    Liz Cheney not only looks like a wrinkled Tonya Harding, she obviously inherited her father's ability to pontificate and project.

    Why is anything Liz Cheney says relevant? She and her father should just go away. In case they have forgotten, Mr. Cheney is no longer the "President". He did enough damage in the last eight years to last a lifetime. And on a completely different tack, does anyone else think he looks like Penguin from Batman?

    The scientific community has long debated whether stupidity is hereditary. Here is proof positive that it is.

    any thing liz cheney says can not be and shouldn't be used in any public speaking its her father . if he can't speak for him self then both of them can go away neither of them are in public office that would concern any government business issues.
    (dicky all mighty) needs to go away.
    you don't see any of George Bush's kids crying wolf .

    Why does the news media see fit to promote the misguided daughter of a former misguided Vice President? What does she know? Next you'll be quoting drunks on the street.

    I didn't think it was possible, but shes just as vile and un-likeable as her father. Her opinions really are moot outside the cheney echo chamber.

    The next relevant comment Liz Cheney makes will be her first.

    Thank Ypu Liz Cheney, it's nice to know that I am not the only person on the planet defending your fathers reputation.

    What a contrast between your father as vice president and the trash in office now, Biden, "the president of vice"
    What a joke.

    And just WHO really cares what Liz Cheney has to say? Why does CNN keep posting her commentary as though she somehow is a national spokesperson on national security issues? She is a big NOTHING – and her father is a fear mongering criminal.

    Why don't we just waterboard all of these defenders until they admit it is wrong?

    Anyone who supports criminal Dick Cheney should face trial for war crimes and torture in the Hague and if found guilty should be punish by the death penalty.

    Liz: Escort your father on a long hunting trip. Sounds like you were in on his secretive meetings. Too bad the country wasn't aware of all of the lies at that time. BYE BYE

    Cheney is a liar...always has been. You can tell that he is lying by looking at his mouth...if it moves, he's lying. Thankfully he is out of office...too bad he won't shut the hell up and stop trying to smear Obama.

    Take it from me lizzie, your father isn't worth defending. If you keep cheapening yourself by trying to do so, you're going to end up on the wrong side of popular opinion.

    Your father is a murderer. Your father violated the Constitution. Your father broke the rule of law. Any you're defending him? what a wimp he is.

    Go away Cheneys and let this country move on!

    Finally, somebody is asking Liz a question. The rest just let her rule the wave without challenging her and allowing her to silence their questions before they even begin. Way to do your job Anderson.

    Do repubs just send out all the pretty girls so that men fall over to listen?

    Dick is like a criminal observing the crime scene investigation and keeping close tabs on the police, cliping newspaper articles and making a scrapbook. He's trying to stay one step ahead of the investigators. But he's only making himself more obvious.

    I think I'll listen to an EXPERT like Gates over these fools.

    Trying to be the voice of the NEW GOP. Good luck. I mean it. I'm so tired of the old voices of the Republican Party, but I am hard pressed to believe that the Party of No will rally around the offspring of a man who is so clearly despised by more than half of the American population.
