Sen. Lindsey Graham epitomizes what is wrong with our government. On Fox News Sunday this morning Sen. Graham said that he might vote to ratify Chuck Hagel's nomination to be Secretary of State. One of the reasons he gave is that he gives "much deference" to the president.
Why does Sen. Graham give "much deference" to the president? Did the president nominate him? Elect him? No, he didn't. He can't. So, why would Sen. Graham give any amount of deference to the preident? Sen. Graham was elected by the people of his state. Why isn't Sen. Graham giving those people all of that deference?
I plan to call Sen. Graham's office tomorrow morning and ask that very question.
Sen. Graham's Washington phone # is 202-224-5972. I hope you will call and ask that question too.
