Bush Declares That Cheney Is ‘The Best Vice President In History’

During his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this morning, President Bush told the crowd of raucous right-wing activists that he “appreciates the fact that” they “invited Vice President Cheney” to speak.
Between intermittent cheers of “four more years,” Bush told the crowd, Cheney “is the best vice president in history.”
Watch it at Moderate Video.

While Bush’s chosen superlative for Cheney may be “best vice president” ever, history is likely to take another view. For instance, Cheney’s biographer Stephen Hayes describes him as “the most secretive” vice president in history.

The American people may have a different opinion as well. In a recent opinion poll, only 28 percent of Americans approved of the job Cheney is doing as vice president. Additionally, over 221,000 Americans have signed a petition calling for Congress to begin impeachment hearings against him.

    Bush is so out to lunch, it’s beyond belief. And I say this as a Republican that actually voted for him.

    You’ve got to be kidding me. That Dick Cheney may have been the best of the worse Vice-Presidents in history.
