Fresh off her op-ed in Friday's issue of The Wall Street Journal, Liz Cheney, political pundit and daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, appeared on Fox News the same morning to discuss the future of the GOP.

"Republicans are often criticized in the mainstream media as being obstructionists," Cheney said.

"Across the board [President Barack Obama's] policies are so dangerous that it is not obstructionism to block them," she added. "It is patriotism."

Cheney made many references to her Wall Street Journal op-ed on air, reitirating her desire to see the party move on from 2012 but still keep its conservative values. From the op-ed:

It is time to defend our values with vigor and courage. We are conservatives. We believe in limited government, low taxes, a strong national defense, individual freedoms, self-reliance, the importance of the family, and the miracle and authority of America's founding documents. We know that government is best that governs least and governs closest to the people. We know that the private sector is the engine of economic growth. We know that America is the exceptional nation, the best that has ever existed. We know that the men and women who wear the uniform of the U.S. military are the greatest fighting force and the greatest force for good that the world has ever known.
