Sen. Lindsey Graham (Rino-SC) considering run for President
U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (Rino-SC) told Meet the Press host Chuck Todd on Sunday that he is testing the waters for a possible run for President in 2016.
"We're not polling but we set up a testing the waters committee under the IRS code that would allow me to look beyond South Carolina as to whether or not a guy like Lindsey Graham has a viable path.
"I don't know where this will go, but I am definitely going to look at it. I think the world is falling apart, and I've been more right than wrong when it comes to foreign policy but we'll see," Graham said.
Graham also blamed President Obama's policies for the current situation in the Middle East.
"I think his policies are getting people killed. I think sound military advice was given to the President to leave a residual force in Iraq, and he turned it down.
"As a result Iraq has collapsed.
"His entire national security team suggested three or four years ago to create a no-fly zone and train the free Syrian army while it mattered. Three-hundred-thousand people have been killed in Syria on his watch.
"All we're telling the Iranians, if you walk away, sanctions will be reapplied. If you cheat, they will be reimposed.
"I'm willing to forgo sanctions if the President will take any deal he negotiates and brings it to Congress for our approval," Graham said.
