Famed Gay Marriage Supporter Hosting Romney Fundraiser

Posted by on May 21, 2012 at 1:34 pm

Dick Cheney didn’t just “evolve” into his support for gay marriage. He came out for it long ago. Funny how the media didn’t slobber all over him for that. Anyway, don’t expect to see any tongue-in-cheek headlines like we enjoy when this story  is reported.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne, will host a July fund-raiser for Mitt Romney at their home in Jackson Hole, Wyo., according to a save-the-date e-mail from the Romney campaign.

The event will help the likely Republican nominee tap any donors to former President George W. Bush who remain on the sidelines, while fueling Democratic efforts to tie Mr. Romney to President Barack Obama‘s predecessor.

Mr. Cheney remains a polarizing figure for his outspoken belief in a robust American military presence abroad, his support for sweeping executive powers and his unapologetic advocacy of harsh interrogation methods, such as simulated drowning.

Oh yes, a polarizing figure. And who made it that way? Why the same media that demonized him for years, yet now fails to note how he stands on the most important issue of our time.
