Quotational Therapy: Part 81 -- Dick Cheney.
Cheney, On Freedom In The Middle East-
While establishment journalists such as NBC's David Gregory openly display disdain for Vice-President Dick Cheney, declaring almost unanimously that Cheney has some sort of dark, cynical, pessimistic view of Islam and of the world, the truth is that Cheney, like his boss, is a believer in the power of freedom to ultimately change the Middle East.
Dick Cheney is an optimist and a far more upbeat guy than anyone seems to give him credit for. Having been around him in person, I can testify that he rarely snarls and frowns, although nearly every photo in the media shows him doing so. He has a great sense of humor, and although it's clear that he has quite a lot weighing on his mind at any given moment, he has a penchant for spontaneous jolliness and wit.
If there's one thing the Veep is cynical and pessimistic and negative about, it's the establishment media. Thus, David Gregory and company are merely projecting their own negative vibes onto the rest of the world. Newsflash for the news people: Cheney doesn't hate the rest of the world, just you.
Unfortunately, our media has failed to get us the straight skinny on Dick Cheney. So here's an excerpt from speech from March 7, 2006:
It is not hard to see why the terrorists oppose and rage against the rise of democracy in Iraq. They know that as liberty advances, as men and women are given a say in the affairs of their country, they turn their creative gifts to the pursuits of peace. People who live in freedom are able to choose their own destiny, and this gives them real hope for material progress in their own lives, and a better future for their children. As democracy advances, ideologies that stir anger and hostility lose their appeal, and terrorists lose recruits, safe havens, and sources of funding.

Maybe the media is confused and is thinking about coach Chaney?...
