Cheney 2012? (run, Dick, run!)


CNN:

A new group wants former Vice President Dick Cheney back in the White House.

The organization -- "Draft Dick Cheney 2012" -- launched on Friday, and unveiled their new Web site. Their aim: To convince the former vice president to seek the Republican presidential nomination in the next race for the White House.

How good would that be? I realize he'd be a more formidable opponent than, say, Sarah Palin, but there's no way he could actually win -- not with his long record of evil, not with how bad he'd be on the stump, not with his poor health, not with all the questions he'd have to answer.

Or could he? I think Obama is pretty much a lock to win re-election (not least given how good a campaigner he is), but, were he to run (and he almost certainly won't), could Cheney scare enough people into voting for him?

Are the American people that simultaneously bloodthirsty and masochistic?

  • No one in the Bush administration (not even Bush himself) was more recklessly defamed than Cheney. Were it not for his poor health, he'd be my choice. No one is better qualified to handle the war against terrorism than the former Vice President. Could he win? Unlikely. But if ever there were a President who could force people, who have otherwise been hoodwinked into thinking Cheney is evil, into reassessing their position, it's the incompetent fool (with the apparently squandered high IQ), Barack Obama.

    Gee, if we had better health care in this country, he could get the bolts in his neck tightened for a lot less than they charge now.

  • He might not be alive without his government health care. I certainly hope he runs - 12% approval rating and all.
