Dick Cheney: Obama “would much rather spend the money on food stamps than…support for our troops.”

Barack Obama is just as much of a joke on the international scene as he is in America. Not only is he wrecking the country domestically, he’s decimating the military so we’ll be ineffective abroad as well.


Former Vice President Dick Cheney responded Monday night to the Obama administration’s proposal to cut the U.S. Army to its lowest point since before World War II.

Calling into Fox News’ “Hannity,” Cheney declared the proposed cuts to be “absolutely dangerous” and “just devastating.”

…“The other thing I now for a fact too, Sean, from keeping in touch with some of my old friends that I used to deal with in the Middle East – they no longer have any confidence at all in American security guarantees,” he said. “They’re absolutely convinced that they can no longer trust the United States to keep its commitments – that includes the Israelis, Saudis, a lot of others in that part of the world.”

“They peddle this line that now we’re going to pivot to Asia, but they’ve never justified it,” he added. “And I think the whole thing is not driven by any change in world circumstances, it is driven by budget considerations. He would much rather spend the money on food stamps than he would on a strong military or support for our troops.”

Dick Cheney is absolutely right, but I have to ask: Why does it always seem to be left to him to take these pointed shots at Obama? Sure, as the former Vice-President, he brings a lot of gravitas to the table, but where are the Republicans who are in house? When does John McCain find the courage to take on Obama? Where’s Mitch McConnell? John Boehner? Eric Cantor? How about John Cornyn? Paul Ryan? These guys are basically bumps on a log who do nothing but mouth boring boilerplate that everyone forgets five minutes after it’s said. Meanwhile, Dick Cheney tries to tear Obama’s head off when he goes after him. Of course, maybe that’s why conservatives across the country respect Dick Cheney and consider the current GOP “leaders” to be bad jokes.
