A spade is a spade and a Dick is a Dick.

Obama thinks Dick is a bonehead, I couldn’t agree more.

OBAMA: I fundamentally disagree with Dick Cheney. Not surprisingly. You know, I think that Vice President Cheney has been at the head of a movement whose notion is somehow that we can’t reconcile our core values, our constitution, our belief that we don’t torture, with our national security interests. I think he’s drawing the wrong lesson from history. The facts don’t bear him out. I think he is… that attitude, that philosophy has done incredible damage to our image and position in the world. I mean, the fact of the matter is, after all these years, how many convictions actually came out of Guantanamo? How many… how many terrorists have actually been brought to justice under the philosophy that is being promoted by Vice President Cheney? It hasn’t made us safer. What it has been is a great advertisement for anti-American sentiment, which means that there is constant effective recruitment of Arab fighters and Muslim fighters against U.S. interests all around the world.

I watched this last night and it was a great interview. I’d also like to point out that at no time did Obama rely upon a teleprompter, and yet he continued to be articulate and well spoken. His message was clear, his thoughts well formed, and at no point did he struggle to find an answer to question he wasn’t expecting.

So much for that theory.

I always like it when he says, “Look.”

When what he really wants to say is “look, dumbass…”

One of these days it will slip out.
