Cheney: 'I Worship The Ground That Paul Ryan Walks On' (VIDEO)


"I worship the ground that Paul Ryan walks on," Cheney said. "I think he's an enormously talented individual and he's trying to do the right thing. And [he] deserves all the support we can provide him. And I hope he doesn't run for president because that would ruin a good man who's got a lot of work to do as the chairman of the House Budget Committee."

Ryan's push to privatize Medicare as part of a budget plan has become a contentious issue, which came to a head this week with the GOP's surprise loss in the NY-26 special election.
