I like Cheney much more than Bush, i think he's more level headed and just a better person really than the pres. Of course, he is bush's lackey and will follow him making rash decisions b/c its what he has to do politically.
From what i've seen as far as quick biographies of him focusing on his VP years are that he has basically followed behind GWB's political philosophies , attitudes and ideals ( i am making a big difference between this and plain ol' conservatism, he really is GWB's performing lapdog) , and within that framework i think he is basically running the show , he's definitely the brain behind the presidency but NOT the originating force behind everything. So in summary he may be managing the show but doesnt seem to have a lot of say so in its direction. He's bush's biatch
BTW wasn't cheney a bush crony before bush's presidency? Even during his governor years? Its sad that i know so little about texas' favorite son..
Approval rating? I could see it both ways as far as hating or liking. Perhaps they view the administration kind of like the old mafiosos viewed their respective U.S. administrations during the prohibition era : as a necessary evil, that lets them profit and flourish.This Iraq debacle has enabled terrorists to spread like HIV in a crackhead inside Iraq.
Hmm. I think there is a distinction to be made from the standpoint that Cheney had no motive of his own - ie, running for president. Therefore, he acted as a type of cabinet member in terms of policy instead of a figure-in-waiting.
I think you should go survey Cheney's resume - you don't have to like him, but he is one of the most accomplished men in politics. I don't think he has ever been a crony to anyone.
I don't know that dead terrorists are exactly the goal of the terrorists, nor do I see how a democratic vote and a constitution will further their aims.
Terrorists like like-minded American politicians - ones that talk about how Islamists' evildoing is 'not their fault', etc. That plays directly into their hands. I suspect that they aren't big fans of Cheney.
You post this kind of crap so you can get your "I hate Bush and everyone else does too hard-on". And when someone referes to part of the article you don't like you have to bring up the margin of error?
Call it even if that makes you feel better. The article said nothing about statistically even. I could give a shit. But the fact remains that Congress is doing just as badly in the eyes of the public - or should I say 900 some-odd "random" individuals - as the President.
I hope you are as eager to post polling data when the President starts climbing back up in the polls. I know how you pink pantied type liberals are - you think that a thousand random pollees are what makes this country go round. Please be sure to report the margin of error next November - 'kay?
Can you tell me what the margin of error was about a year ago? That's right - becasue when people are given the chance to speak with their vote - there is no margin of error. That's why so many on the left are watching the game instead of playing.
