Former Clinton campaign adviser and popular political prognosticator Dick Morris recently said that Congresswoman Liz Cheney will lose her re-election campaign in 2022 in the GOP primary due to her decision to impeach former President Donald Trump.
Morris also said allowing Cheney to remain in Republican leadership shows how out of touch party’s leaders are with their base.

Morris: ‘Liz Cheney Is A Gone Goose’
“She has snowball’s chance in hell of getting reelected,” Morris recently told Newsmax.
“Her favorability is down to 13% and she loses the projected primary by 3-1 or 4-1,” Morris said. “Wyoming went 70% for Trump.”
“And Liz Cheney is a gone goose,” he added.
Morris explained how Republicans leaders don’t understand where the rank and file base is right now.

Morris said, “And it’s ridiculous, and shows how out of touch Kevin McCarthy and the Republican leadership is with the voters of the Republican Party, that he and Scalise worked overtime to round up votes for this…traitor, who voted to impeach Donald Trump.”
“The voters of her state, Wyoming, her state,” Morris insisted “will not be so forgiving.”
Cheney was censured last week by the Wyoming Republican Party for being among the ten Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump.
Previous to that state-wide Party vote, many of Wyoming’s County Republican parties also voted to censure her.

Morris: ‘She’s Part Of Republican Royalty Because Of Her Father’
“While she did win the vote in the House because it was basically set up by the leadership and she’s kind of inherited royalty among Republicans,” Morris noted.
Morris did stated a glaring fact about Cheney’s current popularity back home.
“But, in fact, there’s some polling in Wyoming [that suggests that] she has a 13% job approval among Republicans,” Morris said.
Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, is currently the third highest-ranking position in the House GOP.
“She shouldn’t be [Wyoming’s] congressman in any case,” Morris said. “But she’s part of Republican royalty because of her father and they don’t want to move against her.”
“But the voters have their own minds,” Morris reminded.

Morris then explained how Republican leaders are probably mis-analyzing their own voters.
“The word ‘base’ is something the Left likes to use to describe Trump supporters,” Morris said.
“It’s not his base, it’s 80% or 90% of the Republican Party. The word is the Republican Party. And they try to pretend it’s fragmented, but it’s not.”
“And if it [is] fragmented, it’s not the Left against the Right, it’s the top against the rest of it,” Morris explained.
“That’s what you’re seeing here” Morris finished.

