Somebody – PLEASE – shut him UP!
I started this blog a couple of days ago but with everything else have not had a chance to finish, but still wanted to add it, especially with some of the voices now speaking out against Darth Cheney.
In an ideal world one would have hoped, that by now the war criminals George W. Bush and Dick Cheney would be languishing behind bars ready to face a trial showing how their lies not only cost the lives of many great women and men dying to defend their country, but those of innocents caught up in an illegal war and the mishandling of evidence in one of the biggest terrorist attacks the world has ever seen.
Sadly they still roam the streets and the airwaves. Whereas Bush has been pretty quiet since he left office, Cheney, the chicken hawker, has been regularly making the rounds, if one can on one channel, telling anyone on Fox that will listen – which is all of them there, that President Obama is a failure, and that under him America will suffer another attack.
Well talk about pot calling kettle black. This is the man whom under George W. Bush’s administration, ignored important warnings which could have seen the 9/11 tragedy averted. I only say could have, not would have, because who knows, but what we do know is on August 2001, the Bush admin received a memo saying “Bin Laden determined to attack inside the U.S”. And George Tenent told the 9/11 Commission ‘the system was blinking red’. As a report written in The Independent noted:
“In May the FBI had warned of plans to launch attacks on London, Boston and New York. By late August a report, Islamic Extremist Learns to Fly, had landed on Mr Tenet’s desk and the CIA warned the Paris embassy of “subjects involved in suspicious 747 flight training”.”
Yet here is Cheney every few weeks rattling his saber and inserting into the minds of Fox viewers and other American’s seeds of doubt about President Obama. Although he won’t be drawn into conversations about whether he agrees Obama is a socialist, he is ready and willing to kick Obama, make assertions similar to those when he would push the idea into America that Saddam and Osama Bin Laden were allies and Saddam had something to do with 9/11, even though both allegations were very untrue.
But thank goodness there is a voice starting to rise, telling Cheney that enough is enough.
Rep. Andy Grayson (D-Fla.), on a recent edition of MSNBC’s “Hardball” said:
“”On the Internet there’s an acronym that’s used to apply to situations like this: STFU. I don’t think I can say that on the air, but I think you know what that means.””

This is not the first time Grayson has spoken out against Cheney. In October he told MSNBC’s Chris Mathews:
“By the way, I have trouble listening to what he says sometimes because of the blood that drips from his teeth while he’s talking, but my response is this: he’s just angry because the president doesn’t shoot old men in the face,” Grayson said. “But by the way, when he was done speaking, did he just turn into a bat and fly away?”
And now add to this, following Cheney’s appearance on Fox this week, Conan O’Brien and his team have done a great video segment mocking Cheney’s accusation against Obama: “more radical” than the traditional Democratic president“.

I know that some, like Fox, will welcome Darth Cheney with open arms, but thanks to Andy Grayson and Conan for having the “balls” to speak out against this cretin.
