His visit was meant to thank Australia and Japan for their support in Iraq. But a series of public appearances and media interviews, Cheney's tone was typically feisty.
Answering growing criticism in the U.S. and Australia, he defended the Iraq war as a "remarkable achievement" in one speech, and dismissed suggestions his influence in Washington is waning.
GOI: Brought to you by the same clown who said a long time ago that the insurgency in Iraq was in it's "last throes."
He flips everything around. Obviously Iraq is a stunning failure so instead of admitting to that he spins it to "remarkable achievement." I think he's referring to Halliburton's (and the other contractors) involvement in Iraq being a "remarkable achievement."
I like what Barack Obama said about Cheney yesterday:"When Dick Cheney says it's a good thing, you know that you've probably got some big problems."
GOI: As usual Obama is spot on. Does anyone outside the "Jim Jones 30 percent crowd" believe or even listen to a word Cheney says anymore? Hold on a second. We assume he's a "man." He could very well be a Sith Lord.
