Why can't Dick Cheney just sink back into his "undisclosed location"?

How strange. When Dick Cheney was the Vice President and, many argue, the main force behind the Bush Administration's policies, he was largely invisible, holed up in an "undisclosed location" and acting is an un-democractic a fashion as seemed possible.

Then his party loses the election, in large part precisely because his policies had wrecked more than one country in the last eight years, including ours.

You'd think he'd show a little humility in the face of this rejection, but no.

Instead, he seems to have taken it upon himself to hit the airwaves and share his grim, foreboding, scolding, destructive perspectives on the Obama Administration with the world.

Please, Dick, stop being a dick. Just shut up and go back to reaping the many financial rewards of steering billions in government contracts to companies in which you have a stake or some really good friends. Surely that should be enough for the closest thing to a Darth Vadur we have in this country today.

why dont you ask your friend obama about franklin raines?

Steven Feuerstein said...

Gee, Mark, is that the best you can do? Well, I would be honored to have Barack Obama as my friend, but it ain't so.

And I don't understand. You believe that Franklin Raines is as awful and disgusting and destructive as Dick Cheney?

Obama way off on this one. The way to fighting terrorism was never lost. We haven't been attacked since 9/11. The U.S. is handling things just fine in that regard, thank you.

Let's see if I understand this.
The USA hasn't been attacked since 9/11 so the US is handling things fine.

I never got killed driving drunk, nor have I killed anyone else doing so, so I must be doing the right thing?

We (the Netherlands, aka the low country) have suffered from floodings every now and then. But ever since global warming began we haven't. So we must be doing the right thing in screwing up the environment, right?

And last, but certainly not least: The USA hasn't been attacked BEFORE 9/11. So the US must have been doing the right thing back then too.

Dick Cheney is like that ex that just won't let go: he thinks if he can just talk to you long enough, you'll take him back.

Where's a restraining order when you need one, eh?
