The GOP has frequent hysterical outbursts that respecting the rule of law diminishes our safety, knee jerk bloviating that diplomacy somehow compromises our security, spasmodic screeching that admitting to torture is damaging even though they never admit that torturing did the damage.
There are none as vehement in the hyperbole as the master of disaster, Dick Cheney, the fiercest fear monger of them all.
Dick Cheney growls every few months that the Obama administration is making us less safe that we have to torture our values to death to save our freedoms. He has become a disgusting parody of a very dangerous man, who willfully violated the laws of the United States of America, brazenly broke provisions of the treaties of the Geneva Conventions to which the United States is a party and knowingly trashed the Constitution that he swore to uphold.
George Bush and Dick Cheney swore an oath, not to protect the citizens of the United States, but rather to protect the Constitution of the United States. It is truly pathetic how badly they failed at both.
Those who openly advocate the breaking of our laws and our international commitments don’t love their country, they love wielding power over it.
And for all of our values that Dick and his little minions so callously trashed what was the result?
Lives lost to terrorism in the United States Bush/Cheney first year in office = 2,978
Lives lost to terrorism in the United States Obama/Biden first year in office = 0
Fuck off Dick you’ve done enough damage.
