Who does Cheney worship?

(CNN) - Former Vice President Dick Cheney heaped praise on House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan, the architect of the GOP Medicare plan.

"I worship the ground that Paul Ryan walks on," Cheney said, according to the Houston Chronicle.

"I hope he doesn't run for president because that would ruin a good man who has a lot of work to do."

Cheney and his wife, Lynne, spoke at the KPMG Global Energy Institute event in Houston Wednesday.

Ryan's plan, which passed in the House and failed in the Senate, has taken center stage among members of both political parties and 2012 presidential candidates as the debate over the budget crisis continues.

    Why would he worship Ryan?

    I thought he declared that deficits don't matter?

    Who cares what this corrupt, greedy old man has to say. He is not the decider any more. I don't care who he worships. He is irrelevant!

    This is not surprising. So long as they do not ruffle the feathers of the rich, the poor be damned. The Republicans and tea partiers have no shame. You see Cheney and his posse have cleaned up for the last 8 years. They have more money than anyone else has ever seen. Now they definitely do not want to pay more taxes. Ask Old Cheney boy where is all that money they found in Iraq? Give a list of the peoples names who profitted. I betcha he won't tell. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They will never make a day in jail which is tragic. They all need to pay. @Four and the door, do you have a job or are you getting paid to make a fool of yourself? You are on CNN way too much speading republican and tea party lies.

    Where have all you people been?

    Cheney has always only worshipped: Dick Cheney...

    This empty vessel with a robotic heart is only really saying that, as the only one true GOD, He is fully in support of the loin cloth wearing Paul Ryan and RyanCare... he has yet to understand that, under RyanCare, they will take away his robotic heart, because it is too expensive, according to any reasonable cost/benefit ratio analysis under RyanCare.

    And now we know the rest of the story. If Cheney backs Ryan plan so much,its not worth a dam.

    Who do vampire robots worship? That's a great question. One for the ages. It's a crying shame that he won't have access to the blood of innocent Iraqi children.

    Notice to all republicans – these people (KPMG Global Energy) are the ones that your party are interested in protecting/benefiting – NOT YOU.

    Perfect, if this criminal supports Ryan's plan, that's even more justification that it's a mess. Cheney supports war spending, not spending for health care for our own people. He's one empty human being.
