Cheney tries to backtrack on his scare-mongering

Cheney is trying to weasel out of his comments the other day where he said that if Americans vote for Bush, they will be safe, but if they vote for Kerry, they will likely get attacked again. Now he is saying that what he meant to say was the Bush and Kerry would RESPOND differently to another attack. Ummmm, here is the original quote:

“It’s absolutely essential that eight weeks from today, on Nov. 2, we make the right choice, because if we make the wrong choice then the danger is that we’ll get hit again and we’ll be hit in a way that will be devastating from the standpoint of the United States,” Mr. Cheney told about 350 supporters at a town-hall style meeting, according to The Associated Press.

I don’t know about you but that seems to pretty clearly articulate that the attack will happen to Kerry and not Bush.
