Cheney and the Right Wing Traitors - Anything for big business. Party and cronies before America. Rip-off the population, screw the environment, screw the troops, screw up the economy, spy on Americans, fire judges who are not republican, secret meetings with oil companies to design energy policy, lie, lie, lie, refuse to testify under oath, refuse to honor summons. Blame anybody and everybody else. Swift-boaters and flip-floppers all. TRAITORS.

What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way.

So the truth wasn't convenient to Mr. Cheney so he had it removed? No surprise there. This is the most criminalistic administration in our nation's history.

Now I know why all my Republican leaning friends don't believe in human influenced global climate change, their leaders don't provide them with all the information.

Our future went the way of the toilet when Bush, Cheney, Connie et al took office. However, we now have a chance to take it all back!

More red meat for the liberal lemmings.

Get over yourselves. You've been pushing irresponsible theories on how horrible big business is for decades in hopes of a more socialist economy.

Whether its global warming, the MIC, the PIC, imperialism, on and on and on.

Thank god our govt. doesn't go with knee jerk left leaning theories and base policy around them.

You could've just summed this up with "I don't care"....
That being said, this isn't a national security issue where an enemy may discover some secret that could undermine us in the "war on terror", this is an official taking it upon himself to edit that which should be transparently seen by the citizens of the United States of America. I mean, people forget but, WE ARE ACTUALLY HIS BOSS!!!

When Government can knowingly allow Corporations to kill We The People and do nothing to warn,inform and protect We The People,then We The People have a Government just as guilty as the Corporations,for killing us.Some folks live in lala land where reality is not a function and most are called sheeple.Nothing matters but what we the people leave behind for our children and theirs.People on oxegyn,suffering and dying from air that is deadly.Who's responsible???For killing those folks?I tell all who will listen to stay away from Libby Mt as Libby is not safe to anything that breathes.For the childrens sake...

I don't understand how anyone could be a conservative these days. I just don't get it. They continue to support Bush/Cheney and their policies, they just look the other way, ignore it, and blame anyone else but themselves for every problem that is CLEARLY their own fault. It is just wrong and pathetic. Only in America.

Another day, another part of the Bush legacy comes into focus.

And another reason a third Bush term in the person of John McCain would be folly.

It certainly seems the administration is continuing its long standing blocking of the publics right to know what is happening in this country.

The CDC made the changes, not Cheney's office. Burnett even said himself that he, as the liason between the white house and the EPA, refused to persuade the CDC to do so.
This is a half baked story to get the left wingers riled up and fit in with your conspiracy theories.
The left wing press plays you guys like a fiddle.
JDAZ you're an ignorant twit if you think the CDC doesn't rattle Cheney's sword. You talk about fine print, but clearly you don't have the intellect to "read between the lines" of the fine print you [email protected] philistine.

They either lost the election or weren't nominated in the first place.

The Bush Administration has been publicly accused by both individual scientists and groups of falsifying and suppressing results it doesn't like. People reelected them anyway.

I say that the people have spoken, and Bush, Cheney, et al should be allowed to do whatever they want. Maybe when major environmental (and economic) damage lasting generations is done, people will pay more attention to who they nominate and vote for. Republican or Democrat isn't the issue, just paying attention to whio you raise up.

Good for Cheney. Global warming is a political movement not based on true science. There are more scietists debunking this myth than supporting it. When will you morons wake up and realise that GW is just another ploy to tax, grow government and take away personal freedom.

Cheyney did the right thing.
Man has no impact on global warming.
We can't do anything about it. Absolutely no proof that we could.
If he wanted erroneous information held out - so much the better.
The liberal left will see it differently - That's their problem.

Cheney is right. There is no such think as climate change. It's a lot of hype to get people to waste money. Scientist are just getting grant money for this sort of stuff. They should work on something more important like stem cell research. Forget about this environmental stuff, it will take care of itself.

Now I know where to find all the Bush lied lemming. If your tired of being lied to then stop listening to what all those people in the news have been telling you and start doing for yourselves. Start by reading material from both sides of the argument and actually think things through in a rationa manner. Then go back and read about the past enviromental problems and see how what they were predicting half a century ago came out.

It seems mighty strange that the Executive branch of the government would want to control what an agency of the Executive branch testifies to. I think this calls for a Congressional investigation.

Hell, let's just impeach the bastard and get it over with.
