I only ask because iron-ass in response to 9/11 sounds like a compliment

I suppose. Making the call to shoot down Flight 93 was pretty hard nosed.

A bunch of hijacked planes and one seemingly on the way to Washington. Not a decision I would want. They should be praised for how they handled that day and the days following. I think most hate for Cheney and Rumsfeld was for Iraq which Bush Sr. was happy about. I just read a few articles and they all say Bush Sr. Slams Cheney. He didn't at all.

Cheney wanted to oust Saddam in the Iraq War. Sr Bush said no. So there has always been that tension between the two. But agreeable men can disagree on huge topics.

Cheney is a Neocon (former Democrats who became staunch hawks, thus Republicans, during the Cold War). Bush Sr is an old-school Republican. Neocons are the more ideologically conservative of the two. It's the Neocons that want the US to project force in any and all world hot-spots. Bush Sr was never that kind of Conservative.
