| 1 Comment

David Axelrod tells CNN's John King on "State of the Union" Sunday that former Vice President Cheney was not behaving as a statesman in his criticisms of the Obama administration national security policies.

"[President Bush] has behaved like a statesman," Axelrod told King "regarding the former president's decision not to criticize the new administration. "And as I've said before, here and elsewhere, I just don't think the memo got passed down to the vice president."

As I glance at my calendar, I see that Cheney is irrelevant, at this stage. He exercises his right to speak, but who, of any consequence, is listening? He seems to be expounding more now, than he did in 8 years, in office!
