Cheney knocks Biden for taking credit for Iraq

“If they are going to take credit for [Iraq], fair enough, for what they’ve done while they are there. But it ought to go with a healthy dose of ‘thank you George Bush’ up front,” he said.

Biden responded by claiming the Obama administration has helped secure a political solution in Iraq that was uncertain when Bush left office.

“What we did and we did responsibly from the day we took office was put that in motion,” Biden told CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “I don’t care who gets credit. My generic point is we have handled this very well thus far.”

Cheney slammed Biden once again for arguing that another 9/11-type attack was unlikely.

“If the mindset is ‘it’s not likely,’ then it’s difficult to mobilize the resources and get people to give it the kind of priority it deserves,” Cheney said.
