Writing from an alternate reality in the Wall Street Journal, liar, war criminal, and all around not-nice-person Dick Cheney had this to say about President Barack Obama's strategy in Iraq, apparently without a hint of irony or self-awareness:

Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.
Ah, yes.  The Bush Administration's rank incompetence and the consequences thereof are rare indeed, but that's not what Cheney was talking about.

This fact was not lost on White House press secretary Jay Carney, who, at his last press briefing before stepping down, answered a question from ABC's resident rightwing troll, Jonathan Karl.

Video is here, credit Tommy Christopher.  (Not sure how to embed DailyMotion videos, but I will if someone tells me how.)

KARL:  I wonder if you've had the chance to see this op-ed piece that former vice president Dick Cheney has written in the Wall Street Journal that has a rather critical tone to it toward the White House.  He says, "rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many," talking about the situation in Iraq and in the Middle East generally.

CARNEY:  Which president was he talking about?

[laughter]

That'll leave a mark.

How nice of Carney to shove that quote back in Dick's face during his last day as press secretary.  Oh, and rightwing troll and Benghazi fraudster Jonathan Karl as well.  They both got what they deserved.

Now if Cheney would just crawl back into his undisclosed location and shut up, we'd all be better off.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
