Lindsey Graham: Putin Invaded Crimea Because Of Benghazi

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Fox's Greta Van Susteren on Monday that Vladimir Putin invaded Crimea due to "the wrong signal" Obama sent regarding Benghazi. Graham, of course, forgot to blame President Bush in 2008 when Russia invaded Georgia. Regardless, Graham took to Twitter the next day, stating repeatedly that since Putin wasn't frightened of Obama, he felt free to undertake an invasion. Here are some Tweets showing that Graham is a complete dunce about world affairs:

My screens are blank, but you made your point...and I'm glad you did, showing the hipocrisy of the Republican opposition.

Also please explain this to me: We invade Iraq, where we had absolutely no vested interest whatsoever, on deliberatley trumped up charges, and expect world opinion to comply; yet Putin, right or wrong, invades Ukraine,rightin his backyard, where Russia most definitely has a vested interest, and we expect the world to agree to punish.

Yes, the hypocrisy of those who supported the war in Iraq yet decry the violation of Ukraine's integrity is blatant.
