The most effective Vice President in History!
Vice President Cheney is the only man in the Bush Administration more despised by the left than President Bush. No doubt the reason is because he has been the most effective Vice President in history. And as with President Bush, history will likely be kind to Dick Cheney.
Throughout this week of the Bush Thankathon, I've tried to convey the sense of history and events great and small through photographs. The following tells the story of Dick Cheney's service to our nation during these last eight years.
The Most Experienced National Security Vice President in History
Dick Cheney had many years experience in government before becoming Vice President. He first entered government in the Nixon Administration in 1969, served as White House Chief of Staff under Gerald Ford, became a member of Congress after 1977 rising to House Minority Whip in 1988. He served the Administration of President George H.W. Bush as Secretary of Defense from 1989 to 1993.
No man could be better prepared for the trials and challenges which quickly engulfed the Bush Administration in 2001.
