More Lies - By The Way is Bush Running Again?

Look, I have my problems with some of President Bush's decision's, mainly the lack of conservative domestic policy - Not to Mention attempting to include liberals in on the "domestic policies" like it will accomplish anything! However, if the President or Vice President are "dumb and evil" as Mr Rutten would want you to believe - Why would there be a need to lie about what either said?

Well I guess the MSM still believe they are running against Bush in this years election.
Tim Rutten lied - Period!
Meanwhile, in another part of the city, Vice President Dick Cheney was addressing the meat-eaters at the Conservative Political Action Conference. He told them that he was glad the administration had tortured people and that he'd do it again: "Would I support those same decisions again today? You're damn right I would."

Let's look at what VP Cheeny actually said by looking at the transcript:
The United States is a country that takes human rights seriously. We do not torture -- it's against our laws and against our values.
From the very morning our nation was attacked on 9/11, the President of the United States has had to make some immensely enormous decisions. Every day he faces responsibilities that others would pale before. I've been there with him. I've seen him make the tough calls, and then weather the criticism and take the hits. President Bush has been tough and courageous. He's made the right decisions for the right reasons, and he always reflects the best values of the American people. I've been proud to stand by him and by the decisions he's made. And I would support those same -- and would I support those same decisions again today? You're damn right I would.
Not quite what Mr. Rutten reported is it? Go figure!
