Today at The CPAC Conference in Washington, wingnuts were treated to the one-two combo
of father-daughter duo Dick Cheney and Liz Cheney.  

The 5 deferment war criminal was in typical form as he blasted President Obama and the Democrats.

"I think Barack Obama is a one term president," to a roaring crowd. "It's a great time to be a conservative."  

Maybe that will get him an invitation to the White House--nothing ever surprises me from our current Democratic Administration.  

The best or worst came from his daughter Liz.  

"There's no polite way to put this, but that kind of incompetence gets people killed," Cheney said, accusing the Obama administration of missing warnings from the intelligence community that Yemeni terrorists were plotting an attack.

"There is no doubt that the daily intelligence briefings that the president receives contained much more information on the threat from Yemen," she said, without a hint of irony at the failures of the Bush-Cheney years, bemoaning "incompetence, misjudgment and presidential neglect."

Takes a lot of gall to say that especially when your father presided over the death of 3,000 on 9/11.  But the wuss Democrats gave Bush/Cheney a pass on this and we are still paying the price for it.  We lost in 2004 because of Democratic spinelessness on this issue and got Katrina, Roberts, Alito and more death in Iraq as a thank you.  Why do Rethugs poll better than Dems on National  Security after  the disasters of Bush-Cheney? That is the consequence when you have a feckless party that does not confront these monsters.  Dick Cheney should be afraid to step outside for fear of arrest and a war tribunal.  But he and his daughter launch attack after attack as if you can compare the incompetence of 9/11 with anything that has happened in the past year.  And we all know that Dick and Liz Cheney as partisan and blood-thirsty as they are would love nothing more than another
9/11 on Obama's watch.  If you don't believe that, then you are truly naive.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
