From Think Progress:
The reality is that it is the policies that Cheney has fought so hard for over the years that have made America less safe. His scare tactics are nothing more than an attempt to salvage his own conscience.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney was a national disgrace and an embarrassment to himself while in office, but he's not quite done engaging in some of the cheapest, most offensive, least honest demagoguery imaginable.
Previous national leaders, once they leave office, usually maintain some sense of decorum, refraining from attacking their successors. Cheney waited just two weeks before accusing the Obama administration of coddling terrorists and putting American lives at risk. Classy.
Rachel Maddow talks to Sen. Bernie Sanders who was the one that first came up with the idea of limiting executive pay. Sanders also feels we need to have a real investigation into who caused the banking crisis and that the TARP oversight committee should lead it.

David Shuster filling in for Keith talks to Jonathan Turley about the latest twists and turns with Rove refusing to appear before Congress. Turley feels that Rove can no longer continue to maintain the untenable position that they're going to invoke executive privilege to protect the executive branch against information from the executive branch and that Rove might be finally be looking at a real chance of indictment and contempt chareges.
We can only hope. If anyone finally gets to the bottom of the Don Siegelman case I think Karl Rove is in big trouble. This latest news is a good step in the right direction.
