Disregarding the 9-11 intel and attacking a country that had nothing to do with 9-11 did not weaken America.
10 years of spilled blood and treasure did nothing.
Let's not forget what ruined this country when the first Bush tax cuts were being debated, according to Dick, "deficits don't matter."
Team Cheney and Bush weakened America so bad that Obama got in.
Sadly, Joe Biden would not have made it through an interview of that length without making some rude or mindless comments. Here is D. Cheney years after the fact and he is still a gentleman and he still articulates the woes of this nation so well. OBTW, G.W. stays out of the limelight because he is still twice the man as presbo. He exhibits more class and care in the work he does behind the scenes as a voice for wounded warriors than does the narcissist-in-chief with the slobbering press fawning over his every move. Obama could announce tonight that he is going to commence bombing N. Korean nuke facilities and the fawning press would instantly christen him the brave leader of the free world...pahleeeaaassse.
The only debate over the effectiveness of enhanced interrogation techniques is between liberals who are in denial of reality and intelligent people.
I like Cheney but people need to remember that he is part of the cabal that got this country to where it is now. He is strong and independent in some areas and overall a good man but he is also big government establishment Republican.
I also do not see how any conservative that touts the constitution can be for drones snuffing Americans. How can a man as educated as Cheney not see the potential misuse and abuse of this drone program? Why is he not concerned with the undeclared war the drone program is waging? What has happened to the rule of law in this country?
I have a lot of questions for Mr. Cheney.
*I'm tired of people from non border states lecturing me about the border and what I have to accept as well. When you have watched entire towns turn into a third world country, when you have watched ghettos spring up in every town big and small, when you have watched crime sky rocket, when you have seen your paycheck evaporate so an illegal can stand in line in the grocery store and buy crap you cannot afford, when you have seen your children get shunted aside because they are not the right color when their ancestors literally built this country for them, when you have been turned down for a job because you are not a minority nor speak a foreign language IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY...then lecture me on what I have to accept.
*Be aware I can triple that list. I guarantee you there are way more than 11 million illegals here. Count on it.
This overall interview is yet another example of the media picking out party leaders, Take note of the names continually tossed out there by Charlie Rose. Cantor a leader? Really? Cantor is going to be lucky to hang on to his seat.
I've been saying for years it's more like 40~50 million illegals living in the US! But the news can't say that it might "scare" some real Americans.
Not that they should, but definitions of conservative vs liberal change. Cheney to me wasn't conservative , but he was pro American. Compared to progressives and Marxists like Obama and a_holes like Biden, I would be OK with Cheney, and feel like I won the jackpot:)
I understand that anyone looks fabulous compared to Obama and a lot of others but Cheney is a big government Republican and is one of many cogs in our society that opened the door to the radical left.
Remember the politics of yesterday and the go along to get along people that have been in there for decades.
Whenever I think of Dick Cheney, his oldest daughter comes to mind, Liz Cheney. Liz is even more conservative than her father and I think Liz would make an awesome President!
This article spells out exactly what Obama is doing. Hint: it has been done before in history with success. Please read, it really sums up everything happening really well. Pass it on.
After years of the MSM lying, obscuring, excusing, ignoring and promoting candidate Obama for the position of President of the United States, we have this:
"A Conversation with Tom Brokow and Charlie Rose"
10/30/08, a week before his first election.
R. I don't know what Barack Obama's worldview is.
B. No. I don't either
R. I don't know how he really sees where China is.
B. We don't know a lot about Barack Obama and the universe of his thinking about foreign policy.
R. I don't really know. And do we know anything about the people who are advising him?
B. Yeah, it's an interesting question.
R. He is principally known through his autobiography and through very aspirational (sic) speeches.
B. Two of them! I don't know what books he's read.
R. What do we know about the heroes of Barack Obama?
B. There's a lot about him we don't know.
This exchange, Nationally televised, should tell all there is to know about the Lions of Liberalism that are steering this country into an abyss of defeat and despondency. How dare Rose speak to Cheney with that air of condensation and accusation.
