Cheney: Obama is 'Unmitigated Disaster'
Arutz Sheva ^ | 16/4/12 | Rachel Hirshfeld

Posted on 04/16/2012 2:13:17 AM PDT by Eleutheria5

Just weeks after undergoing heart transplant surgery, forme U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney plunged back into the political debate on Saturday, praising Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney while lambasting President Obama as an "unmitigated disaster."

Cheney’s remarks came during an hour-and-15-minute talk at the Wyoming Republican Party state convention in Cheyenne on Saturday,

After Rick Santorum dropped out of the race this past week, Cheney urged the party to place their support behind Romney, saying that the Massachusetts governor would do a "whale of a job."

His opinion of President Obama, however, was not quite as positive, asserting that the incumbent has been “an unmitigated disaster to the country."

Romney, I suppose, will be a mitigated disaster.

Pretty much, yeah. FWIW, I doubt he’ll actively work towards Israel’s destruction.

Yeah. That’d be an improvement, anyway. Hip. Hip. Hurrah. Get out and vote, I suppose.

Cheney is too kind.

Calling Obama an unmitigated disaster is an insult to unmitigated disasters.

I had to laugh yesterday, however nervously, as I was watching an episode of “The Universe” where mitigation of an imminent earth-asteroid collision was discussed and depicted with computer animation of a nuke-laden rocket being launched at it.

If nothing is planned to at least attempt to avert such an impact, we would be vulnerable to an unmitigated disaster.

And just as the above far out scenario warns, Obama’s presidency has already been a kind of unmitigated disaster.

Good call, Mr C!

He's certainly on the risk register. Where's the mitigation plan?

I don’t know what he’s talking about.

Before Obama, I used to get stuck in traffic all the time. Now, driving the exact same route, I don’t.

Isn’t that a positive?

(Never mind that the decreased traffic is due to decreased employment... one can’t be liberal without being selfish.)

He might have a right wing running mate, and then die suddenly of natural causes.

Romney supports the 911 Victory Mosque
and the Islamic stealing of Jerusalem.

So much for the RomneyBOT prop.

If the Chen thinks our first foreign born Islamic Marxist mulatto POTUS is a disaster now, wait till he sees him in his 2nd term. Unmitigated disaster won’t even begin to describe the horror that awaits. And he will do a 2nd term because Romney doesn’t stand a chance against this fool. Romneys whole campaign is “Yes I did the same things as Obama but I won’t do the same things”.. Oh yeah, that’ll work LOL Good going Repub-Es.

Yes me too, there have been some positives with Obama. Besides reduced traffic, McDonalds has a special with Big Macs, two for $2.50 and we’ve had a relatively mild winter. Oh yes, and he has also promoted golf. So I wouldn’t call Obama an “unmitigated” disaster.

I am thankful for men such as Cheney. And I am in total agreeement with him on 0bama. And prayers for the donor and the family who gave Mr. Cheney his life saving donation. It makes me thankful to see him acknowledge the sacrifice of others. The heart may not have been his to begin with but there is no doubt where this man’s heart lies.

I agree with Cheney, as well as Sarah Palin, which is why I'm voting for the only alternative that can defeat Obama, the Republican nominee.

Obama was just trying to fill the vacuum that Tiger left.

No experience as an administrator, less than two years as a legislator, Obama is president only because he is black.

“Obama was just trying to fill the vacuum that Tiger left.”

I theorize that the vacuum Obama stepped into was by design.

If it hadn’t happened the way it did, I think Tiger would have done much to steal Obama’s thunder without even trying.

I’ll bet the O’ministration was pleased at the outcome and how Tiger Woods’ image would be lackluster in comparison to their manufactured image of Obama.

They discovered his weakness and exploited it with the help of Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley, who are some of Obama’s main men and were probably go-to guys in getting Tiger to “go for it”.

Now if only we could witness the return of Tiger and his winning ways in direct synchronous proportion to the fall of Obama and his treasonous ways.

Unreal. All this guy does is play golf, give a speech (usually at a fundraiser) and travel to other countries. Mark Levin reads Obamas schedule on the air and it’s always always the same thing, he does nothing.

Look at this, he has absolutely nothing scheduled to infinity. I kept clicking the next day and the next over and over nothing.....

I assume he is on vacation again.

Here is one schedule I found whooo..How can he take this much work? A 5 hour day! And I thought my 14 hour days were tough! Oh my, he must have been exhausted by 5:30 especially with that almost 2 hour lunch and having to sign a bill then *gasp* watch a movie!

Imagine what VP Cheney was thinking at that moment:

"I know EXACTLY what you are.. and I'm watching."

There’s also the fact that he’s alienating Jews from the DOP and energizing the Right. And then there are the jokes. Freep has never had so many good jokes before, because we’ve never had such a good target before. Clinton was horny and sleazy, and his wife thought she was all that. But now we’ve got a megalomaniac in the WH, and Hillary.

It’s the only way to avoid weeping. That which can neither be remedied nor endured must be laughed at.
