The World According to Dick Cheney



Pretty slanted documentary on Showtime featuring the life and times of Dick Cheney, with heavy emphasis on the Bush years and Iraq War.

Every swinging dick that Cheney shook hands with over the course of his career was mentioned, from Rummy to Chaz Bono, with one glaring exception - Paul Wolfowitz. Without doubt, Wolfowitz had more to do with the WMD info coming through the Pentagon than anyone else in the administration. He belongs in prison and his name is not mentioned in the film. Not once. You'd think he'd be mentioned at least in passing as a major associate of Cheney.

I'd say "unbelievable" but it really isn't. Anybody want to explain that one to me?

It's not a documentary from afar, either. Cheney fully cooperated with it and parts of his interview are featured throughout the film.

But yeah, no Wolfowitz. fricking bull shite.

Love him or hate him...you won't find Cheney hidin under the bed like Benghazi Obama. He'll tell you what he thinks.

They made pragmatic choices, re oil, freedom, Islamists threats...and I reckon they did so with the information given them.

Hard world. Don't get Showtime...but I'd like to watch it.

So now military service is a determinate for office, or actions taken in office?

So - in other words, you malign Cheney for keeping his draft board informed of his status. Note - this was from the first article google gives when "cheney deferments' is searched. And it was in an article attacking Cheney in the same way you did.

quote:

Eventually, like 16 million other young men of that era, Mr. Cheney sought deferments. By the time he turned 26 in January 1967 and was no longer eligible for the draft, he had asked for and received five deferments, four because he was a student and one for being a new father.


"Asking for" deferments is a damned lie. I got the same deferments and I never 'asked' for anything. I reported my status to the draft board every year, and they sent me the deferment they determined to be applicable to my situation.

I literally hate you damned delusional bastards who use lies and deceit in attacking someone conservative - yet you say nothing about the scum that rises to the top of the liberal shitpile. Clinton's draft status anyone?????

Dick Cheney is brilliant. Why would anyone give a shite whether he slapped on some boots and purified water or built a god dammed jungle bridge. He was better suited to be a govt. official, regardless of his deferment status.

He didn't say that military service is a requirement, I belive he's implying that chickenhawks don't have the moral authority to advocate reckless wars of choice. Not everyone who did not serve is a chickenhawk.

"Let's you and him go fight." - the official battle cry of the chickenhawk

And you are the very definition of an idiot. I pity you with your small brain and visions of grandiosity. If you were on fire, I wouldn't even piss on you.

re: The World According to Dick Cheney


There are not necessarily, concrete virtues or practical personal attributes to be gained in military service; for some, it creates great character...others...does zip or causes great harm. John McCain....John Kerry...Charlie Rangel.

Cheney earned his keep, just acting as the grown up in the room for the light weight GW...in a time where the wrong decision could have meant wholesale terror attacks on our citizenry. We took the war over there, gave em' their shot at payback/martyrdom...and indeed...and sadly...their 'pound of flesh'. We paid.

No matter the arguments...Cheney could face their best critic...face to face...and kick ass. Far more than their cowardly champion could ever do. Can you imagine Barack Obama being interviewed by Glenn Beck. That would be a SLAUGHTER! Really. Obama would come unglued; couldn't handle it. Cheney...interviewed by Chris Matthews...another slaughter.

Must be hard defending the Libs; like running into a strong wind.
