Dick Cheney appeared on Hannity, and stated what all thinking people know to be true, Obama is the radical in Washington, D.C., not the Tea Party:

FMR VICE PRES. DICK CHENEY: I’m not unsympathetic to the frustration, I think, that’s led many Americans to sign on for or become part of the tea party. I’m as frustrated as anybody else can be, but I think we have a situation where the circumstances in Washington, the inability and the unwillingness of the this administration to come to grips with our basic long-term debt problem, for example. The frustration out there is very, very high. And so when I see people talking about the tea party, I don’t think of the tea party as extremists the way some of the folks in Washington want to describe them. The extremist in Washington is Barack Obama. He’s the guy that wants to fundamentally transform our health care system. He’s the guy who has done enormous damage to America’s standing in the world. To the extent there is an extremist or radical political view in Washington these days, I believe it is the president of the United States.

Cheney also was on The Today Show, defending “loyal, patriotic” Tea Party:

And as a palate cleanser, here’s Cheney on 60 Minutes, where Dr. Sanjay Gupta tried to imply Cheney was mentally disabled because of his heart condition at the time of the decisions on Iraq and Afghanistan. Cheney had none of it.
