I am betting we can all come to much better conclusions after we have actually READ the book when it ACTUALLY comes out. But alas, this is just a wild-ass guess on my part.
Why is it that even when confronted with REALITY and the FACTS Liberals cannot contain themselves to spew their vitriol for people whom they disagree with politically.
Now this is not suggesting that Cheney or anyone else who publishes a book always tell the TRUTH, but to sit here and speculate in a vacuum of reality and the book even being published is beyond the pale.
Nothing in that statement would fit my "hyper partisan" opinions. Now you can sleep better.
Ok, this is fair enough.... but then...As I look back on the Bush Presidency, I have begun to see Bush as a victim (for lack of a better word) of really bad advice. IMO, he was mislead and manipulated by early advisors thrust upon him by political cronies.
... comes the ad hom.From day one, he appeared to lack the intellect and critical thinking ability...

IMO, Cheney's overall tone and attitude since leaving office, combined with what we do know about his relationship with Bush, all jive with the author's characterization. I guess apologists will see it as a 'slant'.
Not true at all. And I'm not just saying that because truth detector believes it to be true (which is a sure fire indicator of the contrary) -- but Gore was very much the traditional VP as a promoter of programs, president of the Senate, and #1 in the line of succession. He traveled abroad, spoke out on issues... all very traditional and not pushing the boundaries the way Cheney did.Second, it was Clinton who greatly expanded the role of the VP with Al Gore; Cheney did different things, but his role in the administration was no greater than Gore's. Maybe you should check into things that happened before you started paying attention if you want to comment intelligently.
Even with what little we know about what Cheney actually did behind the scenes, that's still more than Gore ever did in terms a setting policy, framing the message, advising the president.
However, if you want to post some specific examples, your comment might have some validity. Right now, it reads as a failed attempt to deflect and derail the thread.
I wonder who people will blame after Obama is done wrecking the nationís economy and currency; Biden? But alas, they are keeping him away from the public due to his propensity to prove what a dense moron he is.
Or perhaps it will continue to be the Bush/Cheney conspiracy.
