    I don't know-you'd have to ask say Scalia. I suspect that the facts are such that they could not readily be applied to another case. But I don't know. But its not really relevant to what I said

    He wasn't the monster people made him out to be. It's disturbing that so many people wish for his death.

    Former Dick Cheney, de Facto President of the GWB administration, was far more than mere controversial. GWB was a neophyte regarding Politics when a partisan USSC appointed him, the most unqualifed candidate to be president of the US. W was content to be president in name only while others did the work for him. This was the worse thing he could have done with a psychopath like Cheney. Dick Cheney went to Iraq for profiteering for "his" company, Halliburton, Control of Iraqi oil contracts, and to clean up the middle east (get rid of Saddam Hussein) for Israel. The latter being the neoconservatives main goal. Cheney does not know how to admit he was wrong and is all over the place blaming President Obama who wisely voted against invading Iraq.

    I do not like Dick Cheney and words fail me in attempting to explain my loathing for this man. He was on the list for a heart transplant, and I am wondering to this day how it was he jumped to the head of the line, before others who needed a heart just as badly, to conveniently get a new lease on life?!

    Really rare to see so many inflammatory falsehoods packed in a single post.

    He was not only not a monster, but was extremely skilled and competent at what he did. Did he make mistakes or have errors in judgment? Of course he did. I defy anybody to name a single human being who has ever lived on Earth who didn't make any mistakes and who didn't have any errors in judgment. But those who hated him the most and probably would have murdered him if they could have gotten away with it could not find a single crime to hang on him. The closest they found was what I still believe was a mean spirited and trumped up charge against Scooter Libby who was on Cheney's staff. And that had nothing to do with Cheney.

    And yes. There is no depth of hatred that surpasses the hatred some on the left have for a conservative who is good at his job.

    Don't forget this thread is about that other guy - Cheney - though it makes little difference. They both, and many others, were complicit in creating an unnecessary war.

    The thing is, the Iraq War was not the result of an intelligence goof — rather, the country’s top office systematically misled the public about Iraq’s nonexistent WMD program, as well as Saddam Hussein’s link to Al Qaeda.

    On Tuesday night, former CIA Deputy Director and Bush’s intelligence briefer Michael Morell appeared on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” where he, under an amount of good cable news duress, admitted that the administration intentionally misrepresented intelligence.

    The show played a clip of Cheney saying, “We know [Saddam Hussein] has been absolutely devoted to trying to acquire nuclear weapons. And we believe he has, in fact, reconstituted nuclear weapons.”

    “Was that true or not,” host Chris Matthews asked.

    “We were saying–”

    “Can you answer that question? Was that true?”

    “No, that was not true,” he finally said.
    ďAnd I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.Ē

    President Obama was not a Senator when our lawmakers voted to invade Iraq. The "wise" vote against the invasion that you believe he made never happened.

    You are correct. I keep reading/hearing he voted against the invasion of Iraq, but he has repeatedly voiced his opinion against the Bush action. Here is an excerpt from the link below:

    "Barack Obama (who went on to win the election) was not a senator at the time of the voting of the Iraq War Resolution, but has repeatedly voiced his disapproval of it both before and during his senatorship, saying at an anti war rally in Chicago on October 2, 2002: 'I am not opposed to all wars. Iím opposed to dumb wars.' "
