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.

    I saw her on FOX and she's a very smart woman. Too bad she inherited lying from her father. GOP candidates will use her though.

    Public service is a high calling, especially when large sums of cash are involved. Of course money-grubbing Dick will be involved. If you want to have good public relations and a good public image like Dick Cheney, you can hire the Cheney consulting firm. If you want to lobby Democratic committee chairs who better than the Cheney consulting firm?

    I wonder what Liz is going to do in the future? She regularly serves the liberals their own head on MSNBC and it is ever so humorous.

    She is smart and has good timing. When unemployment hits 15% and the national debt is doubled, voters in 13 months will send Democratic congressmen packing and she will have plenty of customers eager to be introduced to the Republicans again.

    Surprise Surprise !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    That was the only reason she was out there making those outrageous and very untrue statements. We could not figure out why Cheney and Liz were always in the new, Well now we see, they were setting the ground work for their new company! I will say it again
    The GOP always has a hidden agenda!

    Just think of al of the valuable advice she's already received on how to lie, how to torture, how to create an illegitimate world war, how to murder hundreds of thousands of people, etc. Forget the consulting firm baby, you're ready to be Vice President!

    How disgusting the far left can be to criticize. I guess it comes from all that transparency, honesty and ethical Government they have subjected themselves to. However, listen to them wine when you talk bad about one of theirs. Hey liberals, your ignorance is showing way too often..........

  18. Only 23% of the country approve of Republican'ts in Congress

    Do these women really not get that their father was intrumental in bringing this country to it's KNEES??? I absolutely cannot stand to see or hear Liz Cheney speak! She is one of the most divisive, arrogant, stupid women I've ever seen. I really think she may even be worse than Palin, and that's saying a lot! ALL of the Cheney's need to just go away for awhile! The country doesn't need them, their politics or their opinions ever again!

    The name Chaney is synonymous with lying, deceit, greed, and the word is a kin to hypocrisy. It's interesting to see Republican types and anti-Obama-bots coming on here in defense and praise of Mary Chaney and our former vice president. Republicans wish to be associated with lying, deceit, greed, and hypocrisy.

    Unfortunately it works for the Republican party.

    I don't really know anything about Ms Cheney, not so much. She is very spoken that's for sure and is not shy about it. She is pretty popular so she knows how to get in the game.

    So what, they ALL lie! Conservatives, Liberals and even Independents, man up!! :) Don't be "soft", this is a big boys game and politics ain't no joke cause they'll make you cry before you know it...I seen it!! LOL!!!! :)

    This must be Mary's coming out party.....I hope for her sake that she can be an anomaly in this family and not like dad or sister Liz the "B".

    Oh wait a minute... a political consulting firm, oh crap, can't we get a break. What is up with all of these people that have to walk in their parents shoes. If they don't run for office, they'll try to influence office.

    She certainly won't have to consult with this administration. They already know how to lie, cheat, cover up their corruption, and destroy this great country.
