Obama Goes to Town on Cheney’s Endorsement of McCain

CNN

The Democrat pounces on Vice President Cheney’s praise for McCain Saturday.

Says in Pueblo, Colorado: “That endorsement didn’t come easy. Senator McCain had to vote 90 percent of the time with George Bush and Dick Cheney to get it.”

“So George Bush may be in an undisclosed location, but Dick Cheney’s out there on the campaign trail because he’d be delighted to pass the baton to John McCain.”

McCain response: “Barack Obama and Dick Cheney aren’t just cousins, they’ve shared support for the Bush energy policy and the out-of-control spending that John McCain has fought to oppose.” Read full response here.
