There is a lot to not like about former US VP Dick Cheney. He simply appears to be evil! No other word for it!
Now out of office - thankfully - he still can't be kept quiet let alone follow convention in not attacking his and his President's successors in office.
The Board, the Blog by the Editorial Writers of the NY Times, write:
"Most presidents and vice presidents refrain from attacking their successors after they leave office, especially on highly sensitive matters — like, say, the safety of the nation. At the very least, they wait until they write their inevitable, usually tedious, memoir.
Not Dick Cheney. He didn’t wait even a month. In an interview published today by the website Politico, the (thankfully) former vice president let loose a stream of disinformation and attacks on Mr. Obama that were breathtaking even by the standards of a man who set new lows for meanness and dissembling.
– Mr. Obama is making it more likely terrorists will launch a catastrophic nuclear or biological attack on the United States — because he doesn’t want to torture prisoners, violate the Geneva Conventions, and ignore the Constitution and federal law.
Mr. Cheney’s evidence? None whatsoever. It was just yet another way for him to justify the repugnant policies he helped put in place for the treatment of detainees after the 9/11 terrorist attacks."
