Don't you get the sense that former VP Dick Cheney is turning into the official spokesman for the Republican Party? Any headlines seem to involve Cheney vs The White House. or Rush Limbaugh vs The White House. It happened again this weekend. Read more below and the link to the video is here.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney says he believes the U.S. has become more vulnerable to a potential terrorist attack since the Obama administration took power.
Cheney cites interrogation and surveillance policies put in place after the Sept. 11 attacks. He says those policies kept the U.S. safe, but the Obama administration is now critical of them — and raising the possibility of prosecuting government lawyers who signed off on some policies.
Cheney says that means that in the future, the U.S. will not have the same safeguards it's had for the past eight years.
He says getting rid of certain harsh interrogation techniques or a terrorist surveillance program reduces the flow of good intelligence.
He spoke Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation."
You know what? I'm thinking The White House has no problem with an Obama vs Cheney matchup. What do you think?
