Obama Rips Cheney!

Discussion in 'Politics' started by Landis82, Mar 23, 2009.

  1. President Obama, rejecting former Vice President Dick Cheney's contention that Obama has put the nation at greater risk of terrorism, suggests in an interview on "60 Minutes" that the previous administration's stance was an "advertisement for anti-American sentiment."

    "How many terrorists have actually been brought to justice under the philosophy that is being promoted by Vice President Cheney?" Obama asks. "It hasn't made us safer. What it has been is a great advertisement for anti-American sentiment."

  2. Right....Maybe Obama can answer why, what with all the anti-American sentiment Cheney and Bush whipped up, we weren't attacked again after 9/11?

    Oops, I forgot - everyone knows terrorists cannot multitask! Can't wave a burning effigy of Bush and try to attack us again at the same time! My bad! And, of course, the Islamofascists didn't hate us and want to destroy us until Bush and Cheney created all this anti-American sentiment whereas before we were just loved by bin Laden and Co.

    Foolish of me to question the Messiah...

  3. Dammit. I finally have to agree with Obama on this.
  4. The Cheney philosophy was that Gitmo POW's are combatants not ever to be brought to justice.
    Obama , you fool. you may disagree with Cheney but his philosophy was correctly followed.
  5. "The Cheney philosophy was that Gitmo POW's are combatants not ever to be brought to justice."

    Can you see how unAmerican your comments actually are?

    americans are the most anti-Americans, we hate own our self, we have no respect for our own country.
  7. I assume you are talking about yourself and the people who live in the cardboard boxes next to you?
  8. Only time will tell how 'safe' we are under Obama.

    One thing that can't be argued, is that there were no more attacks against us following 9/11.

    And if we are attacked again under Obama, you can count on the left blaming Bush and Cheney.

    They hate us and have no problem recruiting Arab fighters because we treat them bad(torture etc.).
    Some of them(Arab fighters) are former Guantanamo detainees.
    We haven't been particularly effective at differentiating between really dangerous ones and the rest
    Obama's solution:
    We have to be more responsible etc..........

    Hey dumb-ass since you called me dense I have been following your posts and this is your pattern - either fuck-up the logic of an argument or evade(or you genuinly misunderstand).
    And because you have problem with logic it doesn't surprise me that you can't comprehend that your hero Obama didn't say a shit basically. Empty of substance completely. BOY

    Otherwords if Cheney's approach was wrong and he critizes it.He better have a solution. HE DOESN'T!!!!

    What a totally moronic question. Let me ask you this; why wasn't America hit with a domestic attack until W. had spent some time in the White House? Idiot.

    Oh, wait. He didn't spend it in the WH. He was constantly ON VACATION!!!
