Cheney Takes Responsibility For Shooting Wednesday, February 15, 2006

Dick Cheney spoke to Brit Hume on Fox News today and accepted full responsibility for the accident:

"I'm the guy who pulled the trigger that fired the round that hit Harry."


"You can talk about all of the other conditions that exist at the time but that's the bottom line and — it was not Harry's fault," he said in an interview with Brit Hume. "You can't blame anybody else. I'm the guy who pulled the trigger and shot my friend."

Cheney had been criticized heavily for not talking about it and finally opened up. He told his side of the story and I'm fine with it. I don't have a problem with people hunting. There are lots of things to criticize Cheney for but the only real problem with this was that he didn't handle the PR properly. This issue was taking up space for other, more important problems facing our nation, not the least of which is the senate rolling over on the wiretapping investigation.
