Skip to comments.Cheney's Shocking Attack On Palin - Was Dick Cheney Ever a True Conservative?
Posted on 08/02/2012 8:53:50 AM PDT by pinochet
Did you all read Dick Cheney's outrageous and offensive attack on Sarah Palin? He said that it was a mistake for John McCain to select her as running mate in 2008.
After all the hell that Palin, her husband, and her children, have suffered being attacked by the mainstream media in the most personal terms, we get to hear this garbage coming out of Dick Cheney's mouth. I am still shaking with rage over Cheney's stupidity and lack of shame. Cheney should be ashamed of himself, and he should apologize. Palin electrified American conservatives in a way in which no candidate on the Presidential ticket has, with the exception of Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan. Palin is the Goldwater and Reagan of our time, because all three conservative heroes were opposed by the corrupt Rockefeller Republicans. Sarah appeals to church-going people, which makes her very appealing to the Reagan Democrats who share her social values. It was McCain who lost the election, not Palin.
Cheney's disgusting attack, forces us to look at his alleged conservative credentials. Cheney was Gerald Ford's White House Chief of Staff, when America suffered its first military defeat in the 20th Century, when America removed its troops from Vietnam. Cheney played a role in the greatest humiliation that America has ever suffered in it's history. The only other military defeat that America suffered was by Britain in the War of 1812, but Britain was the world's leading super power in that time. Cheney, Gerald Ford, and Nelson Rockefeller, caused America to be defeated by Vietnam, a third world hell hole. Gerald Ford was the Jimmy Carter of the Republican Party, and Cheney was his top advisor.
Cheney served in the Cabinet of GHW Bush, when he called for a new world order. Like Bush Sr. and Gerald Ford, Cheney is a Rockefeller Republican, who has succeeded in fooling people that he is a conservative. His open support for his daughter Mary's lesbian lifestyle, and for gay rights in general, shows his contempt for America's Bible believing Christians who love God more than they love corporate profits. Shame on you Dick Cheney!
I think this is an over reaction on your part and I would be careful to not fall into the cult of personality thing for Palin. I like her too but she has said some things that whe was wrong about as well. Like stating that Condi Rice would make a good VP pick. Totally and utterly wrong.
I'm glad his daughter quickly set him right, but the damage was already done by that point.
Mmmm ... I don't think so...
Begs the question... where did they get the heart they sewed into him
Dick Cheney is a RINO Turd in the vein of Poppy Bush, Geranl Ford and George Rommney.
Huh, I thought we won the war of 1812.
See for yourself
“His allegiance has always been to the Bushes”, and the Fords.
>>>>I like her too but she has said some things that whe was wrong about as well. Like stating that Condi Rice would make a good VP pick. Totally and utterly wrong
Ronald Reagan made mistakes as well, such as being a Democrat for many years. Reagan openly admitted that mistake in reply to a question from Sam Donaldson. See this clip:
Condi Rice would sure as heck make a better VP that the dolt we have now!
I hadn’t thought about Cheney being a Rockefeller man, but he was; did he urge Rockefeller to step down in favor of Dole, another “winner”?
Cheney = Gravitas
He was the foundation of his ticket, because Bush was easily flustered on the podium. Plus Cheney had significant international exposure.
But McCain was no Bush. He was too old, too GREEN, too RINO. That ticket needed Palin more than anything. She’s a political rock star. The gay dominated media know it and are afraid.
Until this past month, independents did not understand that there is such a thing as a gay mafia controlling much of news and entertainment. And now, big city mayors.
“Cheney, Gerald Ford, and Nelson Rockefeller, caused America to be defeated by Vietnam..” uhhh NOPE, it was MacNamera, LBJ and a WORTHLESS Piece of SH!T DEM “Congress”!
Dick Cheney expressed his opinion that Palin, as VP, was not ready to take over the US presidency in 2008. He represented the OLD SCHOOL inside DC GOP think.
Personally I think Cheney made a mistake, but that does not qualify as 'attack Palin'.
McCain’s campaign did a great job picking Palin..the problem is they did a poor job defending her and in some cases did some negative piling on themselves. In that sense she was not the best pick for VP for that particular campaign.
Note that his own daughter also put him in his place, as did Palin, both effectively, without trashing him.
Stupidity, thanks, Dick.
Sorry, I mean thanks dick.
