Cheney, who is leading the U.S. to defeat in Iraq, is on the attack against Democrats

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Dick Cheney was apoplectic today. No wonder. He truly was the mastermind behind Iraq. And, Iraq is a complete disaster. He and his President got the U.S. in to an unwinnable war that is making us look weak around the world. Yet, the man who is help leading us to defeat in Iraq is accusing the Democrats of having a "defeatist strategy." Seriously, if the Bush team put as much energy in to attacking our enemies in Iraq as they do in to attacking Democrats, we might actually make some progress in their war.

Cheney was clearly firing shots at Harry Reid today. But, we know he's not a very good shot. When asked about Cheney's tirade, Reid was dismissive:

Reid shrugged off Cheney's remarks but with his own dig at the vice president.

"I'm not going to get into a name calling match with the administration's chief attack dog," he said.
Reid's spokesperson, Jim Manley, responded with a statement. What Cheney said was really unworthy of the Majority Leader's time:
Vice President Cheney should be the last person to lecture anyone on how leaders should make decisions.

Leaders should make decisions based on facts and reality, two words that seem to be foreign to the Vice President.

This is the same guy who said Iraq has weapons of mass destruction and that we would be greeted as liberators. And it's the same guy who continues to assert that Saddam Hussein had links to al Qaeda long after our own intelligence agency conclusively refuted this notion. To suggest he lacks credibility would be an understatement.

The Vice President's and others' attacks on those who disagree with their failed policies are signs of desperation. They are lashing out because they know the days are numbered for their failed strategy and that the American people and a bipartisan majority are determined to force this Administration to change course in Iraq.
Nico at Think Progress thoroughly slices and dices Cheney's misleading rant.
