New Cheney Memoir Reveals He's Going To Live Full, Satisfied Life Without Ever Feeling Remorse ...
And There's Nothing We Can Do About It

The publication this week of Dick Cheneys memoir, In My Time, has revealed the former vice president enjoys a fulfilling life unaffected by any sense of guilt or regret and theres absolutely nothing any of us can do about it. This unique look at an otherwise intensely private mans inner thoughts shows us he couldnt be prouder of his lifes work and will never feel one single moment of anguish over his actions no matter how desperately we want him to, book critic James L. Warner writes of the 576-page memoirs disclosure that Cheney would spend his retirement never second-guessing his advocacy of a disastrous war, the torture of detainees, illegal wiretapping, or tax cuts that created devastating budget deficits and crippled the U.S. economy. Nothing we do will ever change the fact that this man sleeps very soundly at night and, in fact, looks back fondly upon a long, rewarding career. You almost have to admire that. The book also reveals that none of the former vice presidents five heart attacks has caused him even the slightest amount of pain.

4. He suffers from the disease that all serial murderers and torturers
Edited on Thu Sep-01-11 01:45 PM by sabrina 1
suffer from. I don't recall any of them ever admitting to their crimes. The very fact that he has no remorse simply confirms the frightening fact that a completely insane man was operating the levers of power in this country.

Everything he does he does, the lack of self-reflection, the assurance that he and only he was right, all of this simply adds to the huge body of evidence already available proving his insanity, his lack of empathy, his inability to relate to those whose lives he destroyed. All of it and now this book intended to convince the rest of us of his 'rightness', are additional proof of the threat he was and may still be to this country and others.

I do not agree with the author of the article that he is living a full, satisfied life though. I agree with Col. Wilkerson that he is terrified of being prosecuted for war crimes and that is one of the reasons he wrote the book. Because in his sick mind, he thought he could justify his crimes.

And there is no way I would agree that we should admire his lack of remorse. We should pass new laws that require that anyone getting that close to such immense power in this country should be checked for mental stability first. At least make something good come of all of this. 'Cheney's Law' we could call it so he is forever remembered as the delusional, insane, dangerous person he is.
