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) was listed as a featured guest, but he was instead part of a panel discussion.

 

 

Meanwhile, over on CNN, Dana Bash, filling in for Candy Crowley, interviewed Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), like Rogers, a constant fixture on Sunday shows, and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), who lost to Tea Party challenger David Brat in Tuesday’s Republican primary. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) was listed as a guest by the AP, but ended up being part of a panel. ABC’s This Week also had Cantor on, along with Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX). The show was also hosted by Republican toad Jonathan Karl, rather than normal host George Stephanopoulos Meanwhile, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), another person listed as a guest by the AP, was merely part of the panel. CBS, besides the guests listed above, also featured interviews with Graham and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.” [Politicususa.com]
