WASHINGTON (AP) -- Vice President Dick Cheney says he is "willing to bet" that Democratic lawmakers will back down and approve a war-spending bill that doesn't call for U.S. troops to leave Iraq. A top Democratic leader shot back that Cheney has lost all public credibility.
With President Bush and Congress in a stalemate -- he plans to veto legislation that orders U.S. troops home, which the House and Senate plan to send him -- both sides are looking ahead. In an interview broadcast Sunday, Cheney predicted the Democrats will blink.
He said Congress will end up passing a "clean" bill that funds the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan without any troop withdrawal timetables…
"There may be some people who are so irresponsible that they wouldn't support that," Cheney said.
That's tough talk from a guy who shot his friend in the face while hunting. Never mind that whole thing about committing a nation to war without any plan on how to end it.
That was real responsible.
As for troop withdrawal timetables, gee, I wonder who those irresponsible "some people" might be...
67. Percentage of Americans who believe that Congress should allow funding only with a time limit (58 percent) or block all funding for the war in Iraq (9 percent), according to a new CBS poll.
Yeah, that's right--two out of three Americans.
He's a sociopathic monster and very nearly perfect in his utter stupidity, incompetence, and wrongheadedness.
But, I gotta tell you, it's almost worth having Dick Cheney around. Just for the laughs.
