I’m copying another poster’s response from Digg, who pretty much broke it down for his convenience:
Mr. Cheney, let me help your understand this.
You were the primary architect of a war against a sovereign country based on deliberately fabricated intelligence.
You then lied to the electorate who entrusted you with the second highest office about the threat this country posed to the United States.
You failed to complete the military actions started in Afghanastan.
Your administration has created massive debt based on these two wars for which future Americans will be paying for many years.
Your personal assistant was involved in a political revenge act that resulted in the disclosure of a United States secret intelligence agent.
Your administration failed to act decisively or correctly when a major American city was destroyed.
Your administration has destroyed the American reputation as a government and country where justice and fairness reigns.
You have admitted to authorizing torture, a principal that is completely opposite all American values throughout our history.
Your administration has caused hundreds of thousands of deaths and destroyed an entire country and its civilization.
Your administration has created a legislative environment where the climate of the world is at jeopardy.
Your administration ( a republican one at that) authorized the effective nationalization of the banking system, effectively dealing a death blow to capitalism.
Your administration failed to act decisively, when warned, in stemming the damage in the sub prime mortgage market which has subsequently led to the largest economic failure in the last 75 years, and even more likely the largest economic disaster in human history.
I am not going to pass comment on whether some of these actions were illegal. History or subsequent investigations should provide that answer.
History will not judge the Bush/Cheney years in any favorable light. It’s true there has not been another terrorist attack on the US mainland since 9/11, but the price we have paid in personal liberty and sacrifices to the Constitution will be balanced against that victory, and again I think history will not be a favorable judge.
I honestly do not understand how you or anyone in the Bush administration can seriously think history will judge you in any other light than as a complete and total failure of stupendous magnitude.
So long, Dick.
