Bush just wants run away and not talk about the damage his administration caused the country while following Republican policies. Cheney is just trying to settle old scores. When the Bush administration lied about nuclear weapons, Cheney felt that under no circumstances should he ever apologize to the American people. This is why he downs Rice. I for one, hopes both he and Bush become more engaged with the political process. Along with the two of them, add in "Jobs Jobs Jobs" and the other spectacular work Republicans have done to bring down the economy, and Americans will have a clear choice for the next election.
