Main Question or Discussion Point
This email received from the dems was good for a chuckle.
https://www.democrats.org/page/contribute/cheneybus?source=20090425_JOC_ND2 [Broken]Have you ever had a guest who overstayed his welcome and wondered, "why is he still here?"
After some of his recent interviews, former Vice President Cheney has shown that he clearly doesn't know when to pack it in.
In just the last week, he's gone on national television in an effort to tear down President Obama's agenda -- saying the President's economic programs will be "devastating to our society" and that his foreign policy makes us seem "weak" to the rest of the world.
I don't know about you, but I think it's time for him to stop sniping from the sidelines and let President Obama usher in the changes Americans demanded after eight years of Cheney's disastrous policies. That's why I want Cheney to go back home to Wyoming, and why I want you to help me get him there.
Will you help pay for Cheney's bus fare? A one-way ticket from Washington, DC to Jackson, WY costs $202 -- will you chip in to help us buy one for him?
Normally, when a Vice President leaves office with a disastrous legacy and the support of less than one quarter of the public, I'd expect him to keep out of the spotlight.
But with the Republican "Party of No" out of ideas and without any new leaders to provide real solutions, failed leaders like Dick Cheney and Karl Rove have once again taken the helm of the GOP.
While President Obama has been working to tackle America's biggest issues, Cheney has been busy bashing the President in nationally-televised interviews -- warning about a "vast expansion of the deficit" and agreeing with Sean Hannity that the President is "naive."
This all from a man who after eight years in office left the country with two wars, a sky-rocketing deficit, rising unemployment, and an unprecedented financial meltdown.
If there's one person who should understand the crucial need to get this country back on track, it should be the man who took it so disastrously off course -- but he doesn't seem to get the message.
That's why we need to help him off the national stage and back home to Wyoming. Please take a look at the itinerary we put together and then chip in to get him on a Greyhound bus out of town:
Thank you for your help,
Jen O'Malley Dillon
