I don't have a problem with the carpet-bagging issue as much as I do with the whole "has no experience or professional or intellectual qualifications at all for this job" issue.

I'd care if I lived in Wyoming but they'll get the politicians they deserve. And they DESERVE some shiatty ones given their history.

...wait, isn't Wyoming where her parents gained prominence?  Then saying she's a carpetbagger would be like saying Chelsea Clinton is a carpetbagger if she ran for office in Arkansas. No, she's not.
 
2013-07-17 08:50:15 PM  
She sounds like a manipulative piece of shiat... and people say fathers don't spend enough time with their daughters.
 
2013-07-17 08:50:59 PM  
Ugh.  I really, really hope she loses this race hard.

If I'm not mistaken, the Cheney girls were raised and schooled in one of the richest counties in the U.S., Fairfax, and attended McLean H.S. (a hop, skip and a jump from CIA hq in Langley). I don't know how or why Cheney feels that she can effectively represent the people of Wyoming. But, something similar can most likely be said for CC.

She spent her entire life in the DC suburbs.

Also when her father ran for that seat, his residency was also challenged.

Hi I'm from NY and I'd like to remind you about Hilliary Clinton.

Think very carefully about this.

That is for the people of Wyoming to decide. Outside Wyoming, it's not really up to us, like when Hilary ran in NY.

However, it's a perfectly legitimate question for the people of Wyoming to ask when deciding who to vote for.

Wikipedia says she was born in Madison Wisconsin and graduated high school in NOVA and did her higher education in the Colorado and Illinois.

And here's what Rand Paul.  Surely a person like you wouldn't disagree with the almighty RAND PAUL, would you?

"When I heard Liz Cheney was running for Senate I wondered if she was running in her home state of Virginia," Paul said.

Worked for Hillary. And she turned out OK, really. But yeah, her total work experience amounts to a patronage job at the State Department.
 
2013-07-17 09:14:11 PM  
Let's see, a half-mil people in the state. Subtract out kids, democrats (both of them) and people who don't vote in primaries...she'll need less than 100,000 votes.

Tried to figure the how and the why

Up on the hill theres a coyote singin

When her father ran for VP in 2000, he claimed Wyoming residency because it's illegal for the President and VP to be residents of the same state and Bush was Gov. of Texas.

How Cheney ran Halliburton, in 2000 a Houston corp., from Wyoming, we can only imagine.  Halliburton didn't even have a regional office in that state.

He made it up from a misunderstanding of the twelfth amendment. Cheney did do that though, but also because they misunderstood the twelfth amendment as well.

Now that I looked into it though, it does present an interesting issue, especially in close races.

Take 2000....

So Bush got 271 electoral votes. But Cheney would have only been able to receive 239 electoral votes for vice pres. The dems would've had 266 votes for their vp. So, you could've had a Bush/Lieberman presidency.
