The Cheneys

by Larry Tate on June 18, 2014

Dick and Liz Cheney have an Op-Ed over at the Wall Street Journal where they place the blame for the collapse of Iraq on the shoulders of the president. Reading it is just unbearable. I literally had to look away several times and repress my gag reflex. Is there, in all American history, a more execrable duo?

But what I wanted to single out here was one single line from their piece: “Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.” Forget the fact that this line seems far more appropriate for the epitaph of George W. Bush. Forget the seemingly impossible lack of self-awareness. Forget the clinically insane immunity to shame or misgiving. The thing that is so utterly loathsome about this sentence is that it echoes one of  Winston Churchill’s more famous utterances: “Never was so much owed by so many to so few.” The words came to Churchill as he witnessed the heroic efforts of the Royal Air Force as they battled the Nazi Luftwaffe in August of 1940. The reversal of the line, I suppose, is a particularly sharp, but cryptic, attempt to paint Obama as an appeaser, whose weakness is rivaled only by his misjudgment. But now the Nazis are played by ISIS and al Qaeda and Obama is Chamberlain in blackface.

The whole argument is so patently absurd and self-serving that I find it impossible that any thinking person would allow them space in their newspaper to make their case. The authors of the War on Terror, Torture Incorporated, Gitmo, and the disruption of the entire Middle East should be forever disqualified from the public arena.
