Do people consider two land raiders cheese?
In 4th I would consider it a bad army list, but I can't ever seem 2 of them being considered cheesy, unless its like a 750 point game.
Yeah land raiders should realy onl be used in 1500 min games where the risk of ur oponent tryin to mob u with infanrty (crusader/one with hurricane bolters) or tanks (terminus ultra) for lower point games either devistator or the predator varients would be best as they can lay down an impressive torrent of fire.
I wouldn't consider it cheese in any army size - i'd almost consider it a waste of points. So much going into only two tanks!
Most armies should have a smattering of melta weaponry or equivalents anyway, I know both my IG and my imperial fists would have a pretty easy time wrecking them.

Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
Turn up to face my army with 2 LR's in less than 1000pts and it will be a short game. In bigger games there is no problem. I field upto 4 (2x standard, 1x promethius, 1x terminus) in my biggest games.

Not cheesy because they are pretty good. Although, like the others, I would consider it a waste of points in a small battle.
Hey! Look at the little.... Oh ****!
As of right now, yeah more of a waste of points, but come 5th edition that could all change.

I've actually used 2 in a list before with some great sucess... I agree that they are over priced for what you get that being said I have always used them to sheild things like rhinos etc...
Its definitely not cheesy though.
There is nothing more annoying when your Wyches with Plasma Grenades get "Always strikes First" for their combat drugs!
Its not cheesy as the Land Raider takes up a lot of points. In a small game you can ignore them and win by killing of the other half of his army with your own. A lascannon or 2 could remove them in a turn or 2 and then he is really screwed.
