How about a Booster shot for Cheney’s Failing Memory

Exhibit A:  Cheney Knows Nothing!…

Melanie Sloan:

In his FBI interview  

He [Cheney] says, ‘I don’t recall.’ ‘I don’t remember.’ ‘I don’t know.’ well over 75 times

Why is it Cheney always has something to say

except for when it comes to owning up to his own actions?

Perhaps a little stroll down Memory Lane, a revisit to his trail of deceptions,

perhaps that would help to jar his memory back into the Truth Mode?

Then again, that herculean effort might take more than just “a stroll” —

It might a serious investigation into Cheney’s lapses of judgment and ethics,

and his concerted efforts, to foist his will on the American People,

as he continues to do, even now.

Exhibit B: Cheney’s chief of staff knows a lot!

Cheney ‘Authorized’ Libby to Leak Classified Information

By Murray Waas, National Journal – Feb. 9, 2006

Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff, I. Lewis (Scooter) Libby, testified to a federal grand jury that he had been “authorized” by Cheney and other White House “superiors” in the summer of 2003 to disclose classified information to journalists to defend the Bush administration’s use of prewar intelligence in making the case to go to war with Iraq


Libby testified to the grand jury that he had been authorized to share parts of the NIE with journalists in the summer of 2003 as part of an effort to rebut charges then being made by former U.S. Ambassador Joseph Wilson that the Bush administration had misrepresented intelligence information to make a public case for war.…

Exhibit C: Cheney’s would-be prosecutor, strongly suspects he’s guilty — but just can’t prove it.


Cheney’s Suspected Role in Security Breach Drove Fitzgerald

By R. Jeffrey Smith, Washington Post Staff Writer – March 7, 2007

Fitzgerald would respond with great frustration in his summation at Libby’s trial almost three years later, saying that Libby’s lies had effectively prevented him from learning about all of Cheney’s actions in the administration’s campaign to undermine Plame’s husband, Joseph C. Wilson IV, a critic of the U.S. invasion of Iraq.


Although Cheney was the target, Fitzgerald’s investigation could not reach him because of Libby’s duplicity.


Fitzgerald’s presentation also called attention to two occasions in which Libby said Cheney instructed him to deal directly with reporters and spelled out what to say — his meeting on July 8, 2003, with Miller and his telephone conversation four days later with Time magazine correspondent Matt Cooper. In both, Libby mentioned Plame’s employment at the CIA.…

Exhibit D:  CIA Director, calls the Cheney-Libby shenanigans Wrong — Big Time!

George Tenet on ’60 Minutes’ Calls Outing of Plame ‘Big Time Wrong’

29 Apr 2007

NEW YORK In his much publicized “60 Minutes” interview tonight, tied to his new book, former CIA director George Tenet flatly called the outing of one of his employees, Valerie Plame, “big time wrong.”


Exhibit E: Cheney’s still can’t remember anything, even though his super loyal chief of staff, has testified otherwise. (in prior ages, this would be called simply “A COVER UP”)

Cheney Could Not Recall Key Plame Leak Events

Article: Jason Leopold,  2 November 2009

But Cheney said he didn’t recall any conversations he had with Libby or others about leaking the contents of the NIE to Miller, according to the summary of his interview with Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald and other FBI investigators.

The vice president does not recall any member of his staff, including Scooter Libby, meeting with New York Times reporter Judith Miller during the week of 7/7/03, just after the publication of Joe Wilson’s editorial in the New York Times,” according to the interview transcript.

Libby, however, testified to a grand jury in March 2004, two months before Cheney’s interview, that Cheney not only gave him the green light to leak the so-called “key judgments” of the NIE, but also said that the authorization to do so came from President George W. Bush.…

So Why does our celebrity-fawning Media run to cover, every ranting statement that Dick Cheney, might mumble?  When really they should be bringing him a Blanket, a Rocking Chair, and maybe, if they were nice, a few super-hero comic books.

Some theories for Cheney’s supposed relevance, to our (cough) current event news:

1) The celebrity-fawning Media, has forgotten how to do real Journalism.

2) The celebrity-fawning Media, has forgotten how to connect more than 1 dot, in a row.

3) The info-tainment Media, Cares more about Controversy, than it does about its own Civic Responsibility.

4) Fox News, needs at least one winger per week, one talking head, who doesn’t sound like a total Loon — to maintain their “cloak of credibility”.

Don’t be fooled by the Media charade.

Because as soon as some aspiring Journalist, fresh out of college, can deduce the Lessons of the last Decade, well … Cheney will finally be forced to find that Rocking chair — and fade quietly into the sunset.

That — or go on the road with Palin, so they can keep selling their Snake Oil BS , to that ever shrinking demographic, the gullible — the Fox Snooze channel viewers.

Then again, Real Leaders, know how to own up to their own actions,  don’t they?

Perhaps Cheney can shut his pie hole, for at least 10 days … listen, and learn.

    Exhibit F: Cheney furious and indignant, at “justice not being done”.

    Cheney furious at Bush for not pardoning Libby

    Johanna Neuman, LATimes –Feb 17, 2009

    It is being described as a full-court, all-out campaign, waged in the last days of the Bush administration by then Vice President Dick Cheney, to get George W. Bush to grant a full pardon to I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby.

    The effort failed, but the snub by the Texas Lone Ranger has left Cheney furious. As the New York Daily News reported, Cheney “tried to make it happen right up until the very end,” pressing his case in many conversations, both in person and on the phone. Cheney was relentless, said one ally.

    Bitter over the outcome, Cheney has now gone public, arguing that his chief of staff was railroaded by the administration’s political critics. As he told the Weekly Standard:

    He was the victim of a serious miscarriage of justice, and I strongly believe that he deserved a presidential pardon. Obviously, I disagree with President Bush’s decision.

    So where does that “Strong Belief of Innocence” come from Dick?

    All those 75+ things related to this Case —

    why cheney is still alive.  All of his heart problems.  I have done no research but wonder alot if he has had any transplants….he certainly has a worldwide data base to choose from as far a getting matched for a donar(s).  Then again, maybe all the heart stuff was just another lie and he really is just fit as a fiddle in his undisclosed location.  

  1. It seems the Media’s recollection is equal to that of Cheney’s, as is the entire GOP’s.  Not only do they all suffer recollection inability, they all share pathological lying — I’d say they suffer the inability to do anything but lie, as well!!!

    Sad thing is Cheney can get all the air time he wishes and, of course, he’s bent on making Obama appear totally inept and incompetent. And just to think how Obama extended his hands across the “borders” — I bet he’d do differently had he known his hands would be “vaccinated” with venom.
