Former Vice President Dick Cheney was on This Week today and he had a little message for Vice President Biden:
"If [the administration is] going to take credit for [Iraq's success], fair enough ... but it ought to come with a healthy dose of 'Thank you, George Bush' up front and a recognition that some of their early recommendations with respect to prosecuting that war were just dead wrong," Cheney told ABC News' Jonathan Karl.
"Obama and Biden campaigned from one end of the country to the other for two years criticizing our Iraq policy," Cheney said. "If they had had their way, if we'd followed the policies they'd pursued from the outset or advocated from the outset, Saddam Hussein would still be in power in Baghdad today."
You just knew Cheney wasn’t going to let Obama and Biden take credit for Iraq that easily. The current administration has not missed a single opportunity to blame the Bush administration for everything under the sun, so why should they thank the Bush Administration when credit is obviously due.
