There is no way to overstate the damage done to the Republican Party by Rep. Liz Cheney, and particularly by the failure of party leadership to deal harshly with her for her alliance with Democrats to destroy Donald Trump.
Put simply, Cheney is a cancer in the Republican Party. Her dismal attempt to whip GOP votes in favor of impeachment is an utter betrayal of the Wyoming voters who sent her to Congress, the 74 million voters who supported Trump in 2020, and of the only GOP president since Reagan who has governed as a true conservative.
Cheney represents everything that grassroots Republicans despise about politics as usual. She is an elitist self-aggrandizing tool of the uni-party establishment. Her statement in favor of impeachment has become a club used against Trump and the Deplorables by the Democrats. It’s even quoted in the trial brief submitted by Democrats to be used in the impeachment.
But what’s even worst is the abysmal failure of her GOP colleagues in the House to remove her from power after her betrayal. It’s like doctors just surrendering to the cancer, and telling the patient he is as good as dead already.
At a Wednesday meeting of the GOP conference, Republican representatives voted 145-61 in a secret ballot to keep Cheney as conference chair even though she doesn’t represent Republican values.
Cheney is celebrating:
“We really had a terrific vote tonight, a terrific time this evening. Laying out what we’re going to do moving forward as well as making it clear that we’re not going to be divided and that we’re not going to be in a situation where people can pick off any member of leadership.”
The Democrats could not ask for a better gift from the GOP “surrender caucus.”
Hopefully though, it will backfire, and energize the Deplorables nationwide to throw the bums out. Montana’s lone representative, Matt Rosendale, reportedly led the fight to unseat Cheney. Good for him!
We need to see a huge uprising in 2022 where grassroots conservatives throw the bums out. If that doesn’t happen, then the communists have won.
