Mr. Cheney's political career has included working with four Republican presidents. A playful Mrs. Cheney asked,
"So who's your favorite?"To which he replied:
"I got to work for all those presidents because I never said who was my favorite."
His proudest accomplishment came because of something that didn't happen: The nation did not suffer another devastating terrorist attack in the years following Sept. 11.He stated his greatest fear was a nuclear weapon in the hands of terrorists.
"We came to the point that we could no longer treat terrorist attacks as a simple law enforcement problem," he told the appreciative crowd. "They were an act of war."
That's the sound of a reasonable man speaking.
It's a pity the Democrats were so focused on gaining power, and that their tactic to that end was to undermine the nation's confidence in good men like Dick Cheney.
Dick Cheney loves his country. He has served it well.
God bless and keep him and his family.
