He still should have made sure the way was clear before he shot. Both men are at fault. I don't see where the ''Katrina model'' figures into this equation, only the most absurdly ultraliberal nitwit would make a comparison. The White House and any bungling that may have been going on at the time, along with the fact that Bush is a shitheel, is irrelevant to this particular matter.

According to the ranch, Whittington seperated from the hunting group to track down a bird. He went 100-150 yards one way and the rest of the group (including Cheney) told him they were going to go jump a covey roughly 200 yards in the other direction.

Whittington was accidently hit when he tried to rejoin the group at a range of about 30 yards. Cheney was reportedly using a 28 gauge.

If all this is true, its hard to judge who's fault it is. Sounds like Whittington probably shouldn't have tried to rejoin the group, especially "unannounced".

I agree with this 100%.. Their both at falt, but if it was me that strayed away from the group and tried to rejoin you can bet that they would all no that i was comming back. Not that I would stray at all anyway. This is a dead subject cause we could beat this thing to death and it still wont change the outcome. We'll just have to see what kind of new laws the tree hugging scum liberals come up with. Evil! and deal with them then. Brick Wall,)

CO, you're forgetting the #1 rule of the one-dimensional left. No matter what happens, if it's negative and gets nationwide attention, it has to be pinned on the administration.

Remember the Republican victory in the election? Bush's fault for not having state elections run properly.

The tsunami? Bush's fault for not getting a worldwide warning system implemented.

Katrina? Bush's fault for FEMA.

Iraq? Bush's fault for everything.

9/11? Bush's fault for bad intelligence.

Global warming? Bush's fault.

Yesterday on CNN they were pretty much accusing the administration of a coverup, and in fact split the Cheney story -- with a story about Katrina in between.

I've worked in TV news. IMO there's been a disturbing shift in the media, and stories are far more slanted than they used to be. At one time, the media thought it's mission was to inform the public. Now it thinks its mission is to EDUCATE the public. Between McCarthyism and Watergate, they've come to see themselves as the righters of all wrongs in the world, and think its their duty to teach the public why things are important, rather than just tell them what happened.

This is because the left-wing nutjobs are shitheads that squabble over every little thing. While it is certainly a fact that George W. Bush absolutely sucks as a president, no even halfway decent candidates have emerged from the other side in a long, long time. The only appreciable difference between Bush and Kerry is they each had contrasting ideas about how to royally fuck up the country.

FEMA wasn't Bush's fault, it was FEMA's fault, with a crapload of red tape from various other politicians who were so busy patting themselves on the back over a job well done alongside them. I didn't see Michael Moore, John Kerry, or Hilary Clinton down there plucking people out of the floodwaters.

Iraq? Everything's not his fault. Just that were there and can't leave.

The tsunami: OOOHHH this one makes me furious. You know all that money that was supposed to go to those people as a sort of relief fund? IT'S TIED UP!!! While certain troggles are wondering why Bush, (like he's really a rocket scientist) didn't build a great big warning system, I'd like to know why it's been over a year and that money hasn't gotten to those people yet!

AHHH 9/11... I remember reading somewhere that the hi-jackers had slipped into the country years before the actual event, and the FBI, not George Bush, had already been on the case of a couple of them. The Clinton Administration knew there was a guy named Osama Bin Laden out there blowing up American embassies abroad.

Global warming sort of is his fault. He did, after all, strike down a piece of legislation aimed at the control of certain greenhouse gases in early 2001. Think

It never ceases to amaze me how every issue is broken down into a partisan debate.

I'd still rather hunt with Dick Cheney than ride with Ted Kennedy.

After hearing today about how it went down.........I can picture the scene and it is and always has been the exact thing that I worry about the most while hunting. Accidents do happen. I hope the man pulls through OK.

There's just one little detail that has me bothered. Cheney was on the far right of the line. Whittington came up behind him on the right. The bird broke right, Cheney didn't know Whittington was there, swung, and fired. That all makes sense. But how did Whittington get hit on the right side of his face and torso? Shouldn't it have been his left? To get hit on the right he'd have to have turned around to face the rear.

Yeah. I can see that happening. He's coming up, realizes a bird is flushing and that he's in the wrong place at the wrong time, turns to try to get out of there... Seems reasonable to me.
