Perhapse they were planing to do it anyway, and when they heard Cheney was at the base decided to say it was an assasination attempt, so that they could go on about how Americas leaders are not safe from their wrath. After all, a failed assasination attempt sounds better than "Chaney was in there? Really? damn!"

As much as I despise Cheney, him dying in an horrific suicide bombing assassination will only do more harm than good. It will just be further fodder for more U.S. involvement in the Middle East, and possibly be the push Bush needs to send over the amount of troops into Iraq he had originally hoped for.

Maybe some of you folks should be rooting against the guys who are blowing up innocent Afghans and targetting elected officials...if this was happening in your home town you wouldn't be so flippant about it. You may not like Cheney but he's a democrat and he's doing his best to protect the republic, whereas the terrorists killing women and kids at random are truly evil scumbags.

A) He is no Democrat, he is a pure Republican. the Prince of Darkness, Duke of Destruction the list goes on and on regarding how bad this guy is.

I have no respect for those sorts of people that target innocent non combatants in their religious wars, and I have about the same level of respect for Penguin.

And this is coming from the guy who berated others for not being "nice" about the death of Anna Nicole Smith? I love the smell of irony.

Considering that congress currently is controlled by the Democrats and there being a strong opposition against it, as well as the plan seeming somewhat stalled at the moment, it would seem quite the contrary.

You did notice the lower-case 'd', didn't you? As for "Prince of Darkness [...]", I hope that was tongue-in-cheek, otherwise you need to spend less time on transfan boards and more time in the real world. Much as people love to bash the other side in partisan hate-fests, Democrats and Republicans are all democrats, and Islamists are all our enemies. It's not the other political party that is the threat, it's the guys who want to destroy every political party and replace it with a theocracy. Remember that.

Most of what I say politically is tounge in cheek when it comes to titles such as that. Chaney isn't exactly the democraticly elected official that he thinks he is. He and his partner were appointed and have manuvered many things to remain in power for profit. And I'd rag on a Democrat if they pulled the same stunts as have been forced upon the US and indeed the world over the past 6 years. I have little respect for people who violate the US constitution that are actually in positions to enforce it. Islamists are not our enemies, lets get that out there at this point. The Extreme views of Islam, indeed the real extreme view... fring bordering on whako views are the bad guys. And its not just Islamic Fundamentalists who do not have any sort of tolerence towards anyone who thinks differently, its Christian Fundamentalists, Jewish Fundamentalists... indeed Fundamentalism in general is our greatest foe.

Actually, we do know that. It's the same thing he's been doing the last six years.

Im quite suprised by the utter hatred some of you have. To wish death on people is quite amazing. I hate Nancy Palosi, Harry Reed, John Murtha, Hilary Clinton and the rest of those double faced morons. But I would never wish for someone to kill them.If somebody were to kill them I would be outraged and I would protest....

Purely amazing.

You know it's amazing too me. The people making statements and cheering on death marks on this site is appalling.

Do you well informed masses realize that if the FCC, where to read these statements of anti-American and agreement towards the death of someone in an elected office of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, it could be deemed as a terroristic threat which is a federal crime.

And could look badly on this site and on Ryan himself.

Your sheer brilliance is amazing.

I got a bottle of champaign ready to crack open should they succeed next time. 8)

and like someone else said, I dispise politicians that violate people's rights, freedoms and privacys, all for the sake of so-called protection. Plus I feel LESS safe more than before.

I am more afraid of the people in the white house and what part of the Constitution they are going to shit on next, not a bunch of fundamentalist, goat rapping, kamakazi Ali Baba rejects. I don't like either, but the overlords in Washington are the ones I am more worried about. :-P

One thing at a time, dude. :grin:

Just remember, Dubya's just a puppet because he is too stupid otherwise, and Cheney and the rest of the Administration's pulling the strings.

But we can always hope.

I'll just need to get more champaign :lol:

On that note I have to admit the american people have done pretty good for not having any leaders. This past year's been mostly an incompitant commitite that shifts blame and makes things worse.

Hey you guys ... I don't care what side of the fence you ride on, this is an actual living human being that was supposedly the target of a terrorist attack. Not to mention the people who were actually killed during this incident (23 is it?). Can you guys at least show some decency and respect for the situation at hand? This might be one of those topics that if you don't have anything nice to say, you might be best saying nothing at all.
