Skip to comments.Cheney as Toast: Democrats Burning Down the House
Posted on 02/17/2006 7:39:20 AM PST by presidio9
Some say Dick Cheney is toast. He's too hot to handle, throw him over the side if he won't drop himself into the waves. Don't look now, but that isn't water surrounding the Bush ship of state. It's gasoline. The issue titled "Dick Cheney" is just one of many embers.
Have you ever noticed how on a scale of one to 10, every untoward event in the life of the Bush presidency goes straight to a 10?
The Abu Ghraib photos? A 10 forever. Dick Cheney catching a hunting buddy with some birdshot? An instant 10. The Bush National Guard story? Total 10. How can it be that each downside event in this presidency greets the public at this one, screeching level of outrage and denunciation by the out-of-power party and a perpetually outraged media?

Another great post.
I hope that someone recorded that ballad Cheney sang at the end of the Brit Hume segment yesterday. I laughed so hard I spotted.
Cheney is not the problem. The radical left-wing media is. There will be a backlash over these Cheney attacks if they keep it up and they will.
Dan Henninger's is the best weekly column going.
I agree about the backlash coming.
The Chappiquiddic thing is being FORCED back with this. What fools. (Of course they are: If they weren't fools, they would never be liberals!)
Why the vice president of the U.S. should suddenly worry about not being believed is beyond me, especially given his routine and very bold use of distorted information and outright falsehoods about national security threats.
I can think of only one rational answer to Cheney's question: something else happened and the current story is a cover-up.
Or maybe it is not weird at all for Cheney to reasonably think that the press wouldn't believe anything he said.
If Cheney said that the sky was blue, the press would argue with him until night time, then scream about Cheney being a liar.
Perhaps Cheney thinks there are conspiracy-minded lunatics out there who wouldn't believe him if he said the sun rises in the east. "What did he do with the sun? How deep does this cover-up go?"
I'm with you that it shouldn't end now. I hope the 'rats and presstitutes pound on this thing even harder and longer. I really do (but for different reasons)...
This is a joke right?
The press WILL NOT accept the word of V.P. Cheney that he has regular bowel movements, let alone anything else. They have an agenda to discredit this administration at any cost and they are sticking to it.
Being that you've been on this board as long as you have, you should have ample examples pointed out to you over the years to prove the truth in this.
I'm going to assume you're joking on this one....it's too obvious to be believed.
That was from the Jimmy Kimmel show, it was hilarious!
I always look forward to Henninger on Fridays.
Examples, please. Plural, as you said "outright falsehoods." Unless you're going to use the tired old line of, "No weapons of mass destruction were found!" They were there, every knowledgeable Western intelligence agency in the world knew it and reported it, and afterward the weapons were moved because Saddam had literally MONTHS of advance notice. So don't use "no WMD found!" as an example because it isn't outright and it isn't a falsehood. Simply cite here examples of Cheney's "outright falsehoods about national security threats."
FreeRepublic's oldest and most battle-hardened troll is back!!!
Someone threw out rotted meat to draw you out of hiding, I see. Before you reply that Cheney is the rotted meat, I shall save you the typing. Please come up with some sort of facts to back up your innuendo. I know it isn't familiar terrority for you, but please. Otherwise, you'll lose the respect you've gained around here...lol
What damn business is it of anyones on what happenend on a private outing amongst friends? Why do you liberals have to have your noses up everyones asses? Get a job life or whatever it is you losers do.

Obviously Scooter Libby, Karl Rove, green aliens, black helicopters, the CIA, crack cocaine, PNAC, and Diebold are all involved in this coverup 1,000,000 times worse than Watergate.
MurryMom, you are a nut
Because he understands the mentality of the MSM. He's a smart man. And wise too. He' probably the best VP this country has ever been blessed to have serve.
Seriously, why do they keep you around here?
Creepy lying troll.
What if, right after FR surfaced as a force in the Clinton impeachment period, a bunch of people signed up as democrat sympathizers and stayed mostly under cover until...about now?
We wish you nothing but the best MurryMom but please keep up with your meds so the Dr's will let you play with us.
Indeed. That was a blast from the past, wasn't it?
I have always been suspicous that you are Senator Patty Murry's mom. I think this confirms it!
It wouldn't be so bad if they would stop at "noses"...
I got an email this a.m. with the "Word of the Week":
"I'd rather go hunting with Dick Cheney than ride with Ted Kennedy".
That's a caustic replay from the Nizon days when the Libs were posting Nixon's picture and asking "Would you buy a used car from this man?" They stopped when someone said, "No, and I wouldn't ride in one driven by Ted Kennedy".
Just once, Dear God, I'd love to see some conservative who is being grilled by the senate and told by Ted that he's not in the mainstream, reply, "I'd be careful of that metaphor Senator, for yours passes under a pretty odious bridge". It would be fun to see Ted's veins swell and pop.
Taranto had a wonderful analogy, comparing Democrats to Wiley Cayote who would buy a new gadget (outrage about something) from ACME each week, absolutely guaranteed to catch the Roadrunner (Bush). Each of these gadgets would fail, the Roadrunner always escaping, and Wiley Cayote winding up as a puff of dust at the bottom of a cliff. Beep! Beep!
Do you have anything whatsoever to back this up, or are you just scandal-mongering as usual because you hate this aadminstration?
Do you still believe the U.S. military is composed of "christofascists?"
The Abu Ghraib photos? A 10 forever. Dick Cheney catching a hunting buddy with some birdshot? An instant 10. The Bush National Guard story? Total 10
Someday, my prince will come
I can think of only one rational answer to Cheney's question
The fact that you were even able to conjure up one single scenario speaks volumes as to the improvements youve made regarding your limited mental capacity.
Congratulations. I remember when swallowing your own saliva was too mentally taxing for you.
It still is. But her kids rigged up one of those dental suction devices up next to the computer so she can post without shorting out the keyboard.
Harry Whittington actually died and the delay is so that Karl Rove can get the Whittington double's plastic surgery completed and the Whittington family's cover story planted.
Does this mean you will no longer support the Republicans?
SAY IT AIN'T SO!!!!!
Seriously, why do they keep you around here?
For the laughs. Just read some of the inanity that is posted by this high school drop out. Hilarious!!
I've always suspected the same thing.
Also, many left-wing techies use multiple computers and/or sign on names.
And like alqaida, they will hide amongst the normal population a long time in order to use their subterfuge to further their cause.
"Cheney is not the problem. The radical left-wing media is. There will be a backlash over these Cheney attacks if they keep it up and they will."
This is the Media and DNC's SOP to damage good conservatives. They make huge controversies and outrageous tinfoil stories about them to the point where people start believing them (see Goebbels), then they label these strong and eloquent conservatives as lightening rods and damaged goods and call for their ouster. It happened with Gingrich, DeLay, Prior, and on and on.
So we had to kill Harry.
Cheny flushed an Illegal Immigrant out of the grass and poor ol' Harry stood up at the wrong time! By the way, go back to DU, they have the kind of "information" you're looking for over there.
