While watching the news on television, and reading the daily newspapers and magazines, I was a tat confused. Did we not have an election where Barack Obama became president? Were we back in the quagmire of the Bush administration?

The confusion arose because Dick Cheney is again feeding fear mongering to the masses. Although he is no longer Vice President, he seems to be ignoring that fact. His mission in life now is to undermine and undercut anything that the present administration is doing.

Eight years of the Republican rule which brought disaster to the American people was not enough for him, he wants to continue with the failed policies of the past.

Now he has taken on former Secretary of State Colin Powell, claiming that Mr. Powell is no longer a Republican. King Cheney is now donning the cloak of royalty and declaring who is and is not a member of his party. This is welcome news to radio commentator Rush Limbaugh, who is trying his hardest to be known as “THE” leader.

They both decided that since Mr. Powell endorsed President Obama in the last election, he has become a Democrat.

We would welcome him with open arms, but he has declared the two “champions of the Republican right” are very wrong. He stated “Rush will not get his wish, and Mr. Cheney was misinformed”. Those are indeed kind words considering the barrage hurled at him.

While most loyal Democrats, and I consider myself one, will regale at the in-fighting among Republicans, I find that I commiserate with Mr. Powell.

He is a war hero, who has served his country admirably for many years. Cheney never served in the military, taking every deferment available to keep him out of the army during the Vietnam war. He has declared he had “other priorities”. Limbaugh was classified as 4-F, making him not healthy enough to serve, a football injury, you know. What starting assurances!

My suggestion would be that Limbaugh discontinue to inflame his audience, and that Cheney go back to that “undisclosed” location where he has been hiding.

Hasta la Vista
