Washington Post story (Part 3 of 4):

Cheney had spent months making sure the package contained everything he wanted. One thing was missing.

The president had accepted Cheney’s diagnosis that the sluggish economy needed a jolt, overruling senior economic advisers who forecast dangerous budget deficits. But Bush rejected one of Cheney’s remedies: deep reductions in the capital gains tax on investments.

The vice president “was just hot on that,” said Cesar Conda, then Cheney’s domestic policy adviser. “It goes to show you: He wins and he loses, and he lost on that one.”

Not for long.

Yes, you heard the shocking news on WizbangBlue first… The Vice President of the United States shaped public policy.

When Kevin first asked me about Wizbang Blue, I was a very vocal supporter. It didn’t work out the way I hoped it would. – These guys are so crazy with their hatred of the Bush administration they post crazy stuff like that.

Next we’ll hear shocking news that Dick Cheney was *gasp* allowed in the Whitehouse.
