Neocons rejoice in Romney!

Mitt Romney would like to have a war criminal as his VP

Former Massachusetts Governor and singer of praise for war criminals, Mitt Romney (Credit: Wikimedia Commons)

Mitt Romney – the undisputed king of flip flops who is regarded with a disturbingly delusional amount of legitimacy in the mainstream media – has announced that he would like a Vice President like infamous war criminal Dick Cheney, a man who strangely also recently claimed that Israel is planning a preemptive strike against Iran.

Personally, I didn’t think it was possible for Romney to delegitimize himself any further than he has already by changing his opinion on just about every single major issue he pretends to care about. Well it appears that I was completely wrong.

In what NBC called “a free-wheeling town hall that felt more like a rally” in Arizona, Romney revealed either a total lack of factual knowledge or a complete disregard for the sanctity of human life by praising the former Vice President Cheney as “a person of wisdom and judgment.”

Cheney might have “judgment” if you consider the approval of torture, mass murder and illegal war any kind of sound judgment.

The notion of Cheney having anything remotely resembling “wisdom” is, at best, laughable.

How can Romney make such overtures about the former Vice President knowing that he laughs when confronted on the fact that people are seeking to charge him as a war criminal?

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that Romney would praise Cheney’s judgment, seeing as Romney can’t manage to judge anything, opting instead to go with whatever he thinks will make him popular at the time.

Currently, it is the whole hijacked “Tea Party” movement that Romney has attached himself to like a leech, attempting to suck as many votes from the ignorant and easily deceived as possible.

It is not even as though Cheney has endorsed Romney in 2012 and so we could explain it away by saying that Romney is simply returning the favor. In fact, Cheney has yet to endorse anyone in 2012 but I guess there are more pressing matters for a war criminal without a pulse.

For those who are not aware of some of the horrors Dick Cheney has supported, you might be interested in reading this International Criminal Court complaint filed against Cheney along with former President George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, George Tenet, Condoleezza Rice and Alberto Gonzalez by a law professor at University of Illinois College of Law in Champaign found here.

Or you might remember that Cheney helped forge the concept of “enemy combatant” in the so-called “War on Terror” which Cheney and the Bush regime to flout the Geneva Conventions in order to torture and indefinitely detain countless individuals, many of which are innocent of any wrongdoing.

A related aspect of Cheney’s war crimes is the establishment of Guantanamo Bay, where unspeakable horrors occur to this day, all in our name and the fallacious defense of freedom.

I don’t know about you, but my freedom doesn’t require torturing Muslims to death or rounding up children and senile old men to be tortured and detained indefinitely.

Or how about the outing of former CIA agent Valerie Plame to Cheney’s former chief of staff Scooter Libby, who in turn leaked her identity to a New York Times reporter?

Chickenhawk? Definitely. Cowardly?...debatable....War Criminal? No.

I would say that had he truly fought in Nam on the front lines, his eagerness to put our young people in harm's way would most likely be more judicious.

This is not surprising since Romney is a progressive liberal and that's what a NeoCon is.
Although, flip-flopper Mitt could merely be pandering to the hawks on the right to win their approval.
They'll fall for it too, their bloodlust for killing as many Muslims as possible, whether they Arabs, Central Asian or Persian, overrides all other issues.

Obama is a little darker than Cheney therefore he can't be a war criminal, plus he has a D before his name.

If true, it certainly makes him more attractive. I don't know where he'll find as solid a conservative with the ability to navigate the corridors of Washington DC power as Dick Cheney though. If Don Rumsfeld weren't so old and if he hadn't already been effectively smeared by his critics, he'd be a good VP.

I haven't picked a candidate for 2012 yet. I've ruled out Obama completely and I've all but ruled out Ron Paul because of his make believe foreign policy ideas.

Pure ignorance.

Are you actually saying a President or VP should only be able to send our Armed Forces to war if he himself has been in the military?

Pure ignorance? Really? While I would agree military service is not necessary to be POTUS and send men into battle, those that have truly experienced the horrors of war do not make that decision so cavalierly.
