Congresswoman Liz Cheney, descended from RINO’s, continues to work the Left’s narrative on many things, including President Trump. Her vote to impeach was not the end of her opposition, a path that leads to her ouster from House GOP Leadership today.
Listening to her bluster reminds me of Jennifer Horn, the former NHGOP chair who embraced Trump Derangement Syndrome to its natural conclusion. She is now a registered Democrat.
Cheney, who says she “..will not sit back and watch in silence while others lead our party down a path that abandons the rule of law and joins the former president’s crusade to undermine our democracy” is probably the new John McCain. A Maverick.
But seriously, undermine?
Secure borders, defending allies, low taxes, strong international posture, a more pro-liberty, and natural rights government, fewer regulations, and a job-creating economic machine that frees more people and resources to make decisions for themselves will undermine “our democracy”?
This is where I say (it’s required) we don’t live in a Democracy. We live in a Republic. Liz has already doled out enough rhetorical rope to hang herself politically. But CNN and MSNBC can always use a reliable “GOP” stooge to sell their message.
Two final points.
First, Cheney is clearly lining herself up to be the next John McCain, though I doubt she’ll be running for the Senate in Wyoming. They are not that fond of her these days.
Second, her favored replacement is NY Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, a new GOP darling ideologically to Cheney’s left. Stefanic opposed the Trump tax cuts, and she’s inherently liberal.
Ms. Stefanik put on a great show during impeachment 1.0 and tore the Left’s arguments to pieces. That does not make her an improvement on Cheney.
While pushing Liz out of leadership is a good idea replacing her with Stefanik is not.
