Hillary Clinton Rips Into Dick Cheney For Obama Criticism
BI ^ | 7-29-2014 | Colin Campbell

Hillary Clinton isn't a fan of Vice President Dick Cheney's scathing June op-ed on President Barack Obama's foreign policy, which declared, "Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much."

Clinton, a leading potential presidential contender in 2016, told Fusion host Jorge Ramos that Cheney had a far worse record.

"He should have been talking about himself, shouldn't he?" Clinton said of Cheney, according to an interview segment published online Monday evening.

In his op-ed, Cheney harshly criticized Obama's approach to the military conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, claiming Obama was more focused on recreational activities than stabilizing the region.

"Iraq is at risk of falling to a radical Islamic terror group and Mr. Obama is talking climate change. Terrorists take control of more territory and resources than ever before in history, and he goes golfing. He seems blithely unaware," Cheney wrote. "Obama is on track to securing his legacy as the man who betrayed our past and squandered our freedom."

Cheney was NOT the president. The decisions were not his to make.

Hillary makes a glib remark to fend off a question about a real critical assessment by a statesman about the leader of her party and it is termed substantial?

If she had written a long op-ed, that would be “rips in” but this is just dodging a question.

Cheney has his flaws.

But Hillary Clinton is a first grader to Cheney's grad student. I'm sure he just chuckles at her comments.

Clinton is part of the failure of Obamas policy. As SOS she helped to form this policy. The world is a mess, Americas influence has dropped and it all points to the day Obamas took control.
It’s no wonder she would like to point fingers elsewhere.

But people were there, they remember.

The ‘we need to come together’ comment from Hillary makes me hurl.
Those on the left who spit in the well, will drink the poison they made.
There’s no one I know who will follow any of these “Progressive” idiots into battle of any kind.

She wants to differentiate herself from Obama, painting herself as oh-so-knowledgeable about foreign policy. But, agreeing directly with Demon Cheney is one bridge too far!

Agree, but the media’s job is to cover the Democrats rearmost extremity, and not report real news.

Couldn’t have said it better myself.

It only goes to show you what a fantasy world liberals
create for themselves that then turns into a hell for
everyone else.

(Yawn)----don't get yourselves in a lather. It's only "dead broke Hillary reinventing herself....a-g-a-i-n.

The Clintons are paranoid---Hillary's "dead broke" comment to ABC's Diane Sawyer is haunting her candidacy. The Clintons lay awake night, trying to dream up an angle to make voters forget her "dead broke" bomb.

=================================================

Even more nuclear is that Boobamba's serial incompetence is imperiling Hillary and Democrats. Running in the toxic fallout of a two-term blundering black president is a Sisyphian challenge.

=================================================

The Clintons are relying heavily on "white privilege" to get back into office. The Clintons' have benefitted from, and are climbing back into office, using privileges far beyond those of the "community of color" to whom they plan to appeal.

"White privilege" denotes the array of advantages the Clintons have cultivated over years in public office. The gold-plated, endless perks of "white privilege" include:

<><> their personal massive wealth in the $2 billion range....

<><> ownership of multiple homes in posh enclaves....

<><> the chain of high public offices they've held....

<><> privileged friends in high places....

<><> global connections....

<><> constant affirmations of their own worth....

<><> greater social status...

<><> the expansive freedoms wealth and connections provide...

<><> unlimited access to the press to speak freely.....

<><> their memoirs made millions....

<><> Dec 2000 book deal $8 million; 2014 book deal $14 mill....

<><> three tax-exempt Clinton family foundations worth hundreds of millions....

<><> Clinton foundation "endowment" skyrockets to $200 million overnight....

<><> Hillary's $200,000 speeches.......

<><> Bill's tax-paid cushy pensions/benefits....

<><> tax-paid Clinton Library (Hollywood honey Sultan of Brunei a donor).....

<><> Chelsea's paid-for $10 million uber-condo.

2016 Hillary was relying on the "income equality" bugaboo to hoist herself into office......as good a definition of "white privilege" as any.

The Clintons strategy is to label others as "different" while presenting themselves as "normal." The Clinton "normal" is couple billion dollars laying around without having a real job.

The Never-Enough Clintons had planned to run a populist campaign, critical of the Wall Street types”....that's after the world was informed that speaker Hillary was pocketing $200,000 a throw from Goldman Sachs.....and other corporate giants.

Even though they were "dead broke" (snix), the greedy, mega-wealthy Clintons have money pouring in from everywhere without lifting a finger...said to be worth couple BILLION dollars.

Never-enough Bill/Hillary look to cash in w/ another go-round in the White House. The Clintons owe bigtime......money is pouring into their three tax-exempt foundations......and these donors expect payback.

No way is that number accurate; has to be 10 < at this point. I can’t understand why blacks, except through racial allegiance before justice, continue to support him. Don’t they realize he has now killed the economy, Imported illegals en masse illegally to kill their chances of ever being able to find all job all for the only 12% of children, and that they are no longer important to the Democrat party now that he has. Soon to be much larger brownskins population? If they continue to support him they are not being honest with themselves. He’s got to go.

the press reports what she thinks because the media have decided that she is the front runner for the Democrat nomination for president. If the media ignored her, none of this would be news.

This sort of a fanclub response is not very useful, except in a kind of an echo chamber like Free Republic. Only those of us here believe it (including me). I am sure the inverse opinion is widely held in liberal circles - that Cheney is schooled by Hillary in various and sundry aspects of "Human Rights" etc. because she is much more respected than he is.

Yes, to some extent, the liberals live in a dream world. While the world is falling apart, Obama talks about global warming. Other liberals are pushing homosexual marriage or equal rights for people who have had sex change operations.

there seems to be no sense of perspective or priorities with the liberals.

If they continue to support him they are not being honest with themselves. He’s got to go.

If she gets the nomination, I just hope the GOP plays, and plays, and plays the video of her saying: “What difference does it make!” and then show shots of those who gave their lives so this bitch can stand there an lie about almost everything. The fact that she thinks Obozo is worth defending should disqualify her from seeking office on grounds of insanity.
