You Can't Have It Both Ways, Dick
Dick Cheney is a guy who likes to do things in secret. Makes me wonder what he's got to hide. While we're all supposed to open our lives to the whims of the NSA, Dick feels everything he does should be shielded from the eyes of the public.
Like when the The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington sued to get a look at Cheney's visitor logs, he claimed "executive privilege".
Now, while refusing to comply with an executive order on the handling of classified information, Cheney has claimed that he doesn't have to do so because under the Constitution also serves as president of the Senate and therefore has both legislative and executive duties.
uldn't have a team of advisors helping him to circumvent the laws (along with a team advisors "fixing" intelligence on Iran, and planning an attack against Iran)and would welcome transparency. Cheney feels that he is the law, all that laws don't apply to him, because if they did, he'd be waiting to join Scooter when he goes to prison. Cheney has also invoked "national security" to prevent prying eyes from seeing the laws he is breaking, but as long as Ol' Dickhead is in office, our country will never be secure.
