Skip to comments.Liz Cheney Splits With Father on Palin Remarks: ‘More Qualified Than Obama and Biden Combined’
Posted on 07/29/2012 10:10:29 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Former Vice President Dick Cheney told ABCs Jonathan Karl Sunday that Senator John McCains decision to pick Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008 was a mistake, and one that Mitt Romney cant repeat.
I like Governor Palin. Ive met her. I know her. She attractive candidate. But based on her background, shed only been governor for, what, two years. I dont think she passed that test of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake, Cheney explained.
But now, Liz Cheney who many respect as a conservative mind independent of her fathers former position has amicably announced that she disagrees with her fathers position.
Rarely do I disagree with best VP ever but @SarahPalinUSA more qualified than Obama and Biden combined. Huge respect 4 all shes done 4 GOP, Liz Cheney wrote.

You can both be unqualified AND more qualified than zero and that dumb drunk combined.
I agree with Liz........just sayin.....
while she is right...
She is not saying much.
I think Palin is more than qualified. Don’t get me wrong. But even Zero and Biden together set the bar far to low.
Liz for VP! Seriously.
“shed only been governor for, what, two years”
At least she was governor unlike the foreign national Barry Soetoro.
Forgetting Palin for a moment, you really hit that one on the head didn’t you.
You could be five times better than Obama/Biden, and still be woefully inadequate to hold those positions.
“Rarely do I disagree with best VP ever but @SarahPalinUSA more qualified than Obama and Biden combined. Huge respect 4 all shes done 4 GOP, Liz Cheney wrote.”
With all due respect for former VP Cheney (not sure what the appropriate title is), I must agree with his daughter.
The one time in my life I voted Dem was for Clinton in the first election. (sorry!) Then, when he ran after Bob Dole, so incredibly unexciting, I couldn’t decide, because I couldn’t in good conscience vote for Clinton, but Dole was so uninspiring. So I focused on Colorado’s many ballot referenda, putting off the decision until later—and actually forgot to vote for the President.
Last election, I voted by absentee ballot for Sarah Palin—not John McCain. I respect and admire her, I would love to see her on the national stage, and she energizes a crowd like no one else. Whenever and wherever she runs, if I can, I will vote for her.
I do love Liz Cheney! I agree. :)
DAMAGE CONTROL alert!
Liz, if you happen to read this, pass this along. I know GOPe does not respect me when they attack Sarah. Fine, but demonstrating this to me BEFORE the election is downright insulting.
It makes me want TEA to become a real party. Please look up “coalition government” on your Google. I see nothing in the constitution about a “two party system”.
One of the reasons I can’t get too upset with Dick Cheney. He raised a smart daughter, who corrects his errors.
And, for the record - Sarah was more qualified than Juan McCain. She had all 3 of them beat.
In all of my life 32 months would be rounded up to three years if called for, or simply called 32 months, why with Palin did America suddenly decide that 32 months is to be rounded off to "2 years" ?
With all due respect to Mr. Chaney, look at all the experience he, Bush and Rove brought to the table.
Experience that will get you one of the lowest approval ratings in American History @24% as Bush left office.
And all that “experience” helped elect OBAMA.
That “experience” thing did not work out that well, did it Dick?
Well I’m glad she said it because I’ve been po’d about this all day. Never have we had a totally unqualified, mysterious, disasterous POTUS as we do in BO. As for Biden he’s about as stoopid as they come. A Palin presidency wouldn’t bother me at all.
Perhaps. But she’s way more qualified that Bush and McCain. And G.H.W. Bush. And Romney.
Obama and Biden aren’t even qualified to shine Sarah’s shoes.
Of course the earlier thread was all about throwing Cheney under the proverbial bus.
Palin wasn't ready for the rigors of the campaign and it cost her the governorship, her family's privacy and huge legal bills. Objectively, it was a mistake for McCain to offer and a mistake for Palin to accept.
Wow! You really are a cult member. Why not make her more qualified than RINO Reagan too?
