    Post Oh ****!Cheney!

    July 20, 2007
    Cheney to become president…briefly
    WASHINGTON (CNN) – President Bush will undergo a routine colonoscopy Saturday, and will transfer power to Vice President Dick Cheney during the procedure, expected to take about two and a half hours, the chief White House spokesman said.

    Tony Snow said Friday that the procedure, during which a doctor looks for any signs of cancer, will be carried out at Camp David, Maryland, and the president will be placed under anesthesia.

    Bush’s last colonoscopy was in June 2002, and no abnormalities were found, Snow said.

    It has always been to my understanding that trolls go to sites only to start and keep arguments going. Or to annoy people in general. I've not done that, so I don't believe I'm being trollish.

    *Game Show Theme Music Playing*

    Welcome to another edition of "Who wants to control the world!"

    Our Contestant today is Vice....I mean President Dick Cheney.

    President Cheney, you have aprox 2 1/2 hours to try and crack the compination to the Presidential Football, otherwise known as the Nuclear Button that can Destroy the World. The clock will start when the first injection of sedadive starts, and it will stop when President Bush says his first non-sedadive induced sentence.

    *Disclaimer flashes accross the screen: "The Judges will determine if any incoherend sentence spoken by President Bush is related to sedadives or if they are his normal English*

    You know, I thought something like that. Like how he's probably already eyeing the Big Red Button. I told my dad about this and he said something about Cheney getting a shotgun. And as long as we have him we really don't need the CIA.

    Oh yeah. But then I'm sure they'd show the Pres a little more respect and care than they do the wounded troops/vets.

    I'd rather go hunting with Dick Cheney than go for a ride with Ted Kennedy.

    P.S. Ignore Norm, he is just whacked and miserable

    I like Sen. Reid's comments when Cheney was criticizing Reid. "I'm not going to get into a debate with someone whose approval rating is less than 20%."

    Snarls Cheney is one of the worst people brought on board by this administration. Fortunately, these little 2-3 hour stints is as close as he will get to the presidency.

    Sapphire. Don't worry about George (aka Norm). He's disillusioned the president he championed for so long is finally being exposed as what will surely be one of the worst administrations in the history of our nation. I can only take solace in knowing the republic is stronger than the damage any one person do while in office.

    Personally, I think that the President wil make medical history...

    They will discover that his colon is actually his brain.. which would explain the crappy decisons he's made while in office!

    I believe he has been able to do far more damage "behind the scenes" as VP than he ever would have been able to do as president.

    Me too. At least his vic came home alive. I wasn't around when the other happened, but I've heard about it. Sad stuff.

    Is it really that low? Geez isn't that lower than the president's? Gotta love that comeback though.

    Evidently. Last I heard they were trying to make the White House hand over some official documents and they refuse to. I guess that's their way of pleading the 5th.


    Ok, as for George, I'm not worried about it. I've been called very crude names right to my face, so being called a troll over the internet doesn't bother me at all.

    Oh, and scfire86...I can't say much about George's political views because I voted for Bush too. My Personal Opinion: Bush is definitely not perfect, but at least he's not Kerry. And really you never know what will happen after you vote them in, or how they will handle it.

    Sapphire. You're absolutely correct. I feel very secure in saying what I've stated before. Kerry could've gone into the Oval Office and slept for eight years and done less damage than Bush and Cheney.

    Times aren't getting any easier. But unfortunately none of the men running have gotten tough along with the day we're living in. None of them have any clue whatsoever how the working man lives. They have no idea what it's like to live from paycheck to paycheck. They don't know what it's like trying to raise a family with what little you do manage to keep after the Government Tax Vacuum sucks it outta you. We need someone like that. And it wouldn't matter of he was a Dem or Rep. We just desperately need someone who understands the masses, because he's one of them.

    But, he won't ever get voted in because we'll never know he exists. Remember the last time Dan Quayle ran for president? He dropped out, and in an interview, he said something that made so much sense. He said that there needs to be a spending limit on presidential fund raisers. Because if there isn't, then it'll only be the rich that can be able to run, and only the richest of them will get the Office. And that's absolutely contrary to the constitution, because it's open to anyone who's an American citizen by birth, and who's 35+. It says nothing about money, but that's what it's come down to.

    By the way...if you notice I've kept saying "man" or "men" because I absolutely WILL NOT vote for a woman to be president. Why? Because she'd be like some of the crazies that I know and would have us in war with Everybody. Think about it. I've seen it and i know some of you have. I have seen some very serious catfights break out over the smallest of incidents. Would you wanna give the Power of the Red Button to a woman like that? Um, no. But seriously, I just don't agree with it.

    That's an interesting statement coming from Quayle. He is from a very wealthy family.

    Despite all the pejoratives thrown at Bill Clinton, he came from a very modest background. Even if you have political differences with him, his background is middle class at best. He came from a single parent household that was dysfunctional at best. Hillary on the other hand is from a wealthy family in Illinois. Or at least what would be considered upper middle class.

    I have more faith in the process as it relates to women candidates than you. The campaign for President is so grueling it weeds out the weak irrespective of gender.

    Quayle might just be wealthy, but he wasn't throwing down millions like the others. But of course a lot of their money came from contributors, and I don't believe Quayle was getting that many If I'm not mistaken, he was running in the last race. Of course one race is as bad as the next so I tend to confuse them

    I don't believe that women are weak. I just...well I have a more traditional view than most. Couple that with the fact that I'm somewhat against a lot of the feminist movement. Not that I believe that women are inferior. They're not. And if a woman does a man's job, she needs to be paid a man's wage for it. But what I don't like is how she wants to walk in a man's shoes, but then turn around and play the "weaker vessel" card when she doesn't get her way.

    Well now that y'all think I've gone over the shallow end and hit my head, I'll just end this post --->right here<---
