NBC News via msn.com ^ | October 9, 2010

interviewed" by his wife, Lynne

Interviewed in quotes because it wasn't a REAl hard-hitting interview, like the ones the MSM give to Obama.

Here are some interviews, as opposed to "interviews,:

http://www.noquarterusa.net/blog/2009/08/31/you-wanna-talk-softball-questions/

Charlie Gibson on GMA, during the campaign:

How does it feel to break a glass ceiling? How does it feel to “win”? How does your family feel about your “winning” breaking a glass ceiling? Who will be your VP? Should you choose Hillary Clinton as VP? Will you accept public finance? What issues is your campaign about? Will you visit Iraq? Will you debate McCain at a town hall? What did you think of your competitor’s [Clinton] speech?

(Same source as above.)

First, do you still like this job?

LeBron James is with us tomorrow night. We pre-interviewed him. And he says, all things being equal, he's probably leaning toward Cleveland. That's where he grew up, in Akron. But he grew up a Bull fan. You want him to go to Chicago, right? What did you say? Clear it up.

I saw you singing to 'Michelle' last night with Paul McCartney. That was a pretty nice kick, huh?

Interviewed was in quotes but I think everyone understood it wasn’t a journalistic interview. This was friendly territory (Bakersfield Business Conference) and somewhat of a joint appearance by the two of them to best facilitate what he wanted to communicate.

Bush and Cheney should stay out of the limelight till November, Obama, Pelosi, and Reid are doing a great job of motivating the American people to vote them out of power.

I understand that. But it was an interview, i.e. “A conversation...in which facts or statements are elicited from another.” Reporters think they have control of the language of journalism.

Yep, they are living in the pre-blog past, and even if they wake up, it’s far too late for it to do them any good.

Bush IS out of limelight.

Cheney has never ceased making his points about the WOT and I hope he doesn’t.

He has avoided other topics.

He’s like my Dad but a little more tame. I do believe that he should come out right now, provided his health allows, and make these final weeks a real victory and vindication.

Of course, we wouldn’t want to have a compare and contrast visual as a reminder.

Hey, where’s the complaint?

Dick Cheney is in bed with his interviewer, his wife Lynne.

The Democrats are “in-bed” with their interviewers, the MSM “presstitutes”.

????

And the worst of it is, the presstitutes still try to PRETEND that they’re doing a “journalistic” interview, when in fact - when it comes to Obama - they’re doing no such thing.

Only defense Cheney need give is “Obama has adopted and continued almost all of our anti-terror policies. So shut the (Cheney’s favorite swear word) up.”

“Bush and Cheney should stay out of the limelight till November, Obama, Pelosi, and Reid are doing a great job of motivating the American people to vote them out of power.”

I agree, and no disrespect at all to the former President and Vice-President.

Just let nature take its course...

His picture is on Drudge this morning. I hope it was from a bad angle, he looks verrrry thin and frail. I hope he is well, he’s always been a favorite of mine. God Bless him and his family.

Again, said it before, I’ll say it again.

Bush IS out of the limelight.

Cheney has never stopped reminding people of the necessary WOT, and I hope he never stops reminding us.

Otherwise he has avoided political topics.

Sadly, the picture reveals what congestive heart failure does to someone.

The man is only alive now because a machine is doing substitute work for his heart.

This was explained the last time he was in the hospital.

Thanks for the ping, txrangerette.

Would that we had adults and patriots like Bush and Cheney in the WH now! God BLESS them both!

(btw, he really does look frail, doesn't he? Prayers for him and his family. They have endured much).

I still remember what Rush said when Bush Sr. and Barbara got on the plane, leaving Bill and Hillary.

Sumpin like, “The grownups are leaving. We’re Home Alone.”

That’s how I felt when Dubya and Laura left. But we were left even more alone with the circus we were left with.

Obama and Michelle. How low could we go? I hope that’s it.

Cheney has offspring who will serve us well. His wife is a jewel also. And Liz Cheney is a pistol. I see a political future for her.

I do too, altura!

He's been 'hanging in there' a whole lot longer than most people thought he could. I'll bet he makes it a few more years.

(Remember the criticism of Bush's choice of Cheney? That he was too sick and wouldn't last four years? That was more than 10 years ago. :)

“Sumpin like, “The grownups are leaving. We’re Home Alone.”

I remember that!

There was a lot that I disagreed with GW about, but I know he loves this country, and has it’s best interests at heart.

No so with the current admin...in spades.

Is that racist? lol
