Skip to comments.Cheney calls Obama 'unmitigated disaster' in post-surgery speech
Posted on 04/15/2012 10:48:00 AM PDT by Kaslin
Dick Cheney, just weeks after undergoing heart transplant surgery, plunged back into the political theater Saturday -- praising presumptive nominee Mitt Romney while slamming President Obama as an "unmitigated disaster."
The tough words came during an hour-and-15-minute talk at the Wyoming Republican Party state convention in Cheyenne on Saturday.
He sat in a plush chair throughout the long chat with daughter Liz Cheney and looked decidedly healthier than recent appearances where he has been gaunt and used a cane.
After Rick Santorum dropped out of the race this past week, Cheney in his address urged the party to pull together behind Romney. He said the former Massachusetts governor would do a "whale of a job."
His opinion of the sitting president was less flattering.

He’s obviously right about Obama, but how do you praise Mitt Romney?
God bless Dick C. Glad to see him up and kicking.
Because if we don’t unify and throw the communists out of the government, we simply may not have a Republic in four years. We truly face that risk now.
A disaster is an incompetent President with good intentions..
Zero is an obvious in your face “bragging” traitor.. performing sedition..
Theres a difference. Cheney wants to stay on the cocktail circuit..
What a beautiful Daughter tho..
May God bless Mr. Cheny....and allow him to help us throw them out!
>>how do you praise Mitt Romney?
Birds of an inbred “ficscally” conservative feather.
His daughter is a homosexual activist. How’s that happen?
Same ol’ crap from the GOPe imperial elite.
>>What a beautiful Daughter tho..
Dick Cheney’s Gay Daughter Pregnant
Old news, so what?
Agreed. I don’t like Romney but I sure as hell can see where Barry wants to take us. We also have to unify locally and state-wide and start getting more conservatives in place at every level.
Shes still “hot”...
Laz you got some splaining to do
>> so what?
So fiscal “Conservatism”, ISN’T.
Here’s an idea. Why not let the primary process play out, find out where Romney wants to take us, and let the delegates at the Convention in August decide how to get a conservative in place at the Presidential level?
We really don’t need this career federal government employee or the rest of his career government employee family telling us to short circuit the process to put in the candidate that retired private-citizen Cheney favors.

You praise him by comparing him to Obama... and maybe by focusing on his business acumen and his sterling family life.
