Fight Or Flight..?

Where Will Cheney Be?
Will the vice president even be in town to testify.

Cheney's To-Do Lists, Then and Now

Returning to the White House after the Memorial Day weekend in 1975, the young aide Dick Cheney found himself handling a First Amendment showdown. The New York Times had published an article by Seymour M. Hersh about an espionage program, and the White House chief of staff, Donald H. Rumsfeld, was demanding action.

Out came the yellow legal pad, and in his distinctively neat, deliberate hand, Mr. Cheney laid out the "problem," "goals" while addressing it, and "options." These last included "Start FBI investigation - with or w/o public announcement. As targets include NYT, Sy Hersh, potential gov't sources." <

Oh, Fitz. Cheney will never appear before you because you scare him. You have integrity and intelligence, two things in short supply in D.C..

He should be asked if he wants to go buck naked in a pair of tennis shoes while people prepare to hunt or testify. He knows the game. It appears that is all this monster really understands.

"Fitz, tell us your secret. Just what is it about you that makes people foam at the mouth?
(is it the Old Spice?)"

LOL! God, I hope not! I hope Fitz let go of the Old Spice. Otherwise, that would be a great way to clear the court!

Fitz is the manliest man to hit the courts in a century ... comfortable in his own skin, sharp as a tack, and - at once - shy and in your face. Love him, love him, love him.

Bring the cabal down, as best they will let you.

The Cheney Presidency: Libby Trial Reveals "Total Involvement" Of VP
Associate Press | February 11, 2007 04:28 PM

"What didn't he touch? It's almost like there was almost nothing too trivial for the vice president to handle," said New York University professor Paul Light, an expert in the bureaucracy of the executive branch.

"The details suggest Cheney was almost a deputy president with a shadow operation. He had his own source of advice. He had his own source of access. He was making his own decisions," Light said.

Patrick Fitzgerald is a big guy and fast on his feet in court. One four inch binder? More like six and he scans over the stuff like a computer. Superior intelligence litterally pours from his eyes, it is kind of scary and I don't scare too easily

If Cheney goes up there he's toast as is Scooter. They may as well go down with a fight for the first time in their cowardly lives-but I'll be surprised if it happens.

Cheney doesn't understand how much people really dislike him and have for a long time! I'm sure sp will corner Cheney and Libby into taking the Fifth. Watch them cling to their rights then.

How they make me sick-but I still want to watch-its like a train wreck at this point...

No one can save Libby from being found guilty. Yes Wells has to try because that's his job. Cheney has to show face because of others who are watching and wondering if Cheney would let them hang as they have taken over Libby's job. If the Dickster doesn't defend his employee well others might realize they could be set up next as Cheney spreads the lies about Iran. That's why there's a fall out at the White House, all the employees are asked to commit crimes for Bush/Cheney then when they get caught Bush/Cheney leave them to hang while protecting themselves. As for Fitz vs Cheney well that's easy. Fitz is a real man vs Cheney who is a coward when facing a real man. Cast closed.

Dr Evil will not testify --
1) what does it serve other than possibly his ego, meaning he gets zero benefit
2) he is already caught in the morass of lies and 'spinmeistering' if that is a word, that he will mis-step
3) he has been 'rehearsed' on what to say... and that leads in to
4) rehearsed answers for Dr Evil?
eh, reminds me of the scene from
" A Few Good Men" when the arrogant Jack Nicholson character desires to say 'I said so' ... and hence the end of his career and the trial.

Life imitating art?

He'll not testify - and neither will Libby-

They are cornered by their own lies and epic deceit with the help of Team Fitz

All good-

I stand by my earlier prediction that neither Libby nor Cheney will testify. For Scooter, the risks of testifying go beyond whether or not he will be convicted. If Scooter lies on the stand and is convicted, he could spend more time in jail under the sentencing guidelines.

Cheney may be delusional and detached from reality, but he's not stupid enough to subject himself to cross examination by Fitz. (As someone who appreciates good theatrics, I hope that my prediction about Cheney is incorrect.)

I would bet Darth does an off site video and stays out of the courtroom. After all, he is a chickenhawk!

5 deferments = coward.
