Jon Karl to Cheney: Are You Accusing Obama of ‘Treason’?
Mediaite ^ | June 22, 2014 | Evan McMurry

On This Week with George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning, ABC News Chief White House correspondent Jon Karl asked former Vice President Dick Cheney if his op-ed in the Wall Street Journal last week, in which Cheney and daughter Liz accused President Barack Obama of wanting to take America “down a notch,” was tantamount to calling Obama a traitor.

“It almost seems like you’re accusing the president of treason here,” Karl said, “saying he’s intentionally bringing America down a notch.”

While adding that he intended “no disrespect” to Obama, Cheney launched into a comprehensive critique of the president’s foreign policy, which he alleged had created vacuums in Iraq and Afghanistan for terrorists to fill.

“He is dramatically limiting the capability of future presidents to deal with crises by virtue of the policies he’s taken,” Cheney said....

Why is it so hard for people who have a position to know it is to say the words? They either love their country or they don’t.

It was a really contentious interview and a lot of fun to listen to. Cheney didn't really win the verbal warfare. Why? Cheney was very, very good at blaming Obama for the damage done to foreign policy.

But then, Cheney was asked the obvious question. What would he do from this point forward? Cheney had no answer. The panel later on in the show actually had some ideas, which made Cheney not having any solutions seem even weaker.

JMHO

... it’s difficult to un-ring the bell.
In Obama’s eyes, a nuclear Iran is great and in keeping with Alexander Dugin’s model (the new, euroasian FASCIST’S handbook).

Yes indeedy, America WILL be taken down a notch. Americans need to wake up before they are fully cooked.

The Won is treasoness in more than one way.

But since nothing will be done...I’ve quit getting as upset as I used to.

Well I can assume this Karl twit feels that it is treason for a President to limit and create crappy foreign policy and take America down a notch - which Obrahma has done.

The Press spent eight years implying that President Bush was guilty of Treason, but I guess they forgot.

To be a traitor to America, he would have to be an American. I’m not willing to accept that. Truly. He is an Usurper that was elected by a party of traitors.

Best way to rephrase question:

Are you accusing Obama of treason, and if not why not?

What would he do from this point forward? Cheney had no answer.

Cheney has given several interviews lately. He did say what he would do. He said he would consider sending troops into Syria, he would send far more troops into Iraq than 300, and he would not be pulling the military out of afganistan.

In my opinion, Barack Obama would not necessarily have to be or to have been an American before he is judged as being a Traitor. As President of the United States, Obama was given the trust of the nation to guard and protect her. Obama has repeatedly and flagrantly breached and violated that trust.
There has been Criminal Negligence in the performance of his duties. For that, and other crimes, he should be penalized.
Sadly, this is a target rich environment. There is so much that had been done and continues to be done through the White House, the present dilemma is where to start?

Actually, I believe that the current dilemma is the after math of any action against The Won.

The Dems were smart enough to get a half black man elected. What he did from there on out really didn’t matter. Look at those supporting him. Not only the every day run of the mill black guy/gal...but supposedly educated people.

If there is any action against the big O...it would cause total chaos. But O would like that. Martial law, etc.

Pretty smart move to ram thru an agenda. A woman that wins the presidency (D) won’t have to have that fear. There isn’t that kind of dedication among women.
