Cheney Speaks From 13% Approval, And Chooses Wrong Topic


   Question.

If you wanted to know how not to stop serial killers would you seek out the BTK Killer of "Wichita Kansas?

If you wanted to know how to hit home runs with man's natural talents and learned skills, would you seek out Mark Maguire, Sammy Sosa or Bobby Bonds?

How about asking Roger Clements how effective a a major league pitcher can win 25 to 230 games per season from natural talent?

If you still need examples of outright silliness, how about asking Sarah Palin anything about US History?

If you cannot find sensible rational reason for any of the above, can you find the rationale in media asking Dick Cheney his thoughts on anything?

We are talking a man who his own political party hid him from sight during election campaigns (2008 and 2012), and one who served along with George W. Bush in running our nation into an abyss.  In 2011 The Atlantic reported.
 When Vice President Dick Cheney left office, his approval rating stood at a staggeringly low 13 percent. Few political figures in history have been so reviled.
Before today's Huffington Post article about Cheney criticizing President Obama's appointments to Cabinet positions, consider a quick run through the Atlantic piece.

Lest we forget Cheney and his staff (specifically Scooter Libby) in Outing Valerie Plame, an active CIA operative. Libby took the fall for the outing, but was not given jail time. While we do not believe  Libby can practice law (resulting from his conviction), we know Bush refused to give him a full pardon for his historic actions against one of our own. 

The Atlantic
Dick Cheney was a self-aggrandizing criminal who used his knowledge as a Washington insider to subvert both informed public debate about matters of war and peace and to manipulate presidential decisionmaking, sometimes in ways that angered even George W. Bush.
