With Tillerson as the country’s top diplomat, the opportunity to redefine the rationale and methods for the entirety of our interactions with other nations is unparalleled. While this has been true to some extent since World War II, this appointment institutionalizes the view that our national diplomacy will be guided by resource acquisition.
Trump made scores of promises he could not possibly fulfill. The biggest was the same one fascist strongmen always offer: transcendent national renewal, built upon the cleansing of dangerous untermenschen from the body politic.
Not only did John Bolton support the scheme to attack Iraq, but he actively promoted the official lies and propaganda that led up to the US invasion.
“I frankly hold Dick Cheney in really high regard in his role as vice president and as an American,” Pence said in an interview on ABC’s “This Week” that was taped on Saturday and aired on Sunday. “Vice President Cheney had experience in Congress as I do and he was very active in working with members of the House and the Senate,” Pence said.
The emerging rift in the GOP is making itself evident within the party’s most important family: Many members of the Bush family as well as their former advisers are hesitant to endorse Trump, unlike right-wingers like Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld.
Donald Trump mentioned the one indisputable fact you’re never, ever supposed to point out as a Republican: George W. Bush was president on 9/11. The only way he could go any further would be to actually throw a shoe at a Bush.
Because there’s really one thing Jeb needs to do right now: Remind the public just how well a Bush administration can function together for America.
In new biography, Bush 41 says Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld were too hawkish and that their harsh stance damaged the reputation of the United States.
Dick Cheney’s new book deserves to be dismissed and ignored, except that to ignore it is to let the subversive ideas therein go unchallenged. They are an affront to our history, to our values, to our culture, and must be fought.
If Jeb Bush wants to argue that George W. Bush did a nice job of bringing America together and trying to avoid the demonization of Muslims in the aftermath of 9/11, there’s a case to be made. But W.’s record of “keeping us safe” in comparison to every other modern president is non-existent.
In a truly remarkable interview, Vice President Biden sat down with Stephen Colbert to talk about his life, his family, and the recent loss of his son Beau.
Watch this marvelous dual display of poor self-awareness from the ex-Veep who helped to create the disasters plaguing the Middle East, and from one of his loudest media cheerleaders. But who knows, perhaps Cheney is so repugnant and tone-deaf that he might just help Obama’s chances of pulling off the Iran deal.
In a speech on the Iran deal President Obama chastised Dick Cheney and his ilk. He didn’t mention the former vice president by name, but few in the audience would have missed the reference.
In his book The Great War of Our Time, former CIA deputy Director Michael Morell explains the blunder that led to Saddam Hussein being deposed and sent him into hiding in a spider hole.
That’s not a red balloon with a frowny face drawn on — it’s former Vice President Dick Cheney — and Jon Stewart has got some questions for him about Iran.
