After talking about how “remarkable” it is that President Obama couldn’t get the Republicans and ConservaDem Ben Nelson to go along with more spending and calling the Democrats and the President irresponsible for wanting more stimulus spending for the economy, Liz Cheney throws this stink bomb out there.

Cheney: I think that you are getting very close to a situation where the President’s economic policies are becoming a national security threat to the country. And I think that you will see that play out very clearly in the elections in November, people focused not just from a political standpoint of getting more Republican seats, but on electing people who will be willing to stand up and stop what seems to be a, you know, illogical and unjustifiable spending bill.

Chris Wallace knowing full well that Cheney’s remarks are inflammatory as hell comes in and gives her some cover by saying that “the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mike Mullen got up this week and said he thought the biggest threat to our national security was debt.

Juan Williams points out rightfully that of course Mullen would say that since his primary concern is paying for the defense budget with our never-ending wars and that it would be irresponsible to stop spending when we’re trying to get the economy to recover.

The Cheney’s of the world are more than happy to collapse our economy from reckless invasions of countries that were not a threat to us and tax cuts for the rich, but spending on stimulus or help for the unemployed, that’s a national security issue.
