Cheney. Pence may have a Jesus-sized cross up his butt, but as far as I know he's never gotten drunk and shot someone.

Seconded!

Also, Pence never tortured anyone.*

*Of course Pence has extensively tortured himself by getting into bed with Trump, but that is nowhere near the Torture program that Cheney was involved in.

Cheney. Why is this even a question?

Privatize the profits and socialize the losses. It's the American way. That's how Mnuchin got rich. Worse, he did it on the backs of elderly people who had been conned into reverse mortgages. Mnuchin paid zero, took on the debt then taxpayers bailed him out.

Thirdeded. VP Pence prefers to pray his problems away. VP Cheney put jumper cables on their testicles.

Cheney.

He decided he needed his own intelligence agency which then relied on a handful of
people saying “Of course you’ll be seen as welcome liberators if you put your troops in Iraq.”

ETA:
“Hey, thanks, Al, for writing a report about 21st Century threats, but we’re going to shelve that and write our own report. If we spend a year on it, then it’ll be finished by January 2002.”

I don't know... Does trying to use taxpayer money to fund"pray away the gay" conversation therapy counts as torture (at least psychological)

Too early to tell yet. Hopefully we won't get to find out what damage Pence could do as president.

Cheney could have, arguably did, run the country when Bush couldn't.
Pence wouldn't be able to.

But then, neither can Trump, so no change there.

Cheney, without question. Lined his own pockets via war, one of the so-called experts that GBW misplaced his trust in, and who really *should* have been trustworthy, but proved that he wasn't.

Pence is just a mimic, in contrast.

The **** Cheney did in relation to that pales though, that is bad, but jumper cables to one's privates is worse imo

Actually to date, religiosity aside, Pence has shown the same conspiroguano that his boss has.
