Former Vice President Dick Cheney and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin

Dick Cheney said today that John McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential nominee was a “mistake.”

Dick Cheney has some advice for Mitt Romney on choosing a running mate:  Don’t pick another Sarah Palin.

In his first interview since receiving a heart transplant in March, Cheney told ABC News, that John McCain’s decision to pick Palin as his running mate in 2008 was “a mistake” —  one that it is important from Romney not to repeat.

It’s subject on which Cheney has some unique experience.  He helped Presidents Gerald Ford and George W. Bush lead their vice presidential searches and, of course, served as vice president for eight years.  He’s also privately offered some advice to both Romney and Beth Myers, who is leading Romney’s search for a runningmate, on the process.

Cheney would not comment on what he told Romney and Myers, but he was harsh in his assessment of McCain’s decision to pick Palin.

“That one,” Cheney said, “I don’t think was well handled.”

“The test to get on that small list has to be, ‘Is this person capable of being president of the United States?’”

Cheney believes Sarah Palin failed that test.

Well, Cheney never really thought Sarah Palin was qualified to be the Vice President. He just did not articulate it so bluntly earlier.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney won’t say whether he thinks Sarah Palin is qualified to be president.

Asked in an interview on NBC broadcast Tuesday morning whether he thought she was qualified, Cheney ducked and said he’s “not going to get into the business … of saying this one is, this one isn’t.”

The former vice president said he would speak out at a later time on the 2012 contest.

“I’m interested in Gov. Palin like a lot of people are,” he said in an interview on the “Today” show.

“I’ve met her,” he said. “I thought she’s got an interesting political career established.”

Cheney said he watches the former Alaska governor and former vice presidential candidate’s reality show, “Sarah Palin’s America,” and thinks it’s “very good.”

Cheney wouldn’t weigh in on her chances in 2012 or whether she’d do a good job in the White House. “She’s clearly a factor in the Republican Party, has a strong following. She also has a lot of critics.”

It’s not the first time Cheney has avoided weighing in on whether he thinks Palin could be president.

The problem with the GOP in 2008 was not Sarah Palin, despite her shortcomings and lack of experience. It was not her blow-up with Katie Couric.

The problem and the mistake in 2008 was the Presidential nominee, John McCain. He simply was too old, too liberal and not aggressive enough in order to make the GOP case to the American people. The campaign he ran was abysmal.

Even though New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani was more moderate on social issues than the GOP platform, he would have been the better nominee.

Rudy would not have needed and would not have selected a novice, inexperienced Governor from a small state to be his Vice President. I would have bet he would have chosen Mike Huckabee to balance the ticket and would have beaten Obama.

Comments Comments Off on Cheney: Choosing Sarah Palin as Vice President Nominee Was a Mistake

In a blow to incumbent Senator Richard Lugar, former Alaska Governor and GOP Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin has endorsed Indiana Treasuer Richard Mourdock

I join commonsense conservatives in endorsing Richard Mourdock to be the next Senator from Indiana. Conservatives of all stripes are uniting behind Richard Mourdock. It’s not just Indiana that benefits from sending the right Senator to serve for the right reasons; the nation as a whole benefits, and that is one reason why the eyes of so many around the nation are focused on the Indiana race.

Indiana deserves a conservative in the Senate who will fight for the Hoosier State, uphold our Constitution, and not just go along to get along with the vested interests of the permanent political class in D.C.

Richard Mourdock is the conservative choice for Indiana. Senator Lugar’s 36 years of service as a Senator are appreciated, but it’s time for the torch to pass to conservative leadership in Washington that promises to rein in government spending now.

Get the facts here. Learn more about Richard Mourdock at www.richardmourdock.com and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

– Sarah Palin

The election is coming up on May the 8th and the latest polls have Mourdock in the lead.

Senator Lugar might be able to pull out a victory, but it increasingly is looking like Lugar should have retired.

Day By Day by Chris Muir

Chris, Sarah Palin has been quiet lately.

One has to wonder whether she will fade away from the political scene and proceed on a media career. Rush Limbaugh will retire one of these days and I can see Palin taking up that mantle.

My guess is that a television media career awaits the very charismatic Sarah.

The hypocritical LEFT will regret going after Rush Limbaugh with their secondary, targeted boycott.

For one, the LEFT uses name calling and Alinsky demeaning tactics far more than the RIGHT.

And, the RIGHT will now be empowered to show the hypocrisy over and over again. A little daylight works wonders. Right, Bill Maher and Ed Shultz?

The Rush Limbaugh take down will fail as well.

The LEFT media always has the Sarah Palin bashing Game Change premiering on HBO this weekend. Talk about misogyny.
