I think the GOP is getting a little cocky but allowing Cheney to speak at the CPAC conference. I mean having a self described waterboarder who left office with a 25 percent favorable rating, will only give Dems a longer period to keep in the spotlight indefinetely. All the other GOP members of congress, candidates and those who have to run for re-election, having Cheney campaign for you is ridiculous.

CPAC is run by the American Conservative Union, not the GOP.

And waterboarding has a net favorable rating with the American people. Again, media bias being shown through here again with liberals.

Show me that poll FM. I'd love to see it.

Now that the US has Obama to compare him too, Cheney doesn't look nearly as bad. Also, as everyone here has been saying, a lot can change in a few months or a year, as is evidenced by Cheney's increase in popularity. It's irrelevant how unpopulaer he was 14 months ago.

X,

You ask and thou shalt receive. Peace be upon you my brother.

POll: Fifty-eight percent (58%) of U.S. voters say waterboarding and other aggressive interrogation techniques should be used to gain information from the terrorist who attempted to bomb an airliner on Christmas Day.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 30% oppose the use of such techniques, and another 12% are not sure.

CPAC GOP what's the difference? I would like to see another poll other than Rasmussen regarding waterboarding. I don't trust any pollster that is a regular fixture on Fox News.

by the way, Republicans in Congress have a lower approval rating than the Democrats. i think a lot of politicians on both sides are going to be in for a rude awakening in November.

i will give Republicans this. they know how to spin things to work in their favor. We just went through 8 years of possibly the worse President ever (not only my opinion, most historians rank him there) and they seemed to have turn everything around on the democrats. i mean Mccain slammed Obama for bringing up Bush in his SOTU when i hear Republicans still bashing Carter continuously. Reagan did it at least for 2-3 years.

Ryan:

Most historians also agree that you can't properly judge a presidency until 20 or so years down the road. With that said, I think he was a crappy president. However, he is not the Republican party, and he is not up for election, so those that are "turning things around" are not Bush.

"CPAC GOP what's the difference?"

One is the conference where Ron Paul wins the straw poll for president. The other is were he won 35 of 2,380 delegates.

The proplem for the GOP is that a lot of conservatives are as angry at them as they are at the Democrats. There is a real danger that real some states will have enough of a conservative third party movement to through a few races to the Democrats (not including the apparently fake Nevada Tea Party).
