Megyn Kelly Totally Owns Dick Cheney Over His Terrible Iraq Track Record

Posted: 06/19/2014 7:24 am

After quoting Cheney's recent op-ed on the war, in which he said of President Obama,“Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many,” she put this scorcher of a question to him:

"Time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well in Iraq, sir. You said there was no doubt Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. You said we would be greeted as liberators. You said the insurgency was in its last throes back in 2005, and you said that after our intervention, extremists would have to 'rethink their strategy of jihad.' Now, with almost a trillion dollars spent there, with almost 4,500 American lives lost there, what do you say to those who say you were so wrong about so much at the expense of so many?"

Kelly didn't drop any mics, but she might as well have. Fox News viewers who were expecting something different might have wondered whether they were watching another network.

Most U.S. companies don't actually pay the 35% rate. Medtronic actually paid about an 18% rate. What Congress should do is rewrite the tax laws so that these companies can no longer rip off the country, but that won't happen because big companies can buy influence. Your name is well chosen. Demented indeed.
Right Wingers don't understand tax loopholes, either for the rich or big corporations. They have bought into all the RW propaganda that "American companies pay the highest rate of taxes" because to them there is only black or white. There are no shades of gray, no fine details, no loopholes, no complicating factors......no Republican party who is kissing the butts of big corporations and billionaires.

What a fine job the GOP has done brainwashing middle class & poor folks.

Yeah, middle class (clueless) Republican voters.....they are looking out for YOU.

" Total corporate federal taxes paid fell to 12.1% of U.S. profits in 2011, according to the Congressional Budget Office. The average profitable company in the Fortune 500 paid just 18.5% of its profits in federal income taxes between 2008 and 2010, according to Citizens for Tax Justice, a nonpartisan tax research organization. Dozens of large and profitable companies paid nothing in recent years.

CEOs who are the face of various corporate pro-austerity, anti-tax campaigns with names like Fix the Debt, The LIFT America Coalition, The RATE Coalition and even the long-standing Business Roundtable, preach a theory that cutting corporate taxes is “pro-growth.” But they neglect to say that the growth is of their corporate bottom lines, not the economy and certainly not social well-being.

Though many of these austerity crusaders have corporate retirement plans that will provide tens- and even hundreds of thousands of dollars PER MONTH in their retirement, these CEOs shamelessly argue for cutting monthly Social Security benefits and raising the retirement age to 70 – which automatically reduces seniors’ retirement benefits by 20%."

Contrary to what you believe, this shouldn't even be an issue. And it is an issue for one reason only. And that's because the GOP knows that they can deceitfully use it to continue to enrage their clueless voter base.

Both conservative AND progressive groups were targeted. They were targeted when they requested a tax status they did not deserve. That is the IRS's JOB. This issue is nothing more than Republican political theater.

Yep, Biden is a lover, not a killer. I know Biden can be a bit
of a goofball now and then, but I've always liked him. Too
bad he isn't younger. I think he would have a better shot
as a presidential candidate, though he didn't too well with
that in the past.
I like him too. He's quite the charmer. I think he would make a good president. He's amazingly informed about so many of the problems this country faces right now. But I have no idea why anyone would want to be president anymore. Right now we've got an intelligent man in office and the hateful wingers have done everything to destroy him, even to the point that they are willing to destroy the country, America's middle class & the economy as well, as long as they "git" Obama.

IMO, today's Republicans are homegrown terrorists.

I agree 100%. Any woman who votes Republican has to be out of her mind. The same holds true for any working class American.

Republicans want to privatize SS. They want to end Medicare. They want to end public education. They want to end the social programs that keep poor children from starving. And all so they can hand more tax cuts to billionaires.

The Republicans want to cut off the head of every middle class American. And the clueless wingers CONTINUE to buy into their propaganda.

I want tax rates for MILLIONAIRES to be restored to where they were when Reagan was president. How quickly wingers forget how things really were under their "GOD".

McCain is about to bust a gut trying to bash Obama. The generals have taken him down a notch or two but McCain just keeps spewing hate & warmongering foolishness. It's a delight to listen to him. I wish people could understand just where this country would be if McCain was running things. Endless war.....

I agree....Cheney should be in prison. I think he is off-his-rocker. Seriously. Though he may just be so angry that he was so damn wrong that he doesn't care anymore.

What abut a republiKan governor of NC transferring money intended for highway repairs and construction into salaries for his campaign groupies in invented jobs? What about accepting campaign donations from internet video gambling interests? What about a NC legislative branch trying to take control of the judiciary function of the state bureau of investigation in order to stop the investigations into the legislative branch? What do you figure excuses all that?
