An Embarrassing Lack of Class

It's one thing when I see juvenile comments coming out of someone like Civet. But it's another when I see it coming from the person representing the president. Regardless of political differences, Cheney was vice president and his comments could have been answered without resorting to ridiculous sarcasm that cheapens the presidency.

An Embarrassing Lack of Class

At least Bush has enough class to just go away. Gibs responded to Cheney in a totaly appropriate manner. I don't care what office he used to hold, war criminals get no respect. Wish some Euro country would just put out a warant and we could be done with him.

You just don't get it, do you? Disagreeing with a former vice president is one thing. But acting like a snot-nosed juvenile only reflects badly on Obama. Believe it or not, I'm trying to look out for the office here. People expect their president to rise above the petty and take the high road. Remember when he campaigned on a promise to end the politics of division?

Gibbs was inappropriate. Regardless of what you think of Cheney, he does have some valuable first hand knowledge and raised some important issues about security.

I hope Cheney doesn't get to say "I told you so" someday.

Think You do have a point - sorta. You mean Bush had enough class to go away as opposed to Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton who somehow believe they are still relevant?

What court convicted VP Cheney?
When was he charged?
Where was this "trial" held?
How was the evidence presented?

Oh so he never was accused, tried and convicted of war crimes then huh?

Now here's an example of someone who actually respects the presidency and handles himself with some class. While Obama and his people cheapen the office with obnoxious, juvenile sarcasm and ridicule, George Bush demonstrates how a president should carry himself in the public arena.

This is hillarious. The most reviled politician in America being defended by saying,.....

Ya sure. Mushroom clouds and aluminum tubes, 9/11 and orange alerts. Might as well ask Jeffery Dahmer how to run a youth group.

I bet you're hoping the opposite just as Cheney is.

What are you talking about? Too much TV, turn it off, X files is fiction.

I did.

Bush's dad had that talk with him he should have had a long time ago. After you leave office or lose a presidential run you're supposed to shut up. Not go on national TV yapping your big fat mouth off. Cheney is one of the lowest pols I've seen come down the pike. In a recent national pol of political figures Bush polled above Rush (who was at the bottom) I only wish Cheney was on there so we could tell how low it is possible to go.

Bonus slide show of Bush's welcome at the speach. Our closest neighbor lovez the ex prez.

You're frothing again, Civet. This thread is about carrying oneself with class and maturity, remember?
