Being the first vice president who had also served as secretary of defense, naturally my duties tended toward national security. I focused on those challenges day to day, mostly free from the usual political distractions. I had the advantage of being a vice president content with the responsibilities I had, and going about my work with no higher ambition. Today, I’m an even freer man. Your kind invitation brings me here as a private citizen – a career in politics behind me, no elections to win or lose, and no favor to seek.--Former Vice-President Dick the Dick Cheney speaking to the American Enterprise Institute, May 21, 2009Sometimes it's hard to imagine a bigger Dick than Cheney. If this man is so free, so unfettered from political ambition, then why is he worried about his public image so much. If he has no favor to seek, then why is he making the talk show rounds to try and convince the world he shouldn't be tried for war crimes?
Poor W, didn't have the intellect to run the country and still doesn't have the brains to defend himself and his policies. The fact that Cheney is the one doing all the ranting and raving tells you what you already knew-Cheney was Gepetto and George his wooden creation.
Aside from that, Americans would be advised to ignore the Devil in Vice-Presidential clothing. Let's focus instead on health-care reform, education for our children, and environmental stewardship; let's leave the devil to Daniel Webster.
