If the Republicans had only exerted even just a modicum of restraint while in office, then I would feel for them.
Remember that this is not average Republican voters that are being attacked, but specific Republican office holders who showed entirely no lack of restraint in spending our money and expanding the powers of government.
These are the same scumbags who under the rubric of "compassionate conservatism" gave us the "No Federal Mandate Left Behind" law, Medicare part Dumb, ear-marks, CDS's, etc.
If Cheney, Bush, and all those scumbags go to jail then fine by me.
We need to flush all those RINOs out of the party anyway.
And yes Cheney is a RINO because being a hawk on Foreign Policy doesn't give him a pass for being a wuss on Domestic Policy.
Yeah that Cheney, what a really squishy moderate he is. Thats clearly why the Dems love attacking him so much...(Sheesh, just when you’ve thought you heard it all). Whatever you’re currently smoking, stop.

Dopn’t be silly. The Democrats will burn their way through the politicians fast enough and then they’ll look around and find other easier targets ~ LIKE YOU!

Your post has nothing to do what so ever with interrogation techniques....
If you hate Bush/Cheney, you must want to destroy Obama....
Please don’t mix apples and oranges on these posts.

I wish it was just as simple as you expressed. This is, however, not about weak kneed Republicans. This is about career CIA and military officers being fed into the lion's mouth just for pure political sport. If only it were RINO’s, I would like to see their collective noses bloodied due to their lack of spine. However, we're talking about men and women on the front lines against terrorist's who will be vilified publicly, and some may go to prison, if Obama has his way.

VPs have to follow the leaders lead. It is that or quit. I would expect that Cheney did a lot quietly behind the scenes keeping Bush's “compassionate conservatism” from going even further off the rails. I believe Rove was the “genius” behind compassionate conservatism. He thought he could buy votes from the Dems by being Democrat lite. It was a failure on all fronts.
