WAR OF WORDS

White House Slaps Cheney

Now that there’s a new sheriff in town, Dick Cheney should watch his mouth. The former VP has been very public with his opinions that President Obama’s reversal of Bush’s war policies is making America less safe—and Obama’s top adviser, David Axelrod, is firing back. “[President Bush] has behaved like a statesman. And as I’ve said before, here and elsewhere, I just don’t think the memo got passed down to the vice president,” Axelrod said today on CNN.
