Cheney Backs Rubio: He’ll Block Obama From “Restructuring Foundation Of Our Freedoms”

Not a huge shock, but Marco Rubio is getting the ultimate in conservative endorsements today: Dick Cheney, who threw his support to Rubio this morning. From Cheney’s statement:


***** “Our country is at a crossroads facing threats from abroad and attempts from within to restructure the very foundation of our freedoms. America requires leaders to face down these challenges who are confident in who they are and what they stand for. Leaders who know that public service is about something bigger than climbing the political ladder and amassing greater political power…

***** “We can trust Marco to stand up to the Obama agenda that threatens our freedom, and promote clear conservative alternatives…Charlie Crist has shown time and again that he cannot be trusted in Washington to take on the Obama agenda because on issue after issue he actually supports that agenda. Lately it seems Charlie Crist cannot be trusted even to remain a Republican. I strongly urge him to either stay in the Republican Primary or drop out of the race.”

....................

Also of note: Cheney claims that our country is facing “attempts from within to restructure the very foundation of our freedoms.” That echoes the emerging conservative line: That Obama is radically transforming America into something that is fundamentally un-American.

1. Yeah, Cheney Wants to Keep His Fascist State
God forbid we should revert to a representative democracy with a Magna Carta, Bill of Rights, and all that pansy stuff.

2. is Cheney talking about the Obama-Romney health reform?
this idea of Obama being a radical is going to have a hard time of it, with Romney being the GOP's likely candidate in 2012.

3. Let's hope the Florida Dems use this in the campaign against Rubio
It terrifies me that Rubio is probably going to win- what a disaster for our state. This would be a great commercial and could inspire folks to get out and vote for Meek....

4. Man, That Douchebag Sure Knows How To Pull The Gobbledygook Out His Ass, Doesn't He?
“Restructuring Foundation Of Our Freedoms”
“Restructuring Foundation Of Our Freedoms”
“Restructuring Foundation Of Our Freedoms”
“Restructuring Foundation Of Our Freedoms”

It's totally and completely epistemiologically empty.

10. Much like the teabaggers, he's full of generalizations and can find no specific actions to use as
examples to support his bullsh*t.

19. He's an assclown, we're just lucky he didn't say anything about
this administration issuing a hit on an American citizen. I'm sure he's all for that, which is probably why he didn't mention it, the worthless criminal bastard.

12. I guess Rubio's criminal investigation sealed the deal for Old Dick.
Cheney endorses Rubio


April 22, 2010



.....

Cheney is one of the nation’s leading conservatives, so it’s logical he would back Rubio. But the former vice president is also firmly entrenched in the Republican establishment. That makes his endorsement especially significant.

“Charlie Crist has shown time and again that he cannot be trusted in Washington to take on the Obama agenda because on issue after issue he actually supports that agenda,” Cheney said. “Lately it seems Charlie Crist cannot be trusted even to remain a Republican. I strongly urge him to either stay in the Republican primary or drop out of the race.

“We can trust Marco to stand up to the Obama agenda that threatens our freedom, and promote clear conservative alternatives.”

.....




This is the best indication yet of the corrosive brand of extremism that Marco Rubio pushes. And now to have the most hated man on the planet endorse him must make Jeb Bush so proud of his young apprentice.


Sort of an aberrant fatherly pride.








"Who the hell is Marco Rubio?"---February 17, 2010







Now, the picture is complete.

13. I should this is the kiss of death for
Rubio, unless the fix is in with Jeb Bush pulling the levers.

16. WTF?
“We can trust Marco to stand up to the Obama agenda that threatens our freedom..."

Whenever these rightwinggers throw statements like this around they never provide an examples of this terrifying agenda that Obama is spposedly forcing upon the American people. What Cheney and his cohorts fail to remember is that Obama was elected in a Democratic process that was uncontested, unlike Dick's own election to federal office. Rightwinggers always resort to this kind of fearmongering when they lose. They can't stand that it's someone else's turn to make the laws and govern the nation.
They are not only sore losers, they are unpatriotic and unAmerican.

17. Who's responsible for seeing that Dick gets his meds?
Whoever they are, they're not doing their job. His paranoid delusions are completely out of control again.
