Whiskey Fox Tango!!! Why???????
I echo your sentiments.
Bill Bennett mentioned today (on his radio show) that he endorsed Rick Perry.
What’s up with this?
Jeez stupid typo on my part. Absent minded prof moment of the day.
Somebody must have some dirt on Perry.
Rino vs Rino
being backed by the only conservative from the Bush/Cheney ticket.
I just dont get politics sometimes.
Cheney to campaign for Hutchison. Just goes to show you that nobody’s perfect!
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.
The God (at least it seems for many here) who failed.
Perry is still the better of the 2. Next week, Doug Hoffman, next year, Rick “Harry Reams” Perry. Victory!
WTF Dick? Are you off your meds?
Cheney must’ve been sippin’ the RINO koolaid again..
Conservatism? Like supporting gay marriage?
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.
Palin has endorsed Perry.
Occam’s Razor tells me that DC is a RINO then.
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.
Bush will also, eventually, endorse Perry.
No suprise here. Cheney, like Bush, is a neo con socialist-lite. Rick Perry is the conservative pick in Tx.
It’s clear that the RNC is in bed with the DNC.
Sarah or bust?!
But he will never run....
Liz Cheney would make a great candidate for the Pubbies.....
so this is essentially Palin vs. Cheney.
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!
It’s not dirt, it is toll-road/TTC tar. No feathers...yet.
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.
Dime to donuts Newt will endorse KBH.
WHAT? Dick, we hardly knew you!
Nah....Gary Johson or bust. Sarah is in bed with the neocons.
One of the rare occasions when I have disagreed with her.
On no! Even Dick Cheney is not immune to the attacks from the pod people.
Nah....Gary Johnson or bust. Sarah is in bed with the neocons.
Pro Gun...Pro 1st Amendment...pro Tenth amendment..Pro Life.
Gay Marriage? must be his daughter....
OK conservative on some issues...Libertarian on others...
Gary Johnson... oh yeah... that’s the next President. LOL!
I thought better of him, but then I was wrong about Bush (pick any one of ‘em), and McCain (early on).
If I were Sarah, I wouldn’t support either of them.
Thank you for interjecting humor into this sh*tty thread, it is sorely needed!
WTF is wrong with DC? Wow, just...wow. What happened?
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?
Still won’t vote for her.
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?
Somebody must have some dirt on Perry.
Cheney endorsing Kay Bailey Hutchison over Rick Perry??!! We are truly living in Bizarro World. Say it ain't so, Dick!
I’m shocked and I just don’t get it.
Cheney has just ceased being awesome.
This sucks and so does KBH.
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'll bet you're a Paulite.
