I think Cheney very easily manipulated Bush, but that Bush was a willing tool.

2. I believe Cheney was the shadow pRresident from the outset.
Edited on Wed Dec-17-08 11:38 AM by Uncle Joe
He was the money power guy, Bush was just a name and resided in a large state.

The whole B.S. about Cheney searching the nation over for Bush's Vice-Presidential running mate only to have Bush choose him was just a sham.

I believe Cheney and his corporate masters knew he could never win the Presidency on his own run, so they decided on a stealth run by convincing a light weight to run on the condition, Cheney would be the Vice-pResident while calling the shots from the shadows.

The corporate media covered Bush's backside by camouflaging his obvious shortcomings, lies and mistakes, throughout the campaign.

5. None of the above?
It's pretty clear that the pharmaceutical companies have been running the FDA, the coal companies have been running MSHA, ADM the USDA, Goldman Sachs has been running Treasury, and so on, and so on, and so on.

10. People deep in the shadows always have and always will run it.
Those in the front are window dressing. Every 4 or 8 years the herd rejoices
a new beginning and the learn to hate process begins anew.

13. Neither - they just were the tools - political hirelings who served the Monsters.
The Monsters, of course, are the non-human machines which we call corporations. The Financial Machines ran Treasury, the Murder Machines ran the Defense Department, the Land Raping Machines ran Interior, The Oil Machines ran Energy ....
