Public Opinion of Dick Cheney
CNN.com has released the polling
results of a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey taken during the period from Friday, December 19 through Sunday, December 22, 2008. Those taking the poll were asked questions that included one about their opinion of Vice President Dick Cheney's performance in office relative to others who had held the position. The results are graphically depicted below.
As the illustration shows, about 23 percent of those surveyed think Mr. Cheney is the "worst" Vice President, while another 41 percent rate him as "poor"; 34 percent judge him as "good," and one percent think he is the "best." The poll has a sampling error of approximately three percent.
The Dark Wraith will not bother to formally survey the readers here to see what they think of Mr. Cheney's performance in office (although a few comments on the man will surely issue forth, nonetheless).
DICK cheney pretty well sums it up for me. This is one evil miscarriage of a human being. I do have to give this creature credit though, it maybe has more profoundly fucked up this nation than any other calamity.
I thank Vice-President Richard Cheney for educating the entire world. He has finally put a face on the hateful and divisive rightwing as few others could. It wasn't so much that he was the chief instigator in so many vile deeds while in office; Rather it was how many did not object to torture and civil rights violations, in fact, they soon found reasons why it was unpatriotic to voice opposition to these crimes.
The fact that Cheney himself, who said that the reasons for not going after Saddam in the first Gulf excursion turned out to be so prophetic, soon saw his former employer making more money than they could possibly bury, was not lost on those who gave it much thought. He KNEW all this would happen, yet his greed was enough to persuade him that this time, he and his cronies could cover for the inhuman costs of war; He just didn't realize, in a stark Peter's Principle effect, that he and they were just not very competent.
Only smart people, like our host here, could swing being outrageously greedy with competently assuaging those who do not benefit from it.
Please don't get the impression that she haunts my waking moments or anything other than the fact that she says things that are blatantly ridiculous, so I present another ad from Human Events, starring Ann Coulter, this time for money to help stop the Fairness Doctrine.
I'll merely show you the subject line of the email:
Help stop my nightmares!
Now I can't full credit for what I'm thinking when I read this; I have a Queen-sized pillow behind my back on this chair, because I like to sit up straight, but boy howdy, I sure know what I'd do with it now...
i can only summon up a picture of that motherfucker in chains at the bar of the hague to answer for his crimes.
deluded, and absolutely fucking greedy. he quadupled his haliburton shares by awarding no-bid/no performance contracts to his old company.
blind trusts are for idiots and little people. he stole with both fucking hands every minute of every furtive day.

Comments? You mean about his being a war criminal, about his hostility to the Constitution, about his preference for a "lite" form of fascism, or just about the fact that he's an incompetent fuck-up who's made a horrific mess of nearly everything by dint of his frighteningly blind certitude regarding his own wisdom?
Beyond that I don't have any comments that I can think of.........
OT comment re: The Art of Grousing...
DW, anyone who would willingly go into a WalMart at other than 3AM at your age the week before Christmas has no room for griping about the experiance. I will admit to running in there today, but it was the "little" local superstore, rather than the monster superstore nearer my work, and I had 2 items to get for Christmas dinner and my work schedule had changed so I didn't shop yesterday. Outside of the selection sucking, and the prices I swear higher than last week, the main problem was that someone needs to start issuing driver's licences for shopping carts.
Then I was pissed to find out I had gone to that shopping center and bearded WalMart solely to do a Dollar Tree run, only to discover that the Dollar Tree had closed down. Should've gone to Food Lion.
Anyway, Happy Holidays to all, as I run off to prepare for our combined Christmas/Channakka/Solstice/Yule celebration.
Cheney was Vice-President?
Anyway, his tenure has been an utter success. For eight years he has accurately judged the American people and bludgeoned them with their own black character. Moreover, he can look forward to continued ample reward for his premeditated brutalities, rather than face the prospect of punishment for them.
Interesting that 35% of Americans support this Evil in the flesh.
Yes, konagod, I noticed that, too.
Either they are disconneted from anything political, or they are a truly menacing lot. In either event, it is best to remember that they are out there. They will not vanish, they will not be changed, and they will not be silenced forever.
Someday, they will return as a political force. All they need is a new leader.
They are, of course, working on that; and when they return, they will be worse than what we have seen, just like Bush's supporters were worse than Reagan's, and just like Reagan's supporters were worse than Nixon's.
The Dark Wraith will make more cautionary statements about this in the months and years to come.
