WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Vice President Dick Cheney on Wednesday disputed former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan's portrayal of the Bush administration's economic policies as fiscally reckless.
"I think his assessment is off the mark," Cheney wrote in an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal.
Cheney said Bush had "pressed hard" to limit the growth in spending outside of the military and homeland security.
"Alan credits me in his book for my 'intensity' and 'sphinxlike calm' -- and it's in a spirit of friendship that I offer him these gentle reminders of the Bush record," Cheney said.
Greenspan has come under criticism of his own both for endorsing Bush's 2001 tax cuts and failing to air his criticisms in public earlier.
Now if we could just get "babs" bush to begin eating her young . . . .
