Former President George W. Bush reveals in his memoir “Decision Points” that his vice president and longtime friend, Dick Cheney, became “angry” in 2007 when the president decided not to pardon former Cheney aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby after Libby was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison.

Bush commuted the prison portion of Libby’s sentence, but allowed the jury’s verdict, fine and community service to stand, which upset Cheney. Libby was convicted of lying to federal agents investigating the public outing of Valerie Plame as a CIA operative.

According to Bush, Cheney confronted him about Libby, saying, “I can’t believe you’re going to leave a soldier on the battlefield.”

This shows the mentality of a man like Dick Cheney. The ends justify the means, etc. Plus he knew he was the one who should have been in jail, not Scooter Libby. Libby only did what his boss told him to do, and then lied about it to protect Cheney.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
I'm shocked that he was a heartbeat away from being president.

Then Sarah Palin was presented.

I can't wait to see who the next VP candidate will be.

Cheney 'd have made a much, much better President than W.

I always LIKED Cheney a lot.

Cheney is a better American than either of the Bushes.

I always was impressed when Bush talked while Cheney was drinking a glass of water.

In W's case that isn't saying much.

@OmSigDAVID,
Cheney is a better American for throwing a CIA agent under the bus when he didn't like the correct conclusion her husband came to? I guess I just don't have what it takes to be a great American if that is the standard.

OMsigDavid can't believe the trash he posts - he'd have to be a complete imbecile to do so - so I conclude that he does it to stir up arguments, i.e. he's a troll.

@engineer,
You do realize it was Richard Armitage who was the source...don't you?

Yeah, Engineer! And you also realize that it was Richard Armitage dressed up as G Bush and D Cheney that gave all those lying speeches to the media and the American public ... don't you?

When Dick and George found out how he had besmirched their good names, they were livid.

@Finn dAbuzz,
Yes, my post was in reply to Dave's comment about Cheney, not in reference to Libby. Lying to the Grand Jury doesn't make my list of great American attributes either.

@djjd62,
I deleted the previous link because I realized it had a lot of other kind of interesting but not relevant images on it.

Here it is by itself.

Nope, not by itself, nevermind.

I'm sure Armitage thought is all up on his own.

Not to quibble, but your post read

If anyone threw Plame "under the bus", it was Armitage.

Libby was convicted of obstruction and perjury - Cheney was not.

You don't have to like Cheney, but you should stick to the facts in your criticism of him.
