    Cheney: Obama has learned that Bush policies were right By Daniel Strauss - 01/17/11 05:18 PM ET President Obama has “learned from experience” that some of the Bush administration’s decisions on terrorism issues were necessary, according to former Vice President Dick Cheney. In his first interview since undergoing major heart surgery last July, Cheney said he thinks Obama has been forced to rethink some of his national security positions now that he sits in the Oval Office. "I think he's learned that what we did was far more appropriate than he ever gave us credit for while he was a...

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney is rebounding from five weeks in the hospital this summer, and plans about 10 stops on the speaking circuit in coming months – along with some hunting trips as well, according to friends. Cheney spent much of the summer at Inova Fairfax Heart and Vascular Institute, a stay that was prolonged by a bout of pneumonia. He had a left ventricular assist device implanted, a pump that is used in dire cases, and that can be used as a bridge to a heart transplant. The former vice president hasn’t decided whether to seek a heart...

    Close to 10,000 people crowded into the Bakersfield Business Conference's main tent to see former Vice President Dick Cheney be "interviewed" by Lynne Cheney, his wife of 46 years. Collecting that many people all under one tent roof is a sight to see, and Mrs. Cheney commented on what a great crowd the conference had brought together. "It's almost enough to make you want to run for office again," the former vice president quipped. "Almost." Dick Cheney worked with four of the five Republican presidents following the Eisenhower administration. With that in mind, Mrs. Cheney asked, "So who's your favorite...

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney was released from a suburban Washington hospital on Monday following surgery last month to install a pump that helps his failing heart work. Cheney left Inova Fairfax Heart and Vascular Institute in Northern Virginia to continue his recovery at his home, according to a statement released by his office. Cheney, 69, has had five heart attacks since he was 37 and suffers from congestive heart failure.

    For the first time, former President George W. Bush has said publicly that he approves of former Vice President Dick Cheney’s high-profile role in defending the past administration’s national security policies. “I’m glad Cheney is out there,” Bush said Friday morning at a reunion breakfast that was the inaugural event for the Bush-Cheney Alumni Association. The reception, held at a downtown Washington hotel, was closed to the press. Attendees supplied this account of the remarks. Cheney originally had been scheduled to appear with Bush but did not come because he is recovering from a heart scare. Bush visited his former...

    WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Dick Cheney is recovering from a "mild heart attack" — his latest bout in a long battle against heart disease. Cheney was feeling fine on Tuesday and likely to be sent home from a Washington hospital within a day or two, aides aid. He experienced chest pain on Monday, and lab results revealed evidence of the heart attack, spokesman Peter Long said. "The whole family has been working with heart disease for decades, and they are vigilant and attuned to treatment," said political consultant Mary Matalin, a friend and former counselor to Cheney.

    Previewing the President's speech tonight, NBC's Matt Lauer invited on Karl Rove, on Tuesday's Today show, and pressed the former White House senior adviser if the reason Afghanistan still required the U.S.'s attention is because the previous administration "took its eye off the ball in Afghanistan," and "concentrated too heavily on Iraq." Rove hit back, accusing Lauer and Bush administration critics of "revisionism." And later, when Lauer questioned if there were enough "resources" to counter the Taliban resurgence in Afghanistan Rove fired back that any one in the Obama administration was in no position to criticize: "Well look, first of...

    THE first signs have emerged that former US vice-president Dick Cheney lost faith in his former boss George W.Bush for going "soft" after refusing to listen to his advice. Mr Cheney, who has always steadfastly supported the former US president, has reportedly told colleagues and political experts of his disappointment as Mr Bush's resolve weakened in response to souring public opinion during his second term. According to The Washington Post, the man often called the most influential vice-president in US history has made known his feelings during discussions about a memoir he is writing that publishers have been told is...

More private reflections, as his memoir takes shape in slashing longhand on legal pads, have opened a second front against Cheney's White House partner of eight years, George W. Bush. Cheney's disappointment with the former president surfaced recently in one of the informal conversations he is holding to discuss the book with authors, diplomats, policy experts and past colleagues. By habit, he listens more than he talks, but Cheney broke...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — President Barack Obama said Thursday the Bush administration took America’s national security “off course” in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attack. After September 11, “faced with an uncertain threat, our government made a series of hasty decisions,” Obama said. “I believe that many of these decisions were motivated by a sincere desire to protect the American people. But I also believe that all too often our government made decisions based on fear rather than foresight. That all too often trimmed facts and evidence to fit ideological predispositions.”

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney on Sunday continued his verbal attack against President Obama, saying that the country is more vulnerable to a potential terrorist attack since the Obama administration took power. Mr. Cheney said that administration's dismantling of many of the policies and protections instituted by President George W. Bush after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks — including the planned closing of the Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba and halting controversial prisoner interrogation techniques — have made the country more vulnerable to future attacks. "That's my belief," Mr. Cheney said on CBS' "Face the Nation." "I think...

    Of course Sarah Palin is much cuter than Dick Cheney. As the must-have Republican political button from St. Paul put it: "Hottest VP from Coldest State."

He shook hands with doctors and then walked to his motorcade without any assistance, although he moved slower than his normally brisk pace. Cheney was under local anesthesia during the six-hour surgery Saturday. His spokesman, Steve Schmidt, said the vice president was doing well but...

    John Forbes Kerry, father of two heterosexual daughters, today apologized for referring to the sexual preference of Vice President Dick Cheney's daughter during last night's final presidential debate. "There's nothing wrong with being one of God's homosexual children," said Mr. Kerry, an openly-heterosexual veteran of foreign war who is also a U.S. Senator, "And far be it from me to pry into the private life of Mr. Cheney's lesbian child, who is gay and a homosexual. People can't choose whom they will love, and so I should not have mentioned that his daughter is a lesbian person, and not a...

There are no new pics today, but a few good late entries from yesterday and Sunday, and a great one released from the Republican Convention.Word has it that today is also Barney’s birthday, so we can assume the First Family participated in a celebration of the First Doggie’s fourth birthday! The polls are looking good so it’s a another GOOD day to be a Bushbot! Enjoy your trip to Sanity...

    Friday, April 30, 2004 Anybody can call someone a horse's patoot. But it's a special person who can call someone a horse's patoot and show a picture of the patoot. Are chicken cartoons as visual aids really necessary to make the insult complete? Apparently New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg thinks so. On Wednesday, the World War II veteran brought a drawing of a chicken onto the Senate floor while he was calling Vice President Dick Cheney the "lead chicken hawk." So I guess you could say it was the picture of the chicken that showed Lautenberg's pluck. In what may...

    On a day when there will be more than 8,000 parties across America being held in his honor, President Bush appeared with Vice President Cheney for three and a half hours before the 9/11 Commission in the White House, in a session that was described as ‘cordial.’ He then went to the Rose Garden to make a statement, and answer questions from the White House press pool. Reports on the President‘s appearance are that he answered 99% of the questions himself (with no help from the Vice President), was more than thorough in his responses, and even kidded the panelists...

    In a speech that often evoked the events of Sept. 11, 2001, Vice President Dick Cheney emphasized Jan. 14 that the global war against terrorism is a long-term struggle. Cheney spoke to the Los Angeles World Affairs Council. "Remembering what we saw on 9/11, and knowing the nature of these enemies, we have as clear a responsibility as could ever fall to government," Cheney said. "We must do everything in our power to keep terrorists from gaining weapons of mass destruction." He said the issue is an urgent responsibility that has shifted the country's national security strategy. "There are certain...
