SRLC: Liz Cheney Lays Into Obama Agenda
Real Clear Politics ^ | April 8, 2010 | Kyle Trygstad

Posted on 04/09/2010 2:17:48 PM PDT by La Enchiladita

NEW ORLEANS -- Any Republican in the hotel ballroom who hadn't heard Liz Cheney speak before likely walked away impressed. In a nearly 30-minute speech, the former vice president's daughter laid into the Obama administration over health care, foreign policy and national security, concluding that the country simply deserves better.

"2010 and 2012 are going to be critical years in the long history of this great republic, and we have to make our voices heard," said Cheney. "We have to stand up and fight."

Cheney called the health care reform bill "one of the most arrogant power plays in American history." On national security, she said "someone needs to keep reminding this president that foreign terrorists do not have constitutional rights."

She called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's reception in Washington two weeks ago "disgraceful," and said President Obama doesn't understand that "the world is safer when there is no daylight between the United States and the state of Israel."

The speech received rousing ovations during and after, and opened the three-day Southern Republican Leadership Conference.

Why is it that the ONLY REAL LEADERS that I can see in the Republican party are WOMEN?

Not that having women in leadership is a problem, but, as Denny Kenaston would say, “WHERE ARE THE MEN?”

Other than that, I could support Liz Cheney, Michelle Bachman, or Sarah Palin as president/vice-president, not necessarily in that order, and in any combination.

(See: Women's liberation movement)

Assertive, confident women are praised; assertive, confident men are attacked and feared. (Speaking about our society in general, post-women's-lib...)

After decades of boys and men being pushed toward passivity, what else do we expect?

Who is Denny Kenaston?:-)

The men are busy working hard, holding down the fort, etc. Mike Pence is vocal on his Facebook page, has held pressers and I’m looking forward to HIS speech at the conference too.

I’m looking at this gender-wise but in terms of leadership skills.

Check him out.

If you want to raise a Godly family, Denny has the best vision that I’ve heard.

Hmmm, I sense a bumper sticker -

“Our women have more b*lls than the entire set of democratic (er, communist) party males.”

I am searching. In the meantime, here are the “hottest quotes” from the SRLC:

“Iran watches as this administration answers their threats with weakness, confusion and self serving lectures that put down America and diminishes our achievements. Now that kind of talk could win you a Nobel Prize.” — Liz Cheney

“When you speak from the heart, you don’t need a teleprompter.” — Newt Gingrich

“Attorney General Holder says that the lawyers who represent the detainees are patriots because they are representing ‘the unpopular’ well for the record unpopular is not the word Americans would use to describe terrorists attempting to attack this nation” – Liz Cheney

“Congressman Waxman, being an egocentric centralized figure of political power beyond the reach of normal humility…” — Newt Gingrich

“The president or his team don’t respond well to challenge or correction. Well here is a piece of news for them, 2010 is going to be a year of challenge and its going to end in a major correction.” — Liz Cheney

“The longer Obama talked, the less the American people believed him.” — Newt Gingrich on healthcare

“Edward Kennedy’s seat was captured by a Republican who was opposed to Obamacare. How can you get a better signal?” — Newt Gingrich

“Some might think that George Bush had his shortcomings, but let me tell you…history’s going to be kind to George W. Bush.” — J.C. Watts

“We’ve got a generation of Americans that…[don’t] remember when “blackberry” was a fruit.” — J.C. Watts

LOL

The GOP women and Paul Ryan. Maybe Eric Cantor, Mike Pence and Jim DeMint. Don’t hear much from my Senators Sessions and Shelby these days, just crickets. They need to stand up and start calling this administration out . . . All of ‘em.

Sessions is wonderful. He’s been a hero many times. It is time for the next generation to step forward though, imo, and I think that is what is happening.

I noticed too we haven’t heard from Jeff in a while... hope he’s okay.

Hmmmmmmmm I was responding to your post # 13 which has many quotes by Newt, Watts, etc and only one by Liz. I was just adding to the list of your quotes.

Sorry

Don’t even really know where she is from and where she might seek election.

I believe Mary is the daughter who worked for Coors. Liz earned her undergrad in Colorado. That state would be favorable for Liz to take a run at the Senate.

I found this great quote from Mary:

Cheney’s sister Mary Cheney is quoted as saying, “I think you’d be hard-pressed to find any daylight at all between Liz’s and my father’s views. It’s not because she’s been indoctrinated. It’s because he’s right.”

Messages is confused.

I thought I was alone supporting Cheney.

CB would be a solid ticket.

Cheney has the intellectual horsepower and in particluar the gravitas that has missing on the right. Too many charactatures (sp) on right.

Palin more suited to RNC and could bring in dollars.

“insert ‘not’ between ‘I’m’ and ‘looking’...”

OK! I won’t look, LOL!

I knew what you meant. It totally AMAZES me how so FEW in our party are LEADERS. And the women probably stand out because the retards (yes, I meant to say that!) in the media think Conservative women are so weird that they can’t look away, LOL!

Good Golly! It’s not that hard! I do it every day. Plan the work, then work the plan. Granted, it’s just a little shop in a little town, but when I leave a ‘To-Do’ list for my employees on the few days I’m not there, they crawl over one another to be the first to DO SOMETHING and to cross it off the list!

People CRAVE direction and they desire being part of something bigger than themselves. Ask President Reagan!

Lead. Follow. Or get OUT of the way!
