Dick Cheney is the most powerful yet most unpopular vice president in American history.
This book is vastly more detailed, and covers more high crimes and misdemeanors, than either State of Denial, which misunderstands Bush as being in charge, or Crossing the Rubicon, which focuses primarily on Cheney’s role in first permitting 9-11, and then working assiduously to cover up his malicious malfeasance. One final scary note: in the many doomsday drills that Cheney participated in across his career and inclusive of his Vice Presidency, they always failed to reconstitute Congress. As a weekly reporter in Miami, he covered the 2000 Florida recount and the Elian Gonzalez story. From the engineering of his own selection as vice president to his support of policies allowing torture as a permissible weapon in the 'war on terror', Cheney has consistently steered America to the right. While working as a freelancer in Guatemala and El Salvador, he wrote about the destruction of the rain forest and the end of guerrilla insurgencies. In Texas, Bernstein's work on Tom DeLay's campaign-finance scandals has won multiple journalism awards.
One of the most illuminating sections of the book involves Cheney’s power consolidation as vice president
Rockefeller, the former governor of New York and a domineering figure himself, also sensed weakness in the oval office and was drawn to that for his own reasons. Apparently, Rockefeller aspired to be what Dick Cheney would later become – a de facto President of the United States (Maybe that’s where Cheney got the idea). One of the most illuminating sections of the book involves Cheney’s power consolidation as vice president. Many have wondered how and why he gathered so much power and influence.
