Skip to comments.EXCLUSIVE: Liz Cheney open to political run (daughter of Dick Cheney says politics is on horizon)
Posted on 07/13/2009 11:07:49 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday that running for political office is on her horizon.
"It's something I very well may do," said Elizabeth "Liz" Cheney, a lawyer and State Department appointee who has worked on two Republican presidential campaigns.
Ms. Cheney, 44, has emerged as one of the strongest defenders of the effectiveness and legality of Bush-Cheney policies on enhanced interrogation methods. More recently, she and her father have become two of the most outspoken critics of President Obama's position on terrorism and other national security issues, which has led Republicans to consider her a strong candidate for national political office.
Ms. Cheney told The Washington Times America's Morning News that recent new reports that her father ordered the CIA to hide information from Congress and that a government probe could follow appears like political cover for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats who have accused agency Director Leon Panetta of lying.
"It gets more and more appalling everyday," she said. "I think they're very worried about Speaker Pelosi."

I hope she does. I really do like her. She’s got guts.
Ah, yes. The RINO power behind the throne will try to derail the woman the country wants as Republican front runner. They are so afraid of her that they are jumping in extra early!! GO SARAH PALIN!
Does she support ALL of former POTUS George W. Bush’s controversial positions on issues, including, but not limited to, his adding “Prescription Drugs for Senors” entitlement program, amnesty for illegal immigrants, his stalling of true, full protection for the southern U.S. border, and his “growing of the federal government” on many issues?
