Liz Cheney Thinks America Is Too Weak and Fragile to Withstand a Terror Attack


What a surprise: According to Bob Woodward’s new book, President Obama said some very true things that, if taken out of context and distorted, are exactly the type of thing that disingenuous conservative hawks love to pounce on, and Liz Cheney just pounced.

Here’s what Obama said about withstanding a terror attack:

We can absorb a terrorist attack. We’ll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever … we absorbed it and we are stronger.”

And here’s Cheney’s disgraceful response:

And here’s Cheney’s disgraceful response:

Weird, Cheney somehow forgot to include the part where Obama said “We’ll do everything we can to prevent it” in her statement. It’s too bad, because that completely negates everything she just wrote about Obama not even trying to protect the country!

Apart from that appalling lack of context, does Cheney think that America can’t absorb a terrorist attack? Does she think that America will curl into a ball and hand over the keys to Al Qaeda the next time terrorists strike? Does she think America is that lacking in fortitude and perseverance? Her comments suggest an alarming absence of confidence in the American people. Seriously, why does supposed patriot Liz Cheney hate America so much?
