CHEYENNE, Wyo. -- Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Saturday night that President Barack Obama has jeopardized U.S. national security by nominating substandard candidates for key cabinet posts and by degrading the U.S. military.

"The performance now of Barack Obama as he staffs up the national security team for the second term is dismal," Cheney said in comments to about 300 members of the Wyoming Republican Party.

Cheney, a Wyoming native, said it was vital to the nation's national security that "good folks" hold the positions of secretary of state, CIA director and secretary of defense.

"Frankly, what he has appointed are second-rate people," he said.

Projecting much, Mr. Cheney? Look in the mirror, along with your buddies, Bush and Rumsfeld. You three are the main culprits that got us into, not one, but two un-winnable wars. How many hundreds of thousands have died, and continue to die, thanks to the three of you?

BTW, who was president during 9/11/01? Also, close to 50 people died at diplomatic posts during the Bush administration. Were you and your cronies in Congress outraged about those deaths? Did you drag the Secretaries of Defense and State in front of Congress to testify about those 50 deaths? I think not.

Hypocrisy, thy name is the Republican Party.
