Washington, Jan 8 (ANI): US Vice President Dick Cheney has said that his image has gotten a bad rap in the press, and added that he is in fact a warm, lovable sort.

Cheney conceded in an interview with CBS radio that he sometimes expresses himself rather forcefully toward some of my compatriots, like Pat Leahy from Vermont, but dismissed as a caricature the idea that he is a Darth Vader-type personality.

I think all of thats been pretty dramatically overdone, quoted the vice president, as saying. Im actually a warm, lovable sort, he added.

Cheney also insisted that his influence within the Bush Administration was overstated throughout the past eight years.

The notion that somehow I was pulling strings or making presidential-level decisions. I was not, he said.

There was never any question about who was in charge. It was George Bush. And thats the way we operated. This whole notion that somehow I exceeded my authority here, was usurping his authority, is simply not true. Its an urban legend, never happened, Cheney said. (ANI)
