Gore's severe memory lapse regarding Iraq

Gore said during a CNN interview:
“Talk about somebody that shouldn't be talking about making the country less safe, invading a country that did not attack us and posed no serious threat to us at all,” Gore said of Cheney.
Iraq was no serious threat to us at all? What about Bill Clinton's speech regarding bombing Iraq in December of 1998? (emphasis mine):
Earlier today, I ordered America's armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces. Their mission is to attack Iraq's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors.

Their purpose is to protect the national interest of the United States, and indeed the interests of people throughout the Middle East and around the world.

Saddam Hussein must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with nuclear arms, poison gas or biological weapons.

I want to explain why I have decided, with the unanimous recommendation of my national security team, to use force in Iraq; why we have acted now; and what we aim to accomplish.

The international community had little doubt then, and I have no doubt today, that left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will use these terrible weapons again.

Saddam's deception has defeated their effectiveness. Instead of the inspectors disarming Saddam, Saddam has disarmed the inspectors.

This situation presents a clear and present danger to the stability of the Persian Gulf and the safety of people everywhere.

And so we had to act and act now.

Let me explain why.

First, without a strong inspection system, Iraq would be free to retain and begin to rebuild its chemical, biological and nuclear weapons programs in months, not years.

Second, if Saddam can crippled the weapons inspection system and get away with it, he would conclude that the international community -- led by the United States -- has simply lost its will. He will surmise that he has free rein to rebuild his arsenal of destruction, and someday -- make no mistake -- he will use it again as he has in the past.

If we had delayed for even a matter of days from Chairman Butler's report, we would have given Saddam more time to disperse his forces and protect his weapons.

The hard fact is that so long as Saddam remains in power, he threatens the well-being of his people, the peace of his region, the security of the world.

And mark my words, he will develop weapons of mass destruction. He will deploy them, and he will use them.

Dowd covers for Obama by attacking Cheney

Maureen Dowd's latest column attacks Cheney because Cheney dares to have the audacity to defend his actions while Vice-President. (hat tip Hot Air)

After a distracting and pointless comparison to Carter, Gore vs. a sitting president, we finally get to the crux of her unhinged Cheney harangue:
Well, then you’d have to say that, in effect, we’re prepared to sacrifice American lives rather than run an intelligent interrogation program that would provide us the information we need to protect America,” Doomsday Dick said.

Cheney has replaced Sarah Palin as Rogue Diva.
At first glance it appears that in Dowd's mind, Cheney is a drama queen because he is speaking his mind and not giving Obama the benefit of the doubt to the commander-in-chief. Just like Republicans said Gore and Carter shouldn't have done. Cheney's comments are from personal knowledge from being directly involved with the policy at hand along with being attacked now over that policy. Carter and Gore had no involvement or decision in the policies they criticized.

What was the point in bring it up? Dowd's real purpose is to begin the spin to counter the Bush-Cheney success:
No matter if or when terrorists attack here — and they’re on their own timetable, not a partisan red/blue state timetable — Cheney will be deemed the primary one who made America more vulnerable."
The fact is that in the 88 months after 9/11/2001 during Bush-Cheney, the US wasn't attacked. That didn't just somehow happen. Cheney was a part of that success and has said that the interrogation techniques played a role.

Dowd's push back is that Cheney, who is a private citizen, has a greater influence on the security of the US than the current President.
