Cheney said Hagel, a former Nebraska U.S. senator, was chosen because Obama “wants to have a Republican that he can use to take the heat for what he plans to do to the Department of Defense.”

He said Obama’s plans are to allow severe cuts in U.S. defense spending, which would limit the capability of the U.S. military to respond to future foreign crises well after Obama has left office.

14. The comments are real sewer!

Very very right wing. It is like entering an alien universe - where Cheney and Rumsfeld are defined as being honest and honorable!

15. Cheney says 'take the heat,' I say 'share the credit.'

I hope for once in his life he's correct. It is long past time that our bloated military budget takes a trimming.
