The Proof! Dick and John met in 2001!

From Yahoo News:


In this image from video, originally broadcast by C-SPAN Feb. 1, 2001, Sen. John Edwards , D-NC, is seen sitting next to Vice President Dick Cheney at a Senate prayer breakfast in Washington. Cheney said Tuesday night Oct. 5, 2004 that the debate with Democratic Sen. John Edwards marked the first time they had met. In fact, the two had met at least three times previously. (AP Photo/C-SPAN)

I guess if this is more important that Edwards poor attendance record in the Senate, then so be it......

I wonder why Edwards didn't say anything - unless he wanted to take the focus off of himself and took the opportunity to go for Cheney's voting record?

Cheney's voting record IS pretty frightening.

nb -- Edwards has presided over the Senate as acting president twice -- the same number of times as Cheney. And it's Cheney's JOB as outlined in the Constitution. Who has the bad attendance record now?

Btw, there is another pic out there of Cheney swearing in new senators, including Libby Dole, while Edwards looks on.

I think it just goes to show how easy it is for the man to lie. I mean how did he think this one would just slip by?

Both of their records aren't anything to smile at, but I think that can be said for a big percentage of politicians. It's a cush job compared to most peoples and it's easy to take advantage of the perks.

Look. The man is 51 or something. Maybe it's time to leave your childhood crushes behind or leave them to people your own age.

Edwards was on the campaign trail today saying that Cheney's comment about them never meeting was yet another Bush/Cheney lie.

Well why didnt Edwards correct him and expose his lie during the debate?

I can have a childhood crush on whoever the heck I want! It's not my fault he's good looking. I'm sure I'll move on at some point, now is not that time. Alot of what i say about Edwards is all for laughs anyway. Get over it.

Why do you care who I have a crush on anyway?

Simply put, Dick Cheney is a liar, has always been a crooked businessman and is now a lying, crooked politican!

And I'm sorry if the truth hurts, but the truth will set you free.

And if you look deeply into the eyes of Dick Cheney, you will see this truth there.

DEFINITELY TIME FOR REGIME CHANGE IN DC....

Probably because there were more important things to talk about in the few seconds he had to respond. That and the fact that what Cheney said is easily proven to be a lie, so there would be no point in taking time in the debate to point it out.
