College leader 'disappointed' by Cheney

FULTON, Mo. - Westminster College's president said Monday he was so "surprised and disappointed" by Dick 'dick' Cheney's attacks on John Kerry during a speech there that "in the interest of balance and fairness and integrity" he is inviting Kerry to visit for a reply.

The right to act as it pleases
The public has no right to know what the government is doing

Cheney is defending, in other words, is a doctrine that makes the United States a sort of elected [sic] dictatorship: a system in which the president, once in office, can do whatever he likes, and isn't obliged to consult or inform either Congress or the public.
