White House uses Cheney to bolster support for Iran Deal

US Politics

“It is madness,” Dick Cheney said today, of the Iran Deal. And the White House loves it! Notice the brilliant use of Megyn Kelly of Fox News in this White House video that just went up today, below. “You were so wrong about so much at the expense of so many,” she said to the former Vice President last year.

The White House video uses Cheney as a punching bag:

Vice President Dick Cheney opposes the Iran nuclear deal. If his reasoning sounds familiar, it’s because we’ve heard it from him before on the Iraq war.

You get to hear Cheney’s greatest hits, including:

I really do believe we will be greeted as liberators.

Dick Cheney is proving to be the best friend the Iran Deal ever had. Because with enemies like Cheney and Boteach, the Iran deal doesn’t need friends. Think of the most outspoken deal opponents. Shmuley Boteach, Dick Cheney, Benjamin Netanyahu, Alan Dershowitz. Tomorrow Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and even Glenn Beck are holding an anti-deal rally. You could hardly imagine a less credible group of spokespeople. The “serious people” at AIPAC– if there are any– must be looking at this clown show and sighing

      Yes! even better than using, say, Fiddler on the Roof.

      I shall have to watch it again. I didn’t hear the music because of the massive sound of floodgates opening.

    Whose next out of the trap.

    George –“Mission accomplished ” Bush.

    You just know these fools are at the end of their tether.

    Did you catch the despicable Cheney response to the interviewer pointing out that Americas parents do not think the war was worth it.

    ” So” Chaney responded.

    Easy for him to say.He had no horse in the race. They were all safely ensconced in the Chaney bunker protected by someone else,s kids.He is a vile arrogant war criminal who should be on trial at the Hague.

    I love it! A very, very, impressive presentation, showing how wrong Cheney was then, and is still wrong today, plus it shows his lack of remorse. Brilliant! He has some nerve criticizing a policy avoiding a war, and speaking as if the ones he started were successful.

    This lying old war criminal must be put out to pasture, fenced in, and never allowed to roam this country again.

    Doesn’t Liz Cheney look like an idiot blinking next to him?

    Why do I get the distinct impression that Dick and Lynne (in stark contrast with Liz) Cheney have all but gone their separate ways?
    Did Lynne find out something about Dick Cheney’s past actions* that makes her reluctant to appear in public with her husband (except for the occasional pro forma appearance)?

    Great music, too, that tuba suggesting a great source of flatulence while the lighter instruments suggest aimless wandering around.

    The battle over the Iran deal has been lost by Aipac and won by the white house. most even keeled supporters of israel want to leave the issue alone and go on to the next thing on the agenda, synchronizing positions between US and israel regarding Iran not in the context of nuclear but in the context of the region and geopolitics and weapons. I suppose until there is a vote in congress it will still be in the news. but the game is really over except for the shouting.

        Obama has already promised to double direct aid to Israel; atop billions more in bomb replacements, some $2B so far this year; if this happens, Israel will be approaching getting 50% of total US foreign aid–not even counting aid to Egypt is conditioned on Egypt playing defense for Israel. Main media doesn’t blink an eye…

    This movie is still war propaganda! “Wrong” is not the way to describe the supreme crime against humanity for which the Nazi government was dangled in Nuremberg.

      Somebody should do a new definition of evil, using Chaney as prime example.

    Y.Freidman: “…synchronizing Israel and U.S. actions…”? There you have it: the tail wagging the dog, again. The statements underlines the distressing fact that the Iran issue has been a Zionist ploy to eliminate Iran as a strategic threat to Israel’s glorious goal of reclaiming the land of Eretz Israel and to use its naive, overly solicitous ally to bear the burden of costs and casualities to achieve its goal. The Zionist influence in U.S. politics has become part of its DNA. Where is the brave politician who will stand up to the evils of Zionist manipulation thereby freeing our country’s allegiance to the Likkud agenda of wars, conflicts, apartheid, ethnic cleansing, et al?

    Saudi Arabia now says in public the Iran Deal is OK. That leaves Netanyahu alone (but with the entire GOP). Obama bought off SA with a $1B arms sale–actual sale, not a gift as he’s promised Israel ($2B in replacement gift bombs & double current annual foreign aid gift to israel)
