Hard-ass Darth gives the finger to Congress and the American public

what else would you expect from a man who shot his friend in the face...?
Cheney said the administration would disregard the nonbinding resolution opposing the troop increase and suggested it undermines soldiers in a war zone. "It won't stop us," he said. "And it would be, I think, detrimental from the standpoint of the troops."

the bush administration has made it crystal clear since the scotus decision of 12 december 2000 officially awarded a stolen election to the r's, that they would do precisely what they goddam well please, damn the facts, damn public opinion, damn the courts, damn congress, damn the polls, damn our allies, and damn the american people... anyone who is surprised by this hard-edged rhetoric hasn't been paying attention...

i know we'll all be enormously comforted by darth's reassurances to wolf blitzer on cnn...

When Blitzer asked whether the administration's credibility had been hurt by "the blunders and the failures" in Iraq, Cheney interjected: "Wolf, Wolf, I simply don't accept the premise of your question. I just think it's hogwash."

In fact, Cheney said, the operation in Iraq has achieved its original mission. "What we did in Iraq in taking down Saddam Hussein was exactly the right thing to do," he said. "The world is much safer today because of it. There have been three national elections in Iraq. There's a democracy established there, a constitution, a new democratically elected government. Saddam has been brought to justice and executed. His sons are dead. His government is gone."

"If he were still there today," Cheney added, "we'd have a terrible situation."

"But there is," Blitzer said.

"No, there is not," Cheney retorted. "There is not. There's problems -- ongoing problems -- but we have in fact accomplished our objectives of getting rid of the old regime, and there is a new regime in place that's been here for less than a year, far too soon for you guys to write them off." He added: "Bottom line is that we've had enormous successes and we will continue to have enormous successes."

ah... i feel SO much better now, don't you...?
