Cheney: "I’m delighted to support John McCain"
Vice President Dick Cheney made a rare appearance on the campaign trail in Wyoming. During a speech, he offered a wholehearted endorsement of John McCain and Sarah Palin:
"I believe the right leader for this moment in history is Senator John McCain...I’m delighted to support John McCain"
It's impossible to imagine Dick being delighted about anything other than making a killing, financially and literally. His profits during the last eight years have been enormous. His Saudi pals have gotten everything they wanted and more. He's moved his assets to Dubai. Halliburton's no bid contract details are safely hidden in the UAE; mission accomplished. McSame will block any and all investigations into the last eight criminal years if he gains access to the White House. "This moment in history" of theft and murder would be swept under the executive rug by a McCain/Palin administration while receiving access to the truly big corporate donors and use of Dick and Dubya's dirty unethical staffs and lobbyists. Only the names on the letterheads would change, the corruption and impeachable offenses would continue.
Cheney thinks Palin has common sense? Pastor Muthee De-witched her. Is that the same thing to the far right winger base?
"...and I’m pleased that he’s chosen a running mate with executive talent, toughness and common sense, our next vice president in Sarah Palin."
Of course he's pleased with Palin, her executive "talent" is unitary as is his, with no accountability to the people. She's Dick in lipstick. If she gets her tough claws into the VP's office it's no change from Dick's tenure. More of the same stonewalling, secrecy, lying, obfuscation and rigged "investigations" that exonerate them thanks to all that "flexibility there" in the Constitution. She's power hungry and he's got power. Both believe "the people" have no rights only a duty to pay taxes and serve in wars. The Barracuda's perfectly pleasing to Dick. Incompetent compassionate conservatism in high heels.
Cheney Endorses McCain"And in three days we'll choose a new steward for the presidency and begin a new chapter in our history. It's the biggest decision that we make together as Americans. A lot turns on the outcome."
You betcha...stewardship (theft) status quo must be maintained, the "chapter" closed on the worst, most impeachable presidency in history, and continuation of war for profit at the expense of all people here and abroad. When Dick speaks of "Americans" he only means the elite powerful crowd who already have all the power, he does NOT mean US.
I believe the right leader for this moment in history is Senator John McCain. John is a man who understands the danger facing America. He's a man who has looked into the face of evil and not flinched.
Darn tootin'. The danger facing America has been, and still is, Dubya and Dick. THE fear machine to end them all. McSame looked into their faces and flinched in 2000 and 2004. This time he's been lead to believe it's his turn but hopefully the American people will not flinch tomorrow and have the guts to vote in their own best interests and elect Obama and Biden. It's the only chance we have to start to get our country back.
He's a man who's comfortable with responsibility and has been since he joined the armed forces at the age of 17. He's earned our support and confidence, and the time is now to make him commander-in-chief.
Right, he didn't have much choice, family tradition dictated his course. Admirals without whose "support" he wouldn't have been allowed to continue flying our planes after wrecking four of them. He earned no confidence, nepotism saved him from the brig. His connections in high places earned him the thrill of running bombing missions over North Vietnam and his admitted recklessness got him shot down. Hardly confidence inspiring, and most certainly not "commander" material.
Obama responded by saying, "I'd like to congratulate Senator McCain on this endorsement because he really earned it."
He sure did, according to factcheck.org McSame voted with Bush/Cheney 95% of the time, but he's cut 5% slack for non-support of the Neothug agenda for cowardly NVs-not voting, missed votes. I make no such allowance for him. His record is not one of maverick but as Joe Biden says, of sidekick. No change at all from the last eight years.
This is our last chance, America. We can't take another four years of this bullshit. VOTE! Vote as if your lives depended upon it...they do. Obama/Biden...our only hope.
