Cheney: Iraq war going "remarkably well"!
Replying to a question on a radio talk show Vice President Dick Cheney said he believes the war in Iraq is going "remarkably well."


OPINION from military.com

"No reality from administration"

Vice President Dick Cheney this week delivered his opinion of how the Iraqi government is doing: "If you look at the general overall situation, they're doing remarkably well."

This from the sagacious leader who a year ago declared that the Iraqi insurgents were "in the last throes" of their struggle. Some last throes....

With less than three weeks to Election Day, the polls are grim for Republicans and the Bush administration. Nevertheless, Bush and political spinmeister Karl Rove pronounced themselves as confident that Republicans would maintain control of both houses of Congress as Cheney is that the Iraqi government is doing remarkably well.

Barring an October surprise, and time for that is fleeting, we can only wonder what sort of exotic cheroots our leaders are smoking.

2. I think I finally figured out what they've been building at the VP mansion
You know, all those loud noises and mysterious construction? I think they were building a lightning protection force field for Cheney. Because ANYBODY who lies their sorry ass off the way that asshole does must have great need for such a device.

6. He is lying, delusional, or both.
I am tempted to go with the last explanation.

7. This nation and the world is so fortunate to
have two of our top leaders in power; one who is an alcoholic brain-damaged misfit and the other a heart patient who apparently suffers from lack of blood flow to the brain. (sarcasm, of course)

8. Cheney is a vile being.
I hope he has a agonizing heart attack real soon.

9. And their are many who think he is right.
My God I still hear people say Vietnam was lost because of the anti-war people. One just hate to think we do not seem to have a war won in our age. Most can not even face the fact that we fought Germany with help from others. It makes one slap ones head in madness.
