Of Course Cheney Doesn't Understand Obama
June 8, 2015

So Dick Cheney said this:

I’ve tried for a long time, John, to understand what makes him tick, and frankly, I don’t know,” Cheney told host John Catsimatidis on AM 970’s “The Cats Roundtable” in New York.

And why would he possibly understand a man who doesn't wake up in the morning thinking of ways to screw his fellow man and grind poor people into ashes in the gutter, after all?

Oh, and Iraq. And ISIS. Boy howdy, he really doesn't seem to understand that at all.

The former vice president cited U.S.-led coalition airstrikes against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) there as one example of what he called confusing logic.

“I don’t think he really wants to be there,” Cheney said.

To quote a man who lost one child in that region and has three others in the face of danger, "sending someone 7,000 miles away to fight guys in white pickup trucks is not [ISIS] coming here to cut our heads off."

No one really wants to be there, and we wouldn't be there if it weren't for the likes of Richard Cheney.

If Cheney had even a semblance of humanity he might understand President Obama. But how can a zombie possibly understand a real person?

Can you help us out?
