To liberals, after Don Rumsfeld, Vice President Dick Cheney is the anti-Christ. I think he speaks well. Referring to Kerry's appeal for a "more sensitive war," Cheney responded, "Those who threaten us and kill innocents around the world do not need to be treated more sensitively. They need to be destroyed." YES - a man who agrees with me! Cheney alsointoned a list of insensitive but victorious American warriors and suggested that "sensitivity" would be correctly read as weakness.

About Kerry's latest mantra, "the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time," Mr. Cheney claimed he'd heard that song before. He recalled how that very position had been put forth by Howard Dean early in the campaign, and that Mr. Kerry had himself criticized it. Cheney reminded his audience that Kerry had rebutted Dean, saying, "Those who doubted whether Iraq or the world would be better off without Saddam Hussein...don't have the judgment to be president or the credibility to be elected president."

With his many years in the nation's capital, Cheney sees Kerry's continual position changing on the war as a first. "In all the national campaigns that I've watched up close, I've never seen a candidate go back and forth so many times on a single issue. His back-and-forth reflects a habit of indecision and sends a message of confusion." Kerry, Cheney later concluded, lacks "deeply held convictions about right and wrong."

From the wonderful Federalist.
