Lindsey Graham Leads With Quips: Going to 'Drink More'

Lindsey Graham Leads With Quips: Going to 'Drink More'

Sen. Lindsey Graham was the first GOP debate candidate to compare himself to Ronald Reagan at Wednesday's early presidential debate, and he showed it by leading with the quips.

The debate was held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, and the South Carolina senator noted that although he is a law school graduate, he didn't always study as he should.

"I wasn't the best law student. By the end of this debate it's the most time that I've spent in any library," Graham said.

After being referred to as an "elite," he responded, "I've been called a lot of things, but never an elite before. My dad owned a liquor store and a poolroom."
As for the gay marriage vs. religious rights debate, Graham had a word of advice on why all sides should get together.

"For the wedding cake baker or the gay couple or the Baptist preacher, radical Islam would kill you all if they could," he said.

But Graham also promised to work with Democrats if elected – just like Reagan did with Democratic House Speaker Tip O'Neil.

Reagan "sat down with Tip O'Neil, the most liberal guy in the entire House," Graham said.
"They started drinking together. That's the first thing I'm going to do as president. We're going to drink more."
