Dick Cheney: Picking Sarah Palin for VP Was 'A Mistake'
Yahoo/ABC News ^ | Jonathan Karl

Posted on 07/29/2012 7:38:46 AM PDT by dirtboy

Dick Cheney has some advice for Mitt Romney on choosing a running mate: Don't pick another Sarah Palin.

In his first interview since receiving a heart transplant in March, Cheney told ABC News, that John McCain's decision to pick Palin as his running mate in 2008 was "a mistake" - one that it is important from Romney not to repeat.

It's subject on which Cheney has some unique experience. He helped Presidents Gerald Ford and George W. Bush lead their vice presidential searches and, of course, served as vice president for eight years. He's also privately offered some advice to both Romney and Beth Myers, who is leading Romney's search for a runningmate, on the process.

Cheney would not comment on what he told Romney and Myers, but he was harsh in his assessment of McCain's decision to pick Palin.

"That one," Cheney said, "I don't think was well handled."

"The test to get on that small list has to be, 'Is this person capable of being president of the United States?'"

Cheney believes Sarah Palin failed that test.

"I like Governor Palin. I've met her. I know her. She - attractive candidate. But based on her background, she'd only been governor for, what, two years. I don't think she passed that test…of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake."

I agree only to the point of maybe picking Palin was a gamble and Romney has no room for gambling. ( it was a gamble that paid off as Sarah was the only thing that made me enthuistic about voting for McCain)

LOL, I’m still seeing Palin stickers on cars with McCain removed from the top of them. Lets face it, Palin is too down to earth and “Honest” to be a D.C. politician. I don’t see her as a match up with Romney, unless she was on top of the ticket, so let him cook in his own stew.

“I like Governor Palin. I’ve met her. I know her.”

“But she is not ‘of the body’. She is not of the Illuminati, nor of The Sacred Order of the Elites. She is not an Internationalist, and has not embraced the New World Order. Thus she does not have THE SECRET KNOWLEDGE of THAT WHICH MUST BE KNOWN BY THOSE WHO ASCEND THE THRONE OF DESTINY.”

Thanks, Dick Cheney, for outing yourself. Go line up with Karl Rove and other like-minded TYRANTS, on the “Right” or “Left”.

I used to be fooled by the likes of the Dick Cheney’s of the political world. Now I realize it’s not about right or left. It’s about tyranny or liberty. Dems and Pubs are the Good Cop/Bad Cop routine, both tyrants.

Sarah Palin represents LIBERTY, the opposite of you.

God Bless Sarah Palin!!!!

Yep.

Has he ever mentioned ObaMao campaigning as a senator for Odinga in Kenya with the resultant deaths as ‘a mistake’?

Palin-hating is common to liberals and the GOP-e.

What’s your point Dick? Pick Jeb Bush?

That's my take. Or DreamAct, Muslim-loving Rubio with his many years in the Senate. Chickenhawk Cheney should be remembered only for hanging Scooter Libby out to dry.

Let’s straighten this mess up, so we can understand it. The reason Sarah was a mistake as the VP pick is because she should have been the presidential candidate, and McCain should have retired due to incompetence and excessive sanctimoniousness. ...All of McCain’s little stooges who launched the attacks on Sarah should find jobs in women’s clothing goods, or someplace where queers are comfortable.

Oh you ain't seen nothin' yet, the newly arrived Cheney-haters haven't even had the afterbirth of their arrival rinsed off of them, and they're slinging every insult known to man at our previous Vice President who was formerly held in the highest esteem until he had the temerity to utter less than the purest praise and adoration for Sarah Palin.

Ye gawds, he expressed doubt about her being selected as McStain's running mate.

CRUCIFY HIM! GIVE US BARABBAS BIDEN!!!!

Usually I would have to pay a cover charge for this kind of entertainment, lol

One things for sure—Cheney dissing Palin has already made him the darling of the MSM.

But your point about needing someone who can confront the humongous fed is on target and that is where a “businessman” is needed and I hope Mitt can be a capitalist in chief instead of a RINO retread from Taxechussets.

