 June 18 2014 wed-CNN Guest: Point of Cheney’s Anti-Obama Op-Ed Was to Rehabilitate Daughter

After Dick and Liz Cheney’s op-ed in the Wall Street Journal last night excoriating President Barack Obama’s foreign policy in the wake of the deteriorating situation in Iraq, CNN’s John King asked if the Republicans really wanted the Bush team “leading the charge” on this issue given their history with it.

The New York Times’ Jonathan Martin suggested the op-ed served a more personal function for Cheney: the political rehabilitation of his daughter following an aborted Senate bid. “The party wants to look to the future,” Martin said. “However, the Cheney family wants to look to the future, too, which is the point of that op-ed. It’s about helping out Liz Cheney, get her more of a platform, so she can start a political comeback of her own. This is less about Barack Obama or Dick Cheney; it’s about Liz Cheney and the next generation.” “It’s also about Rand Paul, by the way,” Martin added (the Pauls and Cheneys have beef). “This is about asserting the role of the hawks in their coalition, in their party, and making sure 2016 they nominate a hawk.”
