Dick Cheney needs no introduction as George Bush’s vice president, and Cheney focused the office tightly so that he will be remembered as America’s first “vice president for torture”!
Cheney, like Bush, has a history of drunk driving. He was convicted in 1962 and arrested again in 1963.
Cheney flunked out of Yale, and, like Sarah Palin, who wanted to follow him as neocon vice president for book burning and wolf hunting, he finished his education at a much easier school.
Cheney, despite his shaky background, is rich. He made his money off Halliburton, which was awarded numerous “no compete” contracts related to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Halliburton also moved its headquarters to Dubai to avoid paying taxes.
