Defending Mr. Cheney

Former Vice President Cheney's comments regarding President Obama seem to be well-measured and right on target.

We continue to see the thin skin of Obama, his regime and supporters when it comes to holding them accountable for his failure, broken campaign promises, loose spending and lack of credibility. 

As for Mr. Cheney being strident in his comments: Well I suggest a review of the hysteric comments by a Vice President Al Gore in attacking then President Bush if you want an example of being over the top.

The only things positive about Gore's assault was that it actually showed a brief glimpse and glimmer of personality and actual zeal even if totally false.

Gordon Rogers, 37215

These attacks on Obama started in Feb./Mar., 2009, ONE month into office.
The carpet cleaners in the Oval Office for the rug hadn't finished yet trying to remove the stench from the Bush administration.
Yet, Bush was "fully" President on 9/11, nine months into office, an event superceding or equalling Pearl Harbor in it's magnitude. "Oh, that was really Clinton's fault", the GOP chorus chimed in. You simply cannot win any argument with psychotics. Look no further than their love affair with Palin, a quitter, but perfectly suited for the Republican party.

Right d7 - seems like gordon Rogers is just another psycho right wing fanatic who needs a good water boarding , the preferred method of cleansing by his kind .

Good morning.

Dick Cneney is the anti-Christ. Mr. Gordon Rogers is just a follower of Cheney. His letter is dripping with the usual neo-con dribble.

I think that Obama's skin is very thick.

The differance between voteing for "none of the above" and not voteing is that you put vote on what you think. Not vote looks as if you just don't care.

Great comment id. Must have taken a lot of effort and brain power for you to have come up with that tiny bit of thinking. lol

Reading the post from yesterday. I hope chief thinks fast. He is so silly when he dose.

By: Captain Nemo on 1/8/10 at 8:35

With all the post chief was spewing yesterday, I bet he wore a hand puppet or two. lol

By: house_of_pain on 1/8/10 at 8:40

Why is Cheney relevant?

By: Captain Nemo on 1/8/10 at 8:41

The sid Dragon and pee wee show was interesting, yesterday. I had good laugh this morning and can't wait to see what these fringe monkeys will post today.

chief think fast.

Why is Cheney relevant?

Because he is the only thing that RAT party has. The GOP needs to find people that are willing to stand up for the party.

By: dargent7 on 1/8/10 at 8:48

House: Cheney's relevant because he's just off the airways for the Holidays. He'll make a quick comback any day, slamming Obama. TCP should of ran these two LTE's on the same day, yesterday.

Over all I like the new Star Trek. However that time line that the new movie has me worried. In all Si Fi stories when a time line is changed the furture has been altered. So in the future will Captain Picard meet the Borg at the right time or not at all?

This is fictual, but great water conversation. Like football on Monday. lol

By: gdiafante on 1/8/10 at 8:55

House, see the game last night? I watched some of it in between periods at the Preds game.

Cheney again?? Is this all NCP can publish? Cheney and Woods?? I think I may write an LTE on how my prediction of 1.41 cm of snow was the most accurate in the state.

By: dargent7 on 1/8/10 at 8:59

gdia: If you start making "predictions", you'll be lumped into the same category as Al Gore.

75 years ago today Elvis was born. We already beat Cheney to death yesterday. Let's do Elvis trivia!

By: gdiafante on 1/8/10 at 9:04

Ok, Elvis trivia...

Elvis is really:

A. Dead
B. An Alien that went home
C. A vampire
D. Dick Cheney

Dusty
The moderate third party I am thinking about does not run like the any parties we have now. It want be Green Party or Libertarian either. It would be more of a spoiler. Its power and membership would be as a neutralizer against the extremist of both parties.

By: gdiafante on 1/8/10 at 9:08

I say we start a third party and call it "The Second Party". The first order of business will to have this idea seconded.

By: Captain Nemo on 1/8/10 at 9:15

The day Elvis died, I was stand at the window of then Hyatt Hotel. I was inspecting a room on the 14th floor as a cold front was coming a cross Nashville. An alert was coming across the TV and I thought that we were in for bad weather. It was the news of Elvis.

What a coincedent that wind was coming through Nashville at that very time. As if it was telling of his death.

By: gdiafante on 1/8/10 at 9:21

I came in from the back yard to my mother crying and "Can't Help Falling in Love" was playing on the radio. The DJ said a "great one from the late Elvis Presley". I didn't know what that meant and my dad said it meant Elvis was dead. I didn't think people like that died.

Then I heard "Burning Love" and realized he had been dead a while.

