In My Time

It seems that I grew up with Dick Cheney and hardly knew it until the last ten years.  Vice President Cheney’s political career and life really spanned my teenage years when he was with Nixon/Ford then Bush 1 then Bush 2.  There is perhaps no greater lightening rod in the Republican party than Mr. Cheney.  I sit near a gentleman at work who volunteered how much he hated Dick Cheney when he noticed that I was reading his book at lunch.  Like his career In My Time is a long account of his time in both the private and public sector.  Mr. Cheney provides a great deal of depth behind many of the most “controversial” decisions made during the Bush presidency.  I used the quotes around controversial because they perhaps weren’t so controversial when you read his side; a side of decisions that were not advanced enough for my taste.
