Cheney Endorses McCain

Cheney Endorses McCain
With President Bush “intentionally lying low this week,” according to the New York Times, the Obama campaign wasted no time sending out a video of Vice President Dick Cheney’s endorsement of Sen. John McCain for president.

DICK CHENEY: And in three days we’ll choose a new steward for the presidency and begin a new chapter in our history. It’s the biggest decision that we make together as Americans. A lot turns on the outcome. I believe the right leader for this moment in history is Senator John McCain. John is a man who understands the danger facing America. He’s a man who has looked into the face of evil and not flinched. He’s a man who’s comfortable with responsibility and has been since he joined the armed forces at the age of 17. He’s earned our support and confidence, and the time is now to make him commander-in-chief. I’m delighted to support John McCain and I’m pleased that he’s chosen a running mate with executive talent, toughness and common sense, our next vice president in Sarah Palin.”

Update: Obama responded by saying, “I’d like to congratulate Senator McCain on this endorsement because he really earned it.”

Blue Dogs, Time to read and honor your oath of office. Time to reject fear itself, reject enormous MIC spending, needless war and torture. Honor our constitutionally guaranteed liberties by rejecting the surveillance state, mired in to much secrecy. And for Pete’s sake, drop the self defeating Pay Go meme.

Palin Takes Another Shot At Outlining Role Of VP: ?They?ve Got To Be Exclusively?Administrative?
In a recent interview, Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) claimed that the vice president was “in charge of the United States Senate.” She added that she was excited to “make a lot of good policy changes.” As ThinkProgress reported, her claim was contradicted by the Senate Parliamentarian’s office and the U.S. Constitution.

In a recent interview, Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) claimed that the vice president was “in charge of the United States Senate.” She added that she was excited to “make a lot of good policy changes.” As ThinkProgress reported, her claim was contradicted by the Senate Parliamentarian’s office and the U.S. Constitution.

Yesterday in an interview with Fox’s Greta Van Susteren, Palin took another shot at outlining the role of the vice president. This time, Palin completely changed her answer:

Well, they’ve to be exclusively, of course, concentrating on the administrative side of governance. And there again, that’s where my executive experience will be put to good use. But John McCain and I have spoken a lot about the missions that we’ll be on together and about where he would like to see me lead. And energy independence is first and foremost what I will be able to help, in a supportive role, be able to help him get this nation firmly on that path towards energy independence.

Watch it:

Palin still doesn’t seem to be clear on what she’ll be doing if elected to office. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews recently became frustrated with Palin’s lack of knowledge, demanding that she “read a job description.” Based on what Palin hopes to be able to do while in office — strong control over both the legislative and executive branches — it seems like it will be a third term of Vice President Cheney.
