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.

    Like there father they need to keep out of politics and out of the affairs for people of the USA. We had 8 years of Bush & Cheney and all they did was put this country in the shape it's in. The only thing we need from them is to keep their mouths shut.

    I heard that they will give FREE instructions on how to waterboard for the first 500 customers and a book entitled "How to Lie to the American Public" written by Dick Cheney himself. yey.

    I think she'd be great at it. Like him or not, Cheney was one step from the top of the political world and you see what an immoral, evil toad he is. Thus, you can't question their ability to know how to get ahead in politics. But, you obviously question their politics.

    If her "strategic consulting" consists of the failed policies of her fathers' political career, she'll be on the food stamp line in no time.

    Ah, yes, the daughter of a VP so bound to special interests that he encouraged a war to benefit them, is opening a consulting firm - another name for a lobbyist. Why does this not surprise me?

    I knew this whole thing was about money. She has spoken publicly a whole lot about politics for someone who has absolutely no experience. Like father like daughter. The world would be a better place if they would just crawl back under the rock from which they emerged from.

    It would have been more suited if she Opens one of the following firms:
    1. Quail Hunting Training Firm.
    2. Counseling to Inmates Firm. (Cheney is ultimately going to Jail)
    3. Anti-Torturing and Anti-Waterboarding Firm.

    Just like daddy, start a political project and then insert your self into the political running. She wants to be on the Repub ticket in 2012. Her narrow minded arrogance and social ignorrance (both inherited) will be like candy for the mindless minions of the "BASE". But she will end up the failure just like daddy ~ the evil Dick.

    Good luck for new clients! Just don't be too conservative and rigid in your opinions and try not to be a svengali.

    Poor self-loathing Mary Cheney. Every client who walks in the door will look at her with unmitigated disgust (plus a little curiousity about girl on girl action).

    I am glad to hear someone will take over for Cheny. Haliburton and the oil companies will need help without Dick in the Whitehouse. Who else but a Cheny would be so skilled in no bid contracts and such.

    Who would want to use a consulting firm that is run by someone that didn't have the guts to stand up against the recent administration? Afterall, her father's administration believed that she and people like her (gay men and lesbians) were less than human and were an abomination with a sickness that could be cured by prayer and counseling from a minister or priest. Of course this would be risky since there is about a 50/50 chance that the priest might be gay or a child molester.

    Retail sales are up in September, the stock market is up 20% since the inauguration, housing starts are up, the stimulus is showing signs of working. It would seem that a consulting firm would be a good idea as it would help all the newly unemployed republican congressmen in 2010.

    I do not hate the Cheneys, their ideology has caused our nation great, great harm. I do not care one iota what this woman does for a living, I just want the Cheneys to go away from the American political landscape, so that we never again have a Cheney, at the helm.
