Cheney warned us
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 08:49 AM by Rose Siding
The attacks came in searing remarks from, among others, Ken Mehlman, the chairman of the Republican National Committee and Vice President Dick Cheney, who went so far as to suggest that the ouster of Mr. Lieberman might encourage al Qaeda types.

Its an unfortunate development, I think, from the standpoint of the Democratic Party, to see a man like Lieberman pushed aside because of his willingness to support an aggressive posture in terms of our national security strategy, Mr. Cheney said in a telephone interview with news service reporters.....

He cast Mr. Liebermans loss in ominous terms, suggesting that it would hearten American terrorist enemies. Terrorists, he said, are betting on the proposition that ultimately they can break the will of the American people in terms of our ability to stay in the fight and complete the task.

2. good find. Hadn't heard that quote. But it does seem they always do
tell us what they are about to do. They just don't put their name on it.

3. Just how close is Mr Cheney
To those Al quaeda types anyways? Almost sounds like he is giving an ultimatum. Vote for Lieberman or else something bad is going to happen.

5. Democracy at work, dick head
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 08:48 AM by cdb
Real Democracies can actually elect the people they choose...get used to it. Thats why some democracies elect t
"terrorists" as leaders. And thats why real democracies can elect anti-war candiddates.

7. I thought the things
that the repug leaders were saying connecting the Lamont victory and terrorism were outlandish-even for them. Now it makes sense. They knew this story was about to break, and they took full slimy advantage of it.

22. Cheney: "We would rather be feared than loved"
Has never been right about anything so why would anyone think he is right now. :shrug:
