Big Time & His Big Stick

I love Dick Cheney. I love his straightforward, no-holds-barred approach to what he believes is right. He nailed it so well in this interview with Politico.

Vice President Cheney warned in an interview Wednesday that a premature withdrawal from Iraq would invite “further attacks” against the United States and said he has been surprised by the weakness of the Democratic Congress.Most striking were his virtually taunting remarks of two men he described as friends from his own days in the House: Democratic Reps. John Dingell (Mich.) and John P. Murtha (Pa.).

In a 40-minute interview with Politico, he scoffed at the idea of two men who spent years accruing power showing so much deference to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in the big spending and energy debates of the year.

Murtha “and the other senior leaders … march to the tune of Nancy Pelosi to an extent I had not seen, frankly, with any previous speaker,” Cheney said. “I’m trying to think how to say all of this in a gentlemanly fashion, but [in] the Congress I served in, that wouldn’t have happened.”

In other words, they're WUSSES. I know Cheney can't say that, but you KNOW that's what he was thinking. Here's how HE put it:

But his implication was clear: When asked if these men had lost their spines, he responded, “They are not carrying the big sticks I would have expected.”

Okay, well, that works, too. The Botox Biddy seems to have them pretty well in hand...except Murtha went and ticked her off with his declaration that the surge is working. It's the woodpile for you, m'boy...
