  • Press Man: Cheney Reaction

    Commentary Magazine ^ | October 2011 | Andrew Ferguson
    I remember when it was socially acceptable to like and even admire Dick Cheney, whose memoir In My Time was greeted last month with unanimous catcalls from members of the mainstream press. For more than two decades, Washington’s mainstreamers considered Cheney a rare clubbable Republican—genial, brainy (he studied for a Ph.D. in political science), and safe. You could invite him to a dinner party and know he wouldn’t start spouting Bible verses and frighten the caterers. “Cheney is smart, he is tough, and he is totally trustworthy,” wrote the Washington Post’s David Broder, who served as unofficial spokesman for the...
  • Cheney's Book Is More Than Meets the Eye

    Days after an earthquake and a hurricane in the nation's capital, there were no locusts as some local wags nervously joked, but a forecast of "heads exploding all over Washington." And so they did. Former vice president Dick Cheney predicted that his memoir, "In My Time," would make Beltway craniums spontaneously combust. And if the man who has been congressman, defense secretary and corporate executive, among other roles, was looking for another career, he wouldn't make a bad psychic. As with many a Washington memoir, most quasi-readers skipped to the hot parts (if they bothered to consider reading the book...

    (Reuters) - Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Wednesday she resented what she viewed as an attack on her integrity by former Vice President Dick Cheney in his just-published memoir. Speaking in an interview with Reuters, Rice rejected Cheney's contention that she misled President George W. Bush about nuclear diplomacy with North Korea.

    No one should have expected that Dick Cheney's memoir would be anything but frank. Make that brutally frank. Such as this characterization of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's description to President George W. Bush of her proposed nuclear-weapons agreement with North Korea. It's on page 487: "Looking for a way to explain this situation, Rice said, 'Mr. President, this is just the way diplomacy works sometimes. You don't always get a written agreement.' The statement was utterly misleading, totally divorced from what the secretary was doing, which was urging the president, in the absence of an agreement, to pretend to...

    After VP Dick Cheney's interview with Matt Lauer on the Today Show, the camera pulls back and very deliberately captures the image of a protest sign. Watch the segment and ask yourself if this appears to be planned and maybe even rehearsed.

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney says his book, which hits bookstores Tuesday, will make heads explode.

    The Daily Caller ^ | August 28, 2011 | Jeff Poor
    Former Vice President Dick Cheney’s memoir is released on Tuesday and it promises to give a lot of behind the scenes insight into the Bush administration. But is it too tabloid-y? That’s a complaint coming from former Secretary of State Colin Powell. In an appearance on Sunday’s “Face the Nation” on CBS, Powell had a lot to say about how Cheney has been promoting his book. “My head isn’t exploding and I haven’t noticed any other heads exploding in Washington, D.C. and the explosive part of the book is when Mr. Cheney says is explosive,” Powell said.

    <p>Cheney writes that in 2008 he was puzzled about GOP presidential nominee John McCain’s decision to suspend his campaign and request a meeting with congressional leaders to discuss the financial crisis at the White House.</p> <p>“Senator McCain added nothing of substance,” Cheney writes about the now-famous meeting. “It was entirely unclear why he’d returned to Washington and why he’d wanted the congressional leadership called together. I left the Cabinet Room when the meeting was over thinking the Republican presidential ticket was in trouble.”</p>

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell on Sunday dismissed as "cheap shots" the criticism leveled at him and others in Vice President Dick Cheney's memoir. It was the latest volley in a clash that stretches back to their first years in the George W. Bush administration.

    The Upshot ^ | August 26, 2011 | Rachel Rose Hartman
    Following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Vice President Dick Cheney disappeared and was whisked off to a "secure, undisclosed location" to protect his safety. But Cheney never confirmed where exactly he hunkered down. That is, until now. Cheney confirms in his new memoir, "In My Time," that some of the speculation was correct--one of his "undisclosed locations" was his residence in Northwest Washington, D.C., the Washington Post reports. Which, in turn, means Joe Biden was right. Vice President Biden told the world in 2009 that he discovered the bunker beneath his home during a tour of his new house. Biden...

    Dick Cheney is already ruling the popular book sale lists, just days before the release of his 576-page book “In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir.” The former vice president’s attentive reception among American readers is bound to frustrate those journalists who have long been at war with Mr. Cheney. At Amazon, Mr. Cheney’s book is No. 3 on the top-100 list of all books. It is No. 1 on the Amazon’s political books roster, as well as sales lists for U.S. history and biographies. The substantial book is also No. 2 in all book sales at Barnes &...

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney says in a new memoir that he urged President George W. Bush to bomb a suspected Syrian nuclear reactor site in June 2007. But, he wrote, Mr. Bush opted for a diplomatic approach after other advisers — still stinging over “the bad intelligence we had received about Iraq’s stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction” — expressed misgivings
