I admire former Vice President Dick Cheney. Why? Because he has a love for our nation that cannot be described. He also speaks from his heart and can communicate his message without the necessity of an electronic gadget. He doesn't have to keep moving his head back and forth scanning a prepared text displayed on a screen or several screens within his reach and give the impression that he is speaking to those it appears he is looking at. Dick Cheney is no fraud and speaks not from scripts or prepared "here's what you say when" pre-arranged and entered verbiage.
He says what he means and means what he says. He has never, to my knowledge, changed his tune upon the change in direction of the prevailing winds and scoffs at opinion polls and those that live by them. He knows, as most of us know, pollsters' primary mission in life is to sway public opinion and not report on public opinion.
