Trying to Fix What Ain't Broke

President Obama, using his snottiest, most condescending voice said that:
"Decisions that were made over the last eight years established an ad hoc legal approach for fighting terrorism that was neither effective nor sustainable – a framework that failed to rely on our legal traditions and time-tested institutions; that failed to use our values as a compass," Obama said. "And that is why I took several steps upon taking office to better protect the American people."
Um, Barry, you can't bat any better than 1000, and, much as you loathe the reality, that's exactly what the Bush administration did following 9/11.

Speaking of Darth Cheney, he had this advice for the Boy President:
"A lot rides on our President’s understanding of the security policies that preceded him. And whatever choices he makes concerning the defense of this country, those choices should not be based on slogans and campaign rhetoric, but on a truthful telling of history."
Related: Cheney's popularity on the rise. Coincidence? I think not.
