Former Vice President Dick Cheney has been very outspoken since the beginning of the Obama administration, defending against the Obama administration’s attacks on the Bush administration’s conduct of the War against Islamic terrorists.

More power to him. While the phony search has gone on since January 20th, 2009 by the media for a new and approved-by-the-media Republican Leader, ( one preferably like Colin Powell) Vice President Cheney has bravely stood against the media and the lefts’ political onslaughts, offering wise commentary and criticism of the Obama administration.

Throughout the eight years of the Bush administration, Dick Cheney, was dauntless in his stand against the left’s criticisms of all things Bush. He was treated by the media and the left as if he were the dark and evil Lord Sauron when in reality, all along, Dick Cheney was the wise and cool head.

In short, Dick Cheney is Gandalf the Grey. Dick Cheney has always demonstrated wisdom and insight, from his tenure as Secretary of Defense under the first Bush administration to his role as Vice President in the Bush administration.

Some may have expected him to quietly retire to fishing in Wyoming when the Obama regime came in. I, for one, am glad he didn’t take the easier road. Vice President Cheney understands the stakes our nation faces.

We haven’t heard from him in a while, as he has been recovering from heart surgery. I look forward to his return and pray for his health.
