Remember last week when Chip Reid and Rick Klein were getting the vapors about Gibbs ripping into Cheney and Limbaugh at the daily presser? And then remember how we were told it was a terrible gaffe and all that? About that:
Congressional Republicans are telling Dick Cheney to go back to his undisclosed location and leave them alone to rebuild the Republican Party without his input.
Displeased with the former vice-president’s recent media appearances, Republican lawmakers say he’s hurting GOP efforts to reinvent itself after back-to-back electoral drubbings.
The veep, who showed a penchant for secrecy during eight years in the White House,has popped up in media interviews to defend the Bush-Cheney record while suggesting that the country is not as safe under President Obama.
The story then goes on to list a number of Republicans who are basically telling the former Vice President to shut up and Cheney himself. And the really awesome part of all this? Unlike Rush Limbaugh, Cheney won’t be getting any apologies from the congressmen.
