What a man!

What kind of man is Dick Cheney? Several days ago he told America that he has a gay daughter. He said he loves her and is proud of her accomplishments. Further, he’s against a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.

At the RNC, after his speech, his family joined him on stage for a photo op. Not really. His gay daughter was not allowed on stage. He let that happen. He disavowed his own daughter and brought shame to his family stooping to the pressure of extremists within his party. What a man!

We are left with only two possible answers. First, he does not love and respect his daughter. Second, and far worse, he allowed that insult to himself, his daughter and his family without protest. Where is the integrity, leadership and where is alleged courage? Sorry folks, but the man has shown by this one reprehensible act that he is not qualified to be a heartbeat away from the presidency. If he will sell out his own daughter, what can the rest of us expect?

His act was anti-family, un-American and cowardly.
