Lindsey Graham Celebrates Obama's Drone Kills

 “Sometimes you hit innocent people, and I hate that, (but I've got another election coming up!)"

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham  (Reuters/Joshua Roberts)
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.

Yes and I have other reasons as well to be fed up with the likes of him;McCain for one.The Democrats cleverly left it to Repuclicans to give Chuck Hagel a good public dressing down sending a loud and clear signal that he best now know his place and keep it.They got away with the dog and pony show with most.Some though are wise to game and saw right through them.

Chuck Hagel did not look like the bumbleing fool that was reported by some. The senators who put him on the painful spot,asking,badgering him to name names,WHO,WHO is intimidated???!!!..etc.WHAT,WHAT foolish,bad decisions have been made??? On and On with these questions that simply cannot be answered in that Public Forum. It was absurd in the extreme. Mr.Cassidy can you perhaps look at comments at your Post,"Who killed the Middle Class"? If not,I would like to thank you here for responding.

Thank you for posting this bit about Sen Graham (R, Israel). If I needed anything else to learn about him to find him as loathsome as I do, this would be it.

Thanks again.
