CIA director Leon Panetta says it’s almost as if former vice president Dick Cheney would like to see another attack on the United States to prove that he is right in criticizing the Obama administration for abandoning the harsh interrogation of terrorism suspects. It is not shocking news. Rush Limbaugh, a dear friend of Dick […]

President George W. Bush has broken his silence this week. He broke his silence not to repent the sins of his eight years as President but to throw his support behind Dick Cheney and the rest of his administration regarding the problems that they have created–especially the handling of terrorist suspects. President Bush hasn’t changed […]

Differences between husband and wife should not be aired in the marketplace.

The dual between President Obama and former vice-president Dick Cheney about how to handle the Guantanamo detainees (specifically, water boarding) is bringing more heat on US foreign policies. Clearly, the two men see things differently. On one hand, if the current US administration believes that torture is wrong, and believes that these practices put Americans […]

Meanwhile, only 1% of those who describe themselves as conservatives have left the GOP over the last eight years. Definitely, the GOP has […]

The video of a group of women called the Code Pink protesters calling Donald Rumsfeld a war criminal is one of the most spectacular events that I have see in a while. At least there are some American people with the guts to call Donald Rumsfeld what he is to his face. I wonder if […]

Definitely, Dick Cheney is succeeding in shifting the attention to be on him. This week he said that he would choose Rush Limbaugh over Colin Powell. It is Cheney’s right to choose one person over another. The media should at least give him that right. Today Rush Limbaugh repaid his favor to Dick Cheney. The […]

The excess of one is the shortage of another.

Lately, Dick Cheney is suffering from what we call in French “verbal diarrhea.” He has been throwing a series of attacks toward the new US administration. I am not sure if the latest attacks are signs of lack of leadership in the Republican party or Dick Cheney is just bored and fighting to stay in […]

The young cannot teach tradition to the old.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney warned the GOP of the danger of becoming moderate. He sees moderation as a change of the philosophy and values of the Republican party.

It is better to be loved than feared.

The Republican party has started the National Council for America, a series of town hall meetings across the US. This initiative shows clearly how serious things are for the GOP.

Evil people know one another.

The Bush administration memos are still in the news. Lately, many people are raising questions about the release of the sensitive information about CIA torture techniques. George W. Bush has been very silent about it. However, Dick Cheney, the ex-vice president of the Bush administration, has been very critical of the Obama administration. He doesn’t […]
