Cheney: Romney ‘Only Man’ For Foreign Policy
WILSON, Wyo. (AP) — Former Vice President Dick Cheney is telling Republican donors that GOP candidate Mitt Romney is the “only man” who can make the right foreign policy decisions for the country.
Cheney on Thursday was helping raise more than $4 million at events in Wyoming for Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
Romney says Cheney is a “great American leader.” The presidential candidate didn’t mention former President George W. Bush in a nearly 20-minute speech.
Romney fundraisers flew from across the country to attend a private dinner with Cheney. The former vice president remains controversial because of his support for hawkish foreign policies and enhanced interrogation techniques that many consider torture.
Cheney and Romney spoke at a general reception at Teton Pines Country Club ahead of a dinner at Cheney’s home.
