Graham gives Ashton Carter a thumbs-up

Graham Statement on Nomination of Ashton Carter for Defense Secretary

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today issued the following statement on the nomination of Ashton Carter for Secretary of Defense.

“Ashton Carter has the knowledge and capability to serve as Secretary of Defense during these difficult times. He has proven to be a leading voice when it comes to articulating the damage done to our military by budget cuts.

“I expect he will face tough questions at his confirmation hearing about President Obama’s failing national security policy, but I expect he will be confirmed.”


Yeah, but it would have been so much cooler had he chosen Joe Lieberman! #threeamigos

    I keep thinking Ashton Carter was married to Demi Moore.

    So I guess the Three Amigos are no more….

      Having to be SECDEF for this administration? Talk about being an “Ainsley Hayes” character. Best of luck to Mr. Carter; I certainly don’t envy him.

    This is what is so disturbing about Graham. He throws out these nonsensisical bromides when there is no need for it. Our military is huge, too huge, but there he goes whining about “gutting” something that is clearly “ungut”. Frankly Graham has become a genuine threat to our security because of his bellicosity.
