Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Quotes of the day, Cheney edition

Excerpts from an interview with FNC’s Chris Wallace over the weekend.  The first one:

WALLACE: Did you really tell Senator Leahy, bleep yourself?

CHENEY: I did.

WALLACE: Any qualms or second thoughts or embarrassment?

CHENEY: No, I thought he merited it at the time. And we’ve since, I think, patched over that wound and we’re civil to one another now.

While I do not condone vulgarity, I do not disagree that Leaky Leahy needed to be brought down a notch.  Whether or not an invitation to self-fornicate was the best approach, though…

Anywho, here’s the next one:

WALLACE: During the vice presidential debate in October, Joe Biden was asked about your interpretation of the powers of your office as vice president, and here’s what he said.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BIDEN: Vice President Cheney’s been the most dangerous vice president we’ve had probably in American history.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

WALLACE: Transition officials say that Biden plans to shrink his office, that he is not going to meet with Senate Democrats the way you did every week with Senate Republicans, that he is not going to have his own, quote, “shadow government” in the White House.

Biden has said that he believes you have dangerously expansive views of executive power.

CHENEY: Well, I just fundamentally disagree with him. He also said that the — all the powers and responsibilities of the executive branch are laid out in Article 1 of the Constitution. Well, they’re not. Article 1 of the Constitution is the one on the legislative branch.

Joe’s been chairman of the Judiciary Committee, a member of the Judiciary Committee in the Senate, for 36 years, teaches constitutional law back in Delaware, and can’t keep straight which article of the Constitution provides for the legislature and which provides for the executive.

So I think — I write that off as campaign rhetoric. I don’t take it seriously. And if he wants to diminish the office of vice president, that’s obviously his call.

I think that President-elect Obama will decide what he wants in a vice president. And apparently, from the way they’re talking about it, he does not expect him to have as consequential a role as I’ve had during my time.

Ouch!

I’m gonna miss Cheney.  The man has a unique talent of making leftist heads spontaneously explode!

Can this Plame b#tch finally go away now?

Plame’s bovine feces lawsuit against Darth Cheney and his Bu$hitler McRummyburton minions in the administration (a little moonbat-ese for our leftist visitors to feel right at home for the duration of this post) was tossed.  It seems that sharing the name of a non-covert agent whose husband had already put her name and identity out there for the whole world to see isn’t a crime…go figure.

Merry Fitzmas, moonbats!  😆

Cheney destroying wildlife

No, not with his big #ss “carbon footprint”, but by a more diabolical and brutal method! Does this man’s savagery know no end? From Chicago (Da Bears):

A bird appears to have flown into and damaged the engine of Vice President Dick Cheney’s plane as it arrived in Chicago Friday morning.

As of 10:30 a.m., mechanics were inspecting the plane to see if repairs are necessary and if the plane can return to Washington. The plane landed safely, and no one was hurt.

“No one was hurt”?? What about that poor, helpless bird? Sucked into Cheney’s carbon polluter and chopped into bits, and “no one was hurt”?? Someone call PETA, and pronto! If PETA’s not too busy killing animals themselves, they can take care of this b#stard post haste!

For those of you on the left, the prior paragraph was sarcasm. By the way, how long will it be before the moonbats lament that the plane didn’t crash and burn Cheney to a crispy nub (like they lamented the failed assassination attempt in Afghanistan)?

NY Times laments "Cheney secrecy"…the day after assassination attempt

D’oh! From the Old Gray Hag:

Mr. Cheney’s trip to Pakistan was shrouded in unusual secrecy. In trips to Pakistan last year, President Bush and Secretary State Condoleezza Rice announced their plans days in advance, and reporters filed articles on their visits as soon as they landed. But Mr. Cheney’s traveling press pool was sworn to secrecy, and allowed to report only the barest details just before he left.

American officials did not explain the extraordinary secrecy surrounding Mr. Cheney’s visit to Pakistan, a country the administration has cast as a stable nation moving gradually toward democracy. Mr. Cheney’s aides told The Times and other news organizations that the Secret Service had imposed the requirement that there be no mention of his trip until he had left Pakistan.

