The Good President [continued] -- Cheney Vindicated

Uberlefty Glenn Greenwald, to his great dismay, finds that the new "orthodoxy" in Obama's America is that Bush-era defense and counter-terrorism policies, defended by VP Cheney but bitterly denounced by Democrats during the campaign, have been shown to be wise and prudent. Why? Because they have been largely adopted and even extended by the Obama administration.

What is most surprising is not that Bush's policies turned out to have been correct -- a lot of us have known that all along -- but that an article titled "The Vindication of Dick Cheney" could appear in a hard-left publication like Salon. 

Read his complaint here.
