    Cheney rips Obama over foreign policy in op-ed

    Washington (CNN) –Former Vice President Dick Cheney and daughter Liz Cheney penned a scathing op-ed in which they offered a blistering critique of President Barack Obama’s handling of the escalating violence in Iraq.
    "Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many," the wrote Cheney and his daughter, a conservative pundit and former State Department official in the Bush administration, in an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal. "Instead, he abandoned Iraq and we are watching American defeat snatched from the jaws of victory."

    I don't agree with the skanky remark, or the shooting remark, but the quote from Cheney enraged me.

    Cheney's right. Obama's the biggest loser to ever occupy the Oval Office.

    I'm too classy to go after Obama's kids, so I'll let the comments about Cheney's family stand on their own merits.

    This from one of the main voices for the invasion of Iraq? From someone who supported the original action that led to the mess there?

    And we should listen to him, why?

    Cheney's "kids" are adults that often take shots at other politicians including this article.. They are fair game.

    I was being facetious about the shooting remark. His daughter is an entirely different matter.

    Re: Cheney rips Obama over foreign policy in op-ed

    The worst part is that Cheney knew the likely consequences of the second war with Iraq.

    "And once we'd ......gotten rid of Saddam Hussein and his government, then we'd have had to put another government in its place. What kind of government? Should it be a Sunni government or Shi'i government or a Kurdish government or Ba'athist regime? Or maybe we want to bring in some of the Islamic fundamentalists? How long would we have had to stay in Baghdad to keep that government in place? What would happen to the government once U.S. forces withdrew? How many casualties should the United States accept in that effort to try to create clarity and stability in a situation that is inherently unstable? I think it is vitally important for a President to know when to use military force. I think it is also very important for him to know when not to commit U.S. military force. And it's my view that the President got it right both times, that it would have been a mistake for us to get bogged down in the quagmire inside Iraq."

    I'm not going to take cheap shots at someone's kids. Sorry I'm more honorable than that.

    Really? You take shots at Obama all the time. He had parents.

    Liz Cheney has already taken shots at Obama's kids. Try to keep up.
