The apple didn’t fall far from the tree. The Liz Cheney edition
Lizard Cheney really is her daddy’s girl. She can spew bullshit and bravado like her daddy and then some. All with a straight face.
She has created “Keep America Safe”, a one-stop extravaganza for all things neocon. From Foreign Policy:
Neoconservative foreign-policy heavyweights Liz Cheney and William Kristol are at the heart of the new initiative, called the Keep America Safe campaign. Their first Web video attacks Obama’s decisions on altering the plan for missile-defense sites in Eastern Europe, the Justice Department’s decision to look into interrogation abuses by the CIA, and the pending decision of whether or not to escalate in Afghanistan.
No really, Liz is a heavyweight in the foreign policy area? Who knew? And Billy Kristol, who can’t find his ass with both hands, is also a co-founder? Holy fuckamoly..
Ben Smith at Politico has all the 411 on this bunch of nutters that just won’t go away:
Keep America Safe will focus on issues like troop levels, missile defense, detainees, and interrogation, according to Liz Cheney, who is heading the group along with Weekly Standard editor William Kristol and Debra Burlingame, the hawkish sister of an American Airlines pilot killed in the September 11 attacks.
The group, incorporated as a 501 (c ) 4 non-profit, launches its fundraising drive online Tuesday with a web video accusing Obama of failing to back up his “tough talk” and with a website aimed to provide an organizing tool for hawks.
The group’s mechanics are largely a product of former campaign aides to Senator John McCain: Michael Goldfarb, now a Weekly Standard blogger, is an adviser to the group; its executive director is McCain war room chief Aaron Harison, and the video was produced by Justin Germany, the McCain aide who produced a campaign video titled, “The One,” which mocked Obama as a messianic figure.
They are fund-raising..oh goodie! This means they will lie and obfuscate their collective asses off. All for the almighty dollar…well, it used to be almighty. Get ready folks, the spin machine is warming up!
Watch for Boss Limbaugh to talk this new group up..it’s a no-brainer.
