LIZ CHENEY: I Am The Modern Abraham Lincoln

Speaking at a concession speech following her nearly 40 point landslide Republican primary defeat to Trump-endorsed candidate Harriet Hageman, Rep. Liz Cheney compared herself to Abraham Lincoln, who famously had a long string of electoral losses before being chosen as the first Republican nominee for president and winning the White House.

Her remarks specifically touched on the Lincoln’s electoral failures in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate prior to becoming America’s 16th president, which many take as an indication Cheney will pursue her own political campaign in 2024.

“The great and original champion of our party, Abraham Lincoln, was defeated in elections for the Senate and the House before he won the most important election of all,” Cheney said. “Lincoln ultimately prevailed, he saved our Union, and he defined our obligation as Americans for all of history.”

“Speaking at Gettysburg of the great task before us, Lincoln said, ‘That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain – that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth’,” said Cheney quoting Lincoln’s famous 1863 Gettysburg Address.

She the compared herself to Lincoln: “As we meet here tonight, that remains our greatest and most important task.”

Cheney also claimed that she could have “easily” avoided the 4th worst congressional primary defeat since the 1960s if she had heard the voices of her voters, and supported election integrity and supporting 45th President Donald Trump. Still, Cheney proudly boasted that she refused to listen to her constituents.

“Two years ago. I won this primary with 73% of the vote. I could easily have done the same again,” Cheney declared. “The path was clear, but it would’ve required that I go along with President Trump’s lie about the 2020 election…That was a path I could not and would not take.”

“This primary election is over, but now the real work begins,” she said during her speech, adding that “I have said since January 6 that I will do whatever it takes to ensure Donald Trump is never again anywhere near the Oval Office — and I mean it.”

A overwhelmingly victorious Hageman credited her resounding win over Cheney on Tuesday to the latter’s “obsession” with former president Trump, Valiant News reported.

In reaction to Cheney’s concession speech, Hageman said “It doesn’t surprise me that she would revert to those same old talking points, because that’s really in large part what got her defeated.”

    Folks, these people want nothing less than a war. It is not solvable politically.
    Obama and Liz and the Never Trumper Antifa group The Lincoln Project are all the same and must be stopped. Why?
    Their favorite President, the namesake of The Lincoln Project, are the same.
    Lincoln started a Civil War against the South, his “deplorables”.
    Nearly 700000 died in that war.
    Figure it out.
    These people need to be dealt with before they succeed in Civil War 2.
    Wake up people. They won’t quit until we are dead and like the great Dictator Abe wi not allow secession if they are in power.

    If she is going to brag that she didn’t listen to the people who voted her into office, then she deserves her defeat.

    Mr. White!… if I owned this website, and I discovered that some “commenter” was taking down another commenter’s free speech, then I’d remove such an individual from my threads and blacklist/ block the IP address of the offending PERPETRATOR! In addition, I would then contact the Cyber Unit of my Local Police Division and inform a Representative therein, that a visitor has been banned from my site… and then convey to the Representative, the IP Address of the PERP who has Jan6ed/ AlexJonesed a stranger’s free speech… and pointing out to the Representative, that inasmuch as free speech is a SUPREME PROVISION within the U.S. Constitution and within the UDHR (and thus, making it much more significant than the U.S. Criminal Code!), it is essential that a repeat offense be treated by police in accordance with it’s̲ severity!

    Liz, what an abject, total fool you are! Abe Lincoln had more ability and moral fiber under his toenails than you have or will ever have. By the way, the ad you famous father did for you WAS NOT ANY HELP WITH THAT EVIL EXPRESSION ON HIS FACE. IT MUST BE A FAMILY TRAIT BECAUSE EACH TIME YOU BEGIN A RANT ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP YOUR FACE BECOMES A FACSIMILE OF HIS! GO FIND SOMETHING ELSE TO DO WITH THE REMAINDER OF YOUR LIFE, MAYBE THIS TIME SOMETHING THAT WILL ENABLE YOU TO REALLY CONTRIBUTE TO THE GLORY OF THE UNITED STATES AND NOT TEAR IT DOWN.
