Former second daughter Liz Cheney launched into a withering attack on President Barack Obama and said it is time for Republicans to stop looking back and start seeing how they can stop the president's policies.

"It is time for Republicans to get over their loss in 2012," Dick Cheney's older daughter writes in The Wall Street Journal. "We are all that stands between this president's policies and a damaged and diminished America. It is time to get back in the fight."

Calls for the GOP to move left generally come from wrong-headed Republicans or Democrats, says Cheney, a former deputy assistant secretary of state in the George W. Bush administration, and now chairman of Keep America Safe, which focuses on national security issues and education.

"You can be sure that President Obama would welcome an America in which the Republican Party is preoccupied with remaking itself into a watered-down version of the Democrats," she says.

"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."

Cheney also levels some withering criticism at Obama, warning Republicans that if they buckle under to his policies now, "we won't have to wait until our sunset years for American freedom to be a distant memory."

"President Obama is the most radical man ever to occupy the Oval Office," she writes, noting that he appears determined to increase the national debt with more borrowing and spending.

And that’s only the beginning of the plans he has in store, she charges, calling his efforts pushing new gun control laws "a war on Americans' Second Amendment rights."

She also accuses the president of launching "a war on religious freedom," not to mention "a war on fossil fuels."

And, she reminds her Republican cohorts, he is "working to nationalize one-sixth of the economy with job-killing Obamacare."

Cheney isn't too impressed with Obama's handling of foreign policy, either.

"The president has so effectively diminished American strength abroad that there is no longer a question of whether this was his intent," she writes. "He is working to pre-emptively disarm the United States. He advocates slashing our nuclear arsenal even as the North Koreans threaten us and the Iranians close in on their own nuclear weapon. He has turned his back on America's allies around the world and ignored growing threats."
