  • A joke.

    Dick Cheney is a joke. People are so blind that is so hilarious to see. I wonder what he did to stay in office as VP? He was such a criminal and is guilty of so many crimes that haven't been discovered yet that it is comical. You have all of these simple rednecks and drugged right wingers defending him and calling him a great person. Hmm, I didn't know they smoke the same stuff as Cheney. But he is out of office so we won't have to worry what stupid things he is doing to screw us over. We had enough of that the past eight years. Thank you.moreless
  • This man really knows what he is doing, and the words against him are of people who obviously not followed his career or people who don't know anything about politics.

    Dick Cheney worked under a few different administrations, so he knows what he is doing, and it makes me mad that people only right insults, because they can't attack his record, only thing they can make fun of is his hunting trip and he only shot a lawyer, I would say that would make some people happy. It sad that liberals just get caught up insults and don't take the time to find out the truth about the man. He has served the public for over 30 years I believe it is, and I think it's mostly if not all elected positions so he is doing something right. I would say to look up his record instead of believing mindless propaganda, some of which is slanderous. He is and has beebn a good man in politics, even though people try to portay a different story including some of our less trustworthy media outlets. I jsut say check for your self and think for yourself to see weather you like him or not, don't just take the work of peoples biased propaganda.moreless
