Lindsey Graham has announced that those killed by remote control drone attacks in America's undeclared wars numbers about 4700. The Senator told the Easley, SC Rotary Club “Sometimes you hit innocent people, and I hate that, but we’re at war, and we’ve taken out some very senior members of Al-Qaeda.”
Did anyone think to ask when Congress declared this war?
It is astonishing that a United States Senator would celebrate the remote control killing of anyone, particularly since he acknowledges that innocent civilians are included in Obama's kill-count. But Senator Graham has a special need to macho-up every six years and pretend that he is a manly conservative. He wants to distract us from those pesky recorded votes and loony-left statements about nationalizing the banks, fingerprinting law-abiding citizens, amnesty for illegal invaders, and his verbal assaults on the TEA Party and Glenn Beck, while "reaching across the aisle to play footsie with Chuck Schumer and the Senate's other liberal Dems.
Sometime between now and November 2014 watch for Grahamnesty, with club in hand, to join in a baby seal hunt.
In another time, Grahamnesty's pre-election posturing and bombast might be seen as amusing. Unfortunately, because of his support for two Marxists on the Supreme Court and an administration intent on destroying and subverting the United States, every day Lindsey Graham remains in the United States Senate is a tragedy and brings shame on all South Carolinians.
