Cheney Campaigns for McCain

George Bush may be hidden away but Cheney has left his undisclosed location to campaign for McCain. (In case there was any doubt that McCain = more of the same.) From Time’s The Page:

While stumping for GOP candidates in Laramie, Wyoming, the vice president pushes for voters to pick McCain Tuesday.

Says McCain “understands the danger” the U.S. faces with national security and is well-prepared to lead.

“He is a man who is looked in the face of evil and not flinched…he’s earned our support and confidence and the time is now for him to be our next president.”

Also praises Palin, citing her “executive talent, toughness and common sense.”

Sarah Palin has executive talent? I wonder how many times Chaney has even talked to Palin…

Obama will be mentioning this himself in Colorado later today:

President Bush is sitting out the last few days before the election. But earlier today, Dick Cheney came out of his undisclosed location and hit the campaign trail. He said that he is, and I quote, “delighted to support John McCain.”

I’d like to congratulate Senator McCain on this endorsement because he really earned it. That endorsement didn’t come easy. Senator McCain had to vote 90 percent of the time with George Bush and Dick Cheney to get it. He served as Washington’s biggest cheerleader for going to war in Iraq, and supports economic policies that are no different from the last eight years. So Senator McCain worked hard to get Dick Cheney’s support.

But here’s my question for you, Colorado: do you think Dick Cheney is delighted to support John McCain because he thinks John McCain’s going to bring change? Do you think John McCain and Dick Cheney have been talking about how to shake things up, and get rid of the lobbyists and the old boys club in Washington?
