While perusing Drudge after a long day at work I saw a link quoting VP Cheney, so naturally I clicked it. I didn’t really find much in the story that was useful, but then I came across this gem of a quote by some anonymous staffer:
“The president sees it as a chance to present our points and advance our interests, and you’re not conceding anything,” the official said. “What’s more powerful that the president of the United States making these points to your face?”
That, is an excellent question. What is more powerful than the President of the United States making his case, not his country’s, directly to your face?
Below the fold I shall show you.
Which, oddly enough, brings me back to the original reason I clicked on the Drudge link, VP Cheney:
There is no reason for an American president to bow to anyone. Our friends and allies don’t expect it, and our enemies see it as a sign of weakness.
Once again, VP Dick Cheney beats down the Obama Administration in fifty words or less.
