    Hey, Cheney? Quit being a dick and retire to another “undisclosed location.” Your time on stage is up.

    It is said those in power get to write the history books. I don’t think that is as true today as it was 100 years ago due to the number of informed people in the world today.

    deadheadzan said,

    “It is said those in power get to write the history books. ”

    Actually, the saying is that the victors write the histories.

    And what it really refers to is the somewhat remote future’s history books.

    Rough translation of the sentence made by the tags;

    Incredible that such a gangster isn’t prosecuted for all those crimes. Poor Americans, they will have to pay for centuries the crimes of the Bush gang.

    All human existence is built on past experience, but when people reflect upon the past, they necesarily interpret it in terms of their own immediate present, making it part past, part fresent. Historical truth is elusive because the present (and Fox News) aLWAYS REVISES THE PAST.

    I take it that many of you prefer the hypoallergenic housepet, Joe Biden, alias Gaffe-Man, to the controversial, irascible, acerbic, and entertaining Dick Cheney?

    deadheadzan, there is a difference between an informed opinion, when compared to the pseudo-information gathering Huffington Post online net-heads, and applicable opinions, those that actually influence an ethos.

    the VP who fought every public disclosure of every kind, who believed nothing need ever be explained to anybody, who spent long periods in hiding in undisclosed locations, now can’t shut up … we’ve seen more of the evil Cheney in the last month than we ever saw of him as a sitting VP

    Last time I looked, the Vice President takes an oath to uphold the Constitution…..NOT to ‘be entertaining and irascible.”

    THAT’S what I prefer, and on that score Biden beats Cheney hands down

    I think the History lady needs to make a fresh entry on her journal,

    Cheney’s recent ripping indictment of the current administration’s policy was definitely a speech for the History books….

    Lt_Lanier - entertainment value is not a criterion for VP, but on that score both Cheney and Biden are high on the list. Integrity, accuracy, insight, all those would be better. Cheney lied constantly while in office, blocked any discussion of the “energy task force” that was stuffed with oil executives (including Ken Lay), and suddenly he wants to cherry-pick information? I note also that he carefully did not say in his speech that a major intent of the torture was to identify a nonexistent link between Iraq and Al Queda. If Al Gore had done what Cheney has been doing, he would have been condemned as a traitor by the Bush Administration. If Cheney honestly believes waterboarding isn’t torture, despite centuries of evidence otherwise, including our own condemnation of the Japanese use of it, then he’s a vile and ignorant human being. If he doesn’t, then this is all an elaborate CYA to prevent his being jailed. Take your pick.

    The conservatives consider a liberal hateful if he criticizes the actions of Bush or Cheney in any way, shape, or form.

    But they themselves are not hateful unless they run around with their hair on fire, screaming, “I HATE YOU!” at the top of their lungs.

    And even then, they’re probably being taken out of context.

    For 8 years Cheney was in an undisclosed location- now he has gone public and will do anything to make his point. He was so good at “leaking information” that if anything positive had come out of the use of “enhanced interrogation” it would have been leaked all ready.

    Disagreeing with something the previous administration did makes one a cultist for the current administration?

    Interesting.

    Or, maybe it’s agreeing with something the current administration did. Does that make one a cultist for the current administration?

    How do you define an “Obama cultist”, steve1945?

    steve, you are just bizarre. Unlike Bush supporters who brooked no dissent from the ranks, Democrats have have traditionally – and certainly recently – voiced their opposition to various initiatives the president has made. Obama hasn’t gotten any free rides from his own party, and you know it. Either you’re a liar or too numb in your brain from the constant drumming of the party talking points.

    Put an asterisk in front of and behind the word or words you want to italicize.

    like so

    It’s kind of squirrelly in this new format, however. Sometimes it doesn’t work at first, but works if you hit the ‘edit’ button and add them on the second go around.

    churchill - some of us are complaining that Obama isn’t liberal enough. But right now he is operating center and even a little right of center, which is pretty much where he is. Too bad – we could use a little more left, and a lot of Americans think so, too.

    Left, right are relative terms. If you were to read JFK’s speeches, you would find his ideas to the RIGHT of what is the mainstream republicanism today. That makes you, lefties, a group that JFK would have fought against.

    Not quite, petergrt. He established Medicare, started to support civil rights (he was nervous about the South bolting, which it did anyway), and laid the groundwork for what LBJ was able to put into place with the political capital of JFK’s assassination. Furthermore, he was a big believer in diplomacy, as you might expect from his family history. The main point of alignment was support for a strong military, which despite Republican smears, is held by both parties – and wasn’t well upheld by Bush in recent years.
