Lamar Alexander Slams Cheney, Defends Obama
Posted by Adam Blickstein

Dick Cheney was pretty unhinged last night as he struggles to defend his failed record in Afghanistan. Needless to say, several government officials and a retired military officer more serious about national security than partisan sniping responded forcefully to Cheney's absurd attacks. Call me surprised, then, when one of those level-headed politicians offering a sobering rebuttal of the former Vice President turned out to be Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander, who today said:

"I think President Obama is entitled to take sufficient time to decide what  our long-term role ought to be in Afghanistan. Then I think he should come to  Congress and say to the American people what that plan is and see if he can  persuade us and all of the American people of the rightness of it because he  needs to have support all the way through to the end of that mission, so I want  him to take the time to get it right." 

Maybe the water's edge just got a little closer to the Capitol building? Full video below:

I'd like to give due credit to a similar public expression by Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) back on September 27 (

Now we know who will be the next Republican to be called a RINO and ostracized by the idiots that have hijacked that party. How long did it take for the Whigs to no longer exist?

Obama is waffling on Afghanistan himself !!!

Nice article. I saw the video and I must say such a tremendous post. I like the speech of Lamar Alexander. He is truly fantastic. Thanks a lot for sharing.

The company thinks not. A&F is still moving forward UGG Cozy Slipper with international expansion plans and, unlike other retailers, didn't significantly reduce inventory for the year. CEO Michael Jeffries is daringly optimistic and UGG Handbags perhaps emboldened by the way he handled the 2001 recession. Bucking conventional UGG Infant's Erin wisdom at the time, he raised prices instead of succumbing to pressure to UGG Nightfall slash them. "The important thing is that I didn't overreact," he told the New York Times in 2004. "When things start to go down, many retailers kill themselves; they throw out UGG Sundance the baby with the bath water."

However, that strategic review seemed to draw an important conclusion; that creating a Jeffersonian democracy in Afghanistan was not possible and so US policy should be focused on "disrupting, dismantling and defeating Al Qaeda." The words counter-insurgency were never even used in the speech when the President announced his policy in March (although in fairness they are all over the interagency white paper).

I'm the same way, I do my best to remain neutral. It's hard, if you communicate with the person the other person dislikes, then you fall out of favor with them! I simple can't dislike a person, just because someone else does, I just can't.
