President Obama is "tone-deaf" on sensitive political matters, a character flaw that is going to doom Democrats during the November elections, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday.

The South Carolina Republican, an occasional ally of the administration on immigration, energy policy and military issues, told NBC's "Meet The Press" host David Gregory that most Americans simply disagree with the president on most issues. Obama's agenda is too liberal for the country.

Democrats, led by Obama, have gone "hard to the left," Graham said.

"Now they have nothing to show for their efforts but bigger government and more debt," he said. "Now they own this agenda that I think has been the most liberal agenda in modern times, and at the end of the day the public is not in the left ditch, they're not in the right ditch, they're in the right-center of the road. And the only way the president can possibly survive is to come back to the middle.

"He's tone-deaf. Putting KSM on trial in New York City? Made no sense. Interjected himself into the mosque debate? Made no sense. He's tone-deaf on terrorism issues, and he's certainly tone-deaf on the economy."
