Dick Cheney Argues for Superiority of Democrats' Economic Policies

Vice President Dick Cheney gave strong reasons for preferring Democratic fiscal policies in an interview today, Reuters reports (via Brad DeLong):

"If the Democratic policies had been pursued over the last two or three years, the kind of tax increases that both Kerry and Edwards have talked about, we would not have had the kind of job growth that we've had," Cheney said.

Approximately 2.3 million jobs have been lost since the Bush Administration took office in January 2001.

Cheney also stated that he supported a constitutional amendment to prevent his daughter, Mary Cheney, who is a lesbian, from ever marrying her partner.

"The president's taken the clear position that he supports a constitutional amendment," Cheney said in an interview with MSNBC. "I support him."

I know that it's common for parents to object to the people that their children are currently dating, but this is going a bit far, don't you think?
