Saying 'Cheney has no shame' is an understatement here.

US Veep Dick Cheney's remarks today at a campaign stop in Iowa show how low the Republicans are prepared to go in order to defeat John Kerry's presidential bid:

We made decisions at the end of World War II, at the beginning of the Cold War, when we set up the Department of Defense, and the CIA, and we created the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and undertook a bunch of major policy steps that then were in place for the next 40 years, that were key to our ultimate success in the Cold War, that were supported by Democrat and Republican alike -- Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower and Jack Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon and Gerry Ford and a whole bunch of Presidents, from both parties, supported those policies over a long period of time. We're now at that point where we're making that kind of decision for the next 30 or 40 years, and it's absolutely essential that eight weeks from today, on November 2nd, we make the right choice. Because if we make the wrong choice, then the danger is that we'll get hit [by terrorists] again. That we'll be hit in a way that will be devastating from the standpoint of the United States, and that we'll fall back into the pre-9/11 mind set if you will, that in fact these terrorist attacks are just criminal acts, and that we're not really at war. I think that would be a terrible mistake for us. [emphasis added]

So a vote for Kerry is a vote for terror. How subtle.

Cheney makes me sick. Not just this, but also his refusal to discuss his shady relationship with Halliburton. This site is seeking to do something about it.

This election is making me sick - I mean, Bush is running on his screw-ups and selling them as his accomplishments.

"I helped after 9-11."
--yeah, after you ignored Intellegence that you were being handed and took a month long vacation

"I have toppled Saddam Hussein!"
-- who wasn't a clear and present danger to the United States of America. You also did it through misleading the world and on false pretense.

"Americans are safer..."
--by making Iraq a breeding ground for terrorists and for fighting a lackluster effort in Afghanistan and not caputring Osama Bin Laden?

Give me an F'n break. Kerry will "lead to another Terrorist attack" but Bush/Cheney's lapse should be overlooked? Forget that.

Don't be so surprised, afterall Cheney is no longer human.
