GOP Begs Cheney To Go Back In His Hole
Remember Dick Cheney? Well, the GOP "leadership" sort of wishes you wouldn't remember him, because, ha ha, turns out the Entire Nation (with the exception of maybe a dozen wingnut bloggers) actually hates his guts. And there he is on the teevee every day, talking about how much he hates Obama and how great things were when Dick Cheney was president. Why won't the Republicans honor his service?
The Hill reports:
Another House Republican lawmaker who requested anonymity said he wasn’t surprised that Cheney has strongly criticized Obama early in his term, but argued that it’s not helping the GOP cause.
The legislator said Cheney, whose approval ratings were lower than President Bush’s during the last Congress, didn’t think through the political implications of going after Obama.
Cheney did “House Republicans no favors,” the lawmaker said, adding, “I could never understand him anyway.”
Other GOP congressmen -- some brave enough to use their actual names -- suggested that Cheney "shouldn't be so public," go the hell away, and "follow the tradition of the Founding Fathers" -- i.e., be dead for 200 years and leave everybody alone.
