"Bush I officials are nonplused by the apocalyptic and rash Cheney of Bush II" --Maureen Dowd, New York Times

A Tale of Two Fathers

By MAUREEN DOWD

WASHINGTON -- 

Quotes--

When Bush the Elder put Bush the Younger in the care of Dick Cheney, he assumed that Mr. Cheney, who had been his defense secretary in Desert Storm, would play the wise, selfless counselor. Poppy thought his old friend Dick would make a great vice president, tutoring a young president green on foreign policy and safeguarding the first Bush administration's legacy of internationalism, coalition-building and realpolitik.

Instead, Good Daddy has had to watch in alarm as Bad Daddy usurped his son's presidency, heightened its conservatism and rushed America into war on the mistaken assumption that if we just acted like king of the world, everyone would bow down or run away.

Bush I officials are nonplused by the apocalyptic and rash Cheney of Bush II, a man who pushed pre-emption and peered over the shoulders of C.I.A. analysts, as compared with the skeptical and cautious Cheney of Bush I (who did not even press to march to Baghdad in the first gulf war, when Saddam Hussein actually possessed chemical weapons).....

WASHINGTON, Sep 29 (IPS) -
 
In the 2000 elections he was the thoughtful, grey-haired Washington veteran who reassured nervous voters that candidate George W. Bush would indeed have adult supervision if he became president of the United States.

Calm, if intensely purposeful and focused, always substantive, and with virtually unmatched experience, Dick Cheney, who at age 34 had served as White House chief of staff under President Gerald Ford and later as defence secretary under Bush's father during the Gulf War, embodied competence and gravitas.

In addition to his government service, he had worked for several years as the CEO of one of the country's biggest and most profitable corporations.

You could trust him to round out Bush's own inexperience and curb his boyish enthusiasms, especially perhaps for Texas wildcatters, tax cuts, Christian fundamentalism, or baseball. His was the steady hand that communicated good old mainstream conservative Republicanism.
