Well the Moderates can say at least she isn't Trump
 
2022-08-11 10:12:31 AM  
With Adam Kinzinger as her running mate. He's got enough of a national brand built to work well in that role.

I mean, I wouldn't personally vote for that ticket if you paid me. But it would show a GOP shift to something slightly less based in insanity and hatred, it would appeal to a broader spectrum of voter than pretty much any other possible GOP slate that currently exists, and it would have the added benefitting of permanently removing some of the most vile members of the GOP tent from the equation due to the significant incidences of rage-induced embolism and heart attack that would ensue.

She is doing her job and that's what I expect her to do.  You don't get bonus points for standing up to Nat-C's.

That being said, her politics are still horrible and she would be a terrible President.
 
2022-08-11 10:24:20 AM  
Who would be her constituents? Her politics are to the right of her evil dad, but those wingnut extremists hate her because she's on the J6 committee

In this day & age in the Republican Party?

Yes, Yes she does,

Exactly.

Republican policies are still deeply damaging and exploitive. All of them. So no Republicans ever again.
 
2022-08-11 10:41:14 AM  
I can see Emperor DeSantis appointing her President. Someone has to do the day to day stuff running the country.
 
2022-08-11 10:41:22 AM  
I've said it before and I'll say yet again: After Hillary lost in 2016, I said Liz Cheney would be the first woman president.

She may be taking a detour soon, but I still don't see any women politicians who might get 'there' first. But I'd be

pretty happy if Gretchen Whitmer did.

Clinton Democrats seem to support her.

Spoiler Cheney is more accurate. And that I fully support.
 
2022-08-11 10:48:11 AM  
If she wants to waste her money and get nothing in return knock your socks off Liz.
 
2022-08-11 10:52:03 AM  
Conservative, just not a kool-aid drinker.  No thanks.  We need to move to the left to fix America's problems.
 
2022-08-11 10:52:12 AM  
It's been pretty obvious from the beginning that this is her goal.
The sad reality is we can and have done worse.

what even is this article

my god, politico.
 
2022-08-11 10:55:42 AM  
Not only no but hell no.
 
2022-08-11 10:55:45 AM  
I hope she runs because those primary debates would be epic and would help make sure that Trump's misconduct remains in the minds of republican voters
 
2022-08-11 10:55:58 AM  
Good. She'll draw votes away from the Republican nominee.
 
2022-08-11 10:56:15 AM  
Whatever it takes to destroy the GOP.

No, we got a bunch of previous posts on threads that were wanting to welcome her in with open arms solely because she did the right thing against Trump. More sane people were trying to point out her voting history, but those cries were ignored to call her to join the Democratic Party simply because she agreed with us on one issue, Trump.
 
2022-08-11 10:56:23 AM  
You'd really have to unskew the statisticals for that to happen.

You're a Republican. Shut up, stop lying every time you twaddle your keyboard, and vote for Mrs Cheney yourself.

I won't.

In the context of presidential candidates, that statement no longer has meaning.

Unless she runs on standing up to team MAGA
 
2022-08-11 10:57:19 AM  
Run as independent and split the rightwing vote, Liz. DO IT.

Help the left out.
 
2022-08-11 10:58:40 AM  
Entirely possible if a few things happen... Trump dies and DeathSentence gets killed in the General Election... At that point, I think the more business oriented members of the party reign back control from the morons and they run her. She could get the moderate vote, Republicans vote for R no matter what, so that "they won't for for her" yeah that's bullsh*t.

She'd be a very tough candidate to beat... IF all of the above happens.. If MAGA is still running things, this is obviously never going to happen.
 
2022-08-11 10:58:49 AM  
Just because she's one of the few Republicans who understands the rule of law doesn't mean that her politics aren't repugnant.

The fact that she's likely to lose her reelection isn't based upon the crazies in Wyoming disagreeing with her political stances, it's because she failed to bend genuflect before Trump.  So, they're going to vote in a person whose only platform is "It's OK if you're Republican".

Did those totally real and def not made up people who wanted her to be a Dem call you "sir" with tears in their eyes?

Fark "progressives" hate her for the exact same reason.

Is that a thing that actually happened?

Because I'm about as "Filthy Centrist" of a Democrat as they come on this site and I think Liz Cheney should go on a hunting trip with her Daddy as soon as possible.
 
2022-08-11 11:01:26 AM  
No no and no. the war machine, corporate slavers, environmental destructors, and kid-f*cking grifters can fight over money and party control in their own places on their own time.  Not on an election ticket.

/and by fight I mean to the death over an active volcano

She's in no way "moderate".

I won't.


If I could or had to vote in a Republican primary between her and Cheeto and DeSantis and a pretty long list of other Republicans, I'd vote for her and then try not to puke all over the machine.

If the choice was her or Manchin or Sinema, I'd kick the goddamn machine through the wall as my vote.

if you guys can vote for Trump, then I can vote for Cheney.  Seems reasonable.
 
2022-08-11 11:04:41 AM  
Hillary would have a meltdown if Cheney became the first female president
 
2022-08-11 11:04:54 AM  
I don't see how she can win a Republican nomination, would she run as Independent? There just are not that many anti-MAGA conservatives around, though this could change esp. if FOX changes its tune.
 
2022-08-11 11:05:21 AM  
No, but if Democrats had half a brain, they'd quietly encourage her to run as a third party candidate (probably under the Libertarian banner).

Then again, Fark believes every third party voter is some budding liberal that just needs prodding to vote for Democrats, so that might not work after all.
 
2022-08-11 11:05:21 AM  
With Emperor Dick Cheney manipulating behind the scenes...

There's always 2 Sith
A Master and an apprentice.

And we know that Sith Masters go through apprentices
And Lord Dick lost his previous one to the Light Side

She will be his new one, Darth Lazer (liz for short)
Yes, we see the POWER growing in this one...
She will be a Force to be reckoned with
With his guidance, of course

No idea how I forgot to mention the christofascists, who are currently winning that party over.

There are a number of folks missing on Monday and Tuesday airing their pro-Trump grievances today.  Total coincidence with the news on Trump's FBI search warrant, I'm sure.
 
2022-08-11 11:06:33 AM  
"Friends, today was not a loss.  Today just showed us that Republicans in the state of Wyoming hate me.  Many Republicans in the nation hate me.  But I'm aiming to run for president, securing the votes of people who don't hate me, like moderates, who will no doubt hate my policies, but hopefully not me.  So if you hate Donald Trump like me and my dad do, and you don't hate my dad, then who else are you going to support?  Sure, Democrats, but let's be clear, from a policy perspective, Democrats hate me.  Except when I'm publicly hating Donald Trump.  So if you hate Donald Trump, and if you just think of everyone else other than me as Donald Trump, then I think you'll see that I'm the clear alternative for this nation.  So remember, if you hate, vote Cheney."

Every time I hear this accusation about Admirable, I never see proof. Think you can share us a link or two from previous threads?

I think maybe she sees a 3rd party run as spoiler something she can do to cripple the GOP and force them to ostracize the crazy elements. maybe not win the first battle but sure enough position herself to be a factor in the next one.
