Dueling National Security Speeches: Cheney v. Obama

A few above the post thoughts...For all those who want Cheney to shut up and go away (Hi Ms. McCain!), how many other people are able to put a sitting President so on the defensive that he has to schedule a major speech to rebut him? Obviously Cheney is hitting a nerve.

Now you can say that Obama may want this fight but it's pretty pathetic that the President of the United States wants to play such petty games.

Either way Obama doesn't look good. He simply wants to campaign and not govern.

Can you imagine if Bush felt compelled to give a campaign speech defending himself every time his critics attacked him a little too much? That's all he would have done.

And remember all the speeches Bush gave attacking Clinton for not taking terrorism seriously and causing 9/11? Yeah, me either.

Original post:
Cheney (Evil Be Upon Him) is giving a speech on the Bush administration's security policies, Obama will be giving one shortly on Gitmo and other topics. Obama already gave his.

Right now Cheney is taking out after the NY Times. It's AWESOME.

Thankfully he's also delineating the difference between what happened at Abu Ghrab and Gitmo. The former was sadistic BS, the other was a calculated effort to get desperately needed information.

Needless to say, Olbermann, Sullivan and the various incarnations of Glenn Greenwald are going to hate it. I love it.

An important reminder....3 (THREE!) terrorists were water boarded. That's it.

Now he's ripping Obama and his Orewellian name game which killed War on Terror and "enemy combatants". Did I mention this is AWESOME!?

In his speech Obama said,

Some Americans are angry, others want to re-fight debates that have been settled...that they have lost.

He's right. Too bad the Republicans didn't nominate someone who would make the case for those policies in the straight forward, factual way Cheney is doing right now. Thanks John McCain and the awesome Republicans Democrats and independents who nominated him.

More updates soon.
