What do you think about VP Dick Cheney dropping the F-bomb?

Not much. I don't use the word myself but his use of it wasn't newsworthy.

What?

I've not heard about it - I guess it's something our media haven't deemed important enough to tell us about it!

Cheney dropped the F-Bomb? Really? I hadn't heard that. Well, if he was upset about something and it just came out, so what? I mean, most everyone cusses at some points in their lives (some
more than others). He should probably be more careful, but hey, f**king s**t happens!

I guess curses slip from everyone's lips at some point. The unfortunate thing is that rather use it in an informal conversation, Cheney cursed in Senate chambers. I'm no fan of the Bush
administration, but the media created too much buzz about this.

okay so i am definitely out of the loop on that but a lot of people curse and its not going to change. there are times though when people should try to use as much restraint as possible. like if you are national television, talking to children, or talking to your parents or elders.

its just a respect thing. its more than that when children are involved.

he did it and it shouldnt happen again. some people require apologies but i dont like apologies that are not meant. they are needless. if he truly is remoreful then apologize, if not then he just
try not to let it happen again.

I could scarcely care less.

Funny as fug that it happened the same day they decided to piss all over the first amendment again.

Not much. There are more important issues up for discussion.

The Democrats call him "pressured". The Republican's like the word, "gutsy". I think his language was another unfortunate, arrogant error of judgement.

Fuck is just a word. I hate Cheney but I don't hate him for using "the F-word". People get so worked up over one little word.

What bothered me was the fact that he did not apologize for using such language, rather, he said he was glad he said it. He could have said he was angry, however, he regretted using such language. I think the only way to settle things is to put the leading Republicans and Democrats in a Barbed Wire/last man standing match...that would make me smile.
