    She can save her comments for the witness stand during her fathers trial.

    found a leader–Liz Cheney--check her out--she's the real deal–sharp as a knife-–and hot as well.

    Liz Cheney should focus on issues like why her sister Mary Cheney doesn't have the same rights as she.

    Their father was the most powerful man in the world for eight years! Was he too busy bombing the rest of the world?

    We ran these people out of town because they were one of the worst administrations in American history.

    Why are you still giving them a platform to spew their non-sense?

    Liz Cheney is trying to prevent her father from going to prison. I believe if there are documents to show that torture really prevented hundreds of thousands of American lives from being destroyed, the Bush/Cheney would have released the documents before they left office. That would have been a real feather in their cap. Of course after eight years of constantly being lied to by Bush/Cheney and Republicans, I just can't bring myself to believe anything they have to say.

    Consider the source here. Why are the Cheney's clinging to public life??

    There are still a lot of questions left over from the Bush years. Where is the investigation of the the nepotism that got Ms. Cheney her well- paid job at State? Where is the investigation of why Dick Cheney was allowed to retain stock in a company that would profit from his push for war in Iraq? The Cheney family appears to carry the stench of some of the most corrupt behavior observed in Washington since Teapot Dome.

    Any Republican who supports Waterboarding or other forms of torture should lead by example. They should be water boarded on TV and then tell us if they felt tortured.
    Liz Cheney is just another dopey blonde bimbo trying to get TV exposure.
    Hey Hannity, when are you going to get water boarded for the troops as you promised?

    Liz Cheney represent her father and the old guard of the GOP> She dosent represent the GOP I belong to and dosent speak for our followers. Liz Cheney, her father and rush make me sick. The GOP will not win elections until these folks go away. Sad but true.

    defending her father, thats right! That is exactly what he is stumping for too because he doesn't want to wake up some morning in a prison. Haven't we had enough of the GOP group, look what they have done to America.

    Islamic Extermism is to Islamic as The Cheneys are to Christianity.

    Take a hike Liz...you've got about as much street cred as a 14 year old suburban white kid blabbering Tu-Pac lines in prepubescent ebonics with his hat on sideways and his boxers showing.

    Liz Cheney is just as arrogant, blind, and treacherous as her father. They are both, in my opinion, enemies of this state and do not deserve any media attention. They espouse lies and I have not seen a single journalist question them seriously yet.

    Good the more Cheney the more the GOP will suffer. He is not with the mainstream and they may never win another election.

    What do you expect her to do? -– He`s her Daddy---- besides people like Dick would withold her "inheritance" if she didnt.

    And who is this woman getting so much press. Makes one think you guys are somehow beholden to the likes of her

    So what is it? I thought Liz Cheney was not part of the last administration and that's why her father was so upset when Kerry brought her sexual orientation up in the 04 debate. I guess some people think they can have it both ways.

    Other than being Dick Cheney's daughter ... what are qualifications has she earned to give her any credibility as a political commentator?

    What hard hitting and penetrating questions! You are a credit to journalism Roland.

    No doubt that this chick is her father's daughter. She's as negative and as hateful as Dick is.

    Saw Liz Cheney on Hannity last night - would take her over Meghan McCain any day. She appeared to have our country's future in mind, rather than her's or a book deal.
