    This isn't a matter of whoever has the most vocal support is the side that's correct. If that were the case I dare say there are millions who support Osama Bin Laden for a host of reasons and ardently defend his "enhanced" terrorism tactics as justified and successful. Still doesn't make it right or acceptable.

  2. hmmm....

    so Cheney went out of his way to keep everything a secret while he was in the White House but now that he's out and that he could possibly be prosecuted for war crimes he decides to start talking? Shocking... This is just another pathetic example showing how spineless the Bush Administration still remains.

    Dick is like a criminal observing the crime scene investigation and keeping close tabs on the police, cliping newspaper articles and making a scrapbook. He's trying to stay one step ahead of the investigators. But he's only making himself more obvious. Keep talking Lizzy.

    She is a joke like her father. HEY where is his lesbian daughter, doesnt she want to defend him too??? Or is this loud mouth the lesbian? Look cheney should be in gitmo along with rove and maybe bush, but it would appear at this point all the rumors were true, DICK was pulling the strings on the puppet bush, and now bush has no puppet master so hes not talking and dick wont shut up...Too bad he has NO puppet

    Funny how no one can counter her facts....Do you use facts, or just personal attacks?? Maybe, you prefer a govt. to lead via feelings, vs facts. You're all just so smart and classy. 🙂

    She's a she demon. Why did she have access ( as she claims) to documents pertaing to policy. Because shes Darth's daughter? I find her pompous, shrill and a liar. Simple as that. Of course Cheneys numbers have gone up as there are still plenty of GOP morons on the loose that want to destroy this country and its freedoms. Just read the comments buy the Rethug trolls that are posted here.

    Liz Cheney is a very well-spoken and knowledgable person. I am glad that she is coming forward. More intelligent people in the know must come forward. To try to not allow people to speak against our governmnet right or wrong is a certain way to lose our freedom. Andersen should listen more.

    Bush-Cheyney policies were rejected by the electorate in November. They had their chance. Let's move on. Liz's arguments are false and contradictory. Obama doesn't want to prosecute Bushies but if the Repubs keep up this selfish defense, he may have no other choice and then, I doubt Cheyney will come out smelling like a rose.

    Of course Liz is going to side with her Husband. Michelle, needs to surface and shut her up real quick!! My advice to the Cheneys, is they need to shut the hell up and follow the Bush's suit!! They have jacked up our economy with that Iraq war and high azz gas prices, that should have never happened. They need to go somewhere and hide!!

    They have no shame or morals but they suppose to be the party of that!!

    Liz Cheney represents all that is wrong with humanity – bigotry, racism, hatred, virulence, xenophobia, and a willingness to villainize those who disagree with her distorted version of reality.

    Liz, you are nothing but scum and pure human garbage. And if you don't believe that water boarding is torture, then volunteer to be water boarded like your friend Sean Hannity, but actually follow through. I would pay good money to see you change your mind, you bloated windbag.

    Dear asianfilmreviews,

    Nothing exhibits the horrid qualities you posted more than your post itself. Look in the mirror if you want to see a hateful and ignorant individual.

    Dick Cheney said it best when he said that terrorists would take advantage of a divided America, one that is distracted with in-fighting. He said this as he continues to divide, distract, instill fear, and call down the elected President in front of the enemy.

    @ truth hurts–I can only imagine the kind of language your Michelle would use to denigrate any republican judging from some of the speeches and hatred she spewed before Obama was elected.

    Anyone that opposes President Obama is wrong and non American, but when Bush was in office, it was an American right to oppose the president.

    Uggghhhh. There is so much liberal hate it is making me sick.
