Former Vice President Dick Cheney (file)
Back away slowly, Paul Ryan. Do not run or panic. Just stay calm and pretend like one of the most polarizing figures in our nation’s history — often compared to Darth Vader — didn’t just endorse you.
Dick Cheney showered the congressman with praise, according to the Houston Chronicle. "I worship the ground" that "Paul Ryan walks on," said the former vice president in a public appearance. “I hope he doesn’t run for president because that would ruin a good man who has a lot of work to do.”
Such as selling his plan to get rid of Medicare. When you're trying to appeal to as many voters as possible right now, Dick Cheney is not helping your case.
Ryan has been having a rough time, too. His budget plan has been blamed for the Democrats' big upset in the special election for New York's 26th Congressional District.
