    No, he told one guy in paticular, "**** you". If I remember right, it was one of the Democrats that called Bush a Nazi, or murderer, or something.

    As usual you don't "remember right".


    AP

    ""According to congressional aides, Leahy said hello to Cheney following the taking of the Senate group photo on the floor of the chamber.

    "Cheney, who is president of the Senate, then ripped into Leahy for the Democratic senator's criticism this week of alleged war profiteering in Iraq by Halliburton, the oil services company that Cheney once ran.

    "During their exchange, Leahy noted that Republicans had accused Democrats of being anti-Catholic because they are opposed to some of President Bush's anti-abortion judges, the aides said.

    "That's when Cheney unloaded with the 'F-bomb,' aides said.

    "I think he was just having a bad day," said a forgiving Leahy

    Read dragondad's post to get a clearer view.

    On Tuesday, Cheney, serving in his role as president of the Senate, appeared in the chamber for a photo session. A chance meeting with Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (Vt.), the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, became an argument about Cheney's ties to Halliburton Co., an international energy services corporation, and President Bush's judicial nominees. The exchange ended when Cheney offered some crass advice.

    "**** yourself," said the man who is a heartbeat from the presidency.

    I did a quick google and pretty much all the reportage says the same thing.

    I knew it had to be some unfounded accusation by Leahy. I wonder if Leahy stll thinks that the IRaq oilfields could have been fixed with a 32-piece socket set from Sears.

    Anyone who didn't see this coming long before the election wasn't paying attention. It's not really a surprise, and is a good move on his part.

    He's the one who claimed to end combat operations in Iraq in 16.

    A Democrat called Bush a nazi? How outrageous!

    Unlike right wingers we have principles.

    We don't praise the coup in Honduras and while at the same time rightly criticizing Iranians for anti-democratic measures.

    We don't support illegal torture and complain about "illegal" aliens.

    We don't defend Bush taking the habeus corpus rights of prisoners away, then get all hysterical with tall tales of "FEMA camps".

    Liberal principles, yeah like the liberal mainstream media - they won't report any legitimate news story that doesn't fit their liberal agenda. Tell us about hypocrisy! This is a little off subject on this thread, but you brought it up. You had better check out the Honduran constitution and get your facts straight. It's not a coup when their political leaders follow the rules of their constitution. Zelaya was in violation of their constitution... and apparently they value theirs more than Washington politicians do ours!

    In typical liberal fashion, you attempt to demonize America by applying the same privileges as law-abiding US citizens deserve to terrorists, prisoners of war, and illegal aliens.

    This is the first time that I've seen a significant complaint about Obama from you liberals. Perhaps, now even you are beginning to get scared.

    On the contrary, many of us see the new administration to be Bush V3 in many ways, and find it humorous that so many on the right are as scared as they are....