"He won the election but I do think the man is doing serious, serious long term damage to the country"
Well said Mr Cheney. You put the whole administration, along with the MSM, in a nutshell.
He was a REAL vice president, not a clown like the current VP. obama continues to surrount himself with half-wits (Chuck Hagel) and blowhard (John Kerry).
So real that this draft dodger lied and got us into Iraq.
He cannot even travel out of this country, he would be arrested.
Because Dick Cheney doesn't have to stammer or stutter or weigh his answers. His conservatism is instinctual borne of reason instead of fabricated to placate a certain voting block.
Cheny is right:
"DRUDGE_REPORT STATE OF THE UNION: 11,629 MORE GO ON FOOD STAMPS EACH DAY... "
Obama is a foreign operative, intentionally destroying our nation to rebuild a collectivist Islamofascist state.
Cheney also said he wants illegals to become citizens. What will happen to the welfare program, SS and Medicare then.
He is supporting Rubio who put forward George Bush's amnesty plan. And then this from the Daily Caller calls Rubio out on his amnesty con job. http://dailycaller.com/2013/02/13/rubios-anti-sotu-dissembles-on-amnesty/
"I think they are moving in the right direction" "I'm a big fan of Marco Rubio"
Q: Pathway to citizenship
A: I think that's basically where you're headed. You've got to have some kind of, of, ultimate resolution.
He also admitted this was a priority of George Bush.
So, under Bush and Cheney, America wasn't liked in the world. Charlie - under Obama we are loved? We are respected? Our allies really trust us? Al Queda is no more?
Charlie Rose - you didn't deserve to be in such company as Dick Cheney
Given that the questions all derive from a left leaning perspective, Dick Cheney still remains a stalwart advocate for what the Republican party platform claims to represent. It is such a shame some or most of our elected representatives have discarded or diluted the platform to the same degree they have watered down our constitution.
VP is looking better since his transplant. Long life to him. As to Charlie Rose and his assistant hostess/spokesman for Obama pretending to be a news reporter...you both got your heads stuck way too far up Obama's a$$.
THX U, VP Cheney. We need our republican leaders to speak out against this President whenever possible. I just wish that GWB would be more of a voice for republicans like Bill Clinton is for democrats. Republicans did that right now.
GWB respects historic precedent when not speaking out. Clinton is just a ego filled punk, married to the wicked witch of the east. Both are lying POS.
I agree, notsofastthere. But can't you see that president is now important right now, at this point in history. We have a tyrannical like President and we need those voices of reason to reverberate across this country. Cheney has lots of credibility so does Donald Rumsfield. These are the stalwart voices in the republican party, along with a few others.
If it would help, I'm all for it. Bush is an honest man, but so maligned and not exactly the best spontaneous speaker to defend causes.
We are dealing with very evil people in this administration and we need some serious attack dogs who know how to fight while clearly education the moron voters. Repub Party doesn't need a conversation, they need the constitution enforced to save this country. We need the fight brought directly to Obama's anti-American idocy.
In my dreams Dick Cheney runs for President. I know he would never do it, and he couldn't win because of all the "weak kneed" in this country, but I think he would be excellent as President.
If I remember, the Republicans in 2008 were not clammering for Cheney, but for McCain, Huckster, and Romney.
We should have realized then, that the R's are not us.
When you look at Biden, a semi-illiterate redneck with the class of a $5 hooker working for crack and Dick Cheney, it is easy to see how much of a detriment to our country the corrupt mainstream media as been. They crucified Cheney from Day One and give a complete pass to Biden, a babbling fool that is an embarrassment to anyone above a single digit IQ.
A pic is worth a 1,000 words.... http://www.therightscoop.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/653212087.jpg
It is time to stop blaming the MSM for R's problems winning general elections. We can help ourselves by nominating electable candidates. Biden's follies have been widely covered, reported and joked about. Cheney recived tons of attention related to his unique take on VP power, pushing for an Iraq 2 war and torture.
I have always thought that Dick Cheney shows class and self-control and gives thought to his answers. He does not seem interested in whether he impresses or his answers impress. We need these qualities in our leaders.
