‘Then Cowgirl Change Your Ways Today…’

 

It might be too late for Liz Cheney to change her ways. She is trailing her Republican opponent, Harriet Hagerman, by 22 points in the Wyoming Republican primary.

Liz is encouraging Democrats in Wyoming to vote for her in the primary. That may not be enough to help her hold onto her seat in the House. Registered Republicans make up 71% of registered voters in Wyoming compared to 15% registered as Democrats.

From Fox News:

The Wyoming poll found that the majority of voters disagreed with Cheney’s decision to serve on the Jan. 6 Committee (63%), and thought her opposition to Trump hurt her ability to represent Wyoming (61%). And 54% said Cheney’s service on the select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attacks made them less likely to vote for her.

You might want to ride the range in DC with Nancy Pelosi, but at some point, you must come back home to the voters in Wyoming.

    In a decade, maybe less, Republicans will see Liz Cheney as the hero she is.

    No, Republicans will not see her as a hero.  They’ll see her as a dupe to Pelosi.  Pelosi had a chance to make this a fair investigation actually seeking the truth about the riots of 2020 and rejected that idea from the outset.  Cheney joined the committee to give cover for Pelosi’s show trial.  Shameful.

    I won’t say I’m saddened that you feel this way, but it has to be concerning to anyone who values good judgement.  The “case” against Cheney may be the strongest among the many issues surrounding Trump.  Soliciting Democrats is reprehensible but it’s just the latest chapter in a depressing book.

    Liz Cheney has decided that telling the truth about Trump is more important than winning an election.  Good for her.

    Think of this as yet another service to the country as Cheney term-limits herself.

    I used to admire Liz Cheney.  Good mother.  Lots of kids.  Stood by her sister who’s a bit out of round.  Survived attacks on her dad to make a political career of note in her own right.

    And yet.

    As with most OCD matters, I’m getting a bit tired of the “same old, same old.” Perhaps, Liz Cheney, it is time to shut up.  Or to try a new direction which is oriented to persuasion rather than just didactic nagging. (Trust me, those of you who might not be all that familiar with me: I have a PhD in didactic nagging and its pluses and minuses.  LOL.)

    I don’t find Liz Cheney worthy of any particular status.  She’s just a woman (as am I–on both our parts, I hope, identifiable ones).  Regardless (or irregardless at the case may be) of how she chooses to identify herself, she’s otherwise a nitwit and a tool, but that’s just how I view her.  YMMV.

    Well, there are investigations and then there are investigations. I’m waiting for the investigation on the Hunter and Joe Biden joint bank account. The bank account that was used to pay prostitutes that crossed state lines to service Hunter. That is sex-trafficking. Crossing state lines makes that a federal crime. Needless to say, I’m not holding my breath and all I hear from the House are the Sounds of Silence.

    Liz Cheney knew exactly what she was doing. She gave her constituents the middle finger and chose to be the darling of the Left and the toast of the media and D.C. parties. She was all about Liz and she knew full well what the repercussions of that choice would be back home.

    I am surprised that she chose to run for re-election after her grandstanding and virtue signaling performances. She didn’t care about the citizens of Wyoming then, why should she pretend that she does now? Her cheerleaders acknowledge that her choice involved not winning re-election, but here we are again with hypocritical Lizzy still trying to have her constiuent’s cake and eat it too. Good riddance to Lizzy the attention whore. She would not have been in the position that she is without her Dad’s name recognition and coattails.  She used her Dad’s reputation to create a platform for herself that was totally selfish and entirely opposite of what she told the Wyoming voters that she conned into electing her in the first place.

    She is a liar and a selfish con artist. Good riddance. She will try to wrap herself in the blanket of a “heroine”, cheered on by gullible idiots, but she has had her 15 minutes of fame and is done in politics, by her own doing. Good.

    I am sure that they will investigate Hunter at length.  However, Hunter’s crimes do not rival an attempted insurrection of the government and the first non-peaceful transfer of power in 230 years.

    If it was just about telling the truth, I could have some respect for her, but her participation in these hearings renders her judgment questionable. The committee’s first priority does not appear to be about truth, but rather about going after Trump. I would like the committee to be informative and balanced, but instead it’s been a partisan show.

    On the matter of history, let’s add Joseph Biden and his voters—those whose judgement we’re supposed to listen to on the other two.

    It’s the Bush political machine behaving like the Bush political machine.  Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld are part of that machine and so is Cheney’s daughter.

    The story goes, and I forget where I heard it, that Ted Cruz when he was first running for the Senate, had the opportunity to meet with G.W. Bush to pitch his case for support.  Cruz concluded something to the effect that he was going to help bring the republican party out of establishment control (long before that was a popular phrase).  Bush responded, “Ted, I’m  the establishment.”

    And it’s the truth.  The establishment doesn’t want things to change.  They like the old system where the democrats control the narrative and they get into the top dog spot occasionally, but always soak up money and power even on the down side because they play ball with the dems.

    Gary Robbins is a victim, like so many others.  He believes unbelievable lies.  He doesn’t like Trump, therefore everything said about him is true, no matter how absurd.

    Gary, in a decade or so, the only thing that we will know about Trump is what they tell us to believe.  Lots of people still believe horrendous lies about Catherine the Great being crushed by a horse while having sex with it.  If they know nothing else, that’s all they know and they think it is true.  What makes you think that history is fair or accurate?

    After more than 150 years of hagiography, people still think Lincoln is a sainted sage, when he was a brutal, corrupt politician, like all politicians are, just a bit more so.  People have a very irrational hatred of Nixon.  He made mistakes, but he isn’t the devil incarnate as he is often portrayed.  He biggest sin was being a socialist, not unlike the Bushes.

    To the Gary Robbins of the world, Trump is the Great Satan.  Better the country be impoverished and enslaved to foreign powers than Trump rule for another day.   No evil done by the democrats is comparable to Trump raping the country.

    This is his religion.

    Liz Cheney is one of his apostles.

    Wikipedia says that the House passed a bill to create a bipartisan commission — equal Democrats and Republicans — but the Senate blocked it. Pelosi never would have chosen a committee of her own if Republicans hadn’t blocked the original bill, and Liz Cheney wouldn’t be in the spotlight right now. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/January_6_commission .
