Having Cheney call you an extremist is kind of like having Oprah fucking Winfrey call you fat.

Cheney isn't an extremist, he's just an idiot.

Is smearing poop on your hands and licking your fingers an "extreme" position? No, it's just stupid.

Cheney is not an idiot. His company received over $30 BILLION in contracts in Iraq. The American people were the idiots for letting him do it.

Cheney is many, many things but an idiot he definitely is not. He is an extremely capable, competent and wise man. Who just happens to lack all empathy towards other living creatures.

You can call Bush an idiot but Cheney was the evil genius mastermind behind it all.

He shouldn't even needed to have said that. The media, if they were true journalists, should have stated that long ago.

absolutely. but, given that the media is out to spin its own bullshit, he has to state the blindingly obvious

Paul for one. If he doesn't get the nomination then I'll do what I've done every election since I've been of voting age. Startpage the candidates until I find the closest one who will honor their oath of office.

“Excuse me, extremist point of view?” Trump said. “I was against the war in Iraq in 2003, 2004 — I said don’t do it.”

You didn't listen. You could have stopped this.

“Wait a minute — Cheney is the one that started the war in Iraq,” he continued. “You talk about an extremist? Cheney started the war in Iraq which should have never been started, because as I said then, and I say now, you will destabilize the Middle East. Somebody calls me an extremist? I am not an extremist. I’m the opposite. I’m somebody that understands what is going on. When you look at what happened with Iraq, and the war in Iraq which should have never been started and then I’m called an extremist? I don’t think so, Bill.”

Jesus, Trump might be insane but sometimes he speaks utter logic.

BRINKLEY: One other question — it keeps coming up. Why didn’t we go to Baghdad and clean it all up while we were there?

Sec. CHENEY: Well, just as it’s important, I think, for a president to know when to commit U.S. forces to combat, it’s also important to know when not to commit U.S. forces to combat. I think for us to get American military personnel involved in a civil war inside Iraq would literally be a quagmire.

Once we got to Baghdad, what would we do? Who would we put in power? What kind of government would we have? Would it be a Sunni government, a Shi’a government, a Kurdish government? Would it be secular, along the lines of the Ba’ath Party?

Would it be fundamentalist Islamic? I do not think the United States wants to have U.S. military forces accept casualties and accept the responsibility of trying to govern Iraq. I think it makes no sense at all.

--U.S. Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney on ABC's This Week with David Brinkley, April 7, 1991

This was talking about the first Iraq war with Bush Sr. Then after that Cheney became Vice President and they invaded Iraq and created the quagmire he said would be created.
