Leggett: Responsibility yours, Cheney; stand up and take it

By Mike Leggett
AMERICAN-STATESMAN STAFF
Tuesday, February 14, 2006

Be a man. You shot a guy.

That would be my unsolicited advice for Vice President Dick Cheney.

You shot a guy. At least stay in town until he's out of the hospital.

You shot a guy. Don't blame the sun or the wind or the rotation of the Earth. And for goodness' sake, don't blame Harry Whittington........

1. Glad to see someone stating the "he was behind you" TRUTH.
so many reports now saying he was in the line of fire.

6. This is from the sports section, too. From the 'outdoors writer'.
They're disgusted here in Texas, I don't care what some people try to spin. Their base is revolted by this. Not the cultists, of course, but those with at least a bit of sense left see the truth.

22. Interesting how this is playing out.
Those who fear their guns will be taken away by us scary liberals have a vested interest in holding the shooter responsible (remember "guns don't kill people, people do"?) for safety, so that the right to have guns is not restricted. They can't give Cheney a pass now. It's good to see responsible gun owners speaking out.

8. A-freakin'-men!
As a lifelong hunter, I have been absolutely fuming at them blaming the victim- the only one at fault is the one who didn't exercise propoer caution when using a deadly weapon! :grr:

an accidental shooting.Blame the victim.

20. They endorsed Junior and Darth in the last two elections.
They've got an awfully long way to go to ever get me back, but this doesn't hurt.

15. Undeniably good advice
Of course, this administration won't take it.

They never admit mistakes. They lie and try to cover them up because their base consists not of voters but of cretinous, glassy eyed, freaks who want to believe that their leaders are created by Gawd and perfect in every respect.

16. Right ON!
I've been around guns and hunters all of my life and every damn one of them is saying just this.

Preach it, Mr. Leggett!

21. I'm looking forward to what is said tomorrow.
They didn't know about the victim's heart attack then. It should be even more interesting tomorrow. I read (scan, mostly) every major paper in TX, but the article here by the outdoor writer at the Statesman carried the most weight, imo. He knows his subject and is outraged at Darth's conduct.

24. Not bad from a site that advertises "Cheney in '08" swag.
The problem is Old Deadeye knows nothing about standing up and being a man about things. He's a punk and a snake.
