If I had a nickel for every time Dick Cheney contradicted himself:
Vice President Cheney today repeated his charge that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s approach toward the Iraq war would benefit al-Qaeda, saying that he was not trying to impugn the speaker’s patriotism but instead hold her accountable for the consequences of her policies. Continuing a feud that broke out earlier in the week, Cheney said that Democratic proposals to restrict some Iraq war funding – what he dubbed the “Pelosi policy” – would amount to a broad validation of al-Qaeda efforts to undermine America’s will to fight.
What was that? The Pelosi policy? And these fools kept repeating ad nauseam that the Democrats had no policy ideas. OK, we did but Dick Cheney can’t listen to good ideas. It wouldn’t be prudent. Never mind the fact that the stupid decision on 3/19/2003 was seen by Osama bin Laden as a gift from God. Why? It gave bin Laden American boots on the ground in a Muslim land. But Five Deferment Dick doesn’t get that. But we have yet to come to the real howler:
But in a new interview with ABC television on Friday, Cheney said that patriotism had nothing to do with his comments. Instead, he charged Democrats were trying to win public support by criticizing the war without taking responsibility for the repercussions. “She accused me of questioning her patriotism. I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment,” Cheney said during a trip to Australia
Why did we have this Axis of Evil campaign in 2002? Oh yea – the drum up votes for the GOP. And taking responsibility? Dick would never do that! Not for this chaotic and destructive war. Not for all his partisan lies questioning the patriotism of others.
But JUDGMENT? I would not dare question the judgment of Dick Cheney as he has NONE.
Of course – did you notice that big brave Dick didn’t say this to Ms. Pelosi to her face? No, he is way over in Australia as he pops his mouth off again.
Update: Barack Obama has some fun with Dick Cheney’s judgment:
“Now, keep in mind, this is the same guy that said we’d be greeted as liberators, the same guy that said that we’re in the last throes. I’m sure he forecast sun today,” Obama said to laughter from supporters holding campaign signs over their heads to keep dry. “When Dick Cheney says it’s a good thing, you know that you’ve probably got some big problems.”
Yes – it was raining. The old joke is that economists forecast to make the weather man look good. But there is no way to make Cheney look good.
