Former Vice President Dick Cheney blasted Obama in an interview with ABC this morning.
Cheney told ABC that Barack Obama is worse than Jimmy Carter.
The Politico reported:
Former Vice President Dick Cheney said President Barack Obama is “one of our weakest presidents” and worse than Jimmy Carter.
“Obviously, I’m not a big fan of President Obama,” Cheney said in an interview that aired Monday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “I think he’s been one of our weakest presidents. I fundamentally disagree with him, philosophically. You’d be hard put to find any Democratic president that I’ve disagreed with more.”
“Worse than Jimmy Carter, from your perspective?” ABC’s Jon Karl asked him.
Cheney, whose hard line on terrorism came to define his public image, gave the president some credit.
“I wouldn’t say he’s been soft on terror, but I think he’s made a number of mistakes,” he said. “Bin Laden, fine. A lot of that intelligence that laid the groundwork for what ultimately led to the capture of bin Laden was a result of programs we had in place in the Bush administration.”
