“John is a man who understands the danger facing America, he’s a man who has looked into the face of evil and not flinched, he’s a man who is comfortable with responsibility, and has been since he joined the armed forces at the age of 17. He has earned our support and confidence, and the time is now to make him commander in chief,” Cheney told a rally in Laramie yesterday.
The endorsement may help McCain with loyal Republicans but not with those who disenchanted with the Bush-Cheney administration or independents angry over the stewardship of the last eight years.
“I’m delighted to support John McCain, and I’m pleased that he has chosen a running mate with executive talent, toughness, and common sense: our next vice-president, governor Sarah Palin,” he said.
Two words: game over.
