Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Cheney of fools edition

Hi, readers!

There’s not a lot going on in the fever swamps of Freeperville lately –until today, that is,

Liz Cheney Dropping Out of Primary
CNN Email

Posted on Sunday, January 05, 2014 10:40:51 PM by BulletBobCo

First on CNN: Liz Cheney, whose bid to unseat Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi sparked a round of warfare in the Republican Party and even within her own family, is dropping out of the Senate primary, sources told CNN’s John King.

Cheney, the eldest daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, began telling associates of her decision over the weekend and could make an announcement about the race as early as Monday.

Well, for once, I get to beat Mr. TBogg “Dick Dynasty” to the punch.
How say ye, Freepers?

To: BulletBobCo

Well, that was pointless.

Come now, boys – this was supposed to be another Tea Party Triumph! Didn’t you know that this was the grassroots against the establishment candidate? Surely some Freeper had some skin in this game!

To: BulletBobCo
Quite apart from the merits of Liz Cheney vs. Mike Enzi, this is a setback for insurgent in the Republican Party trying to oust the establishment. In other words, not viewed as a conservative vs. liberal matrix but as an insurgent vs. establishment contest, it is a setback.

Liz Cheney was early in her support for gay marriage and the homosexual agenda, including at the federal level and for the military.

She wanted DADT ended and rejoiced when it was, she was against DOMA, is against a constitutional amendment to save marriage, and supports gay marriage, and supports the State department move to the gay agenda.

After 46 years of life and politics, and being a member of the Romney campaign

Well, you don’t get more anti-establishment/insurgent than that.

Wait, wut?

where she never expressed a pro-life belief, anywhere, she has also suddenly became “strongly pro-life”, just for this campaign.

I think that Liz Cheney went to Wyoming to take a Senate seat where she could promote libertarian social liberalism in the GOP, while sounding tough and right wing (as she does to the unsuspecting), to serve the GOP rinos as a counterbalance to the tea party warrior Sarah Palin, and other truly conservative tea party women.

I’d say something witty here, but my nose is bleeding from that incomprehensible run-on sentence.

Has anybody in the Cheney family served in the military? Just asking.

Mercy.
More after the jumpola.

To: nathanbedford

instead of going after a Democrat, she went after a Republican with a 90-plus conservative voting record. Total ego trip by an entitled aristocrat. Glad she was shamed out of the race before she diverted too much GOP campaign money from the effort to beat Democrat incumbents.

She’d have “raised some hell” on behalf the party establishment. The only thing “wrong” with Enzi was that he was in the little princesses precious little way to the halls of power.

Levin backed her cause he’s in bed with the neocon Cheneys and company. It’s sad so many people treat his endorsement like the mark of Christ.

Now she quits to head off an embarrassingly large defeat because the good people of Wyoming aren’t as dumb as she thought they were. I say HAHA.

I didn’t trust Liz Cheney on two big issues. My gut instinct (courtesy many clues) was that she would get into office, and be totally pro-amnesty, and totally pro-fag marriage. Two reasons I could never support her.

RE :”Really masterful job of the Cheney camp getting conservatives on the internet to believe that SHE was the “anti-establishment” choice (this is so laughable an idea that it’s akin to selling ice to eskimos) and that the guy that votes right 95% of the time “had to go”.”

It doesn’t seem to take much. Just bark ‘Tea Party’ and ‘Obama’s no good’ and you are the next conservative messiah to way too many suckers.

You can never have too many suckers.

Look at how they all jumped on the Paul Ryan scam wagon.

Would this be the same Paul Ryan that was going to be the “conservative” voice in the Romney Administration?

I see no real evidence that the Cheney’s are no different than McCain and Grahamnesty.

I really need a scorecard here.

To: nathanbedford

If “shake things up” is more important than conservatism, aren’t you on the wrong forum?

O…K…
So the Freeper who uses the name and image of the first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan isn’t “conservative” enough for Freeperville?

Moving leftward is not a “radical solution” it is capitulation and surrender

Come ye cool cool considerate set
We’ll dance together to the same minuet
To the right, ever to the right
Never to the left, forever to the right
May our creed be never to exceed
Regulated speed, no matter what the need

To: haircutter

so you’re saying it’s OK that none of the Cheneys have served? It’s OK because none of the Clintons or Obamas have served, either? When did the Clintons or Obamas become our standard for acceptable behavior in our leaders?

>> I’m glad that we did not replace a republican with a farther left republican. Your approach is wrong, moving left is not the path to victory, especially when it involves a woman who is capable of becoming a charismatic female leader for the anti-conservative forces. The anti-Palin force in politics, selling liberalism. <<

I agree. The theory that we should purge an incumbent Republican “just because” it will “send a message to the establishment” and it doesn’t matter who replaces him/her, was already proven wrong when Michael Steele was replaced with the even worse Reince Priebus. I remember freepers rejoicing when Priebus got the job (doesn’t matter who he is as long as Steele is GONE!!), and he turned to be a utter failure who drove our party down the path to defeat and showed contempt for conservatives.

Replacing Mike Enzi with Liz Cheney would have moved that senate seat to the LEFT. Totally unacceptable. I’m glad we don’t have to worry about that now.

Sadly true. Look at the number of conservatives who now worship the likes of Donald Trump and Jeanine Pirro. If Howard Dean started getting TV air time to every night to preach how much he hates Obama and will be running as a “Tea Party” candidate in 2014, a bunch of gullible fools would immediately start sending money to him.

I think that last salvo was aimed at NathanBedfordRacist, as he gave money and support to the Lizzie Boredom campaign.

Anywhoo – is the inference that Daddy Dick was less of a Patriot (tm) because he didn’t serve in the military going to pass without a fight?
You nimrods used to think he was the coolest thing since sliced bread.

It’s not service in the armed forces. Cheney had an opportunity to serve, during Vietnam. He took three deferments instead, and let other people serve instead.

Oh, he did a LOT more than “let other people serve”.

So much more.

Military-coffins

If you call it “military service,” to be Secretary of Defense, then you’d have to say Clinton logged “military service” by being Commander in Chief. Neither is true, and you know it. Stop fooling yourself.

You know, if Cheney would have just gotten a hummer, things could have worked out so much better for all of us.
More next week, hopefully.
