The Dick Cheney question

Amidst reports that Harry Whittington's injuries are perhaps more serious than previously believed, questions are beginning to swirl about whether Cheney will complete his term in office.

I wouldn't be sorry to see him go. I never thought he was a particularly good choice for VP, and I regret that the Republicans didn't take the opportunity to replace him on the ticket in 2004.

But that being said, there's an important point that I think a lot of people in this debate are forgetting. The vice president cannot simply be fired like a normal cabinet member. As far as I know, the only way to force Cheney out of office would be through an impeachment process. In other words, all the questions about whether Bush "should" replace him or not are moot. He can't do it.

Cheney could resign, of course, and the president could ask him to do so, but I somehow don't see it happening.

Questions from whom, exactly?

Harry Reid?

Howard Dean?

Sorry, I don't buy it, Barry.

You are entitled to be the only person on the planet that likes Cheney. It is your right :)

Really? People think Cheney will resign? Cheney? Really?

Where did Mal say he "LIKED" Dick Cheney?

His post merely asked "who's asking the questions."

Personally I'd prefer Pat Buchanan or maybe even a Walter E Williams to G W Bush any day, but then I'd prefer Bush & Cheney to any of the Democrats I see around today...except for Zell Miller.

I like Cheney, Blew Wind, and I know lots of other people who do.

My only complaint so far is his choice of hunting companions. John Kerry is an avid hunter if I recall correctly. Why doesn't Dick take John out into the woods sometime? Teddy Kennedy can drive Teresa home.

bring on LaCondi!

Wow...are you part of a cult of some sort? Who else do you like?

The current reporting on Cheney's hunting accident is mostly a crass kind of "Gotcha" game by many members of the American press.

Harry Whittington's injuries are an after-thought and that insensitivity goes to a harsh bit of reality. By now everyone is aware that one of the major problems facing the future of American education and a big part of the gist of America's current "educational dilemma," is that education majors are the group that does the worst, in terms of their SAT scores, of all College entrants. In other words, they are among the least competitive College applicants. A point the great Tom Sowell has brought home numerous times over the past three decades.

Often overlooked is the fact that Communications and Journalism majors aren't much better.

Those three are among the majors one can take that are heavy in the relatively less demanding "liberal Arts" classes, like English Lit and History and light on math and the hard sciences.

That's probably why so many of the former Communicatrions and Journalism majors in the Press can't understand why the results, even the occurance of secret Military Tribunals are, well, SECRET, meaning unavailable to both the citizenry and the Press.

For instance, we DON'T have to know how many terrorists were swept up in the targeted illegal alien round-up of the over 4,000 Arabic and Muslim males, post-9/11.

Illegal aliens don't have the right to a Civil Trial, in fact, they have NO/zero Constitutional rights whatsoever. They can be detained in secret, questioned without advice of counsel and charged, and if there is any evidence that they were involved with, or supported any form of Islamo-cultism/Islamo-nazism, they can be held and dealt with via secret Military Tribunals and the government doesn't have to report either the results of, or the places where those Tribunals are held.

That's sort of the benefit of that secret status.

The Press wants to claim that the way the accident was handled goes to show the "poor judgment" of Dick Cheney. Mr Whittington was immediately attended to by Cheney's private medical staff and airlifted to a hospital for immediate treatment. It's an interesting charge, coming as it does, from a Press which has consistently acted recklessly and irresponsibly over Gitmo, often echoing the sentiments of the International Red Cross, which has cited the forced intrevenous feeding of hunger strikers as Gitmo as "torture."

Perhaps the WORST thing about the hunting accident was its timing, coming as it did on the very same weekend that AlGore addresed the Saudis and gave us all a glimpse into his post-9/11 sentiments, "President Al Gore told a mainly Saudi audience yesterday that the U.S. government committed "terrible abuses" against Arabs after 9/11 and said most Americans opposed such treatment.

"Gore also accused the Bush administration of playing into al Qaeda's hands by "thoughtlessly" blocking visas for Saudis.

"Fifteen of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were Saudis who got visas under a visa "express" program. It was ended after 9/11, and Saudis are now subject to tougher scrutiny.

"The worst thing we can possibly do is to cut off the channels of friendship and mutual understanding between Saudi Arabia and the United States," Gore said at the economic forum.

"Gore said Arabs in the United States had been "indiscriminately rounded up . . . and held in conditions that were just unforgivable . . . Unfortunately..."


There's AlGore's response to 9/11, no doubt the same as his immediate response would've been - no wars in the Mid-East, no seeking to remake the Mid-East over in our own image, but more of that Liberal fuzzy navel thinking - contemplating what America did wrong - that makes American Liberalism so pathetic.

...are you part of a cult of some sort? Who else do you like?

Off the top of my head: Derek Jeter, Johnny Damon, Mariano Riviera, Jorge Pasada, Tino Martinez, Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, Larry Kudlow, Toni Braxton, Carrie Underwood, Kiefer Sutherland, Bart Simpson, Bruce Willis, Scarlett Johansen, John Travolta, Gwynneth Paltrow, Johnny Depp, Liv Tyler, John Waters, Condi Rice, J.D. Hayworth, Julius Ceasar Watts, Rudy Guiliani, Mayor Mike, Governor Schwarzenegger, Karl Rove...the list just goes on and on...and of course: Bushie and Pickles (and I think the twins are hot).

Ok...You certainly need help...

P.S. The twins are kind of hot but so are millions of other women. I am not that impressed with them.
