For four years, Vice President Dick Cheney has resisted routine oversight of his office's handling of classified information, and when the office in charge of overseeing classification in the executive branch objected, the vice president's office suggested that the oversight office be shut down, according to documents released yesterday by a Democratic congressman. The oversight office, a unit of the National Archives, appealed the issue to the Justice Department, which has not yet ruled on the matter.

Sunday's cartoon by Kevin Kallaugher regarding Richard Cheney was right on ( "The Cheney tour," July 6)! Single-handedly behind the scenes, Mr. Cheney has wreaked more havoc than any other American citizen ever. In 1976, he met with three other Republicans and they started the movement that led to the marriage of corporate and congressional economic interests which have eliminated the distancing from corporate influence that is supposed to exist when congressional members are elected.

NEW YORK - Seldom if ever has a vice president been afforded the convention spotlight that Dick Cheney enjoyed here the other night in his dual role as the Republican Party's chief exponent of its conservative values and Democrat-basher. His appearance as cleanup hitter provided an ideological counter to the convention's earlier pointed effort, employing speakers such as John McCain, Rudolph Giuliani and Arnold Schwarzenegger to show a more middle-road face to undecided voters. The convention prominence given to Mr. Cheney was one not assigned to earlier Republican running mates, going back even to Richard Nixon in 1952.

WASHINGTON -- In a way, Dick Cheney can probably thank not only George W. Bush for his selection to be George W. Bush's running mate. He can also thank Dan Quayle. The fiasco that resulted in 1988 when the Texas governor's father chose Mr. Quayle to run on the GOP ticket with him was one that Mr. Bush's strategists wanted no part of. George W. said it simply from the start in declaring that the individual he would choose had to be someone "who could be president." It was a description that Mr. Quayle in 1988 seemed not to fill from the memorable moment the senior George Bush picked him -- and got himself nearly hugged to death on a New Orleans dock by his ecstatic choice.

VICE PRESIDENT Dick Cheney was not arguing on Tuesday that a vote for John Kerry was a vote for terrorism, though if anyone came away with that impression after his remarks in Des Moines, Iowa, he probably wasn't too distraught about it. What he was saying was that if the "wrong" man is elected in November, and if there comes another big terrorist attack on America, the new Democratic administration won't know what to do, will try to pretend that it's...

WASHINGTON - Thomas Marshall, Woodrow Wilson's vice president, once said his job was "to ring the White House bell every morning and ask what is the state of the health of the president." Nobody cared about the health of the vice president. The first vice president, John Adams, called his position "the most insignificant office that ever the invention of man contrived or his imagination conceived." How times have changed. When Dick Cheney was hospitalized with a heart problem, the news hit this town with near the force it might have been had President Bush himself checked in. The obvious reason is the unprecedented role Cheney has played in the new administration, from the transition to the present.

WASHINGTON -- The story is that when Barry Goldwater delivered his acceptance speech at the 1964 convention, dispensing high-octane conservatism, a journalist exclaimed, "My God, he's going to run as Goldwater." Today many people are similarly thunderstruck that both nominees of the conservative party are conservatives. The Gore campaign is a jalopy with one gear -- fear overdrive. Hence the manic attempt to convince the country that Dick Cheney is Mussolini without the rhetorical flair.

Thank you for enunciating my thoughts exactly in your editorial "Death by drone" (March 9). I would think a vast majority of the people voted for Barack Obama as a repudiation of the disastrous Bush-Cheney administration. But President Obama, like his predecessor, is trying to usurp power I would argue rests with the legislative branch. I would never have guessed that Attorney General Eric Holder would make some convoluted but lame excuse for denying U.S. citizens due process. Mr. Holder at his press conference gave a great impersonation of Dick Cheney.

The images of the burning towers on Sept. 11 are seared into our collective memory. It seemed unthinkable that we could be attacked on our native soil. During our nation's founding, we were also attacked on our soil. And though the British who captured our fighters treated their prisoners brutally, Gen. George Washington instructed his troops to act with integrity. "Treat them with humanity, and let them have no reason to complain of our copying the brutal example of the British Army in their treatment of our unfortunate brethren who have fallen into their hands," he told the Northern Expeditionary Force in September 1775.

We were told during the eight years of the previous administration that high gas prices were a result of evil, greedy oil companies and the Bush/Cheney ties to that industry. Now we are told that high gas prices are a result of evil, greedy oil companies and the Republican-led Congress. Now there's change we can believe in. Dave Reich, Perry Hall

"And finally, Dick Cheney removed all doubt by having an artificial pump installed where his heart should be." Susan Reimer ("A parade of people behaving badly," July 19) reached the peak of her periodic liberal snipes with this cheap shot comment. It really reflects badly on an otherwise not-bad and fairly perceptive column. George Creel, Davidsonville

Sorry for the delay in reacting to Susan Reimer's commentary in The Baltimore Sun ("A parade of people behaving badly," July 19) but our cable was down, thus no access to the Internet. We are so fortunate to have free speech in this wonderful country of ours; but why is it necessary for one your columnists to print such blatant personal attacks in her commentary? Ms. Reimer seems to be leading the parade of people behaving badly. Her rudeness is magnified by identifying Sarah Palin as "control-freak Mama Sarah" and saying the Dick Cheney has an "artificial pump where his heart should be."

WASHINGTON -- A deadly daylight attack on the huge U.S. military base at Bagram, Afghanistan, during a visit by Vice President Dick Cheney underscores the diminishing American prospects for military success in the region, analysts said yesterday. The suicide bomb attack at the base front gate - literally on the doorstep of the U.S. military command headquarters in Afghanistan - left the vice president unhurt. But the blast killed 23 people, including two U.S. soldiers, the Associated Press reported.

It has been a busy few weeks for those of us in the Glass House Club who keep track of the bad behavior of others. Almost before we finished shaking our heads and tsk-tsking at Al Gore's purported bad massage table behavior, we had Lindsay Lohan's bad nail polish behavior and Mel Gibson's bad telephone behavior. Anyone concerned about the coarsening of the cultural conversation has got to admit that that horse has left the barn. We are now hip-deep in I-can't-believe-anyone-would-actually- do -that.

For the second time in less than six years, David S. Cordish played host to the nation's vice president at a high-dollar fund-raising event Wednesday night, when Joe Biden headlined a Democratic reception at the developer's Lutherville home. It's not unusual at the loftiest levels of political fundraising for a major contributor to introduce the vice president at an event he is hosting. What is rare about Cordish's case, though, is that the last vice president he welcomed was Dick Cheney.
