While I believe we need the press to be watchdogs for us, this story, in terms of national importance, reminds me of Bush's bicycle accident: while it's of interest and needs to be reported for a lot of reasons, the fact that it took 24 hours for it to be disclosed means absolutely nothing to me. And after watching those A-Holes' behavior in the press conference, I'm not sure I'd ever tell any of them ANYTHING, if I were the VP. I know it wouldn't (or shouldn't) happen, but it'd serve 'em right if they only released news through Worldnet Daily or some other conservative news service.

Yeah as expected it has gotten way out of hand. Even Bush is getting drawn in as doing something wrong because he knew about it soon after it happened. HOW THE HECK CARES ! I say we don't give it anymore "air time " !

Let's just say I ain't a fan of the liberal media and/or the extreme left and I believe they will do whatever they can to "twist" the facts. But............ in this case one fact that don't need any twisting is that is was a huge screw-up on his part plain and simple and he "accidentally" shot a guy. On this very board as well as others I've seen ya'll rip some average Joe a new one when a hunting "accident" happens. Now, when the almighty #2 GOP man shoots somebody I'm hearing jokes about it and that it is the media's fault?

Not trying to make this political but I for one am becoming more and more un-impressed by the dudes running the show in this country........and I voted for them twice.

I agree that yesterday the media was at it's worst trying to make something from nothing. Hunting accidents suck. When the VP of the United States is involved, it's even worse, but yesterday it was complete nonsense.

Today however, is a different story. I just heard on the radio that the guy he shot has had a heart attack and is back in the ICU. If he dies, what do you think the media is going to do?

According to my calculations Mr Cheney turned 65 on 1/30/06

Might be a good time to start a movement that anyone over 65 doesn't need a hunting license. (Novel idea huh?) Especially for someone who has sacrificed 100% of their private life for 6 years to become a public servant, for PITTANCE compared to the personal sacrifice.

:bangin:

Ahmen! Not only is the pay a pittance when compared to his personal sacrifice it is chump change when compared to what he can and does make in the private sector.

Bust on the man if you will for making a stupid mistake, he is in the public eye and is expecting it I am sure.

But when it comes down to it he is a "public servant" who, no matter if you agree with his politics or not, has dedicated his life to bettering this country we all call home.

From the Fox News website:

On Monday, the state gave Cheney and Whittington warning citations for breaking Texas hunting law by failing to buy a $7 stamp allowing them to shoot upland game birds. A spokesman for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department said warnings are being issued in most cases because the stamp requirement only went into effect five months ago and many hunters weren't aware of it.

He owns a gun.....at least he believes in ownership of firearms. more than we can say about our other politicians

He hunts....At least our #2 in charge hunts, more than we can say about our other politicians.

He is human, we make mistakes, Accidents happen...if you have never had an accident your almost like perfect.

was it avoidable? yes.

Is it excusable? maybe, maybe not.

Are we quicker to judge a regular guy for a mistake? you bet your booty..

Is it right? most likely not.

Is a hunting accident forgivable? it sure is, if it was truly an accident.

Should the media dwell on it? yes, if they wish to look like fools for not dwelling on hotter topics happening in the world, dwell away as usual.
