Lindsey Graham Curiously Mute After CBS Benghazi Story Tanks
Sen. Lindsey Graham has been on TV news a whole lot lately. He's always been on TV way too much to begin with, but recently, he's been much more aggressively ludicrous. Take his On Oct. 12 appearence where he was venting his frustrations over the government shutdown and he said this:
“This is a very frustrated Lindsey Graham,” he added. “Which is a very dangerous thing.”
OMG, run for cover! A dangerous Lindsey Graham is stalking the halls of Congress and he's mad as hell. What a WATB. Of course he did nothing dangerous. I'd enjoy it if he actually did something intelligent, but that would be asking too much. Soon after that rant, he saw Lara Logan's fraudulent 60 Minutes Benghazi story and went ballistic.
Talking Points Memo:
He told CNN's Wolf Blitzer last week that the report filed by CBS News correspondent Lara Logan proved that "the story told by the administration about what happened in Benghazi doesn't have an ounce of truth in it."
Appearing on "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday, Graham said that the discredited witness in the "60 Minutes" report "really does destroy the narrative" on Benghazi.
"Can you imagine if we knew all these things before the election?" Fox host Brian Kilmeade asked Graham during that interview.
"Can you only imagine?" Graham said.
On the heels of the "60 Minutes" report, Graham announced his intention to block every Obama administration appointee until survivors of the Benghazi attack testify before Congress.
Can you imagine? Well, now that that story has been completely debunked, the new book has been shelved and everybody over at 60 Minutes is walking around with egg on their faces, Senator Graham has refused to comment on his silly actions.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) trumpeted the recent "60 Minutes" piece on last year's attack in Benghazi perhaps louder than any other Republican, but he's been mostly silent since CBS News retracted the report on Friday.
After TPM submitted multiple requests for comment, a spokesman for Graham finally responded with an email saying that the senator "will be a guest on CNN State of the Union discussing the latest on Benghazi and the Iranian nuclear program" this Sunday.
Goober Graham should be barred from every mentioning the word Benghazzzzziiiiii! again.
One thing that has been consistant about liberals is that history is slowly changed over time and manipulated. Case in point, many belive today that Nixon started the Vietnam war, old guard democrats that pose as champions for civil rights were actually the biggest segregationist and racists in the south. Clinton and Gore never did a thing concerning "global warming" oops! "climate change during their administration and somehow its all Bushes fault now. In time Benghazi murders will be twisted by liberals to a point where it's absolutely opposite than reality. Devious minds in high places can change perception over time and two male cadets getting married in "west point" is just an outcome of a nation that is lost. Maybe its all predetermined to fail and the country is on a path of self destruction in which we cannot stop. Great nations of the past have walked this same road and are no longer here except for what we find from historians and unearthed tablets. There will always be liberals like Hoozdik.. that will spin the truth because they are "wired" to do so and will do so even to their own demise. Twenty years from now (if we make it that far) there will be college kids that will be taught that the health care lies and Beghazi were all Tea Party issues.
health care lies and Bengazzi were indeed all Bagger issues and remain so. As far as old guard democrats- they all changed their spots to become republicans so that Nixon could go easy on civil rights enforcement (Nixon Southern Strategy) a fact that baggers like you conveniently ignore- and if Vietnam really got going under LBJ its because the republicans wouldn't have let LBJ do it any other way (with the exception of Eisenhower who wouldn't be allowed in the GOP today) --- so yes history is being rewritten!-- by the ignorant rdenceks and baggers
