Condi to replace Cheney

[size=+1]Report: Vice president likely to step down 'due to his health'[/size]

Vice President **** Cheney likely will step down next year due to health reasons and be replaced by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, according to a report by geopolitical expert Jack Wheeler. On his website, To the Point,[/font] Wheeler reports there's a "red-breasted rumor bird" flying around Capitol Hill that has whispered the same thing to most congressional committee chairmen.

"We all know that **** Cheney has been the best vice president of modern times, perhaps in American history," one such chairman told Wheeler. "And we know that he absolutely will not run for president in 2008. Further, he has an unfortunate history of heart trouble. So let's just say none of us will be surprised if, sometime next year, he will step down from the vice presidency due to his health."

Continued the source: "Should this happen, President Bush would need to appoint his replacement, just as Richard Nixon chose Gerald Ford to replace Spiro Agnew. It is quite clear to us whom the president would choose should he need to: Condoleezza Rice."

Wheeler goes on to analyze what such a scenario would mean for the 2008 presidential election.

Writes Wheeler: "Being a sitting vice president places Condi in an impregnable position for the GOP nomination in 2008 and sucks every breath of wind from Hillary's sails. Historically, it's hard for a party to keep the White House after they've had it for eight years. This is George Bush and **** Cheney's way to buck history – and make it." Serving as Bush's national security adviser during his first term, Rice took over the State Department last month.

There was talk of this possibly happening before the 2004 election. If this takes place, it will be an exciting and historic election campaign in 08.

A bit off the topic of Condi. But lets apply that philosophy to other policies. i.e. Those who support raising taxes should pay the highest first.

How about those who support the war should pay for it?

I see. Sounds like you want to make the argument that those who wish to increase taxes to reduce the debt and pay for the war be the ones to pay the increase first? How does that make any sense?

The argument was made that the Bush girls should go to Iraq since their father supports/sent troops to fight. So if you support paying down the dept and think tax increases is the ONLY way to do it then take the initiative and show us how to get by with less money. Something congress says they can't do but expect others to.

And your argument was "A bit off the topic of Condi. But lets apply that philosophy to other policies. i.e. Those who support raising taxes should pay the highest first." And what I'm saying is that sounds like you want those who want to pay for things to be the first to do the paying, but expect everyone to be supportive of the things you want supported, i.e the war.

Yep, you said all that. You also said: "There was talk of this possibly happening before the 2004 election. If this takes place, it will be an exciting and historic election campaign in 08." I think all presidential elections are historic, though possibly not that exciting.

Condi might make a better VP then Cheney. IMO. It would certainly give the GOP a leg up on the 08' race. Which, I think, is the point you're making.

I have been behind Condi for President since the beginning, but I think this is a rumor the site recruiting her is promoting to get her name out there. She is gaining momentum daily. :p She is going to be an awesome President! :D

Could be rumor. WorldNetDaily, the site reporting, aren't exactly known for their excellence in journalism. If they made the national news everytime they pulled something like "Rathergate" they'd be on the front page almost daily.

Speaking of election 2008, sadly, fellow leftists, we lack a very good candidate for prez. Hillary Clinton is the frontrunner currently (a known moderate). Of course, there is a bright spot - John Edwards is pretty good.

Hillary if far from moderate, but she is moving toward the middle, so she might try a run. Wouldn't that be an exciting race! Condi vs Hillary ! Edwards is a non starter.

Hillary's more moderate then the conservatives give her credit for being. The conservative media outlets such as FNC news miss no opportunity to make her look like a clown. It's the same thing that liberal media does to make Bush look like he's a moron. He's not, she's not.

Edwards may be more of a starter than you think. He's got some momentum and backers left from the 2004 race. And probably even more importantly he's got cash left.

What about McCain?

This seems like a prime field for him to succeed in.

She is pro death/pro gay marriage/pro higher taxes and wants universal health care. You can't get more liberal than that.

I don't see that at all. No one under estimates her political ability. If you are calling Fox, conservative media, you are mistaken. They have conservatives on to counter liberals and vise versa. You see it as leaning right because they are the first media outlet to even give us a voice.

I agree. The reason Fox is resisted so much is because Liberals can't stand a form that makes them look so insane.

I spent years watching NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, etc... but none of them come close to Fox on the fair and balanced side. This is a fact. Every show they have shows both sides of the issue. I am a devoted Fox watcher. However, ever once in a while I will watch the others just to remind myself of why I watch Fox.

I know you guy are not going to believe this, so I'm probably wasting my breath but Fox is constantly lying. Sorry but that's just the way it is. Just the way CBS used forged doc's in their story about Bush National Guard record. Fox is nothing but political pornography. It's fair and balanced the same way politicians never lie.

Fox has not had any major reporting scandals like CBS and NBC. CBS had the forged docs, NBC rigged pick-ups to explode to get the result they wanted for a story. If there has been an incident where Fox has bended or tilted the truth to make an outcome they wanted I haven't seen it.

Then I'm going to guess you get most if not all your news from Fox. There's a ton of stuff out there about Fox's constant lying. So much now that other major networks no longer even report Fox's representions. Go to any book store or library and get "Lies and lying lairs" by Franken. Or rent the DVD "Outfoxed" or just do a Goggle search using the words "fox lies." That should keep you busy for a week or two.

I view this statement like I view the statements that people make about Bush went to war for personal financial gain. I think its an attack against something that doesn't agree with their opinion and people feel they must destroy it.

If Fox is "constantly lying" then every other media outlet (NBS, CBS, ABC, CNN, etc...) would headline it every day. They would drum up scandal after scandal against Fox. Call for a Congressional independent counsel to investagate. Especially after the Rather thing busted CBS so bad. Fox has no friends with the other news outlets especially since Fox is kicking there butts in the ratings. They would love nothing more than to see Fox go down. However, guess what, there is no scandal. No smoking gun.

Yeah! I remember that major scandal!! Oh, wait, that was CBS. Never mind.

The guy who wrote that book is a die hard liberal as are probably most of the websites you refer to. That would be like OBL writing a book on Bush.

What you are suggesting is what you want to believe but it's not real.

As previously stated in another tread, If there was a conspiracy on Fox then every other media would be all over it. It would headline every where. Especially after the CBS/Rather deal. It's just not there. I know you want it to be but it isn't. Fox present both sides with experts from the liberal/moderate/conservative side. Watch tonight and you will see.

Thor and Batman are right, Pacridge. The liberals in charge of the party are so furious at losing power to Republicans there is an all out war to discredit everything they say and do. Before Fox, they went after Rush telling people he lied. The only ones charged with any crime have been on the left.
