Skip to comments.Liz Cheney Running for President in 2012?
Posted on 11/21/2009 12:58:19 PM PST by rface
When Liz Cheney said Think Cheney 2012″ on the last FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace the panel in the studio and lame stream media later assumed she was talking about her father former VP Dick Cheney. Everybody took the bait and got caught in sexism. She did not say Think Dick Cheney 2012. It never occurred to the Good Ol Boys in the media that Liz Cheney was hinting about a possible run of a Cheney in 2012 like in Liz Cheney 2012″. Why not? The lady is extremely smart and has a whooping resume that tops Hillary and Sarah if you put them together. Lets take a look at who Liz Cheney really is .
Education: Bachelors degree from Colorado College. Senior thesis: The Evolution of Presidential War Powers, in 1988. J.D. degree from the University of Chicago Law School in 1996, having also taken courses in Middle Eastern history at the Oriental Institute.
Seems to me she was looking into the Presidency ever since college.
So what is Liz Cheney doing now, you sexists? Is she baking cookies? May be, but she also is running a non-profit 501(c)4 organization, Keep America Safe. The purpose of the group is to support and defend policies of the Bush/Cheney administration which they believe will keep America safe.
Liz Cheney threw a major trial balloon on a major political show on a major network and nobody noticed? Take the challenge you guys! Think Cheney 2012 Think Liz!

see previous FR post:
Against Sarah? Not a chance.
Let’s make it Palin-Cheney.
The All American All Girl ticket.
How about Palin/Chaney?
Geez, it’s like getting hit with a wet spit ball.
I’ll have to hear a lot more before I can get to excited about this.
As much as I like Ms Cheney, the above statement is not true.
Still I love the notion of her running.
I not one to pan anybody for inexperience but I don’t believe that Liz has run for any elected office to date.
Running for office is a skill in itself. One of the reasons I support Sarah is I know that she deserves a 10 for her talent on the campaign trail. That cannot be underestimated or discounted.
I think Liz should run for a House seat federally or state-wide first.
What about Bachmann?
I think we might see her take on Jim Webb in 2012. Would be great!
At a time when conservatives are craving for someone who has spent their formative years and career outside of Washington, Liz has NO real-world background or executive experience; she is a lawyer who worked on behalf of internationalists and she has worked in the state department. In other words, she's a government bureaucrat/lawyer.
Liz also worked with the Romney campaign.
The ugly truth here is that she'll destroy Palin in a debate, and that what makes it sad, because (assuming this is all true) she is clearly putting her ego ahead of what's good for the nation. Her running for President will just split conservatives and then we'll get a chump like Huckabee/Pawlenty/Romney as the disastrous result.
Liz would be an excellent Secretary of State - and that's pretty much it. I wouldn't even want her for VP because her last name will just turn off independents who remember her father tied with Bush.
I believe the promotion of Liz is from Republican insiders turned off by Palin.
I don’t know a lot about Bachmann. I know I should. Tell me more.
If it means more of the same RINO compassionate conservatism (big gubmint) Liz Cheney can take a hike.
I'll stick with Sarah.
I’m certainly not turned off by Palin but I’m more impressed when I hear Liz speak.
So a member of the Romney campaign who has never run for office before and can’t win her first race which would be for President of the United States, may run anyway?
That would sure muddy the waters for Romney’s only real competition, the female, Governor Palin.
Governor Palin has 16 years of political experience working with the people at the local, state, and federal level.
Liz Cheney is a bureaucrat/internationalist/corporate lawyer.
Palin is far more qualified to be President than Cheney, whose background suggests she would do well in an appointed role. Now I'm not saying that Cheney should be prevented from running for President, and given Palin's nature she'll probably step aside and even support her. But with the political situation we're in, now's not the time to choose someone from the beltway.
I trust that Cheney will do the right thing here, and recognize that Palin has unconditional grassroots support who won't consider any other candidate.
Liz is very articulate and would be an asset in any administration.
Liz for Sarah’s White House Chief of Staff!
