Lindsey Graham: I Fear Iran More Than ISIS | Meet The Press | NBC News

Does anyone ever think that who is president doesn’t matter?

It is certainly fashionable in Europe to claim that the two main parties in the U.S. are the same.

But while Democrat Barack Obama has decreased troop levels throughout the Middle East, South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham showed that he would have no qualms with attacking and invading Iran.

The potential 2016 presidential candidate said on Sunday he fears Iran more than the terror group ISIS.

“Absolutely,” he said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “It’s not even close.”

“They’re an evil regime,” he said. “A cold-blooded regime.”

The Obama administration is currently participating in the P5+1 discussions with Iran to limit the country’s nuclear program. The P5+1 includes China, Russia, the United States, Britain, France, and Germany. P5+1 is in reference to the permanent five members of the UN Security Council plus Germany. These countries are negotiating with Iran.

Republicans have roundly denounced a potential deal that would allow Tehran to maintain some nuclear capabilities for civilian purposes. In fact, reacently, 47 Republicans bypassed the president and sent a letter to the head of the Iranian government stating that they apparently won’t honor the deal after Obama leaves office.

The letter sent to Iran was written by freshman Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton and co-signed by 46 of his GOP colleagues, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Obama, at a White House photo opportunity Monday, said he is proceeding with negotiations. “I think it’s somewhat ironic to see some members of Congress wanting to make common cause with the hard-liners in Iran,” he said. “It’s an unusual coalition.”

“No deal is better than a bad deal,” Graham said in his talk with Chuck Todd on Meet The Press, saying the exact words said by Bibi Netanyahu.
