Shirley Anne Warshaw


On her book The Co-Presidency of Bush and Cheney

Cover Interview of June 21, 2009

Editor’s note

Originally, this interview ran on the Rorotoko cover page under the headline

“Dick Cheney was not vice- but co-president of the United States.”

We highlighted two quotes.

On the first page:

“Cheney gained power because George W. Bush was focused on building a moral and civil society with the resources of the federal government. Lest anyone wonder how Cheney gained power, it was first and foremost his ability to staff the administration.”

On the second:

“Cheney oversaw a business-friendly presidency intent on deregulation and slashing the federal workforce with-according to Cheney- its intrusive oversight.”
