YouTube is not a reliable source by Wikimedia standards. One can, however, try to find quotes from such videos in more reliable published sources. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 10:54, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

This is basically an anti-Cheney page. So many quotes taken out of context just to make him look bad. He is a good man whether you agree with him politcially or not. I really dispise this type of attack. This entire page should be redone with SOME form of balance.
