Hannity and Dick Cheney

Reported by Deborah - June 13, 2005

Hannity's one on one with Dick Cheney held no surprises for the viewers or Dick Cheney. Hannity steered clear of asking Cheney about any domestic issues and certainly there was nothing said about plunging poll numbers for the President. In fact, the conversation stayed on Iraq with side trips to Dean and Democrats.

Cheney's rhetoric about terrorists sounded identical to his campaign. Al Qaeda is gathering the most deadly weapons to use against us at any time because they hate our Country.
" They want to revert to the 7th century when Islamic Faith dominated the world."

When Hannity asked him about Amnesty International's Gulag comment and Newsweek's story , Cheney acted as if he had been encapsulated in that protective bubble sheltering this administration. Cheney somberly claimed that the Newsweek story started a demonstration in Afganistan resulting in the destruction of 400 Korans. Cheney warned that false stories like Newsweek's put people's lives in danger. No mention was made of the Pentagon report that followed later in the confirming the Newsweek story.

Of course, Hannity asked about Dean and Cheney made the comment we were expecting.
"He's over the top. Maybe his mother loved him but I don't know anyone who does. He never won anything as far as I can tell."

Cheney then claimed that Hillary is spending too much time with Dean.
Then he made reference to times when he, himself, used harsh language but it was okay because it was in private.Ignoring Hannity's question about Hillary's chances, he stated that any Republican nominated will be victorious in 2008.

After the interview Colmes immediately took issue with the line "He never won anything as far as I can tell." Hannity, who had played the nasty line about Dean over and over tonight,defended Cheney by saying. " He had a twinkle in his eye" which made the jab perfectly acceptable.Colmes was forced to laugh at Hannity's absurd notion.

comment: This interview was so predictable and phoney that it was a bigger waste of time then the 45 minutes spent on Michael Jackson beforehand.
