Dick Cheney calls into the Rush Limpbaugh program whenever the Assministration is really desperate. For instance, he called Rush back in October of 2005 in a vain attempt to rescue Harriet Miers Supreme Court nomination.
They must be very worried about their Iraq War funding because Cheney called Limpy again today.
Right off the bat Cheney agrees with Rush when he says that Deomcrats “devoted… to the concept of US defeat.”
LIMPBAUGH: Now, you and the President both have derided the theatrics of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi and a number of the Democrats, and I don’t know if you’re being politic with the statement — I, frankly, need to ask you if you really think it’s theatrics, or is this who they really are? Is this what they really intend, to lose this war, to make sure we come home defeated?
THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, I think that the policies that they are recommending would, in fact, produce that result.
LIMPBAUGH: Can you share with us whether or not you understand their devotion, or their seeming allegiance to the concept of U.S. defeat?
THE VICE PRESIDENT: I can’t.
But Cheney crossed the line when the discussion turned to Bush’s cowardly recess-appointment of Sam Fox to be our Ambassador to Belgium.
LIMPBAUGH: One more, and that’s the recess appointment of Sam Fox. Sam Fox is from my home state, and I know Sam Fox — he’s an immigrant, a Ukrainian Jewish immigrant, whose parents would have nothing — when they died they had nothing. He is a totally self-created man, a great American. And he was treated horribly by Senator Kerry and others on that committee, simply because he had made a political donation. They essentially told him he did not have freedom of speech in this country, until he would apologize, until he would go up to Kerry and apologize for supporting the Swift Boats. Now the President has recess-appointed him. And of course, the Democrats have said they’re going to investigate this and going to look into this.
This is the kind of move that garners a lot of support from the people in the country. This shows the administration willing to engage these people and not allow them to get away with this kind of — well, my term — you don’t have to accept it — Stalinist behavior from these people on that committee.
THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, you’re dead on, Rush.
Illegally subverting the will of Congress is one big joke to the Vice President.
LIMPBAUGH: You go on vacation, this is what happens to you.
THE VICE PRESIDENT: If you’re a Democrat. (Laughter.)
