Cheney using Petraeus’s name to raise money at GOP fundraiser

I’m just trying to understand why Dick Cheney feels that it’s appropriate to invoke General Petraeus’ name at a GOP fundraiser. Or is that what Petraeus is really about, helping the GOP raise money for elections? Also, check out this quote from Cheney at the fundraiser:

“No one in politics, regardless of party, should hesitate to object when an American soldier at war is mocked and insulted.”

Funny, since Cheney helped host the GOP convention that openly mocked Vietnam Vet John Kerry AND they mocked him for being wounded in action. Then again, you have to remember that Republicans love our troops in principle – like when giving speeches, holding photo ops, or hosting fundraisers – not in practice.
