"I miss George W. Bush!" Graham yelled during the CNN GOP debate Tuesday.
"The surge worked. It worked," Graham said, referring to the late-stage Bush policy in Iraq. "George W Bush made mistakes, but he did adjust. I blame Obama for ISIL, not Bush."
Graham said he was fed up with the "beating up on Bush."
"I miss George W. Bush. I wish you were President right now. We wouldn’t be in this mess," Graham said.
