I am not sure who is right but we have to get this right!

On all of the morning, afternoon and evening talk shows, pundits have been comparing President Obama and former Vice President Cheney's speeches on the methods of torture , what is toture, and the question of national security. Of course former Vice President Cheney's defense is that the Bush administration's methods were effective and kept the country safe after 9/11. President Obama's opinion is that tourture did happen and did not work,Gitmo should closed and perhpas these prisoners in Gitmo who are terrorists should be put in maximun security prisons in and around the United States.

I have a mixed opinions about this entire subject for a number of reasons I will not bore you with. However this is what I know for sure. WHOMEVER IS IN CHARGE HAS GOT TO GET THIS RIGHT. It is fine to make speeches, it is fine to have conversations but at some point each side has to sit with the other and come up with a solution that is effective. I am not a foreign policy expert by any means but I do know how important it is to keep not only America but the world safe. So enough with the speeches, talking heads and editorials let's get to work becuse if we do not get this right the alternative is dangerous and unacceptable.

Is Mr. Cheney being Patriotic?

I know that is a shock to those who know me know that I am not a big fan of former Vice President Dick Cheney. I think as Vice-President Joe Biden said in a debate, Mr Cheney is the most dangerous Vice President in history. During the eight years he was Vice President Mr. Cheney was rarely seen, he rarely gave interviews and sometimes would not be seen for months at a time. However now Mr. Cheney seems to have found his voice since being out of office and is sounding the alarm that President Obama has made the United Staes less safe by some of his recent policies. I am not going to talk about Mr. Obama's polices and if Mr. Cheney is right. However, I do believe what Mr Cheney is doing is dangerous and it as if he wants the United States to be attacked just to prove him self right.

The Republican party always wants to potray itself as being a party who is so patriotic. But is Mr. Cheney being patriotic talking against the policies of the current adminstration? I think not. He would be well served to keep quiet and the Obama administration to do what they think is best as the Clinton administration did the Bush administration. Mr. Cheney must understand that the atmosphere of fear has been replaced with hope and he would serve this country best by going back to his undisclosed bunker and being the mean old grumpy man he has always been. That would be patriotic.
