Dick Cheney/Sarah Palin 2012?

Posted by Dan Savage on Mon, Nov 16, 2009 at 10:55 AM

Be afraid...

Liz Cheney says that whoever runs for the White House on the GOP ticket in 2012—and, gee, why not her father?—that person, if he or she wins, "will have to undo a lot of the damage... that this president has done to our national security, to our economy, to our health care system, to our standing around the world." She's referring to the damage done by Barack Obama in 10 months, not the damage done by George W. Bush over eight years. Says Sullivan:

We are nine months into Obama's first term. He inherited two disastrous and failed wars, a recession steeper than any since the Great Depression, countless prisoners of war imprisoned in a gulag in Cuba and largely unprosecutable because of torture illegally authorized by the former president, $5 trillion of debt accrued in eight years by Dick "deficits don't matter" Cheney, alliances frayed to near-collapse, and a total failure in eight years to do anything about climate change. And she actually says that a Republican in 2013 will have to cope with the damage Obama has done to the country! And she talks about America's "standing in the world"! Yes, this is the world she inhabits, a world of shamelessness, cynicism and contempt for this country's stability and health. She is her father's daughter.
