When checking Google news last night, I couldn't believe what I was reading. Surely there was a mistake, and 'our vice president' would not stoop this low. But wait...I suddenly remembered... I am getting very tired of being jerked around like this. Here is what I found: (to follow the logic...who was in office on 9/11?)
Cheney ties election result to chance of terror attack
By Jill Lawrence and Richard Benedetto, USA TODAY
The presidential campaign spiked to a new level of rhetorical heat Tuesday when Vice President Cheney warned that a vote for Democrat John Kerry could bring terrorist attacks on the USA.

Speaking to supporters in Des Moines, Cheney called it "absolutely essential" that on Election Day voters "make the right choice. Because if we make the wrong choice, then the danger is that we'll get hit again, and we'll be hit in a way that will be devastating."
Cheney's remarks overshadowed accusatory exchanges by Kerry and President Bush over Iraq and drew a response from North Carolina Sen. John Edwards, Kerry's running mate.
"Dick Cheney's scare tactics crossed the line today," he said. Protecting America from "vicious terrorists" is not a partisan issue, and Cheney and Bush ought to know that, Edwards said.
