As we mark the 5th anniversary of the occupation of Iraq Dick Cheney calmly expresses his utter disdain for the will of the American people. After all it isn’t his family that is dying over there.
Informed during a Good Morning America interview broadcast Wednesday that two-thirds of Americans now think the war was not worth fighting, Cheney said: “So?”
“So you don’t care what the American people think?” ABC’s Martha Raddatz asked.
He added: “I think we cannot be blown off course by the fluctuations of the public opinion polls. There has in fact been fundamental change and transformation and improvement for the better. That’s a huge accomplishment.”
Cheney added that the economy was going through a “rough patch, there’s no question about it.”
The Vice President is in Oman. Today, he went fishing in the waters between Oman and Iran, borrowing the Sultan of Oman’s 60-foot royal yacht.
While Cheney is fishing military families try to help their loved ones still serving and once they return home, including suicide intervention.
