Does Cheney, a New York Times editorial asks, “simply feel free to cut the ground out from under Mr. Bush?”
Why not? In 2000, after heading the search for a running mate, Cheney looked in the mirror and picked himself.
They lost the popular vote (and who knows about Florida?), but Cheney came to office with a neo-con blueprint for policing the world and used the President as his hand puppet to lie our way into Iraq.
After all that, why would he start worrying now about Bush or public opinion or whether Scooter Libby goes to jail for doing his dirty work?
Mr. President, if you ever decide to change course in Iraq, don’t go duck-hunting with that man!
