White House: Cheney Almost As Popular As Limbaugh

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says former Vice President Dick Cheney is the second most popular member of the "Republican cabal," behind only talk-show host Rush Limbaugh.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs on Monday brushed off Cheney's criticism of President Barack Obama's new administration. Cheney said Sunday on CNN that Obama's decisions are threatening the nation's safety.

Obama reversed many of his predecessor's executive orders, including how the country treats suspected terrorists.

Gibbs says Obama is keeping the nation safe and dealing with problems George W. Bush's administration did not.

Gibbs says his sarcasm shouldn't mask serious policy differences between Obama and the Bush-Cheney team.

    And we all know how popular Limbaugh is. . .NOT! These guys are the true pigs of the Republican party. At least they don't feel comfortable attacking people of color. Just women and Dems. Gag me.

    What happened to statesmanship? Why is the White House engaging in this childlike banter? Oh, I forgot, the White House is full of childish, hateful, petty morons who wouldn't know a statesman if the statesman kicked him straight in the face.

    Who cares what Cheny says. He needs to stay in Jackson Hole and shoot more of his republican buddies in the face when they're hunting. Maybe he and Palin can go moose hunting soon.

    Cheney needs to shut his pie hole and sit down.
