Second update to "And the excuse is..."

Turns out that "President" Bush was informed about Cheney shooting a hunting companion on Saturday night... yet the information wasn't made public until the next day... and not by the White House.

Add to that the fact that WH Spokesman Scott "I really, really miss Ari" McClellan was informed that same night... but he (supposedly) was only told that someone in Cheney's hunting party was involved and maintains he didn't know that Cheney was the shooter until the next morning, when he then urged the vice president's office to get the information out "as quickly as possible."

Believe it... or not.

I choose not, but that's just me.

Please clue me in to your and the media's interest regarding the time it took for the media to find out about this accident? Who cares? Since when did it become law that the media be informed about every movement of governmental heads? Isn't it the job of the media to do their own investigation and information gathering? Where's your concern for the person that was shot?

Typical liberals, putting their priorities in the wrong place. Quit being the devil's advocates and be productive: Get some work done!

An Elected Official - the second highest job in the Land has SHOT Someone- point blank, less than 30 yds away with 28 gauge shot gun- INJURIES TO HEAD, NECK, FACE AND CHEST AND ON NIGHT THREE IS STILL IN ICU. ( He is a 78 yr old man..gee, anyone wonder if he had a bit of a Heart Attack after being shot that close?, hmmm)
Shit even if a neighbor shot a dog that close ANY MORON ( Brian T) would / should be concerned....
( it is amazing to me the nuimber of redneck trailer trash idiots that come out defending this Criminal regime).
There are LAWS, even in Texas- for GUNSHOT wounds, esp for upper torso, head, chest and face- CERTAIN laws have to be followed- involved parties are questioned regarding circumstances, and investigations are initiated because of damages, and possible criminal activity.( ie. if Whittington had died that would be manslaughter).
Quail Hunting injuries are VERY rare-unless there are Drunken parties involved- usually dogs are the injured- rare for a human to be hurt. Wound patterns are usually the rump or back- NOT THE FACE....( ER Nurse experience here).
Under laws, in most states, Certain protocols have to be followed for this kind of gunshot wounds, esp. when a little old man of 78 is shot point blank in face.Including Blood alcohol tests, and police reports filed, and investigated. ( there are witnesses)
The Owner of the Land reported the incident becuase she knew that her address would be on reports- CYA for her. Local media was notified because she knew that the Crimebeat desk would get a roundup on a Weekend.
If the Whitehouse is involved in a Shooting they are required to NOTIFY THE PUBLIC, WHY ?? BECAUSE THEY WORK FOR US, WE THE PEOPLE, WE PAY THEIR SALARY. THEY ARE REQUIRED TO TELL THE TRUTH, REMEMBER THEY PUT THEIR LITTLE HANDS ON THE BIBLE WHEN THEY WERE SWORN IN ......
( I guess drinking the Koolaid does cause Brain damage if people can't remember who works for WHO...)
Smoking Gun does have the Police report.
Left of Center also has some more info , as does FireDogLake that put the Legal ramifications into perspective.
****PLEASE note that it is now 72 hours later and the VEEP"S office STILL HAS NOT RELEASED AN OFFICIAL REPORT AND/ or statement.

My concern is that we have an Administration that THINKS it is above the Laws of this land. ( Torture, spying, surveiilance, rendition and an Illegal War) and now they have indeed SHOT an old man, a lawyer in the face, and tried to cover it up. These people are indeed Criminals. They make Nixon look like MrRogers.

Wow!, I just realized I am dealing with junior high politics here. This comment:

"MORON ( Brian T) would / should be concerned....
( it is amazing to me the nuimber of redneck trailer trash idiots that come out defending this Criminal regime)"


surprises me. I wouldn't expect a liberal to actually stereotype someone and retaliate with ignorant comments. This is all you got? This is the left? Junior high bully.

Here's another ignorant comment: "Someone- point blank, less than 30 yds away with 28 gauge shot gun". First of all, point blank is not 30 yds away! (I won't even slander you with a name here, your comment says it all.) Second, a 28 gauge shot gun is hardly powerful enough to kill someone at 30 yds away. The gentleman was peppered with a bird-shot shell. The pellets lodged under his skin, not anywhere close to vital areas.

Yes, he's in intensive care because of his already bad heart condition that was probably worsened by the fear of being shot. I would agree. However, like most other issues the left likes to amplify, I believe it isn't necessary to notify the press immediately after the vice president takes a crap.

I do believe this situation is newsworthy but it's irrelevant whether it was printed one hour after the accident or 18 hours after. It isn't a cover-up as you would like the public to perceive. It's not a cover-up because the sherriff's department was called immediately afterwards. The woman who owned the land spoke with the news the following morning.

In regards to these comments:

"Since your head is probably spinning right now due to overthinking"

And

"But for you to know that would require you to have some progressive thought and think for yourself."

My original post was intended to challenge your highschool hatred towards the Bush Administration and your hypocracy. Where's the up-to-date news about Al Gore's speech in Saudi Arabia where he's bashing the U.S. for example?

My point is this: The Democrats spend so much time bashing, and trying to find ways to oust the administration, they've become unproductive in leading our country. That is why the right is winning. That's why your head is spinning.

AND BECAUSE I AM A NURSE THAT HAS ACTUALLY TAKEN CARE OF GUNSHOT PATIENTS- I AM WRITING HERE AGAIN- BECAUSE OH, GEE IT TURNS OUT THAT THE NURSE IS CORRECT- THERE IS A RISK OF THE SHOT CAUSING SERIOUS VASCULAR DAMAGE AND THAT THEY ( THE WH ) HAVE BEEN AND ARE TRYING TO COVER SOMETHING UP- IT TURNS OUT THE VICTIM DID INDEED HAVE A HEART ATTACK, THERE IS A RISK THAT THE PELLETS ARE STILL IN HIS VASCULAR SYSTEM. , HE HAS AN IRREGULAR HEART RYTHYMS AND HAD TO HAVE A CARDIAC CATH....I REALLY WORRY FOR THIS POOR FELLOW= HE FACES AN UNCERTAIN FURTURE.....

( I AM IGNORING THE MORON TROLL WHO SUPPORTS THE CRIMINAL REGIME WITH SUCH INSIPID ENTHUSIASM- I THINK MY UPDATE TELLS THE TRUTH...AND THAT IS ALL THAT IS NEEDED AT THIS POINT....)

Hmmm, You know that troll has some interesting points- that have not been in the mainstream media- 'HE HAS A KNOWN HEART CONDITION" ....hmmm, really now that is interesting...

"28 gauge at less than 30 yards won't kill" ( he says this like an expert)- really are you sure about that? What if they do have a heart condition and are shot in the face ???
( which in the ER is considered Point Blank)

Hmm, and he seems to know KNOW that the Sheriff dept. was NOTIFIED RIGHT AWAY..hmm, that wasn't on the news either....me thinks that troll-boy may have interesting ISP- bet you 10 cents that he is with the Commerce dept or the Lincoln group.and PAID to go pester educated intelligent blogs...( liberal blogs)

He KNOWS alot for a harmless little troll...must work for the Government- that would make him part of the Criminal Regime...

Whelp, I gotta go clean the troll slime off my shoe...before it stinks up the whole site....

All I can say is that if the poor old lawyer dies Cheney faces Manslaughter charges...and that the defense of "well, gee pellets don't kill" isn't going to work well. WHY?
Pretty simple- Guns don't kill people- people kill people....and sometimes it is with a gun.

so glib troll droppings don't mean much....
Even to the Nurse who was right.
