Turnabout Is Never Fair Play

Not with Dick Cheney, it isn’t:

Dick Cheney says he wants to know if he heard Leon Panetta correctly.

After the CIA director apparently told The New Yorker that he thinks the former vice president is crossing his fingers for another attack on America, Cheney said Monday he hopes his “old friend” didn’t really say those words.

“I hope my old friend Leon was misquoted,” Cheney said, in a written statement to FOX News. “The important thing is whether the Obama administration will continue the policies that have kept us safe for the past eight years.”

What’s even more important is whether Dick Cheney will ever come to understand that when he hammers on for weeks (enlisting his daughter to do so as well) about how Barack Obama is endangering the United States by ending or changing Dick Cheney’s preferred interrogation/detention policies, he (Cheney) is, in fact, suggesting that Obama will be to blame for any new terrorist attacks on U.S. soil — and thus is in no moral or ethical position to get all self-righteous when Obama’s CIA director accuses Cheney of positioning himself to gloat if or when there is another terrorist attack.

I think we already know the answer to that one, though.

    How would you categorize Panetta’s comment Kathy?? Leon struck first with an awful comment. Seems Liberals like to make judgments about the motives of other people according to their own tainted/twisted view.

    …. in addition Obama and his cronies have spent a lot of time, given speeches etc. condemning and blaming the former administration for virtually every problem facing the Nation. Cheney is simply responding to this overblown blame as he sees fit, responding to what he sees as misrepresentations and false charges.

    I don’t recall the Bush Administration blaming Clinton for the 2000 Recession nor 9/11 … Clinton had at least 5 chances to kill Bin Laden but didn’t act. The Media was in denial of the 2000 recession, rather blamed Bush/Cheney for “talking down” the Economy. Meanwhile Al Gore never piped down after he lost in 2000. Gore leveled all kinds of accusations against the Bush Admin like “he betrayed this Country” … comparisons to Hitler’s “Brown Shirts”. So you see people, Gore set the precedent for what Cheney is doing.

    You guys are complete hypocrites for telling Dick and Liz to shut up, your guy didn’t, and you wouldn’t. So is Turnabout Fair Play?? I don’t know but payback’s a b*tch for sure …

    Just my thought
    We can keep this conversation going on forever,that’s why we have seperate parties,to keep a great team working together.
    This is not what’s going on…. What we need to worry about is the one world goverment being formed.
    John Mahar’s comment to tonite about O’Bama’s taking over the TV, Well” get use to it folk’s
    we will hear alot more from O’Bama…. We are heading for a hard road, so let’s really start paying attention to what’s going on….
