I guess the other thing that offends the hell out of me, frankly, Chris, is we had a track record now of eight years of defending the nation against any further mass casualty attacks from Al Qaida.
The approach of the Obama administration should be to come to those people who were involved in that policy and say, "How did you do it? What were the keys to keeping this country safe over that period of time?"
You know which other two-term administrations had "eight year track records defending the nation against any further mass casualty attacks from Al Qaida?"
All of them.
Every two-term administration ever can boast the same thing.
And they achieved it without selling out our values and breaking international law. Sorry, Dick, but you're a liar, a coward and a war criminal.
