STUMP #2-The Veep


Yesterday, Vice President Dick Cheney announced his office is not a part of the Executive Branch, but actually a part of the Legislative Branch. Read the news here.

Apparently his office does not want to submit to an executive order which requires the National Archives' Information Security Office to review how his office handles classified information.

He argues that his only Constitutional duty is that of President of the Senate, and his paycheck comes from the Senate. His office does not have to comply with laws governing the Executive Branch alone.

MY OFFICIAL OPINION: THIS IS SOME OF THE BEST HAIR SPLITTING AND DIVERSIONARY TACTICS I HAVE EVER WITNESSED! DO THE NAMES LIBBY AND ARMITRAGE MEAN ANYTHING?

Congressman Henry Waxman, D-California, in addition to having an very unattractive mustache, went on the attack: "I question both the legality and wisdom of your actions," he wrote to Cheney.

Whoa Nelly!

MY OFFICIAL OPINION: THE REAL ISSUE IS THIS: WHY IS THE LEGISLATURE EXEMPT FROM THIS LAW? WHY DOESN'T THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES' INFORMATION SECURITY OFFICE REVIEW HOW CONGRESS HANDLES (LEAKS!) CLASSIFIED INFORMATION?

Yes, this is some world class finger pointing on all sides.
