Posted on 07/01/2020 7:51:31 AM PDT by rintintin
Rep. Liz Cheney has suddenly become one of the most outspoken GOP critics of Donald Trump.
Even more surprising: The Wyoming Republican hasnt faced any serious blowback from the president.
Criticizing Trump is not new for Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican. But she has increasingly called out Trump over his foreign policy decisions and leadership during the coronavirus crisis a risky move in todays GOP, where any break with Trump can fuel a primary challenge or nasty Twitter tirade from the president.
But Cheneys found a balancing act that few Republicans have been able to achieve. And as the prospect of a post-Trump GOP begins to come into view, her relative independence from the president could position her for another rapid rise in party leadership.
Shes got values, shes got guts, and she says whats on her mind. That resonates with a lot of people, said Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.).
In her latest rebuke of Trump, Cheney openly questioned whether the president was aware of reports that the Russians offered Afghan militants bounties to kill U.S. troops and demanded the administration take a more aggressive posture toward the Kremlin.
And a few days before, Cheney took a veiled shot at Trump by tweeting out a photo of her dad wearing a mask with the caption: Dick Cheney says WEAR A MASK. #realmenwearmasks the same phrase that Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been using to take digs at Trump ...

Trump has really flushed out the Swamp-dwellers.
RINOs gotta RINO.
Maybe because she is a Bush/Cheney b!tch!!
Liz Cheney couldn’t take on a wet dream. Trump is 5 times the patriot that she or any of her relatives are. Does anyone with a brain think that these Neo-Con pieces of !@#$ care more about our troops than Trump does?
Which is nothing but the pre-Trump GOP. The GOP that lost to the Kenyan....TWICE!
Nobody wants them.
Probably because she’s sad that there have been no wars like there were under even Obama’s watch.
Russia, if you’re listening, please stop putting bounties on our troops.
I used to think the Bush/Cheney ticket was far preferable to the Gore/Lieberman ticket. I now think I was probably wrong. Six of one, half a dozen of the other.
Okay. What other views does she hold that you feel led to extol, MSN?
...But Cheneys found a balancing act that few Republicans have been able to achieve. And as the prospect of a post-Trump GOP begins to come into view, her relative independence from the president could position her for another rapid rise in party leadership....
Nope. Liz Cheney has made herself into yesterdays stale news. Kristi Noem, by her words AND ACTIONS, has positioned herself for a future rise in the Republican Party.
Bush League Republicans hate President Trump because he is trying to help us keep our country.
They have spent their careers trying to turn it into North Mexico.
I think she has her eyes on a Wyoming Senate seat as soon as one opens up.
If the bounty story is true(which i seriously doubt) it is a total failure. US deaths have dropped to almost zero in Afcrapistan.
Exactly but to what end?
The GOP that lost to the Kenyan....TWICE!
Media Whore Cheney Gets Attention
Disappointed with Liz.
One things can be said about Kristi Noem and that is she is the best looking Governor this country has ever seen.
And with the Bushes, they may as well have lost.
