Skip to comments.Cheney calls Obama 'unmitigated disaster' in post-surgery speech
Posted on 04/15/2012 10:48:00 AM PDT by Kaslin
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’s obviously right about Obama, but how do you praise Mitt Romney?
God bless Dick C. Glad to see him up and kicking.
Because if we don’t unify and throw the communists out of the government, we simply may not have a Republic in four years. We truly face that risk now.
A disaster is an incompetent President with good intentions..
Zero is an obvious in your face “bragging” traitor.. performing sedition..
Theres a difference. Cheney wants to stay on the cocktail circuit..
What a beautiful Daughter tho..
May God bless Mr. Cheny....and allow him to help us throw them out!
>>how do you praise Mitt Romney?
Birds of an inbred “ficscally” conservative feather.
His daughter is a homosexual activist. How’s that happen?
Same ol’ crap from the GOPe imperial elite.
>>What a beautiful Daughter tho..
Dick Cheney’s Gay Daughter Pregnant
Old news, so what?
Agreed. I don’t like Romney but I sure as hell can see where Barry wants to take us. We also have to unify locally and state-wide and start getting more conservatives in place at every level.
Shes still “hot”...
Laz you got some splaining to do
>> so what?
So fiscal “Conservatism”, ISN’T.
Here’s an idea. Why not let the primary process play out, find out where Romney wants to take us, and let the delegates at the Convention in August decide how to get a conservative in place at the Presidential level?
We really don’t need this career federal government employee or the rest of his career government employee family telling us to short circuit the process to put in the candidate that retired private-citizen Cheney favors.

You praise him by comparing him to Obama... and maybe by focusing on his business acumen and his sterling family life.
EVA: Old news, so what...
what happens now?Scott Toomey: Well, now, uh, Ken Mehlman, R. Clarke Cooper, Meghan McCain, Mary Cheney and I wait until nightfall, and then leap out of the Fithcally Conthervative log cabin, taking The Party(tm) by surprise -- not only by surprise, but totally unarmed!EVA: Who leaps out?Scott Toomey: Uh, Ken Mehlman, R. Clarke Cooper, Meghan McCain, Mary Cheney and I. Uh, leap out of the log cabin, uh and uh....EVA: Oh....Scott Toomey: Oh.... Um, l-look, if we built this large wooden Rhinocerous -- [twong]ALL: Run away! Run away! Run away! Run away! [splat]
"The [my] only connection [to the Republican Party]is I'm registered as a Republican"--Mitt RRRRRomney
So NO SALE, that's SO WHAT.
Glad to see him looking. May he live long and prosper.
Also dreading his being thrown under the bus for supporting Romney.
He couldn’t be less abused here if he came out for Obama.
I tend to agree, but damned if I'm going to prevaricate about Romney ... at least not to myself.
I have respected and admired Dick Cheney for too long to turn on him over this.
However, I adamantly disagree with him on his support for Romney.
I will NOT, under any circumstances or at the recommendation of any person, vote or in anyway support Romney.
I have long said that the very moment that Romney becomes the nominee, Obama wins another 4 years.
Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again. ~ Ronald Reagan, from his first inaugural speech as governor of California, January 5, 1967
Ronald Reagans warning about losing our freedoms echoes down through a generation of lost momentum and squandered opportunity.
We now have the most ignorant electorate in the history of American elections. I believe we have the most corrupt government and media our country has ever seen.
I believe that Newt was the one leader that could have turned our country away from the abyss, intelligently and quickly.
It is abundantly clear that not enough folks shared my beliefs, instead of a leader, they wanted a preacher.... and far too many lacked the courage to forgive and look beyond the personal sins in a mans past and into the promise of a brighter future for our country. That is certainly a free choice and a personal choice.... and as it is with all choices, there will be consequences.
Vote your conscience, I most certainly will mine.
In any case, Americans will get the country it apparently wants and a country it so richly deserves.
Under the bus with Cheney, LOL!
This place is nuts.
Donor is unknown. maybe he got a RINO heart ?
It happens when your mom and dad are really not conservatives at all.
"To start, Lewis recruited people from his Mormon church in Southern California. But over time, his con grew legs and expanded well beyond the confines of his community...."
I like Cheney, but I can’t help but believe he could’ve saved us from this nightmare by objecting when he oversaw the Electoral College. Yes, it would’ve been unprecedented and controversial, but America never had a kenyan would- be dictator usurping the ofiice of potus before.