Now WHY would Cheney need to be so hush-hush and keep his visits on the down-low? It’s not like Islamic terrorists have tried to kill him or anything!

Oh, wait…yeah, they did. The day before this article hit the stands. Oops.

Nicely done, NYT. When you’re not busy blabbing national security details and classified material all over your front pages, you’re lamenting that the Veep doesn’t make himself a bigger target to the bloodthirsty camelhumper world. Are you that hard-up for writing material these days?

UPDATE: Taliban assassination attempt on Cheney

UPDATES AT BOTTOM OF THIS POST.

The left’s bogeyman (VP Cheney) was almost done in by a bloodthirsty camelhumper from the “religion of peace” last night. Neal Boortz has great commentary:

The Taliban tried to blow up Dick Cheney today during a visit to a U.S. Military base in Afghanistan. Depending on whom you ask, either 3 or 24 people were killed by the suicide bomber. The war on Islamic terrorism continues. Cheney is in the region to meet with he president of Pakistan…and tell him to crack down a bit harder on terrorists.

Cheney is on the warpath lately…and it’s quite refreshing. He’s been taking on the media and the Democrats and not holding back. He rightly called out Nancy Pelosi for her policies, which support Al-Qaeda’s agenda. When a controversy ensued…he didn’t hold back. He’s been taking on the media, appearing on TV shows…complete unapologetic for the war in Iraq. The question remains: where has the administration been for the last two years?

Instead of letting the Left and the mainstream media define Iraq as a failure, which its not, they should have been out there swinging the bat…calling out Democrats for their pro-appeasement policies. But, as the saying goes, better late than never. Besides, it’s not like Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid are ever going to come up with a better plan for Iraq anyway.

I imagine that had Cheney gotten killed, the Kostards and DU dumb#sses (you know, the “compassionate” and “tolerant” left?) would have been giddier than a blind lesbian at a seafood market.

UPDATE (2/27/07 – 11:55 A.M.): Boy, I didn’t go out on a limb with my predictions of the moonbats getting disappointed, did I? The HuffPosties, Kostards, and DUmbasses all publicly display their vile elements who lament the Taliban failure, for the world to see. The HuffPost admins have closed commenting down. Michelle Malkin has the screen caps, though.

That’s your House Speaker

Some of you may have seen this late last week, so my apologies for weighing in on it now. The VP had a slight problem with the Murtha-Pelosi “cut and run…er, redeploy 5000 miles away from the war zone…or the money’s gone” plan, and replied to their idea thusly:

“I think if we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Murtha are suggesting, all we will do is validate the al-Qaida strategy,” the vice president told ABC News. “The al-Qaida strategy is to break the will of the American people … try to persuade us to throw in the towel and come home, and then they win because we quit.”

In other words, Al Qaeda’s stated strategy has been to break the will of the American public, and the Pelosi-Murtha plan would, in his opinion, achieve that goal (perhaps, or not, unwittingly).

So how did the nation’s first female Speaker respond? Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Pelosi, at a news conference in San Francisco, said Cheney’s criticism of Democrats was “beneath the dignity of the debate we’re engaged in and a disservice to our men and women in uniform, whom we all support.”

“And you know what I’m going to do? I’m going to call the president and tell him I disapprove of what the vice president said,” Pelosi said. “It has no place in our debate.”

Nothing says “I’m a serious leader and I demand respect!” quite like whining like a bitch and running to go tattle-tale on the mean ol’ Veep.

As Reverse Vampyr observes:

Typical liberalism.

  • Claim to support the troops.
  • Attempt to insure America’s (and therefore, Bush’s) defeat.
  • Shame any opposition into silence.
  • Act insulted that their patriotism might be in question.

    The only thing she forgot to do was claim that Murtha’s defeatist plan was “for the children.”
  • The VP may not have questioned her patriotism, but I damned sure do.


    The Jackass Party, drunk with their new power, is weary of publicly supporting Murtha’s plan
