What a difference four years can make.

The above is a picture of Dick Cheney swearing in Barack Obama as a new senator in 2005. All smiles.

Here he is during Obama's Presidential inauguration in 2009. Yeah, if looks could kill right?

It kind of makes me wonder what kind of look Cheney would give President Obama today if he was him? Somehow I don't think his opinion, or mood, has improved much.

Yet ANOTHER reason to really like President Obama.

Speaking of admiring this President here is a rather interesting examination of his presidency by the Examiner.

(H/T to the Obama Diary for the photos.)

    I have always thought Cheeney has an evil, evil look!

    President Obama is by far a better person in thought, word and deed!

    Those little girls look so cute! They have grown, haven't they? I love Sasha's big old grin! They are a close-knit, loving family.
    Dick (the dick) Cheney has two girls. One is admittedly lesbian, one isn't. I'm sure he loves them both, equally. But only one of them actually has equal rights. How does the cyborg sleep at night??
    How can this man, who was the vice president (although everyone knows he called all the shots) reconcile being a Republican, anti-gay, anti, lesbian equal rights Christian conservative, and then look into the eyes of his lesbian daughter, her female lover, and their child??? How???? And more importantly, how does that daughter, Mary, I think her name is, reconcile being the lesbian daughter of a conservative anti-gay, anti-lesbian equal rights person???
    And yet, they scorn and hate Barack Obama, who is for equal rights for gay/lesbian couples???
    Truly strange.

      Yes, Cheney did endorse anti-gay policies at one stage. Interestingly, after his daughter came out, his position drastically altered and now he is a very pro gay republican if you look into it.

      There's no defense for it really. The change of heart isn't admirable, because it came from a place of selfishness and lack of empathy. He was fine with hurting others until HE and HIS family was personally affected. Oh then, that's different! Like all republicans, they don't care one bit until THEY are personally affected and then the world must stop and change all for them.

      All it takes is a bit of empathy to have the right approach from day one. You don't need gay friends or family to know that taking away their rights is wrong. There is a slight tinge of sociopathy to the lack of this ability in many conservatives.

    I remember right after President Obama was sworn in as the 44th president of the US, Cheney telling a rightwing audience that President Obama was going to be a one-termer, now this was right after President Obama was sworn in, mind you.

    I said out loud, BS.

      Oh yeah, I remember him saying that. Thanks for the reminder. Suck on that Dick! None of your evil predictions came true.

    What I've noticed is that none of the Cheney's have been in the news or on the airwaves bashing Obama since the election. Curious, huh?

      Oh, you're wrong about that. Liz Cheney is a regular on Fox News and has been bad-mouthing the president on a regular basis.

    I don't mean to keep harping on this, but it is just incredulous to me that this man, Dick Cheney, would have such hatred and contempt for Barack Obama, when Obama believes that Cheney's own lesbian daughter should have equal rights and protections under the law. And have the right to marry!
    It's unbelievable to me how Dick Cheney and his wife sleep at night after all the horrifically stupid and slanderous things they both have said about Mr. Obama over the last 4 years.
    Did Cheney ever defend or speak up about gays and lesbians while serving as the defacto president, 2000-2009? Ever??? He had a lesbian daughter for fucks sakes, who got pregnant(?) and gave birth to her and her lover's child.
    Not that I think there is anything wrong with that. But Christian conservatives, who align themselves with the Republican Party, as do obviously the Cheneys, have something to say about that and do condemn that.
    Cheney is dog shit in my opinion. He and his wife, his daughter Liz and his lesbian daughter Mary, because she has remained silent on this issue. She won't speak up for other gays/lesbians. She totally hides behind her father, supports his positions all the while practicing what conservatives preach as being a 'chosen' lifestyle. Unbelievable.
    Sickening.

    Look as I might, I don't see "if looks could kill" in the second image. I see "paying attention to what Obama is saying". I know next to nothing about Dick Chaney, but is it faintly possible that he respects Obama as someone with more intelligence and personal charm than anyone he ever got to work with?
