Words That May Be Regretted

Sphere: Related Content

Dick Cheney is getting under Obama's skin so The One sent out his National Security Advisor to rebut Cheney's charge that the Obama administration is not quite ready for prime time in the fight against Islamo-fascism:

Responding to criticism from former Vice President Cheney that President Obama is making the nation more vulnerable to terrorism, the president’s National Security Adviser, Gen. Jim Jones (Ret.), told ABC News in an exclusive interview that actually the reverse is true: President Obama’s greater success with international relations has meant more terrorists put out of commission.

“This type of radical fundamentalism or terrorism is a threat not only to the United States but to the global community,” Jones said. “The world is coming together on this matter now that President Obama has taken the leadership on it and is approaching it in a slightly different way – actually a radically different way – to discuss things with other rulers to enhance the working relationships with law enforcement agencies – both national and international."

Jones said that “we are seeing results that indicate more captures, more deaths of radical leaders and a kind of a global coming-together by the fact that this is a threat to not only the United States but to the world at-large and the world is moving toward doing something about it.”
Obama has been in office less time than Bush had been when we were attacked on 9/11, He has not filled his national security team including filling the TSA top spot and he's not mentioned Afghanistan in months even when troop deaths are peaking (except to blame Bush of course).

When we were attacked on that dreadful day, the left slammed Bush as one who left us unprepared and not ready to lead us in a time of crisis. He was scorched because of the bin-Laden PDB and essentially was blamed for the days events even though he had been in office only 7+ months and had to wait until the election fiasco was sorted out before assembling his transition team and key players. Despite the fact that we were not attacked in the eight years since 9/11, the liberals kept on attacking themselves.

Reading what Jim Jones said makes me think that Obama is trying to bluster and strut while al-Qaeda gets stronger and plans their next operation. They have to get lucky once while we have to be successful every time and Jones' has set his boss up for a serious fall should the next attempt be the lucky one. It's more proof that Obama is not ready for prime time in the least and he has proven the exact opposite of what was intended. If we fail and they get to us once again, Jones and Obama will be forced to eat these words.

Cheney wins again by baiting them into this.

It sure is fun watching poor old Dick Cheney stumbling all over the right wing airwaves, desperately trying to poison the jury pool and dodge a VERY long stretch in a federal prison. I only saw clips of his "interview" with Chris Wallace on FOX Noise on Sunday. Someone described it as a starry-eyed teenage girl interviewing one of the Jonas brothers.

It sure is funny observing the meltdown of Dick and Liz (Cheney - not Burton and Taylor). The trillion dollar hammer is about to hit the fan. They're like cornered rats. Oh, man! I'm lovin' this!

Don't take your eye off the Cheneys. For your best entertainment bargain, these two are the show that should not be missed. We're talking essential viewing here!
