Mondale on Cheney

Faithful Progressive: Former Vice President Walter Mondale: Cheney Has Gone Too Far: "I’ve never seen a former member of the House of Representatives demonstrate such contempt for Congress - even when it was controlled by his own party. His insistence on invoking executive privilege to block virtually every congressional request for information has been stupefying - it’s almost as if he denies the legitimacy of an equal branch of government. Nor does he exhibit much respect for public opinion, which amounts to indifference toward being held accountable by the people who elected him."

Cheney is a disgrace to our country and our system. And the man who has given him this unprecedented power and allowed him to flaunt public opinion and congressional oversight is even worse.
