Look, I’m no Liz Cheney fan. Don’t get me started on Halliburton or her dad’s invasion of Iraq because Bush was planning his post-presidency painter career and had turned the matter over to her father and his partner in felony fuck-ups, Rumsfeld. Just don’t get me started. And her voting record? The fact that even though her sister is gay, she voted against gay marriage and didn’t attend her sister’s wedding? Seriously? Let’s not go there. On
Thanks for this lively and sincere op-ed. Hey, you should have an op-ed in a major pub. I wanted to write about the Liz Cheney situation, but instead chose to write on LinkedIn about Rochelle Walensky. Better for me to stay out of the political arena when I can hold myself back! Sooo thanks for your deep dive!
Agree completely! Sometimes important and valuable, even life saving things get done by people we otherwise despise. In other words, politics makes strange bedfellows. I too abhor most of what she believes and has voted for. AND no one else has stepped up to accomplish what she has done on the Jan 6 Committee. In fact, it is just her Bona Fides as a radical Republican that make her effective in that role. I want her to succeed in the Jan 6 Committee. And I don’t want her to be in control of anything else. That said, it appears the tide is turning against Trump. None of it is easy. We let it go far too long.
I’m right there with you. I respect her and am glad she has the fortitude to stand up to the bullies in her own party and do her constitutional duty. There was a time when the two sides could roll up their sleeves, work out their differences and get something done for the people of the United States. Liz Cheney, I applaud you. I don’t agree with your politics but I don’t have to. We once lived in a civilized country.
