Dick Cheney

Christopher Barron, a Washington-based campaign consultant and lawyer, wants Dick Cheney to be your next President of the United States. He wants your help to convince the GOP’s last Great White Hope to run for president in 2012.

Yes, I know. At the mere mention of the word “draft,” Dick Cheney will be crying for a deferment.

From the Chicago Tibune’s Swamp:

An admirer of the former vice president filed papers today in Washington for a committee with a goal of getting Cheney to run for president in 2012.

“The 2012 race for the Republican nomination for president will be about much more then who will be the party’s standard bearer against Barack Obama,” says organizer Christopher Barron. “The race is about the heart and soul of the GOP.”

Barron calls Cheney, the former congressman and Defense Secretary in the first Bush administratiion who arguably was the most powerful vice president of all, who played a central role in the war strategies and national security initiatives of the second Bush admnistraton, who served two terms as vice president and served three other presidents in his time, the only member of the GOP “with the experience, political courage and unwavering commitment to the values that made our party strong.”

Barron served as the national political director for the Log Cabin Republicans, ” the nation’s only organization of Republicans who support fairness, freedom, and equality for gay and lesbian Americans.” The Log Cabin Rebublicans boast on their home page they are working to build an “inclusive GOP,” and they support “fair-minded Republican leaders.”

The Events Calendar on DraftCheney2012.com is full through August 2010:

  • Nov 26 Thanksgiving Day
  • Dec 25 Christmas Day
  • Jan 1 New Years Day
  • Jan 20 Dick Cheney’s Birthday
  • Aug 14 Lynne Cheney’s Birthday

Good luck to Mr. Barron. With Dick Cheney joining Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck as the prime contenders for their party’s 2012 presidential nomination, the GOP primary season should be one for the record books.
