Obama and Cheney plan dueling speeches on terror policy (http://www.yahoo.com/s/1074381)

Obama will attempt to regain control of a boiling debate over anti-terrorism policy (http://us.rd.yahoo.com/dailynews/politico/pl_politico/storytext/22748/32080176/SIG=11m8j0047/*http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0309/20714.html) with a major speech on Thursday an address that comes on the same day that former Vice President Dick Cheney will be weighing in with his own speech on the same theme.

The dueling speeches amount to the most direct engagement so far between Obama and his conservative critics in the volatile argument over what tactics are justified in detaining and interrogating suspected enemy combatants.



The national security (http://us.rd.yahoo.com/dailynews/politico/pl_politico/storytext/22748/32080176/SIG=11ml7182p/*http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1208/16074.html) debate egged on by frequent charges from Cheney that Obama is leaving the country more vulnerable to attack is the only subject on which many Republicans believe they have been able to gain traction against a popular president and the Democratic majority that now dominate Washington.

Its a shame, I believe Cheney would rip the magic negro a new one if he was fairly covered in the MSM.

Can you believe the clown we have for President right now?

Check out this video:

At 1:25 into it, Obummer says:
"unfortunately, faced with an uncertain threat, our government made a series of hasty decisions. Too often our government made decisions based on fear rather than foresight"

Isn't this the same dolt who, on the second day after taking office ordered the closing of Gitmo WITHOUT foresight??? It took his fellow idiot Democrats 4 months to figure out it wasn't a good idea, whereas we conservatives knew it was a bad idea when first brought up by the lunatic left.

Wouldn't this stupidity be classified as a "hasty decision", O Messiah??

Someone had MSNBC on here... quite frankly the commentary was revolting. The way you hear them tell it, Cheney is acting like a spurned child who didn't get to have cookies for dinner.
