Cheney on Meet The Press
Edited on Sun Sep-14-03 08:25 AM by liberalnurse
May I be so bold as to make a diagnosis.....He is a pathological LIAR. Oh my God.....Only bind and elderly church ladies would even think he was speaking like the VP of this country.

He speaks with almost a secret-sharing style whisper...Like to a buddy... Tim, I'll tell ya whats going down....Then he LIES.......

Tim politely asks the right questions but never disputes or challenges him!

Too much malarkey to post...transcript will have to be pulled later.

Still focusing on reason of invading Iraq; WMD's but he kept his head down when he spoke...

Said he did not have a clue regarding the departure of Arabs and Bin Ladin family member 24 hours post 9-11.....The man said that there were quite a various diplomats and such that had to depart....something on that affect....

1. did he ask about Prince Bandar?
I emailed MTP asking Russert to ask for details about the prince's mysterious meeting last month with Cheney and another one with Poppy up in Maine.

The spokesmen declined to comment at the time, but MTP is the place where our leaders are put on the spot, right? Where they have to face the nation, so to speak.

6. About the Saudis Flying Out during No Fly 9-12
This story has been KNOWN since back then. G.E. RUSSERT fed him the story with the line that the leaving had been approved by "high administration officials," and asked CHEENEE if he knew. CHEENEE had the shamelessness to say, "I did not." He accompanied this with the KNOWN facial tics for LYING, eyes cast down, and to the left.

He's now saying he has no ties to Halliburton "for over 3 years", doesn't know why there is a no-bid policy for the contracts, and on and on.

About the Saudis cooperating, he LITERALLY sounded like NIXON when CHEENEE said, "They are being VERY GOOD PARTNERS."

29. And of course no follow-up question from Tiny Tim
No amazed look, "You have no knowledge of the Saudis flight?" Tim is sticking to the list of approved questions.

2. This was my favorite......

Russert: (paraphrasing) Were you involved in any way with the awarding of no-bid contracts to Halliburton?

Cheney: " Of course not Tim" :puke:

What a lying sack of shit.

3. This may come as a shock to you but...
most white males that speak in the same authoritarian manner come across just as phony. I believe the American Indians referred to it as "speaking with a forked tongue."

25. Yeah, you have to wonder about that poll
Since Iraq has no working country-wide communication infrastructure in place and their power is spotty at best, you have to wonder how they came up with their "representative sample".

Plenty of contracts in Iraq.


And Darth Rums claimed on the day he was protested that because of our Iraq-attack there are now "100 newspapers" operating, just gushing with free speech------and none of our CRACK reporters in the audience questioned the reality of this.

28. well he did not refer to the Zogby poll then
That came out this week after extensive polling in Iraq. The conclusion is they overwhelming DO NOT want the US there! I will see if I can find the link.

43. Who did the poll? - THE AMERICAN ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE
It's called manufacturing information that supports your position and they had people on this week pushing this "poll." One of the questions asked was something like "After which country, would you like to have your government modeled?" The options were

US
Syria
Egypt
and two other governments with dismal track records
other

Oh gee, let me think.

Votes for the US were under 30%. And who the hell are they polling? Do they have telephones in the Baghdad slums? Did they go door to door? Throughout the whole country? With security? Why can't they have any government they want?

Where was Canada on the list? Was it an option?

41. He Said He "Questions" the Intell People CONSTANTLY
Yet the phony Iraq attack was based on faked intel, and he doesn't know the thing DU-ers have been talking about forever----the Saudis flying out after 9-11.

So. About his "questioning" visits to CIA ------no, he sez, his QUESTIONS were not supposed to INTIMIDATE the intels into sexing-up the data. Or rather he said he doesn't KNOW of data that was CHANGED from BEFORE his QUESTONS to AFTER the questions.

He said he QUESTIONS all the time. Just QUESTIONS and QUESTIONS. Cough.

Thank goodness for transcripts......Maybe one or two of our fine dem candidates will use his words against him.. Somethings got to expose him...He is a monster.

It's the only person he interviews with and I remember reading somewhere that Russert is his neighbor. No risk of confrontation there! I can see all of these lunatics sitting around with their martinis drunkenly plotting the overthrow of the world.

