Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) sure likes to talk a big game, and he enjoys some good air time as much as any Tinseltown buffoon. Does it mean anything anymore, or is it all senseless hyperbole? On Monday, Graham expressed his frustration with the Biden regime’s handling of Afghanistan on Newsmax TV with host Eric Bolling.
When Bolling suggested that the Taliban have feigned an interest in the past at negotiating with adversaries like the U.S., Graham declared, “This is a bunch of bulls***. So I just wanted to tell you. I hope we kill all these guys. There will be an armed resistance formed in Afghanistan. The Taliban are hated by the Afghan people. They’re going to be pushed back and we need to empower that pushback.”
Sure, Graham’s style is well-documented. After all, he’s been on the taxpayer dole at the federal level since 1995.
“I don’t know how to put this, but, I’m kind of a big deal. People know me.”
Indeed, the country witnessed him laying into his Democrat colleagues on the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2018, as they attempted to ruin the life of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh based on allegations that were never substantiated (and the jury – no pun intended – is still out on him as well as Coney Barrett and Gorsuch when it comes to their constitutional deference and conservatism.)
But what’s more, his latest bid for some web clicks and retweets sounds a bit too eerily like the remarks of former President George. W. Bush when he addressed a joint session of Congress and the nation, just days after the terrorist attacks of 9/11:
“Our war on terror begins with Al Qaeda, but it does not end there.”
“It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated.”
“These measures are essential. The only way to defeat terrorism as a threat to our way of life is to stop it, eliminate it and destroy it where it grows.”
Sen. Graham might do well to pause and assess how well that mission is going today.
Just look at all the fans he keeps collecting:
So you ARE in favor of the U.S. staying in Afghanistan, FOREVER being their babysitters & protectors, even when the Afghan leaders & Afghan Army turn tail & run.

How did President Biden “alone” create this situation?
There is blame all around.
But are you seriously arguing there was no effect of:
– giving legitimacy to Taliban?
– negotiating without Afghan gov’t involvement?
– release of Taliban prisoners?
Don’t be disingenuous.
