    What Should Cheney Do With His 433,333 Halliburton Stock Options?

    Once Obama gets sworn into office and Cheney goes back into civilian life Dick will finally get a chance to taste some of those big war profits he's generated over the years. The current value of his Halliburton stock options is between $8 - $9 million - and that's a conservative estimate. Only problem is once Barack is Prez there's the distinct possibility the value of Halliburton's stock can go down significantly.

    My advice to Dick: call those options ASAP and then try to sell them off ASAP. Pawn them off to some suckers. You may not get as much war bucks as you originally thought but $6 mil in profit ain't too shabby.

    C'mon, the guy earned his money. He got 5 deferments from Vietnam and later on in life managed to start an illegal war. He deserves his war bucks.

    I suppose it's far too difficult to ask you to be a tenth as gracious in victory as McCain was in defeat?

    Hey, I'm just trying to make sure my vice-president makes as much money off this war as possible.

    Dude, maybe this will make you feel better: if Bush and Cheney hadn't sucked so hardcore, there would have been a significantly smaller chance that Obama would be elected. So please, stop being arrogant, stop gloating, and if you would like to have some intelligent conversation sans political rhetoric, we would all appreciate.

    Bush's legacy is Barack Obama. One last giant FU from Georgie before he goes. Thanks dubya!

    That's the real kick in the balls.

    Now you'll start seeing the real Obama.

    The most angry couple to ever enter the white house.

    I'm hoping Cheney just fades into obscurity.

    I don't think I have to worry about it. He is beholdent to Reid/Pelosi and the democrat machine.

    I disagree. He beat the machine. Clinton had the backing of the democratic establishment and all the money. He came out of nowhere and started a grassroots campaign that generated a lot of excitment which in turn generated an unprecedented amount of money. He should be grateful for Plouffe and Axelrod because they ran his campaign almost flawlessly. But he owes no one political favor.
    Reid and Pelosi had nothing to do with it. If anything, Reid and Pelosi should just be happy they have a D after there name because as it's been pointed out here many times, the congress has an even lower approval rating than Bush. Can't have it both ways.

    In fact yes. I'm sick of my parents *****ing about this or that. Give Obama his due. For once let's all trust a politician, until he actually does something to lose it. Oh, and I have more scorn for the religious right than socialists, so I'm an odd conservative to say the least.

    You're my kind of conservative.

    Good answer..

    Obama sold Idealism, I'm skeptical but will withhold judgment until he proves me right. Hopefully he doesn't