No follow-up questions at all...I'm going to be ill after watching this. Russert helped to elect Smirk in 2000 and he's determined to do it again in 2004. Shameful.

We are in the clutches of "Smirk" and "Sneer"

I'm getting tired of "9-11 changed everything." They've used this as an excuse to go after oil pipelines and oil fields and to enrich their corporate friends and the defence industry.

27. Cheney is GOOOOD!!!
Damn that guy is good! Cheney is as good a liar as I have ever seen. Cheney ranks with the very best liars of all time. He's every bit as good a liar as Richard Nixon.

This guy is DAMN GOOD. He is so serious and so sincere. Russert asked all the right questions and Cheney didn't miss ONE beat in lying in each and every answer. He had the pat answer and was so convincingly sincere with each and every answer.

Cheney ranks with the very BEST LIARS in U.S. history. He is at the top.

Damn he's good.

31. Yeah notice how slick
the "WMD" is now a "WMD Program." They've gotten away with changing the reason for the invasion from having stockpiles of weapons to having programs for building weapons.

Hell, all Cheney had to do was read DU to find out what all the hot issues are and what people are saying. Russert asked all the right questions. Cheney was well prepared.

32. No one around to challenge the LIAR!
Lie after lie..without a single challenge to supply evidence..... this is such an outrage....but, of course, Rummy is on CBS with the same script.

Best NEW phrase so far: "...democratically APPOINTED governing councils in most cities...." Huh? Say what? Not a peep out of Timid Russert.

33. I couldn't stand to watch so thanks for all your posts.
I can only hope that one little comedian, Al Franken, will be able to break through the BS, when he is on MTP in October. Maybe he can shame Tim, who likes Al, a bit. The media has completely abrogated its responsibility. We lost so much when Katharine Graham died.

36. I don't think Cheney is lying
I think he actually believes this stuff. He's a true fanatic. Even when confronted with evidence to the contrary he continues with his original pack of lies. He (and the rest of his psychopathic admin.) are going to ride this baby right into the ground. And we're all going to be sitting right next to him.

6,000 U.S. casualties so far. Nobody even knows how many Iraqis.

37. No evidence that they had nukes????
Now, Cheney is saying he misspoke!? They glossed over that one pretty quick. As if it were some dust on an end table. The queston and answer couldn't have taken more then 20 seconds. So, now we know that Cheney misspoke when he said the Iraqis were reconstituting their nuclear program.

Gee, thanks for clearing that up, Dick. Pack your bags, you're outta there.

I switched back and forth. I'm not supporting Dean as my main candidate, but his segment was terrrific. I think watching any Dem candidate is a breath of fresh air compared to the foulness of watching Cheney grimace and stench the atmosphere with more lies.

After watching Cheney lying for a half an hour, I couldn't take it any more. My stomach started to get queasy. After Dean's interview, I switched to another channel, and there was Rummy. AAACCCCKKKKK! So I switched back to This Week.

Not a single question about the lawsuits against Cheney!

Russert has Cheney for a whole hour and he cannot manage to ask the vice president one damn question about the lawsuits or The Energy Task Force documents?

I guess I should not be suprised... Russert, who is fast becoming the Larry King of political interviewers, let Cheney ramble on and on so as to eat up all the time that could have been spent asking tough questions.

Another insipid interview by Russert.

:puke:

47. Yes! The Larry King thing
As I was watching it, that thought came to mind! In fact, when he asked Cheney about the reconsituting of nukes statement Cheney made months ago, I think he even said "You misspoke" - feeding him the answer. Or am I not remembering it correctly. I'll get the chance to verify it since Russert is reaired next Saturday. He either fed it to him or he repeated it after Cheney answered and nodded as he reiterated the statement. Russert must have some severe knee burns after this one.

I saw about 30 seconds this morning, then just switched off the TV. I was getting ready to have breakfast and figured I just couldn't do both - watch Cheney and eat. Yuck!!

You're right. He leans over when he talks, till he's almost horizontal to the table. You can't even see his entire face. WTF is going on with him? And his voice. Gives me the creeps. A criminal mind if there ever was one. :scared:
