Dick Cheney at American Enterprise Institute

Here's Dick Cheney's lecture at the American Enterprise Institute today. His speech is simply riveting. His continued clarity on the exigencies of our national security is unparalleled. His understanding of our enemies is sage and statesmanlike. His indictment of the Democratic Party's counter-terror policies ... devastating. The text of the speech is here. Do yourself a favor: Take the time to absorb this presentation completely:

Pete Hegseth, William Kristol, and Mitt Romney compare Cheney's speech to President Obama's address on national security at the National Archives this morning.

Here's this
from Romney:

Barack Obama is having a hard time going from politician to president. His speech and his policies have one foot in campaign mode and another in presidential mode. He struggles to explain how he is keeping faith with the liberal advocates who promoted his campaign but in doing so, he breaks faith with the interests of the American people. When it comes to protecting the nation, we have a conflicted president. And his address today was more tortured than the enhanced interrogation techniques he decries.

Former VP Cheney was impressive - it is soooo cool to see several Vulcans like Dr Rice and Former VP Cheney totally ANNIHILATE inappropriate, boring handwringing and faux outrage over the GWOT.

He dissed ideas about Gitmo as a recruiting tool, that EIT were torture or that magical principles were worth way more than people's lives.

Thanks Courtney!

As we say here in Georgia, Cheney pretty much stomped Obama's ass flat.

Obama probably had his worst day as POTUS to date.

Good.

Let's hope this is the beginning of a trend.
