Lindsey Graham says he’s serious about running for the highest office in the land but this has to be a joke right?
The South Carolina Republican signaled his intentions from New Hampshire, where the GOP’s presidential hopefuls congregated this weekend to court voters in the vital primary state.
The problem with Lindsay Graham is he is the guy with one or maybe two tools in the toolbox, like a hammer and pliers. Every problem he sees calls for the same solution, pull on it with the pliers then smack it with the hammer. I can picture the Presidential debate. Press host: Mr. Graham, how would you deal with the problem of chronic unemployment? Lindsay Graham: Attack Iran. I picture something like the battle of the Somme in which waves and waves of our formerly unemployed storm the Iranian positions. We can plant poppies in the field afterwards like the ones they grow over in Afghanistan.
Press Host: Next question Mr. Graham, how would you improve the quality of American schools? Lindsay Graham: Attack Iran …
Press Host: Next question Mr. Graham, how would you deal with global warming? Lindsay Graham: Attack Iran, I mean when we remove their oil from the world market CO2 emissions will plummet.
Press Host: Next question Mr. Graham, this is on foreign policy, how would you respond to Ebola? Lindsay Graham: I would attack Iran.
Press Host: Next question Mr. Graham, this is another on foreign policy, how would you contain China in the South China Sea? LIndsay Graham: I would attack Iran.
