CHENEY: The Obama Administration
´Can´t Blame George Bush Anymore´

Business Insider, by Colin Campbell

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 8/10/2014 1:56:36 PM

Former Vice President Dick Cheney lashed out again at President Barack Obama on Sunday, repeatedly accusing him of projecting "weakness" abroad and "crippling" the U.S. military. The frequent Obama critic told radio show host and GOP megadonor John Catsimatidis that he traces "most" of the problems of Washington to the current administration. "They can´t blame George Bush anymore," Cheney quipped on AM 970 The Answer´s "The Cats Roundtable." "I think he´s been a failure as a president. I think the scandals, wth respect to the Veterans Administration, with respect to the IRS, these are bad situations."

Comments:

´´This is a dangerous world,........... and this cat [Obama] isn´t remotely qualified to handle it. This guy has no clue, I promise you."

~ President George W. Bush, on hearing one of 0bama´s campaign speeches regarding foreign policy during the 2008 campaign

"Is there anything the Democrats cannot screw up?"

I put that bumper sticker on my truck last year. Now I look like a freaking Oracle.

The administration doesn´t have to blame Bush; their sycophants in the press will do that for them. Witness Thomas Friedman´s fawning interview with Obama yesterday, in which Obama´s comments ran the gamut from stupidity to idiocy. Yet Obama was hailed as a visionary, a foreign policy genius, and the greatest president this country has ever been lucky enough to have grace the Oval Office.

Gutting the officer corps is a very dangerous move. Most officers never make the rank of Major. Most never make the rank of Captain. You can´t make up this loss of leadership overnight. It will take 10-20 years.

Re 3 Stalin murdered 70% of his Officer Corp because they knew he was a fraud- never a military leader doing the Revolution.
Obama is doing the same thing by pink slips.
Hitler was emboldened to attack USSR because his Officers thought Stalin was defenseless without Officers.
They didn´t count on Stalins willingness to sacrifice 20 million of his own citizens.
But for General Zhukov who was pulled from the Gulag at the last minute - Moscow would have fallen.

The so called Bush Derangement Syndrome doesn´t exist because there is something, even remotely, to blame. It exists as a political escape valve for those who will not blame 0bama or the Democrats for their own selfish reasons. The MSM, the LoFos, the Left groupies they are all in it. It doesn´t need facts, evidence, reasonableness or any other normal criteria to use it.

I beg to differ. Obama can, will and always does blame someone else. If it´s not Bush, its Republicans.

There are libtards out there still blaming Reagan for the economy.

I would like to pose a question. Please do not think of me a sympathetic to BO as I wish we could get rid of him immediately. However, how many Majors are in the Army? A 2010 source said about 16,500 at that time. 500 is about 3% of that, hardly a catastrophic change.

My personal view is that ALL of government is bloated and a 5% cut across the board (pre sequester) would be very healthy. Yes, that would include some military personnel. That would be about 825 of 16,500 Majors.

I don´t like the way that BO handles the military but costs MUST be trimmed for all of government, maybe even a few year hiatus on Social Security COLA adjustments for seniors above poverty level incomes.

I generally like Cheney and don´t have a problem with his remarks but I also want to understand the reality of these issues, not knee jerk against everything BO does. There is plenty to hold BO accountable for already. I´m just wondering if some military cuts are not justified.

Love Dick Cheney, but being an honest man, he assumes enough people in this country will ignore obama´s lies about the Bush Administration. Without blaming the previous guys, WHAT would obama do? I guess we´ll find out if obama´s "cuts" were "justified" when the next war he starts begins. Of course it will be too late, but there´s no reason to blame obama for that.. It´s also interesting that some of the Majors and Captains he´s firing are in Afghanistan trying to "help" our enemies by teaching them how to kill US. BTW, speaking of necessary "cuts", how about taking some of OUR money away from Social Welfare programs for illegals and healthy Americans?.....

Poster #8 ......no officer ought receive a pink slip while he is literally serving in the field in line of fire. ....which is what this idiotic administration did to more than just a handful. That is outrageous and has nothing to do with across the board cuts.

