It’s not enough to say President Obama’s policies are wrong. That’s not enough of an attack. It has to be stated that President Obama actively wants to “take America down.” Dick and Liz (no, not THAT Dick and Liz) are obsessed with their hatred for our president.

Confronted with a clip of Hussein Obummer warbling his weak song—”I think it’s important to more that Iran’s a complicated country, just like we’re a complicated country”—the freedom hawks swooped in to drop some exceptionalist guano on their enemies’ pate. Liz went first:

I cannot even imagine an American president saying any sentence that has Iran in it and says they’re just like us. I mean, it’s just outrageous… for this president to be in a situation where he’s aligning our policies with those of Iran is just breathtaking and really shameful…

Why was Brak Husayn Obilbobaggins so eager to blow Liberty Central to kingdom come? Dick couldn’t decide, but the consequences were clear:

I vacillate between the various theories I’ve heard, but you know, if you had somebody as president who wanted to take America down, who wanted to fundamentally weaken our position in the world and reduce our capacity to influence events, turn our back on our allies and encourage our adversaries, it would look exactly like what Barack Obama’s doing. I think his actions constitute in my mind those of the worst president we’ve ever had.

      The criticism of this President by low-information ideologues is laughable.

      President Obama’s predecessor in case you have forgotten, was conned into a $1trillion war for weapons that did not exist, by a Baghdad taxi driver. 3,000 people died on American soil on 9/11/2001. Cheney and his boss told us it was not time to point fingers, but we needed to come together as Americans. Great diversion to deflect attention from their negligence and dereliction of duty. Then on 9/11/2012, 4 people died i a country thousands of miles away, and right wing hypocrites demanded investigations, resignations and impeachment.

      The only people I see trying to take America down are spiteful partisan hypocrites like Cheney and you. The rest of us are appreciate that Amerians are no longer dying for nothing in Iraq, that the unemployment rate is just over half of what it was in January 2009, and millions of people have access to health insurance for the first time. If you don’t like it, move to Israel. I am sure that their system of mandatory universal health insurance, and gay people serving openly and proudly in the IDF will make your tiny head explode.

      Yeah, he had a hand in screwing a lot of things up.
      He was among those in the Bush administration who failed in their most important duty by failing to do anything when they received over 100 reports of a massive terrorist attack that would “shake the world” according to one CIA report. So 9/11 happened with our guard down, despite plenty of warning.
      Then. looking at a decade where the CBO projected $11 trillion in surpluses if they just left things alone (enough to pay off the entire national debt and have $2 trillion to play with); Cheney helped push a policy that not only threw away all those surpluses, but took only 2 years to set a new record in size of the deficit.
      Then Cheney was one of those who lied us into a war that has cost us $2 trillion to date and will cost as much in years to come as we take care of all those vets who were injured in various ways in the Iraq war. Over 4,400 Americn lives were part of the cost of their lies.
      That war harmed our national interest as it upset the balance of power in the Gulf, which was where our strategic interest lay. It removed Iran’s counterweight and gave them much influence over their former enemy.
      That war paved the way for the rise of ISIS.
      Cheney was the main player in making our country one in which torture became official policy.
      And when they slinked out of office, they handed off a massive 1.5 trillion deficit and an economy in a tailspin, mired in the worst recession since the Great Depression.

      I hope you mean Chenney with W.

    Why does anyone with an I.Q. in the top half of the double digits listen to this moron? He’s a liar, a war criminal, a 5-time draft dodger and someone who hid his public information from government agencies when asked to turn it over (I.e., the energy council he convened). The only reason he makes any news any more is to attack the President, and since that isn’t news from him, why bother showing his corpulent, smirky face? And besides, isn’t it about time for him to go out and get a new heart from someone, possibly even an organ donor?

    Convicted felony briber Halliburton Cheney falsely projects his GWB admin U.S. record low 19% approval rating with 72% highest disapproval ratings.
    238 Presidential scholars polled annually since 1981: GWB / Cheney worst president of the modern era, bottom five of all time! Jeb / Cheney’16~

    what does it take to short circuit this evil evil man’s electronic life support. He sure does not have a heart .

  8. craig7120 April 9th, 2015 at 11:27 am

    I would simply like to say I will not be lectured by a man who is wanted by the International community for war crimes, who outed a cia agent and who odered the torturing of human beings.

    Cheney has no moral ground

    Sorry Dick, you loser. You’ve already taken America down. Thank goodness the current president is working, and succeeding, at building it back up.

  10. granpa.usthai April 9th, 2015 at 2:22 pm

    GW Bush will go down as the worst Cheney controlled POTUS. (just a matter of time before WORLD Historians catch up to all the corrupt aggression involved in preemptive acts of war that Republicans will not put down on paper.

    Haters and sore losers. They are angry because diplomacy doesn’t send any defense contracts to Halliburton.
