Skip to comments.Live Thread: Obama vs. Cheney
Posted on 05/21/2009 7:11:47 AM PDT by kristinn
Obama goes first in a few minutes. He's speaking at the rotunda of the National Archives (you think we could get Nicholas Cage on that birth certificate thingey?) on his Gitmo policy and other man-caused calamities.
Vice President Cheney gets the rebuttal time. He's speaking at the American Enterprise Institute around 10:45 a.m. EDT.
"I have to be honest," is equivalent to a red flag.
I agree with Rubin’s remarks. Imho, Obama is playing legal games.
Obama is a devisive political force in this country. He is not a unifier, but is intent on politicizing and dividing the US.
Furthermore, if we put these terrorists in our prison system, they will attempt to radicalize other prisoners. That is what happened to the four perps who were arrested last night in New York by the FBI. The perps became Muslim and were radicalized in prison.
Holy Crap. “I am not the only person in this city who swore to uphold the Constitution.”
He is so full of sh*t.
Hussein sounds like Oprah, touchy, feeble, and childlike. This is what modern day Americans adore.
They do not know that his real goal is to weaken the US, to reduce US and Israeli power.
Obama is an ass. He is the one along with the Dems who politicized Gitmo. He is the one who released the CIA memos. He is the one who was going to release the photos and then at the last minute, backed down.
Don’t hold back, CC.
Anyone here remember Lynn Stewart and the harm she brought to America. And can anyone explain why she still walks free after her conviction.
I guess she’s O’s pick for the newest terrorists brought to NYC.
He's already worried about the soundbite commercials being used against him!
“He just mentioned Osama..first time since the election....didnt he promise to get him ?...”
I guess he “changed.”
Amazing the loyalty he feels to the Gitmo terrorists.
I am holding back. Sorry.
That oath means something to me.
I think that ‘06 and ‘08 were warning shots.
People were ticked off over the way Republicans spent and governed so they booted their butts to the curb.
Now people are starting to get pissed because the Democrats are Republicans on steroids.
I don’t believe for a second that what Obama is delivering is what the majority of his voters had in mind.
Bring on Cheney.
Everytime he brings up the Constitution, I want to throw up. Words — just words!
During W’s 8 years, I don’t think he ever referred tot he “Clinton administration” by name...every time Zero says Bush, it’s with a sneer..
When did he end interrogation techniques... or rendition for that matter. Where’s the location of the Gitmo replacement, where are the plans?
In case he doesn’t care (as usual), prisoners are being let out of prisons due to overcrowding and lack of state funds.
What he says and what he does are opposites. Very Alinsky.
It doesn’t help that he’s a malignant narcissist.
The plan is to get the jihadis off.
They have truly elected the enemy.
He speaks in front of the constitution at the National Archives. A real kick in the teeth.
I was just about to say that Oprah is president!
I wonder if Obama’s teleprompter got an advance copy of Cheney’s speech so the One could pre-but it? We know we are witnessing criminal minds at work, so I bet his speechwriters have used Cheney’s speech in this one we are watching now.
Obama is making no sense, as usual, because he presents himself as being on both sides of every issue. He often does it in one sentence or one paragraph.
oh he will change his mind tommorrow on everything he said today
And immersing himself in Reverend Wrights poisonous Anti-American, racist diatribes.
How absolutely, utterly stupid...Where's the logic??
And who damned our troops. DEMONRATS every time.
Durbin, Kennedy, Kerry. Ugly traitors.
Obama speaks out of both sides of his mouth. What about the “rule of law” regarding the Chrysler debacle?
I, I, I...me, me, me...my, my, my...I, I, I...it’s all about me!!
His arrogance is absolutely astonishing.
There is no logic.
astute observation, ken.
Now this bozo claims he was never for releasing the torture photos.....oh boy.
Right now, there are about 200 Dem senators and reps who are shitting bricks, because the screws are going to come down on them..Obama is going to call on Congress to support him..
foxnews.com now running a live feed from the AEI venue
I'm so bored...WE WANT CHENEY...WE WANT CHENEY!!!
I’d bring up his COLB but I might get chased out of here. :)
[ ping, and here's the URL so our dialed-up FRiend doesn't have to load the entire thread:
What a little girl. USA elected a fifth grade kenyan blond chick.
DOW dropping as his speech goes on.
Transparency meaning revealing every supposedly damaging bit of information AGAINST the Bush administration.
Damned lying POS
So true. Vice President Cheney should follow up his speech with a call to 0_bama to debate this issue face to face. Of course Pres__ent 0_bama will refuse and it will serve to highlight further how weak he is.
I'm sure he thinks likewise of The Bible.
Now he must make this political theater to respond to the criticism from the Left. He wants it both ways again.
I guess Cheney won’t get the memos he’s seeking...
Yes! Someone mentioned, yesterday, that there is a possibility of terrorists in prisons on US soil being able to control happenings both inside and outside the prisons.
They don't need to escape in order to cause harm. Mob bosses and drug lords organize crimes from within prison.
That would be the Constituion Obama keeps referring too.
Whine, whine, whine. Every screw up Oboma has ever made is always Bush's fault. It's really getting old.
I'll bet up until the very day he was affermatived into the presidency, he blamed his mother for everything, too.
Oboma is such a whiner!
Good. Gad. Wow. Paging Dr. Krauthammer...I'd love his opinion on this performance, and not just on the politics.
I have to say...this is the FIRST time I’ve ever heard Obama sound defensive. He knows he’s in deep sh**.
Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia.
This includes some Democrats as well as Republicans, and increasingly, independent voters, all of whom: want their country back. They want the schools to start teaching - and stop indoctrinating - their children. They want America to make and build things again. They want the government to stop telling them what they can drive and buy and eat. They want politicians to stop taxing and spending their money on things and ideas they detest. They want the government to close the borders and stop subsidizing illegal aliens and criminal behavior. They've had it up to here.
And now, they need a voice, and a leader.
