Liz Cheney is Ready to Lose but Vows to Take Revenge

Despite the party and its voters turning against her, Cheney vowed to continue her efforts to stop former President Donald Trump from being reelected even if she loses her primary, which is looking inevitable at this point.

According to the New York Times:

The most closely watched primary of 2022 has not become much of a race at all. Polls show Ms. Cheney losing badly to her rival, Harriet Hageman, Mr. Trump’s vehicle for revenge, and the congresswoman has been all but driven out of her Trump-loving state, in part because of death threats, her office says.

Yet for Ms. Cheney, the race stopped being about political survival months ago. Instead, she has used the Aug. 16 contest as a sort of high-profile stage for her martyrdom — and a proving ground for her new crusade.

She used the only debate to tell voters to “vote for somebody else” if they wanted a politician who would violate their oath of office. Last week, she enlisted her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, to cut an ad calling Mr. Trump a “coward” who represents the greatest threat to America in the history of the republic.

Ms. Cheney’s relentless focus on Mr. Trump has driven speculation — even among longtime family friends — that she is preparing to run for president. She has done little to dissuade such talk.

In the interview, she said she was focused on her primary — and her work on the committee. But it’s far from clear that she could be a viable candidate in the current Republican Party, or whether she has interest in the donor-class schemes about a third-party bid, in part because she knows it may just siphon votes from a Democrat opposing Mr. Trump.

Hey Liz, how many military personnel have been killed or wounded because of your father’s lies and personal gains? How many did Trump lose following him? Wyoming was asleep when they voted you in! Well, not so this time around!

It’s time for the Republican party to get rid of the RINOS . They are embarrassing and a drag on a party that needs to move forward. Why so much unity in the Democrat Party? They don’t stand for any disagreement in the ranks and will immediately primary a dissenter out of office. It’s understandably there can be some problems but public whiners like Romney seem to like the attention they get from the Democrats while they are using him. Same goes for Sass,, Kinzinger and Chaney. Too bad so much damage has been done tryiing to placate these grandstanders.

Liz, my darling, you had better remember 2 things: 1) what goes round comes round 2) you will soon be out of office and the Dems will drop you like a hot potato and you can be charged for crimes you took part in with the Jan 6 witch hunt..

The dems loved having her in their back pocket. But they will never back her financially to run for President. She is too white. She is toxic to the Republican Party, and they want nothing to do with her. So if she wants to run for president, that pretty much leaves independents. Good luck with that.
