There are many ways to address the mindless drivel spewed by Walter Mondale in today’s Star & Sickle, but I can’t let the last paragraph go without comment.
At the end of his hit piece on Dick Cheney, Walter treats us to this self-congratulatory laugh riot:
Since the Carter administration left office, we have been criticized for many things. Yet I remain enormously proud of what we did in those four years, especially that we told the truth, obeyed the law and kept the peace.
Poor Walter, his caboose has, once and for all, gone around the bend. Can he point to nothing else of which he can be proud?
Why does he not mention the economy?
Why not be proud of all-time high interest rates and unemployment?
Why not shout from the rooftops that you were Number 2 in an administration that consulted with the President’s teenage daughter on matters of nuclear war?
Why does he avoid telling the world that he really did like Jimmy’s “Mr. Rogers” sweater.
How about the “irrational fear of Communism” or the “crisis of confidence?
For a nice summary of all Walter and Jimmy can be proud of, download this from Investor’s Business Daily. It is a fabulous read.
You have of a lot to be proud of, don’t ya Mr. Vice President, but keeping the peace sure as hell ain’t one of them.
You and the Moron in Chief you shared the West Wing with didn’t keep the peace; on the contrary, you avoided the conflict. Like the Left Wing peaceniks you are, you (and I use the word as a collective – a concept with which you are intimately familiar) expressed surprise that Brezhnev lied to you. He said he wouldn’t invade Afghanistan, but invade he did and you did nothing.
Oh, wait, you punished the US Olympic team by pulling out of the 1980 Summer Games in Moscow.
Herb Brooks and his band of college boys did more to hurt the USSR than your spineless, yellow-bellied administration.
At least the US Olympic Hockey Team had the balls to do what needed to be done. They took the Soviet's game and "shoved it back in their face."
What did you do? Shook your finger in their face and said, "Tsk, tsk. Don't take over any other countries or you'll be sorry."
How'd that work out for in Central America?
You, Mr. Vice President, are the liar. You and your former boss continue to lie about your time in the White House. You continue to rewrite history and take potshots at those who came after you in an attempt to prevent your permanent place in history is the worst Presidential administration in history.
I hope you are proud of your accomplishments, because I know no one else who is.
The rest of us are simply ashamed.
