According to one Republican senator, President George W. Bush did what President Barack Obama apparently can’t do: He admitted when he was wrong.

On CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said he doesn’t blame Obama for taking a vacation, but he said the president needs to acknowledge that his foreign policy is failing.

“The president’s strategy of leading from behind and light footprint has failed,” Graham said. “He has to realize, as President Bush did, that his strategy is not working. President Bush adjusted his strategy when it was failing, and he brought about a surge that worked. President Obama has to admit to himself, if no one else, that what he’s doing is not working.”
