Comments on: Cheney touches a nerve at the White House http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/08/31/cheney-touches-a-nerve-at-the-white-house/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: TC http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/08/31/cheney-touches-a-nerve-at-the-white-house/comment-page-1/#comment-396639 Fri, 04 Sep 2009 22:50:34 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=19607#comment-396639 getplaning. Here’s the deal with your “quote”. Most congressional democrats, both Clintons, PM Blair, President Putin…you get the point…all agreed and gave speeches (which are on the record) saying Saddam Hussein had WMDs and that he needed to be dealt with. Iraq was supported by both parties in congress and the American people. So, please stop with your half truth (I have no faith in your ability to do so…) it doesn’t tell the whole story.

Also, I believe Cheney and already stated the Bush administration has kept us safe, so that is proof enough for me. We haven’t been attacked…It is your job to prove he is wrong, but you wont’ be able to…Just like this adminstration isn’t able to prove anything and story keeps dying…They and you have nothing…nothing at all!

Just remember, over 3000 American “civilians” died in a few hours by being attacked on 9/11. That has never happened in our country before. It hasn’t happened again because of the policies of the Bush administration.

If you don’t want to see the truth, then that’s fine. But you can only respond with half truths…No problem, you left wingers are all alike…

To borrow a bit of text from someone else’s post above,

–Most people recall the Bush/Cheney era a little differently. Cheney thinks it was a sterling success when it came to national security and counter-terrorism. After all, except for the catastrophic events of 9/11, and the anthrax attacks against Americans who opposed the Iraq war, and terrorist attacks against U.S. allies, and the terrorist attacks against U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Bush’s inability to capture those responsible for 9/11, and waging an unnecessary war that inspired more terrorists, and the success terrorists had in exploiting Bush’s international unpopularity, the Bush/Cheney record on counter-terrorism was awesome.–

They not only did not “keep you safe”, they continued to terrorize you with false terror alerts and reports of “terror plots” that were set-ups of hapless fools who couldn’t find the right end of a match, let alone start a fire. You still have yet to tell us what truth Cheney is speaking. I think you know the reason why, but don’t have the guts to admit it.

Cheney was there, he knows the facts. He is speaking the facts. Gibbs doesn’t know the facts, but he did answer will a clear dig to the former Vice President. I know I have made my point with you. Gibbs wouldn’t have said a word if he stood on a position of strength. He wouldn’t have to if Cheney was wrong. But, as you know, he gave a pretty stupid response (normal for this guy…worse press secretary ever…) and that is not acceptable.

You once again twist the argument around, because you don’t have an argument to disprove Cheney.

Here is the truth. We have not been attacked since 9/11. I attribute that to Bush and Cheney and I owe them a debt of gratitude for keeping me and my family safe. That is his whole point…it’s all about keeping the American people safe. He shouldn’t back down from doing the right thing….and he hasn’t.

Of course Gibbs has to answer, and his answer is the truth. Cheney has been wrong about everything, and has a habit of making things up, so why take him seriously? But I have a question for you, TC. What truth does Dick Cheney speak? You haven’t made any points at all, other than blubbering about Obama’s 49% approval rating.

He is speaking the truth, which I have made clear. If Cheney were not a threat, then they would not speak to anything he says…PERIOD! You cherry picked Gibbs statement, like you do everything. You stay away from the information you know is the truth. So, go ahead and divert the attention away from the facts…Cheney speaks the truth. The administration has nothing…nothing at all.

Cheney is a laughingstock, as are the dead-enders who still believe in aluminum tubes and mushroom clouds.

The White House and left reacts because they know Cheney is speaking the truth.

It all yields nothing for the liberals, like you. I notice how you are staying away from the story about the low Obama poll numbers. Like I have said many time before and say now, you cherry pick and twist the information to appear you are correct. However, you have nothing…nothing at all.

The White House didn’t ignore the questions. Gibbs made sure he did the liberal thing, he put in a dig. Just couldn’t resist. So, if Cheney wasn’t telling the truth, then it would have been ignored…Period! It wasn’t ignored. And Gibbs can say all he wants about the facts, he doesn’t support anything…just puts in a dig…That’s all he and the White House has. Along with the liberals who are out to destroy people…They have a long history of trying, but not much success.

So Cheney goes on FOX? Okay, sounds like what all people do when they go on any news program on any station. FOX doesn’t go on Cheney. That’s exactly what your statement was implying and it made no sense whatsoever….None!

Anyway, Cheney is right to speak out against the lies being perpetrated by the liberals and that Attorney General who keeps running into a brick wall because he has nothing…Nothing at all…

As the article above states, Cheney goes on Fox to criticize the Obama administration, not the other way around. When the press gaggle asks Robert Gibbs what the White House thinks about Cheney’s sniping, his response is, “He has been wrong about everything else, so why should we care?” You can’t argue with people who make up their own facts, so what’s the point?
