… HE WANTS HIM TO BE PRESIDENT
It’s been difficult tracking the “whack-a-mole-esque” presidential inclinations of Lindsey Graham – arguably America’s most liberal “Republican” Senator. Graham had his own presidential campaign for awhile … but it ended poorly. Then he endorsed the bid of former Florida governor Jeb Bush – which flamed out spectacularly following a dismal fourth-place finish in Graham’s home state of South Carolina.
Graham’s next thoughts on the presidential contest – specifically his views on U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas – came last week during an appearance before the Washington Press Club Foundation.
“If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody would convict you,” he joked.
That comment was broadly panned – in South Carolina and beyond.

In the aftermath of Super Tuesday, though – in which Cruz clearly outperformed “Republican” establishment favorite Marco Rubio in the battle for second place behind GOP frontrunner Donald Trump – Graham is continuing to make it up as he goes along.
(Sort of like he does with America’s foreign policy).
He Graham says “we may be in a position where we’ll have to rally around Ted Cruz as the one person to stop Donald Trump.”

“Lindsey Graham has become a parody,” one prominent national conservative activist told us.
“I think Lindsey Graham is bipolar,” another suggested.
We concur with both assessments … Graham went from wanting to kill Ted Cruz one week to wanting him to be president the next. If that’s not bipolar, we don’t know what is.
