Bill Clinton to Dick Cheney: "Shut up and sit yo azz down."
With the combination of his folksy roots in Arkansas and his Rhodes Scholar education in Oxford, Bill Clinton can "chop up" the complicated into bubba-speak.
When Bill speaks, for better or worse (usually always better), people listen.
As we know, Dick Cheney -- the co-architect of the Iraq and Afghanistan fiasco -- has been running his yap on his perceived Obama foreign affairs failures.
Mr. Clinton, maintaining a diplomatic tone, recently retorted:
Bill Clinton doesn't approve of the persistent criticism Dick Cheney has lobbed against the Obama's administration's policies when it comes to Iraq.
"Mr. Cheney has been incredibly adroit for the last six years or so attacking the administration for not doing an adequate job of cleaning up the mess that he made," Clinton told NBC News "Meet The Press" host David Gregory. "And I think it's unseemly. And I give President Bush, by the way, a lot of credit for trying to stay out of this debate and letting other people work through it."
Clinton argued that if the U.S. had not gone to war with Iraq during the Bush administration, the chaotic sectarian violence that has plagued Iraq in recent weeks would not be happening.
"Well, it might be happening in Syria, but what happened in Syria wouldn't have happened in Iraq. Iraq would not have been, in effect, drastically altered, as it has been," said the former president. source
In other words, to the less encumbered, Clinton sharply rebukes Cheney with:
Hoe, sit your tired, Darth Vader, revisionist, hateful, lying ass down. We -- Obama and the nation -- are still trying to clean up the shit you, Bush, neo-cons and your Halliburton (war profiteering) buddies left behind. In a perfect world: we would be reading you Miranda (you have the right to remain silent) instead of providing you a media to talk crazy.
