Mr Cheney told Vermont's senator, Patrick Leahy to "fuck yourself", after he apparently approached George Bush's number two for a chat. The vice president was furious about the Democrat's criticism of Halliburton and its close relationship to the Bush administration. The Texas company has won billions of dollars in contracts in the US "war on terror", doing everything from building the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay to reconstructing Iraq's southern oil fields.
Patrick Leahy of Vermont, who was on the receiving end of Cheney's ire, confirmed that the vice president used profanity during Tuesday's class photo. Using profanity on the Senate floor while the Senate is session is against the rules. But the Senate was technically not in session at the time and the normal rules did not apply, a Senate official said. Cheney, who as president of the Senate was present for the picture day, turned to Leahy and scolded the senator over his recent criticism of the vice president for Halliburton's alleged war profiteering. Cheney is the former CEO of Halliburton, and Democrats have suggested that while serving in the Bush administration he helped win lucrative contracts for his former firm, including a no-bid contract to rebuild Iraq.
When President Obama called Mitt Romney a "bullshitter" in the pages of Rolling Stone earlier this year, it set off a brief firestorm. Defenders of the Republican candidate were shocked — shocked! In truth, the halls of the White House like nearly every other house in the country, with the apparent exception of Romney's have heard no shortage of profanity over the decades. It's a dirty job, leading the free world. Sometimes it takes a few dirty words. Read on for a brief history of presidential and vice-presidential, and presidential candidate profanity. Honest Abe evidently loved a good off-color joke.
He may never want anything to do with Mormons or the church again. But he does want to get married to and to have kids. He says it is harmless and is only fantasy as there is no touching involved. The first time, the shrink said, "It is very common for a woman to divorce so their children WILL see their father more. I'll definitely talk with her about my concerns, and will be spending time with her family over the upcoming holidays so that will be a good chance to see how they treat me. I don't know what to really do to find time to be with him.
