Cheney's Legacy of Deception

The Worst Vice President (actually President) EVER
Cheney, pulling the strings behind the idiot Bush, has brought our nation to its knees, ripping apart our Constitution and changing it to his own design, and is now defending his nefarious actions of the last eight years.

EXCERPT: In the end, the shame of Vice President Dick Cheney was total: unmitigated by any notion of a graceful departure, let alone the slightest obligation of honest accounting. Although firmly ensconced, even in the popular imagination, as an example of evil incarnate--nearly a quarter of those polled in this week's CNN poll rated him the worst vice president in U.S. history, and 41 percent as "poor"--Cheney exudes the confidence of one fully convinced that he will get away with it all.

. . .With Biden occupying Cheney's old office and presumably his secret bunkers as well, maybe we will, at last, learn a bit more of the nefarious truth about the man. One place to start is with the statement of retired U.S. Army Col. Larry Wilkerson, who was Colin Powell's chief of staff and who stated unequivocally that Cheney was the primary author of the torture policy: "There's no question in my mind where the philosophical guidance and the flexibility in order to do so originated--in the vice president of the United States' office."
