First off, I was raised a Conservative Republican (not by choice)....I do still have some Conservative views (guns, family, & less gov)....And I am not a supporter of our current Administration. Ron Paul is about the only guy I would halfway "trust" to run this Country.

Having said that, Dick Cheney needs to SHUT UP! All this criticism of our Nation's security is making us APPEAR weaker than I believe we really are. He needs to retire and MSM needs to cut him off. He has the nerve to call our POTUS the Traitor?


Newsweek Story


t's easy to say that Cheney is not significant, that he's just an embittered private citizen with an approval rating well below freezing. But Cheney is not a radio talk-show host or a blowhard congressman who can spout any nonsense without consequence. He served at the top of the American government for eight years and designed the war on terror he now champions. His words are carried all around the world. And those words are now unquestionably harming the national security of the United States. There's nothing wrong with Cheney “politicizing” terrorism. In a democracy, everything should be the subject of public debate. He is entitled to criticize Obama's decision to prosecute CIA interrogators for torture or to put Khalid Sheikh Mohammed on trial in New York City.





It's the dishonest nature of Cheney's harsh attacks on Obama that threaten our safety. Can anyone think of another former president or vice president accusing a sitting president of not defending the country? It's important to distinguish between in-bounds political rhetoric and out-of-bounds lying. Cheney unambiguously lied by saying Obama is "trying to pretend we are not at war," when in fact the president said explicitly in his Inaugural Address and on at least a dozen subsequent occasions that we are at war. Obama's only amendment to the war language has been to drop the "on terror" part. The president, who has sharply stepped up Predator drone attacks on jihadists from the Bush-Cheney years, knows you can't fight a war against a tactic.


Jesse calls him out here- (skip to :35)


Dodged the draft 5 times...

'68 Chicken.

'08-'09-10 Hawk.

The man for all intents and purposes is a traitor. Worse yet, he's inciting attack by overtly stating that we are weak and unprotected!

Time to retire FOR GOOD Dick-

Cheney reminds me of Mr Scrooge or Mr. Burns trying to cheat death.

Maybe when he dies they will keep his head like Futurama and transfigure him into Darth Cheney and send him away on a Death Star.

Not even death will stop Darth Cheney.

Don't like him and probably never will. However somebody needs to point out the holes in the dike. The only way to grow in strength is to point out and eliminate weakness.

I agree, but publicly from a former Vice Prez? If he's that concerned he should offer to advise the current Admin (maybe he has, who knows).

Obama is a TRAITOR and needs to go back to Chicago.
Step 1: Landslide victory for the GOP November 2010. Just 11 months away
for relief and true hope we can believe in.

BTW, Harry Reid is toast also.
Look at all the democrats quitting right now!

You know, I was probably the strongest critic of Bush & Cheney, but to Bush's merit, he knew when to keep his mouth shut and his opinions to himself. I can totally respect that and I find that I don't dislike him as a person as much as I did his policies because of that fact.

Cheney on the other hand seems to have the same problems Palin does with not knowing when to keep quiet and let sleeping dogs lie. Apparently that part of the brain that allows people to think without speaking so that World+Dog can't hear their innermost thoughts must be malfunctioning in them both.

However, lest I sound like I'm dissing Cheney (and Palin) specifically, they aren't the only ones that need to shut up. Just about every Pundit and "Security Specialist" that goes on Radio or TV really needs to do likewise. Not to mention a finger has to be pointed at all of those who tune in and pay them attention in the first place.

Perhaps the Silent Treatment that we would use in Grade School would work on people like this. If everyone just ignores them, maybe they'll go away.

Charge Cheny with Treason. I believe it may have been Thomas Jefferson whom shot a man on the white house lawn for treason.

Treason punishable by death? Yay? or Nay?

Treason is a crime punishable by death. The problem as I see it ,is that all the elected officals and their underlings are culpable. Instead of a firing squad it would take a daisy cutter to dole out the sentance.

I think some elected officials have to swear to uphold the consitution.

Then those officials without knowing go against what they just swore to uphold and some knowingly go against it.

Perjury with a dash of Treason, sounds tastey.....

Ron Paul speaks on Cheney-

politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com...


"I think he had his eight years, and he's caused a lot of trouble for our country and perpetuated a war in Iraq unnecessary and wrong-headed," said Paul. "I would say it would be best he not be so critical right now." Paul was a constant critic of the Iraq war during his unsuccessful presidential run. While he is currently not seeking a higher office, his son, Rand, is seeking the Republican nomination for Senate in Kentucky. Paul's comments come several days after Cheney released a tough-worded statement criticizing the president's response to the attempted terrorist attack on Christmas Day. "He seems to think if he gives terrorists the rights of Americans, lets them lawyer up and reads them their Miranda rights, we won't be at war," Cheney said in the statement. "He seems to think if we bring the mastermind of 9/11 to New York, give him a lawyer and trial in civilian court, we won't be at war. He seems to think if he closes Guantanamo and releases the hard-core al Qaeda trained terrorists still there, we won't be at war."' White House Communications Director Dan Pffeifer later responded the president "is not interested in bellicose rhetoric, he is focused on action."

Well if the current administration would stop blaming the last one maybe it would be practical. However Team O needs to have someone laying down a reality check! Since your so upset that Cheney is criticizing the current administration I gotta ask, when was the last time you heard a sitting potus blaming the last potus for events that happened on their watch?

Perhaps Cheney will "shut up" when Jimmy Carter, who has made some borderline comments and actions himself, finally realizes that his failed presidency has long been over. Don't expect that anytime soon.

Wow Get out you disinfo agent.

If you had a brain you would realize Cheny is just as bad as Bush Jr. and is guilty of crimes against humanity....like genocide.

Unless you are being sarcastic, which is hard to tell cause you can't hear tone of voice.

Do you have proof of his guilt or are just spouting hate filled rhetoric?

Do you even know what genocide is?

I agree 100% this guy is not a patriot he is a liar and thief. I am a conservative but he does not represent me at all. I think he should stand trial for his crimes. This is not a left vs. right thing it is a wrong vs. right thing the facts do not lie.