By: house_of_pain on 1/8/10 at 9:32

Nemo, my mother managed the Hyatt for a little while.
I miss the rotating restaurant.
gd, I didn't see any of the game until this morning. I knew who was going to win.

By: dargent7 on 1/8/10 at 9:32

I think I really missed out in a lot of Iconic deaths: Too young for JFK and Marilyn Monroe. I didn't appreciate Elvis when in high school. John Lennon kinda of, Jim Morrison, a little, Sonny Bono, not at all.
Dick Cheney, never. Oh wait, he's not dead yet.

By: HokeyPokey on 1/8/10 at 9:36

I think that somebody should tell Cheney that Elvis' dying was the best career move he'd ever made.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 1/8/10 at 9:37

anyone listen to Nashville Jumps this morning? one of my favorites was played - Grandpa Can Boogie Too

By: Blanketnazi2 on 1/8/10 at 9:37

lol, hokey.

By: gdiafante on 1/8/10 at 9:37

Yeah, I missed out on JFK, RFK, King and Morrison. Remember Elvis and was totally devastated when Lennon was shot. That one still hurts.

By: eastnashville37207 on 1/8/10 at 9:45

Bush, member of Skull and Bones, Bilderburg etc and Cheney are nothing but puppets for the Trilateral Commission. This isn't just a republican issue, the Trilateral Commission is who chooses the next President to carry out their plans and that includes both parties. Let's not forget to thank David Rockefeller for setting up these so called secret societies and their plans to crush every aspect of our lives as we know it which includes depopulation.
Cheney is nothing other than a puppet just as Obama is.

By: dargent7 on 1/8/10 at 9:50

I forgot to mention Sinatra. But, at least he lived until his 80's.

gdia: This was on Jeopardy! last night...."Who was legally blind when "Double Fantasy" was released"? The answer was John Lennon! Didn't know he was legally blind. John Kay, Ray Orbison, Milsap, yes, not Lennon.

By: dargent7 on 1/8/10 at 9:52

Could someone check on "eastnashville"?

Capt. Nemo, haven't you heard of the third party 'Tea Party' coming to town next week? It is going to have some very powerful speakers to 'tell it like it is'. Some of them are Joseph Farah of the WorldNetDaily.net organization and Sarah Palil (our next president?). I believe Phil Valentine of 99.7FM is going to be the host.

I will attend it mentally but I have to work (to make some money) physically.

P.S. making some money is to get me through the Oba mah administration.

By: gdiafante on 1/8/10 at 10:00

Palin as the next President? Please. Americans aren't that stupid.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 1/8/10 at 10:00

hosted by Phil Valentine - lol!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 1/8/10 at 10:01

yeah, Palin knows how to tell it like it is - lol!

By: dargent7 on 1/8/10 at 10:01

This "board" is starting to freak me out.
Yesterday we had someone who said McCain should be President because he "got more votes and land mass", and today we've got another nut who says Obama "was chosen" by a secret underground panel.
And I thought Palin was nuts with her "Death Panel" invention.

Hopefully, the Mayans are onto something and the world does end in 2012. I bet God's had just about enough of this nonsense.

By: gdiafante on 1/8/10 at 10:01

Oh, and I hate to tell you yogi, but Tea baggers are (rich) Republicans. There is no third party, unless you are asserting the GOP is about to split in two...

By: slacker on 1/8/10 at 10:04

nazi, Yoko & Wing are gonna cover the Beach Boys ''Pet Sounds'' album. It will be huge.

By: Dragon on 1/8/10 at 10:04

But, Obama is really an alien from the Alpha Centauri system. That's why he has no birth certificate.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 1/8/10 at 10:07

oh, slackerdomas....say it isn't so! LOL

By: dargent7 on 1/8/10 at 10:08

Tell you want; this planet is becoming so weird and uninhabitable I'm thinking of becoming an illegal somewhere else. Who know's? Maybe the people on Alpha C. are new to the concept.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 1/8/10 at 10:09

hey, they discovered a cave on the moon that might be inhabitable. maybe HDTV can provide some tips on "gray" building on the moon.

By: slacker on 1/8/10 at 10:12

Cheney's political instincts should kick in, and he should shut up on this.
I thought he was smarter than that. At least George is hunkering down at the ranch.

By: dargent7 on 1/8/10 at 10:18

Slacker: Bush is hard at work trying to come up with enough books to fill 1 aisle in his Presidential Library. Sadly, "Cat in the Hat" is discontinued.

The Tea Bagger Party is a one issue no brain joke.

The Tea Baggers will choke.
