Washington (CNN) – Marco Rubio's campaign asked former Vice President Dick Cheney to endorse the former Florida House Speaker as part of a concerted effort to put pressure on Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and isolate him from fellow Republicans, a Rubio campaign source tells CNN.

On Thursday, Cheney became the latest prominent Republican to line up behind Rubio's Senate campaign in Florida, following recent endorsements by House Minority Whip Eric Cantor, ex-Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney and former New York City mayor and 2008 GOP presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani. The source says more high profile endorsements are expected.
How can anyone call themselves a conservative and vote for anyone who wants Dick Cheney's endorsement? :eusa_eh:

Why don't you go back to worrying about stuff that really matters like who cut the gas line to the BBQ of the brother of the cousin of the nephew of the guy who once knew a guy who was a Democrat Congressman

Main Entry: con·ser·va·tism : a political philosophy based on tradition and social stability, stressing established institutions, and preferring gradual development to abrupt change; specifically : such a philosophy calling for lower taxes, limited government regulation of business and investing, a strong national defense, and individual financial responsibility for personal needs (as retirement income or health-care coverage)

This defines Dick Cheney to a T.....get use to it, November will be here soon and '12 is around the corner, Obama is a bad dream, America will let him know this real soon.....:lol::lol::lol:

Funny you didn't mention limited government spending or government financial responsibility. That used to be part of the definition of con·ser·va·tism . Remember, "Deficits don't matter?"

Conservatives also used to believe in staying away from foreign entanglements. Invading a country half way around the world isn't exactly conservative. Neoconservative is more like it.

Finally, I thought conservatives believe in "family values?" Yet Cheney has a gay daughter and supports gay marriage.
