Dick Cheney was on This Week this morning. During the interview he was asked about cut-and-runner Joe Biden’s claim that Iraq would be one of the great achievements of the Obama Administration (even though they both voted to leave the country to the terrorists).
Dick Cheney got a good laugh out of that.
From the interview:
ABC’s Jonathan Karl: One thing he (Joe Biden) said is that he thinks Iraq would ultimately prove to be one of the greatest achievements of the Obama Administration.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney: Well (laugh) I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by my friend Joe Biden. I’m glad he now believes Iraq is a success. Of course, Obama and Biden campaigned from one end of the country to another for two years criticizing our Iraq policy. They opposed the surge that was absolutely crucial to our getting to the point where we’re at now with respect to Iraq. For them to try to take credit for what’s happened in Iraq strikes me as a little strange. If they had had their way, if we followed the policies of pursued from the outset or abdicated, Saddam Hussein would still be in power in Baghdad today.
