At a town hall meeting in Arizona this week, someone asked the Mittster if he would pick a Tea Party member as his vice presidential nominee. And, while Romney didn't directly answer the question, he did extol the virtues of one Darth Cheney [intellectual property of Joe My God] as a good choice.
Mitt: “I think it was last weekend, I was watching C-SPAN, and I saw Vice President Dick Cheney, and he was being asked questions about a whole host of issues -- following 9/11, the affairs in various countries in the world. And I listened to him speak and said whether you agree or disagree with him, this is a man of wisdom and judgment, and he could have been president of the United States. That's the kind of person I’d like to have -- a person of wisdom and judgment."
How about warmongering? How about war for oil? How about war for profit?
That's Dick Cheney, you moron.
In fact, this isn't the first time that Romney has shown his love for Darth Cheney; in 2009, he also heaped praise upon Cheney in the National Review:
"Former Vice President Cheney seeks no political future. He speaks from the vantage of one who witnessed the killing of our fellow citizens, who deliberated and defined the strategy that would successfully prevent further murders of our fellow Americans. His address today [referring to Cheney's national security speech at the America Enterprise institute] was direct, well-reasoned, and convincing."
And since Cheney made money on it, it suited him just fine.
Poor Mitt Romney.
He thinks any moderate Republican would want Cheney a heartbeat away from the presidency. he's crazy. And if he thinks any Democrat would vote to put Darth any where near the power seat of this country, he's just plain delusional.
Of course, if he holds true to form, in about an hour, he'll start changing his mind, and bad-mouthing Cheney.
