Senator and prospective presidential candidate Lindsey Graham (R-SC) responded to Senator and presidential candidate Rand Paul (R-KY) calling him and Senator John McCain (R-AZ) “lapdogs for President Obama” on Wednesday’s “On the Record” on the Fox News Channel.
“That;d be news to the White House. I have used every word I know to describe this failed foreign policy by Barack Obama. I think it’s failing on multiple fronts. At the end of the day, I like Senator Paul, but of all the people running for president on our side, I think he is the worst possible person to send in the arena to combat Barack Obama’s foreign policy because he has been more wrong than Obama” he stated.
Earlier Graham said that Obama’s foreign policy is “failing on multiple fronts. he’s probably the most ill-prepared person to be commander and chief in the history of the country, most likely. He was a community organizer, and his world view’s that we’re just one of many nations, we’re the glue that holds the world together. If nothing else, you’ve learned over the last six years, when America doesn’t lead, the world falls apart, and it’s dangerous for us.”
Graham added, “the president has no plan to degrade and destroy ISIL in Syria at all, and if you don’t deal with them in Syria, you’ll never fix Iraq. At the end of the day, I think his plan is to do the least amount as possible, put duct tape on the world, and turn this over to the next president. And it’s really sad,” and characterized President Obama’s approach to Iran as “nuts,” and the framework of the US’ deal with Iran as “weak.”
