Graham: GOP can beat Obama

Washington (CNN) – Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham predicted President Barack Obama is beatable in the 2012 presidential election, but only if the Republican nominee wins over independent voters.

"Conservatism sells, it's a center right nation but the nominee for the party is going to have to win the independent voter at the end of the day," Graham said Monday in an interview set to air at 7 p.m. ET on CNN's "John King, USA."

Graham said Republicans have a chance to take back the White House because Democrats "sort of blew it."

"We got a chance now to reengage with the American people," Graham told CNN Chief National Correspondent John King. "The health care debate I think will define 2012."

    Mubarak should leave with shame. He stole
    billions while the poor live in graveyards and
    garbage dumps. He has no shame. When is the world going to stop letting these creeps have dignity? They deserve nothing but shame!
    Any country that can not provide all of its people a way to earn a living has nothing to
    be proud of. Why should 90 % have jobs and the rest not have a job when the problem of unemployment is so easy to solve by creating
    a Reserve-Retraining Workforce? Every person
    lives now-not some time in the future. How dumb can world, so called leaders, be? America
    borrows money from China when she could create her own money and put people to work
    building and repairing the infrastructure. But how do you get past idiots like Ron Paul, Alan Simpson and their kind. If the Federal Reserve
    can create money for the Devil Damn Banks, why can it not create money and pay down the national debt? What devalues money is when you have people unemployed that could be producing goods and services which have real value. Money is the medium of exchange, not the commodity.
