Being a citizen is a full-time job. If we wish to reclaim our rights, we first must begin by reclaiming our responsibilities. Rights and responsibilities are inextricably linked and cannot be separated.
Less than a month after receiving a heart transplant, former Vice President Dick Cheney minced no words in his assessment of President Barack Obama: He’s been an “unmitigated disaster.”
“I can’t think of a time when I felt it was more important for us to beat a president,” Cheney said of the November election. “[Obama] has been an unmitigated disaster to the country.”
According to the Associated Press, Cheney walked on stage without assistance at the Wyoming Republican Party’s state convention for a speech that lasted more than an hour. His first public appearance since the surgery, he didn’t appear to tire and looked markedly healthier than before the transplant, the AP reported.
Cheney said it would be a “huge disappointment” to give Obama another four years in the White House, and that the Republican Party needs to band behind Mitt Romney, whom Cheney called the “likely nominee” and said would do a “whale of a job.”
“I think it’s very important that we get together and gather together and gather behind our likely nominee,” Cheney said. “It’s Mitt Romney, I’ve known him for a long time, I’ve got a lot of confidence in him.”
Cheney is a true patriot. He gave decades of his life to the public service and to our country. The more the left disparages him, the more I know he did a great job.
Wasn’t it amazing how the “kind and compassionate” members or the progressive (communist) left were wishing he had died and said that he stole the heart from a more deserving citizen.
