Romney praises Cheney’s ‘wisdom and judgment’

Published

on

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney Wednesday gave voters in Arizona some insight into what kind of vice presidential running mate he would select.

The former Massachusetts governor told a town hall in Sun Lakes, Arizona he would pick someone who “could be president” like former Vice President Dick Cheney.

“I think it was last weekend I was watching C-SPAN, and I saw Vice President Dick Cheney and he was being asked questions about a whole host of issues — following 9/11, the affairs in various countries in the world,” Romney recalled, according to NBC’s First Read.

“And I listened to him speak and said whether you agree or disagree with him, this a man of wisdom and judgment, and he could have been president of the United States,” he said, adding, “That’s the kind of person I’d like to have — a person of wisdom and judgment.”

At the same time, Romney did not rule out picking a “tea party person” for the VP slot.

Romney has also called Cheney’s 2009 criticism of President Barack Obama’s national security policy “direct, well-reasoned, and convincing.”

While the former vice president didn’t endorse Romney in 2008, his daughter, Liz, did join the candidate’s campaign.

Cheney, who left office with a 13 percent approval rating, has not said who he will support in 2012.
