Dick Cheney: Barack Obama 'trying to pretend'
Politico ^ | December 30, 2009 | MIKE ALLEN

Posted on 12/30/2009 3:18:54 AM PST by maggief

Former Vice President Dick Cheney accused President Barack Obama on Tuesday of “trying to pretend we are not at war” with terrorists, pointing to the White House response to the attempted sky bombing as reflecting a pattern that includes banishing the term “war on terror” and attempting to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center.

“[W]e are at war and when President Obama pretends we aren’t, it makes us less safe,” Cheney said in a statement to POLITICO. “Why doesn’t he want to admit we’re at war? It doesn’t fit with the view of the world he brought with him to the Oval Office. It doesn’t fit with what seems to be the goal of his presidency – social transformation—the restructuring of American society.”

“Why doesn’t he want to admit we’re at war?”

Because that would be admitting his foreign policy magic touch is nothing more than a mirage.

I love that picture of Mr. Gravitas - Dick Cheney!

To Zero, VP Cheney is saying:

I’ve sized you up, you little pipsqueak America hater and I know what your game is. I will be watching you.....don’t think I won’t be!

“”Our nation is at war against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred.””
Yeah, but the great zero was referring to conservatives.

Can’t tell if Bush looks like he’s ready to bust out crying because the of who’s taking over or bust out laughing.
No doubt what Cheney’s thinking. LOL.

Yes you did.

I expect MANY Americans wish we had Bush/Cheney back in charge now that it’s clear to all that the War on Terror is very much still going on!

Zero is trying hard (by his additional speech on the subject yesterday) to LOOK as if he cares, and to LOOK as if he views things serously - but the only reason he is putting on such an appearance is that his handlers evidently commumicated to him that the latest info coming out (that HIS CIA had interviewed the Detroit bomber’s father weeks before the bombing attempt) would make totally clear the incompetence and danger that MOST AMERICANS would now understand to be coming from his anti-American administration.

Good words from Cheney!

Vice President Cheney is the only one with guts.

What this wonderful man needs to do now is to spill the beans about this cheeky Kenyan bastard’s past and present secrets for the good of our country. I have no doubts he has all the dirt on him.

I love Cheney. He is a real man.

This is a sneaky way of Cheney calling the child POTUS a PRETENDER period!