Dick Morris wants us to believe that the vote is secure and truly reflects the will of the electorate. We know, or do we assume this to be true? To my eye, the vote will fall whichever way the money elites and the oligarchs want it to fall. “Change my mind!”
Yep… it's past time to drain that swamp. And it's past time for the Republicans to truly reclaim their conservative roots.
Get a REAL republican in there who is not a globalist and someone who LOVES the country. Time to drain the republican swamp as well.
I hope you're right but I don't see the rest of the Republicans following the stout conservative Republican's base lead. Those who aren't the party's base are spineless. IMHO
Liz better enjoy her popularity with her fellow RINO's because the republican base is going to sweep her out of office (She is currently down 30 points in the poles and has been censured by 89% of the prescient's in Montana
Well, Liz can always learn to code…or install solar panels, after getting booted out.
There's a heckuva lot of truth and accuracy in your comment. Thanks!
I would have more respect for her if she simply said the reason she stabbed President Trump in the back is because she does not like him. She is as big a fraud as the phony election.
Does it really matter how we vote? If something is not done over this bogus Presidential election no election will ever be fair again!
Can't post what is true on here anymore, I guess.
BaBye Lizzy Borden oops Cheney. Your turn to be axed now! Say your're Republican? Act like it!
We can get rid of partisan politics by voting conservative (or liberal) but not partisan, not any darned politico party. I've been a conservative all of my life and I'm going to die a conservative but I'm most definitely non-partisan. These dye in the wool "Republicans", "Democrats" are the bane of our government. No true conservative has a chance anymore unless they join a political party. Our POTUS Trump managed to get in via the Republican tag but only because there's more conservatives in the republican party than the democrat party. He knew how to make it happen and he made it happen. Unfortunately the "fix" was in for 2020. The global libs bought the election. "Partisan" politics ain't saying much though. Today's republicans ARE yesterday's democrats… with a few, very few exceptions.
Fantastic comment Bob! SPOT ON!
The Republican leadership allowing Street walker Liz Cheney to stay , was a JOKE !!! It's RINOS like her , Collins , Murkowski , Kinzinger , Sasse , Romney , Toomey etc ,,,, that have to GO !!! The Republican Leadership has to realize that the Conservative Republican Party is with OUR president ,,, President Trump !!! BELIEVE IT !!!
“She has snowball’s chance in hell of getting reelected,” Morris recently told Newsmax. " The resident in the White House, had the same chance, and look what happened.
The use of that "BAD" word is in a quote, I can't change that
My mindset is this: any Republican who is anti-Trump needs to go. That includes all 10 Republican congressmen whbo voted to impeach President Trump. Not to mention the five GOP senators who did not vote against the impeachment sham.
Yeah Frank, she did. But liberalism just doesn't happen overnight. I don't even have a dog in that fight but knew she tends to lean left. She has nothing to do with my state, my failed, over the top legislators so I really didn't follow her until recently. I learned she was a lib when I did some research on her awhile back, trying to figure out the "who's who" after elections. It didn't take much digging to realize she's got her dad's politico genes. If lil' ol' me who isn't one of her constituents could figure that out then her electors should have been able to figure it out as well.
But, you're right. She voted to impeach President Trump AFTER she was elected. That's the only way she could've voted to impeach Trump. And, I'd be furious with her if I didn't do my homework and voted for her because she's a Republican, which for some reason most folks assume being a Republican suggests they're conservatives. I'm an independent, conservative voter. Always have been, always will be. I do my research on my state's politicos and those I'm eligible to vote for at the federal level. If they turn on me, shame on them. So yeah, I can see their angst but some suggested that she's "like her father" and, quite frankly she is like her father was towards the end of his lonnnnggg politico career. Dad got soft over time.
But she voted to impeach President Trump after she was elected. That is why they are now furious with her.
They voted her in. Either they weren't doing their homework or she pulled a fast one on them.
Morris is entirely correct. The fact that the mainstream GOP is supporting her is very disturbing. Those Wyoming GOP voters must be fuming.
Coming soon "Democrats decry rampant sexism in challenging Cheney for the seat that is rightfully hers, demand apology and concession!"
And the people of Wyoming now see it, and she has no chance of being reelected .
With Liz Cheney it was only a matter of time for her to go "full on" liberal. She made her "splash". She got her name in the headlines. Now she can go strut around and hobnob with the left, the libs. She's officially one of them now.
Chenney has stepped over the line, she may have had her reasons for opposing Trump but to vote for impeachment when there is no obvious evidence and the left cannot make a case without bald face lying was a step to far……Should she not get reelected, then she has inflicted this on herself….
How in heck did she get elected to begin with? Rigged election? Nothing new apparently, just got sloppy and were caught this time. The daughter of a man who is, arguably, the most vile traitor in American History.
ANTIFA IS the militant arm of the liberals. The DNC IS the keeper of the liberal swamp. At least, that's my take on things.
Is it true they have a Trump supporter in jail without bail? The charges are he trespassed on the Hill , I assume they collected the evidence off his web site without a need for a warrant, but the reason he is being held is he will not renounce his belief Biden did not win the election! If they are going to hold people and void habeas corpus for that put me in jail. I would not join a protest but it hardly reached the level of insurrection. The anti Vietnam war movement staged bigger rallies recorded and still hold the most arrests and no one ever called that insurrection and JFK and LBJ were the authors of the war. ANTIFA has done worse and the DNC has stood by them, ever since Obama told his followers to get in peoples faces and cause problems a disorderly conduct its only gotten worse. And Pelosi, Waters, and numerous other crats incited more. That's why for my money it was agents of DNC that were there for the violence. They need to stop looking for the murderers of that police officer in the light of day and start kicking over rocks in the swamp.
