A Look Back At Lingering Anti-Obama Propaganda From Dick Cheney


Last August Fox News Sean Hannity gave Dick Cheney opportunity to propagandize against President Obama as the nation moved towards the November General Elections.

"Obama is a terrible president." Cheney railed.  And he did so without one iota of evidence to support his false diatribe.

Time for a bit of perspective.  Perspective is critical as we move away from  April 25, 2013: Bush Library day.  Yesterday, Pew Research published a Daily Number piece.  The piece includes approval  rating data from the Bush inauguration through his departure from the Oval Office in 2009. The data and focus of the piece is George W. Bush with respect to the dedication of his library and his public perception as he left office.  Dick Cheney is included in on chart as he was culpable in administration of the verifiable worse presidential administration in recent US History.

We at the TPI have written and published many pieces about Bush/Cheney actual job performance (policies, practices, malfeasance and failures). Let's take a very brief peep at Cheney's approval ratings.  We offer approval ratings based on the data as a true measure of credibility from the perspective of voters and polling survey respondents.

A Case of Credibility

By CBS News (article excerpts)

(CBS) President Bush will leave office as one of the most unpopular departing presidents in history, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll showing Mr. Bush’s final approval rating at 22 percent.  

Seventy-three percent say they disapprove of the way Mr. Bush has handled his job as president over the last eight years. 

Vice President Dick Cheney also leaves office amid negative perceptions, as his approval rating stands at just 13 percent.



As Fox News trots-out the aging and increasingly inane Dick Cheney, the network fails to care that data trials exist. Data trails that place Cheney's rambles and self-serving drivel in true perspective.

Cheney just before the 2012 elections, "Obama is a terrible president", did not move voters to casting vote for Romney. The Hannity interview has other implications.  As the Bush Library was dedicated on April 25, 2013 (to open in May), the one-day politically correct drivel and oozing about Bush was disingenuous and frankly sickening.


Data Trumps Emotion And Propaganda


It only takes a few minutes to locate 2009 data indicating President Obama's economic team's success in stopping the nation's slide into an economic depression. A depression that would have proven disastrous for most of us who live in the American Middle and lower income strata.

President Obama's American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Stimulus) was signed into law February 17, 2009 (Q1 2009). as you view the following sets of data, it is important to keep in mind many economist felt the Stimulus should have been approved at the request $1.2 Trillion Vs. the GOP shaved $787 billion dollars. Additional Stimulus could have proven even more effective at turning around the critically ill Bush economy.

Market Commentary: October 29th, 2009: 10 am (PST). Posted by Manu Walia
“Today’s moderate increase for third quarter GDP should provide some psychological lift for consumers and businesses since it is the first positive growth for the overall economy in just over a year. And financial markets are likely to like it since it is all about expectations and the advance estimate topped expectations. Real GDP in the third quarter rebounded an annualized 3.5 percent, after declining by only 0.7 percent in the second quarter. The third quarter boost came in above the market consensus for a 3.0 percent increase.”

“Jobless claims are not offering a clear indication of what to expect for the October employment report. Initial claims held steady for a fourth straight week, edging 1,000 lower to 530,000 in an Oct. 24 week that was not skewed by special factors. The four-week average is at 526,250 and does show improvement, down about 20,000 vs. this time last month. Continuing claims, where the latest data is for the Oct. 17 week, fell substantially, down 148,000 to 5.797 million and, for the first time since April, bringing the four-week average below 6 million at 5.961 million.”
