Republican Congressman Walter Jones Says Dick Cheney Will Go to Hell for Iraq War
Speaking at a conference held by Young Americans for Liberty, a group that was founded after Ron Paul's 2008 presidential run, Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) suggested that former Vice President Dick Cheney will go to hell for his involvement in the Iraq War.
During the speech at the event held in Raleigh, N.C., Jones said:
"Congress will not hold anyone to blame. Lyndon Johnson's probably rotting in hell right now because of the Vietnam War, and he probably needs to move over for Dick Cheney."
Jones' remarks drew a round of applause from those in attendance.
During the speech, Jones also expressed regret over his own vote in support of the Iraq War in 2003.
If Jones' name sounds familiar, it's because he was the guy during the early years of the Iraq War who tried get the name of french fries changed to "freedom fries" in the House of Representatives cafeteria. No word if he regrets that also.
On a side note, this reminds me of the episode of "Little Bush" when the devil kicks Cheney out of hell for being even too evil for him, but not before he learns a few new tricks from Dick.
Here's a video of Jones speaking on Saturday. The remarks about Cheney and the underworld start around the 35:30 mark.
