The excess of one is the shortage of another.

Lately, Dick Cheney is suffering from what we call in French “verbal diarrhea.” He has been throwing a series of attacks toward the new US administration. I am not sure if the latest attacks are signs of lack of leadership in the Republican party or Dick Cheney is just bored and fighting to stay in the news. Honestly, defending torture is defending the indefensible.

The ex-vice president needs to rest, maybe write his memoirs and stay away from politics. The American people still have a fresh memory of the Bush-Cheney administration. He is not credible. Constructive criticism is good but negative criticism cannot help his legacy and his political party. As the Arabs of Egypt say, “The excess of one is the shortage of another.”
