Lindsey Graham to Obama: How about ‘manning up’ on debt?

Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) gave President Obama some advice Monday on how to forge a deal over the national debt.

Graham said in an interview on Fox News that Republicans were not planning to budge on refusing to raise the debt ceiling without spending cuts, and he accused Obama of playing "small ball" by urging a tax-rate hike on top earners.
