Bush/Cheney throughly f()cked up this nation and now Cheney is spending his golden years trying to rewrite those awful 8 years.You can bet he is trying to create some buzz about himself so he'll get a bigger book deal and more money for speaking engagements,for him to pretend this is about helping the United States is a big joke.

And to hear him speak on national security is doubly offensive seeing how he received 5 deferments to avoid military service and not forgetting he was second in command when the worst terrorist attack ever occurred on our soil.

Bush/Cheney were asleep at the wheel when Al Queda struck and then they veered this nation off into a useless needless war with Iraq to divert our attention from the real terrorists and now they spend their time yammering about how safe they made the country.

For Cheney to tell us he knows all about national security is like Charlie Brown telling us he knows all about kicking a football.

Go home,Charlie Brown!

Ask Cheney what Americans are supposed to do when his useless color coded alarm system goes from yellow to orange.

I'm sure he and those that created the worthless system doesn't have a clue.

But it made the sheep feel safer, even if they had no clue either.

Anyone who would trust Cheney or Bush is an idiot or very masochistic. Thankfully you are in the minority. Did ya notice the Grand Obstruction Party LOST! Cheney is a disaster and one we already had thank you. Why President Obama even acknowledges Cheney is a real question. At least Bush has had the dignity to conduct himself as a former President and remain silent. Cheney would and did sell out his own daughter. Stick with him and find yourself out on a weak limb with Lush Rimbaugh. get the point????

Cheney is senile! He is totally into himself and the money he can make off the war in Iraq. The sooner we are out of there the better. Close GitMo down and use that empty prison up in Montana that hasn't been opened to hold these folks until they are released back into their countries; time to bring jobs back into the US.

You trust Cheney? He told you his administration wasn't going to be nation building and spend recklessly and then he turned around spending trillions on nation building.

Apparently you don't know what the word trust even means.

Yeah trust the man who convinced you that U.S. would be "welcomed as liberators" right after we find those WMDs, and "we know where they are".

Trust the "warrior" who passed up on being a warrior on 6 separate occasions because he had something better to do than fight for his country.

You are sheep if you do.

Maybe so.

On many issue Bush was wrong and some of his policies did hurt the country.

But Obama is worse in every respect.

It's out of the frying pan and into the fire for America.

Yet we already have several convicted terrorists are currently in U.S.'super-max' facilities, including shoe bomber Richard Reid. Stop being such a fearful sheep. You had no issue convicted terrorists with this when Bush was in office.
