Why is it that politicians who lose elections always seem to want to run for even higher office positions later on?
You’d think they’d get the message and realize they have no chance of winning the big race if they can’t even win the smaller one.
Nonetheless, Liz Cheney, who was recently defeated in her home state, may yet run for president in 2024, but this is only speculation at this point. If she does run, she’ll get wrecked almost immediately.
According to NBC News,
Asked if she plans to run for president, she first deflected and argued that the GOP needs to be taken in a different direction. “We’ve now got one major political party, my party, which has really become a cult of personality, and we’ve got to get this party back to a place where we’re embracing the values and the principles on which it was founded,” she said.
Pressed again about whether she’s contemplating running for president, Cheney said, “That’s a decision that I’m going to make in the coming months, and I’m not going to make any announcements here this morning — but it is something that I am thinking about.”
Well, wouldn’t you know it, fellow RINO Sen. Mitt Romney had something to say about it. He flat out said that if Liz Cheney ran for president, she would not become the nominee.
“I’m not going to encourage anyone to run for president. I’ve done that myself, and that’s something I’m not doing again. I don’t know if she really wants to do that. She would not become the nominee if she were to run. I can’t imagine that would occur,” Romney said alongside Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Rep. John Curtis, UT-03, the Deseret News reported.
I fully agree with Romney. It seems pretty obvious to me that she wouldn’t become the nominee because she failed majorly in her own state of Wyoming. This is a state where according to her own words, she won with 73% of the vote when she was first elected. This last go around, she only received 30-something percent.
If Liz Cheney ran for president, it would be a huge waste of money because everyone knows that she’s not well-liked by the Republican party.
