Should Cheney Resign? (Ultra Barf Alert!)
The Atlantic ^ | March 6, 2007 | Andrew Sullivan

Posted on 03/15/2007 7:54:43 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

His health is rough; he has been the most disastrous vice-president in history; he has lost two wars; he has lost every ally; he is despised in much of the country; he is now going to be the center of all the questions that the Libby guilty verdict raise. Why did he get so exercized about a two-bit critic during a critical time in the Iraq war? Why would he risk losing his most trusted aide by coordinating a media sting on a minor political opponent? Why would he risk committing a crime to pursue Wilson unless he had something very serious to hide? He will now have to answer many questions - either before the press or before the Senate. Mark Daniels asks the right questions:

I think Dick Cheney is a hail of a Vice President.

It sounds like Andrew Sullivan might be slipping into AIDS-related dementia.

Did I miss something? What "wars" did he "lose"? We lost 3,000+ men in Iraq. While every life is precious, in 4 years that is one-half the number of men we lost on Iwo Jima in 4 weeks! And who cares about Iwo Jima today? Andrew Sullivan just sounds ignorant and ill-informed with this screed.

It seems every week there is the question, Should (fill in the blank) resign?

Next, they will be asking if the the guy that cleans up after Barney and Beasley should resign.

He seems to be doing pretty well for a guy who has supposedly had HIV for so many years. Do you think he just made it up to become more popular with the "bug chasers" at his circuit parties?

In May 2001, Village Voice columnist Michael Musto said that Andrew Sullivan had anonymously posted advertisements for bareback sex (anal sex without a condom) on America Online and the now-defunct website barebackcity.com.

I think Nancy Pelosi should resign because she's incompetent, can't clean up the corruption within her own nest of vipers, has hoof and mouth disease and the list goes on. It's about time the leadership of the GOP started fighting back against this hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, yearly attack on the Administration.

Sullivan's critics have argued that it was hypocritical of Sullivan to engage in this kind of sexual activity while arguing against gay sexual promiscuity. They claim that the vision of gay sexuality presented in Sullivan's writing is at odds with the activities he was said to be engaging in. They also charge that because Sullivan is HIV-positive, it was unsafe for him to engage in sex without a condom.

(And we are supposed to rely on the judgment of such an individual?)

Any time I read drivel like this, I remember back towards the end of Regan's second term. He was constantly lambasted as being a complete idiot by almost every segment of the media. This is the same bile.

12,513 dead or missing in 11 weeks of combat.

And idiots like Mike Barnicle has the gall to call the Iraq War the "worst military disaster in American history". Despicable.

Sure, then W could appoint Fred Thompson as Veep, Two months before the Election, W could resign Leaving Fred to run as an incumbant for the last two months. (Hey, it makes as much sense as their drivel, Grin)

I wonder how many posts I'll get by angry people?

I have a long list of people who should resign before Cheney, including Sens. "Splash" Kennedy, Leaky Leahy, Dirty Harry, Chuckie Schumer, the unbearably smug Dodd, the unbearably pretentious, butt ugly Carl Levin, the shameless Kerry, that ass Feingold, the insufferable Boxer and of course, the honest and charming Mrs. Clinton (I do not include Obamayomama on my list because he hasn't done anything). Also Waxman, Barney Frank, the wormlike Berman, the dainty Maxine Waters, former ballet dancer Emanuel, the professional veteran Murtha, the virtuous William Jefferson and the modest and unassuming Sheila Jackson Lee --- all of whom have done incredible damange to our country and all of whom can fairly be described as traitors. I could go on but you get the idea. Only after they go should anyone look at Cheney sideways.

They sure did. Poor President Reagan was constantly called senile for forgetting things or so they said. During those contra trials I wanted to kill the media. They made it seem like he was a dingbat. How dare they?

I always thought SNL had the best skits about Reagan--around the press he'd be a dimwitted idiot, but behind the scenes he'd be the sharpest tack in the box. :-)

Sounds a bit like our current CIC, eh?

Given the effectiveness with which the administration has been defending itself of late, it wouldn't surprise me if BOTH Cheney and Gonzales resigned before the year was out.

The Dims and MSM have them completely on defense. Apologizing, admitting mistakes, throwing Rumsfeld overboard, etc. Meanwhile, they are having some successes in the WOT and North Korea, and the news cycle gets completely taken over by silly, petty federal attorney firings. They are so far back on their heels, the Dims are scoring layup after layup. Pathetic, really.

Meanwhile, the President is down in Mexico groveling over illegals. Like his father he is fighting desperately for a legacy, even one defined by the Democrats. Sooner or later, it seems, all presidents figure out that the history books are written by socialists.

The fact that an article like this can have one ounce of credibility is less repulsive than the fact that the administration will take it seriously and start apologizing, admitting mistakes and throwing people overboard.

Lies are worthless unless they are strung together to create a story exactly opposite the truth. There cannot be a scintella of truth in the deception of these Marxists or their fantasy will tumble around them. They must provide a complete fabrication, finished in every detail, an alternate reality.
They stand against the truth in pure Machiavellian rhetoric, ready to provide an evil concoction, a witches brew of connivance sufficient to give the weak of mind and the hateful a conspiracy with which to fight the truth.

According to James H. Hallas, Killing Ground on Okinawa: The Battle for Sugar Loaf Hill (Praeger, 1996), US ground forces lost 7,613 killed or missing during the Okinawa campaign (82 days), along with 31,312 wounded and 26,211 "other" casualties; the US Navy lost 4,320 killed and 7,312 wounded. The Sixth Marine Division lost 8,227 killed or wounded (including over 2,000 in the seven days it took to take Sugar Loaf Hill).

My hope is that Bush will resign and give us a real president that can and will stand up to these rats, one who can offer a cogent defense to conservative positions and pound the daylights out of the media. The greatest example of this is the day RR with a fervent anger told the New Hampshire media that attempted to shut off the microphones at the republicans candidates debate (which had been paid by the Reagan campaign) because George Bush refused to participate, "Mr Green, I paid for that microphone". I still remember standing in my living room and cheering. He won that primary hands down even thought Bush was widely favored. We need more of that type of spirited defense of our principled positions. Sadly, we have not had such since RR. Cheney, and maybe Fred Thompson in 2008 might be able to provide it.

A step further, Fred could nominate a conservative that even the dems couldn't vilify...J.C.Watts as V.P.!

At the same time, he would be setting up for...16 ...years of Oval Office control AND allowing us Republicans to place the first black person as President.

heehee, haha, lalalala! That would be so much fun!
