"Why Cheney attacks

"Former Vice President Cheney will appear on ABC's 'This Week' on Sunday, and it’s a safe bet what he will say: President Barack Obama projects weakness to terrorists and puts American lives at risk.... 

"On Sunday, Vice President Joe Biden will be countering Cheney on NBC’s 'Meet the Press' and CBS’s 'Face the Nation....'

[Me: Good luck w/ that - I can hear him now: 'Well, Cheney is clean, and articulate... and he's white, too.'] 

"But Cheney’s ability to influence policy... may be dulled by his insensitivity to timing and penchant for rhetorical bombast, with such quotes as describing Obama as “a guy without much experience, who campaigned against much of what we put in place ... and who now travels around the world apologizing....

“Keith Olberman: 'I think he [Cheney] may believe that only his vision can save America, and thus anything, including lying to America, is justifiable... This is, I believe, called a Messiah Complex.’....”

[Messiah Complex? Where have I heard that recently?]
