Because you would have seen the speech Dick Cheney gave at AEI late this morning.
What an amazing speech - clearly defending the actions of his Administration and the dangers of Obama's.
The two speeches given today by the President and former VP are as close as we could hope for a debate between the two. How the mainstream media depicts each will be interesting to watch. Yes, you have reason to be pessimistic, but the mere fact Cheney has been given the opportunity to share his vision is nothing but a positive for those that want to keep America safe.
Now I just wonder how quickly we'll see a Draft Cheney for President group on facebook...
UPDATE: Check out Obama messing up the name of his own Defense Secretary. Sorta frightening.
