Globama's Ball And Cheney

I'm relieved that somebody wants to save the Republican party. And at least attempt to challenge the "boy who would be king" in the next Presidential election.

I just never expected that person would be Dick Cheney. You make me proud Vice.

After September 11, Vice permanently retired to a distant bunker. I figured he was reading manuals about how to properly shoot birds, or recovering from a heart attack that the public was unaware of.

I could never have dreamed that he was expertly choreographing his own third term. This new Cheney has me excited again about the Old Guard, the military, stopping our spending, heck, gay rights. Everyone who said he'd retire in disgrace was wrong. That heart may be ice cold, but it's still beating.While Bush waits and hopes that history will look favorably at his sordid record, Vice is on the move.

He managed with little effort to get the "boy who would be king" to do an about-face on torture photos. Suddenly, Obama sounds just like Bush. He's mumbling something about keeping military tribunals going. He's ranting on about how torture photos would endanger the troops, so the public doesn't have to see waterboarding, and our dirty little secret. So his administration can keep it going.

Something of a surge is ongoing in Afghanistan. There's no plan to withdraw from Iraq anytime soon. Obama seems to be making good on his promise to invade Pakistan. And yet, his speech to Muslims should be sufficient. Uh huh.

Notice what Boy Wonder is not able to talk about. Healthcare.

Globama's ball and Cheney hijacked the healthcare agenda, so that the administration wouldn't get anything done in the first 200 days. Vice knows all too well the importance of a President getting his agenda going early on in a presidency. FDR did his most important work in the first 100 days. So what to do? How to get history to start looking favorably at Bush who is busy having dinner parties, carrying firewood, and decorating his Dallas home?

Make Obama flustered about waterboarding. Find a way to make force him to care about his lowest priority, national security.

Notice that Vice has even stolen the glory of gay rights out from under his nemesis. He supports gay marriage. I do not, but have to applaud Cheney for showing he has a heart where his lesbian daughter and grandbaby are concerned.

And in the meantime, all Obama has are some soundbites revealing that he believes marriage is between a man and a woman. I bet an awful lot of gay rights activists who supported him are wondering why.
And now Cheney moves on to his next plan. Force Gitmo to stay open. Interesting that Globama's own party refuses to close it.

There's no doubt that Vice also dreams of closing down the dialogue between the administration and Muslim world. This is pivotal. Vice, I know how you can do it. Start talking up the fact that not only is Globama still in Iraq and surging in Afghanistan, but he doesn't even talk about exporting democracy the way you and W. do.

As Bush's excursion and then his plane slowly took off over Washington for the last time, I quietly went to my bed and put the covers over my eyes. The tears fell. I was sad about losing Laura, family values, and especially my beloved pro-life movement.

I couldn't have known that as that plane lifted off in a direction not far from my home, Cheney's plane was touching down in Washington for the first time since September 11.


  1. I have to admit I was pretty blindsided by Dick Cheney. He'd been so seemingly absent during his time as VP that it was a bit of a shock to actually hear him speak! He's been getting a lot of hits in against the president and the Democratic party. It's pretty fascinating that he is one of the only VPs not to run for president after his time in office was up. It's also interesting that GW has all but disappeared and Dick Cheney seems to be the most centered person in the Republican Party right now.

  2. Mrs. S,

    Isn't it terrible though tat all this party has to count on is Rush 10%, Newt 9%, and Cheney 9%. Ugh. There are a lot of up and coming young governors in the Party, but we need them immediately. There seems to be a real brain freeze.

    Like everyone else, I was not a fan of Cheney and the secretive Bush White house. But, I am enjoying seeing him pressure Obama about torture photos and everything else. Love you!

  3. I have a theory that if Cheney and Bush were ever to appear at the same place the whole world will be sucked into a black hole.

  4. Amber,

    Ha ha! I feel the same way about Kathleen Sebelius the Kansas abortion loving governor, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, and Diane Feinstein. Love you!

  5. I believe that Cheney is a manipulative liar. People like him want power - they'll exploit whatever they need to, to get it. I don't see any real vision when I hear him speek, just that hungering for control.

    The Republican Party is in trouble and I don't think that Cheney is the way for them to get out of it.

  6. The party is definitely in trouble! Scary that we don't seem to have a real leader right now or anyone willing to step in and rival Obama in 2012....

    I think he has a vision. It involves ensuring little future for non-compliant countries in his estimation....
