Former Vice President Dick Cheney has been making a lot of news lately. Today he made more, and rallied his conservative followers when he made a suprise, unannounced appearance at CPAC – the Conservative Political Action Conference. “I think 2010 will be a phenomenal year for the conservative cause and I think Barack Obama is a one-term president,” Cheney said to a standing ovation.
Writing for ABCnews.com, Huma Khan reports:
He walked out to applause, chants of “Cheney” and a standing ovation as he appeared after daughter Liz Cheney’s speech.
“A welcome like that is almost enough to make me want to run for office,” Cheney said, laughing. “But I’m not going to do it.”
The newly minted senator from Massachusetts, Scott Brown, also made a surprise appearance to introduce former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
“One Democrat said, ‘There was no way in hell a Republican was going to get elected to the seat once held by Ted Kennedy.’ Well, here I am,” said Brown, who received a hero’s welcome. “We collectively absolutely have changed the course of politics in America.”
Romney, who is the frontrunner for the GOP 2012 nomination in the eyes of many Republicans, made a line-by-line attack against Obama and his agenda.
