O'Neill said he tried to warn Vice President Dick Cheney that growing budget deficits... posed a threat to the economy. Cheney cut him off.

A month later, Cheney told the Treasury secretary he was fired.

I am amused that your last six posts were about something you think is a piffle.

Slow news week dude. It was either this or Bo the dog.

Besides, you guys have been complaining that the event didn't get enough coverage by liberals!

It got PLENTY of coverage by liberals. Just no NEWS coverage. But I am surprised that Bo the dog doesn't thrill you. You guys are usually so gobsmacked by what the Messiah does.

News coverage, in this case, covering the event without question. Maybe airing the speeches in their entirity. Perhaps just throwing the EPKs on the air, if there had been enough organization to produce EPKs.
