I have had it with the neocon nonsense. The latest may have started with Dick Cheney:
Cheney also had harsh words for Democratic leaders, including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Jack Murtha, D-Pa., who says he wants to stop the surge of more U.S. troops into Iraq. Cheney said Pelosi and other Democrats were pushing a policy in Iraq that would “validate the al Qaeda strategy.” “I think if we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Murtha are suggesting, all we’ll do is validate the al Qaeda strategy,” Cheney told ABC News.
When he did, I yawned as this is standard faire for foul-mouthed, dishonest, draft dodging POS who is rich only because he defrauded the shareholders of Halliburton with Andersen’s assistance and he milked the defense procurement “rules” he designed as DoD secretary (incidentally, why would one choose a draft dodger to run the Defense Department). But the bully didn’t expect a Madame Speaker to hit back:
Vice President Cheney continues to question the patriotism of those of us in Congress who challenge the Bush Administration’s misguided policies in Iraq, but his latest attack is beneath the office of the Vice President, especially at a time of war. Mischaracterizations by the Vice President will not dissuade Congress from developing, on a bipartisan basis, a responsible new direction for U.S. policy in Iraq that brings our troops home safely and soon. I hope the President will repudiate and distance himself from the Vice President’s remarks.
Ouch! Given that Five Deferment Dick is a coward, he needed some help from the White House Deputy Press Secretary Dana Perino
QUESTION: Was he at all out of line in making those comments?
PERINO: The Vice President out of line? Absolutely not. He was questioning the merits of the – of their proposal.
Sorry for the sexist line – but President Bush has to send one woman out as another woman was standing up to the lying POS we have to endure as Vice President. While that’s pathetic enough (I guess we now know why Vietnam Vets never wanted to serve side by side with the coward known as Dick Cheney). But think about the phrase “merits” as in the merits of the stupidest decision ever made – the one on March 19, 2003 to invade Iraq. Two things are clear – Al Qaeda was revived. And Iran is king of the hill in the Middle East. I would suspect most Americans would think of Al Qaeda is an enemy and this Iranian government is not exactly the ally of most rational Americans. And yet, George W. Bush has given both a huge upper hand in accomplishing their goals. Am I questioning the patriotism of George W. Bush? Am I calling him a traitor? OK, I’m not using the weasel words of Dana Perino. I am questioning the patriotism of that terrorist we have to endure as President for the next couple of years.
Memo to Dick Cheney: next time Nancy Pelosi comes after you, might I suggest standing behind the skirts of a gal who knows how to fight.
