What? The Torture Gag is a Cover For Bad Economics?

There's even been speculation that he's been nobly trying to protect the little guys unlike the traitors of the Reagan administration who let them hang out to dry.
I can't say that I'm surprised that he would be out there justifying the torture regime. It looks so bad, and he's so closely associated with it, that anyone would want to publicly explain. But this is something different. It's true that Cheney was the guy who said "Reagan proved deficits don't matter --- this is our due," so his bona fides on the economic front are less than stellar. But nobody holds him personally responsible for the bail outs. And yet yet now he finds it necessary to tell everyone that he was against the GM bailout and basically throw Junior over the cliff?

It hurts so good....
