Talking loud, saying nothing
If I remember correctly, former vice president Dick Cheney was your basic MIA VP. He was always in some "undisclosed location," usually at a hospital getting a tune up on his pacemaker or appearing occasionally at military bases under armed guard.
Once out of office, he's popping up on TV talk shows more often than anyone in Hollywood. Always having something derogatory to say about our current President Barack Obama, he's never at a loss for words.
The latest flap that has Mr. Cheney, as well as the entire field marshals of the GOP, up in arms is Obama shaking Hugo Chavez's hand. That fau paux coming weeks after Obama bowed in subservience to the King of Saudi Arabia and agreeing to "talk" to Iran and North Korea.
Opening up Cuba as a tourist destination has Nixon and Reagan rolling in their graves.
I forget who said "Hold your friends close, but hold your enemies closer," and maybe Obama is following that course of action. I think the Bush administration had a "Do Not Call" list of world leaders longer than Nixon's "enemies list."
These leaders we banish from the world stage 'cause we say so’ has gone on too for long and accomplished nothing. They are in their respective positions for reasons that are none of our business.
