Cheney says grave worries about autos failure

WASHINGTON, Dec 15 (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney said on Monday there are grave worries that if the auto industry fails it will cause a major shock to the economy.

"We're on the downside of a recession that may be the worst since World War II," he said in an interview with conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh. "And if the automobile industry goes belly up now, there's a deep concern that that would be a major shock to the system."

Cheney said that there was an expectation that the money loaned to banks and possibly to the automakers would be repaid eventually. He also said steps by the administration and the Federal Reserve to provide liquidity to banks were helping.

"I think we're beginning to see signs that it's had a positive effect and that a lot of these problems will pass," he said.

The Vice President is one of the most active politicians in DC, and will remain so for at least another month. I hear he is the primary reason the President has decided to help the Beg 3.

I wonder how active he will be in prison? I hear pacemakers can jolt partners too

Well, if he's being active and all, he's sure hiding it well. I can keep all-too-close an eye on him from where I am right now

He doesn't travel about town very discreetly, btw. Menacingly, of course--it's Cheney! But discreetly, naaah.

The most effective "movers and shakers" never show up on anyone's radar--which is why they are so effective!

Vice President "Cheney's behaviour" is perfectly appropriate, and very astute!
