Bush ‘Satisfied’ With Cheney’s Response to Shooting
Posted on Feb 16, 2006
President Bush pronounced himself “satisfied” today with Vice President Cheney’s explanation of a hunting accident in which a 78-year-old Texas lawyer was shot and wounded. He said Cheney “handled the issue just fine.”
In a brief question-and-answer session with reporters at the White House after a meeting with the visiting president of Colombia, Bush said Cheney was traumatized by his accidental shooting of Texas lawyer Harry Whittington during a quail hunt on a ranch near Corpus Christi late Saturday afternoon.
