How to find its bearings?
Former Vice President Cheney said the answer is not to "move dramatically to the left." He told Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer that Republicans can "win elections when we have good, solid conservative principles to run upon and based our policies on those principles."
The discussion on the heart of the Republican party has been a hot one since the November election. It heated up again last week when former Secretary of State Colin Powell said the party would best served if Rush Limbaugh weren't around.
To that Limbaugh said that Powell should leave the GOP.
Who does Cheney side with?
"Well if I had to choose in terms of being a Republican, I’d go with Rush Limbaugh," Cheney said. "My take on it was Colin had already left the party -- I didn't know he was still a Republican."
"You think that's he not a Republican?" Schieffer followed.
"He endorsed the Democratic candidate for president, Barack Obama, so I assume that's some indication of his loyalty and his interest," Cheney said.
