Cheney Takes Swipe At Obama During Groundbreaking Ceremony: “This May Be the Only Shovel Ready Project in America” (Video)

A slimmed Dick Cheney took a swipe at Barack Obama today at the groundbreaking ceremony of the Bush Library:
“This may be the only shovel ready project in America.”

CBS has more on Cheney’s speech today.

At groundbreaking ceremony in Dallas for the George W. Bush Presidential Center today, former Vice President Dick Cheney said “history is beginning to come around” to a more positive view of former President George W. Bush

…He spoke admiringly of Mr. Bush’s actions in the wake of the Sept. 11th attacks, telling the former president that “because you were determined to throw back the enemy, we did not suffer another 9/11 or something even worse.”

Cheney, who (unlike Mr. Bush) has been a vocal critic of President Obama, also took a shot at the current administration. Speaking of his expectation that construction would move quickly on the presidential center following the groundbreaking, Cheney quipped that “this may be the only shovel ready project in America.” The reference was to the Obama-supported stimulus package that Republicans have criticized as ineffective.

It must really hurt those democrats to know that Cheney’s right.
