VP Dick Cheney Vows: "We'll Be Active in  Elections"
Those loud peals of hearty laughter, happiness and shrieks of glee today coming from all Democratic Party candidates for any federal office in 2008, including the oval one in the White House, must be in reaction to a promise made by Vice President Dick Cheney in Kansas City this afternoon.
The Veep and George (Worst. President. Ever.) Bush will be hitting the campaign trail, even though they will thankfully and finally be retiring from public office. With these two vowing to show their faces and support during the 2008 races, I think the Democrats can start measuring for new drapes at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and in more House and Senate offices on Capitol HIll.
While the President and I won't be on the ballot next year, we'll be active in elections because they matter a great deal to the country.
Talk about terror striking at Americans! I'm gazing into a GOP crystal ball and I see Republican hopefuls across this great country shrieking at the prospect of having Bush and Cheney campaign for them in 2008, or in any degree "active" on their behalf.
Maybe by next year Cheney's speechwriters will have him correctly state when the disastrous tax cuts for the rich were enacted. That would be in '01 and '03.
The main advantage our party will have, we believe, will be a record of accomplishment, because the economy has been restored from the recession in the aftermath of 9/11, the tax package we passed in '91 [sic] and again in '93 [sic] has had a tremendous impact on the economy. We've now generated more than eight million new jobs in the last four years.
