Should Cheney Be "Furious" With Bush?

Cheney reportedly "furious" with Bush over Libby

Former Vice President Dick Cheney may not be in office anymore, but he can, apparently, still hold a leftover grudge or two.

The New York Daily News' Tom DeFrank, one of the better-connected reporters out there, writes Tuesday that at the end of the Bush administration Cheney "launched a last-ditch campaign to persuade his boss to pardon Lewis (Scooter) Libby -- and was furious when President George W. Bush wouldn't budge...

"Several sources confirmed Cheney refused to take no for an answer," DeFrank reports. "'He went to the mat and came back and back and back at Bush,' a Cheney defender said. 'He was still trying the day before Obama was sworn in.'"

Bush reportedly became so frustrated with his vice president that he announced he'd no longer discuss the matter. The whole experience has left Cheney "really angry," or at the very least angry enough that his loyalists are leaking the story to reporters.

People loyal to Bush, meanwhile, are firing back, with one telling DeFrank, "At some point you have to accept the decision of the guy who appointed you. I think Cheney was over the top."

Hell-- IM furious with Bush, I could care less if the ex vp is!!  I do think pardoning Libby would've been a bad move, he didnt do anything for this country since the summer, so acting like a president on the last day would've been an even bigger slap in the face.
