Just saw #vice. I have to say they managed to make Cheney likeable and human. Far from demonizing him or holding him to account, they gave him a free pass.
2. Cheney can and should be held to account from a conservative's position and from a ststesman's perspective but this analysis are yet to be written.
3. I'll say this once for anyone who is new to following me. Politicians are nasty people. If you want to be limed don't be a politician. The political decisions in his family show that.
4. The more successful the better they are at being nasty *and* hiding it. Cheney cold never hide it. That was his political flaw yet made him an important asset for GWB.
5. His final speech to camera is nearly undeniable and it echoes A Few Good Men. Yet it is not the full story. It is a decent defense for Cheney but he is owed a fuller analysis that shows why it is flawed.
6. One argument that needs to be understood is that Cheney shrank from the task. If he *really* believed in the Unitary theory they would have gone into Iran in 2004.
7. If you are serious about regime change not as some excuse but as a doctrine then you marched into Tehran and you fulfill what is implicit in AUMF ie that which animates it.
8. If you don't understand that logic or it upsets you then consider why. From there you might be able to salvage something but at what cost. That is what is missing in USFP and the American regime.
9. We need a POTUS who can offer that vision. BHO did not have it neither did HRC and DJT could see it if it hit him in the mouth, repeatedly.
10. VICE asked the question and whether they intended it not they only gave Cheney's and Bush's answer. In that sense they did him a huge favour. End.
