Cheney's Progress Report
The fact of the matter is we have been safe and secure here at home. That's not an accident [like, say, shooting a hunting buddy, —ed.]. It didn't happen just because we got lucky.By that logic, the Clinton administration was far more successful than the Bush administration has been thus far, and Carter was an absolute dream. I'm not sure that's what Cheney meant, though.
Cheney also defended his claim that the Iraqi insurgency was in its "last throes", which he originally made over a year ago. That officially makes this the most protracted death scene in the history of political theater. Funny, those death rattles sound an awful lot like explosions.
