Dick Cheney - The New Conservative Party Leader?

Sunday, May 24, 2009

written by Editor James

Talking about issues, for some reason former vice president Dick Cheney came out of his shell of 8 years and claims in a recent CBS interview that the current administration's reversal of Bush policies "means in the future we're not going to have the same safeguards we've had for the last eight years."  Really Mr. Cheney?????!!!!?!?!?!?
For the past eight years, he's done nothing except hide as a reclusive, running to hidden bunkers at undisclosed locations. He was there to back up the President of the United States in case President Bush could not serve his office of President. But now, the reclusive former vice president claims that President Obama put Americans in danger of a new terrorist attack, by promising to close Guantanamo Bay prison and banning torture. Yes, he openly condones torture, something that Obama claims is against the law.
The guy that should be defending his actions is former President Bush himself, but when Obama took over the office, Bush went quietly to his new house in Texas, and slipped intentionally into anonymity and honored protocol by staying silent about his successor.
But the former vice president Cheney, known for working invisible behind the scenes has come out of his shell and now tries to defend the Republican party, and at the same time, condemning President Obama for reversing so many policies of President Bush. Is he the new Republican leader? Maybe in thought, but he would never run again for office. He took shots at his Presidents first-term secretary of state, retired Army general , corner chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and lifelong Republican who endorsed Obama's candidacy, Mr. Colin Powell.
So what did the RNC chairman say this time, now about Dick Cheney? Absolutely nothing. Why? Because he is nothing short of a coward, as he will never talk against anyone in his party, and only looks to talk negative against Democrats, especially President Obama. So what may be his motives? He most likely is trying to steel the spotlight from this Democratic administration, but every time he tries, people see right through him, and less people believe him for every speech he makes. Today, there are maybe only 20% of the voting American people who now support the Republicans, but there are many more who consider themselves conservative. They themselves do not want to be associated with the Republican party, as these die-hard conservatives don't consider the present Republican party the correct party for the conservative principles. A new party may be formed some day, and maybe for the better.
