Avuncular insanity

Dick Cheney continues to be held in high regard by CNN and the rest of the Fox-driven media - when he should be held in a high security correctional institution. Despite his proven willingness to lie and inability to distinguish truth from falsehood, CNN still thrusts his propaganda statements forward without any disclaimers other than his own.

The vice president also said Obama has implemented "radical" far left policies even though he campaigned as a conventional Democrat.

"He got elected as a liberal Democrat, but conventional in the sense of falling within the parameters of the national Democratic Party," Cheney said. "He's demonstrated pretty conclusively now during his first year in office that he's more radical than that, that he's farther outside the parameters…of what we've traditionally had in Democratic presidents in years past."

If Cheney thinks President Obama has moved far to the left, ol' Darth has lost his mind. The reason Obama has been a disappointment is that he is not even close to liberal enough. A few opportunities Obama has passed up to be liberal:
  • Afghanistan
  • Iraq - are we still there?
  • Nationalization of insolvent banks
  • Single-payer health care
  • A firm end to the Bushist monarchist view of executive branch power
  • Prosecution of the rife and rank crimes of the Bushists
  • Progressive taxation
Where exactly has Obama been liberal? He's been a mainstream Keynesian. Is the borrowing what Cheney objects to? As if he never borrowed a trillion dollars for a war of choice... But then Cheney's particular political talent has always been able to say frankly insane things as if they made sense.

I would be in favor of a National Credit institution that assigns emergency credit for all citizens, and initial start-up cards.

I think it would do well. It would be a great source of rev for the Gov.
