Well, bless his heart. Dick Cheney joined daughter Liz Cheney yesterday at the GOP convention in Wyoming three weeks after his heart transplant
Cheney blasted Barack Obama as an unmitigated disaster for the country. FOX reported, via Weasel Zippers:
Dick Cheney, just weeks after undergoing heart transplant surgery, plunged back into the political theater Saturday praising presumptive nominee Mitt Romney while slamming President Obama as an unmitigated disaster.
The tough words came during an hour-and-15-minute talk at the Wyoming Republican Party state convention in Cheyenne on Saturday.
He sat in a plush chair throughout the long chat with daughter Liz Cheney and looked decidedly healthier than recent appearances where he has been gaunt and used a cane.
After Rick Santorum dropped out of the race this past week, Cheney in his address urged the party to pull together behind Romney. He said the former Massachusetts governor would do a whale of a job.
His opinion of the sitting president was less flattering.
He has been an unmitigated disaster to the country, Cheney said of Obama.
Cheneys heart transplant in Virginia on March 24 initially canceled his trip to the state party convention but he got last-minute medical clearance to go.
You insulted Dick Cheney. Period. You accused him of getting off his death bed and giving a speech because he is afraid of a tax audit. That is insulting as well as stupid. You should just apologize to Cheney, then you can move on to disagree with him. But insulting him here is just offensive.
And of course this was caused by your anti Romney fanaticism. You just can’t imagine that Cheney would support the likely nominee, so you made up a fantasy about Cheney giving a speech to appease Obama to avoid a tax audit.
What tax audit? Do you realize you made that up out of nothing? Do you realize Cheney’s speech was attacking Obama, therefore he obviously wasn’t afraid of a tax audit by Obama?
Absolutely I “made it up.” Never said it wasn’t speculation. And you’re free to disagree. It wasn’t intended as an insult because there’s nothing wrong with seeking to protect yourself or your own family in my eyes.
I will also speculate that he does not want to hurt the chances for his politically active daughter Liz Cheney to rise in the Republican party. Just like he doesn’t support the federal marriage amendment because his other daughter is a homosexual. He is a good father and has shown he will side with his children when there is a conflict between them and conservative doctrine.
Dude no one has to take seriously the offensive crap you make up about Dick Cheney. Let me tell you something that isn’t speculation: His speech had nothing to do with tax audits or his daughter’s career, because he is a giant of a man, whereas you are a gnat.
But based on your “speculation” it’s reasonable for me to suggest your posts are at the behest of Obama, due to your fear of a tax audit.
Isn’t it much more likely? I have much more faith in Dick Cheney’s courage and integrity.
I support your right to agree with Cheney that we should support Mitt Romney or that we should oppose a federal marriage amendment, if you happen to agree with him there too.
Despite the fact that I agree with Dick Cheney on almost everything else, I will exercise my right to disagree with him on those two points.
Certainly as someone who donated to McCain/Palin, made phone calls for them, went around town putting up signs for them, attended G.W. Bush and Palin rallies and of course voted for them, I am not an Obama supporter. So there is no basis for your insulting insinuation. I am a conservative who will support any ticket that is MOSTLY conservative. Mitt Romney has proven by his record he is MOSTLY a liberal and a perennial liar to boot. It’s impossible for a conservative patriot such as myself to help him OR Obama get to the White House in any way. The leaders of the Republican party are dying to marginalize conservatives to “broaden their base.” The only way that will stop is if we conservatives withdraw our support from their party when they hand us a candidate like Romney.
Ok so YOUR bonafides are so good as a conservative I should never have applied your own tactic and accused you of doing Obama’s bidding due to a fear of tax audits....
However, you thought it reasonable to impugn Dick Cheney’s motivations?
Unless your name is Barry Goldwater’s ghost I’ll go out on a limb here that Dick Cheney deserved a little more respect in this regard.
