Out of respect for 9/11, all of the politico propaganda stood still for the day, as both parties agreed to not run ads or address any Election-related GOP isht…everyone EXCEPT for that prick azzhole, Dick Cheney.
Dick Cheney went on the offensive against President Obama in a statement to a conservative news site as both political campaigns paused to remember the victims of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
The former vice president released a statement to The Daily Caller late Monday that criticized the president over GOP allegations that he has skipped daily intelligence briefings and took undue credit for Osama bin Laden’s death.
“If President Obama were participating in his intelligence briefings on a regular basis then perhaps he would understand why people are so offended at his efforts to take sole credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden,” Cheney told the site in an email through a spokeswoman.
“Those who deserve the credit are the men and women in our military and intelligence communities who worked for many years to track him down,” he added. “They are the ones who deserve the thanks of a grateful nation.”
The harsh statement was dropped on the eve of the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, as both campaigns planned to suspend their negative ads in honor of the victims of the terrorist attacks.
The former VP to George W. Bush at the time of the attacks was referring to a report by a conservative investigative group called the Government Accountability Institute. That report said that a look at Obama’s schedule found that he attended the presidential daily brief just 536 times during his first 1,225 days in office and less frequently after that.
White House spokesman Jay Carney called reports about those findings “hilarious.”
“He gets it every day, okay? The President of the United States gets the presidential daily briefing every day,” Carney told reporters Monday afternoon in response to a question about the allegation.
He said that Obama reads the briefing every day that he is not in the Oval Office for an in-person meeting.
Can this old head finally sit down and shut the eff up already??