With Hillary Rodham Clinton´s 2016 presidential run looking like a foregone conclusion, the question now is whether she has a message. Fresh off a visit to Iowa and two events last week in Washington where she sought to reconnect with female voters, Clinton has sounded increasingly like a candidate. She hints at her presidential ambitions with wink-and-a-nod asides like the one in Iowa: "It is true, I´m thinking about it." Yet in framing what she described Friday as her "long career of fighting for women, and children, and fairness, and equality, and justice," Clinton has nearly mastered the art of avoiding controversy,

Progress unexpected at 69th General
Assembly as Obama faces hurdles
New York Daily News, by James Warren and Dan Friedman    Original Article

WASHINGTON — With the list of international crises growing, President Obama, more than 100 world leaders — and even some celebrities, such as Leonardo DiCaprio — arrive in New York this week for meetings to find common ground and solutions. But while the convening of the 69th General Assembly of the United Nations guarantees a traffic mess, odds are far lower that the gathering achieves anything more than ceremonial jawing. Priority No. 1 for Obama is to bolster a coalition of countries backing his effort to destroy ISIS. Support so far is tepid, especially from Arab states. The President also wants support for

Islamic State issues 55-minute

Islamic State has released a Hollywood-style propaganda video seemingly meant to counter a U.S.-led military and diplomatic drive targeting the media-savvy extremist movement. The slickly produced video, clocking in at 55 minutes, is the group’s most ambitious agitprop effort to date, and again highlights Islamic State´s social media prowess. It initially appeared on YouTube but was removed. We are the harshest toward the infidels, and the flames of war are only beginning to intensify. - English-speaking Islamic State fighter appears in the group´s new video The piece is a manifestly self-glorifying project for a group widely reviled for its cruelty and sectarian-fueled ruthlessness.

Last week, I received a copy of the Quran.(snip) In its cover letter, CAIR cites a 2009 speech made by President Barack Obama in Egypt where he declared that America promised "a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world." CAIR appears to be acting upon that speech literally, and now is taking its message to the local level. In fact, I´ve learned that all major cities in Montana have been receiving copies of the Quran as part of the organization´s public relations campaign.

Pamela Geller is an anti-Muslim activist with a history of paying for hateful ads on New York´s public transit system. (Remember those "savages" posters from 2012? That was her.) On Friday, the New York Daily News reported that Geller´s organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, was launching a $100,000 campaign mocking the Council on American-Islamic Relations´s "My Jihad" initiative, which portrays jihad as a personal, non-violent religious concept. (The CAIR´s "My Jihad" ads ran in several major cities, but not New York.)

Domestic Violence More Common

Domestic violence, also known as intimate partner violence, is defined as the physical, sexual or psychological harm caused by the current or former intimate partner. Since the 1970s, concern regarding the issue began in response to the women´s movement. Most of the traditional studies looked at the abuse women faced from men in heterosexual relationships. But, the latest study by Northwestern Medicine scientists found that domestic violence is more common among same-sex couples and excess stress raises the risk of this abuse. On analyzing the previous studies together, it was observed that domestic violence affected

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department expects to bring criminal charges in the coming months in investigations involving financial institutions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday as he called for better incentives for Wall Street whistleblowers who report crime. Holder did not describe the investigations in a speech at New York University’s law school except to say that they’re “focused on the conduct of individuals” and involve wrongdoing that has undermined the financial markets. He used the address to urge Congress to raise a cap on the amount of money that a whistleblower can receive for reporting misconduct. Such cooperation is essential since

The Australian Federal Police and Australian Security and Intelligence Office conducted several anti-terrorism raids in Sydney and Brisbane. According to reports, about 600 officers with armoured vehicles arrested several people in separate pre-dawn raids in NSW and Brisbane. The recent raids are said to be the largest in Australian history following the report of senior officers who revealed a planned terrorist attack was imminent. Intelligence reports said a suspected terrorist cell is planning a kidnapping and beheading. The act of murder will be recorded and posted on social media for the public to see. Reports also suggested that the terrorist group

A Milwaukee teen charged in a string of armed robberies last week told police he was trying to do as many crimes as he could before he turned 18 on Sept. 11. Rocarldo Chalmers is one of five suspects charged Wednesday in a dizzying spree of armed stick-ups and car jackings that only ended after a high speed chase. Chalmers faces 10 felonies, including armed robbery, car theft and fleeing. Isiah Deshawn Thomas, 18, is charged with five counts, Anthony Griffis, 17, with two. Two juveniles were also arrested and as many as three other suspects remain at large. According to the complaint: Things

Ready for Hillary? Not so fast. Zephyr Teachout, fresh off her strong second-place showing in the Democratic primary against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, pleaded for more Democratic candidates to challenge the presumed 2016 frontrunner. “Please, we need people to run against Hillary Clinton because if she’s not debating anyone on education policy or on tax policy then we all lose,” she told MSNBC’s Krystal Ball on Wednesday. “Not only does she need a challenger from the left, we should have 5 people—10 people—running for president,” she argued. “If we don’t have a Democratic Party challenger, that is a democratic tragedy.”

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds.

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.
