Nothing like a speech by a growling Darth Cheney to bolster support for the nuclear deal with Iran. As Fox News host Chris Wallace demonstrated, Cheney is not the best spokesperson when it comes to dealing with Iran as he forced Cheney to admit that Iran’s centrifuges went from zero to 5,000 under his watch, and not under President Barack Obama:

You and President Bush, the Bush-Cheney administration, dealt with Iran for eight years, and I think it was fair to say that there was never any real, serious military threat. Iran went from zero known centrifuges in operation to more than 5,000. So in fairness, didn’t you leave — the Bush-Cheney administration — leave President Obama with a mess? (Fox News Sunday, broadcast Sept. 6, 2015)

Wallace is right. But Cheney and the neocons don’t want to hear or acknowledge how they made matters worse. What the want is war, and they’ll say and do whatever they can to photo-cheney-burnsensure we go to war with Iran or any other country they can paint as a threat.

When will the American public finally recognize Cheney and his ilk are the greatest threats we face? When will the press stop listening to and sharing what Cheney has to say about anything? I mean, how many massive fuck ups and cover ups does it take to make someone persona non grata in mainstream media?

    Great title! Larry Wilkerson was on teevee yesterday opining that Darth Cheney has lost touch with reality. I remember way back when someone in the Bush administration (guess who) lectured Ron Suskind that the Bushies were “making their own reality.” Cheney has not been in touch with our reality since he did have the power to create his own for awhile there, thanks to W.
