It's a classic case IMHO of projecting his own failures.
HE is the one who failed to protect the country!
HE is the one who f#$ked up.
HE is the one who sold his soul.
Whatever humanity he has left within him knows this is true and he's feeling something about what he's done and his mind cannot deal with it; so he rejects it by blaming the current administration. He projects his own failures onto them.
I'm a political atheist and I'm not saying the current admin is great. Just that you're right . And Dick Insaney is projecting .
This is not about politics, it's about a man that is bitter over his failures....blaming the new guy....and encouraging more terrorism by exposing our weaknesses that he helped create!
Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) took a shot at Dick Cheney last night, saying the former Vice President wasn't in any position to be criticizing President Obama. "Well, I think he had his eight years and he's caused a lot of trouble for our country and he perpetuated a war in Iraq that was unnecessary and wrong-headed," Paul said of Cheney on CNN's Larry King Live. "So I would say that it would be best he not be so critical right now." Paul was quick to add that he doesn't necessarily support Obama's policy, which he sees as a continuation from the last administraiton. "'They'--they are going to attack us and they've declared war against us. And it's always 'they' and 'them.' But -- but who are they?"

...are you KIDDING!?!?!
Is that GW Bush - Bush TWO, Junior, DUBYA we're talking about!?!?
Yea cos that "I believe human being and fish can co-exist peacefully" comment was acutely judged, right?
As was "Mission Accomplished".
Oh yea and "I was outside the classroom when I saw the first plane fly into the tower onTV..."
That's right, Bush knew when to keep his mouth shut.
While I actually agree with most of your post, THAT, was well and truly misguided. At best.

Reply to OP,
I’m old enough to have lived through nine presidential administrations. Not once in all that time can I remember an administration threatening to go back and prosecute a previous presidential administration. Especially not for just doing there JOB protecting the American people and saying to hell with any other country that has a problem with that.
Dick Chaney is doing what any one left in this country with balls would do. Defend his good name and the president he served under. You can say what you want about these two guys but remember one thing, after 911 they identified the treat then acted quickly and decisively to eliminate it. Sure mistakes were made. (IE: Donald Rumsfeld) but they did what needed to be done at the time. O and Iraq? Screw them one less A-hole to deal with later on.
During the first year of Obama’s presidency he has blamed the bush administration for all the worlds’ problems and truly believes that if he just talks nicely nice to the bad guys he could get them to stop trying to kill us. And they said Bush was an idiot.
Chaney just calls it as he sees it and I think he is on the mark with this one.

Gotta agree. I mean it was perfectly fine to question any an everything President Bush did, but to question obama? How dare you!

So when a Republican president is in office, it's okay for democrats to criticize him to the maximum, but when a Democratic president is in office, Republicans have to shut up? It works both ways pal. Don't dish it out of you can't take it.
