    she is trying to protect the credibility of her father as the world is now realizing what an evil person he was and both she and her father need to shut up and go away.

    Shut the hell up, and mind your own business: like getting the passports ready with the phony ID's so that your daddy can flee the country when Spain comes to get his satanic a$$, and hauls him off to THEIR version of Gitmo on the Mediterranean. Bon Voyage dickie, and try to relax your throat, when the time comes, it makes the "interrogation" less painful.

    Chenney is a miserable power hungry old man that needs to shut up and go away.He is devicive and full of hate.Maybe some of those billionares that met in Ny a few days ago could consider him and the rest of his loudmouth family and find him an island to live on.So he can stop spreding his agenda of fear and hate.I wonder if he substitutes for Rush Limbaugh on his days off.

    Why should anyone care what Liz Cheney says?

    How many times must we go over this? Liz Cheney is not a policy maker of any sort, nor is she really an expert on any matters of foreign policy. She just enjoys the sound of her own voice. And the media keeps publishing what she's saying like it matters. It doesn't. And she certainly doesn't deserve the attention. Let's please focus on the foreign policy debate going on between the current set of policy makers we have in this country and not focus on angry daughters of former (yes, former, Liz, daddy's not VP anymore) officials who have no standing anymore.

    Nepotism. She has zero credibility. Slightly less than HER FATHER.

    Sadly, Liz Cheney has decided to use the same campaign of half-truths, obfuscation, and cherry picking of facts that was used by her father in an effort to revive his ruined reputation. I'm hoping that the American public has learned their lesson not to trust what a Cheney has to say.

    Liz Cheney needs to ask her father is it okay to torture gays and lesbians, it happens a lot.

  17. Nathan,

    The Cheneys are pathetic. They know Dick's record is indefensible and they're going to make sure that they turn a few people into believeing their lies. They know that if you say the same thing enough ther are enough gullible people out there wo will begin to believe it. They're masters at that. Thats how the war got started. Just keep saying it and somebody will buy it.

    If anyone is making us less safe, it is these Cheney's. It is as if they are tempting the bad guys to come after us.

    Pretty sure that's not Liz Cheney.

    Liz Cheney, keep it up. Keep up this idiocy long enough and when the investigation begins against your father, maybe then you will shut your trap. All this posturing will eventually come back to bite you in the butt. Your faher is a criminal and so is most of the Bush adminstration with him. All of them belong in jail.

    Too bad, I can't imagine I would ever go out in public if my dad was DC.

    Ok, now that you've posted the correct video, what is she running for? Who cares about Liz Cheney?

    Why are we being subjected to Liz Cheney??? What expertise does she have? Lord knows one Cheney blowing hot air is more than enough.
