Dick Cheney Undergoes Heart Transplant

March 24, 2012

There was breaking news today that Dick Cheney underwent heart transplant surgery and in recovery.  While this innovative procedure usually extends the lives of compatible patients, whether or not that heart accepts you can mean the difference between dying quickly or living another 10 years. It’s well-known that the former Vice President has serious heart [...]

Poll: Oil Spill Becoming Obama’s Katrina

June 7, 2010

I want to stay consistent on this point:  Obama did not cause the oil spill, it was Dick Cheney using Halliburton’s Oil Spill Machine that did it — duh! (you have to say “duh” in this case with that ditsy and annoying upward inflection) That being said, when you’re President you get praise when things [...]

The BP Oil Spill was Not Bush’s Fault

May 26, 2010

Yesterday, the soon-to-be former Senator Chris Dodd from Connecticut (phew!), finally blamed the BP Gulf oil spill on George W. Bush.  Check the video at about 1:20 or so for the good stuff. Honestly, I was beginning to wonder what was taking them so long! But, truth be told, Dodd’s all wrong:  Bush has a [...]

Cheney to Support Hutchinson Against Perry?

October 28, 2009

This one baffles me.  Former Vice-President Dick Cheney is backing Kay Bailey Hutchison over Conservative Rick Perry in the race for Governor of the State of Texas.  Now, I won’t go so far as to call Hutchison a RINO.  She is a moderate conservative in my view, and nowhere near the RINO status of a [...]

Former CIA Chiefs to Obama: Cut It Out!

September 19, 2009

Adding another piece of evidence that the Obama Administration is at worst dangerous and at best inept, a letter was circulated yesterday from seven of America’s former CIA chiefs imploring the Obama Administration to end their incessant investigations into that agency for the following reasons:  the issues at hand have already been thoroughly investigated;  reopening these kinds [...]

Cheney Shines on FNS

August 30, 2009

Here’s a clip of Dick Cheney on “Fox News Sunday” this morning with the increasingly Wolf Blitzer-like Chris Wallace: Notice how Wallace dogs Cheney about the contents of his book and how Cheney gives nothing away — Cheney lets him know who was running that interview, which is good because Wallace is a terrible at [...]

2010 Optimism Unclear

July 15, 2009

It’s early, but our government is staunchly liberal and the public’s patience is wearing thin with the Democrat’s bald-faced tax-and-spend impulse.  Being intellectually honest with myself, I have to ask:  is the conservative optimism out there simply an emotional response against a dangerous government’s increasingly unpopular policies or is there evidence, both historical and otherwise substantive, that [...]

Bush Defends Himself

June 18, 2009

Yesterday, Dubya showed up to speak with business folks in Erie, PA, and defended himself on EITs (enhanced interrogation techniques) and his general policy in the War on Terror… um, sorry, that’s Overseas Contingency Operations (gag!).  Despite the headlines Bush indicated that he wasn’t going to criticize Obama, although he did get in a few jabs on those [...]

New Poll: Cheney More Popular than Pelosi!

June 5, 2009

OK, it’s a USA Today/Gallup poll of about 1000 “adults”, which under normal circumstances is about as accurate as a show of hands at a hoppin’ dance club around 1 am, but nonetheless Dick Cheney ended up with a higher favorability rating than San Fran Nancy Pelosi, 37-34% respectively! For goodness sake, Darth Cheney is [...]

I Heart Cheney

May 22, 2009

I’ve liked Dick Cheney since the summer of 2000.  He was going to be a steady hand at Veep, had no ambition to be the top dog, so he decided to shoot from the hip and be the Administration’s authoritative voice on security issues.  He beat the heck out of Joe Lieberman in the 2000 [...]

Cheney Strikes Back!

March 15, 2009

On CNN’s “State of the Union” show this morning, former Veep Dick Cheney had a few things to say about the Obama Nation: Obama is trying to use the economic crisis to justify the largest expansion of government control in the Republic’s history. That focusing on government control of health care as that which will [...]

Joe, You Gaffe-tastic Rube!

January 22, 2009

Here’s Joe Biden today at the swearing-in of the new White House staff, making a crack at Chief Justice Roberts’ gaffe at the Inauguration.  However, Big Barry O was NOT happy as Joe made his own gaffe!  Watch: Remember this one?  “STAND UP ,CHUCK!”  Umm… wheelchair-bound Chuck Graham might have a problem with that, Joe. If [...]

Where O Where will Dick Cheney Be?

August 5, 2008

Word is buzzing that Dick Cheney may not be invited to speak at the Republican National Convention.  A sitting two-term Vice President has never been snubbed by the incumbent party’s convention that I can think of in modern times.  I know that if Cheney doesn’t go it’ll be spun as his “choice” to help McCain, but [...]

Is Bush Batman?

July 28, 2008

Apparently, a number of op-ed articles have hit the Internet regarding Christopher Nolan’s new film, the box-office shattering The Dark Knight, and how Batman allegorically plays the role of George W. Bush (some say Batman is Dick Cheney or a generic conservative hero)!  A friend tipped me off to this concept last night and I [...]

Obama Would Win Europe

March 8, 2008

…And that’s one reason why I hope he’ll lose in America! I was thumbing through my usual cites for something to post this morning when this piece posted on RCP emerged and struck a very dissonant chord with me. Guy Sorman’s “Europe Loves Obama” piece was hard to read since I wasn’t too sure if he was being tongue-in-cheek [...]
