  • Vice President is not a part of the Executive

    At least that is what Cheney says.

    Nice.

    Apart?

    Or a part?

    Regardless, I'd like to hear the entire context of Vice President Cheney's quote.

          At this point I'd like to see Cheney charged with treason. He's done irreuputable harm to this country and its government.

              Hehe, I missed it.

              One of the best jokes I've heard lately (though it's not really a joke) is that Dick Cheney is the worst president in American history.

                I usually try to keep from calling the current administration evil (I'll call them incompetent all day though), but this takes the taco. This action just blows my mind.

                I wish I had something more constructive to say.

                  I thought I'd throw this out to anyone who isn't afraid of Cheney and who he 'represents.' Some might write this off as conspiracy theory, but John Perkins is offering a first-hand account of exactly how the US-controlled World Bank, US private industry (namely Bechtel and Haliburton) and the executive branch of the US government have been operating over the past four decades.

                      You know that by law, he would preside over his own impeachment proceedings, yes?

                        That duty would most likely fall to the President Pro Tempore. Impeachment proceedings are not set in stone and are very much subject to the whims of the sitting Congress.

                          Thereby furthering the myth that Cheney is untouchable? No, I don't. Steeler is correct, this would fall to the President Pro Tempore, currently Robert Byrd of West Virginia.

                          It's not going to happen anyway. Cheney's trial will happen in the eyes of the public when they eventually gain access to the transcripts (what little there are) of his private dealings. I hope to be alive then so I can witness for myself how fragile our US democracy really is, or was.

                            Of course, Steven Aftergood, of the Federation of American Scientists, whose initial complaint with the ISOO sparked this whole thing, has some interesting things to say about this issue, including linkage to last night's brilliant Daily Show sendup.
