Gerald Ford's Legacy: Cheney and Rumsfeld

“Gerald Ford is gone, but he lives on in two of his key appointees: Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney. Their impact on America today is greater than Ford's, who died Tuesday at 93.

Ford appointed Rumsfeld his chief of staff when he took office after Nixon's resignation in 1974. The next year, when he made the 42-year-old Rumsfeld the youngest secretary of defense in the nation's history, he named 34-year-old Dick Cheney his chief of staff, also the youngest ever.

Those two Ford appointees worked together ever since. The Bush White House assertion of unchecked presidential power stems from the lessons they drew from their experience of working for the weakest president in recent American history. "For Dick and Don," Harold Meyerson wrote in The American Prospect last July, "the frustrations of the Ford years have been compensated for by the abuses of the Bush years."


Ford also named a new head of the CIA – a former Texas congressman named George H. W. Bush. Thus you could also credit also Ford with launching the Bush dynasty.

It was during Ford's presidency that the last Americans left Vietnam – that photo of them struggling to get into that chopper on the roof of the Saigon embassy remains our most powerful image of American defeat, and it shadows our current debate about how to get out of Iraq.

Ford did leave one positive legacy, as Meyerson reminds us: his supreme court appointee, John Paul Stevens. Few remember it today, but when the Court majority appointed Bush president in December, 2000, Stevens wrote a blistering dissent, damning the other Republican appointees for their blatant partisanship. And this year Stevens wrote the majority opinion in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld declaring that the military tribunals at Guantanamo violated the Geneva Convention.

But we wouldn't need Stevens if we didn't have Rumsfeld, Cheney and Bush--that's the legacy of Gerald Ford.”


END OF PASTE - AND CITATION.



HOW GULLIBLE ARE WE?


The beginning of the BUSH DYNASTY - THIRTY - 30 - YEARS AGO!

Republicans SNOWED US THEN - and RE-SNOWED us again!

What short memories the American Public has!

BUSH STOLE THE 2000 ELECTION - and guess what?

The stupid SHEEP re-elected him and his CRONIES AGAIN - and for what?

Iraqi Freedom? Iraqi Democracy? The so-called ‘War on Terrorism’?

Had absolutely NOTHING to do with - OIL - and the Texas Oil Barons - DID IT?

I strongly suggest that you rent and watch the Documentary -

“BLOOD FOR OIL” ...

YOUR - Sons and Daughters - Mothers and Fathers - Sisters and Brothers -
Aunts and Uncles - Cousins - Friends - Neighbors - HELL - Even Strangers -

Cut down in their Prime - KILLED - MAIMED - DISABLED - PTSD ...

AND - those lucky enough to return HOME - IGNORED BY THE ADMINISTRATION and the VETERANS ADMINISTRATION !!!

Families Ruined - Mortgage Foreclosures - Homes Lost - Jobs Lost -
Benefits Lost - DIGNITIES LOST!

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF NEW “STREET PEOPLE” GAINED!

FOR WHAT? WHY? - So a handful of Rich SOB’s could put money IN THEIR POCKETS!

THE APATHY AND STUPIDITY OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC MAKES ME WANT TO PUKE!

DUMB ENOUGH TO STAND IDLY BY -
AND ALLOW ALL THE “BAIL-OUTS!

APATHETIC ENOUGH TO - NOT DEMAND -
BAIL-OUTS FOR THE LITTLE PEOPLE AND THEIR FAMILIES!

“OH, PLEASE - PLEASE -
SAVE THE BIG THREE!”

AUTOS & OIL = COLLUSION!

How gullible? Welcome to President Obama. Speaking of bail-outs, he and his democrat cronies weren't about to be out spent by the Republican's - 5 times that of George Bush. But more than that, freedom itself is all but lost. Hail Obama!

The United States of Apathy, that should be the new name, best yet, give the country back to the Native American people, they know how to manage a country for thousands of years without making a mess of it, and when the push come to shove...as Custer how his push did.

How gullible??? We just elected Obama, the George W of the left. If we're no gullible, then I guess we just enjoy pain.