After winning and during his first official briefing as president, I hope Mitt Romney will jump up and holler to Holy Heaven in appalled astonishment:

“MY GOD!!! THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON HERE ALL THIS TIME!?!? FIRE TWENTY PERCENT OF THE ADMINISTRATION RIGHT NOW AND BRING ME EVERY DEPARTMENT CHIEF—OH, AND TELL THEM TO BRING A BASKET TO TAKE THEIR HEADS BACK HOME WITH!!!”

If he means that picking McCain to be the nominee was the cataclysmic mistake who happened to pick Palin, I can buy that mistake. I believe the Republican nomination was stolen in Virginia (or was it W. Virginia) when the Huckster and the madman McCain pulled a fast one with the delegates. There was no honest way he could have won the nomination otherwise. Some also say Romney got there the same way.

I know that I had to hold my nose to vote for McPain and it would have been even more distasteful if not for Sarah Palin as his running mate. McCain is just one more reason for my becoming a TEA party independent. RINO’s are just a degree worse than democRAT politicians. Where are our statesmen????

The GOP-e doesn't want any true conservative voice in their little party. And they know that statements like this only add to the liberal machine which has been out to marginalize Palin since day one.

"based on her background, she'd only been governor for, what, two years. I don't think she passed that test…of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake."

And yet Dick just endorsed for President someone who had been the governor of a liberal state for only four years?! The choice of Dick Cheney has been the biggest vice-presidential picking error in recent decades. Just imagine a one-war Bush presidency without Cheney's neo-con interventionism and his socially liberal, homosexual marriage endorsing influence. I once greatly respected the man, but without him there likely never would have been a President Obama.

You can bet your bottom dollar that the gop/e ordered cheney to stick another dagger in the ONLY true FOUNDATIONAL conservative in politics today. Sarah is a threat to the bush dynasty and the gop. dick did not have to say anything about Sarah... he CHOSE to attack her and he did so in the same manner that schmucky schumer and barbara bushclinton have BOTH used.

I have been prepared to vote for all republicans down ballot this year... mitt will never see my vote. I may just vote against ALL incumbents. I cannot take any more of these unsolicited and unnecessary attacks on the right by the gop elite.

cheney has FINALLY shown his true inner thoughts... and they resemble all that I despise in progressive thought. The gop/e just keep pushing and pushing and pushing and pushing... and denigrating Conservatives and Conservatism and alienating us from any party involvement... and since I am a Christian and an honorable man... my only avenue of response at this time is my vote.

Why support these people any longer??? All they say and do is as opposed to the founding intent of this Republic as anything pelosi, reid or obama have said. roberts legislating from the bench... boehner pledging to NOT defund obamacare and to FULLY FUND the 1.28 TRILLION DOLLAR IN DEFICIT SPENDING budget this year... scalia going wobbly on guns and now dick trashes Palin for NO GOOD REASON. He could have made his point more clearly without attacking Palin... unless the "announcement" that Palin talked about is her being chosen to run with mitt... and then this attack becomes a clear case of destroying Sarah to protect jeb bush and bill clinton IV.

**** all of the gop... down to the friggin' janitor that cleans their urinals.

“It was worse than a crime, it was a blunder”

I think that DC’s stupid remark perfectly illustrates one of the greatest problems with the stupid party - these guys can’t understand that the left is engaging in a monolithic, 24/7 struggle. Whether or not you agree with him regarding Gov. Palin (I certainly don’t), it is a fact that this comment will harm the conservative cause. DC has been around long enough that he should know this. Time and time again, these assclowns demonstrate their obliviousness to long-term strategy. Copts massacred in Egypt? People out of work in Ohio? Religious freedom trampled in Massachusetts? No problem - dinner at the Club was excellent!

Picking Palin was about the only smart and inspired thing McCain did if he actually was trying to win.

Failing to use her natural ability and talent was the real McCain coming to the surface.

Accepting his offer was likely Palin's biggest career mistake.

