I watched Dick Cheney's speech today, and it was superb. It's the
best speech I've ever heard Cheney deliver. In fact, it was
shockingly good, totally unexpected from someone who has been such a
public relations disaster over the past 8 years.
Cheney presented the facts and the issues, and he really drew a line
in the sand. At last, we have a real debate in which people are
talking about actual facts, and about which interrogation methods work
best. At last, there is a debate worth having -- between Cheney and
Obama. This is how our government is supposed to work -- and hardly
I'm not saying that Cheney is right and Obama is wrong. I'm simply saying that today Cheney made a very persuasive case for his positions regarding interrogation methods and the closing of Guantanamo.
