And Republicans wonder why they are viewed as radical?

100302_liz_cheney_ap_289

In a “cri de couer” published in the Wall Street Journal last week, Liz Cheney rallied her fellow conservatives to the true cause, warning darkly that “if we don’t defend our freedoms now against the onslaught of President Obama’s policies, we won’t have to wait until our sunset years for American freedom to be a distant memory.”

Among other things, she writes:

“President Obama is the most radical man ever to occupy the Oval Office….

The president has so effectively diminished American strength abroad that there is no longer a question of whether this was his intent. He is working to pre-emptively disarm the United States. He advocates slashing our nuclear arsenal even as the North Koreans threaten us and the Iranians close in on their own nuclear weapon. He has turned his back on America’s allies around the world and ignored growing threats.”

It’s one thing to disagree with and criticize a political opponent. However, it takes a special type of paranoia-laced arrogance to publicly claim that your opponent, the twice-elected president of the United States, has taken it as his mission to undermine and weaken the country. People who believe and say such things disqualify themselves as credible participants in government.

And if ever backed by power, that degree of self-righteousness becomes very, very dangerous.

Elizabeth Cheney Perry (born July 28, 1966),[1] commonly called Liz, is an American attorney. During the George W. Bush administration years, she held positions in the State Department of the United States. She has been politically active on behalf of the Republican Party and is a co-founder of Keep America Safe and is a political analyst for Fox News. She is reported to be considering a 2014 bid for the Senate from Wyoming

This type of right wing paranoia sure plays well with the party crazies. Michelle Bachmann was at it again last week also.

No.

It was because of the republican/conservative mantra “Obama = bad” (that included him wife and kids). Remember, Obama couldn’t even wear a pair of jeans right, Michelle, because she worked out, was an Amazon. And the girls were spoiled brats because they they attended a school that their parents selected (like ALL first children before them).

Anyhow, I’m awful glad this Liz Cheney is speaking Truth to Power. Because right now we don’t have any power. And the reason is because the American voters have been plumb hoodwinked by this dangerous man. Why, I say Impeachment is too good for him.

Liz Cheney? Obviously she did not heed Jindal’s clarion call about NOT being the stupid, insulting and backward party

My goodness, that surname alone is almost reason enough to completely ignore her marginally coherent rantings.

The miracle of the Constitution resides to a large extent in the first three words, “We the People,” placing sovereignty with us, not with our rulers.

Hello, Ms. historically vapid Dunce?

What is it with this spreading GOP cancer that compels these morons to never grasp the ninth grade obvious? i.e., what exactly is this hated government that you fascists abhor and want to drown in a bathtub? I think I remember Mr. Lincoln mentioning it once or twice – something about “…government of the people, by the people, for the people…”

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Speaking of radicals… (though this one reformed.)

(CNN) — He’d said his daddy always told him that a fool never changes his mind. And Elwin Wilson didn’t want to be a fool.

Wilson, a former Ku Klux Klan member who apologized for his racist past and specifically for beating a black man who went on to become a U.S. congressman, has died. He was 76.

Wilson came to national attention when he publicly apologized to Georgia Rep. John Lewis. He and his friends attacked Lewis at a bus station in South Carolina some 50 years ago.

I feel like I’m apologizing to the world right now.”

Lewis, who appeared on the same show, said he forgave Wilson.

“It is very much in keeping with the philosophy and the discipline of nonviolence, to have the ability, the capacity, to say I’m sorry, forgive me, and the person that received the attack will say you’re forgiven. Because hate is too heavy a burden to bear,” Lewis told Lemon.

He said that Wilson was the first and only person who had attacked him and apologized for it.

Give me a freaking BREAK. If you have some proof to offer in support of your rantings, then strap on a pair of nuts and POST it. Don’t look to others to see things your way in lieu of proving what you claim.

“See anything at all positive? Any sign that this country is coming back?”

Yes on both counts. Employment continues a slow trend up, consumer prices are relatively stable and the markets are at record highs. There’s certainly more work to be done and we’re definitely not out of the woods yet, but to suggest that there’s NOTHING positive going on in this country is some crackhead bulldada on your part, pal.

“There is fantasy, and then there is reality. Which side are you on?”

Reality. You, however, are on the side where you have to make crap up and then convince people to buy into your bullspit instead of having cold, hard EVIDENCE to back up your claims.

By the by, North Korea has ICBMs with nuke warheads aimed and ready for launch at all fifty US states.

Oh yes. Republicans are also April’s Fools.

When do the Ben Carson rants start?

In that CPAC speech he demonstrated that he is just another rambling sloganeer, who couldn’t even get that Lincoln quote correct.

He obviously needed a teleprompter…

While conservatives are trying to scare us, corporations are sitting on stockpiles of cash that we were promised would trickle down to us. We have been bamboozled. Worst April’s fools joke ever.

Congrats to the Blues Kam. Good game. Now go beat City!

And Liz Cheney’s as batstuff nuts as her warped father. Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

No surprises here.

I read Liz’s piece last week and thought it was on-the-money.

If she runs for office, she will win.

The Left here turns a blind eye to Obama. He’s the most under qualifed, deplorable background person to ever be President.

If you doubt that, then you either don’t know his history or choose to ignore it.

And no, I’m not your research assistant. Do your own research. This is an opinion blog and this is mine.

Oh what the heck, I’ll give one – how about that missle defense shield he cancelled as soon as he took office? Seems it was needed after all. Now we scramble to catch up

0311 — “1) “Americans are migrating from less-free liberal states to more-free conservative states, where they are doing better economically, according to a new study published Thursday by George Mason University’s Mercatus Center.”

Now nobody tell 0311 that they’re *diluting* conservative voting strength in the states they’re moving to. That would spoil his fantasy that they’re all doing it to hang out with other red voters. :D

Her comments went beyond foreign policy.

President Obama is the most radical man ever to occupy the Oval Office. The national debt, which he is intent on increasing, has passed $16 trillion. He believes that more government borrowing and spending are the solution to every problem. He seems unaware that the free-enterprise system has lifted more people out of poverty than any other economic system devised by man.

The president has launched a war on Americans’ Second Amendment rights. He has launched a war on religious freedom. He has launched a war on fossil fuels. He is working to nationalize one-sixth of the economy with job-killing ObamaCare. He wants to collect a greater portion of every American paycheck, not for the purpose of paying down the national debt but to expand his governing machine. He doesn’t believe in creating a bigger pie with more opportunity for all. He believes in greater redistribution of a much smaller pie. If you’re unsure of what this America would look like, Google “Cyprus” or “Greece.”

It wasn’t that long ago that candidate Obama and candidate Clinton were saying the same thing about our debt. When it’s a Republican, Bookman wants to label her radical.

So you agree with the perspectives of a loser? All the paranoid right winger bombast is a joke. Obama is truly bush lite when it comes to drones and tactics against terrorism.
This total b.s. about transforming the country is another mirage; people that truly understand gov’t and how it functions need to look no further than congress, they make the laws not this president or any president – get a grip…
