    SARASOTA, Fla. - Vice President Dick Cheney on Friday stuck to the familiar themes of maintaining tax cuts and staying the course in the war on terror as reasons to keep President Bush's Republican allies in control of Congress.

    The midterm elections on Nov. 7 will have "enormous consequences for this nation one way or the other," Cheney told a crowd of about 200 people at a $1,000-a-plate luncheon to raise money for Republican congressional hopeful Vern Buchanan.

    "We have a president living in the White House who deserves a Congress that works with him, not against him," Cheney said. He urged the southwest Florida party faithful to get out the vote and keep the 13th District in Republican hands. Katherine Harris now holds the seat, but is running for U.S. Senate.

    ...

    "Dick Cheney's baseless remarks are nothing but a clear sign that he knows Republicans are in trouble, especially his buddy Vern Buchanan," said Adrienne Elrod, a spokeswoman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. "Democrats support lowering the high cost of gasoline, protecting the future of social security and a rational strategy for the war in Iraq."

    Of course you are kidding, right? Or are you just messing with the opposition? Move it back to where it was originally posted, WAR ON TERROR. This is not political. This is life and death and these questions should never be "Political".

    In no way does this belong in WOT. Actually it's a rant, so politics is the best we can do.

    This is a moderator decision, anymore complaints will be against rules. If you do not like it, go to admin.

    Why do you keep putting threads in the war on terror forum that clearly have nothing to do with the war on terror?

    And what exactly was so baseless about Cheney's remarks? This election does have enormous consequences for this nation one way or another. This election does have huge impact on whether we sustain the effort against terrorism or not. It does have a huge impact on whether or not we keep taxes where they are.

    So what exactly is baseless about what Cheney said?

    BTW, its the Democrats who have been yelling for years we need to pay more for gas. Its the Democrats who seem to think the Constitution is a suicide pact and expect us to fight a war with our hands and legs tied behind our back. Thats ration? its the Democrats who opposed protecting social security but refusing to fix it.

    this is so ridiculous.
