Cousin Dick Cheney: Obama Honeymoon Is Over!

What happened to the 100-day honeymoon traditionally allotted to all new U.S. Presidents? It seems that the approximate 45+ days remaining in the Obama honeymoon has been nixed. Yes, the love fest between the American people and President Barack Obama has come to a screeching halt.

The media shills, who just a few months ago were loudly exclaiming 'hosanna to Obama', are now beginning to yell 'crucify' him, as many are openly criticizing the 44th President's every move. It is unfathomable that media pundits and talking heads, such as David Gergen, Chris Matthews and David S. Broder are currently leading the chorus to declare the Obama presidency annulled.

Online news source, The Examiner, noted that in a recent Washington Post op-ed:
"[David S.] Broder points out that the main challenge is now coming from the mainstream media as well as the conservative wing. He thinks that some thoughtful congressional Democrats worry that Obama has bitten off more than he can chew. All of this may signal that the honeymoon is over long before the first 100 days have past."

Other notables, such as Townhall's Mark Hillman, in this recent piece all but called President Obama a 'cry-baby'...admonishing him to quit blaming Bush and 'suck-it-up':
"Bush didn't spend the next few months claiming that he "inherited" a national security mess, nor did he complain about the economy which faltered in two of the final three quarters under President Clinton before contracting again in Bush's first year.

Likewise, President Reagan didn't whine about the soaring unemployment and burgeoning inflation that awaited him after President Carter's tenure.

These men understood that they campaigned for the opportunity to serve as President and to lead by making difficult, sometimes unpopular decisions.

That's why President Obama's transformation from a candidate of hope and change to a president of gloom, blame and opportunism is so disappointing - even for those who didn't buy what he was selling as a candidate. His ability to truly inspire 53% of the voters seemed, at least, refreshing.

Now, the Obama team takes every opportunity to complain that they "inherited" a deficit, an "economic crisis," and "a big mess."

No hope, just bellyaching".

And what about the massive tea-party-protests being played out across the nation? Voters appear to be experiencing buyers remorse and taking to the streets to complain about the stimulus package and the increased taxes that the new President and Congress have proposed. Whoever heard of protesting a president half-way through his first 100-days?

But the coup de grĂ¢ce, which truly signaled that Obama is out of good graces and the divorce is all but a done-deal... was the appearance on a recent Sunday morning news show of the 'father of the bride', former Vice President Dick Cheney, where he unequivocally accused President Obama of "making the nation less safe".

What? Did Dick Cheney really say that Obama cannot protect his new wife: the United States of America? Unheard of!

Now... these actions by the media are indeed unprecedented. But for Obama's own cousin, Vice President Dick Cheney, to come out during the 100-day honeymoon period to tell the nation and the world that Obama is making the country less safe... that is the remarkable! The marriage is officially on the rocks...

Cheney is merely a distant cousin FYI. So what he says does not matter.

Miss Vivian. Are you a Republican or a Democrat? We have a bet going on in my group. Several of us have been following your blog for some time and it is hard to tell from you writing because you hit both parties right between the eyes. Please fess up.

This was a good article BTW.

As a Balck woman who was highly critized during the campaign when I repeatedly told folks that Obama was not qualified, I was vilified by many of my brothers and sisters. After the election I told several people "You got what you asked for, I hope you're happy." There is no reason to say "I told you so" because that has now become painfully obvious. The man has never run a business, a city, or a state so how was it that people thought he was qualified to run a nation?
