Lindsey Graham Is “Dangerous”
U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham gave an interview this week in which he described himself as “dangerous.”
“This is a very frustrated Lindsey Graham,” Graham told The Politico. “Which is a very dangerous thing.”
Um, really? That’s tough talk coming from a guy who lied about being a military veteran. A guy who likes to host “Milk and Cookies” events instead of hard liquor happy hours.
Anyway, Graham is upset because he loves cutting deals – and right now there’s no deal to be had on the so-called “shutdown” of the federal government and the ongoing debt ceiling debate (for the latest on these intertwined political sagas, click here).
Why not? Because Barack Obama and Democratic leaders are confronting a divided Republican Party – a fissure created when Graham and his liberal GOP allies in the U.S. Senate refused to stand firm against Obamacare.
