Washington (CNN) – A new group wants former Vice President Dick Cheney back in the White House.
The organization - "Draft Dick Cheney 2012" - launched on Friday, and unveiled their . Their aim: To convince the former vice president to seek the Republican presidential nomination in the next race for the White House. But there may be a major roadblock to the group's pitch - Cheney himself.
"The 2012 race for the Republican nomination for President will be about much more then who will be the party's standard bearer against Barack Obama, the race is about the heart and soul of the GOP," said Christopher Barron, one of the organizers of the Draft Cheney movement. "There is only one person in our party with the experience, political courage and unwavering commitment to the values that made our party strong – and that person is Dick Cheney."
I would much rather see Dick Cheney (or his daughter Liz) involved in national security come 2012. They both have their heads screwed on straight regarding the threats facing America.
In 2012 America will need the mother of all fiscal conservatives to clean up after Obama and the Democrats' spending orgy. Cheney just doesn’t strike me as a strong fiscal conservative. His support of Kay Bailey Hutchinson over Rick Perry in the Texas governor's race, gives me pause about his understanding of conservatism across the board.
Plus will America be willing to revisit any aspects of the Bush administration? I am thinking not. Luckily Cheney himself is squashing the idea.
