Graham Calls Lame Duck Session "Excruciating"

In an interview on Face the Nation, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) suggested Democrats just wanted to use the lame duck session to make Republicans look bad.

Said Graham: "The last two weeks have been an absolutely excruciating exercise -- Don't Ask, Don't Tell -- a controversial topic. Some say the civil rights issue of our generation, others say battlefield effectiveness was passed in the lame-duck session without one amendment being offered. The DREAM Act we've had two votes on the DREAM Act. Controversial immigration, there was no efforts to find a common ground there, passed without the ability to amend to try to make Republicans look bad with Hispanics."
