But do remember when you're out screaming primary...Darth Cheney is rooting for you!

Cheney knows it would help elect a Republican president.

and win the election in 2012. As of now I don't see anyone falling for the hope and change thingy again but a lot can change in a year..

And once under there, do the world a favor and die. I was hoping you'd be executed, but there's no justice any more. So please just fade away.

14. Cheney: US different if Hillary Clinton president
<snip>

"Hillary Rodham Clinton isn't president, but Dick Cheney says that if she were in the White House rather than Barack Obama, then things might be different today in the country.

Cheney isn't getting into specifics, but he does think that "perhaps she might have been easier for some of us who are critics of the president to work with."

39. He's not that dumb.
Why would he pay people to post embarrassingly stupid things here that are detrimental to the Dem party and will only lead to a Repub in the White House when so many are literally JUMPING at the chance to do it for free??

22. Attention echo chamber, attention echo chamber
You actually believe what Cheney says? The comments for this post read like one person keeps giving thumbs-up under different names. I would think Obama could fend off a primary challenge with both hands tied behind his back, but you must not be so sure. Maybe you could send him a copy of the list? Oh, right, it shows the Democratic side is fractured if there's a primary, yes? I'm sure the country doesn't know that already, so good catch! I await more bipartisanship.

37. You'd like to think that, wouldn't you?
You've beaten my giant, which means you're exceptionally strong. So, you could have put the poison in your own goblet, trusting on your strength to save you. So I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But, you've also bested my Spaniard which means you must have studied. And in studying, you must have learned that man is mortal so you would have put the poison as far from yourself as possible, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.

55. Yes, that's what he's doing. It's Machiavellian thinking. He is
getting the reaction he probably anticipated also.

Last thing he wants is a real Progressive President, and when you're a major war criminal you have to be worried about a primary challenge succeeding against the guy who is protecting you. As Col. Wilkerson said, he's very worried about being prosecuted some day for war crimes.

He knows how hated he is, probably takes it as a compliment from the left, and assumes that whatever advice he gives us, we will do the opposite.

Or so he thinks. But we are smarter than that Dick!

And just months ago he was praising President Obama!
