Cheney also supports gay-marriage... don’t make any illusions about his supposed “conservatism”. He is a foreign policy hawk, but hardly a “Conservative”.

Hutchison is a RINO disaster. This is like Newt endorsing Scozzafava. What we see here is two establishment GOPers (Newt and Dick) supporting liberal RINO women against candidates endorsed by Palin. The Palin vs. establishment rift is getting wider.

One could also mention that though Cheney while veep raised a ruckus about getting a pardon for Scooter he NEVER said a negative word about Bush’s bailouts.

Because Cheney is not nor has he ever been a “limited government” type conservative.

Just because hes is a hawk does NOT mean that he doesn’t believe government shouldn’t run your life.

Texas and Perry are being targeted because Texas has a population base that WILL support “extreme” 10th amendment measures given just a little more juice. You guys in Texas better be ready to fight that bi-ch back and get some more hard core “right wing extremists” in the Texas legislature.

No suprise here. Cheney, like Bush, is a neo con socialist-lite. Rick Perry is the conservative pick in Tx.

You know...I don’t really care which big-name (R)epublican is backing a (R)ino. It’s got to where I don’t give a fig who is supporting who. Basically, we can think for ourselves and go with the conservative. Geez. I’m so over the Rino-thing!

Actually, IMHO, the fact that he is a hawk (more accurately a muscular Wilson) IS evidence that hates limited government. If you believe that the U.S. government should be for a world nanny state, it is probably that deep down you think the same thing about its role domestically.

That's fine that some of us can see thru the bullsh*t. Others can't and an endorsement like this helps a RINO hag like KBH tremendously.

Please enlighten us. Why is a man who has extensive executive experience, successfully cut taxes and spending, is a tiger of the second amendment not as a qualified as Palin or Obama to be president. BTW, when did Sarah cut taxes and spending like Johnson did?

Perry has made his share of mistakes, for sure. Has he learned his lessons?

Sometimes I’m inclined to believe that he’s just not a very deep thinker and just goes with something that just sounds good at the time without thinking about the long term consequences. Or maybe he has some people advising him that he should be ignoring?

There are no conservatives running for Gov. of Texas, and let's be honest, having Cheney back you isn't going to win you any votes, period.

Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.

So you prefer Hutchison?

Hutchison has defended Roe vs. Wade (and voted accordingly) and was member in a pro-abortion congressional group. She also supports embryonic stem cell research.

She has repeatedly mocked and belittled Governor Palin using ugly liberal talking points and MSM insults.

Guess Hutichson feels the need to endear herself to the rats and liberals.

Not to forget that she was one the pubbies voting for Obama’s fascist GIVE act.

Hutchison is for Democrats, not for Republicans, not to mention Conservatives.

I woud have to heartily disagree. I am not a "nanny-stater" by any stretch of the imagination but there are no two ways about it, freedom and liberty are like manure and money, unless they are spread around they do no good.

I'll bet you're a Paulite.
