    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) returned to the campaign trail this weekend, making seven stops in New Hampshire with his colleague and preferred presidential candidate, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). After the third stop, at an American Legion hall in Hudson, N.H., the two hawkish Republicans sat down for a joint interview about the refugee crisis, the need to send troops to fight the Islamic State, whether the secretary of state should resign, and what the world would look like had voters made McCain president seven years ago. WP: You both mentioned that there are senators who are late-comers to this issue,...

    Thursday on Newsmax TV’s “The Hard Line” with Ed Berliner, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said his rival Donald Trump is a “complete idiot” because he proposed unprecedented surveillance of Muslims, possibly with special IDs identifying them as Muslim. Graham said, “Donald Trump is a complete idiot. All I can tell you is that we are in a religious war. The goal is to win the war. Most people in the faith do not buy what ISIL is selling.

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), 2016 GOP presidential contender, said Monday that it is time for the U.S. to put ground forces in Syria to combat the Islamic State militant group. "I think we have to have a strategy and that entails American boots on the ground along with a coalition force," McCain said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." The well known defense hawks said that simply stopping Syrian refugees from entering the U.S. will not solve the national security threat imposed by IS. The U.S. "can't shut off Syria...

    In the wake of the deadly Paris attacks by ISIS, some GOP presidential candidates such as Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and even Marco Rubio are calling for an end to Syrian refugee resettlement in the U.S. Most of the others have been silent or vague on the issue of Syrian refugees - about 2,000 of whom have already arrived in the U.S. despite warnings from the FBI that it’s impossible to vet their backgrounds. But there is one candidate who is clearly on the record wanting more Syrian Muslims to pour into American cities and towns as "refugees," despite the...

Lindsey Graham said Monday he can’t believe he’s so far behind in the Republican presidential race, with just 1 percent in polls — when Donald Trump is “crazy as hell,” and Ben Carson once “tried to kill someone.” Carson recalled his hot-tempered childhood on “Meet the Press” Sunday, saying he “would go after people with rocks, and bricks and baseball bats and hammers. And . . . when I was 14 I tried to stab someone.” That was too much for Graham, who consistently polls at the bottom of the GOP pack, way behind co-leaders Trump and Carson. “On...

    A new survey released Thursday finds that a slim majority of Oregon Republicans favor Donald Trump for the 2016 GOP presidential primary nomination.

Republican respondents to the poll were asked which GOP candidate they preferred to receive the party nomination. Eighteen percent surveyed supported Trump, followed by 12 percent for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, 11 percent for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and 10 percent...

    One might think that any story about a current presidential candidate’s alleged exaggeration or dishonesty of battle-like experience would warrant at least a mention of perhaps the oddest and most blatant case of all: that of Hillary Clinton, the Democrats’ frontrunner. While running for office in 2008, Clinton incorrectly and repeatedly claimed she faced “sniper fire” on a trip to Bosnia in 1996. She stuck by the false story even after we aired CBS News video showing that no such thing had happened.However, the Post did not deem the Clinton case relevant to its dissection of Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham’s...

    Presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) warned GOP voters against making Donald Trump the Partys nominee for the 2016 election. The man is too doggone mean to be president, Graham complained. It isnt just the fact that hes egregiously insulted mea sitting senator. Hes insulting everyone. Hes insulted immigrant rapists and murderers while completely overlooking the crimes committed by native-born rapists and murderers. Hes insulted the Chinese, implying that their trade policies are unfair. This is no way to build bridges. Perhaps the worst offense is Trumps lack of respect for President Obama, the Senator continued. The President is a...

    CALLING ALL SOUTH CAROLINA FREEPERS: The "low-information" voters do NOT determine the winners of Primaries like they do General Elections. Lindsey Graham and the GOP Establishment will get "down and dirty" in the SC Primary. And, I know he won his Senate Primary in 2014, against some light-weights that no one had ever heard of, but, Graham, and the GOP Establishment, have never come up against men like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. All you SC FReepers need to get organized now. Help Trump and Cruz defeat Lindsey Graham in his home state. What a slap in the face that...

    July 21, 2015Honest Donby BigFurHat Lindsey Graham? The guy’s a fag. You know it and I know it. My fish know it. But who cares? I don’t. But maybe he cares. The guy is gayer than a picnic basket but won’t admit it. That makes him a target for blackmail. Next.Jeb Bush? He’s the Rachel Dolezal of Mexicans. He wants to be Mexican so bad he mows his lawn 3 times a day. When he passes gas it sounds like La Cucaracha. I agree, he should be president… of Mexico. Next.Hillary Clinton? Is she finished with her menopause yet? I...
