Lindsey Graham: Obama was ‘compelling’
Politico ^ | 09/10/2013 | James Arkin

Sen. Lindsey Graham said Tuesday night that he thought President Obama made a “compelling” case for U.S. military action in Syria in his address to the nation.

“I thought the moral case was very persuasive quite frankly and compelling, and that was what I remember most about the speech,” Graham said on CNN shortly after Obama spoke.

Graham, who has been outspoken in his support of U.S. action in Syria, said the president may have changed a few minds in Congress with the address from the White House.

“I think he probably stopped some Democratic bleeding,” Graham said. Asked if Obama’s speech did enough, he added, “Maybe. I mean right now, I don’t know what the vote totals on the Democratic side, but we could probably muster double digits on our side at best. But this is a process. This is the first step. If it’s 50-47, that’s progress.”

Graham also said he thought the U.S. should take some form of military action in Syria if diplomatic solutions that have surfaced prove unsuccessful.

Nothing good could come of ANY use of our military by this government.

~~~Lindsey Graham: Obama was ‘compelling’~~~

I’ll bet he was for you, LG, I’ll bet he was.

In regards to both of them, Rule 1, 3, 5 and 7.

Lindsey Graham needs to go and along with his sidekick, that RINO McCain, both of whom shill for the DemoRATS whenever they get a chance. Enough of the bootlicking already.

0bama, “I am the smartest man in the world.”

Graham, “This is compelling. He sure is a lot smarter than me.”

Note to Sen. Lindsay Graham: Obama was as “compelling” as a case of hemorrhoids. Lindsay, you are a complete and utter putz.

TRANSLATION: 0bama had evidence collected by the NSA on me [Lindsey] that was very "damning" and isn't afraid to use it.

At least his PR people were smart enough to scratch out "Dreamy" and replace it with "Compelling".
