On the January 14 edition of Fox Broadcasting Co.'s Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace queried Vice President Dick Cheney about "members of Congress who may try to block your efforts, your policy in Iraq," by asking: "Would they be, in effect, undercutting the troops?"

From the January 14 edition of Fox Broadcasting Co.'s Fox News Sunday:

WALLACE: So, let me ask you a couple of specific questions. If Congress passes a resolution opposing increasing the troops in Iraq, will that stop you?

CHENEY: It would be a sense of the Congress resolution, and we're obviously interested in it and what Congress has to say about it. But it would not affect the president's ability to carry out his policy.

WALLACE: What do you say to members of Congress who may try to block your efforts, your policy in Iraq? Would they be, in effect, undercutting the troops?

CHENEY: Well, I think they would be. But I think, more than that, Congress clearly has every right to express their opinion and to agree or disagree with administration policy, and they will.
