Sen. Lindsey Graham has a wonderful background in the military. He has the experience to be a wonderful leader and a statesman. But Graham has chosen instead to be a cheap politician who fills our airwaves and TV stations with vitriol and nasty statements about our president. Graham has traveled the path of a politico who utters "Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi" and taints the names of four brave men who died there in the service of the United States of America.
A statesman would work in the Senate to find out what happened there and how we might have done better as a country rather than using the tragedy as an excuse to ask where the president and secretary of state were and what they were doing at the time of the attack -- as if Obama should have rushed to the scene with an automatic weapon to protect U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and his staff.
Consider being a statesman, Sen. Graham. Work with the president for the good of our country. You can make yourself proud, and you can make South Carolinians proud that you represent us in Washington.
Never miss a local story.