Cheney & the Republican Rino Leadership better take note . The cleaning out of the Swamp starts with them & a series of new Conservative based Phoenixes will be rising from the ashes left behind by Rino politicians. Also of note is the Biden brand will eventually be exposed as an easily bought, corrupt family who sold their souls to foreign interests which will be the final nail in the coffin for rino supporters. The Democrat hierarchy who put creepdom in office while seeking another impeachment of Trump face the same flames as Cheney. .
Good! vote her Ozz out! enough with these do nothing elites who only serve themselves.
We have two Senators in Washington State, Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell… both flaming liberals. We also have an abundance of liberals in the House too… Suzan DelBene (D) liberal, Rick Larsen (D) liberal, Jaime Herrera Beutler (a Republican but tends to lean liberal), Dan Newhouse (R) I haven't heard much about him, Derek Kilmer (D) liberal , Pramila Jayapal (D) (a flaming liberal), Kim Schrier (D) liberal , Adam Smith (D) (liberal), Marilyn Strickland (D) liberal, and finally Cathy Rodgers (liberal). I'm not sure of Rodgers. She's a republican but I haven't heard much from her or about her. The rest pretty much vote liberal, or so it seems. Give them a call, ask… see what their positions are on all of this stuff. We need to take back our government, IMHO.
I am not a Dick Morris supporter, BUT he is 10,000% correct. The Cheney and Greene issues last week show how out of touch Republicans are.
We have our own Liz Cheney in Illinois, and Adam Kinzinger must be removed in 2022.
Illinois 16th District needs to find a true Republican to represent them.
It is about the money. Remember Dick Cheney's, Lizzie's dad, ties to Halliburton. They make things for wars and Trump was getting us out of all of the wars in the world…not good for daddy's money interests. McCarthy has to take care of his backers that is why he arm twisted the GOP to vote in favor of keeping Lizzy on her committees. All of these politicians take care of their personal interests first and foremost.
Cheney forgot that she is supposed to be a voice for the people who voted for her. She should not run to hater Chris Wallace to snivel about President Trump!
You nailed it. There was a day when the republicans were the conservative party. Not so anymore. There isn't one… at least not one that's going to really make any difference being as the republicans and the democrats have their hooks into the whole political concept, effectively bullying over those upstart political parties trying to get some sort of momentum going. Nah, we're stuck with a two party system until we decide we're not. Though the republicans are admittedly they're the MOST conservative politico party of the two major politico parties, for now.
Which isn't saying much.
I just ask myself if she were a my TX Rep would I vote for her? HELL NO! The Republican Party likes to think of them selves as a united party , but in reality they are just a bunch of politicians looking out for their personal interest and to hell with the party label. They just use the Republican label to get elected an then it to hell with what the voters back home want done especially if it interferes with my getting re-elected to this cushy job.
Many of us have left the REP Party, because the REP Party helped China and the DEM Party to steel the Presidential / Senate Election. Only a hand full of REP tried to help President Trump. China joe biden is a fraud is NOT the legal president! BTW, this meme is NOT mine, however, I am starting to see many like this posted to gabDOTcom.
Back in the day when I was still working and the RICO statute (Washington's Criminal Profiteering Act, state law) was introduced at our state level after the federal law was initiated I read it and laughed out loud. I thought then that just about any political organization at that time would fit the elements of the statute, rendering them a racketeering influenced and corrupt organization. Especially the respective politico parties at the time, especially the respective politico parties. Even on the Federal side of things. Yup, those I worked with and I all got one helluva good laugh over the law when it was introduced to us and we had to bone up on it. Today, we still laugh.
Sad, isn't it.
It is time we stopped giving any credence to a hitman for the racketeer influenced corrupt organization known as the Democratic Party. We already are allowing them to kick Republicans off committees for arbitrary, ambiguous, and abusive reasons. I hope Liz Cheney is history because she violated our principles of law, but Dick Morris is hoping to be seen as a prophet. In the end, Cheney is just another Democrat to me, like Morris, except the people did not elect Morris for any job. They did put Cheney in her job. It is up to them to decide; not Dick Morris.
I hope Morris is right!
Great: get rid of her Pelosi Schumer, McConnell, for starters and
we are on the path to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
I certainly respect Dick Morris's analysis, however I would like to add one point–when he says that 'Republican leadership is out of touch with their base'. That statement implies that the Republican leadership cares what their base thinks. I see no evidence to support that notion at all.
You're absolutely right. I notice that politicians are usually people who can't hold a real job.
That is how the offices of the legislators was originally set up, with part time politicians, unpaid part time politicians, if I remember correctly. When congress started getting paid, unfortunate stuff started happening to our government and country. Once people in office started receiving a paycheck, they opened themselves up to corruption. Once those that were in office started becoming lobbyists, the fix was in.
Those who are doubtful of that that I have posted, check out our history, you may be surprised.
46 should have been the best woman for the job; Nikki Haley.
Unions are exactly the same. Representatives go from father's to sons, etc. That does not mean they are the best for the job by family affiliation. Some people take that as a given. When you are supposed to be representing your members or constituents names should have nothing to do with it. And yes establishment republicans are out of touch with the very people they represent. Trump was popular because he wasn't a career politician, which is exactly what this country needs simply because politicians are under the impression they are the top dogs.
For the working class, Trump IS the Republican Party.
I think the GOP is more afraid to side with their base rather than not understanding it. They are in dreaded fear of the Dems, or should I say Socialist/Communists, and feel compelled to distance themselves from Trump.
You are absolutely right! 100 thumbs up!
