When Can We Start Calling Him a Traitor?
My, how times have changed.
Remember the OUTRAGE — the spittle flying, heads-spinning-of the-shoulders like an out-of-balance washing machine rage and anger by the Right-wingnuts when both Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton spoke out against the illegal and un-American policies of the Bush Administration? The Right was calling for their execution, if not life in prison for publicly speaking out against an administration “during the time of war.”
Now we have Dick Cheney getting more camera face time in the past 120 days than his entire eight-year term in his undisclosed hidey-hole, and what is he doing? He is continuing to verbally attack the Obama Administration by saying President Obama is endangering the nation and making it more vulnerable to terrorist attack.
Mr. Cheney said that administration’s dismantling of many of the policies and protections instituted by President George W. Bush after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks including the planned closing of the Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba and halting controversial prisoner interrogation techniques have made the country more vulnerable to future attacks.

We wouldn’t BE in this predicament if it hadn’t been for the Bush/Cheney policies over the past eight years. At no other time in our history had we been so “vulnerable” to attack. A prime example being when Cheney okayed the Abu Ghraib treatment of prisoners, and the news got out about those details, “Arab Street” opinion soured on us, and violence spiked and stayed there for years. It can easily be argued that Nick Berg and the four “Contractors” who were dismembered and hung from a bridge were a direct response to Cheney and Rumsfeld personally ordering the Abu Ghraib treatment.
Guantanamo? Yet another outrage directed towards us.
Never mind that Cheney worked overtime to get an unnecessary war started and going in Iraq, when we really should have been focusing on Afghanistan.
Do we need to remind him about outing a CIA agent? Fixing gas and oil prices? Performing illegal torture techniques so he can get his fossilized rocks off?
Somebody please operate a microwave around this worthless sack of skin.
