Lindsey Graham Seems To Have Forgotten His Oath

...and maybe that's what happens when these guys get continually re-elected...they go thru the motions, take it all for granted, and forget where the real power lies in America.

When animals in Afghanistan, whipped up by the US-supported President Hamid Karzai reminding them over and over that an obscure pastor in Florida burned a Koran, went on a beheading spree, killing 11 UN staffers, Graham decided to blame his fellow Americans for exercising their freedom of speech, and seemed to imply that it should be curtailed as he, Lindsey Graham, sees fit:

I wish we could find some way to hold people accountable. Free speech is a great idea, but we're in a war. During World War II, you had limits on what you could do if it inspired the enemy.

Let's remind Graham of his oath:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Graham has it backwards. Our enemies are trying to limit our freedom of speech with this type of murderous behavior, and rather than defend Americans and their Constitution, Graham seems willing to accept the Islamic veto upon our First Amendment rights.

Dhimmi. Or is it...dummy? Mark Steyn:

I agree with the Instaprof: Lindsey Graham is unfit for office. The good news is there’s no need for the excitable lads of Mazar e-Sharif to chop his head off because he’s already walking around with nothing up there.

Here's an earlier act of treachery by Lindsey Graham, one in which he furiously worked out back-room deals with Democrats and lobbyists in an attempt to impose a "Cap and Trade" economy upon the American people. Ironically, he was only thwarted bya double-cross committed by the one and only Barack Obama, who saw greater use hanging Graham out for the tax hikes in the "compromise" bill than in the actual bill itself.

More dummy then dhimmi, I guess. But dangerous either way. 2014 can't come soon enough in South Carolina...
