Liz Cheney Explains How Obama Ruined America

Monday, August 03, 2009 at 10:54 am

Liz Cheney, the most prominent Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State For Near Eastern Affairs in American history, spoke at this weekend’s RedState Gathering in Atlanta on the subject of President Obama’s failed foreign policy. The audience of conservative bloggers got serving after serving of red meat, with plenty of obsessive attacks on Obama’s statecraft, if not so many attacks on his strategy in the Afghanistan and Iraq theaters. Cheney, for example, can’t let go of Obama’s failure to haul off and punch Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega in the face after the man gave a lengthy anti-imperialist speech: “Americans expect our president to defend us against lies, not defend or ignore them.”

The big finish: “America needs a commander in chief, not a global community organizer.”

I am so torn between a Palin/Cheney or a Palin/Bachmann ticket in 2012.

And Palin/Taitz is out of the question I guess.

“Americans expect our president to defend us against lies, not defend or ignore them.”
That someone could say that with a straight face after eight years of “yellowcake,” “Atta in Prague,” “stovepiping,” and “in 125 separate appearances, they [Bush, Cheney, Powell, Rumsfeld and Rice] made … 61 misleading statements about Iraq's relationship with al-Qaeda…,” really begins to call into question their honesty and sanity.

Why does anyone listen to this woman? This country is a democracy, not a monarchy. Why, just because her father was vice president, should anyone believe that this woman has anything worth listening to? We have too many political “families” now-a-days. Kennedys, Bushes, Clintons, Cheneys.
I didn't realize that we have a ruling class in this country, but that's the way it seems. People should smarten up.

Lizzie sold her soul to defend her defenseless father about defenseless acts. She thinks if she just keeps talking, God won't hear the lies. And we won't hear her running down our duly elected government.
