Regardless of your political views, you can all agree with me that this is just plain disrespectful, right?

Read the story, why dontcha.

Is it any wonder that his name is "Dick"? I think not.

He has no respect for the american people, or freedom - what were they expecting? *grr*

Gah...first thought, I hope the airlines lost his luggage...then I remembered, Airforce 2. Sigh.

If they thought a teenager who was born into the spotlight should apologize for his actions, I think an adult man who has lobbied to represent a country should be giving HUGE apologies right now.

It could have been much worse, at least he didn't wear his nazi uniform!

That's just disgusting.

I don't see the problem in what he wore. In my opinion, when you're cold, you dress warmly, no matter what anyone else thinks. What hits me as wrong, though, is that look on his face. He looks bored, and just about ready to ask someone, "Are we done, yet?"

who's to say dressing more formally wouldn't have kept him just as warm? plus, the article does make a good point. for his swearing in just a few days ago, he wore dressier winter attire. so clearly he 1)does own formal winter attire and 2)knows to use it at important events. his clothing choice for this ceremony then certainly implies a certain amount of disrespect for the occasion.

To some who may have commented that they don't see what's wrong with the attire, would you wear that to your grandmothers funeral? Perhaps some are too young to have heard their grandparents talk about the horrors at Aucshwitz, but the ghosts of the people that died there deserve more respect than he showed. The man is an idiot.

No disrespect meant towards anyone else and their comments. I just truly think that Cheney is an idiot, I fully realise some others may disagree.

I'm sorry, but sometimes the only thing you can do is chuckle to yourself and the wonderous intelligence of those running our country....

Absolutely unbelievable! Some people need to be taken out and flogged for their behavior. No wonder so many other countries think we are rude/that we think we are better than everyone else. Look what our elected leaders (not that I elected him) feel is appropriate for a solemn occasion.

Posted by: Krush at January 29, 2005 10:27 AM

Don't we pay someone's salary to make sure he's dressed appropriate for the occasion. Who the hell let him out of the House like that?

Posted by: Debra at January 29, 2005 10:39 AM

I might've let the coat fly, but the knit hat with insignia? No way, especially since we know he has dressier clothes.

Posted by: Broad at January 29, 2005 11:30 AM

How embarassing... He really does look like an akward little boy. Way to represent us Dick.

Posted by: Sabine at January 29, 2005 12:48 PM

So did his Public Relations department take the day off? We all know people in politcs neither dress themselves nor speak for themselves.

Posted by: Lori at January 29, 2005 12:56 PM

Is anyone really surprised when he keeps acting like a dickweed? I've come to expect it. What a dickweed!

Posted by: Gweny at January 29, 2005 01:42 PM

Unbelievable. I totally agree with Krush: I live abroad and people here already find enough to criticize about the current US administration and, unfortunately, Americans. Do they really need to give them more material? It's time to show that we know better. Simply unbelievable.

Posted by: Catharina at January 29, 2005 04:00 PM

How embarassing. It shows a complete lack of forethought (I hope to GOD) and... lack of common sense. He's got the warm dress clothes, shame on him. It seems he doesn't even have to open his mouth to swallow his foot.

Which just goes to prove my point.... Dick Cheney is Dubya's best Life Insurance.(Seems he's brighter than I gave him credit for!) I don't even think The Pres needs the Secret Service to watch his butt. Who the hell wants anything to happen to Dubya when the alternative is Dick? Not I , my friend, not I!

Maybe I didn't want him re-elected, but perhaps some of you will join me in a prayer for Dubya's continued good health and safety, because sweet Lord above, it could be so much worse!

Well, don't be too hard on the guy. He wore the parka to cover up his nazi uniform and the wool ski cap to cover the swastica tattoo on his big old bald head. I think that's pretty respectful, don't you?

Posted by: RockStar Mommy at January 29, 2005 05:51 PM

i can't figure out why the hell he wore that. i mean, he has so much money, couldn't he wear a suit made out of the wool of a thousand sheep with gold bars up their butts?

a real class act.

Posted by: laura at January 30, 2005 01:37 PM

What an asshat. And people wonder why Americans are hated world wide....
