McCain Still "Proud of Sarah Palin"

Posted By on Tue, Jul 31, 2012 at 2:00 PM

There was been a dust-up in the GOP universe after Dick Cheney, the former vice-president in the Bush administration, told ABC's This Week on Sunday's that John McCain's pick of Sarah Palin as his vice-presidential nominee was a mistake.

Cheney said:


I like Governor Palin. I've met her. I know her. ... Attractive candidate. But based on her background—she'd only been governor for, what, two years—I don't think she passed that test ... of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake.

McCain returned fire on Fox and Friends yesterday morning, telling host Brian Kilmeade:

Well, I’m always glad to get comments four years later. Look, I respect the vice president. He and I had strong disagreements as to whether we should torture people or not. I don’t think we should have. But the fact is I’m proud of Sarah Palin. I’m proud of the job she did. I’m proud of the job she continues to do. Everybody has their own views and I respect those views. But I’m proud of what we did.

Time has more details.
