Put down the partisanship, and step away from Brand Cheney.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney reminds everyone he’s older than Satan by whipping out the word “dithering” in an attempted criticism of his cousin President Barack Obama.
The five time Vietnam War draft dodger Cheney criticized Obama during a speech Wednesday to the 15 or so neocons at The Center for Security Policy who still give a crap about what he says. He described Obama as “dithering” and “waffling” in Afghanistan.
Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) distanced himself from Cheney’s remarks, and Ohio’s bitchin’ Senator Sherrod Brown (D) notes:
To listen to Dick Cheney who was the mastermind of the most failed decade of foreign policy that this country has had at least in my political lifetime, perhaps my whole lifetime, perhaps my parents lifetime, too, [perhaps since humans invented politics]–I mean to listen to him when he talked about “dithering,” and their mistake was to attack Iraq and lose sight of Afghanistan…just take Dick Cheney’s advice off the table.”
Obama’s eighth cousin once removed and Cheney’s spawn, Liz is the only one that seems to be into her dad. She had a post on her website KeepAmericaSafe.com about Papa Evil no sooner than he uttered the words. Columnist David Corn is wondering why the Cheneys are helping Obama.
UPDATE: Ha! Conservative columnist George Will suggests Dick should have dithered before going into Iraq. I’m telling you, Cheney has cooties.
