Cheney: I Dont Pay a Lot of Attention to What Barack Obama Says By Patrick Brennan June 16, 2013 10:23 AM
Dick Cheney said this morning that its good the executive branch is still running counterterrorism surveillance operations, but hes unhappy with how the president has talked about them and defended them. The president ought to be able to say this is a righteous program, Cheney said, but President Obama instead has run the program while claiming most prominently in his speech at the National Defense University recently that the War on Terror is coming to an end. On that, the former vice president said, hes just dead wrong . . . its not winding down. In fact, the area thats safe harbor for terrorists now runs all across North Africa and the threats bigger than ever, Cheney told Fox Newss Chris Wallace.
Vice President Cheney said that the administration ruined its credibility through dishonesty over the events in Benghazi and the IRS targeting. The guy has failed to be forthright and honest, Cheney said.
Tell it like it is Tripod.
“its good the executive branch is still running counterterrorism surveillance operations...”
Every Verizon and AT&T customer is a terrorist?
Oh how I yearn for straight-talking adult leadership again.
Amen to that!!
What’s the difference between the Boy Scouts and the White House?
Obama is right. He IS ending the war on terror.
He's now fighting a war on Conservatism, Christianity, and Patriotism.
Besides, has Ubama even said anything about the goings on at NSA?
He's been so busy attending fundraisers he may not have had time to pick up a paper and read what is going on in his administration.
Saw Cheney on Fox this morning, he’s looking great. It warms my heart to see him looking healthy.
“’The guy has failed to be forthright and honest,’ Cheney said.”
You can be sure that anything out of the mouth of Obama is either a lie or an “uh”.
The Scouts have fewer gaywads.
I had predicted that George Bush would come out supporting his surveillance program under Urkel but I screwed up. Dick Cheney carries a lot more weight with conservatives.
Well maybe this fool SHOULD pay attention to what he says. As much as I don’t want to, I pay attention to what both Cheney and Obama say ... and they have done more to destroy America than just about anyone in history.
Would should he? America is only going the hell in a handbasket (*yawn*)
Coincidentally and strangely enough, neither does his former boss, George W. Bush. Except when a library is being dedicated.
“Well maybe this fool SHOULD pay attention to what he says.”
Not needing to hear what Obama says is like not needing a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.
Cheney is and always was a proponent of Big Guv Machination, Big Brother, and CFR/Globalist policies.
NOT an "America-First" Team-Player.
neither do I , I have Auto Mute
I have been saying it since Libya.
Al Queda holds the entire north of Africa now.
A beach head across from Europe.
Obama did not just allow it to happen.
He made that happen.
How do former Presidents, VPs, and previous administrations suddenly NOT care a whit as the nation devolves into a Commie-Fascist police state??
I don't get this indifference of which ways the winds of (subversive) change are blowing by (Republican) titans whose job in theory used to be the maintenance of security and integrity of the USA.
I HAVE noticed that Coincidentally, Liz Cheney in an interview with Hannity FULLY supported the NSA as well and despises Snowden.
The point is, Who cares what he says? Pay attention to what he does.
Cheney has lost all credibility. He should just go away.
and your point is a good one. Obumbo has made many comments about a lot of things which do not jive with what he has done, which polite society says is misleading. In a pragmatic society one would say he is a liar or worse.
Frankly, I despise the thing, whatever form of being he is. I cannot stand his voice so I do not listen to anything he says but I do watch what he does and what his minions do as he bids them to do.
He is a professional charlatan and worse.
Cheney is just saying that in a polite way.
Correction: He IS attempting to end our involvement in the war on terror. The war will continue and we will be a victim, yet again, thanks to Soetoro, who has failed to learn from one of his predecessors.
"You may not be interested in war but war is interested in you." Leon Trotsky
“How do former Presidents, VPs, and previous administrations suddenly NOT care a whit as the nation devolves into a Commie-Fascist police state??”
It almost seems that way, doesn’t it? What are they thinking, that “this too shall pass”?
I greatly admire and appreciate Vice President Cheney. However, we see in this thread that there is a difference between being right-wing and constitutionally conservative.
As the fight to protect us in the war on terror sacrificed constitutional strictures it was initially run by Those like Cheney who were using all their power to protect our nation. Now the same structures they set up allow misuse by those that wish to undermine our nation.
That is why we have a Constitution that should not be trifled with. This business of Republics granting “Emergency” powers is as old as Rome, as old as Scipio and Fabian. These issues are dangerous and never turn out well in the long road. Once the precedence is set it is a long decline into Empire.
Honestly? I believe they are complicit.
Terrorism will be around for a long time to come. It will be up to the next Republican President to fight it.
For now, the NSA Surveillance program is only being utilized to minimize the chances of a Republican ever becoming President.
Although we continue to make strides at the local and state level.
That may be better in the long run, anyway.
I'm not totally convinced President Romney would've been THAT much different than President Jarrett....ummm....errrr.....I mean Obama.
“HEAR ya.” (fat fingers)

Cheney has a lot more credibility with me than any Democrat or RINO...and some FReepers!
This thread will be an example of Freepers supporting big Gubment and survailence under Bush/Cheney but pulling out the Constitution on Obummer.
Hypocrites on both sides.
Uncle Sam has always had ears.
He just is not supposed to use them to persecute people along political or religious lines.
He aint listening to you talk with Aunt Mabel unless you and Aunt Mabel came up on the radar for something and then they have to take it to a judge for permesso.
I knew than chicken broaster would get Aunt Mabel in trouble one day./s
We got conned. Unfortunately, the Left hasn't yet figured out Obama is doing the same thing to them.
I agree 100%.
The really bad news: Two sides. Same globalist coin.
Even the Left has been awakens somewhat with the revelations that their own precious right to privacy and illegal search has been routinely violated without their knowledge.
We have no business in that civil war.
Sorry, Mr. Cheney. The war on terror IS coming to an end—on Obama’s watch—so he can keep from killing his fellow shariah-wielding muslims.
The problem is once a Gubment is granted powers and money it is simply a matter of time before those powers and money are used in ways they are not “supposed” to be used.p
I am not blameless. I was conflicted on the Patriot Act. I took the position of neither supporting or opposing it.
And after hearing you today Dick I think you should enjoy your retirement.
Most of us did. Given that when it was enacted there proably wasn't anyone who had read all of it, what basis did we have to decide one way or the other? All we had to go on was a lot of posturing and platitudes about it being the right thing to do.
Cheney is showing class by not being more forceful in his statements. You may have to read between the lines to get his full meanings, but to make it otherwise would be highly improper - similar to the Dims slamming our country while abroad or constantly blaming Bush for their failures of morality and righteousness.
Hell, Dick, I do not pay ANY attention to what Zero says!
Thank God for him.
I wonder what the "Paid Liar" will say to that.
