WeatherDem: Shut Up Already, Cheney


Dick “Puppet-Master” Cheney is one of the most immoral persons on this planet.  It appears he has more in common with Balloon Boy’s dad than I had previously imagined: he just can’t stand being out of the spotlight.  Seriously, what happened in this guy’s childhood home that he has to invade foreign nations, destroy economies and societies, then feels it necessary to lecture other Presidents when they don’t do the same?

Cheney wants President Obama to stop ‘dithering’ on Afghanistan.

Well I want Cheney to shut up.  He has no credibility with this nation or with any other nation on this planet.

“Make no mistake. Signals of indecision out of Washington hurt our allies and embolden our adversaries,” Cheney said.

No, dumbass, our adversaries are emboldened because we’re occupying two Muslim nations with no plans to get out completely of either.  They’re emboldened because we continue to bomb residents of those countries who aren’t fighting us.  I know for a fact that Cheney’s daughter Liz would take up arms against a country that occupied the U.S. and bombed her father’s house.  It’s the same thing.  And the fact that he isn’t man enough to admit that to this country tells you all you need to know about his so-called “patriotism”.  Which is why he continues to make a fool of himself.

Other obscene snippets:

He said the administration seems to be pulling back and blaming others for its own failure to implement the strategy it had embraced earlier in the year.

Is the Cheney administration blaming others or is the Obama administration?

And it certainly is not a good sign when the Justice Department is set on a political mission to discredit, disbar, or otherwise persecute the very people who helped protect our nation in the years after 9/11.

This from the asshole who committed treason when he leaked the identity of an undercover CIA agent to a right-wing rag.  This from the hypocrite who led the politicization of the DoJ by firing personnel when their actions didn’t fall in line with his psychotic, fringe world-view.


[Update]: A diary with more links that I chose to provide can be found here.  From that diary, we have this comment from Gen. Paul Eaton (Ret.):

The record is clear: Dick Cheney and the Bush administration were incompetent war fighters. They ignored Afghanistan for 7 years with a crude approach to counter-insurgency warfare best illustrated by: 1. Deny it. 2. Ignore it. 3. Bomb it. While our intelligence agencies called the region the greatest threat to America, the Bush White House under-resourced our military efforts, shifted attention to Iraq, and failed to bring to justice the masterminds of September 11.
The only time Cheney and his cabal of foreign policy ‘experts’ have anything to say is when they feel compelled to protect this failed legacy. While President Obama is tasked with cleaning up the considerable mess they left behind, they continue to defend torture or rewrite a legacy of indifference on Afghanistan. Simply put, Mr. Cheney sees history throughout extremely myopic and partisan eyes.

  1. I no likey the word “dither”. It’s right up there for me ‘pithy’.

    I must have a problem with the ‘th’ sound.

    Or Cheney.

    Maybe both.

  2. I didn’t like the use of “dither” either. Now that you mention it, “pithy” is pretty similar, isn’t it?

    When Cheney says it, it comes across as … belittling and juvenile. Grrr…
