Damning information on Cheney, with Clinton as the good guy as an added bonus!!!  Again its pre white house but I think it gives you the "flavor" of the man....

But the one company that helped Saddam exploit the oil-for-food program in the mid-1990s that wasn’t identified in Duelfer’s report was Halliburton, and the person at the helm of Halliburton at the time of the scheme was Vice President Dick Cheney. Halliburton and its subsidiaries were one of several American and foreign oil supply companies that helped Iraq increase its crude exports from $4 billion in 1997 to nearly $18 billion in 2000 by skirting U.S. laws and selling Iraq spare parts so it could repair its oil fields and pump more oil.

Since the oil-for-food program began, Iraq has sold $40 billion worth of oil. U.S. and European officials have long argued that the increase in Iraq’s oil production also expanded Saddam's ability to use some of that money for weapons, luxury goods and palaces. Security Council diplomats estimate that Iraq was skimming off as much as 10 percent of the proceeds from the oil-for-food program thanks to companies like Halliburton and former executives such as Cheney.

U.N. documents show that Halliburton's affiliates have had controversial dealings with the Iraqi regime during Cheney's tenure at the company and played a part in helping Saddam Hussein illegally pocket billions of dollars under the U.N.’s oil-for-food program. The Clinton administration blocked one deal Halliburton was trying to push through sale because it was "not authorized under the oil-for-food deal," according to U.N. documents. That deal, between Halliburton subsidiary Ingersoll Dresser Pump Co. and Iraq, included agreements by the firm to sell nearly $1 million in spare parts, compressors and firefighting equipment to refurbish an offshore oil terminal, Khor al Amaya. Still, Halliburton used one of foreign subsidiaries to sell Iraq the equipment it needed so the country could pump more oil, according to a report in the Washington Post in June 2001.

I think Jack and Andrew should just get it over with and become lovers. Two married men, one arch-conservative, one ultra-liberal... a romance for the ages. The movie should be on Showtime. Who'll be the top, who'll be the bottom?  ;D
Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

AC. When LBJ became speaker of the house,he went to CBS in new york city and made a deal. He would give them the scoop first,on everything, if they would make his wifes radio stations,CBS stations,the gold standard of radio at that time. That deal was estimated to be worth 20million at the time,close to 200mill or more in todays dollars. That is from the great David Halberstams book, "the powers that be"(one of the best books Ihave ever read). As you know Halberstam is a famous New york democrat and lib.
I love reading today about one of Pelosis thugs blaming the whole incident on Rumsfeld! Why not Carl Rove? What a gang.  Not only has Rumy been gone but everyone in DOD hates his guts(cause he was cutting overhead).

Heard a good Bush joke today:
Donald Rumsfeld briefed the President this morning. He told Bush that Three Brazilian soldiers were killed in Iraq. To everyone's amazement, all of the color ran from Bush's face, then he collapsed onto his desk, head in hands, visibly shaken, almost whimpering. Finally, he composed himself and asked Rumsfeld, "Just exactly how many is a brazillion?"

Thats HYSTERICAL!  I'll give you one you will like!

One sunny day in 2008, an old man approached the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue, where he'd been sitting on a park bench.

He spoke to the Marine standing guard and said, "I would like to go in and meet with President Hillary Clinton."

The Marine replied, "Sir, Mrs. Clinton is not President and doesn't reside here."

The old man said, "Okay," and walked away.

The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to  the same Marine, "I would like to go in and meet with
President Hillary Clinton".

The Marine again told the man, "Sir, as I said yesterday, Mrs. Clinton is notPresident and doesn't reside here."

The man thanked him and again walked away . . .

The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same Marine, saying "I would like to go in and meet with President Hillary Clinton."

The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, "Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mrs. Clinton.
I've told you already several times that Mrs. Clinton is not the President and doesn't reside here. Don't you understand?"

The old man answered, "Oh, I understand you fine, I just love hearing your answer!"

The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, "See you tomorrow sir."

Bush, Laura and Dick are flying home in AF1 and Dick says, "If I throw a hundred dollar bill out of the window, I will make someone very happy."  Laura then says "If I throw out 5 20s I will make 5 people very happy."  George then says "If I throw 100 one dollar bills out of the window, I will make 100 people happy."

After listening to all of this the pilot leans over to the co-pilot and says, "If I throw all three of them out of the window I will make 100 million people happy."

I think Jack gets his head bit off so often because he often presents it in a way that he knows will get a lot of people here hot under the collar. 

To be honest, that's one of the reasons why I like Jack.

He don't pussy foot around.   :D

Jack and I know what we are doing when we go back and forth!  I think its incredibly fun.  And it really never gets nasty between him and I and I think we both try to keep others off the personal attacks on each other.

abqcarl, did you ever look and see how many other companies in the world do the work that Halliburton does? Maybe you should take a look and see. I think you'll be suprised if you can find five other companies that do that type of work and out of those how many would do it in a time of war?

Point is Rod, the republicans DIDNT look at any other companies!  No bid contract straight to Helliburton!  So maybe you should have given that advice to the war hawks at the top.

AC, it doesn't matter when you need a job done, and they are the only ones that can do it and before anyone says anything. Chaney is not of the board of directors, nor on any committee board nor is he on the executive committee. Which I don't see it would matter since they are the only company capable of doing the job.

I love Lewis Black.  He's my hero.

"Allow me to explain how our federal government works. To begin with, by the federal government I mean Democrats and Republicans working together. And the only thing dumber than a Democrat or a Republican is when those pricks work together. You see, in our two-party system, the Democrats are the party of no ideas and the Republicans are the party of bad ideas. It usually goes something like this. A Republican will stand up in Congress and say, "I've got a really bad idea." And a Democrat will immediately jump to his feet and declare, "And I can make it shittier."

"What is the difference between a Democrat and a Republican? A Democrat blows, a Republican sucks."

My only problem with her request is why does it have to be a non-stop flight?
By stopping half way to refuel she could take a much smaller, more cost efficient plane.
The argument "The Republicans always did it!" kind of goes against the whole "We're better, we care more" routine.

She could spend an extra hour in transit and save literally millions over the course of her tenure as speaker. Wouldn't that be the right  (left?)  thing to do?

As third in line for the presidential succession the WHITE HOUSE (not Pelosi) insisted on no stops en route due to security concerns.

Complain to Dumblefuckya if you have issues with Nancy's flying habits.
