BLITZER’S BLOG: Cheney refuses to admit any mistakes as vice president

Los Angeles (CNN) – Former Vice President Dick Cheney refuses to say he made any mistakes at all during his eight years in the Bush administration. He tells me he has no regrets whatsoever.

During our interview, in short, he was vintage Cheney.

    The only mistake Cheney ever made was that one time when he thought he made a mistake ...... Funny how the folks that think they don't make mistakes seem to screw things up so badly for everyone else ha?

    Who cares what this miscreant says, thinks or has written in his book, "In My Mind". History will judge him and his arrogance for what he was and is, perhaps the worst vice-president in US history and one who is largley responsible for the problems that now plague America.

    Dick "The War Criminal" Cheney is in a state of denial.

    Why is it that republicans refuse to accept their deserved blame, from Hoover to Bush, they are quick with their "Mission Accomplished" moments, but cannot accept making terribly wrong decisions for the 90 years, but especially the last 30 years.

    Not admitting mistakes is part of the mind of a delusional sociopath! Mr Cheney's glass house is about to come crashing down upon him!

    Must be great making no mistakes. Does he think he can walk on water, too? The fact that he thinks he made no mistakes and that he was always right about everything tells you all you need to know about his mental health.

    I have been listening to this interview. As the headline of the article reads, Cheney refuses to admit to mistakes. Cheney would not admit to having wishes that he could something differently in hindisght. That means nothing could have been done better than how it was done. Everything went perfectly according to plan, according to Cheney.

    Anyone who cannot admit to mistakes, or faults, is delusional. Cheney thinks he can walk on water if he so desired.

    Why are we harassing Kadhafi and others, when this war criminal is walking free and boasting of killing hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraquis to enrich his buddies.
    He can’t even get his story straight in his Book Of Lies.

    Shame he's not behind bars. Taking meals through a slot, walking around in the company of people he could appreciate. It must be awful for him out here in the world of civilians, where mistakes are often made, and recognized, then corrected. Shame the mistake of his election to office wasn't corrected before it became reality.

    Typical for a republican to not appologize or admit any mistakes! Also ...what kind of man would want to walk around with machines connected to themselves to stay alive....its one thing to have an implanted pacemaker but another thing to be a walking BORG "we are BORG (republican) you will all be assimilated into the collective resistance is futile! Get real!

    No surprise here. The devil never admits a mistake. Bush for all his faults is at least human – this guy – not so much. There is a place for you Cheney and it's not air conditioned like CNN.

    He did not make any mistakes except occasionally being nice to liberals. May he live a long time to hunt, fish and annoy left wingers.

    So much for the GOBP being the "party of personal responsibility".
