Cheney told it like it is on Meet the Press. Man, I wish Cheney was younger. I'd love to vote for him for president:
Whoop for that. As usual, the leftist talking points are tired, old, and illogical:
"I don't know how you can explain five years of no attacks, five years of successful disruption of attacks, five years of defeating the efforts of al Qaeda to come back and kill more Americans. You have got to give some credence to the notion that maybe somebody did something right," Cheney told NBC's "Meet the Press."
He added: "We've done a helluva job here at home in terms of homeland security."
Democrats charge the Iraq war has sucked away billions of dollars that could have been spent to improve domestic security, served as a breeding ground for terrorists, left Osama bin Laden still at large and exposed Afghanistan's U.S.-backed government to a renewed threat from the Taliban.You know, 52% of the national budget each year goes to personal entitlement spending. Thats $1.45 trillion. The defense budget, by comparison, is a measely 16%, or $466 billion. When Democrats cut pork and end their campaign of huge government with "liberty and free money for all" they can talk about "sucking away" dollars.
