Former Vice President, Dick Cheney does not seem to know when to shut his mouth. Cheney is now inciting the right-wing fringe. He is blaming President Obama for failing to stop the so-called "crotch bomber" and failing at "restructuring American society."
According to the Los Angeles Times, Cheney is quoted as saying, "We are at war and when President Obama pretends we aren't, it makes us less safe. It doesn't fit with the view of the world he brought with him to the Oval Office. It doesn't fit with what seems to be the goal of his presidency — the restructuring of American society."
Cheney's strident criticism gives aid and comfort to our enemies, as it is dividing the nation rather than uniting it. Unlike the situation after 9/11, the nation is now more divided than it was before the crotch bomber's botched attack. If there had been deaths, the mood would be downright ugly.
If Cheney wanted to run things, he should have run for president.
