Where, in the excerpts discussed here, did the Vice President of the United States say that the President has the right “to dissolve the Constitution”? Cheney gave a general answer to a vague question and pointed out the obvious fact that the President does not have to consult Congress before launching nuclear weapons–mostly because in a launch situation, there would be no time for such | Read More »

    “I Will Be The Guy Honchoing That Policy”

    In his . . . er . . . inimitable way, Joe Biden informs us that he will be heading up a task force on the middle class. “Honchoing,” has apparently become a verb. Imagine if President Bush said something like that, etc. But so long as we are accepting this neologism, let it be noted that Dick Cheney has decided to honcho the education | Read More »

    Dick Cheney is just the BEST!

    Ever! And that’s just for starters. He also took the opportunity to lay waste to Joe Biden in his interview on Fox… In a blunt, unapologetic interview on “FOX News Sunday,” Cheney fired back at Biden for declaring in October that “Vice President Cheney has been the most dangerous vice president we’ve had probably in American history.” “He also said that all the powers and | Read More »

    Dick Cheney Stands Up For Protecting America

    After September 11, the United States awoke to a series of unpleasant realities: an enemy was at war with us, and had been for some years; that enemy was not a traditional nation-state, but a loose confederation of non-state-actors – with safe havens and support provided by foreign states, to be sure, but united by a common political/religious ideology rather than by a geographic base; | Read More »

    A better look at LA CD-4 shows cause for concern

    I had a chance back in November to meet John Fleming’s campaign strategist. He also happened to be congressman Paul Broun’s as well. Both men were in Augusta, GA the night before the general election and I enjoyed discussing politics and strategies with them both. I was invited to go back to Athens for a meet and greet and general election party but I had | Read More »

    Cheney is a creep. But, don’t indict him.

    Cheney lied us into unnecessary wars. Then, Cheney personally profited from those wars through his business interests. He endorsed torture, twisted our constitution to suit his purposes, and generally fits Joe Biden’s description of him as “the worst vice president ever.” Republicans should agree. Cheney betrayed all their conservative economic principles, did nothing to advance their domestic agenda, and discredited their foreign policy credentials. During | Read More »

    Dangerous Satire: The Bidens at the Naval Observatory

    Joe and Jill Biden dropped in on Dick and Lynn Cheney today at the U.S. Naval Observatory on Thursday. I could argue that the following transcript accurately reflects what was said, and it just might in a parallel universe, but, alas, this is satire. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ DOORMAN: Mr. Vice President, Mrs. Cheney, the Bidens are here for | Read More »

    John McCain Doesn’t Need a Dick Cheney

    Chris at Unequivocal Notion posits Obama picked up Joe Biden not because it’d excite the base, but because Joe Biden will be able to help Obama govern. McCain picked up Sarah Palin because it’d excite the base, not because Sarah Palin will be able to help McCain govern. If only Republicans put as much effort into governing as they put into running campaigns. I think | Read More »

    Here’s to Dick Cheney…

    If you were afforded the opportunity to jump into a time machine and appear in front of a twenty year old Adolph Hitler, would you go? If you were allowed to tote with you any gun of your choice, knowing what you know now, would you put a bullet right between his eyes? You would of course change history. You would have prevented the slaughter | Read More »
