Don’t look at us creating huge government over here, look over there at Cheney’s “failures” instead…
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Obama administration issued a scathing response on Monday to criticism from former Vice President Dick Cheney, calling him part of a “Republican cabal” and saying his economic advice should be ignored.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs used his daily briefing to ridicule Cheney, who said in a CNN interview that President Barack Obama‘s revamped policies on terrorism suspects would make the United States more vulnerable to attack.
“I guess Rush Limbaugh was busy so they trotted out the next most popular member of the Republican cabal,” Gibbs said in a sarcastic tone, referring to the conservative radio talk-show host whom Obama’s fellow Democrats have depicted as the new leader of the Republicans.
The media and the Democrats, both one and the same, are of course trying to focus those ignorant within the US borders on attempting to position Rush Limbaugh as the spokesman for the Republican party. These antics are ridiculous and only serve to prove that the media has become a shill for the liberal party, and the liberal party has nothing but a figurehead to point to and say “is this who you want running your country” ?
President Obama is making the US less safe now, how?
“The president has made quite clear that keeping the American people safe and secure is the most serious job that he has each and every day,” Gibbs said in defending Obama’s decisions.
He ordered the closing within a year of the internationally condemned Guantanamo Bay military prison in Cuba and an end to harsh interrogation of terrorism suspects held there.
Yes, I feel “safer” already. Recall that there wasn’t a single terrorist attack on US soil after 9/11, that may soon change thanks to the liberal parties new lax stance on terrorism.
It all comes down to this, big government, more Democrat voters.
Asked about Cheney’s suggestion that the White House was trying to take advantage of the economic crisis to expand government, Gibbs said, “I think not taking economic advice from Dick Cheney would be maybe the best possible outcome of yesterday’s interview.”
Then of course the last bit of proof that what Cheney did, was the right thing:
Cheney, who under Bush became one of the most powerful vice presidents, had championed tough interrogation methods implemented after the September 11 attacks of 2001, and was also an architect of the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
“He is making some choices that, in my mind, will, in fact, raise the risk to the American people of another attack,” Cheney, in Sunday’s interview, said of Obama.
Gibbs pushed back hard on that point. “For seven-plus years, the very perpetrators that the vice president says he’s concerned about weren’t brought to justice,” he said.
“Perpetrators being brought to justice”?? Yes, they were in jail, now they will not be. You call that “a more secure America”?
Already we have been setting terrorists free from Guantanamo. They go back on the streets, and commit their crimes against humanity…again. Thanks liberals.
