Former Vice President Dick Cheney said this week that the family feud between his daughters over gay marriage has been "dealt with."
You could call it the "Catfight at Cheney Corral" (but if you do, you should expect feminist outrage). When Liz Cheney moved from the suburbs of the nation's capital to Wyoming to run for the U.S. Senate, she knew she was asking for trouble. She risked being called a "carpetbagger," but that has a sharper sting in Virginia than in Wyoming. By emphasizing her conservative roots, she pulled intimate and sensitive family laundry out for a public airing.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney says he and his wife are naturally upset their two daughters are disputing over their conflicting views of gay marriage, but that what perhaps hurts more is they've taken a years-long, behind-the-scenes argument and brought it into the public arena.
The daughters of former Vice President Dick Cheney escalated a public feud about gay marriage over the weekend, after Mary Cheney and her female partner fought back on Facebook against a perceived slight issued by Liz Cheney in an television broadcast interview.
Liz Cheney, a Wyoming Republican and U.S. Senate hopeful, said Sunday there is "no question" President Obama lied to the nation when he said Americans who like their health care plans can keep them.
Once, the nation was all about "hope and change." Now, the White House simply hopes for some change upon confronting these numbers of woe: 54 percent of American voters disapprove of the job President Obama is doing, 39 percent approve.
The Obama administration is optimistic that Iran's new leadership could offer an opportunity to repair diplomatic relations with the United States and to permanently halt Iran's nuclear ambitions. But former Vice President Dick Cheney believes that, eventually, America may have to resort to military force.
As outrage in Europe grows, lawmakers are defending U.S. surveillance practices — including phone tapping — and saying other nations likely engage in similar spying, even if their leaders don't know it.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney didn't hold back Thursday when asked about the president's handling of the situation in Syria: It's a total bungle, he said.
Countering many of his Republican colleagues, former Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday the tea party is actually a positive movement for the GOP.
I watched former Vice President Dick Cheney's recent interview on NBC's "Today" show, in which Mr. Cheney talked about his new book, "Heart." It is a technological miracle that Mr. Cheney's health returned after his heart-transplant surgery at the age of 71. What the interview failed to reveal is the fact that under the rules of Obamacare, neither he nor anyone else can legally receive a heart transplant at the age of 71. Had Obamacare been in effect at the time of his surgery, Mr. Cheney would now likely be in the cemetery, not plugging his new book on television. It's just lucky that he got his transplant before Obamacare took effect.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney — who once accidentally shot a fellow hunter and campaign contributor during a 2006 quail quest in South Texas — had a new weapon-related mishap Tuesday.
The only man to hold both jobs says in a Discovery documentary that airs Wednesday that the White House chief of staff generally has more power than the vice president.
A very public feud between Dick Cheney’s daughters is only the latest example of adult siblings wrestling on a national political stage. Of course, adult-onset sibling rivalry can occur in just about any family with multiple offspring.
Mr. Cheney also mentioned the U.S. handling of Benghazi, Libya — pointing a finger in particular at Mrs. Clinton.
"I think the incompetence of this administration in the way they've handled these kinds of affairs, especially in the Middle East, is one of the worst aspects of this presidency," Mr. Cheney said, on Hugh Hewitt's radio show. "If you're a friend and ally of the United States in that part of the world tonight, you'd have to say what's this guy all about? Can we count on anything he's told us?"
