Cheney Said He ‘Didn’t Intend Any Disrespect’ By Accusing Obama Of Treason
Exactly what it would take for Dick Cheney to disrespect someone isn’t clear but, apparently, accusing someone of treason doesn’t qualify.
“In this op-ed, you suggest the president is a fool,” ABC’s Jonathan Karl pointed out during a Sunday interview with Cheney. “That is the word you used, ‘only a fool would take the approach he’s taking in Iraq right now.’”
“It almost seems like you’re accusing the president of treason, that he’s intentionally bringing America ‘down a notch,’” Karl noted.
Cheney did not deny that he had accused the commander-in-chief of the United States of treason, but he insisted that he had not just called Obama a “fool” over the violence in Iraq…
Obama was “decimating the defense budget, not al Qaeda,” Cheney argued.
“Now I don’t intend any disrespect for the president, but I fundamentally disagree with him,” he added. “I think he’s dead wrong in terms of the course he’s taken in this nation, and I think we’re in for big trouble in the years ahead because of his refusal to recognize reality.”
I’d hate to know what kind of language it would take for Cheney to admit he’d disrespected someone.
