McCain: I endorse Mike Enzi over Liz Cheney
hotair ^ | July 22, 2013 | Allahpundit

Posted on 07/22/2013 4:41:37 PM PDT by Mozilla

Yet another reason to find the Enzi/Cheney race fascinating. Tough call here for Maverick. Does he strike a blow for incumbency by backing his pal Mike, even though it means siding with “wacko bird” nemesis, Rand Paul? Or does he strike a blow for interventionism by endorsing the tea-party favorite Cheney? Here’s the answer, via the Corner. McCain endorsing anyone named “Cheney” at this point was a long shot, incumbent opponent or no. He’s been at odds with Dick sporadically for at least 10 years, dating back to the Bush tax cuts, then to the debate over enhanced interrogation, and then to Cheney’s criticism of him after leaving office for his VP pick and his bizarre political strategy during the 2008 financial crisis. (Cheney wasn’t above publicly knocking McCain in the heat of the 2008 presidential campaign either.) Liz Cheney actually took McCain’s side last year after her father called Palin’s VP selection a mistake, a shrewd move for an aspiring Senate candidate planning to run as a tea partier in a red state. That plus super-hawkishness, and still — Maverick’s unambiguously for Enzi here.

Even so, is she better off having McCain on the other side? Maverick might be seen as a respected elder statesman by Wyoming Republicans who don’t follow politics closely even though the national base rants about him daily.

McCain hated Dick Cheney so this isn’t shocking.

Call McCain stupid if you like, but he knows this is the most sure fire way to curse Enzi, denying him even one vote.

LOL

Enzi is the best choice. Liz Cheney is a RINO, New World Order pusher.

How could McCain not support Cheney? He loves war, invading countries, bombing places, attacking anyone with drones. He and Liz love the same things.

I don’t know Enzi from a Laplander, but I would suspect he is better than Liz. For one thing, he doesn’t come with all the baggage.

Perhaps someone else can enlighten me, but for now I’m down on Liz. I’m sick and tired of people who support the Leftist agenda running on our tickets.

Any time I've seen Liz on talk shows she has been anything but a RINO. That's all I know about her...she spoke up and didn't let the Dems smack her around. That's all I know about her.

I don't like incumbents!

I figured as much. I couldn’t listen to it all. There was a while when I was listening I thought it was Phyllis Schlafly he was talking to. Her voice sounded like Phyllis’ voice for a while there, at least to me, it was a period of time he was heaping praise on her without mentioning she was running for office.

Then I figured out who it was, and then I was trying to connect his favorable comments to who it actually turned out to be. Quite surreal to say the least.

Phyllis Schlafly is a great Conservative IMO. Liz, well, she’s no Schlafly.

Yep, just like Hitlery was.

Liz should run in Virginia where she has her primary residence.

PSSST, Mozilla,

Just a LITTLE HINT.

Don’t just keep hitting SEND. SEND, SEND, SEND.

Take a look at the progress bar on the bottom left of your effing screen.

Notice, it says “SENDING” or something along those lines.

Sheesh, newbies, what a pain.

lol, just messin with you!

Hey, Mozilla, my momma was frightened by a broken record when I was born! But it didn’t affect me any, affect me any, affect me any, affect me any,.....

Mary Cheney is the lesbian. Liz, on the other hand, is happily married to a man, Philip Perry, and has five children.

I don't think he's quite so savvy, the MSM just looooves putting him in the forefront because he's a pubbie that works against a lot of conservative stuff, and anyone that will do that for them is all over the news.

If he was savvy he would have been elected.........

Liz is tough on certain things but is a New World Order pusher just like her dad. She is a defender of anything that insures the success of special interests promoting the New World Order.

And against an incumbent Democrat, where it can actually do some good.

Quiet a situation. Both Rand Paul and John McCain dislike Dick Cheney and so are backing Enzi.

Do a little homework before you make a remark like that.

I detest McCain as much as anyone but he’s right on this one.

That seems to indicate you think he didn't get exactly what he wanted.

I'm not convinced of that.

"You have nothing to fear from an Obama administration?" LOL

There's at least a plausible case to be made that McCain got exactly what he wanted, the footnote of losing against the first Black candidate for the presidency.
