No grasp of reality

Vice President Dick “President” Cheney was on Good Morning America this morning, spouting off about how he’s confident the US will achieve victory because

“I've worked over the years with both the Iraqi people that are involved, as well as the Americans that are involved.”
So there ya go, the US will win because Cheney was involved.

Come on now, stop the snickering or you won’t be able to read the rest of the post…

Not surprisingly, Cheney continued to shoot off his mouth (let’s hope there weren’t any attorneys around) and said;
Cheney: On the security front, I think there’s a general consensus that we’ve made major progress, that the surge has worked. That’s been a major success.
Raddatz: Two-third of Americans say it’s not worth fighting.
Cheney: So?
Raddatz: So? You don’t care what the American people think?
Cheney: No…
(Ladies and Gentlemen, your Vice President of the United States! The man who doesn’t care what the American people think...)

Cheney went on to say that people can’t be swayed by fluctuations in the public opinion polls about the war… unfortunately the interviewer didn’t have the intelligence or the balls to mention that opposition to the war is not a “fluctuation” in public opinion as a fluctuation means

What’s going on with public opinions about the war is a steady turning of the tide and according to a new poll (which, for those of you who think polls are not legitimate barometers of opinion nor fact, is how one keeps abreast with the thoughts of the American public) a scant 36% believe that “the situation in Iraq was worth going to war over” a number that was at 68% the month the war began.

What does this mean? It means that in five years the number of people who believe the Iraq war was worth starting has dropped 32%... a drop unlike one we’ve ever seen before.

Unless or course you count Bush’s incredibly low 32% approval rating...

Wait a second, Cheney was on a show that wasn't on Fox News or right wing radio?
