Anyone think it was a ruse to keep another tea party type out?
End of Cheney Circus ping!
First casualty of the 2014 was a carpetbagger.
Maybe she can go home and run for something in Virginia.
If liz ran as a Democrat, it might be a very good way to insure a Tea Party victory.
GOPe is popping the champagne corks!
Liz really blew it big time!
She was once the darling of many conservatives, but not anymore.
Good. Her efforts would have been applauded if she had run against a Democrat incumbent...taking on Enzi wasn’t smart.
Why not run in Virginia?
No, more likely this opens up the way for a TP conservative to run.
Another TP conservative, but not so well known.
The bad news is that the media will say that this is proof that an ultra-conservative, bona fide leader of the tea party movement was defeated before the race began in ultra-conservative Wyoming proving the tea party movement is dead and the likes of Cruz no longer hold sway over the GOP which can now get things done with Demoncrats — such as immigration reform.
The fact that Cheney is a RINO will never enter the discussion. The news means what the media tells people it means.
Time to send all Cheneys into obscurity.

In my opinion, anyone who seriously categorizes Enzi as a RINO needing TP opposition has a reserved seat on the tin-foil trolley.
Even reading the comments on this thread, I continue to be amazed at how many conservatives think that carpetbagging, gay-marriage-supporting Liz is an appropriate candidate against a decent incumbent.
Rush interviewed when she first announced her candidacy and she didn't give one straight answer. She sounded like a typical political bullsh*tter. She brought absolutely nothing new to the table.
I’m suspicious. The establishment Repubs are all about keeping current Repubs in office. One has to wonder what Cheney was promised. What is the price to drop out of this race? We haven’t heard the end of this yet.
IMHO, its hard to say what Liz had in mind but in the end, she was smart enough to know she couldn’t win and bowed out early.
Something the following couldn’t figure out:
Best news of the New Year!
I agree with those who claim that Cheney's candidacy was from the very get-go a false flag operation, designed to win over grassroots conservatives to a mainstream GOP candidate instead of an authentic one.
