Graham Gets his mind right

Graham Gets his mind right

I love Lindsey Graham and think he is one of the smartest Senators in U.S. history.

But his refusal to enthusiastically back the President has infuriated me. The Graham agenda and the Trump agenda are so alike; such an alliance would endlessly benefit him.

But he’s old friends with McCain and McCain can’t see straight when it comes to Trump.

Today, finally, Graham got to the plate and hit a double right over the second baseman’s head, otherwise known as the MSM.

This defense of Trump, his remarks, and even his tone, is right on. If the NK military regime does not believe they are making a BIG mistake, they simply cannot change course on this issue.

This is from Politico, making this kind of a double knee bend.

President Donald Trump’s warning that North Korea will face “fire and fury” from the U.S. should it continue its threatening behavior was “probably necessary,” Sen. Lindsey Graham said Thursday morning, because the strategy adopted by so many of his predecessors has failed.

Trump is “deadly serious” and “very curious” in his approach to North Korea, Graham (R-S.C.) told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt Thursday morning. The lawmaker, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said he has been convinced by his conversations with the president that he will not allow the North Korean regime of Kim Jong Un to obtain a nuclear missile capable of striking the U.S.

“If negotiations fail, he is willing to abandon strategic patience and use preemption. I think he’s there mentally. He’s told me this,” Graham said. “I am 100 percent confident that if president Trump had to use military force to deny the North Koreans the capability to strike America with a nuclear-tipped missile, he would do that. And he’s going to listen to sound military advice, but he’s made a decision in his own mind not to let that happen on his watch.”

Trump’s Tuesday comment, that North Korea “will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen” if it continues to threaten the U.S., rattled tensions across the Pacific, stoking fears of a military action and a potential war on the Korean Peninsula. Such a conflict would imperil hundreds of thousands of South Koreans, Japanese and U.S. military members stationed in the two nations.
