Un-FRIKKIN-believable. Cheney ties Lieberman loss to al Qaeda.
Cheney: Lieberman Loss Disturbing Because al Qaeda Is Betting They Can Break The Will of The American People

http://thinkprogress.org/2006/08/10/cheney-ct /



As the Mideast sits on the brink of regional war, Vice President Dick Cheney spent his time yesterday holding a teleconference to discuss the outcome of the Democratic Senate primary in Connecticut.

Cheney said that to purge a man like Joe Lieberman was of concern, especially over the issue of Joes support with respect to national efforts in the global war on terror. He explained:

The thing thats partly disturbing about it is the fact that, the standpoint of our adversaries, if you will, in this conflict, and the al Qaeda types, they clearly are betting on the proposition that ultimately they can break the will of the American people in terms of our ability to stay in the fight and complete the task.

Cheneys argument assumes that the war in Iraq is helping the United States defeat terrorists. Hes wrong. His own State Department found last April that Iraq had become a safe haven for terrorists and attracted a foreign fighter pipeline linked to terrorist plots, cells and attacks throughout the world. An overwhelming bipartisan majority (84%) of national security experts believe we are losing the war on terror, and 87 percent think Iraq has had a negative impact.

7. There is no lie to blatant or too stupid for this man, is there?
He just knows that Joe would vote against holding the investigation that Miss Clio told me she sees in Dick's future.

18. I just wonder who nods in agreement to this crap...
...that's the REAL "unbelievable" aspect, I guess. Not the fact that Cheney said it...after all, who'd expect anything else. But somewhere, a freeper is reading this tripe and saying "Fuckin' A, Mr. Vice President, Fuckin' A..."

:silly:

12. Well, geez Dick. If you love Joe so much, recruit him to take
Rummy's spot. Anything's better than Rummy and it would get Joe out of our hair.

15. I think the Republicans are right..

I think the time is right to go ahead and install the 4th fooking reich. Why fight it? You know what is going to happen...first dark people, then communists, then socialists, then those in a union, gays, gypsies, scientists, and college educators, and anyone who dares speaks ill of the Fuhrer.

Go ahead and goddamn do it Republicans...may as well, you have Max Cleland working with Sadam, you have John Kerry killing babies and lying about being hurt, you have a DEMOCRATIC PROCESS tied to freaking Al Queada...You have no damn scroupels or sense...just start herding up all those undesirables that are trying to prevent "the spread of Democracy"...im tired of listening to your shit...at least if you come after us with guns, we'll have resolution.
