Will Richard, The Dick, Cheney never take the hint and just fade into retirement?
Previous former presidents and vice presidents retired to their compounds surrounded by Secret Service (such as George W. Bush) or devoted themselves to humanitarian causes (such as Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton). Former vice-president and presidential election winner, Al Gore, has occupied his time by trying to convince Teapublicans that science exists.
On the other hand, The Dick keeps elbowing his way onto cable TV to push his particular brand of hate and meanness. His most recent such foray was on CNNs State of the Union, where he said that President Obama owes the Bush administration an apology.
An apology? For what? For cleaning up the two unfunded wars started by The Dick and his puppet Bush? For cleaning up the economic disaster left behind? For cleaning up the oil and financial industries run wild? For trying to restore our nations stature in the world after years of violating the Geneva Conventions? For finally tracking down the leaders of Al-Qaeda?
No, according to The Dick, President Obama should take back his criticism of the Bush administration’s tactics in the war on terrorism. More specifically, The Dick wants President Obama to take back statements from his 2009 speech in Cairo, in which he said the trauma of 9/11 caused America to act contrary to our ideals.
It appears The Dick had his feelings hurt (yeah, I know, its hard to imagine that he of the bionic heart has feelings) when President Obama denounced The Dicks “enhanced interrogation as torture. Of course, The Dicks waterboarding technique is specifically defined as torture by the Geneva Conventions. But, despite that inconvenient truth, The Dick claims, “We were never torturing anyone in the first place. He (Obama) said we walked away from our basic fundamental ideals. That simply wasn’t the case.”
Even The Dicks daughter piled on the current President. “He slandered the nation,” said Liz Cheney, “and I think he owes an apology to the American people.”
Proving that you dont have to be male to be a Dick.
