"With perfect Nixonian pitch, Cheney remarked in 1976: "Principle is OK up to a certain point, but principle doesn't do any good if you lose." During the Iran-contrascandal Cheney, a republican leader in the House of Representatives, argued that the congressional report denouncing "secrecy, deception and disdain for the law" was an encroachment on executive authority."

Nixon's empire strikes back

well, if it's such an awful thing to donouce those things, maybe we all should be secretive when it comes time for the income tax, and deceptive with the numbers....or heck, just show our own disdain for the law and not bother filing....

I'd put this whole article in the trash as garbage, if it wasn't for the fact that this administration has shown all three of these traits time and again!

it's an interesting read showing just how history has a tendency to repeat itself every now and then....
