I think the Democrats, Barack "shoot from the lip" Obama and "Queen" Nancy Pelosi, in particular, learned some valuable lessons recently.
They learned the hard way not to go up against a Republican who has a backbone, experience, ethics, a protect-Americans-first philosophy and the truth on his side. That person is Dick Cheney.
All Cheney did was simply state that America was less safe under Obama than it was under President Bush. He was sick and tired of all the insulting comments made by Barack and the Democrats, attacking Bush and Cheney, and wanting to treat them as criminals.
And the Democrats didn't like it when Cheney pushed back.
Obama, in a childish, immature snit, actually put our security in danger simply to make a political point. He irresponsibly caused the release of classified interrogation reports describing the procedures used on terrorists but conveniently forgot to also release the follow-up reports that showed how critical these methods were in obtaining valuable information _ information that probably saved thousands of American lives.
Cheney simply demanded these follow-up reports also be released so that the public saw the entire picture, not the less than ethical half truths Obama wanted them to see, letting them decide who was telling the truth and who was lying.
Lo and behold, Obama, like all liberals do when exposed, immediately backed down. This guy is becoming easier and easier to catch deceiving people, and I am having less and less concern that he will last longer than his present four-year reign. I am concerned, however, as to how long it will take for the country to heal itself from the poorly thought-out, destructive goals he wants to accomplish.
Now let's us turn to Nancy Pelosi. Talk about an embarrassment to the party. Here is a typical liberal Bush-hater who is so desperate to tarnish the Bush legacy that she will revert to anything that could possibly bring this about.
