Liz Cheney Hearts Birthers

Liz Cheney gives a shout out to birthers and refuses to denounce their silly conspiracy theory.

CHENEY: No, I’m not saying that. I’m saying that people are fundamentally uncomfortable and they’re fundamentally, I think, increasingly uncomfortable with an American president who seems to be afraid to defend America. Who seems to be afraid to stand up for what we believe in.

What evidence does Cheney have that President Barack Obama is afraid to defend America? Obama ordered an increase of troops to Afghanistan. Obama ordered Navy SEAL snipers to kill Kenyan pirates. The pirates had taken a hostage and the Navy was concerned about the man's chances of survival. These facts contradict Cheney's assertion that Obama will not defend America.

James Carville summed up Cheney's support of the birthers.

CARVILLE: Let me hurl a fact around. These people….these poor, pathetic people believe stuff, just like Ms. Cheney tonight. She refuses to say it’s ludicrous because she actually wants to encourage these people who believe that. It’s just a simple thing: “This is a nutty thing. There’s nothing to this, I disagree with this president’s policy.” They can’t say that. They can’t say that because they’re scared they’ll lose the sort of nut wing of their party.

The "nut wing" is all Republicans have left.
