I'm not going to defend Kennedy. I'm not going to defend Cheney. Both actions were wrong, but it's reasonable to believe anyone involved in a car accident can become disoriented, and even go into a mild form of shock.
It's the old republican strategy...can't defend the actions of Cheney, change the subject and attack another Dem to take the focus off the issue at hand.
Cheney was at fault..he didn't follow gun safety...he'd been drinking that day ( was that why he delayed reporting the story?) and the man didn't even have the proper license. Anyone else would face a hefty fine.
And as Jon Stewart alluded too....when Cheney said he delayed the story to make sure of accuracy...you mean like he made sure of the accuracy of WMD? LOL

Navy Pride said:That is like saying Michael Moore is a Conservative........
You know I only saw F911 a couple of months ago... only because quasi-patriots like yourself were so opposed to it.
It was somewhat enlightening... I see why you are so quick to act like it is complete balogna.
I did object to the movie in the sense that it played a subjective role in which emotions should lend an ear to what's best for our nation. I disagreed with the whole emotional basis of the movie.
However, Moore did make light of the economic right/left tribulation which did serve to expose that Bush is the boogeyman. I actually already knew that much so it was somewhat redundant.
I can see the fallacy that moderate conservatives see in the movie, however I do not deny the truths regarding the collusion betwenn the Bin Ladens and the Bushes. Aside from that I know a little more about the "situation" than Michael Moore did.
But have a hayday. I'm not here to defend Michael Moore... I'm here to defend our nation from cognitive hacks. (not you, you're a pea in a pod).

What penalty did Clinton get for lying under oath? Just based on that Cheney should get nothing.
What penalty did Kennedy get for leaving the scene then running to Hyannisport to hide?
Conflict said:I haven't said a damn thing about Cheney's hunting accident. As a matter of fact I think democrats are blowing the situation way out of proportion.
However, as a centrist, I must adhere to the fact that if a person was (hypothetically) drinking while hunting, and shot a fellow hunter... a charge of wreckless endangerment would be in order for any "regular citizen".
I drink when I hunt, however, I've never shot anybody while doing so.
