Skip to comments.Dick Cheney: Barack Obama 'trying to pretend'
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 arent, it makes us less safe, Cheney said in a statement to POLITICO. Why doesnt he want to admit were at war? It doesnt fit with the view of the world he brought with him to the Oval Office. It doesnt fit with what seems to be the goal of his presidency social transformationthe restructuring of American society.

I knew he would be back. He loves tis country too much not to fight for her.
Darn I'm good. If I were any better I'd be great.
Because that would be admitting his foreign policy magic touch is nothing more than a mirage.
Great picture of Cheney. That look on his face says it all.
It sure does. He didn’t fool Cheney.
Picture of a thousand words.
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.
Thank you for your service to the country Mr. Vice President.
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.
OH WOW!... Love Channeys look! Speaks volumes does it not?
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.
Cheney thinking to himself: He's got ears bigger than some satellite dishes,I'm so glad I brought this dog whistle to this charade
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 bastards 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.
AS A PROUD MEMBER (1 of MILLIONS) OF “DEMOCRATS FOR CHENEY/PALIN 2012”, I ASK ALL TO SUPPORT OUR CANDIDATES!
This is a sneaky way of Cheney calling the child POTUS a PRETENDER period!
A classic Cheney photo...a personal favorite.
A picture is worth a thousand words....
Love that voice of sanity! A grown up addressing the kids.
He is a pretender. Doesn’t need to try.
How's that "dialog" thing workin' out for ya? The jackals of the world are hungry and couldn't care less about dialog, they see it as weakness.
Heard on the news this morning that Putin is planning to build more missiles in response to any anti-missile defense. The One has new threats growing around him every day, playing nice with our foes isn't going to make it go away. I wonder if he's feeling overwhelmed yet. Dubya played nice with the Dems with his "new tone" and has already said he regrets it. It only gets worse outside our borders.
He has scaled back the “War” to a police, law enforcement issue. The War is in Afghanistan. Everything else is a law enforcement issue. 0bama is not pretending, unfortunately. 0bama will not be forthcoming with a word of warning to Yemen about al-queda within their borders. It is a Yemen police issue, not an international one, just a nuisance criminal issue.
Politico clowns never hide their BDS in ANY of their “reportage”.
That's the right question, and Cheney knows the answer to it.
Check him out in post #2.
I love that man!
Cheney / Palin 2012!
Gawd, I love Dick Cheney.
Now where was that MP3 of “The Great Pretender”?
I can back that ticket. I love Sarah and want her as president now. But in a dream, should Cheney decide to run, she is young enough she can wait a little longer.
We’ve had this photo since January, and I’ve always focused more on Cheney and his stare and what it means.
It just occured to me that W is praying in this pic.
Anyone else see this?
There is another answer.
Obama knows full-well there's a war. He's just on the other side.
“A classic Cheney photo...a personal favorite.”
Mine too!!! I really love it!!!
I second that! I miss Dick Cheney.
I don’t think Obama impressed Cheney...that is one funny picture....I love Dick C...and his wife....
Dubya: "..ain't gonna take long for the average American to figure out just what your pay scale is"
Only one man in that photo should have been president.
“Only one man in that photo should have been president.”
I agree with you, and we are not talking about idiot Bush.
He kept this Country safe for many long years.
I wonder what people like you are thinking when you trash W.
That photo is deserving of about one hundred thousand words.
Dick probably knows little bammies secret(s). So, the question is will bammy fold and when? Will Dick spill bammie's beans?
I don't know but you can bet the farm Dick will not let this nation go under to protect the boy king.
If you have been doing any reading, Clinton then Bush helped put us in this mess.
Among many things, Bush never tried to close the boarders. But then, idiot Rove was doing Bush’s thinking for him.
In fact, toward the end of Bush’s term, Bush wasn’t speaking to Cheney. Again, Cheney was man enough and smart enough to disagree with what Rove and Bush were doing or rather not doing.
Where is Sarah? I’ve been awaiting her response, am somewhat disappointed that she hasn’t come out with a statement yet.
Show some respect, it is obvious that the idiot is setting behind your keyboard.
What a bunch of bunk. Reading what?
You’re still spreading the Left’s points that “Rove was doing Bushs thinking.” You have nothing but your own little mind and people who used to be foul mouthed comedian(e)s or theater critics to back your accusations.
I remember in my younger years watching the very popular actor Rock Hudson back then in scenes where he is romancing the women like Doris Day and such, and I always though it just doesn’t look right, same thing when the TV show Brady Bunch rolled around, the dad just felt kinda weird to me.
Obama has the very same impression, like a poser that is fighting to appear normal but yearns to be what he really is but must wage a clever everyday act to conceal it.
