Two very recent quotes from the former president and vice-president…
"Terrorists may lack much, but they have never lacked for grievances against the United States… the terrorists see just what they were hoping for — our unity gone, our resolve shaken, our leaders distracted. In short, they see weakness and opportunity." – Dick Cheney
"And there I was, former president of the United States, with a plastic bag on my hand… Life is returning back to normal." – George W. Bush
I wonder which one of those two had more of an influence on the timbre of political rhetoric for the past eight years.
