WASHINGTON (AP) -- Don't blame the Bush administration for all the country's economic problems.

That's the message from former Vice President Dick Cheney.

President Barack Obama constantly talks about the enormous economic troubles that he inherited when he took office in January. Cheney agrees that Obama did indeed came into power amid very difficult economic circumstances......."

This will give to Obots something to have a fit about. If you want to know the cause of the problem you go back to the beginning. The beginning was giving mortgages to unqualified borrowers. Had this not happened......

Thank goodness Cheney is talking publicly again. Maddow, Olberman and Matthews had run out of material.

I’m an admirer of Vice-President Cheney’s but President Bush does bear some responsibility for signing the first stimulus package. Which paved the way for the second, and third, and.....

Mr. deficits-aren’t-a-problem strikes again.

While Bush may not be explicitly at fault for this particular downturn; he didn’t support any sort of sound fiscal policies during his presidency, but then again he ran as a “compassionate conservative” so what did we expect?

Actually, “discretionary spending” under Bush did decline.

I do wish that W had been more of a budget hawk, -— but it is not fair to say he did nothing at all, on that front.

As a former President, George W. Bush will follow the proper style and not make comments about his successor. As the former Vice President, Dick Cheney is under no such restriction and I am expecting him to take the media and Bambi to the woodshed often and effectively.

Carter and Slick have violated the honored principle of keeping their big, fat mouthes shut. But, what do you expect from a couple of RATS?

The article didn’t indicate where Cheney places the blame.

Simply Put at the Root of all evils on Earth there is a DemocRat.

That's because Cheney can actually articulate a response without sounding like a version of demoRAT lite like GW Bush. I wish that Cheney would unleash himself on the demoRATs & Oboooombi, like the former demoRAT prez's & VP's did constantly to GW Bush, and GW Bush never ever ventured any counter attack. I wish that Cheney would consider going on the offensive against Obooombi & the demoRATs as payback for the last 8 years.

“I’m glad to see old Dick taking it to the enemy.”

I’d like to see Cheney float the idea that he is open to the idea of running for Pres. in 2012 - then watch as Dim heads begin exploding.
