Cheney’s dismissive ‘So?’ on Iraq prompts swift elaboration“WASHINGTON â€” With a one-word comment â€” “So?” â€” Vice President Dick Cheney has reignited the debate about whether the White House cares that most Americans do not support the war in Iraq.
“The comment came in Amman, Jordan, during an interview with ABC’s Martha Raddatz, who prefaced a question to Cheney by saying, ‘Two-thirds of Americans say it’s not worth fighting.’
“‘So?’ Cheney interjected.
“‘So?’ Raddatz replied. ‘You don’t care what the American people think?’
“‘No,’ Cheney said. ‘I think you cannot be blown off course by the fluctuations in the public opinion polls.’”
There you have it folks, opposition to the war in Iraq is just a fluctuation in public opinion polls. The administration doesn’t care SQUAT about what anyone thinks–as long as BIG OIL is making profits.

Cheney continued with standard White House rhetoric about improving conditions in Iraq.”
