Gibbs on Cheney. Delicious.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs on Dick Cheney’s disapproval of how the Obama administration is handling the torture issue:

“We’ve had a at least two-year policy disagreement with the [former] Vice President of the United States of America [Dick Cheney]. That policy disagreement is whether or not you can uphold the values in which this country was founded at the same time that you protect the citizens that live in that country,” said Gibbs. “The President of the United States and this administration believes that you can. The Vice President [Cheney] has come to, in our opinion, a different conclusion.”
