Forget the Guy He Shot, We're Supposed to Feel Sorry for Warm, Caring, Forthcoming Dick Cheney

Reported by Melanie - February 14, 2006

Ron Christie, a rising African-American spinmeister for the radical right of the radical right, was a guest today (February 14, 2006) on Your World w/Neil Cavuto. Cavuto introduced Christie by again blaming the media for the fix Dick Cheney is in, saying that the White House press corp is "again beating a dead horse" about "why they were not told right away about his accident." Cavuto whined (incorrectly, I might add) that "not one person" bothered to ask "how Dick Cheney is feeling about all this. After all, he is a human being..."

Christie, a "former Cheney advisor" (can you imagine anyone advising Dick Cheney?) laid it on thick, describing Cheney in a way that did not compute. Responding to Cavuto's question about what might be "going through" Cheney's mind, Christie said, "Well, Dick Cheney is a very nice man. A very warm individual." He's a "very caring person...I'm quite certain that the Vice President is very concerned." He's a "very warm, very caring guy."

Cavuto wondered if Cheney should say something publicly about the incident and Christie said, "No." He said Cheney's "a very forthcoming guy but this was a private accident." Again, he said, "Dick Cheney is a very nice guy...very down to Earth, very personable...not the person who's often demonized in the media."

This went on for three or four minutes.

Comment: What are we, blind? Does Christie describe the Dick Cheney you've seen shuffling around for the last five year? Of course not. This is obviously another attempt by the Bush administration to create their own reality and to foist it on all of us. And another thing, since when does Fox News care about anyone who gets into trouble? The unemployed, those without health insurance, those without savings, the residents of New Orleans - they're all supposed to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and shut up. If they have a problem it's their own damn fault. Fox's hypocrisy is mind-blowing.
