Dick Cheney should really stop playing the blame game.

    The Bush administration spent Trillions of dollars fighting a war to supposedly rid us of the terrorist networks, as well as building a comprehensive anti-terrorist network and security apparatus.

    But according to the right-wing propaganda machine, and Dick Cheney, it was not the structure put in place by the Bush administration, but it was instead the leadership of the Obama administration that's at fault.

    In September of 2001, the Bush administration had been given actionable intelligence that a large-scale terrorist attack was imminent. A memo was given to the president himself warning him of this threat.

    The Bush administration not only simply relied upon the pre-existing infrastructure to take care of this threat, but it disregarded the intelligence it did have.

    So, by the right-wing logic:

    If the "Christmas Bomber" is Obama's fault...

    Then 9/11 is the Bush administration's fault.

    And of course good ol' Dick Cheney was second in charge.

    Not me, I never said it was the Bush adminsitration's fault.

    But hey, if Cheney's willing to take full responsibility for being at fault for 9/11, and if you, Willow, are willing to admit that the guy you voted for in 2004 was responsible for and at fault for 9/11...

    then I guess the Obama administration can take the blame for a failed idiot underwear bomber.

    Now, look here you commie hippie...


    Bush inherited 9/11 - which was successful - from Clinton because Clinton was a DEMOCRAT. The unsuccessful attempt that just happened was the current President's fault because he is also a DEMOCRAT.

    Got that? Good. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go disrupt a town hall meeting...


    ..that is, after wanking off to thoughts of Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and Ann Coulter in a 3-way using an American flag-painted dildo.

    Responsibility:
    9/11--Clinton
    7 years of no domestic attacks, al Waeda operatives dead or in jail--Bush
    Near miss where "the system worked"--Obama.

    Any questions?

    Cheney is scared shitless that he'll be prosecuted for war crimes. Unfortunately, Obama has failed to promote that idea.
    He'll be known for that in history books, at least.

    Nah, I think it's just a personal pride thing. He just wants to try and make people forget as much as possible how it was when he was running the show with his hand up Shrub's ass. 'Bout the only thing I give Dubya credit for is finally realizing Mr. Sneer shouldn't be listened to so much.




    Oh yeah, and helping Africa, too.
