Yet another Big Republican Lie about President Obama

Thu Jan 07, 2010 at 08:46:03 AM PST

In recent days, Dick Cheney and his Republican buddies have been claiming that President Obama not only refuses to say we are at war with terrorist networks like Al Qaeda, but won't even talk about terrorism at all. Their claim, however, has no basis in reality. In fact, as this brief compilation of video clips from 27 different Presidential speeches shows, the exact opposite is true.

Keep in mind that while this video features snippets from over two dozen different speeches (including at least one from each month of Obama's presidency), it represents only a small fraction of what the President has said about terrorism and national security. In other words, Dick Cheney's claim that President Obama poses a threat to American security is every bit as accurate as his claim that Iraqi WMD posed a threat to the entire world.
