    Cheney's afraid he's going to prison, and is trying to divert attention from his lawbreaking by feeding into the Rush and Hannity fear-mongering about Obama.

    Again, its not about the average citizen but protecting big business. Obama's bailout keeps the real estate market calm, Wall Street happy, and the banks rewarded and paid off. This guys for change? Yeah, more change in big business' pockets. What a farce! The blind liberals should open their eyes! They just bought that fancy wrapped EMPTY box from Lets Make a Deal!

    I don't think that what Dick Cheney says can be taken seriously – I mean,who takes a War Criminal seriously.
