In recent days, soon to be no longer Vice President Dick Cheney has used his final round of media interviews to make sure everybody understands that all the illegal, morally questionable and controversial things George W. Bush did as president, were all decisions Bush made for himself :
“The notion that somehow I was pulling strings or making presidential-level decisions. I was not,” he said.Which is Cheney's way of saying: "Don't look at me, I didn't do it!"
“There was never any question about who was in charge. It was George Bush. And that’s the way we operated. This whole notion that somehow I exceeded my authority here, was usurping his authority, is simply not true. It’s an urban legend, never happened.”
