There Is Something About Cheney

Finally someone from the Bush Administration is firing back.  Sorry that may be in poor taste considering Dick Cheney’s hunting accident a few years ago.  Cheney’s buddy survived the face full of buck shot, but Nancy Pelosi may not.  Anyone who watches the former VP and is not impressed by his tone, knowledge, straight forwardness, and gravitas is in denial.

I was frankly often disappointed at the Bush White House for not being more proactive in defense of their policies.  As a Bush supporter, I felt abandoned when they would not defend themselves even against the most vitriolic attacks.  This policy was generally attributed to W’s respect for the office of the president and not wanting to lower the office to that level.
