Dick Cheney Said a Nice Thing About President Obama


The last time one of President Obama’s most dogged critics complimented his handling of the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound, it turned out to be totally sarcastic, and we felt dumb for not realizing it immediately. You know the old saying in Texas/Tennessee: “Fool me once, shame on … shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.” So after we read that Dick Cheney, of all people, had praised Obama on Fox News Sunday — “You’ve got to give him a lot of credit for making the decision to have SEAL Team 6 conduct the raid that got bin Laden. There’s no question that was his responsibility, and I think he handled it well. I give him high marks for making that decision” — we also watched the video fourteen times, just to make sure it was sincere, and we’re 98 percent certain that it was.
