Writing from an alternate reality in the Wall Street Journal, liar, war criminal, and all around not-nice-person Dick Cheney had this to say about President Barack Obama's strategy in Iraq, apparently without a hint of irony or self-awareness:
Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.Ah, yes. The Bush Administration's rank incompetence and the consequences thereof are rare indeed, but that's not what Cheney was talking about.
This fact was not lost on White House press secretary Jay Carney, who, at his last press briefing before stepping down, answered a question from ABC's resident rightwing troll, Jonathan Karl.
KARL: I wonder if you've had the chance to see this op-ed piece that former vice president Dick Cheney has written in the Wall Street Journal that has a rather critical tone to it toward the White House. He says, "rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many," talking about the situation in Iraq and in the Middle East generally.That'll leave a mark.
CARNEY: Which president was he talking about?
How nice of Carney to shove that quote back in Dick's face during his last day as press secretary. Oh, and rightwing troll and Benghazi fraudster Jonathan Karl as well. They both got what they deserved.
Now if Cheney would just crawl back into his undisclosed location and shut up, we'd all be better off.
