Dick Cheney to Hillary Clinton: Run!

LOS ANGELES — Hillary Clinton for president?

“So far she hasn’t said she would, but I think it’s not a bad idea,” former Vice President Dick Cheney told ABC’s Jonathan Karl in an interview on Wednesday to promote his new book “In My Time.”

Cheney declined to say whether he thought the current Secretary of State would have been a better president than Barack Obama, but called her a “pretty formidable individual.”

“I think she’s probably the most competent person they’ve got in their– in their cabinet. And– frankly, I thought she was gonna win the nomination last time around,” Cheney said. “Maybe if– the Obama record is bad enough– and these days it’s not very good, given the shape of the economy maybe there will be enough ferment– in the Democratic Party so that there will be a primary on their side.”

During the interview, Cheney criticized several of the Republican presidential candidates, including front-runner Rick Perry whose comments about Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, Cheney described as “over-the-top.”

While Cheney sounded positive notes about Clinton, he said not to expect him to endorse anyone on the Republican side anytime soon.

“I don’t plan to endorse anybody till we get a lot farther down the road,” he said.

I’m irritated though that he believes any ‘negative’ remarks about Bernake and the policies of the fed are over the top.

He’s ok with the Fed?? That’s disturbing

Of course he's ok with the Fed & irritated over any criticism of Bernake or the Fed. Cheney has some good points, but he is first & foremost a globalist, believer in the New World Order and a bona fide member of the left-wing, socialist, globalist Council on Foreign Relations. Your membership is not going to be renewed if you knock the Fed or any other elitist institution.

but called her (Hillary Clinton) a “pretty formidable individual.”

“I think she’s probably the most competent person they’ve got in their– in their cabinet.....

During the interview, Cheney criticized several of the Republican presidential candidates, including front-runner Rick Perry

So Dick Cheney feels that Hillary Clinton is a formidable opponent? and is the most competent person in 0dumb0's cabinet? Well that's not surprising considering that pretty much all of 0dumb0's other appointments are either grossly incompetent or just flat out commie pigs who belong in prison, not the U.S. government.

But seriously, tell me Dick Cheney, other than Hillary being first lady for AK governor Bubba, and then first lady during Bubba's lecherous 8 years, what exactly has Hillary ever accomplished in any thing? She's been Bill Clinton's sidekick for most of her life? And her senate career or accomplishments were pretty much zilch, and she is unaccomplished as Sec of State.

And yet Cheney criticizes the Repub presidential nominees and praises Hitlary.

What is it with former Repubs? Can't they just STFU and remain silent rather than praising demoRATs or 0dumb0 or Hitlary, and then criticising Repubs, especially conservative or TEA Party Repubs. Cheney is just another elitist Repuke, who hates the TEA Party movement and would rather just have Repubs in the perpetual sniveling minority or appeasing the demoRATs socialist agenda.

P.S., don't misinterpret Cheney's remarks. He is not pushing Hillary.

I disagree. I think that is exactly what Cheney is doing, is praising the non-existent accomplishments & non-existent credentials of Hitlary and then turning around and criticising & bashing conservative Repub candidates for president or the TEA Party.

I think that establishment Repubs like Cheney & other Washington DC Repub elitists are scared to death of the TEA Party and conservative Repubs who refuse to toe the sniveling, pandering, appeasing Party line.

Cheney the western Republican and I parted company years back when he became an active proponent of the ‘new world order’. He seems now to be raking out the dirt piles.

I'm truly sickened over his remarks. I believed he was the one true conservative in the administration. I'm sickened that these people (politicians) have been working diligently, unbeknownest to ‘us’, the Americans (who have been financing these bastards) towards a complete one world order. I knew and expected it from the scummy democrats but Cheney?

If you are on that train, as we all are, she would be a disaster too.

Agree.

I think it would be much harder for the GOP nominee against Her Thighness instead of the Marxist in Chief in 2012.

Most non-politico people I know believe she is a "moderate." And they will probably associate her with the economy during the Clinton years.

But, she is in fact a hard core leftist. She did, after all, create and champion socialized medicine (HillaryCare), she describes herself as a "progressive" and she co-founded the vile Soros Leftist group Center for American Progress. She is anything BUT the "moderate" image she tries to convey.

Why on earth would Cheney suggest Hillary? What the hell is he thinking? It's very disappointing. Ruling Class Elite indeed.

Those juvenile hooligans also ripped all of the Ws off of every keyboard in the White House, and smeared feces on the walls of the bathrooms.

It’s disgusting.

