In The Country Of The Blind, The One-Eyed Man Is King *


Washington Times:

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Saturday night that President Obama has jeopardized U.S. national security by nominating substandard candidates for key Cabinet posts and by degrading the U.S. military.

“The performance now of Barack Obama as he staffs up the national security team for the second term is dismal,” Mr. Cheney said in comments to about 300 members of the Wyoming Republican Party.

Mr. Cheney, a Wyoming native, said it was vital to the nation’s national security that “good folks” hold the positions of secretary of state, CIA director and secretary of defense.

“Frankly, what he has appointed are second-rate people,” he said.

Cheney is being generous. Obama is himself a thoroughgoing second-rater; he only shines in comparison to true third-raters like Joe Biden, Chuck Hagel, etc., etc., etc. . . .

He could be right, but, he should shut the hell up. Paul Martin and Jean Chretien should shut the hell up too. Of all people who know just how difficult it is to govern, ex Presidents and VP's and ex Prime Ministers should be at the top of the list. They diminish themselves when they chirp from the safety of the side lines.

Blame Crash:

Yes, they very well may "diminish themselves when they chirp from the safety of the side lines", but that's no reason for self censorship. Sometimes things just have to be said and Cheney did just that.
Being cautious would be good advice though. One doesn’t have to look any further than the two Liberal Party buffoons and their recent blathering.
