Dick Cheney is a rectal tumor.

I don't understand something. How can the President "not attend" a Presidential briefing? Wouldn't the meeting then by definition NOT be a Presidential briefing?

If the President can't be in the meeting if its in the White House, don't they just have the meeting wherever the President is?

So Mr. Bush, the Lesser, gets an A+ for attendance.
 
2012-09-11 10:12:25 AM
Like most first term Presidents, he probably meets more regularly with his re-election team.
 
2012-09-11 10:13:41 AM
and what percent of his daily economic briefings has he attended compared to his predecessor?

If Dick Cheney wasn't a disk he would understand why his efforts at taking credit for something he and Bush totally failed at offends people so much.

This isn't satire?

Too early in the morning for this shiat.

Thank you Dick Cheney for reminding America that the Bush administration failed miserably for eight long years to find the man who murdered three thousand Americans and that the Obama administration succeeded.
 
2012-09-11 10:20:22 AM
There's a reason nobody gives a good goddamn about attendance past school age.

Feel free to go tell your boss or college professor that you blew the major project, but damnit you were there every day!

We gave him a heart transplant why exactly?

He HAD to show up for the meetings because he needed someone to read the briefing reports to him. Obama seems to have managed to multitask and read the reports while taking care of presidential business in the little president's room.

Something can be called Presidential because the President ordered it done. I passed the President's physical fitness test back in elementary school but Jimmy Carter was not there to personally certify it.

Results matter.

Obama managed to accomplish in 2 years what Bush and Cheney failed to accomplish in 7.

Bush attended all of his and the attack still happened. Obama still gets all the intel even if he doesn't attend each meeting. Evidence that Obama knows how to identify and use the relevant information. And evidence that Bush was a dunce with a good attendance record.

And of course there's the lie that Obama is claiming credit for it all.

One might be motivated to ask Mr. Cheney, then, what exactly it is about Obama's staff and the military under his leadership that made the operation possible, when his own had fallen so inexcusably short. One might be tempted to believe the Bush Administration wasn't really interested in taking out bin Laden (Tora Bora, Bush's own words). One might be tempted to conclude that Mr. Cheney is pissed off that someone did a better job than he and his 'boss' and took a Neocon boogeyman off the board.

So Pres. Obama reads the daily briefings, rather than attend all the meetings......and this is a bad thing?

Dick Cheney is an insult to douchebags everywhere. Summer's Eve should sue him for defamation of character.

By contrast, Obama's predecessor, George W. Bush, almost never missed his daily intelligence meeting.

Yeah, but the real trick was getting him to put down his Tamagotchi.

I have awesome tools for telecommunication and video conferencing at this little bank I work at. They are so good I have only been to the office twice this year and nobody is expecting me to come in anytime soon. I can only imagine the toys the POTUS has at his disposal.
 
2012-09-11 11:32:05 AM
If Cheney is going to bash Obama for not attending daily briefings, then he sure as fark shouldn't claim that all those days off at the ranch for Bush were working vacations.

Dick Cheney is a God damned disgrace. He is the worst kind of filth. I've no doubt that were he born in Germany in the early 1900s. he would have turned down the offer to be a top adviser to Der Fuhrer and would have asked to be the guy who turned on the showers or fired up the ovens.

Yeah, I farking went there and I won't apologize for it.

And yet unlike Bush, he was able to keep us safe throughout that first term. Must be a matter of competence then.

2012-09-11 12:02:14 PM
If Dick would go back and watch the speech Obama gave that night, repeatedly he said the credit belonged to the special ops guys and the intel people backing them up. He didn't take credit for anything.

I'll say it again:

That Dick Cheney is not rotting in agonizing pain in a dank prison cell somewhere is all the proof I need that there is no god. Or justice, for that matter.

He attends 4 of 10, reads the other 6. He's being briefed, just not always in person.

this is why Dick Cheney doesn't have cancer - there are no tumors out there with any shred of self-worth that would take the time to grow on his body.

We don't. Dick Cheney is wealthy and protected, and can call in more favors than we plebes could ever hope to overcome. Further, Dick Cheney could pull off something on live TV akin to the Aurora theater shooting and the USA STILL wouldn't turn him over to the Hague.

The best we can hope for is that when his transplanted heart gives out, the pain is excruciating and that there is genuine terror in his eyes.
 
2012-09-11 12:23:52 PM
When Cheney got his heart transplant, special medicine had to be given directly to the heart so that it would not reject Cheney.

They look at his body's tissue and are impressed by the corruption. They know there's nothing they can add, so they refocus their efforts on children.

Lemme get this straight: you're upset that's he trying to take sole credit for something (which he's not) because of the means by which he got intel to order the raid on OBL?

Dick Cheney: I will rape your soul with impotent rage.

At first I was all like, "this would make a great Fark thread!"

And then I was like, "oh...wait."

"During his first 1,225 days in office, Obama attended his PDB just 536 times - or 43.8 percent of the time. During 2011 and the first half of 2012, his attendance became even less frequent - falling to just over 38 percent. By contrast, Obama's predecessor, George W. Bush, almost never missed his daily intelligence meeting."

I'm sure the source for this just oozes credibility.

In order for that to happen, Cheney will have to acquire a soul from Goodwill Industries.

Thank Nancy and Harry for that.

/of course, it could be that THEY are complicit in this too, and don't want to find themselves in adjoining cells.
