White House Fires Back on Afghanistan – Misses

It seems that Bobby Gibbs has become very hard to ignore.    Former Vice President Dick Cheney, father of Liz, leveled from very specific charges at the Obama administration.    Included was the charge the the Obama much proclaimed new plan announced in March was basically developed by the Bush administration.   In response,  Gibby comes out guns blazing, but failed to address Cheney specific charge, from Jennifer Rubin, Commentary [1]:

Robert Gibbs responded predictably to former Vice President Dick Cheney’s criticism that the Obama administration dithers on Afghanistan, answering with an attack on the Bush administration. (I know you’re shocked.) He offered no explanation about why the Obama administration is taking so long to reach a decision or why the military, our allies, and members of the president’s own party are wringing their hands about the president’s public angst. And what of the charge that the Obama team in effect lied when it claimed that it had to start its war-planning from scratch? Well, there was no answer [3]:

Harry Truman said, if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.   The Obama adminstration can’t take the heat.
