“This book is vastly more detailed, and covers more high crimes and misdemeanors, than either State of Denial, which misunderstands Bush as being in charge, or Crossing the Rubicon, which focuses primarily on Cheneyâ€™s role in first permitting 9-11, and then working assiduously to cover up his malicious malfeasance. See also Ron Susskindâ€™s book, â€œOne Percent Doctrine,â€ which crucifies Cheney, Rumseld, and Rice.”
Just a few impeachable offenses (the list is quite long):
“Subverted the authority of the Secretary of State (Colin Powell) by allowing his daughter to overrule Ambassadors and meet privately with various heads of state.
“Shut both foreign competitors and more cost-effective indigenous contracting solutions, severely harming the national security of the United States by fostering an environment of unproductive looting by Halliburton, Bechtel, and others.”
“Personally reinforced Rumsfeld on use of torture, by-passing the Presidentâ€™s more measured restrictions.
“Conspired with Speaker Hastert to subordinate the House of Representatives, using a special office of his own (first time in history) so that Representatives could be brought to him rather than his calling on them.”
Review of Vice: Dick Cheney and the Hijacking of the American Presidency, donkey o.d., May 6, 2007
Just go read it. It’s very convincing. Cheney must go before he does any more damage. ‘Course then Rice will be appointed VP and Bush will resign and that will be… interesting. Unless Bush and Cheney go simultaneously then… President Pelosi!
