Fox News’ Liz Cheney came out with all guns firing on Sunday, berating President Obama because he ‘abandoned’ Czechoslovakia and added insult to injury by apologizing to all enemies of America. Cheney’s moment of ignorance came during a panel on ABC’s This Week, where the topic of discussion included Mitt Romney’s claim that Obama was sympathizing with the criminals who attacked and murdered Ambassador Chris Stevens and other Americans.
Cheney agrees with Romney, stating, “I think he [Romney] did get it right. We’ve now had three and a half years of Obama policy and it looks an awful lot like – whetehr you’re talking about the Mexico City speech in 2009, the Cairo Speech in 2009, the extent to whcih he’s been apologizing for America, he’s abdondoned some of our key allies like Israel, Poland, Czechoslovakia. He’s attempted to appease our enemies, the Iranians, for example, the Soviet Russians. … The president himself has got a terrible record on national security, and it’s clearly something that Gov. Romney ought rightly to be pushing.”
Czechoslovakians and Soviets were more a concern during the Reagan years, so maybe Ms. Cheney was reflecting on a time when her party and president faired better in the public spotlight.
Not one to go quietly, Cheney continued, “But there’s no question but that we’re weaker than we were when Barack Obama took office. And if he has four more years, we may well be unrecobnizable.”
According to reality, at no point has Obama come out and apologized for the United States and given mercy to those who attacked the US embassy in Libya. He’s actually ordered military drones and strikes against whoever is responsible.
Also, the USSR hasn’t existed for quite some time. The same can be said for Czechoslovakia, which has not existed since the time when MC Hammer pants were an acceptable article of daily clothing.
