    Liz Cheney dropping out of Wyoming Senate race

    Liz Cheney is ending her campaign to be the next senator from Wyoming, dropping her primary challenge to Republican incumbent Mike Enzi.The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, in a written statement released Monday morning, cited health issues in the family.
    "Serious health issues have recently arisen in our family, and under the circumstances, I have decided to discontinue my campaign," she said. "My children and their futures were the motivation for our campaign and their health and well-being will always be my overriding priority. ... Though this campaign stops today, my commitment to keep fighting with you and your families for the fundamental values that have made this nation and Wyoming great will never stop."

    I hope her and her family is ok, but regardless of the reason, it is now Enzi. Thoughts?

    You ask for thoughts on Enzi?
    He can now stop acting foolishly tacking to the TEA.
    Get back to being a "normal" GOP senator, unlike his fellow Wyoming hack Sen. Barasso .

    I have a feeling that there's more to it than health issues. Maybe money, but the whole thing doesn't seem like it was well run anyway. Maybe Dad convinced her that it was too important to keep the seat Republican than to have an interneicine fight? Who knows.

    I hope her family is OK, but I'm not totally buying it as the only reason.

    Did I say that?
    You asked for thoughts on Enzi.
    I praised him.
    One out of two isn't bad in a RED state.

    A good GOP'er, or Democrat for that matter, is one that realizes they were sent to do a job. And that job is to govern, not to hold Americans hostage to their ideological fits.

    Very few in Congress are doing that these days, in fact I'd say the leadership of both houses have not done their jobs. Leading from behind isn't limited to Obama.

    It will be hard for the House to do anything with 97 scheduled work days before the elections.
    Dems are simply too afraid of Can'tor and they allow his sabotage to fly under the radar.

    Yeah.....her campaign was going nowhere.
    The typical "I'm quitting to spend more time with my family..." excuse doesn't usually include health issues.
    Hopefully, her little ones are OK.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.
