South Carolina State Senator Lee Bright, challenging Lindsey Graham for his U.S. Senate seat, wants Republicans to stand up to President Obama like those really good guys, Bashar al-Assad and Vladimir Putin.

Republicans need to learn to start playing offense and quit playing so much defense. You look at, of course I hate to use examples, you look at Assad and you look at Putin, when people stand up to Obama, you see that he backs up and his lines in the sand become erased.

If [Speaker] Boehner had the courage that Putin and Assad had, we’d be living in a different America, but we don’t have the leadership and we’ve got to continue to try to get folks to Washington that are going to take the fight to the liberal agenda.

One thing Bright want to stand up against is the “homosexual agenda.”

Bright previously appeared in these pages when he argued that if you don’t have a job, you shouldn’t eat.
