Colorado GOP “United In Orange” For Dick Cheney

cheneyorangeAs the Denver Post's Lynn Bartels reports:

Former Vice President Dick Cheney attended two fundraisers in Denver today, one for his daughter, Liz, a U.S. Senate candidate in Wyoming and one for the state GOP, where plenty of Republicans were excited about recent polling numbers for Democrats John Hickenlooper and Mark Udall.

Bartels reports that last night's event was closed to the media, so no questions about the recent blowup between former Vice President Dick Cheney's daughters over gay marriage. Last week, Cheney's daughter Liz Cheney, a GOP U.S. Senate primary candidate in Wyoming, sought advantage in her race against incumbent Sen. Mike Enzi by throwing sister Mary Cheney (and Mary's same-sex family) under the wheels. That intrafamily spat has led to more press for Cheney than her longshot bid to unseat Sen. Enzi. Yesterday's fundraiser was reportedly for both Colorado Republicans and Liz Cheney's Senate bid, which rightly invites questions as to why the Colorado Republican Party is getting involved in that primary race at all.

But most importantly, everyone made it out of a room with "Shooter" Cheney unharmed (see title).

    Liz Cheney has no chance either from what I've read. Why the hell is the Colorado GOP raising money for her against Enzi? You're right, Guvs, that's just weird.

    Easy. They wanted a big-name speaker to bring in the bucks for the state GOP, and Cheney's price was half the take for Lizzie.

    When is Liz Cheney going to thank President Obama for shielding her father from prosecution for war crimes?

    Dick Cheney should be wearing an orange jump suit – in Leavenworth.

      I never understood why it didn't happen.

      The list of places shooter can't go is extensive. Canada and France have warrants outstanding on him. His smarmy views on "Executive Powers" made us a rogue state and an embarrassment. And like most republican politicians, his choice of what wars to get into always hinged on whether or not he might have to take part in that particular conflict.

      Pure and simple , he's a complete asshole.

      Or strapped, bounded and on the next flight to Amsterdam, where he needs to be unceremoniously dumped.

        Hawk, or………….

        Baghdad, the 9th Ward, Kandahar, Montreal, Paris, or Niger.

        The possibilities are endless.

          The tragedy of Obama is that he didn't make this happen. In fact, he preserved and expanded the powers that Cheney and Bush appropriated. The tragedy for progressives and Democrats is that we couldn't force Obama to prosecute our war criminals and that we allowed the President to usurp additional powers.

          Now, if Republicans repudiated the Bush-Cheney administration, demanded that they be prosecuted and roll back Obama's war powers, I'd be right there with them.

          Instead they went all stupid and are criticizing Obama for implementing republican ideas (ACA) and for being a islamocommiefacistsocalistatheistjerimawrightchristioansecularistnazi-gasp-Kenyan-er.

          When Obama was elected we needed a Roosevelt, we got an Eisenhower.

          Instead of the Republican party, we got the John Birch Society.

    This will not go over well at all among the racists in the GOP, given that Orange is the New Black…

    I'm buying personalized t-shirts for xmas I now have three quotes:

    1) As god as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

    2) I hate perky.

    3) Welcome Dick Cheney. Don't shoot us.

    What the fuck is the Cheneys doing here? They should be placed under arrested and immediately thrown out of Colorado and to the next plane to Amsterdam, where he has to go to the Palace of Peace to face justice for his war crimes along with his buddy Smirky.

    And why the fuck are they campaigning in here? Zero Wyomites here, they're 90 minutes north of here. Cheney, take your ass-car and your no-heart and SCRAM north and fly out of Jackson Hole, where you are supposedly from, and not from Denver. And Any further flights to Colorado will require removal of your non-heart and pay the state of Colorado $1 billion before you bother to breathe oxygen here.
