Tuesday at CNN’s Republican under card presidential debate, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said the rise of ISIS was caused by President Barack Obama’s mistakes, not former President George W. Bush.
Graham said, “I would like to stop sending $350 billion overseas to buy oil from people who hate our guts, wouldn’t you? Wouldn’t you like to export natural gas to cut Putin’s legs out from under him? I’m not afraid of a guy riding around in a horse without a shirt. The guys got a pair of twos and we got a full house and he’s walking all over Obama. The surge worked. It worked. George W. Bush made mistakes, but he did adjust. I blame Obama for ISIL. Not Bush. I’m tired of beating on Bush. I miss George W. Bush. I wish you were president right now. We wouldn’t be in this mess. I’m tired of dictators walking all over us. I’m tired of siding with the Iranians and Russians.”
