Liz Cheney Mentions Dad Dick as 2012 Presidential Contender

November 16, 2009

(ChattahBox)— Appearing on Sunday’s Fox News program, Liz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, mentioned her controversial, universally disliked neocon dad, as a presidential candidate for 2012. If her suggestion was intended as a joke, she didn’t appear to be laughing.

Host Chris Wallace led an anti-Obama discussion on Obama’s recent ceremonial bow, while greeting Japanese Emperor Akihito. Wallace then showed footage of Dick Cheney refusing to bow when meeting the Emperor in 2007.

Liz Cheney then suggested that her dad who refused to be respectful to world leaders, should be a presidential contender in 2012:

LIZ CHENEY: You could also look at the comparison and think, Cheney 2012.

WALLACE: Really?! How far do you want to go with that?

KRISTOL: Let Liz make news. Cheney/Palin.

WALLACE: Or Palin/Cheney — don’t be sexist.

As noted by Think Progress, Bill Kristol who was also sitting on the panel attacking President Obama in concert with Cheney, has recently joined with Liz Cheney to form a neoconservative organization, called Keep America Safe.

The organization was formed to advance her father’s support of torture and other failed national security policies. This joint effort by Kristol and Cheney, was of course, not disclosed to viewers.

    In keeping with the Cheney philosophy, the next GOP Administration will be required to spit on foreign leaders if they are allies, and punch them in the throat if they are neutral. They will not, of course, be permitted to enter the US because they aren’t native-born Americans and therefor should not be allowed to contaminate the Land of the White and the Home of the Bigot.
