The loathsome hypocrisy of Dick Cheney

As predictably as a morning dump, the completely irrelevant ex-VP took the opportunity of the undiebomber attack to do a little mouthing off about what he characterized as Obama’s “low-key” approach to terrorism.  Obama doesn’t know we’re at war!  Obama doesn’t want to keep us safe! What a king-hell douche:

“He seems to think if he closes Guantanamo and releases the hard-core Al Qaeda-trained terrorists still there, we won’t be at war,’’ Cheney continued. “He seems to think if he gets rid of the words, ‘war on terror,’ we won’t be at war. But we are at war and when President Obama pretends we aren’t, it makes us less safe.’’

In response to the doddering old chest-thumping fool whose massive shitpiles they’ve been mopping up for the better part of a year, the White House snarled back:

To put it simply: this President is not interested in bellicose rhetoric, he is focused on action. Seven years of bellicose rhetoric failed to reduce the threat from al Qaeda and succeeded in dividing this country. And it seems strangely off-key now, at a time when our country is under attack, for the architect of those policies to be attacking the President.

Yes, it is strangely off-key, especially when Cheney himself brooked absolutely no dissent when in office.   And anyone who didn’t like it would quickly find their reputations and careers in smoking ruins as they were branded treasonous, America-hating terrorist supporters.

Even more ironically, Cheney’s latest barrage of verbal diarrhea was deployed just as  investigators confirmed that one of the Al Qaeda creeps who helped set up the failed Christmas Day attack was a former Gitmo inmate that the Bush administration saw fit to release in 2007.  For reasons known only to themselves and their Saudi overlords, Bush and Cheney thought it would be a good idea if this “hard-core, Al Qaeda-trained terrorist” was sent back to Saudi Arabia — for art therapy, no less — and then quickly released back into the wild to re-join Al Qaeda and eventually connect with the dumbass kid we now know as the Undiebomber.

Heckofajob, Dickie!  Now STFU and go take a nap.

UPDATE: Courtesy of Red Tory, here’s a clip from last night’s Rachel Maddow  Show, in which she utterly decimates the old fart Cheney and the rest of the phony fearmongers of the GOP:

    Red Tory has Rachel Maddow on this. She’s got more cojones than the rest of the Merkin fourth estate put together.

    Good morrow, all!
    Dick Cheney is not stupid. He’s counting on the dumber half of the population to believe him. It’s the Big Lie, and he’s learned it well.
    The public remembers 9/11, but not that it happened on his watch. They remember Hurricane Katrina, but not the heckuva job that Brown and FEMA did to relieve that disaster.
    Dick Cheney is not stupid – he is evil. He knows what he’s doing, and he’s enjoying it. Apart from Obama, there is no strong Democratic presence to call him on his outbursts and misinformation. Pelosi won’t. Harry Reid can’t. Biden? Nobody will take him seriously, anyway. If you can’t slap down Sarah Palin one-on-one, you’ve been neutered.
    It takes a gutsy (yeah, I’m gonna say it) ballsy bulldyke like Rachel Maddow to call out the Dark Lord and summon the Force of fact and reason to counter his power of the Dark Side.
    To all you Democrats: Stop being the Nice Guys, and start being the Good Guys. When they kick sand in your face, kick their asses into the water.
    Happy New Year! – CTZen
