The question being raised by all the talking heads on the cable news soap programs, and even by legitimate major TV news organizations, by newspapers and blogs left and right, during this month has been who is the face of the Republican party?
In spite of how apparent the answer is, the question is usually responded to with stock answers, like Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh or Steele the Republican party chairman, or by some other meaningless blather.
All the while the real face of the Republican party Dick Cheney can be seen crusading on radio and television talk shows from the Dakota's to the west coast at least once or twice a week if not more. His need to come out of the closet after eight years of law breaking and shredding the constitution, in the name of the constitution is most remarkable.
While avoiding interviews that may pose a threat to his far right talking points. He manages to defend his past illicit tactics and has no problem breaking precedent to denigrate Obama any chance he gets during his propaganda puppet shows. Appearing with soft ballers and mostly right wing hosts and on fox he avoids any rebuttals or follow ups, and gets away with saying whatever he wants, doesn't matter if its true or false, he speaks with total impunity.
It is my opinion that the true hardcore right wing kneels before Cheney. I say this with confidence because the numbers back me up.
When asked in a recent poll of Americans only 23% would identify themselves as Republicans. More than 23% of Americans believe in ghosts. This is about the same percent of the Republican party that is loyal to only the far right, and Cheney is a neo cons dream. The Life and Career of Dick Cheney
It is also my opinion right now, Cheney an American politician who was sworn into office to uphold the constitution and help his fellow man, allegedly he has easily surpassed even the treachery of Nixon. In time history will change this from merely my opinion to a fact. Cheney the Vice Precedency
