Dick Cheney And Hannity Agree That Questions About The Government Spying On Americans Are Just Partisan Politcs. Oh, and Iraq is “A Remarkable Success Story.”

Reported by Ellen - January 12, 2006

Dick Cheney, apparently too chicken to face Alan Colmes, was interviewed by Sean Hannity alone last night on Hannity & Colmes. Speaking of the Alito confirmation hearings, Hannity said, “It’s clear that (Democrats) want to make the issue of presidential power a big part of these hearings, I would argue to politicize it, and bring up the issue of NSA spying.”

Cheney first said there are “legitimate issues obviously involved in a lot of these questions." But then he added, “I think the focus on that issue of the NSA program in part is generated because they haven’t found anything else they can go after him on… I think it’s all part and parcel of an effort by some of the outside groups aided and abetted by some of the members of the committee to try to find some excuse to vote against what obviously is a top quality nominee.”

A little bit later, he told Hannity, “We’ve had a lot of good news out of Iraq." He called it, “A remarkable success story.” Kind of like "the last throes of the insurgency?"
