Cheney: Iraq critics "dishonest and reprehensible"

Where is the White House getting its advice these days? If it were up to me, I'd say "Gee, Mr. Vice President with an approval rating of 20%, why not spend a few days in your favorite undisclosed location?" He just isn't an effective spokesman for integrity right now.

From his statement of yesterday, complete with the same old talking points:

What we’re hearing now is some politicians contradicting their own statements and making a play for political advantage in the middle of a war. The saddest part is that our people in uniform have been subjected to these cynical and pernicious falsehoods day in and day out. American soldiers and Marines are out there every day in dangerous conditions and desert temperatures – conducting raids, training Iraqi forces, countering attacks, seizing weapons, and capturing killers – and back home a few opportunists are suggesting they were sent into battle for a lie.

The President and I cannot prevent certain politicians from losing their memory, or their backbone – but we’re not going to sit by and let them rewrite history.

Man, that's cheap. Critics of the war are trying to get our soldiers out of those conditions, you turd.
