Liz Cheney Pretends She Cares About Government Officials Lying To Americans

Liz Cheney has suddenly discovered that she doesn't like U.S. officials and politicians lying to Americans about matters of national security.

The RNC's Reince Priebus wasn't the only one on Fox News Sunday throwing every ounce of poop against the wall to attack former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton over their fake Benghazi "scandal." Faux "news" regular Liz Cheney took right up where Priebus left off with the name calling, and surprise, surprise, she now has a problem with politicians and officials lying to the American people over matters of national security.

Someone needs to tell her to take that up with her daddy Dick. Chris Wallace sure as hell wasn't going to do it.

WALLACE: How strong is Clinton's record as Secretary.

CHENEY: Well, I think you saw in the kind of grasping for answers of Sen. McCaskill, it's not very strong. There's not much there and I think that she's got a real problem. You know, there's a lot of complicated coverage of Benghazi that's gone on for good reasons.

But at the end of the day what happened was, we know an effort to mislead the American people about what happened on September 11th, 2012, because we know real time that people knew then that it was an al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist attack.

Hillary Clinton was at the center of that effort and when you have a situation in which you've been in the center of an effort to mislead the American people about a national security matter, and you've done so for political reasons – they did it because they knew it would hurt the president's election capability – that's a very significant problem, and I think frankly it calls into fitness her ability to be president.

So it's not politics. What we're dealing with here is something that goes to the very core of what we expect from our Commander in Chief and our public servants and she's got a big problem that she's going to have to consider as she makes this decision going forward.
