Dick Cheney Skips His Daughter Mary Cheney Same-Sex Wedding

Both Lynne and Dick Cheney declined to attend their daughter Mary Cheney's wedding to her lesbian partner.

Cheney didn't want Mary to be part of the political debate about same-sex marriage. His and his wife's presence would only be a 'distraction' on such an important day for his daughter.

We wished them well, he said.

Wouldn't it be up to his daughter whether she wanted her parents to attend her wedding? Since he's said that he believes she & her partner should have a right to marry, he can't be boycotting. Maybe he's too sick to attend.

by Anonymousreply 207/30/2012

No, Dick and Lynne Cheney are the ones who didn't want to be part of the same-sex marriage debate. So the skipped the ceremony.

Of course, Mary will give them a pass on it. No reason to risk that huge inheritance based on Iraq war profiteering.

This situation reminds me of the 2004 GOP convention when Cheney accepted the VP nomination for the 2nd time. When he went over to his family onstage after the speech, Mary was not there....

And the media made little note of it. The MSM was scared shitless of the Cheneys.

I believe not even going to your own daughter's wedding speaks louder on all fronts than whether you've publicly endorsed one position or another. Blood is thicker than water. Then again, he probably has ice water for blood anyway. . . . . .

Congratulations to Qusay Cheney. I'm sure her cunt of a sister Uday will be there.

And what kind of horse's ass (in this thread) attempts to justify his absence with some bullshit about donating his time and money?

Let's go through the checklist, shall we?

When he was IN power, he watched Bush and the GOP attempt to push through a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. He said nothing.

When he *retired* he decided to claim support for gay marriage - and we all know that has solely to do with his daughter, because heaven forbid a GOP turd be selfless.

Is he hoping to be invited into a potential Romney cabal? Is that why he won't attend his own daughter's wedding? What else could be the reason since he's retired? The fact that politics supersedes his own daughter's wedding is all you need to know about this piece of shit - not that we didn't already know he's a piece of shit.

The log cabinettes stupidly went on and on about a retired Cheney supporting gay marriage. I'd love to see the excuse for this one.

So there you have it, motherfucking log cabinette trash who shit on Obama for his support DURING A CAMPAIGN.

You suck on Dick's shriveled balls for supporting gay marriage when he has NO POWER. He's has always been a coward. He has always let others fight the battles. He dodged the draft several times and he dodged this issue when he could've done something brave. He's an evil piece of shit who has never stuck his own neck out. He has lived his life as a coward and he will die a coward.

[quote]Cheney also said that he didn't attend his daughter Mary's June wedding to her partner, ostensibly because the women did not want a media circus ensuing.

BULLSHIT.

[quote]“I’m sure it was fine," Cheney said, according to the Associated Press. "We wished them well. [Mary] wanted to avoid having it be a media circus or having it become part of the political debate. So (wife) Lynn and I were very proud and happy and congratulated them.”

[quote] No, Dick and Lynne Cheney are the ones who didn't want to be part of the same-sex marriage debate. So they skipped the ceremony.

And how is that going to leave them out of the debate? There daughter is still gay and just got married to another woman. If people are going to publicly talk about mary's wedding to another woman they aren't going to hold back just because the cheney's didn't attend. I'm sure they don't want the Democrats talking about it and using them as an example of why gay marriage should be legal. But their not attending wont' stop that. It has no bearing on it. The Dems can still bring up the fact that the former vice president of the United States has a gay daughter who just married her partner of many years. They can also bring up the fact that they have children - who are the cheney's grandchildren. They can also state the fact that cheney has donated money to equal rights campaigns

I (gulp) also agree it was best to skip the wedding. This way, the wedding will be about the brides. If Mephistopheles and his dyke-fiction writing wife had attended, the attention and focus would have been all about them. They let the day belong to the happy couple.

The only media circus the Dick and Lynne Cheney want to avoid is being publicly linked to their supoprt of their daughter's gay marriage in such a blatant way. The Cheney's still want whatever influence they can muster among those who are completely opposed to marriate equality.

Also, with Liz Cheney trying to unseat the current GOP senator from Wyoming using a farther-to-the-right platform, such publicity wouldn't help. Did Liz attend the ceremony? I could more likely imagine her not coming.

Link, R10. Link to anything that claims Dick Cheney donated "his time and money" to any gay rights organization. Accepting speaking fees to address the Log Cabin Republicans does not count.

You make it sound like the Cheneys are passionate defenders of gay rights. They are anything but. They are the extremely conservative parents of a lesbian daughter whom they're embarrassed of. They'd no doubt be much happier if said lesbian daughter had repressed her sexuality and married a good Republican man to keep up appearances, but because their lesbian daughter is so obviously an enthusiastic rug-muncher and LPGA fan that there's no denying the truth to anyone with two eyes and a brain, so they grit their teeth and claim they love her just the same, even though they avoid public appearances with her and declined to attend her wedding.

The idea that they stayed away to avoid "a media circus" is absurd. Mary Cheney is not Chelsea Clinton. The Cheneys are hardly the Kennedys -- they're not even the Bushes. The paparazzi have zero interest in them and hard news political reporters have very little interest in the weddings of politician's family members outside of sitting Presidents and the three families I mentioned. Dick Cheney was never President and as far as political dynasties go, the Cheneys are strictly D-list. If they had just planned this privately and attended I seriously doubt a "media circus" would have disrupted anything. The Bidens and Gores are two Vice-Presidential famies who've had no problem keeping the media circus from invading their private lives without avoiding certain family members.

I cannot believe the log cabinettes trying to spin this. They skipped out on their own daughter's wedding because of POLITICS.

You're probably right, but I suspect that in the echo chamber that makes up the Cheney's existence, they're the subject of endless media speculation. The recent documentary THE WORLD ACCORDING TO DICK CHENEY only encouraged this view, I'll bet.

After Mary's book flopped faster than THE LONE RANGER, you'd think they'd have a clue.

AAARGH! For Christ's sake don't you know anything about our government and how and why the bi-cameral congress works? The Senate is an institution that empowers states rights by having each state represented equally by two Senate members, regardless of population. As you may not have noticed in the House of Representatives, the number of legislators is apportioned according to population size! Therefore Wyoming has but a single at-large Congressperson, while California has 53.

Don't they teach fucking civics where you went to Middle School!?

Why not treat yourself to some knowledge and read "The Dance of Legislation", and you can learn all that, and more.

This is where I don't understand how my brain comprehends the difference and yours does not. It's been how many years now and yet you've either been in hibernation or just ignored the HUGE difference between Cheney and Obama, and who they were when they came out in support?

A man who has a gay daughter sat silent as VP of the United States for EIGHT years. During his time in power, he watched an attempt to *amend* the constitution to ban gay marriage. He then retired (ie.,no influence, no risk to his selfish ass) and came out in favor of gay marriage. THEN, his little Uday wanted to run for office in WY. He *defended* his little Uday's anti-gay stance because for that creep, politics and power supersede Qusay's dignity.

You are pathetic to attempt to give credit to vermin for his tepid support and even more ridiculous to act like it was far more magnanimous than the sitting president coming out in support.. and he did it when he still had another election coming.

Learn the difference.
