    Why doesn't SOMEBODY please pen Dick Cheney down about his involvement with Haliburton and their dealings with the war in Iraq? I would love to hear how long the pause would be after that question in his attempt to evade the question.

    Mr. Gergen, Thank you for challenging Ed Rollins after his insulting comment " Cheney made Colin Powell". What a bunch of bull dooky! I don't remember Mr. Five Deferments Cheney shielding Gen. Powell from bullets during the his tours of duty in Vietnam.

    I still am astonished and taken aback that Rollins made that comment with a straight face. I'm curious, who the hell made Ed Rollins? Gen. Powell fought for a country, that at the time wouldn't fight for him. He put his life on the line, when has Cheney or Rollins ever put their lives in the line of fire?

    Having grown up in the south all my life, this smacks of good ole fashioned Jim Crow thinking; I made you boy!

    Cheney is not on the attack....he's on the defense...if the Obama group would quit mentioning them they could govern.....good for Cheney... and that ticks CNN off....or should I say Rahm Emanuel, Belago, Carville and former CNN employees who work for the White House. Frankly I felt safer with him and Bush...their biggest agenda was national security...I won't fault them for that..I applaud them. The recession ...Fannie and Freddie collapse...I blame Chris Dodd, Barney Franks, Maxine Waters, Meeks, Davis and Clay. Remember they didn't want the "financial lynching of Franklin Raines"... hey those creepy left are still in power... Cheney is just defending himself and this nation.

    Why doesn't someone ask Cheney the hard questions? In 1994 an Al-Qaeda's plan to hijack airplanes and crash them into buildings was captured. Why did no one then or after (pre 9-11) create a policy to not allow hijacked planes to crash into buildings?

    Why did Chaney spend so much time trying to get the CIA to release information on WMD in Iraq?

    Why does Cheney believe we don't need to follow laws on torture?

    Why does no one investigate the Cheney – Halliburton link and it's dealing with Iraq pre and after 2001?

    Is this a surprise? I think NOT. What else does Dick "Attack" Cheney do?
