    Does this mean that Chaney was president for four years and Bush for four?

    Dick Cheney would veto any bailout bill, and I doubt he would push for immigration reform. I would have liked to try his version of true conservatism instead of this compassionate conservatism the liberal G.W. Bush rammed down our throats.

    We go from a cooky conservative and spent us into a hole to a flaming liberal. God help us. I'll take Cheney over either one of them.

    I think you're wrong about vetoing the bailout legislation, don't you recall him telling the congressional GOP's they would forever be known as the Hoover party? Not only did the bill have his support, he encouraged others to give their support.

    If I'm not mistaken, during Bush's second term, wasn't Cheney a stand in president for a day or two while Bush was having minor surgery?

    I think that he was referring to the coming Biden gaffs.

    I will look into that. But my knowledge of Cheney is that he is a true conservative, and that's why we never saw him.

    I believe you are correct. Biden's mouth is always miles ahead of his brain.

    I have always trusted Dick Cheney more than GW Bush. Except I would not go hunting with him....:tonofbricks:

    I think that is everyone's fear... I think secret service won't let him hunt with himself...
