Dick Cheney: ‘Run, Hillary, Run!’

Thursday, September 8, 2011

Here’s a sobering fact: If only 79% of people who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 do so in 2012, he’ll likely lose to either Mitt Romney or Rick Perry.

Dick Cheney, the de facto president from 2001 to 2009, told ABC News’ Jonathan Karl in an interview Wednesday he wants to see Hillary Clinton run for president against Barack Obama.

“So far she hasn’t said she would, but I think it’s not a bad idea.”

Cheney added:

“Hillary Clinton is a pretty formidable individual. I think she’s probably the most competent person they’ve got in their cabinet. And, frankly, I thought she was gonna win the nomination last time around.”

Cheney ended with a truth we will never hear from DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz:

“Maybe if the Obama record is bad enough and these days it’s not very good, given the shape of the economy, maybe there will be enough ferment in the Democratic Party so that there will be a primary on their side.”

    While I agree with Cheney — Hillary should primary challenge Obama, I think this needs to be his final comment on the subject or his words could have the opposite effect. Cheney is intensely hated and people want to see him dead, not remarking on what high profile Democrats should or shouldn’t do with their future career paths. We get it, Dick, we agree, Dick, now STFU.

    Hillary has my support. I hope she does it.

    The Clintons are the smartest politicians on the scene today.

    I have to believe Hillary and Bill are quietly giving Obama all the rope he needs to hang himself and once he’s damaged beyond repair, Hillary will pounce — feet first and haul Obama off like a vulture carrying away carrion from the road.

    Peace Nick, love that image. I have been disappointed in President Obama’s constant giving in to the Republicans; and if he realizes he has no chance of winning in 2012, I wish he would urge Hillary to run and step down himself, much as Johnson did for the good of the country in 1968. Unfortunately I don’t see that happening…

    Obama is so arrogant he won’t step aside. He would rather drag the whole Democratic party down in the sewer with him. So it goes, folks.
