Bush could have been a more mild president if he had not selected Cheney for his vice president (Actually Cheney selected himself and then brought all of the old neocon guard into the government while Bush went on a vacation). Cheney is the bloodthirsty, power hungry SOB who had a profound negative influence on Bush. Unfortunately, this does not excuse Bush, who is ultimately responsible.
The fact that Bush refused to pardon Scooter Libby at the request of Cheney proves to me that these two parted on less than friendly terms.
