Dick Cheney - Has a Heart
Dick Cheney – Has a Heart

James Fallows: ‘A few hours ago I said sincerely that a number of prominent officials who had set the stage for todays disaster in Iraq deserved respect for their silence as their successors chose among the least-terrible of available options.I unwisely included Dick Cheney, former vice president and most ill-tempered figure to hold national office since Richard Nixon, on that list.If Id waited a little while, I would have seen a new op-ed by Cheney and his daughter Liz in where else! the WSJ denouncing the Obama administrations fecklessness about Iraq and much else. They say, unironically, about the current occupant of the White House:Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many. You want a specimen of being so wrong about so much at the expense of so many? Consider the thoughts of one Richard B. Cheney, in a major speech to the VFW in August 2002, in the run-up to the war…’ (The Atlantic).
