Little known to the public, that office tells the president and his subordinates what they can and can't do under existing law. Cheney warned about the possibility that other nations, such as Iraq, Iran, and North Korea, would acquire nuclear components after the Soviet collapse. Many of Cheney's major decisions resulted from the almost daily meetings he had in the Pentagon with Powell and Atwood. Not enough, but this administration and Vice President Gore and I have had both a long-term strategy to develop energy independence and a short-term strategy. Bernie, it has been a very, very difficult area to work in for a long time.
Richard B. Cheney
We will suffer more casualties in the next conflict if we don't look to those basic fundamental problems now. They can pass it on to their kids if they want. I'm not going to indulge in negative personal attacks. The fact of the matter is we live in a free society, and freedom means freedom for everybody. You're asking me to invoke the moderator's discussion?
My mind is open to taking some action that will address those elements of unfairness while respecting the traditional religious and civil institution of marriage. As a former White House chief of staff and a former defence secretary, Dick Cheney may seem like a figure from the political past, but he has always been identified as a man with a big political future. That says a lot about the character of this nation and the goodness of you, the American people. Instead of promoting policies, Cheney now worked to prevent the undoing of policies already in place. And that is a set of qualifications that Governor Bush found attractive when he selected me. And Governor Bush and I want to make absolutely certain that the first thing we do is guarantee the continuation of those payments, those benefits and keep those promises that were made.
We had put them back in the box, so to speak. Average testing scores are up and a lot of extraordinary work is being done by tens of thousands of parents, teachers and administrators all around America. I'm proud of those partnerships. They add another huge obligation on top of it that future generations will have to pay. Haven't seen anything yet in the Senate.
