The Cheneys' Anti-Obama Assault Continues: 'Siding with the Terrorists' (before U-Turn on pics)
Black Entertainment Television ^ | 5/13/09 | By BET.com Staff

Posted on 05/13/2009 10:45:12 AM PDT by lewisglad

On Tuesday, Liz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, continued the family’s air assault on Obama that began shortly after he became the nation’s first African-American president.

Speaking to FOX News, Liz took her father’s criticism of Obama a step further, saying that it appears the president is actually siding with terrorists. The insult was in response to the Obama administration’s decision to release photographs alleged to show abuses at U.S. prisons in Iraq and Afghanistan during the Bush administration.

"I think it is really appalling that the administration is taking this step," she said in the interview. "Clearly what they are doing is releasing images that show American military men and woman in a very negative light." She continued: "I have heard from families of service members from families of 9/11 victims this question about when did it become so fashionable for us to side, really, with the terrorists. …You know, President Obama has a lot of rhetoric about support for American military families, support for our men and women who are fighting for us overseas. But if he really cares about them, then he wouldn't be making such an effort to release photos that show them in a negative light."

The hundreds of photos in question were taken during more than 60 criminal investigations between 2001 and 2006, and allegedly show military personnel abusing detainees.

In recent weeks, Dick Cheney, who was rarely heard from during his eight years as vice president, has railed against President Obama, accusing him of making America less safe. His daughter told FOX News, that the Obama administration appears “only to be interested in releasing things that really paint American in a negative light and don't give the American people a full picture of what went on."

Why include the token line about being the first African-American president? Relevance? Anyone?

Too busy airing episodes of “American Gangsta”, which glorifies pimps, pushers and murderers.

No time for a man who accomplished something positive.

Black organizations and black leaders who insist on equating opposition to the policies of the current incumbent
with a racist motivation, or who blindly defend this individual and assault his critics on no more apparent basis than his “blackness,” are setting the stage for serious racial tensions in this country - tensions like those which have never existed in recent decades.

The Cheney's are in full frontal attack mode because of Obama's attack on America, the Bush administration and its policies (which kept America safe) and on the VP himself...and well they should...and they seem to be very effective.

Because bublic back lash appears to be getting to this guy.

Good. We need to apply the same pressure in other areas to back this marxist down until we can get him neutered in 2010 and then replaced in 2012.

Actually, Cheney SHOULD have been President, but Bush II should have been the doorkeeper to the White House.

Had Cheney been President, Obama would NOT have won in 2010 and the Republicans would NOT have lost control of Congress.

Cheney is a man with guts and a functioning brain who loves America and stands for everything Americans hold near and dear.

Shortly after? Maybe I missed something but I thought this started recently, after BO went public with material. ?

It's now the month of May--they're making it sound like Cheney has been relentless since January.

Sooner or later, black Americans are going to have to disown Oba Mao. He is NOT a descendant of slaves. More than likely, his Daddy was a descendant of slave traders who were mainly forced to give up that sorry trade by British warships patrolling the coast of Kenya and Somalia a quarter century or so after our Civil War.

Real descendants of American slaves who have done real research into their family tree like Alex Haley of Roots fame have discovered that slaves originated overwhelmingly from west central Africa. The slave traders overwhelmingly originated from northeast Africa, notably Kenya, Somalia and Sudan, the only place where it is still practiced today.

So Zero's ancestors have more responsibility for slavery in America than your average white guy's ancestors.

Exactly. Where's Jeb and Mitt - the 'forget Reagan' twosome. Where's Newt? Where's Hunter - he wants exposure, now's his time. Seems they only want to speak up when there's something in it for them.

No, “activist” black Americans will NEVER disown 0bama until we stop reading articles like this, where race is gratuitously thrown in despite it’s patent irrelevance. It’s the same group of black Americans who will not disown other black Americans who commit crimes. I practice criminal law, and I often have the black client whose family and friends claim he was arrested or is being harshly prosecuted simply because he is black. My usual response is that if they want the claim of racism taken seriously, they ought to seriously consider NOT COMMITTING CRIMES. It doesn’t help a claim of racism that the police found cocaine, guns and counterfeit checks in the stolen car they crashed during the high-speed pursuit.

No, too many blacks see the bogeyman of racism behind every bush and tree; they will not disown 0bama.

Half white and at least a quarter Arab. Black Arab Muslims consider themselves a higher breed than just plain black people because Mo was an Arab. That's why they felt entitled to enslave them.

European slave traders did not even enter the picture until the late 15th century and then it was only the Iberian Europeans.

The northern and northeast Africans were in about the 6th or 7th century of practicing slavery by then. In fact, it was the forced conversion to Islam which turned large swaths Africa from Egypt to Nigeria from being among the most advanced civilizations in the world at the time of Mohammad into being virtually destroyed by the time the Portuguese begin to explore it in depth by the early 15th century, to be followed by the Spanish, who looked at Africa as a source of cheap labor to develop their holdings in the Americas.

Indeed, the mortality rate was so poor among slaves sent to present day Latin America that the British, Dutch and slave traders which came into the sorry trade over the next two centuries were considered benevolent.

Indeed, one of the early justifications for slavery was the higher civilizations of northern Europe were saving lives by rescuing the people of west central Africa from the aggressive tribes of northeast Africa who would either (a)kill them, (b)work them to death or (c)sell them to the Iberians who would work them to death.