>>Shes still hot...
Only to those for whom the little head in their pants evidently receives greater blood flow than the one allegedly on top of their shoulders.
LOL... You seem to have a low appreciation of beauty..
Something can be beautiful without sexual connotations..
Like Jackie Evancho is beautiful.. only a “perv” would have any other agenda..
Other than appreciating beauty for its own sake.. just because it “IS”..
...how do you praise Mitt Romney?
Once had a huge crush on Cheney (yes, I am a woman), but now I realize that he is really part of the RINO establishment.
AKA Mary Claire Cheney
Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Lesbian daughter of Dick Cheney
Not in any form of the word except maybe as a "hot" commodity for consumption by RINO Log-cabin activists and their Useful Idiot supporters who are bent upon further demoralizing what remains of American socio-biological fitness.
I was talking about Liz.. Duuuugh..
Cheney’s actions at the certification of electoral votes has been a serious and disgusting feeling for me. When he did not offer the traditional opportunity for challenge the signal was given that something very critical for the USA was being staged. To this day there is some kind of ghostly political cloud enveloping the USA. I consider myself a pragmatic person not subject to whims of imagination. However, when there are so many historical dots to be connected about Obama I have the feeling of something so much more expansive than what generations of USA citizens have lived through or imagined.
He looks good, doesn’t he?
You need to get over your hatred
It is none of your business
Excellent point. Why drum up old news?
Uhuh. She’s about as “hot” as ZBig Brzezinski’s NWO Uberspawn.
Very well said. Some people just can’t get over their hatred
"According to my opinion, and the opinions of many defectors of my caliber, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such. The other 85% is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare. What it basically means is: to change the perception of reality of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country.It's a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages.The first stage being "demoralization"....

Don't need no Weatherman to see which way the wind
"Behind the Violence, Says Jane Alpert, Was Sex"--November 09, 1981--
"The leaders of the Weather Underground, she believes, followed a similar pattern of constantly shifting sexual alliances..."
"He [Bill Ayers] also writes about the Weathermen's sexual experimentation as they tried to 'smash monogamy.' The Weathermen were 'an army of lovers,' he says, and describes having had different sexual partners, including his best male friend."
Source: New York Times, September 11, 2001: "No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives; In a Memoir of Sorts, a War Protester Talks of Life With the Weathermen"
"...the Weathermen, when not engaged in group sex, committed such revolutionary acts as parading with a Viet Cong flag through a local park on Independence Day and spray-painting the walls of a high school with the slogans, "Off the Pigs," "Viet Cong Will Win," and "F#$k U.S. Imperialism."..."
"What happens next bears watching closely, as does the response of the president, ex-Speaker Pelosi, and others on the left. Encouraged by leftists in the Democratic Party and funded by left-leaning nonprofit organizations and celebrity contributors, Occupy Wall Street may in time morph into something resembling the radical factions of the late 1960s and 1970s."
LoL... You are a hard case.. Bill..
Because it's relevant to the socio-biological reproductive strategy and moral character of the EX-vp & Co., and what impact their political influence will (or WON'T) have upon the socio-biological fitness of those of us who do not share the social liberality which he has sired.... especially in its effort to further the homosexual agenda.
You remind me of that time when...
Hey, Moses has been up on that hill an awful long time - he and his God must be dead; so screw them and their moral law. We'll just throw all our gold into the fire and worship what comes out, again.
It's a Ba'al out, get it? FAIL.
The only way that arrogant pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave wins another 4 years is if people like you would rather stay home or vote for a third party candidate, instead the nominee. I will vote for the nominee whoever it is. I will hold my nose if Ron Paul is the nominee, and it’s not the first time I have done so
When did he oversee the electoral college. I didn’t know that
By doing so you fail
>>You need to get over your hatred
Tsk Tsk. Hatred! Bigotry! Been drinking from the Progressive Rainbow Newspeak Dictionary again have you Kaslin?
It’s not hatred to recognize the Transhumanist / Postgenderist agenda for what it is.
Or what it has been...
It’s a simple conservative application of logic, reason, and observation.
And I decline to further the agenda for a bunch of self-gratifying Ubermensch wannabes and their progressive Useful Idiot supporters — because doing that, wouldn’t be CONSERVATIVE at all.
” I will hold my nose if Ron Paul is the nominee....”
I could vote for the crazy man, but I WILL NEVER vote for Romney, period.
