The King of Blind Cynics

Dick, You're Fired!Oh, how I hate Dark Lord Dick. It’s amazing he doesn’t choke and stroke on his own duplicity. He believes any opposition to the War Without End is unthinking and motivated solely by power-plays. The Gang That Can’t Shoot Straight (but shoots constantly) judges the rest of the world by their own view, that winning is all that matters — domestically and in places there will be no win, like Iraq. Now that they’ve pissed away their dreams of a generation of Republican power, as Karl Rove ‘architected’ it — now they struggle to maintain any relevance at all. Step one: shut up. Step two: don’t prolong it — end it. Bush started it. If he were a leader, he’d finish it. Instead, he’s AWOL and leaving it for the next president. “Here’s the keys to the quagmire.” Just imagine what Cheney and the Radical Wrong will say when a Democrat is president — they’ll be counting the days until Impeachment. mjh

ABC News: Cheney, Reid Spar Over Iraq Policy By ANNE FLAHERTY

“Some Democratic leaders seem to believe that blind opposition to the new strategy in Iraq is good politics,” Cheney told reporters at the Capitol after attending the weekly Republican policy lunch. “Senator Reid himself has said that the war in Iraq will bring his party more seats in the next election.”

“It is cynical to declare that the war is lost because you believe it gives you political advantage,” Cheney said. – Cheney blasts Reid’s ‘defeatism’ By Klaus Marre

The vice president called it “cynical to declare that the war is lost because you believe it gives you political advantage. Leaders should make decisions based on the security interests of our country, not on the interests of their political party.” [mjh: you gotta admit every misstep BushCo makes is bad for their party — and the nation.]

Kucinich: Cheney impeachment effort ‘practical’, by Sabrina Eaton, Plain Dealer Bureau

Washington- After hinting for weeks that he would initiate impeachment actions against the Bush administration, Cleveland Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich on Tuesday introduced three articles of impeachment against Vice President Dick Cheney.

Kucinich said Congress should oust Cheney from office for “fabricating a threat of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction” to trick Congress and the public into believing war with Iraq was necessary. He said Cheney also manipulated intelligence to deceive the public about purported links between Saddam Hussein’s Iraq and al-Qaida, the group responsible for the attacks on Sept. 11.

Additionally, Kucinich accused Cheney of threatening aggression against Iran even though Iran has not threatened the United States.

“This goes beyond partisan terms,” Kucinich said. “This becomes a question of who we are as a people.”
