re: Lindsey Graham Working On Resolution Authorizing War Against Iran


I do wonder what happens when the next Republican president when he decides to get frisky in the Middle East. Will the Congressional GOP find its backbone again like they did this time? I hope so; I have my doubts.

Agreed! Unfortunately too many people in SC will vote for him just because of the "R" beside his name. See Mark Sanford. But I will be voting against him, again!!

Lindsey Graham is a tool but I hope

Graham has lost it. He knows he will be Primaried, and apparently, really believes that the Tea Party will find this aggressive war resolution to their liking. BOOOONNNNK!

We've got our oil. Let the frickin Saudis (who bombed the Towers) worry about Iran. Tell China and Russian they can HAVE the oil, if they clean up that mess.

Regardless, Israel will turn that place into GLASS if need be. It's their right, if threatened.

To hell with Graham's desperate grandstanding. Times have changed. New dynamic...no more blood and treasure thrown at that forsaken region.

re: Lindsey Graham Working On Resolution Authorizing War Against Iran


There is zero chance of any Declaration of War against Iran passing either the House or Senate at this point in time. It would take some sort of outrageous act on the part of Iran to persuade enough members to pass such a resolution.

That being said, I don't disagree with Graham that President Obama has mishandled the situation in Syria. I just think it would be incredibly foolish for Congress to give the man who mishandled Syria even greater latitude for dealing with Iran when the consequences are even greater. I understand Graham's desire to add a little muscle to any line President Obama might want to draw with respect to Iran, but it could be done without signing a blank check.

I've never understood how his colleagues consider him an expert on foreign affairs.

I think he had a beer with Joe Biden once. After all, Biden is the one the dems went to in order to bolster barack's foreign affairs cred.

What's that say about barack?

And Graham needs to be run out of Washington next November.

If you have read this board you will see the vast majority of republicans criticizing their party often. You will rarely see a democrat criticize his party. You just want someone to blame for your inability to effectively argue.

I'm starting to believe the fact that they know much more than they're letting on and an all-out war in the ME is certain to occur sooner, rather than later.


Yes, if we start it. Sort of a self fulfilling prophecy, there will be war in thee ME, just give us a resolution to start one and we can make it happen.
