Daddy Dearest

On "This Week" on Sunday Liz Cheney added her usual insightful comments about a broad range of topics. While she offered no solutions to any problems, she did have one constant in all her answers. She consistently blamed all of the worlds problems on the current administration without admitting that her George Bush Jr. and her father's administration had anything to do with the mess that we currently find ourselves in.

After playing a commercial from the Liz Cheney led group that criticized the response time of the President to the attempted airline bombing, George Stephanopoulos asked this question:

STEPHANOPOULOS: Arguing that the responses were much better under President Bush, yet as many Democrats pointed out, President Bush waited, I think, six days before doing much about Richard Reid, the shoe bomber.

CHENEY: Well, I think that you've got to go back here and look at the way this president has dealt with terror since he's been in office. And the point of that ad was this notion that you cannot win a war if you're treating it as sort of an inconvenient sidelight.

She didn't even attempt to answer the question and Mr. Stephanopoulos, as is his style, didn't follow up to try to get her to answer the question. Why would he let her get away with this? Of course he did the same when he failed to follow after Rudy Guliani claimed that there were no terrorist attacks during the Bush administration.

This isn't about Stephanopoulos, however. The question I have to ask is why is Liz Cheney being given this outlet to spew her partisan nonsense over the airwaves? Liz Cheney has held a couple of positions in the state department during the Bush administration. Having your father as the most powerful Vice President of all time can certainly be a plus when you're trying to get a government job. Does that qualify her as some kind of expert on this administration? Or on what's best for the country? For some reason (oh, what could it be?), the networks just can't seem to get enough of her. Why on earth would the news programs seek out a low level government official from the last administration to give their opinion about anything? I just can't seem to figure that one out.

Anyway, whatever the motivation of the networks may be (wink, wink), it's time that she crawled back into the hole that her father can't seem to stay in himself these days. Her father's contribution to this country was to line his pockets and those of his friends, waste the lives of thousands of American soldiers, trample the Constitution, and help push this country toward an economic meltdown. Not exactly a stellar record of achievement. Apparently his daughter hopes to follow in his footsteps with a big hand up from the mainstream media. I can only hope for the day when we are free from the blight of this current generation of Cheney's. I'm not sure we can survive many more.

Mycue I read about this Stephanopoulos interview with the Lizard, sorry I can't remember who wrote the article but what it said was George let Lizard ramble on without interruption so the viewers could see her hypocricy and stupidity. Makes sense to me. These Cheneys need to STFU, the country gives them no credibilty whatsoever, Lizard is a sickening bitch, I get ill watching her speak!

You know Michael, it bugs the hell out of me that so many (other than cluster Fox) news sources / interviewers will allow these obvious liars and twisters get away with verbal murder. REally bugs me! Letting her ramble on allows her to be taken seriously by many people who possibly don't understand that she might / is lying. I think these interviewers and news outlets have a distinct lack of integrity in this. Liz Cheney need a 'comeupance' is what she needs... a very public one. Why doesn't she just accept Rachel Maddow invite to debate the many things she claims Maddow is lying about and says won't debate her on? HUMMMM? No we can't survive much more of the Cheney duo. :-)

The Cheney family has clearly to me come to believe they are actually royalty. From chief dick to bitchy Liz they want us to continue to blindly follow and fear on command.

With their continued public outbursts and apparent continued connections to many in high levels of the military and intelligence communities to call them a danger to the country would be an outrageous understatement.

On another note I am still waiting for someone to question where in the Hell did Liz get her national security credentials and force her to answer.

I've had my fill of that mouthy and ignorant lying little bitch. It is high time we start putting the heat on people like Stephanopolous for not pinning little liars like her and big liars like her father down. They are not doing anyone a favor by allowing a war criminal and his brainwashed lying daughter a public platform from which to disseminate their lies unchallenged. ENOUGH of this bullshit!

MadMike said...

The "Lizard." Lol. Thanks Sue!

This is a double speaking little bitch who little more than a clone of her despicable father. I have no doubt that she will one day serve on a panel with The Palin you know...over at FOx NEws.

Liz and Sarah make a perfect pair. I'm sure Liz would be able to teach her the difference between North and South Korea.

Very nice blog you have here. I like reading political blogs for some reason. Anyway, I have a site myself where people from around the world come and debate on popular issues. I feel as if this will give citizens some form of power, letting their voices be heard.

I'd like to exchange links with you to help spread some traffic around between each other. If you'd like to, please leave a comment under our "Compadres" page when you've added our link and we'll return the favor.

Until then, keep up the good work.

Mycue, it boggles me that she gets the media play she does. Her only qualification is being the progeny of a monster.

Jay said...

Going to add you right now. Take care.

The wonderful irony is that we all would support her marrying her same sex partner.

Eventually she will prove to be a detriment. It's almost a shame I changed my ways from despicable shit stirrer to kind and gentle cause I would dearly have loved to put Lizard through the hell of my vitriol. Illinois style.

SJ said...

ironic isn't it?
The people who support her right to be married, be absolutely equal under the eyes of the law and well, just be, just exist are the very people she is trying to demonize... -Unsuccessfully I should add.

SJ said...

wait a minute... Mary is the daughter who is a Lesbian, not Liz.

Forget what I just said.

Mycue23 said...

Unfortunately, Liz is the straight daughter. And there are a lot more little Cheney's at home.

TRUTH 101 said...

Damn. Well, they're both assholes so I deserve some literary leeway here.
