Cheney daughter to open political consulting firm

(CNN) - Mary Cheney, the younger daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney, is starting her own political consulting firm, a Cheney spokesperson confirms to CNN

The new firm will focus on "strategic consulting," said Lucy Tutwiler, a spokeswoman for the former vice president.

No word on whether Cheney's famous father, or her increasingly vocal older sister, Liz, will play a role in the firm.

    Maybe she can advise her father to keep his mouth shut.

    In Cheney's defense:

    "There is no reason to believe that in the face of statutory ambiguity, the meaning of federal law should be settled by the inclinations and predispositions of federal judges. The outcome should instead depend on the commitments and beliefs of the President and those who operate under him," – Cass Sunstein, 2006

    I like how all these people are judging someone entirely based on their family name.

    If her "health" is in the same condition as her fathers, she will never be at her new consulting firm but at the cardiologists office.
    Cheney did absolutely nothing for the American people, He was nothing but a big waste. I can better describe him as the sewage flowing through our countrys sewer system.

    It wont work because the USA is changing. The uneducated hillbilly mentality shoen in the movie 'Deliverance' will not last long. That is why anybody with the name of Chaney will not make one scrap of difference. The Republicans are not welcome in Canada and this includes Chaney as well

    perhaps she can use her firm and position to push gay rights and help try to end "don't ask don't tell". How anyone can be gay and also a conservative is beyond me seeing how the far right views gay people. Do something worthwhile Ms. Cheney moreso than spout off noise like your father and big sister.

    This is no more than an attempt to help cleanup her father's legacy and that's not going to happen. Cheney didn't care about the sons and daughters he sent to war based on his lies, and for Mary Cheney to have the audacity to standup and support his lies proves one thing only, her father is guilty. Only the guilty defend themselves.

    With the name "Cheney", you'd think they'd want to go into an undisclosed location permanently. In politics, isn't the name "Cheney" the equivalent of Al Qaeda ?

    Let's hope Liz's new political consulting firm specializes in advising lesbian women interested in political careers. That'll send Daddy Cheney right up the wall.
