Cheney's ratings are actually on the rise. Amazing, since he is not part of the political makeup of DC any more.

And Obama, Pelosi, and Reid continue to plummet in the polls!

No, you are confusing the boss with the position. The President is indeed the boss, being the chief executive of the US. He or She is NOT, however, the chief law enforcement officer... that is not a job of the President. It is the job of the AG.

Nice try, though.

Well, somebody should have...


By your logic (that the president is the Chief Law Enforcement Officer just because he's the boss), that means that, by virtue of his position as the Commander in Chief, he's also the Chief Ordnance Expert, Chief Demolitions Expert, Chief Sniper, Chief Quartermaster, and the chief cook and bottle washer to boot!


A Police Chief hires a deputy. That doesn't make the Police Chief the "Chief Deputy".

A CEO hires a Chief Technical Officer. That doesn't make the CEO the "Chief Chief Technical Officer".

The buck stops with the president, but he is not a king and he's not the "chief" of every position that he fills.

There is a necessary separation between the office of President and the Justice Department.

Say whatever you want. That doesn't change the way the government works. But I can see that debating this point with you is useless, because it's clear you agree with Cheney in his mistaken claims.
