The news of Cheneys interview airing on ABC tomorrow morning (Monday) on GMA is making its Sunday-rounds. The MSM couldnt be happier.
While the entire interview has yet to be released, it appears Mr. Cheney has decided to do his part for his establishment-buddies by attacking his own partys last VP nominee in lieu of going after the nations biggest elected mistake of all time Barack Obama. In response, good conservatives all across the web are responding.
Mark Levin stated this morning: (emphasis)
John McCain ran a terrible campaign; the Bush-Cheney administration had become very unpopular with the American people, including many Republicans; and the Bush-Cheney administration was every bit as activist when it came to expanding domestic spending and government activism as the Nixon administration. The continuing attacks on leaders of grassroots conservatives by the Republican establishment, especially former Bush administration officials, need to end now. They got their nominee and they need to focus on Obama.
Tony Lee over at Breitbart said:
Cheney, who led the vice presidential search that picked Nelson Rockefeller for Gerald Fords VP, is probably more comfortable with a vice presidential candidate who has similar establishment bona fides to Rockefeller, which Palin obviously lacks.
Cheney said about Palin:
"I dont think she passed that test of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake.
He might have a point.
Apparently, Palins not ready to sit in an administration for eight years which added 5 trillion dollars to our unpaid debt basically demoralizing the spirit of conservatism leading to four years of Barack Obama. Cheney was ready for that, wasnt he?
Palins not ready to engage in cronyism which dictates who shed appoint to lifetime positions on the Supreme Court or to head federal emergency agencies like FEMA. Bush & Cheney were ready for that, werent they?
Palin is ready to balance a budget since she did it in Alaska.
Palin is ready to increase benefits for our esteemed elders while cutting out wasteful spending existing all across our federal government since she did similar things in Alaska.
Palin is ready to call out entrenched special interests like she did when she served up a little justice to the Republican Partys good old boys and their dealings with big oil. She did that in Alaska, too. Palins ready to unabashedly call out Barack Obama. This includes pointing out his past associations, his reckless squandering of billions of our dollars to pay back his Wall Street friends (just as Bush/Cheney once did), and his plans to whip Americans into Greece-like big-government submission. This is in contrast to the establishments plans to hold back.
Palins ready to endorse countless candidates for the Congress. Shes been successful at using her enormous grassroots influence to pull a great deal of them across the finish line.
Palins not ready to fall in line with the establishment. Until any candidate (including our perceived front-runner) demonstrates a full willingness to truly unify with the partys grassroots, dont count on her to make deals behind closed doors or hold high-priced fundraisers at her home.
Considering everything Bush & Company were ready for, its no wonder why Barack Obama was ever put in the position of becoming President of our great Republic. Now of course, he must be fired.
But after observing the behavior of Cheney, Sununu, and other Romney surrogates, it might serve the interest of the American people to ask whether or not Romney is truly ready to do that considering the company he chooses to keep.
...and these jerks want me to vote for Romney. Yah, right! Doesn’t Cheney know that you don’t insult the conservatives until AFTER the election?
Dick must have had some godless liberal’s heart implanted into his chest as he spoke out against Sarah Palin and endorsed Sodomite Marriage.
I like Cheney, I like Palin but obviously Cheney had 100 times her experience and he thinks that’s important.
With all of the GOOBers, who are supposed to be on “our side”, constantly ripping and blasting Republicans in the “media”, I really don’t see why this country even needs DemocRATS.
I used to like Cheney, but after his daughter “married” her girlfriend with his blessing, I lost all respect for him.
I really have no tolerance for anti Dick Cheney comments. Further, his comment on Sarah Palin has not a damn thing to do with Romney. I’m sure Cheney thinks he’s better than all of them.
I’ve said all along the GOP doesn’t intend to win the white house. America is a mess and fixing it will require heavy lifting that will bring unrest and they don’t want anything to do with that.
Every candidate other than Romney would have been a far better action candidate but the GOP wanted a soft non threatening globalist who won’t rock the boat.
Love how those of you who criticize Cheney don’t realize YOU are turning on a conservative. He expressed his opinion and good for him. Who cares.
Never could have remotely imagined it a few short years ago, but I’m now 100% convinced that the GOP establishment would VASTLY prefer to live under an Obama presidency as opposed to a Republican one headed by Palin and/or the tea party. I have absolutely ZERO trust in the GOP leadership nowadays, regardless of issue.
Where is Cheney’s executive experience? When did he ever balance any budget saved for maybe his own family checking account while W. Bush spent the nations money crazy like a drunken sailor. Cheneys experience is sitting by allowing cronyism and government growth go unabated all of his time in D.C.
I propose that dementia be known as Dick’s Disease.
Give 'em what they want and stick your finger in their eye in the process.
Cheney expressing the opinion that a more experienced vp candidate is better cannot remotely equal his not wanting to win the White House. It is the exact opposite, it is a solid approach to winning the White House.
I like Cheney - smart fellow. I like the daughter who appears on Fox News. The other daughter, none of my business.
Sarah’s polarizing for some reason. I don’t doubt that the cause is “fear”, the libs fear her. Problem is that they’re loud, obnoxious, rude and will lie through 6 sets of teeth and shout if from every rooftop. They’re brainwashed and they brainwash the weak around them.
Palin supports Condi Rice for VP and she loves McCain. Sarah is not one of us. Get over it.
I don't know, "Does" they really?
How dare Cheney have an opinion. Is that even allowed?
Cheney must have got a liberal rino heart.
