Lindsey Graham Is In …

|| By FITSNEWS || Despite polls showing him barely registering as a blip on the national radar – and with an overwhelming majority of voters in his home state rebuking his candidacy – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham nonetheless announced his intention to seek the presidency in 2016.

“I’ve got one simple message,” Graham said, speaking from his hometown of Central, S.C. “I have more experience with our national security than any other candidate in this race. That includes you, Hillary.”

Experience, yes … but success?  That’s proven elusive …

Oh, and when it comes to Graham’s “experience,” well … we suspect that might become an issue in the unlikely event his candidacy ever gains any traction.

Also, haven’t Graham and Hillary Clinton been on the same side of the interventionist coin lately? In fact weren’t they both in agreement dating back to 2003, when they backed former U.S. president George W. Bush‘s ill-fated Iraq War?

Graham’s entire candidacy is built around the notion of scaremongering against “radical Islam.”  Oh, and securing more funding for failed weapons programs (which he wants to see funded by any means necessary).

“Radical Islam is running wild,” Graham said. “They have more safe havens, more money, more weapons and more capability to strike our homeland than any time since 9/11.  They are large, they are rich, and they’re entrenched.”

Seems to us that statement is a compelling indictment of Graham’s interventionist policies … especially the ones which led to the creation of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (a.k.a. ISIS, the new bogeyman in our second “War on Terror”).

In addition to his warmongering abroad, Graham is a stout opponent of our individual liberties at home.  In fact he’s called liberty lovers crazy, and made it perfectly clear he would drone Americans in a heartbeat if they even thought of supporting ISIS.

Obviously Graham isn’t going to be president … hell, at the current rate he may not even make the cut to appear in a presidential debate.  But that doesn’t mean his candidacy isn’t extremely dangerous.

Graham joins a field that currently includes retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, former New York governor George Pataki, U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania.

Former Texas governor Rick Perry will join the field this week, and billionaire real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump is expected to announce his candidacy later this month.

Expected to announce their candidates soon are Bush, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, New Jersey governor Chris Christie, Ohio governor John Kasich and Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal.

“I’m gonna bomb brown people all the way up your butt, Hillary”

TroubleBaby June 1, 2015 at 1:36 pm

I’m going to volunteer to do some early campaign work for Lindsey to help his election efforts. I’ll start by offering two campaign slogan’s to kick things off:

“I ain’t gay.”


“Bomb all brown people!”

Nölff June 1, 2015 at 3:03 pm

I’m not gay, bro.

Internet Rule June 1, 2015 at 3:20 pm

Remember, it’s only gay if the balls touch.

Sometimes a slogan will make a super big difference.

LINDSEY GRAHAM IS INSANE (if he thinks he can win this). There, fixed it for you

… and He might just get us all killed.

Manray9 June 1, 2015 at 4:59 pm

He thinks the Republican candidate will win in 2016, so he’s running for SecDef.

RogueElephant June 1, 2015 at 2:01 pm

I just hope he doesn’t screw up our First In The South Republican Primary. Outside SC he is at 1%, which is higher than he deserves. Oh Well, around the bowl and down the hole. LOL

In what? He’s ATFJ – Another Target For Jeb. Hey, if we got McCain and Flake to run, we’d all all Four Amnesty Senators.

who is the bigger fool, Lindsey or the people of South Carolina that voted for him?

... June 1, 2015 at 2:16 pm

But neither are bigger than you

RogueElephant June 1, 2015 at 3:21 pm

Can’t spell “Lindsey Graham” without “Gay Man Lies”.

Oh, sweet Jeebus … can you imagine how that whiney fag hillbilly accent will sound to the folks who live up North? I mean, we’re used to it, but he gonna come off as a total redneck
to them. Thanks for making us look like hayseeds, Lindsay

Not Lindsey June 1, 2015 at 4:00 pm

Talked to a national media guy at the announcement. He seemed rather surprised that people there were actual supporters of Graham. I told him to not believe everything he sees on the internet, though y’all are good for a laugh.

Graham probably doesn’t have enough support to contend, but to pretend he doesn’t have any support is just silly.

Sharing Laughs June 1, 2015 at 4:12 pm

This jerk Graham is always good for a few laughs. Amazing how delusional he is. But that’s ok. Its his world of make believe and fantasy; and not the real one. All across the internet, tens of millions think he is a joke and a psycho. And its a no brainer as to why. Just look at his history. And that ad of his about raising his sister while he was attending college? Its bullshit. He was in college, alright. Yeah … he had plenty of time to cook, clean the house, do laundry, shop for groceries, mow the lawn, paint the house, take out the garbage, etc, and raise his sister. And he has no children to his name. Never married. And he is 59, has no girlfriends, gets none from women (unless he hires prostitutes)? He is a strange one, indeed.

Torch June 1, 2015 at 4:38 pm

He won’t even win the SC primary.

Well, great. His personal ambitions supercede his obligations as our US Senator. Resign!

Manray9 June 1, 2015 at 4:53 pm

Oh, Lindsey…You’re so butch!

vicupstate June 1, 2015 at 5:43 pm

While Democrats and Independents hate his warmongering, he is the officeholder most sympathetic to our side. When push comes to shove, he can be counted on to come through for us.

If he can get a good turnout of Democrats and Independents for the SC primary, then he could pull out a plurality win over a large and divided field.

Could play a lot of mischief with our open primaries.

There is obviously a major groundswell for Pataki in South Carolina.

Scooter June 1, 2015 at 8:28 pm

I agree with Graham on a lot of things but I don’t want to hear about him being the recipient of a bronze star. I’ll bet that he could not field strip an old M1 or 30 cal. machine gun.

Asstounded June 1, 2015 at 8:41 pm

Linda Graham is in… love with himself. Bless his heart.
