Liz Cheney Calls Out Obama

with 2 comments

The more I hear from Liz Cheney, the more I am sure that she is ready to take her father’s place as our country’s preeminent conservative.   Today, she called out Obama for repeated criticism of Afghanistan leader Hamid Karzai.  Her comments were from the heart and cut right to yet another failing as President:

Afghan President Karzai, whose support we need if we are going to succeed in Afghanistan, is being treated to an especially dangerous and juvenile display from this White House. They dress him down publicly almost daily and refuse to even say that he is an ally.

I understand that Obama may have been tempted to call Karzai out several times this past year like when he rigged his reelection, or when he recently threatened to join the Taliban, or even recently as he has strengthened ties with Iran and Ahmadinejad.  However, can Obama understand how hard it is to govern when you are being attacked daily as an enemy of the United States and when every move you make is derided as being against the best interests of our country?

To spotlight just how horrible Obama’s comments about Karzai have been, I have created a little quiz.  Simply identify which of these comments were directed from Obama or his staff at Hamid Karzai and which of these comments were directed from Liz Cheney or her father at President Obama.

1. “[He]has dishonored fallen soldiers by engaging in a strategy of appeasing its enemies.”
2. “[He]has been declared the winner … so obviously he is the legitimate leader of the country.”
3. “We ought to calm the rhetoric and engage as strategic partners intent on bringing about peace and security.”
4. “He is making some choices that, in my mind, will, in fact, raise the risk to the American people of another attack.”
5. “[He] must stop dithering while American troops are in danger.”
6. “Every time he delays, defers, debates, changes his position, it begins to raise questions: Is [He] really behind what they’ve been asked to do?”

How did you do?  The answers are posted below the picture of the Cheneys.

Answers: #2 was said by Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.  #3 came from Obama himself.  The others were all courtesy of the Cheneys.