Had she finished her term as an immensely popular and successful Gov, then come onto the national stage, a little older, a little wiser and with a longer resume, she very likely would be the nominee rolling over obama with a sunami of growing support.

Instead, the GOPe removed her from future contention early by offering her a deal she couldn't refuse before she was ready.

Once she accepted the VP job and got things stirred up nicely, they balked at defending her during the campaign and afterward and tainted her cred by associating her with loser McShame, the mandatory endorsements for his reelection were the finishing touches for extinguishing her rising star.

And now we have Mitt. yippee

The GOPe fights hard and smart against their enemies, sometimes keeping them closer than friends.

You’ve got that right. If I’ve learned anything over the past four years, it’s that the GOP-e is totally alligned with their buddies in the whole elite liberal political-media complex to marginalize and DESTROY any budding voices for genuine conservatism, both fiscal and social. And Palin, by her sheer effectiveness in tapping into cultural/ideological conservatism of non-elite ‘flyover country’ has been targeted for obliteration like no other.

No person in this entire country has any right to expect Conservatives to “respect”... as in remain silent... about any self professed opinions on any matter. If you state it... you had better back it up and defend it... because Conservatives do not just let inflammatory attacks on our side go unanswered. cheney is one of “them”... as in NOT one of us. Others are outing themselves continually.

Yeah Dickie, the really stupid pick for VP would be someone with a bum ticker that could croak without a moment's notice in an emergency and make the Speaker of the House President.

Such a person should resign and have a strong republican conservative appointed by the Republican President, in his place, for national safety.

coincidentally, that sitting VP could run in the upcoming election for President.

It'll be a while before I have anything nice to say about you again GOP-E dick.

It is sad that you consider the topic of child abuse to be nothing more than a rhetorical device to be applied in your attempts to engage in debate and discussion.

I'm sure all the actual victims of child abuse appreciate your sensitivity.

Regardless of whether it was a mistake or not, i wish Palin hadn’t been picked by McCain. Can you imagine how strong she would have been this go around without the media hounding her and trying to sabotage her every day for the past 4 years? Plus the left wouldn’t have been able to attack her for not having enough experience and she would have had more time to prepare for the “gotcha” type questions from the conservative-hating media.

I still like Cheney, but McCain blundered during the financial crisis and the media venomously attacked Palin while desperately shielding Obama from legitimate inquires, many of which would have sunk a non-media protected candidate. In the end, McCain stumbled badly on his own and the media heavily tilted the playing field to favor Obama. That’s the story from four years ago. Picking Palin was the boldest move that McCain made and would have been universally cheered as a brilliant pick if the out-of-control power hungry leftist media hadn’t been so determined to paint an incredibly unfair and unfavorable caricature of her.

If we just cave to Mushy Middle and Compromise all our principles and become like Democrats, then they will vote for us.

Its almost like the Middle ARE democrats who don't like being labeled as such.

SCREW THEM

Sarah gave McCain a fighting chance to win the election and he squandered it. Just like a good RINO would, and just like Willard will do this time.

Wake Up People! We have had 2 Democrat Nominee for president this last 2 cycles, and judging from Dick's Comments here today it sounds like we have had Dem-lite nominees since 1988!

The GOP is dying a slow and very painful death, time will tell if a new Opposition Party can take its place in time.

More of the exclusive interview with Cheney, which was conducted in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, will air Monday on Good Morning America, World News with Diane Sawyer and Nightline.

Yep, World News with Diane Sawyer - now there's a group that wishes Republicans well...Cheney needs to pick his interviews - sometimes you're known by the company that cheers you on...

When the gop lose the presidential election... lose House and Senate seats... and if gop elites keep attacking us on the right they will... then they will have to reevaluate their little plan to kill off the TEA Party. The TEA Party is an idea... a movement... not a political party... and ideas cannot be killed. They can only be attacked as cheney has done here. Our ideas compared to their ideas... NO comparison. cheney is not who he presented to us... and his past and present prove it.
