    Please don't try to put your words in my mouth. I've said no such thing.

    So which is it, because that is the impression I got from your vague posting as well.

    It doesn't, it does show the hypocrisy of those on the right that gave Bush a free pass on this, but only bitch about Obama doing it.

    OK...

    Do you or do you not agree that if it was wrong for Bush to 'fiddle', then it is just as wrong for The Obama to do the same.

    And so, you're attacking the messenger in the hopes of making the message go away.

    Not at all, I happen to think Obama is in the wrong on this, however where was your outrage when Bush did this? Oh yeah, non-existent.

    Your impression is politically skewed. (Big shock, that.)

    The topic at hand is Cheney's complaint that the Obama administration is "dithering" in response to a requested troop increase (see thread title and OP for further information).

    I have simply pointed out Cheney's hypocrisy, in that his administration "dithered" far longer and did not come close to filling multiple troop requests by commanders on the ground in Afghanistan.

    Yes -- you attacked the man and ignored the message.
    That's called 'misdirection' and 'obfuscation'.
