Cheney had an approval rating even lower than Bush. He would never have been elected even if he ran. [/quote]
That’s what made him such a great VP. He cared about governance, and not a bit about his future political standing.
You really think Biden is more intelligent than Cheney? :roflmao: I would argue that Cheney has much more substantial government experience, and that’s not including the 5 years of real-life business experience of being a CEO of a top-performing company. Cheney moved around a lot more in government. He worked in the Office of Economic Opportunity with Rumsfeld under Nixon. Before entering the House in 1978 and becoming Defense Sec under Bush I , he held several positions including White House Staff Assistant in 1971, Assistant Director of the Cost of Living Council from 1971–73, and Deputy Assistant to the president from 1974–1975. What did Biden do before becoming VP? A senator since 1972, and one with a penchant for stealing speeches off of failed UK Labour politicians/putting his foot in his mouth when running abortive campaigns for the top position.
He was honest about it. He was attending school and he had kids, a wife, and elder parents to take care of. Did Kerry have the same responsibilities at an early age? No and that doesn’t really shock me given his own personal ego/self-centredness. His army colleagues certainly were able to see this and that’s why hardly any supported his presidential campaign in '04.
Cheney was 21 and 22, and no one was hurt. Kennedy was 37 when he murdered Mary Jo, who had been a boiler room campaign worker in RFK’s '68 campaign. She was passed around by the Kennedy brothers in the year up to the drowning, supposedly made pregnant by one of them, and then was left to drown by Teddy when the drunk drove his car off of a bridge. And this family is championed by labour in the US? Morons. :roflmao:
I’ve never been paid a dime by any political party or lobbying group in any country in any region of the world.
Well, don’t walk away in silence [Atmosphere].
