Cheney Lashes out at Obama on missing Intelligence briefings.

After reading the NY Times article on how Bush and Cheney fucked up or let it happened on 9ll I thought this headline I saw was an Onion article, but noooo





Its from the Daily Caller so I'll just give a link
if you want to verify it. If you go there read the comments if you can take living in Bizzaro world history.

Bush and Cheney should be in jail .

2. Quality over quantity

So, Cheney attended all briefings for 7 years and didnt get OBL. Obama did 43% and got OBL in less than 2 years. He did it with intelligent thinking and effective time management. Cheney failed and needs to live with the judgment of history.

5. Bullshit...Obama did not do "43%" - he did them all

The "43%" bullshit number is based on a completely fictitious analysis by a conservative imbecile. Obama gets the PDB um daily.

3. Obama doesn't miss intelligence briefings

Thanks, Daily Caller, but try again.

Obama always receives a PDB per Carney, who laughed at the initial "analysis" and the vapid opinion piece about it. You forgot to mention that part.

The fact that Cheney's chiming in on this is even more pathetic. Gawd, their internals must be downright awful.

34. Well, that's the point, really. I suspect Cheney is quoted in The Caller BECAUSE nobody reads it

except right wing nutcases.

Sometimes these people just talk to the most obscure right wing corner of the media in the hopes that only their base will see it, because it would do more damage than good if it was in the mainstream media.

The fact is that every time Cheney opens his mouth it gives Obama a boost.
So, our job should be to make sure this story makes it IN TO the mainstream!

36. Maybe, or maybe we should just let him fade into obscurity.

 

Of course, just my responding keeps the thread kicked, so I'm doing as you suggest in some small part. However, I've had enough of the fucking traitor in my life without having a heart attack of my own, so I'd really rather not hear from or about him unless and until he is being tried for warcrimes and treason. You guys can carry on, though; I'm not trying to stop you.

12. The Pot calling the kettle Black

If Bush/Cheney had not had their head up their asses, we wouldn't be having this discussion. We all know who screwed up. The Daily Caller is a right wing rag associated with Tucker Carlson fame. So, we know there is no credibility there.

13. Cheney who let it happen either through incompetence or will, then ran like a scared dog

to his 'undisclosed secure location' for months on end? That Cheney? He's a coward as well as a stooge or a villain, history will tell us which, but those are the choices, stooge or villain.

14. "By contrast, Obama’s predecessor,"

George W. Bush, almost never missed his daily intelligence meeting.” In which (I imagine) he drooled constantly and caught flies with his tongue.

37. I heard this talking point on RW radio a few days ago

and saw it as a way to water down (pun intended) the 9/11- Bin Laden is dead obvious truth AND it scared me that they were setting the President up IF something happened today.

....fuck my lucky stars, Dick "Motherfucking Dick" Cheney rears his ass up and shits the latest howler. Say, fuckstain, how many of those briefings prior to 9/11 urged you and Two Shoes McClown to take action against the growing threat?

Answer, fucktard, apparently none, you fusion of c**ksucker.

Die now you fucking asswipe.

1. A conservative think tank
2. A conservative web site
3. Former VP Dick Cheney

And this story breaks on 9/11 -- the very day that the Bush regimes's failure to read intelligence reports came back to haunt it? Seriously?

Back into your cave, Dick.

22. Darth should be thankful

his ass isn't rotting in a cell in at a prison parked in the middle of a desert. His lifelong accumulation of wealth and power has kept him on the wrong side of the bars. He needs to STFU and cease reminding the country of his failure as the puppet master.

23. The irony of this is astounding

They missed 9/11. Missed it. Obama is the only president in a long time to have no foreign terrorist attacks on our soil. Plus, he got Osama bin Laden. I think even idiots will recognize that Cheney is being absurd here. The audacity is unreal.

Most of the time while he was president?
How could he take the PDB seriously, if he was too busy with yard work?

Dubya, Rummy, Condie, Tenet, the Chair and Vice Chair of the Joint Chiefs are all listed on the WH website as being present for what Dubya called "the longest meeting . . . on a very important subject" . . . but, where was Cheney?

See,

32. So the man who was the shadow president

the man who ran the puppet in the WH, the man who ignored every warning, the man fixated on enriching his stock portfolio by attacking Iraq for oil, the man who shot his own friend in the face, the man who grimaced his way through office, the man who fenced the first amendment into free speech zones...

That evil son of a bitch has the nerve to get someone to kickstart his heart so he can rise from the dead once again to scare babies and kick kittens...that rat bastard adult diaper load of elephant excrement...that pustule on the body politic...that vomit faced weasel...that radioactive pond scum sucking shitheel...









Thanks Swamp Rat for these toxic reminders of the Cheney years.

I don't ever recall hearing a soundbite or seeing a video clip where Obama says "I killed OBL."

I'll be happy to see any such evidence.....
