Skip to comments.Liz Cheney suggests Cheney presidential ticket in 2012
Posted on 11/16/2009 7:40:42 AM PST by pissant
Former Vice President Dick Cheney chose not to run for president in 2008 but his daughter suggested that he might be a good candidate in 2012. Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Liz Cheney dropped the former vice president's name as the panel was discussing President Barack Obama's decision to respect the Japanese Emperor by bowing during a formal greeting.
Fox News felt compelled to cover Obama bow to Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko after conservative blogs attacked the president. "Sarah Palin would not have bowed to the Emperor of Japan. She wouldn't have even curtsied to him," said Bill Kristol.
But for Liz Cheney, Palin wasn't the only answer to replacing a president that would dare to pay respect to a foreign leader. "You can look at the comparison and think Cheney 2012," teased Cheney. It wasn't clear if Dick Cheney's daughter was joking but the Fox panel seemed warm to the idea.
"That's all I'm going to say," she said.
Kristol, who has long been an advocate for Sarah Palin, had an even better idea. "Cheney/Palin," he suggested.
"Or Palin/Cheney. Don't be sexist," replied Chris Wallace.

In that case, there will be four more years of the Obamanation. It’s only been one year and I have had more than enough of this joker.
Who said anything about Dick Cheney?
She didn’t say Dick Cheney......
No! Cheney is too boring, too old, and still has questions about his heart. Stop picking conservatives who will put too many of the general public to sleep, and never mind what the MSM will continuously do to Cheney, if he ever did officially decide to run for POTUS!
If she's talking about herself then she does have delusions of grandeur.
She didn’t specify *which* Cheney!
And as much as I respect Dick Cheney, he’s not electable. It would be handing BHO a second term.
“She didnt say Dick Cheney......”
My thoughts exactly...we already have a Dick-less White House, anyway...
She have said a few times that she may be interested in running for office in the future, but not at this time. Srah Palin/Liz Cheney
maybe the Lesbian Cheney?
BTW, you are dumb.
The first Female,Lesbian,Republican President of the United States of America... The liberals would be spitting venom over that one...
Liz is not a lez. That’s her sister Mary.
I’d be surprised if he ran, but would love to see it. Only concern is that it brings back some anti-Bush/Cheney feelings at least early in the campaign, where I would like to see some new faces. I imagine Cheney would handle his differences with Bush quite handily, and would win over a lot of people. Still, I would be shocked to see it.
I assumed they were talking about Dick, based on Wallace’s “don’t be sexist” statement.
Yes he does.
I’d be thrilled to see Dick Cheney as President, but I worry that he isn’t electable. Maybe he can learn to do the cheerleading, sound bite-emitting act that seems to be required of political candidates in our times, but it won’t come easily to him. Of course, maybe after 4 years of President Obama, Americans voters will be hankering for anyone who seems like the exact opposite of Obama, in which case Cheney fits the bill perfectly just being himself.
Shows you how much I know. Maybe she was talking about her sister Mary???
The baggage she would have [from the left] is being Dick Cheney's daughter (a definite PLUS, but the left will run with it ad nauseum). If the left thinks she might be a serious contender for any elected office, look for the smears to begin.
I am also an admirer of Lynne Cheney. She is Number 1 one my list of most admired people.
Liz Cheney has the best traits of both of her parents.
One caveat: if the country moves into extremis because there is a major financial crash, a devastating epidemic or biological attack, a nuclear incident, the country might very well turn to a real man, the kind of man with genuine gravitas who is no narcissist but a bona fide patriot. In the right circumstances, the country would seek a man like Dick Cheney.
I keep thinking about putting up a Cheney/Palin 2012 sign in my yard.
It would cause aneurysms in the libs driving by.
“It would cause aneurysms in the libs driving by.”
You might at least cause them to get into a coupla accidents...but they won’t have insurance and someone else will have to pay the bill...
Cheney is the best man out there. He is the original heavy-hitter.
Palin continues to shine.
And DeMint is on my radar now, thanks to his role in the Honduras episode.
Folks we’ve got a pretty good cadre taking shape.
Cheney looks like Fr. Marin come to kick the devil’s butt.
But you watch. The party apparatchiks and media (including the girly boys at Nat. Review, WSJ, Etc) will tell us that Mitt, Huck , Pawlenty and Perry are the top guys. It will be the same lame BS all over again unless we are hyper vigilant and heavily involved.
Welcome to FR? How are things over at LP these days?
2012—for me its ABO Anybody But Obama. Anyone the GOP puts up I will vote for even David Duke! (racist yes, Commie No)I am sure the GOP will pick someone with some leadership and some background. That or a 3rd Party with some spine. Still, its a long way til 2011 and the president’s race—with a little luck, I hope, Obama will be caught in a scandal and forced to resign from the presidency.
The problems with the “anybody but...” are twofold.
a) You might end up with a worthless cadaver like Dole or McCain again who are to stupid to win.
b) you end up with a slick RINO that further damages the conservative movement that has just now become re-invigorated.
I just shake my head when I see freepers quoting democratic talking points.
It's ok to think before you post.
Dick Cheney is a GREAT American!!!
Remember the great line in Golden Girls when a high school friend of Rose was coming to visit and the others didn’t know if they should tell her that her friend had announced she was a lesbian? They decided she deserved to know and when one of the told her that her friend was a lesbian her response was, “That’s OK. So was Danny Thomas!” Priceless.
Sadly, one of those programs that I enjoyed even though I had a great dislike for the politics of nearly everyone involved in the series!
Never saw the show, but that’s a good line.
So you think Cheney would lose in 2012 if he runs against Obama... Just wondering why do you think that?
I’ll vote for him.
Liz isn’t a lesbian, her sister is, she’s not.
No thanks. Cheney = yesterday. No one with the Bush taint should be considered.
And he’s not happy about it,just like the rest of us.
Who is being snot nosed? I guess Jean Kirkpatrick and George Shultz and Ike too were all one worlders, eh?
No thanks. I’ve had the big picture down for a very long time.
What’s YOUR problem, Mr. Perfect? Dick Cheney seriously needs the majority of the GENERAL PUBLIC’s VOTE to win anything, and I really don’t see that happening with too many voters being too blind to what’s really presently happening to this country with the present political bunch. The GOP needs to stop picking old men as their final choice for POTUS!
