"So What?"
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, December 23, 2008

Is there any question as to which ideology this minority most likely claims?
Twenty-three percent of those questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday say that Cheney is the country's worst vice president, when compared with his predecessors.
Of course the headline is "Poll: 23 percent say Cheney worst vice president ever" instead of "4 out of 5 don't find Cheney to be that bad". Or said another way, here's another poll used to manufacture a "news" story.

CNN knows who butters their bread. They want access to the power structure for the next coupel years, they’ve gotta make the right noises.

Wow. I guess, since 65% agree that Obama appears to be doing a good job so far - and what kind of job is he doing when he has not been sworn in, no one appears to have asked - the headline should read, "45% of Americans Think Obama is Doing a Lousy Job So Far as President-Elect."

Ah...but you won’t see that kind of headline from the silly leftist MSM (moronic slavish media).

I made a bet with a friend last night: I said that you will hear the MSM announce polls on The Clown’s™ performance for a time, as long as those polls show a 55%-60% approval rating. The moment it drops below 55%, or even below 50%, that is the last time you will hear of any approval of what The Clown™ is doing.

Wanna bet I am right?

Oops - that should read "35%," not "45%."

Maybe my coffee this morning was tad too strong.

"Majority finds Cheney sucked, but not as much as some others"

"People who can’t name three VP’s, declare Cheney is among the worst of 43 VP’s"

"Cheney: People who have been both abducted by aliens and have seen Elvis agree, he was a great VP"

"Cheney: More popular than Blagojevich"

"Cheney to pollsters: Go Fu*k yourselves"

"Cheney to begin work on Death Star"

I love Cheney. He’s a miserable ba*tard who doesn’t give a sh*t how much other people may dislike him.

And no, in high office, I feel that is a positive.

But I’m sure VP-Elect Botox will be AMAZING!

Worse president would have to go to Aaron Burr

Key points:
- his duel with Alexander Hamilton was when dueling was outlawed and punishable by death. He fled jurisdictions to avoid being charged with murder.
- he created his own armed forces and intended to rebel against the US
- he was tried for treason against the US
- etc.


So Cheney is worse that that??

Leftists are so hilarious.

Cheney has probably been one of the best VPs, if it is true that his contribution to national security has been what it appears to be. I phrase it like that because he has maintained a confidential relationship with Bush and most of what he has said and done will only emerge in memoirs and from his and Bush’s papers.

The most dangerous VP had to be Henry Wallace, who was a Soviet dupe. In one of those "God protects babies, drunks, and the United States" moments, FDR dumped Wallace in favor of Truman in ’44. Wallace went on to run for president as the candidate of the Progressive Party in ’48. One of his disciples was George McGovern.

Ahem....

Spiro Agnew,
During his fifth year as Vice President, in the late summer of 1973, Agnew was under investigation by the United States Attorney’s office in Baltimore, Maryland, on charges of extortion, tax fraud, bribery, and conspiracy. In October, he was formally charged with having accepted bribes totaling more than $100,000, while holding office as Baltimore County Executive, governor of Maryland, and Vice President of the United States. On October 10, 1973, Agnew was allowed to plead no contest to a single charge that he had failed to report $29,500 of income received in 1967, with the condition that he resign the office of Vice President.

Agnew is to date the only Vice President in U.S. history to resign because of criminal charges.
I’d bet 80% of those polled couldn’t name two former VPs. I’d also take odds that if asked cold, "Who is the current VP?", 50+% couldn’t answer the question.

Indeed. And if we take that at face value, we perhaps understand why the cray against corruption of Democrat party pols from their rank and file hasn’t exactly been earthshaking. Agnew’s corruption gets ignored, while Cheney’s working toward an Iraq victory gets hit with a ’worst of’ label.

Lesson? Mere corruption is OK, but don’t you dare defend American interests with anything resembling force.

CNN got the wrong headline. The headline should have read: "Twenty-three percent of those polled dumber than a brick."
