“It started with Benghazi,” Graham tweeted on Tuesday. “When you kill Americans and nobody pays a price, you invite this type of aggression.”

In what has to be the most desperate and unpatriotic political move of the week so far, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina chose Twitter to find yet another way to deliver the double blow of weakening President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

His efforts to connect the Russian invasion of Crimea with the Obama administrations reaction to the 2012 terrorist attack that left four Americans dead in Libya is a new low in politics. Efforts to inflame the Fox News manufactured scandal of Benghazi and hurt Clinton’s chances in 2016 have been going on for months, but to bring that into foreign policy and undermine the President of the United States in a time of crisis is despicable.

Earlier on Tuesday, Graham wrote a tweet in which he displayd either telepathy, or some insider information from the Kremlin. “Putin basically came to the conclusion after Benghazi, Syria, Egypt - everything Obama has been engaged in - he's a weak indecisive leader,” he wrote.

“Weak, indecisive leader,” it is interesting that those are almost the exact same words being used by the right-wing media at every opportunity - coincidence?