And Clinton, as you said, is a hard core leftist. But kara, the American public is asleep; hearing only ‘snippets’ on the news or having ‘selective’ memory of her (if any memory at all) so they think: “democrat”, “better than Obama”...I’ll vote for her”; not understanding that the country is literally at stake. Ignorance is going to do us in and finish the job started by the bastard in the WH.

Yep. That’s why it’s up to Freepers/Tea Party Patriots to let people know how serious the 2012 elections are. We cannot let the MSM and other sources of liberal propaganda prevail over the uninformed and ignorant. It won’t be easy, but it must and can be done. My aunt, a life long straight R voter, is a perfect example. She gets all of her “news” from the morning shows. She has no clue what is happening and parrots the “Palin is an idiot”, Obama is “moving to the center” and other nonsense that the media feeds her. So, one thing we can do effectively is illuminate and inform friends and family who are like that. God willing we will prevail, take back the WH, and have strong *true* conservative numbers in the House and Senate.

During the GWB years, my liberal neighbor (drives a Turquoise 1968 VW Bus, get the picture?) had a bumper sticker, “I miss Bill Clinton.”

Since I hate Slick Willy, I chastised him for it to no end.

Recently I told him I actually miss Bill Clinton, given that we now have a marxist President Narcissus in the WH.

Of course, we need a conservative instead, but Clinton was NOTHING COMPARED TO THIS IMPOTENT, DISHONEST LOSER in the WH.

That said, Hitlery has matured considerably since her Hillarycare and she would have indeed made a better Pres than Obutthole. Notice she wasn’t even pushing Healthcare as much this time around?

Now with Cheney “endorsing” her (sort of), that’s a compliment from our perspective but a true insult from the left’s perspective.

Cheney’s one smart dude. I hope he lives a long, long time.

By becoming Secretary of State for Obama, she’s the international face of the Obama administration. There’s no going back. She’s forever linked directly to Obama and will not be able to wash that away.

And it's reported that Hillary was the voice of reason against leaving only 3000 troops in Iraq, but was outvoted. Hilary the voice of reason, never thought I'd type that.

When Hillary is the "voice of reason" in this Administration, you know we've landed in Bizzaro World.

Surprised? I’m not. I like and respect Dick Cheney, but he’s undeniably as “insider elite Republican” as one can be.

——maybe there will be enough ferment——

Ferment, what a great thought. The moonbats must ferment to get change. That means rioting and burning stuff. It means cops with clubs ands shields retreating before punks in LA and Philly and maybe even Cinci.

There are only 2 ways for the dems to replace Obama without ticking off black folks.

#1-One way would be to let him go down with a current scandal that is brewing.

#2-

Cheney is old school PC politics.Bernake is going against the best interests of this country so what if Perry was extra blunt?The tea party created no more PC BS Cheney; so shut up.As far as Hillary I think he said this to get the left busy on this as it will further make Obama a loser.

My guess is that the Dems will pick way #2 with a psycho Manchurian complete with a carefully faked up resume as a right wing TEA Partying extremist.

By the time the Marx Stream Media get done, Islamobama will be the next JFK.

I hope to God I’m wrong and I hope they fail if they do try it!

>>Some FReepers have (credibly) asserted that the Baraqqis have a tactical nuke they can use on the Clintons if needed.

>>And that was the reason the Clintons, despite their vaunted private investigative team, never went after Baraq’s extremely suspect personal history.

Sounds plausible, except Zero seems to be the guy that Chicago backers picked and were grooming to take over after Hildabeast’s eight years as president. The Clinton’s don’t completely run the show either. The power brokers liked Zero just as much, plus he had the advantage of being the historic first black president. So the plan changed.

I doubt that Zero has a tactical nuke against the Clintons, or even if so, that he would be allowed to use it. The marxist RAT oligarchy wants to keep the W.H. and will use whichever minority puppet seems necessary to accomplish that.

At the end of the day, listening to each side, sometimes...sometimes...one can only draw the conclusion that they ARE in fact on the same side - the only difference is the degree of how fast we get “there” - one brand wants to take us to socialist hell on the slow river boat, and the other brand wants us to ride the express train straight to communist hell.

Not all of ours; obviously the RINOs and liberals on our team.

We seriously need to purge them from our ranks.

In the real world, Clinton would destroy Palin. She is not touched by the Obama coattails. She’s at STATE, she doesn’t make economic decisions. She’s still attached to the Clinton name and many people think 1992-2000 was rosy....he had little to do with it, but he lucked out on timing.

Palin would be destroyed.
