The Vice President Visits Battle Creek

By  | 

In his speech before an estimated one thousand supporters, Vice President Dick Cheney concentrated on the War on Terror and Homeland Security.

Cheney said President Bush succeeded in the Iraq War, putting Saddam Hussein behind bars and removing the Taliban from power. He also noted this November's election comes at a crucial time, as the War on Terror continues.

Cheney continued criticism of John Kerry for first voting for the war in Iraq, then voting against subsequent money to fund the war.

Cheney also touched on domestic issues, President Bush's three tax cuts, the 'No Child Left Behind' act. But the focus of the evening stayed on national security.

State Republican officials say the Bush-Cheney ticket will be back in Michigan 'very soon.'
