Jon Stewart called out Dick Cheney Monday night for his “disingenuous blame game” as he continues to disparage Obama for bringing an end to a war Cheney and his ilk started. “America’s tragedy herpe”, as Stewart calls him, Cheney seems to pop up just to push blame around.
Cheney, with his “sith apprentice” Liz at his side, has been making the rounds lately to attack President Obama’s handling of Iraq. Blaming Obama for pulling troops before the job was finished, Cheney seems to forget it was he who was discussing plans to get the troops out of Iraq way back in 2009. Stewart mocked Cheney’s flip-flopping, blasting him on his hypocrisy:
“A significant success unless some other guy…comes in and abides by the agreement that Bush and I negotiated. If someone did that it would be tantamount to America rolling over, showing its belly, and then urinating on itself.”
But it seems Cheney might finally be shoveling a little too much crap, as even Fox News is calling him on his lies. Stewart can only giggle as he watches Fox’s Megyn Kelly tell Cheney on her program last week that “time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong in Iraq.” And of course Stewart manages one last jab: “I guess now Dick Cheney knows what it feels like when someone you thought was a friend shoots you in the face.”
