In case you also missed it yesterday, the White House took a jab at Politico and their lack of journalistic capability and honesty with a leaked internal email. You can read it here. Those of us who get a kick out of the conservamedia and their enablers like Politico will find this very, very funny.
Politico has this never-ending desire to put a microphone in front of Dick Cheney's face and then simply transcribe and post his rantings on their GOP bulletin board -- I mean, website.
This time, Cheney claims Obama is, surprise, surprise, once again WEAK! And naturally, Politico will not DARE challenge Darth Cheney and his assertions. Instead, just print them without question.
So allow me to consolidate the Dick Cheney reasons that Obama is WEAK which he has kindly informed the American people this year ... see below ...
- He "dithered" on Afghanstan, when all Americans know, the Commander in Chief is expected to immediately knee-jerk react and provide all troops demanded by generals.
- He apologizes to other countries. Which, apparently, is what Obama does when meeting with other countries. How does Cheney know this? Probably because Obama doesn't give cowboy-like speeches ala George W about how awesome America is, telling other countries to follow America's lead.
- He does not believe in American exceptionalism. If you look through my diaries you will notice that I put this as a choice for the right-wing freakout following Obama's speach tomorrow. Good to see Cheney beat me to the punch.
- Bowing to other leaders show weakness. Regardless of the fact that Cheney's former boss, Pres Nixon, also bowed, it is apparently much more important to show strength through symbolism as opposed to actual diplomacy, both of which were not exisent for 8 years under Cheney & Bush.
